Morgan impressed with her darkly fantastic debut.' TOR.COM 'Eerie, compelling and very funny.' MICHAEL MARSHALL SMITH ON BLOOD AND FEATHERS
About the Author
Lou Morgan's first short story was published in 2008, and her work has since appeared in venues including Hub Magazine, Morpheus Tales, and Solaris Magic anthology. She lives in Brighton, placing her firmly on the front line in the event of a mutant-squid attack. This is not something she likes to think about.

I left Blood and Feathers thinking “this is so good!” I started the next book in the series literally ten minutes after finishing it, which is something I have never done before. The world and writing is addictive, which is why I couldn’t wait to start this.
All my favourite characters return. Alice, Mallory and Vin. Then there’s new favourite, Adriel, angel of Death, who, form his introduction, I envisioned as Undertaker from Black Butler and he lived up to coolness expectation. Not sorry. Vin and Mallory are once again sarcastically funny at times with a lot of darkness at others. Marllory, I felt so sad for him when we were told what’s in his books. Zadkiel is awesome and we start falling in love with him and then that happens to him and Lou Morgan is evil. Can we just talk about how great Mallory, Vin, Alice and Adriel are? The relationships are so real it’s great spending time with the characters. My love of Lou’s portrayal of angels and demons is on par with that of my love for Supernatural’s, so that’s pretty big (extra points to Lou vs Supernatural for the lack of awful women treating!).
Plot is great. There’s more of the angels vs the fallen, with things getting worse and worse, and an angelic betrayal and things moving on quickly. at the end, I’m left wanting a lot more.
Overall: Strength 5 tea to a great second book. I have made the decision to read ANYTHING Lou writes.
The war in Heaven has ramped up a notch in the sequel to Lou Morgan's debut, "Blood and Feathers." The Fallen have escaped from Hell and are running riot on the streets of the UK, manipulative archangel Michael has Satan's body in chains, but his mind is still loose amongst his followers, and Alice has a new job. As a receptionist. In a funeral parlour. Working for the Angel of Death. Like you do.
Well, like Alice does, anyway. Because Alice is more than human, and in her down-time she hunts and burns the Fallen in the warehouses and back-alleys of a deeply troubled London. But the balance between the angels and the legions of Hell is tipping, irrevocably, in favour of the Fallen, and no one, not even her closest allies, can really be trusted. Not even Michael. Especially not Michael.
Our favourite bickering angelic twosome, Mallory and Vin, are back, and their sarcastic affection for each other provides much of the humour at the core of the novel. The book might be about theology, faith, free will and corruption, but it's also stonkingly funny and crammed with action and a pace that rarely falters. At the same time, it's also a thought-provoking read, especially when it comes to Alice, forced at one point to choose between saving Mallory, or saving an unknown human who, at the crunch point, turns out to be a good friend of hers. Being half-angel, Alice suddenly finds she doesn't have quite the free will she always thought she had, and it's an unsettling revelation. Especially when you consider the psychotic bastards who are giving out the orders. On both sides of the war.
This is the middle book in the trilogy, and it manages to deftly avoid mid-trilogy slump with some fiery apocalyptic action, while leaving itself wide open for a sequel which implies that everything will be cranked up yet another gear (Not sure how that's even possible...) Whatever the outcome, heavenly or hellish, it's going to be quite a ride.
