This is a fast-paced tale of intrigue, deception and betrayal. Madison McKenzie, a vacationing investigative reporter, overhears some old codgers talking about people disappearing, unexplained deaths and activity at the now defunct Annabelle Mine. Curiosity gets the better of her and she decides to investigate. What she unearths is a conspiracy of international proportions.
What we've suspected is true. They're everywhere around us. Angels, that is, as nine of this generations boldest and most acclaimed fantasy writers tell us in this brilliant collection. At once highly imaginative and intensely spiritual, these stories are performed by top stars of television, film and music, who have themselves explored various areas of paranormal. It's a feast that will leave you infinitively more hopeful and a little less alone.
