Interesting so far only problem is that apparently no one informed the author (I'm figuring Ms. Holder) that "Angel/Angelus's" original name was Liam when he was human. Somewhat important thing to know when writing about the time when he was alive in a flashback.. certainly something an editor should have caught.

This was an odd story. I think the writer was trying for time shifts by using unusual segues. It didn't work. There are bits of the story that don't belong, they are nice fro showing th

Great story. My only complaint is that once again there are flashbacks to Angel's pre-vamp days and he is referred to as Angelus. Again...his human name was Liam....

The first original story from the 'Angel' novelizations. Written by Nancy Holder (who did it's predecessor 'City Of'), this book is a nice read for those who want adventures between the episodes of the original show. Originally taking place in the first half of Angel series one, this places Angel, Cordelia, and Doyle on the hunt for a supernatural being that is targeting immigrants.

The story itself has a lot of promise, and it starts off really steady, but half way into the book it starts to sl

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

A book based on the television show. One would assume that when a author writes about characters of a tv show that the author would have his or her facts straight. Not so in this book. I found a couple of different glaring mistakes. These mistakes were not tiny mistakes but mistakes that moved the plot along. For this reason, I could not give it a higher rating. Also, I believe more time of the story was spent on the villians than the characters that are the reason we are reading this book. My r ...more
Angel Investigations gets involved in an ancient conspiracy to bring the god of death into the earthly plane. Doyle's still alive at this point, and I always felt his character shouldn't have been killed off eight episodes into the show, so that was a plus. And Cordelia's not crazy - also a development that I think contributed to the show's demise. The plot's nothing special, and since the books are technically not considered "canon," I guess I can't get mad about timeline inconsistencies, but t ...more

Nancy Holder has written an excellent novel about Angel's life in Los Angeles. And, just like in the TV show, Angel, Doyle, and Cordelia find themselves having to fight a creature of evil. This time around they are dealing with an evil god based in Indonesian lore. It's an interesting story with a surprise ending. Nancy Holder has always done well writing Buffy and Angel stories. With both series gone, these books allow us to continue to get our fix of these two shows.

That was so fucking anticlimactic. The story was interesting till the last 10 pages. Then it just fizzled out. And so many stories were started but left hanging. Just whispers of rumors of how they ended.
