"The Angel" by Carla NeggersMY THOUGHTS: I really enjoyed reading this book. The location of Ireland is one of my favorites. This book is all about an ancient Stone Angel and an Irish Folk story. Keira is off to Ireland to search out the story told to her. Is the Stone Angel real or someone's story? Keira is about to find out. But along the way she is ambushed and has to be saved. That's where Simon comes in. Keira and Simon head back home and run into trouble there. The killer is after Keira and her mother. And of course the Stone Angel. But is the Stone Angel real? Does Keira find it or the killer? You'll have to read the book to find out.
Inside an ancient ruin, Keira discovers the mythic stone angel she seeks—but also senses a malevolent presence…just before the ruins collapse around her.
Search-and-rescue veteran Simon Cahill finds Keira in the rubble just as she's about to free herself. Simon holds no stock in myths or magic, so he isn't surprised that there's no trace of her stone angel.
But there is evidence of startling violence and—whatever the source—the danger to Keira is quite real. The long-forgotten legend that captivated her has also aroused a killer…a calculating predator who will follow them back to Boston, determined to kill again.
