Book 4 (final volume) of The Angel Brings Fire series
As her two adopted "families" of friends and acquaintances fight an unequal, last-ditch battle for survival, deep underground in a distant, secret prison-facility, Karéin-Mayréij streaks across America's skies, recruiting a new group of super-human followers along the way.
She's desperate to rescue her loved ones, but distractions (like street gangsters, rogue nuclear weapons, double-crossing Presidents and the U.S. Air Force) have a bad habit of getting in the way.
Time's running out on all fronts – especially for the United States of 2040, which risks annihilation at the hands of an angry, guilt-ridden “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Currently employed as a computer security professional, Shields is the author of a large number of so-far-unpublished works, ranging from the Shakhan series of pen and paper fantasy role-playing games, to a daily series of political e-mail blasts to all who are interested (and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.
