I'm always impressed when an author can take established mythology, legend, fact or fiction and make it their own. J.S. Wayne deftly weaves biblical lore within a contemporary tapestry, making for a familiar, yet unique and plausible reality mixed with elements of fantasy.
Angels Cry continues the tale of Moradiel, a Soul Bearing Angel who falls in love with human Ariel, sparing her life by altering events per-ordained by a higher power.
On the run from the Angel of Death, Azrael, they make their stand, of all places, in Sin City, Las Vegas. I found this to be an amusing touch by Mr. Wayne.
There is a large cast in this novel and while some may argue that to have many ancillary characters in a romance novel detracts from main thrust (pun intended) of the central protagonists of the story. I whole-heartedly disagree. The secondary characters, fully realized and textured, add dramatic texture and a bit of comic relief to the eventual showdown between Azrael and Moradiel.
Angels Cry is a story about the enduring power of love, and how it can literally, move Heaven and Hell.
