Immortal City by Scott Speer

"Accurately hitting on celebrity-obsessed culture and the dichotomy between the glitterati and everyday people, Speer blends romance and mystery to deliver a fresh take on the angel novel, ... Strong writing, well-rounded characters, and an enticing hook in the form of the mercenary/ celebutante angels breathe life into the world Speer has created."
