    review by SusanAshlea Warning possible spoilers ahead Angel of Vengeance is the never before published novel that inspired the TV Series, Moonlight, featuring Alex O Laughlin side note yum As a huge fan of this series, I jumped at the chance to read and review this book I wasn t sure what to expect, as we all know that adaptations can be less than expected What I discovered was an intelligently written detective novel.From the first page, I was sucked into the narrative of Mick Angel, a review by SusanAshlea Warning possible spoilers ahead Angel of Vengeance is the never before published novel that inspired the TV Series, Moonlight, featuring Alex O Laughlin side note yum As a huge fan of this series, I jumped at the chance to read and review this book I wasn t sure what to expect, as we all know that adaptations can be less than expected What I discovered was an intelligently written detective novel.From the first page, I was sucked into the narrative of Mick Angel, and being that I was an avid watcher of Moonlight, I immediately had a good mental image of the character The book is a great deal darker than the TV series was, so don t expect a word by word retelling Mick Angel pretty much does what he has to in order to survive, and he equates his need for blood to a heroin addiction even going so far as shooting up the blood directly in to his veins as opposed to drinking straight from his victims though he does that too.One of the things I liked the most was the internal dialogue of this character Mick is a tell it like he sees it kind of individual and he never romanticizes the face that he is a vampire He makes good use of his strength and skills of persuasion as a Private Investigator to try to wrap this case of a missing teenager, but he soon finds out it isn t that simple.We also become privy to Mick s tumultuous relationship with his ex wife, Coraline, through flashbacks that are interspersed throughout the rest of the book It isn t revealed how the two stories are connected until the very end I ll be honest, even though I had an inkling of what was going to happen, I was still surprised.I don t usually read the author s note, but I was intrigued and was also surprised to find out that the author kind of worked backwards He worked on Moonlight as a co producer, and didn t published the novel it was based on until now I think fans of the series will truly enjoy this book I also think this is a great read if you are looking for something different in the paranormal genre The genre is very saturated with vampire romance and hey, there is nothing wrong with that , but this book is different There is a hint of romance but that isn t the central storyline I loved the film noir feel of this book and the frankness of the characters In short, it worked.Angel of Vengeance gets a healthy 4 out of 5 fangs The characters are excellently portrayed, the narrative flows and the dialogue is great All in all, something I would definitely re read

    A book about Mick from the CBS series Moonlight Hell yes, I had to read this one Angel of Vengeance is not really like a tv series but not only because of the different story The whole feel of the setting and characters is much darker I, with my humble genre knowledge, would say it s a noir story.We find ourself in Mick Angel s POV from the first page He is in essence the same guy from the series but he doesn t feel like it He s darker, moodier and not at all as nice and good as this guy A book about Mick from the CBS series Moonlight Hell yes, I had to read this one Angel of Vengeance is not really like a tv series but not only because of the different story The whole feel of the setting and characters is much darker I, with my humble genre knowledge, would say it s a noir story.We find ourself in Mick Angel s POV from the first page He is in essence the same guy from the series but he doesn t feel like it He s darker, moodier and not at all as nice and good as this guy For me it was rather hard to associate with Mick as a character In my eyes this is one of the main problems with novels written in first person if you can t find a connection to the main protagonist you lose too much interest in the novel as a whole That it was happened to me Yes I wanted to know how the real Mick worked but I never really felt him as a new character The Mick we get to know in Angel of Vengeance wasn t fleshed out enough for me he felt to simple I think this mostly resulted out of the second problem I had with this novel the writing itself wasn t descriptive enough Mostly it was just telling what happens and I really prefer when I actually see what happens I m not a huge fan of I did this then I did that and so on At times the writing was a bit too rocky for my taste and it didn t really made me want to read .The plot of Angel of Vengeance was intriguing it shows usof Mick and how he really is We watch him working on a case and we get some flashbacks to his past with Coraline I really enjoyed those For all those Moonlight fans out there unfortunately no Beth in this story and Angel of Vengeance definitely is a NO romance novel so don t expect to find love and a HEA in this one.Angel of Vengeance is a new and different view of Mick If you don t expect it to be like the series you will enjoy this one It s not like anything I read before If you enjoy the darker side in novels this book is what you should get.I give Angel of Vengeance 2,5 out of 5 bookies

    This book was FANGTASTIC Finally Something that is so awesome I want to sick my teeth so deeply into it that I come back with a fang missing just because I just didn t want to give it up You don t have to be a Moonlight Fan to enjoy this story No sir re bobby You don t even need to know what Moonlight is to enjoy it It explains everything perfectly While this book is based on the series it was actually written before the series and just recently published Like all books and shows they b This book was FANGTASTIC Finally Something that is so awesome I want to sick my teeth so deeply into it that I come back with a fang missing just because I just didn t want to give it up You don t have to be a Moonlight Fan to enjoy this story No sir re bobby You don t even need to know what Moonlight is to enjoy it It explains everything perfectly While this book is based on the series it was actually written before the series and just recently published Like all books and shows they both have their differences A major one is in the book Mick is a whole lot darker, wears a fedora, chain smokes, was a smack addict in the past, he has to be invited inside a house to do hypnotic things to people, he can t go out in the sunlight at all, and only takes his blood by a needle usually.I remember Mick shooting up a couple times but I also remember him drinking it from a cup Am I wrong about that There is no Josef, waaaaaa or any other side characters from the show like the Cleaner or that video game vampire dude, or that morgue guy but Coraline who is Mick s love interest in the past and transforms him into a vampire in the show is mentioned a lot in flashbacks about how Mick became a vampire and it s not the story you think Now, BETH Mick s love interest in the show is hinted at but again not like you think I really hope that these books are continued because THAT would have to be the next book.The book We journey into the world of vampire P.I Mick Angel He takes on a case involving a missing 14 year old girl Throughout the story we meet a variety of people and in a Pulp Fiction kind of way it will make you want to read the book twice just so you can catch on to little tidbits you might have missed in the beginning.I seriously loved it Like I said it s a lot darker than the series but that s what made it so awesome I also enjoyed that this was written by a man gasp You could tell he really wanted to give Mick a MAN S MAN feel and not a I want to know you feelings kinda vampire feel not that anything is bad about vampire feelings I love them too I think MEN would enjoy this book and if the series had been done the way the book had been done then I think thatmen would have been in the audience.I don t want to be a spoiler bunny but if you d like to look this is my favorite part of the book IT made me go squee be warned not for the tame at heart view spoiler A sick tight feeling in my stomach, I watched her break the man s neck Turning, Coraline looked at the wife still trying to make sense of it all on the couch and allowed her fangs to distend I listened to the wife s pitiful scream as she stood and for the first time I saw she was pregnant Filled with horror, the woman ran for the stairs, arms cradled around her bulging belly Frozen in place, stunned by the awful spectacle unfolding on the other side of the thin pane of glass, I watched Coraline smile hungrily as she transformed and gave chase.I moved then I ran to the door, flung it open, and raced up the stairs and down a long hall towards the master bedroom where I could hear sounds of a struggle It was too late by the time I got there Too goddamn late The woman was already dead, her neck snapped backward If that had been the worst of it, it would have been bad enough, but it wasn t On the floor by the four post bed, her face covered in gore, Coraline sat feeding on the unborn child she had ripped from the dead woman s belly.She looked up when she sensed me standing in the doorway, strings of blood hanging from her fangs She smiled and held the child out to me Hungry, baby hide spoiler omg I was like WOAH That s brilliant But I m an odd duck I definitely recommend this book It s a quick read but well worth it I bet I ll read it again and again

    It s good and well written, but this is a very different Mick much darker, pre adult Beth I can t see Beth falling in love with him to be honest and with a different backstory in some particulars His turning by Coraline, for instance, isn t the same and Coraline is a stone cold monster also with a different backstory.I don t know when the book was written but I can see why they made the changes they did for the show no one could ve really liked this Mick very much He has flashes of herois It s good and well written, but this is a very different Mick much darker, pre adult Beth I can t see Beth falling in love with him to be honest and with a different backstory in some particulars His turning by Coraline, for instance, isn t the same and Coraline is a stone cold monster also with a different backstory.I don t know when the book was written but I can see why they made the changes they did for the show no one could ve really liked this Mick very much He has flashes of heroism, but he s not at all romantic.Neither is being a vampire I love how the author has really put some thought into being a vampire these aren t humans with fangs, they re entirely different creatures after they re turned, numb, slowly decaying bodies hence the sleeping in a freezer , unable to see except in black, white and redthey re cool to the touch and they smell You really get a sense of them being repulsive which makes a nice change.I d recommend it for any Moonlight or vampire story fan, but be prepared to wince a bit at some of what Mick does And if you re a single malt fan, you ll also wince at the way The Macallan is referred to as McAllen or Macallen in the book Small point, but it bugged me

    I didn t like vampires ever Never Absolutely not Ok, if you want to know the truth I didn t like detectivesthan vampires I wasn t really interesting in artful designes of criminal s sick mind I ve never read detectives, cause I was pretty sure to find there art sence impossible But that night I ve got a novel Angel of Vengeance , became especial That night was marvelous It has changed me and my attitude to detectives Through I love TV show Moonlight it s the only one pleasant I didn t like vampires ever Never Absolutely not Ok, if you want to know the truth I didn t like detectivesthan vampires I wasn t really interesting in artful designes of criminal s sick mind I ve never read detectives, cause I was pretty sure to find there art sence impossible But that night I ve got a novel Angel of Vengeance , became especial That night was marvelous It has changed me and my attitude to detectives Through I love TV show Moonlight it s the only one pleasant exception between others vampires TV shows , I previously knew, book won t be a sequel about Mick and Beth The author has honestly said that Angel of Vengeance is a different story than in a show and it tells about the dark well, very very very dark past of our Mick He is not St.John, but Angel not that one with wings in a Winchesters gang and not that one, who was in love with Buffy And Coraline is not lovely vamp woman, but just a sly b tch There s no any pink bows Neither glamour and plaque female nose running novels or beautiful words about eternal love Neither half tones Only light and darkness And the main character at a crossroads between them The choice, which makes sooner or later each of us in the soul, overtakes Mick at the most inappropriate moment at the moment when his soul is fall in a raging lava of passion and all consuming love Forget everything you ve ever heard about love romantic, languid recognitions, self sacrifice, together hand in hand in a grief and in joy No Reading this book, be ready to feel the new taste of love which will probably taste bitter on your lips and in your soul, but which you will drink again and again, enjoying its exciting aroma Love poison Passion curse Woman madness Coraline is a personal hell for Mick Without hope of salvation, as it seems in the book I don t make an accent on a detective plot of the novel not only because I didn t like detectives In this case detective outline is simply a background for disclosing of the personality of Mick It s top dark layer If you will read carefully and you will look through it, you could see a whole undercover Mick s world Mick has mired in this world and wanders in the darkness Page to page Mick goes down deeper and deeper into dark of his undercover desires Even when he tries to turn to the light he can t cause he doesn t see it He s not a blind But in the book there is almost no light There is only one ray of light piercing the darkness for a moment Elizabeth Mick rescued this little girl from hand his ruthless Coraline This ray of light has entered into Mick s soul and left there its trace Bright style the first person allows the reader to taste to the full bitterness of being Mick Angel It s not he sleeps in a freezer to stop decomposition of a body, it s not he spends nights in a vain attempt to expiate his past misdeeds, it s not he has been caught into web of insidious, but incredibly beautiful Coraline It s YOU are a lonely vampire The author simple tells your thoughts and describes your life Sometimes very gothic goose pimples run on skin, it had replaced by cynical smirk, caused an interesting sense of humor of the main character There s no sparkled like diamond skin of Edward It s not a fairy tale It s the story of vampire life Persons under 18 years shouldn t read Angel of vengeance Mystical elements of the book are almost brought to nothing Since the second part of book you begin perceive Mick Angel as lost and unhappy person who doesn t have a place in the light world That s why he prefers to wander on pubs, strip clubs and stashes investigating murders and abductions Mick is closed in himself, passing several stages of understanding life, love and his own soul But he doesn t turn into a static character Mick Angel develops and changes with each new plot s turn At the beginning of the book it may seem Mick madly in love with Coraline Desmond, doesn t dare to contradict her, indulges her madnesses However at the second part of the book you read how as Mick stops his mad love, kills his past He has passed a few circles of hell and knew himself, he burns Coraline as his sins It s hard to explain why you re reading this book page after page without stop, watching the ups and downs of destiny of Mick Angel Perhaps it s especial attractive author s style, maybe it s because of main character with which you are going through all the trials of fate Anyway, it s first time through many years of reading, the book has took my attention and amazed me by its style I read some paragraphs again and again I enjoyed inexpressible atmosphere Munson has described his own special vampire s mythology It is very close to reality, unlike any other stories about blood suckers Mick sleeps in a deep freezer, not in a coffin He doesn t die of blow in a breast by a count Though silver in considerable quantities likely can kill him No women, no children, no innocents it how he tames a monster inside of himself As it was written earlier Trevor O Munson has created a new vampire world It s very close to human world, there are a lot of vices and lacks Mick takes a blood by a injection, because he was drug addiction and can t forget about it He smokes several packs of cigarettes per day cause he thinks his body is already dead It won t be worse Right He s doing it not for pleasure But probably it s remind him about the human life You couldn t find any positive female image in this book It can to scare and to repulse you if you like romantic emotional novels about eternal love In Angel of Vengeance you can find sluts, strippers, drug addiction girls and stupid blond actresses, but there s no any NORMAL woman Though little Beth can be called like this Mick saw her fleetingly She whispered I want my mommy and Mick answered to her Me too Could be this fast mutual understanding turn to something bigger in future If all goes well Trevor will start writing of the sequel Angel Of Vengeance Guardian Angel very very soon Emergence and evolution of feelings between Mick and grown up Beth will be a central theme of the next novel But we don t know yet if Mick will stay alone or find his happiness with Beth We wish good luck to Trevor in writing of Guardian Angel Such character like Mick Angel deserves immortality in the world literature

    As a fan of the CBS TV series Moonlight I was very excited to read Trevor Munson s Angel of Vengeance , the novel that inspired the series I m pleased to report that the novel was a thoroughly enjoyable read And that s coming from someone with no previous experience reading noir stories The story s atmosphere is palpable, almost a character itself You re sucked into a dark and seedy world populated by criminals, cops, strippers, prostitutes and, of course, vampires The way Munson descr As a fan of the CBS TV series Moonlight I was very excited to read Trevor Munson s Angel of Vengeance , the novel that inspired the series I m pleased to report that the novel was a thoroughly enjoyable read And that s coming from someone with no previous experience reading noir stories The story s atmosphere is palpable, almost a character itself You re sucked into a dark and seedy world populated by criminals, cops, strippers, prostitutes and, of course, vampires The way Munson describes Michael Mick Angel who would morph into Mick St John in the series you feel as if you ve known him all your life This is definitely not Moonlight Mick , but anyone who picks up Angel of Vengeance should already know that And I have news for you If you think Mick is darker in this novel than he was in the TV series, wait til you get a load of Coraline.Comparisons to Moonlight are inevitable, of course Here s how I see it Watching Moonlight and then reading Angel of Vengeance is like having a musical group you love issue a collection of early, working versions of their songs Sure, they re the same songs, but you re hearing them at the point where they were first imagined by the artist You re witnessing the birth of the music, the evolution of the music And it s fascinating to be able to compare the early versions of those songs with the version you ve come to know and love.I don t think I ve ever read a book that had me laughing out loud in some places and cringing with disgust in others And that s a good thing.If Munson decides to continue the story and I hope he does , it ll be interesting to see whether the direction taken in the TV series has an impact on how he writes the next installment and I hope it doesn t.To borrow a line from the TV series, Angel of Vengeance was like a giant thrill ride that I wish hadn t had to end
