But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
Angel Time - Anne Rice
Toby O'Dare – Lucky the Fox – is a contract killer of underground fame. In his youth Lucky had dreamt of being a priest, instead he fell into a life danger and violence.
Living under a series of aliases he long ago lost any sense of his true self, becoming a pawn to ‘The Right Man, a contractor of dark and unknown allegiances.
Lucky has one place where he can be without disguise, but his latest assignment is at this sanctuary, The Mission Inn. And it is an order to kill. Into this nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions, comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save lives, rather than destroy them. Now he has his chance to repair the damage of his past.
I was a big fan of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles - or at least the first few. I picked up Angel Time as it read like a return to form - or at least I hoped it would be. But I haven't read it yet as I'm scared it won't be very good! Has anyone else out there read it? Or should I be the trailblazer? :-)
