“He noticed in the crowd a board in English ‘Free the Angel’
“Free the angel?” He was only confused for a second when a news flash with a Greek commentator speaking over the clips showed a white winged boy contained within a temporary isolation chamber “Azriel? AZRIEL…” Edward shouted at the window with the TV on the other side, in a panic he grabbed his mobile and tried to dial The Prince’s phone, there was no tone with his hands shaking he looked at the screen ‘out of network area’ flashed on the screen.”

Angel Among Men, the book that was never suppose to exist. Book two with the addition of Alexander and The Prince’s story line became such a length that it had to be divided up. The title for this book has always been a struggle since it was never suppose to exist it has always been loosely referred to as Book three or ‘the one where Azriel is born’.
