It's been almost three years since we left Detective Jay Harper and high-priced escort Katherine Taylor on the esplanade of Lausanne Cathedral, bruised and battered from a biblical showdown with the Nephilim. Katherine has retreated to small-town life in the woods of Washington State with her son, Max--and a close protection detail of heavily-armed, elite members of the Swiss Guard. Harper is living in Paris, haunted by voices in his head and bone-tired after what turns out to be two and a half million years on Earth.

Though Katherine and Harper have been prevented from remembering each other , baby Max has unwittingly stirred the interest of vengeful spirits--and only a worldwide (and cosmic) effort to save his life will bring Harper and Katherine together again.

Meanwhile, from the shadows steps a defrocked priest named Astruc, whose face looks as if it has been clawed by some terrible beast and who hides his eyes behind blue lenses. He and his brilliant young ward, Goose, have discovered something unfathomable in the Catacombs under Paris, something that will confirm that "the time of the prophecy" is at hand. . . .

Electrifying from its explosive first scene to its unexpected and shocking conclusion, Angel City reunites the unforgettable characters from The Watchers to reveal more of the earthly--and otherworldly--mysteries of the Angelus trilogy.

An interesting 300 page thriller. Unfortunately, it was about 450 pages. Either the writer or the editor is at fault; either way, this book should have been seriously tightened up before publication. This is a shame as some of the writing is superb.

The sequel to The Watchers brings us back to characters we have grown to love, Harper & Katharine and introduces new personalities which contribute to an equally compelling plot. I found this impossible to put down and read it in a few days! More history of the Cathars, the Watchers and their evil counterparts, form a past-paced and intriguing novel. The cliff-hanger ending will make the 3rd novel a must read.
