Nyx is Queen of Hell and ruler of the Angels who were banished there – the Descended.

And when the rest of the Angels are called home, Nyx finds herself stuck on the Earth with the Son of God. To her surprise, she learns that he is no happier than she. God's son thought he was sent down to judge humanity. Instead, he becomes a sacrifice for a cause he does not believe in – their redemption.

After his mortal body dies, the Son of God makes Nyx an offer: a new paradise on Earth if she will help him destroy humanity.

With two of her fellow Angels by her side, Nyx launches a thousand-year campaign of violence, sex, betrayal and intrigue to bring down God's people and have them worship her instead. From the back streets of Jerusalem to the palaces of Rome, from the temples of Egypt to the Pope's bedchamber, Nyx and her companions work to destroy the worshippers of God.

But not all is as it seems. And the Son of God has bigger plans than any of them imagine...

Fans are saying


An enthralling page-turner

Somehow, ‘Plague of Angels’ reminds me of the film ‘Legion” or the recurring angels thread in ‘Dr Who’—but Kennedy’s book stands on its own, thanks to the author’s crisp writing, knack for believable dialogue, and an emotional gravitas that burbles just underneath the book’s entire plot.

The result is a novel that reels you in and doesn’t let go. What’s more, the author provides an intriguing backstory that ties the banished angels’ activities to mankind’s history.

Brilliance Brilliance

This is a truly brilliant and compelling work by Kennedy. It leaves readers inspired to dream and believe in the plights of the characters while posing some very important philosophical question on what truly is good and evil.

A book that neglects to challenge its reader is not a book worth reading, this being said Kennedy's "Plague of Angels" is one of the most worthwhile books I have read yet.
