Product Description

*Kindle Book Awards 2015 Finalist!* - A romantic, humorous, dark & mysterious NA adventure!
Playing pirate with her Captain lover in 1720, Anne Bonny never dreamed she'd end up a Sentinel, a soldier for mankind’s mysterious guardians, the Angeli. Now Anne will live a thousand years, but in return, she must hunt and neutralize Perfidia, corrupted Angeli who drain human energy to survive.
Monsters are only half Anne’s troubles; her stormy love life would make Blackbeard pack up ship and move to Kansas. After losing his corporeal body in battle, Anne’s former lover, Con Carey, visits her by possessing the bodies of humans, often with embarrassing results. In the meantime, Anne’s complicated romance with the aloof Arch Angeli Michael has intensified; even as they square off against a new breed of Perfidia, possessing untold power.
Can this unusual love triangle work together to protect the world from the cosmic horrors sworn to destroy it?

Absolutely superb! Not only does Vansant describe the action extremely well, she focuses extremely dry wit in unique ways through her characters. The characters themselves are very well developed, and so is the plot!
Thankyou for a most enjoyable read! Can't wait for the next book in the series!

HASH(0xa7973e7c) out of 5 stars Great story, Great Characters, Wonderful Mythology Feb. 20 2015
By SCM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A very enjoyable read - it really delivers and the pacing is great. It really is not like anything I have read in the past and covers a a good set of genres (mystery romance, fantasy, some very good humor). The story takes place at multiple locations across a range of time periods. All the characters are great, but Anne is amazing - very well written. Once you start reading, it is difficult to put down (again, the pacing is great). Well worth the time - it is a great read. I really can't wait for the next book! Great job Amy Vansant.

HASH(0xa6e2703c) out of 5 stars It has been a while since I have read a book this good. Feb. 25 2015
By Alicia J. Love (Author & Book Marketer) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It has been a while since I have read a book this good.

This book was incredibly well-written. I really enjoyed the way the story was told and the character development. I absolutely adore the way the author described everything. As an author myself I struggle with descriptions but Amy Vansant nailed every single one.

This book is clearly a paranormal story, with a lot of similarities to Vampire novels, except with Angels instead. I really liked the unique take on the Angeli and the Sentinels, and the idea of a corrupted Angel who loses his mind to chaos.

I love the way the story was told, how it started in present time and then flashed back and gave a detailed but brief backstory on our heroine. Even though the back story was in reality quite short, I felt as if I knew exactly who our character was. It was a perfect balance.

And I think that this book had a lot of that. Balance. The plot was very well balanced, the characters were very balanced. Honestly, this was, in the simplest of words, how a book should be written.

As an author and a reviewer I am programmed to notice the flaws when I read, and this book did not provide ANY.

This story was unique, invigorating, and well-written. It held my attention from start to finish.

HASH(0xa6e2700c) out of 5 stars Romance and Derring-Do in a New Garb July 23 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Maryland author/humorist Amy Vansant is as fascinating a character as the infinitely enjoyable characters she creates. She has her finger on the pulse of those who love (and need) humor - having served as a freelance humor writer for Modern Maturity, Caribbean Travel and Life, Yankee, Chesapeake Bay Magazine, McSweeney's Internet Tendencies, Barnes and Noble Review, as well as the East Coast editor for SURFER Magazine. Her book publications include MOMS ARE NUTS ANTHOLOGY, THE SURFER'S GUIDE TO FLORIDA, KID-FREE LIVING: HUMOR ESSAYS AND FICTION FROM KIDFREELIVING.COM. In a recent interview concerning this book ANGELI - THE PIRATE, THE ANGEL & THE IRISHMAN She stated, `Angeli - The Pirate, the Angel & the Irishman' is a super-fun urban fantasy/adventure with a good dose of humor and romance. It's a little Sookie Stackhouse, a little Buffy the Vampire Slayer... but no vampires. Bottom line is it is a fun read. And hopefully infectious, though not in a skin rash sort of way.'

And reading the first few pages will convince the reader that not only is Amy Vansant funny, she also has created a very clever romance that brings in quasi sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy into the fray and knows exactly how to introduce those novel elements in a manner that gives the reader the feeling of `oh, yeah' - accepting the strange body inhabitations and time alterations as simply part of an unnervingly funny and steamy story. As the author describes it,' What is Angeli? A super-fun (<-- seriously, that is the best way to describe it) adventure featuring a nearly immortal female pirate, a goofy and sexy Irishman, and a powerful, mystical guardian angel (who also happens to be hot, imagine that...) who all must work together to fight a new threat to mankind. Chock full of wit and action, Angeli is the summer page-turner you NEED on the beach this year (or wherever you people from Kansas hang out in the summer, I'm sure it is lovely as well.)'
And to bear witness to the book's odd transformative tale the following are a few excerpts: `Anne's new table guest sat grinning, thin and pale as an untoasted wafer, but with the fiery eyes of a rebellious imp eager to be unleashed. She'd known the minute she heard the accent that the boy's body had been appropriated by a friend of hers, Con Carey, who had lost his own corporeal body some years ago. Like a horror movie ghost, Con had a habit of borrowing other people's bodies in order to communicate with her. Unlike a ghost, the only thing horrifying about Con was his otherworldly ability to consume whiskey. "Hello, Con," Anne said. "Did you ask that poor boy if you could borrow his body?" "Hello, Annie, my love," Con replied. "Absolutely not. They almost always say no." `Anytime Con noticed Michael acting suspiciously, bad things followed. Michael was an Angelus, a race of extraordinary creatures whose sole duty was to watch over the welfare of humans. Anne was a Sentinel. She worked for the Angeli as a sort of bounty hunter, helping to track and kill Perfidia, Angeli who preyed on humans instead of protecting them. Anytime Michael called her, she knew a battle lay ahead, and while she had once relished these challenges, since a Perfidian had nearly killed her fellow Sentinel, Con, she'd felt death had become her constant companion.' Anne `was slightly over 300 years old. A long life was one of the perks of being a Sentinel, assuming you could stay alive with Perfidia constantly trying to kill you.' And a bit further into the story (read Jamaica 1720) `Captain John "Calico Jack" Rackham, a real pirate who called Nassau his homeport. Rackham had a kinder face, quicker wit and easier humor than James. More importantly, he promised to whisk Anne away from her life in Nassau. When the opportunity arose, Rackham, Anne, their stolen sloop The Revenge, and a makeshift crew of rascals were miles away before dawn the following day. Anne Cormac Bonny had become a pirate. "When the Angeli fall ill they become Perfidia, traitors to the Angeli. We cannot kill them, but we cannot allow them to kill humans, so the Archs chose skilled humans to become Sentinels. The Archs lent some of their energy to the Sentinels, which empowered them to reap the Perfidia."

Though the synopsis gels the tale, reading Vansant's words are a better intro - read these words and you know you are in for a fantasy, sexy, hilarious ride. This is a book to lighten the spirit wile nudging the sensual innuendoes. Wild and rollicking, this is a terrifically fun book. Hope for more....Grady Harp, July 14

HASH(0xa6bec168) out of 5 stars A fast, fun read full of unique monsters and complicated romance. July 6 2014
By Nina Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a fun and fast book, with enough action, comedy, and tense romance to keep me turning the pages well past my bed time (and well into dawn). Though it played heavy on sexual tension, the actual sex was brief and more often teased at then in specific detail.

The entangled romance between Anne, Michael, and Con was interesting but toned enough to let the main focus, the Perfidia and their like, really shine. It would have been disappointing if the romance had overrun such a surreal monster and the surrounding mystical characters. I loved the unraveling of what originally was described as a simple horrifying monster (the Perfidia) to more a more complicated, almost Lovecraftian inspired monster and its tangled web of allies.

Interestingly, what started out as a light read by the end had darker edges that drew me in more. Vansant's take on roles of angels and their hierarchy was refreshing and not so religious that I did not understand the references (being non christian can be a pain when trying to understand even basic context in a book). She did a marvelous job speaking from each characters point of view, enriching the story and sub plots without causing confusion as we jumped from one characters mind to another. Also, the main character, Anne, fits "the strong female character" role well, despite her occasional complaint about needing to be saved, she does plenty of saving, plotting, and out right kicking ass that her male counterparts don't even compare. Tossed in nods to various historical persons made me laugh visualizing the situations described, such as Ben Franklin passed out, covered in sleeping dogs. I'm hoping this turns into a series that will take us not only into "what happens next" but deeper into each characters psyche as well. If those edges get darker and more intense you'll hear no complaints from me.

HASH(0xa6ed6180) out of 5 stars Hard to put down July 12 2014
By PL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amy Vansant's "Angeli - The Pirate, the Angel & the Irishman" is a novel that delivers everything you'd want in a contemporary fantasy/mystery story and more. It's really unlike any novel I've read, with elements of contemporary-urban fantasy, mystery, and romance. It's set in a variety of time periods and locations, from modern New Jersey to 18th century Jamaica. The cast of characters is incredibly eclectic and original. My favorite character is Con Carey because of his spunky attitude and his strange existence (he has to inhabit someone else's body to communicate with others). The plot of this book is relatively fast-paced, and the mystery element makes you want to not stop reading. Because of the many points of view and time periods, the plot is very engaging. Although I wondered how Vansant would handle all the characters, she did an excellent job making the story flow well and not get confusing. One of my favorite aspects of the book is the humor. There's a scene toward the beginning of the book involving my favorite character and Irish whiskey that made me chuckle out-loud. If you're looking for an eclectic novel with elements from multiple genres, "Angeli - The Pirate, the Angel & the Irishman" is a must-read. Can't wait to read the next installment!
