Shadow of Death

Book Two of the Chosen Chronicles

Oh wow, that is the only expression that can describe a great book. I can't wait for the next book in the Chosen Chronicles. I hope that there is a next book. I loved every minute of it.

We are brought back to the world of Angel and Father Notus once again. Angel's reputation precedes him. He appears to the council, where the Chosen find out once and for all that Angel is most definitely "The Angel of Death." After being released by the council of the Chosen, Angel and Father Notus find themselves on their way to North America.the Toronto area to be exact. From there things take a most interesting and unusual twist. It leaves the reader anxious for more. I hope that other readers enjoy this beautiful, sometimes painful, and heartrending journey of the Angel that leads to peace as much as I did.

Book Blurb for Shadow of Death

Death is the beginning. Life is the shadow.

Released from more than one hundred years of revenge, the Angel of Death is no longer a tool for the Grand Council of the Chosen. He is finally free to return to a semblance of a life with Father Paul Notus.

Haunted by nightmares of his past misdeeds and failings the Angel wants nothing more than to be left alone. It is across the Atlantic, in a foreign country, that he joins Notus, taking up the mantle once more as a protector in a land where those who would see him dead have flourished.

Corbie Vale has not forgotten what the Angel has done. His own burning need to see the Angel humiliated and Destroyed sets into motion a carefully seeded plan despite warnings of greater retribution from the God of Death himself.

Now in Corbie’s territory, the Angel’s sword becomes the lure to a trap, one that changes the Angel by giving him what he never dreamed of – mortality.
