The Book of Angels cover

    Kennedy's The Book of Angels is that rare beast, a novel that boasts tight plotting and suspense-laden narrative with style and literary profundity. A novel about imagination and will. The Book of Angels will delight both readers of the fantastic as well as those who seek more in fiction, a tour de force that transcends its raw materials
    Gordon Weaver, author of Cadence
    Quick and sharp as stiletto heels in an empty alley -- and just as ominous and sexy ... Thomas E. Kennedy has committed an oxymoron: he has written a profound thriller
    Askold Melnyczuk, novelist, poet and editor of Agni

From the dawn of history, magicians and poets have sought the land of the dead – magicians by force of will, poets by power of imagination. In The Book of Angels, fiction writer Michael Lynch is drawn into a chilling reality in which a ruthless magician employs the terror and commandments of magick – to know, to dare, to will, to keep silence – to harness the forces of Lynch's imagination in a bid for the ultimate journey. Lynch's only weapon with which to defend himself and his family is his power to dream, the only recourse of his spirit, his desire to love. In an eerie journey to the farthest edge of mortality, magicians, witches, bad priests, teachers, and writers walk the streets of an everyday American world playing with life, imagining death.
