by A L McAuley
Legend tells of fallen angels banished from Heaven during the war between the army of God and his Archangel Lucifer. During the war there were angels who refused to take sides. For their lack of action they were banished from Heaven. Some fell into the sea, some fell into Hell itself - and the rest fell on Ireland.
Deep in a lake in Bavaria, Germany, two amateur divers uncover a sparkling gem with a long history and a hidden potential for good and evil, leading to an utterly terrifying chain of events.
In a world that seems to have lost its way and its soul, where the age of death is known and life has lost its lustre, the battle for the gem and all that it brings stretches from the boardrooms of America to the presidential chambers of Germany and even to the sleepy shores of Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland.
Amulet is the powerful and breath-taking sequel to A. L. McAuley’s stunning debut novel, 88, an explosive story of miracles and mayhem, kidnapping and killings, which earned an impressive string of 5-Star reviews.

"If you read this author's debut novel 88, you really must pick up where that story left off. Amulet takes it to another level. Great characterisation, good research, imaginative plotting...another five-star read! This is one book you can judge by its cover!"
"I am simply in awe. Albert’s ability to construct a story with multiple facets (ranging from religious doctrine and folklore to current political and economic events) and weave them into a story that never loses you is mind blowing. Superbly written, Amulet is darker than 88, and can make for uncomfortable reading at times but there is nothing pleasant about war and this is a war of Good and Evil. I have thoroughly enjoyed the way the story has spun out with Eva becoming stronger and that we are still left wondering about Valentine. I cannot wait for the third installment!...Seriously, when is it?"
