Author Jon Steele has put the finishing touches on his epic good vs. evil Angelus Trilogy with The Way of Sorrows, following The Watchers and Angel City.
The 512-page finale blends religion, legend, myth, history, science and the supernatural to create the world in which angels walk among us, including Detective Jay Harper and roadie/sidekick Krinkle. They’re racing around the globe to rescue Katherine Taylor and locate her missing son, Max — who must be found to avert nuclear armageddon and save humanity from mass extinction.
Steele, an award-winning news cameraman who’s no stranger to war zones, says he always knew how everything would end for his protagonists. And that’s after he has written “three books, 1,496 pages and a little less than half a million words.”
“As far as the story itself, no, nothing surprised me,” Steele says in press materials. “I knew the ending of the trilogy before I started writing The Watchers. It was the same with Angel City and The Way of Sorrows: knowing the last sentence of each book before writing the first. So, all in all, the characters and plot ended as I imagined in the beginning.”
Never miss a local story.
