Angelus
by Sabrina Bennulis
Harper Voyager, $14.99, 387 pages
Published: February 2016

Angelus brings to conclusion the trilogy that began with Archon (click here for review) and continued with Covenant (click here for review), combining elements of Christian mythos, gender bending and gothic romance with lush, sensual descriptions.

 Angela Mathers has been duped and manipulated by Lilith to assume the throne and crown of Hell, which, among other consequences, diverts her from her soul’s purpose.  (But damn, does she ever look good wearing that iron crown! It sets off her mismatched eyes and long red hair.)   She can hardly reshape the world if she doesn’t remember herself, or her friends, or their potential.

Many powers, including angels fallen or loyal to the old order, are against her; bringing ruin to the way things are.  But “as things are” is not working out so well for creation. One of the greatest angels sees the inherent wrongness of the prevailing conditions and has shaped Angela to be the agent of change. The enigmatic Sophia is determined to improve humanity’s lot, and her love for Angela is unfailing.

There are a number of similarities between these books and Piers Anthony’s Incarnations of Immortality, but Bennulis’ storytelling is more emotional and much less political.  If you love the torment and upheaval of Game of Thrones, you will find more of same here, albeit on a spiritual rather than geographic scale!  – Chris Wozney
