Anne Rice returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a tale of unceasing suspense set in time past--a metaphysical thriller about angels and assassins.
The novel opens in the present. At its center: Toby O'Dare--a contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill once again. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he lives under a series of aliases--just now: Lucky the Fox--and takes his orders from "The Right Man."
Into O'Dare's nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O'Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappear . . . In this primitive setting, O'Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.

I found Angel Time a bit slow in the beginning but was so truly rich by its ending that I'm excited to continue the series and find out what happens to Toby next.

A lot of the book is based around story telling and histories, both personal and public. Though the beginning was slow it was needed to describe the events, and the detail, and the emotions that led Toby to make the choices that he had made.

After the past is revealed he is taken back in time, to the 13th century, to repent for his sins by helping others. And that is where the book gets really exciting.
