Angel Time

The Songs of the Seraphim 1

Anne Rice, on top form, returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a dark gothic novel of suspense about assassins and angels, set in worlds past - the first in a new series called The Songs of the Seraphim.

Toby O'Dare - Lucky the Fox - is a contract killer of underground fame. In his youth Lucky had dreamt of being a priest, instead he fell into a life danger and violence.

Living under a series of aliases he long ago lost any sense of his true self, becoming a pawn to 'The Right Man, a contractor of dark and unknown allegiances.

Lucky has one place where he can be without disguise, but his latest assignment is at this sanctuary, The Mission Inn. And it is an order to kill. Into this nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions, comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save lives, rather than destroy them. Now he has his chance to repair the damage of his past.

Praise for Angel Time

Rice is a spellbinder


Anne Rice has a rich, dark, romantic imagination capable of glorious flights of splendid invention

Mail on Sunday

Nothing less than a magician

New York Times Book Review

Her work has echoes of the freewheeling, fast-talking style of the eighteenth-century novel... lush, baroque prose and fantastical plots... Rice keeps her nerve and her triumphant sense of poise


An enjoyable read


Dark, thoughtful fantasy


It's a testament to Rice's skills as a storyteller, and to her ability to bring 13th century England to stark and vivid life

The Guardian
