Another really good read...I am on a roll!!! Kudos to the author for weaving a whole new experience where the world includes androids, cyborgs and vampires! This was my first book by the author and also the first in a series. I cannot wait for the next installment. I'm thinking it will improve, as most series' do and potentially be a five star read.

This is one of the best books I’ve read this year! You got it all, romance, fairytale, science fiction, vampires, action, fantasy, secrets and so many surprises. Each chapter brought mystery and a surprise to it, which made it very hard to put the book down.
You have Anne, traumatized as a teenager and ran away from home and only went down the wrong road, until she met Doris who brought her out of the gutter. Years went by until Anne met Charlie, who is everything she ever wanted in a man, a re

I won Angels in the Mist through a goodreads giveaway. There is PTSD from a sexual assault in this book, just a warning as I know that there is content that could make some individuals very uncomfortable. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book, but about 3 chapters in I was hooked. This would not be a book I would normally buy, but I will be buying the next book in the series! It definitely is Sci-Fi, Paranormal with vampires, cyborgs, and nanites. I love it when the hero or heroine of a b ...more

The first installment in Ryan Southwick’s The Z-Tech Chronicles trilogy, has enough intensity and inventiveness for three books all by itself. Brimming with elements of practically every genre including exhilarating action-adventure, riveting sci-fi, urban fantasy and breathtaking romance, ANGELS IN THE MIST surprises and satisfies with every hairpin turn.

Wow. This is a wonderful new entry into the urban fantasy genre. The story revolves around a young woman who survived a traumatic event, fled to the San Francisco Bay Area, and works hard at overcoming her PTSD. Her quiet life is changed with the meeting of a unique man, and she becomes aware of dark forces at work. She joins the cause, and the action is fast and imaginative. The characters are well drawn and fascinating, and it was hard to put down. This new voice in the mist of San Francisco r ...more

What makes this work? Its a refreshing and unique adventure to follow!

I love the fact that this book explains the details of how things work and almost makes many impractical things seem practical.

The writing style was one of my favorites, the humor actually made me laugh. I love when authors can mix in wit and humor to break up the darker and serious elements of a book.

I had a lot of fun with this novel. It's a real page-turner with lots of action and suspense. I was, at times, a little frustrated because I wanted ANSWERS to my QUESTIONS, and I wasn't at all sure that I would get them before the next volume (or, horrors, the third!). Happily, the satisfaction/suspense ratio is nicely balanced and I came away with some good answers and some nice anticipation for the next installment.

It's long, with a lot of plot and all sorts of things going on (vampires! cyb

I won this book here and am glad what a fun read. Zima is sweet but a little psychotic. I like when i am reading a book where I can't figure out what is going on , love that. I won't talk about about the plot or anything cause I am terrible at writing reviews and wind up ruining the book for others. I will say go get this book and read it , was great. ...more

I raced through this one! Ryan Southwick’s deft writing and snappy pace makes Angels in the Mist a joy to read! The thing that stands out is how he has created such memorable characters.
Well thought out, characters actually made sense. Has a great plot and is overall, superbly written.

Strong characters. Solid writing. PTSD due to a sexual assault. Interesting urban fantasy. Parts were drawn out while the majority of the book was fast-paced.

I really liked this book. The story does deal with a brief traumatic event and PTSD challenges. So for some readers it may be considered a little dark. I however, found it to be romantic, adventurous, quirky, fun, and in some parts, light hearted. I thought Zima was endearing. The characters and storyline were different and definitely not predictable. I needed answers to all my questions! Before I knew it, I had finished the book!

This book was quite a bit of fun. The only thing that bothered me about it was the rape scene in the first chapter; it wasn't particularly graphic, but it was disturbing, though it was also needed to establish Anne's PTSD. This figured heavily in the rest of the book, which, in general, was a lot lighter than the first chapter.

Anne seems to be a magnet for unusual criminals and heroes of an odd sort, and much of the book is taken up with a love triangle between her and Zima and Charlie, which w

While there were parts of Angels in the Mist that I really enjoyed, overall it feels like a pulp-fiction fanfic novel. The characters, while having traumas in their backstories for "character", felt fairly one-dimensional - it wasn't difficult to understand any of their motivations, since they almost always drew on their defining moment. The book also felt oversaturated with sexuality, almost to the level where the Romance tag should be added, without much of the emotional and psychological leve ...more

Ryan Southwick decided to dabble at writing late in life, and quickly became obsessed with the craft. He currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two children.

His technical skills as a software developer, healthcare experience, and lifelong fascination for science fiction became the ingredients for his first series, The Z-Tech Chronicles, which combines these elements into a
