Angel City by Jon Steele
Publisher: Blue Rider Press
Hardcover (528 pages)
Purchase the book: Amazon
Jon Steele’s electrifying new novel brings together his unforgettable characters from The Watchers in an action-packed romp that easily stands alone, even as it reveals more of the earthly—and cosmic—mysteries of the Angelus trilogy.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.
Sadly, Angel City did not capture my attention. I found the prologue to be extremely boring. It really did not seem to have anything to do with the rest of the book. Once past the prologue it did not get much better. While the book was well written, I felt that the author did not draw the reader into the story. A story should draw the reader into the story, captivate them if you will from the very beginning and keep them until the very end. If you are expecting that type of book, then you will be disappointed with this one. I must admit that I gave up completely on the book halfway through it. I just couldn't force myself to finish it.
Now while, I myself did not enjoy this book, you on the other hand may enjoy the book.
I gave this book 2 stars out of a total of 5.
