Book Description

“What’s the first thing you think of when I say ‘angel’?” asked Mallory. Alice shrugged. “I don’t know... guns?”

Alice isn’t having the best of days - late for work, missed her bus, and now she’s getting rained on - but it’s about to get worse. The war between the angels and the Fallen is escalating and innocent civilians are getting caught in the cross-fire. If the balance is to be restored, the angels must act - or risk the Fallen taking control. Forever. That’s where Alice comes in. Hunted by the Fallen and guided by Mallory - a disgraced angel with a drinking problem he doesn’t want to - Alice will learn the truth about her own history... and why the angels want to send her to hell.

What do the Fallen want from her? How does Mallory know so much about her past? What is it the angels are hiding - and can she trust either side?

Blood and Feathers is Lou Morgan's electric debut.

More About the Author

Lou Morgan grew up in Wales, became a Londoner and now lives in the historic city of Bath - where she spends her days herding cats, writing and drinking tea. Not necessarily in that order of importance.

Her first short story was published by the British Fantasy Society in 2008, and since then her work has appeared in anthologies from Jurassic Press, Solaris Books and PS Publishing.

Her first novel, "Blood and Feathers" - an urban fantasy described as 'Alice in Wonderland goes to Hell' - was published in the UK & the US by Solaris Books in August 2012, with a sequel, "Blood and Feathers: Rebellion" released in the summer of 2013.

She has a weakness for pizza, cathedrals and Christopher Nolan films (although possibly not all at the same time), and gets very excited about medieval history & literature.

She can mostly be found on Twitter or at her blog:

She is represented by Juliet Mushens at The Agency Group.

I really struggled with this book in the beginning and picked it up and put it down on several occasions as the characters seemed wooden and unlikable but im glad i stuck with it the characters development and the story moved along quite fast and i found myself growing to love and rooting for the characters. im looking forward to reading the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh take on an old war 4 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've long been fascinated by modern takes on any mythology, and Blood and Feathers is better than most. Way better. It starts off at a knockout pace and keeps going until the last page. Action and exposition are masterfully balanced and given to a you in a fresh modern voice. Do yourself a favour - read it.

The worlds of Blood and Feathers are magical, frightening but also very real. The characters are brilliantly drawn and the dialogue makes them both believable and so human. Loved it.

2.0 out of 5 stars We aren't in Wonderland Alice 21 Nov. 2012
By kitty kat - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Alice, who is not a very likable character, isn't who she thinks she is. Lucifer is chillin' in Hell and the Angels are gearing up for war. Angels are soldiers and they are more like human beings than they can ever imagine. They are bratty little boys, for the most part, but then trying to keep the Hellish minions where they belong can probably do that to a person. They are egotistical and cold, for the most part. They lie to each other, kill each other and in general, they aren't very nice at all. Some of the bad guys and some of the good guys were once Brothers, hence the Fallen. Alice, who thinks she's a normal person, finds, to her surprise, that her parents were not who she thought they were and that she is actually a weapon...a weapon wanted by both sides. In a flash her life is turned upside-down and the angels who are trying to keep her safe and use her at the same time, is what the book is all about. The book drags along, especially when Alice is in Hell. Seriously, she goes through one level then another and another...arggg! This is one more book where the main character asks questions over and over again but gets no answers. Alice is alway being told that the time isn't right, they will tell her later, whatever. I barely finished it. won't be buying the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely Good 20 Aug. 2012
By Nyx - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
If I had to use one word to describe this book it would Strange, but it was a good strange. The start was pretty rocky and I know a couple of people who gave up on it because of it, I only kept reading cause it was just so strange I had to find out what was going on, and that's basically what kept me going through the first half of the book.

The MC, Alice, was soo wishy washy...It's like she was in shock or something throughout most of the book, she just goes along with everything and barely questions what is going on. I get the Angels were being incredibly evasive with everything AND underhanded, sneaky little bastards really, but mygod, everyone kept saying how important Alice was, but she just takes it anyway! She doesn't use it for her advantage. She only gets somewhat of a backbone by the last 1/3rd of the book, and her being the 'secret weapon' it makes for a very disappointing one.

Alice's lack of toughness for the majority of the book aside, the single most frustrating and annoying thing were the Angels. They were sneaky, evasive, underhanded, manipulative and just plain a-holes. They were so bad I was rooting for the Fallen, which is saying something seeing as how they torture people for fun. I was so happy when they got what they deserved by the end :D

The turning point for me in the story was when Alice goes down to Hell, now that's when the good stuff starts (which is like halfway through the book). The descriptions of the levels of hell, the punishments, the cold gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'when hell freezes over'. This is when Morgan's unique writing style really shines, and the epic battle that takes place is pretty damn awesome. Everything more or less gets explained at the end, and it was incredibly satisfying when Micheal dishes out the punishment, it totally made up for my wanting to beat up some of them throughout the book *cough*Gywn*cough*Gabriel*cough*. Divine retribution at it's best!

So, for those of you who gave up during the first half, try to soldier on, because the second half totally makes up for it.
5.0 out of 5 stars An epic read 6 Mar. 2015
By Anna (Enchanted by YA) - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
So much heart-pounding action and so much awesomeness!

This book could have easily become another drab angel story that drew me in by its beautiful cover, where the heroes valiantly save the day (at the last minute) and you never really fear for any of the characters. But it wasn’t. Constantly, there was the threat of characters dying and constantly you were reminded that perhaps the angels wouldn’t win…

Even then, with the line between angels and the Fallen, heaven and hell blurred – loyalties are hard to place. Something Alice who has been dumped right in the centre of it has to determine, along with a thousand other things pushed away inside her head. The half-breed thing and consequent powers might just be the first thing on her growing list. She is an amazing character to follow because she’s not only funny but tough like its no-one’s business. Even faced with hell – you heard me – hell and Lucifer she kept going, making her own decisions. That’s real strength.

Lou Morgan wrote her character so beautifully, but it was her world building that stole the show. Phe-no-me-nal! (And that was me trying to emphasise the word, not because I can’t spell…) She has done her research and worked it into her own vision, where there are hierarchies of angels; a lot of whom don’t exactly fit the textbook definition. As well as layers of hell that seriously creep me out! The collision of these two was breath-taking. In particular, these scenes had an interesting cinematic feel to it and I can just imagine a film adaptation working extraordinarily well (someone needs to get on that. Now.)

One thing this book was missing is the romance aspect. For me, Mallory was interesting but not in that way… the connection he had with Alice’s mother made it impossible to see him as a potential love interest. However it turns out, this book didn’t need any kind of romance to keep me interested!

Blood and Feathers is an epic read where heaven and hell collide and not everything has a clear answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Take on Angels 14 July 2013
By Lois J. Breedlove - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author works within the basic conflict between heaven and hell to offer up some fascinating characters who involve you in the story. Other reviewers have complained about the pacing -- but I found it absorbing. I also found myself thinking about the book while I was doing other things -- a certain indicator of the quality of the book. This is the author's first book. I can't wait to see where she takes this story.
