Posted on July 29, 2008 by

Iron Angel is the sequel to Scar Night, reviewed HERE.

The first book took place within the iconic city of Deepgate, a massive city strung on chains over a pit that descended into hell itself. That book ended with the death of a god but, whoever evil and dangerous that god was its death had to have implications, and these begin to come home to roost in the sequel.
