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!

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.

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.
