I liked the books, but I felt they weren't as good because they were based off of a show, something you could already see. You didn't have the chance to imagine the characters and settings yourself. Unless you've not seen the show.
This shows you the fist ep. of Angel...basically sets the tone for the rest of the books that follow, so if you're not a fan of the show you can get into it through reading. It does show a more intricate look into the episode for fans! I'd recommend this book to anyone who's a fan or who was planning on reading the series books that follow. So, over-all good ratings!
Excellant book. Just what I needed. A "buffy universe break" Joalice
Step into the world of Angel, the vampire with a soul, and his battle for redemption. An excellent book that fits with the series perfectly. An entertaining read!
For Angel, life as a vampire was a constant thrill. Power, danger, cool clothes (never getting old, also a plus). But in the end, it was all about the kill -- until he killed the wrong girl.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was Angel's first true love, but the relationship was doomed from the start -- a moment of true happiness would cause Angel to lose his soul forever. So he left -- Sunnydale, Buffy, and everything else meaningful to him.
City of Angels. Run by powerful forces, agents of pure evil. It's a city hard on its human population. If Angel wants to save himself, he's going to have to save them...somehow. With the help of two unlikely allies -- a half-demon and a ex -- May Queen -- he's going to set up shop....
And keep watch over his city.
