Scar Night by Alan Campbell
Suspended by chains over a seemingly bottomless abyss, the ancient city of Deepgate is home to a young angel, an assassin, and a psychotic murderer hungry for revenge—or redemption. But soon a shocking betrayal will unite all three in a desperate quest....
The last of his line, Dill is descended from legendary Battle-archons who once defended the city. Forbidden to fly and untrained even to wield the great sword inherited from his forebears, he has become a figurehead for a dying tradition. Now he lives a sheltered existence in one of Deepgate’s crumbling temple spires under the watchful eye of the Presbyter who rules the city.
Spine assassin Rachel Hael has better things to do than oversee the Presbyter’s angel. Each dark moon she must fight for her life among the city chains, hunting an immortal predator with a taste for blood.
But when a traitor brings enemies to Deepgate’s doorstep, Dill and Rachel are forced into an uneasy alliance with the city’s oldest and most dangerous foe. They must journey down into the uncharted chasm to save their sprawling metropolis—and themselves—from annihilation. Once they descend however, they learn that what lies below is far more sinister than what they’ve been taught to expect.
This book was ok. I was a little bit bored throughout the whole book but it was ok. I liked the talk about angels but I dont really like the way they portray gods. Humans in this book are locked out of heaven by a god and the other god (sorry for spoiler) that they think is trying to help them gain access into heaven actually wants to take control of the world......so......yeah I dont really care for that part but the story line is ok. The second book might contain romance (not saying between who) but they way this book ended kind of makes me not really excited about the next book (which I dont have). I dont know there wasn't really a cliff hanger at the end of the book.
