The sequel to The Vintner’s Luck in which the angel Xas settles in Hollywood 1929 and becomes involved in the seductive movie industry.

© “In the sequel to The Vintner’s Luck, it’s 1929 and angel Xas is living in Hollywood.

“Movie director Conrad Cole is working late on elaborate plans for his aeroplanes and his films, when Xas, a mysterious stranger appears at his door.

“The angel ends up involved in the glamorous and treacherous world of movie-making and entangled with both Cole and a young woman who owes her life to the eccentric director. Both of them are drawn to Xas without knowing his secret – that under his shirt he hides the remnants of great snowy wings that set him apart from humankind, and that he is destined to wander the earth forever, always hearing the beating of feathers behind him, threatening him that his dark brother has found him again.

© “I was bewildered by this book after the beautiful setting of The Vintner’s Luck, which was soothing, solid and earthy. Once I settled into the new airy rhythm of The Angel’s Cut I felt privileged to be gaining more insight into Xas’s adventures. I am absolutely delighted to know there is going to be a 3rd installment!” – Suzy

© “After reading The Vintner’s Luck so many times and continually wondering where Xas would go from there, I was super excited to hear about the publication of The Angel’s Cut. A huge deviation in location from the first book, but it needed to be, I think, and of course Elizabeth Knox has done the timing, the setting and the characters justice. I loved re-connecting with Xas and adored the book. Though of course, no sequel could ever rival The Vintner’s Luck!” – Rachel
