Angel Dance: A Shadow Council Case Files Novella: Quest for Glory Part 3
by John G. Hartness, Melissa Gilbert (Editor)
Quincy Harker attracts trouble. It is an unfortunate fact of life for his friends and associates. If they know Quincy, Quincy leads trouble right to them. The Shadow Council Case Files is a series of eight novellas. Quincy has to find missing angels who have lost their memory and get them back on the path to heaven. Since Quincy cannot be everywhere at once, his teams is set out to track down the lost souls. The first book in the series Calling All Angels, featured Jo Harrison, descendant of the mythical John Henry. In Angel Dance, the reader gets to spend time with Adam Franks.
Adam Franks is a complicated man. He is the sum of his parts. Adam’s father, or more accurately creator, was a certain Dr. Frankenstein. Adam is now over one hundred and fifty years old. He is abnormally tall and big and scarred. He also seems to be indestructible. This is not the two dimensional monster of Hammer Studio films. This creature is a very complex man who wants what all people want but also realizes that his very existence precludes a normal life.
Adam journeys to New Orleans, one of my favorite cities, to track down one of the lost angels. The Shadow Council's members are not the only ones looking for the angels. There are demons at every turn trying to beat Adam in finding the angel. Adam’s strength and indestructibility will be tested as well as his humanity. The story is fast paced and the characters interesting. Another fun entry in the Quincy Harker universe.
I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
