How do you know if you’re one of the damned?
As a child, Don wanted to become a priest. Now a grown man mostly at ease with being gay, he’s left the Catholic Church and has chosen instead to help people through his work as a parole officer.
His strong faith is shaken when his latest assignment turns out to be Michael, a young man Don hasn’t seen since he took Michael to church as a child — and saw his parish priest cast Michael out of the church as a demon.
Meeting him as an adult re-ignites the obsession Don had with the boy he couldn’t save. But can Michael be saved at all? Or is the strangely compelling demon with a taste for risky sex as damned as he believes himself to be?
I don’t know how to describe my feelings about Angel. It is skillfully crafted, I expect nothing less from JL Merrow, and the story intrigues me.
I found it hard to relate to either of the characters, but the emotions, the guilt, the bitterness, and the need, oozed from Don and Michael.
Is it odd to say I’m not sure I liked Angel, but it caught my imagination? I could see these two men as if their encounters were being played out in front of me.
That’s why it gets 4 kisses. Because it’s a damned (ha!) good story.
