Book 3 of The Angel Brings Fire series
Having saved the Sun's third planet from a Doomsday comet, Karéin-Mayréij, the alien “Storied Watcher”, finds herself at odds with the declining, undemocratic United States of 2040.
Things aren't going well : her new, adopted “family” has just been kidnapped by parties unknown, and the U.S. Air Force, among others, is trying to kill her.
But there's a reason why Karéin-Mayréij is called the “Destroying Angel”, and the U.S. government is about to find out about it, the hard way. Her lethal supernatural abilities are returning fast, and her friends and family – though in dire straits – are starting to inherit super-human powers of their own.
And the President of the future United States is about to learn the truth of the saying :
"Never get on the bad side, of a fallen angel."
Having been an avid consumer (and part-time supplier) of science fiction and fantasy content is nothing new to Marcus Shields, who has been partaking thereof, since he was old enough to read (modesty precludes the author from revealing exactly how long ago, that was).
Currently employed as a computer security professional, Shields is the author of a large number of so-far-unpublished works, ranging from the Shakhan series of pen and paper fantasy role-playing games, to a daily series of political e-mail blasts to all who are interested (and many more who are not).
He resides in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, where he shares a comfortably modest home with his wife, daughter and very furry, and very spoiled, "cross-breed" (a.k.a., "mutt") dog.
