best-selling author Eric Flint takes on urban fantasy: A bizarre kidnapping case leads FBI Special Agent Jasper Wilde into the mysterious world of a strange religious cult, even stranger criminals and an ancient evil. Set in the Windy City of Chicago and in rusty, industrial East Chicago
A bizarre kidnapping case leads FBI Special Agent Jasper Wilde into the mysterious world of a strange religious cult and even stranger criminals. At the scene of the kidnapping itself, a frightening apparition is seen. Then, a hideously-mutilated corpse is found nearby. Something wicked has come to the nornal-seeming Chicago suburbs.
It doesn t take longbefore the FBI agents realize that something truly extraordinary is unfolding in northwest Indiana and that, whatever it is, the area s huge steel industry is somehow at the center.
Jasper is joined by Supervisory Special Agent Temple Black.Blackhas recently been put in charge of a new unit, the Scientific Anomalies Group, created to analyze and handle peculiar cases which might be on the periphery of national security.
Another cult is discovered, although this one seems to be opposed to the criminal activities taking place. Further investigation, however, just produces more in the way of mystery. The agents consult with scientists and theologians, but no one has any idea what might be producing the situation.
Until, finally, the cults erupt in open warfare. As the FBI agents race to intervene and finally put a stop to the horrors, they come to understand and accept that something very ancient and very evil has surfaced in the world or, perhaps, something that is very, very alien.

The highest compliment I can pay this book is that once I started reading, it was nearly impossible to put down. It had just the right amount intrigue to carry me from one chapter to another. Although it was more of FBI thriller than I'm used to, it never gets bogged down in the functions of the...

I couldn't get into this story. I felt like I was reading a rough draft. It had the potential to be better, but the execution was off. Someone should have done a better job of editing .

Not one of Flint's better books. The plot dragged and the characters were only mildly interesting.

Tightly plotted, this book rocks steadily through an investigation that comes to a burning-hot conclusion! Federal agents, scientists, mad cult leaders, creatures beyond the veil: Iron Angels presents a story that reminded me of the very best of Delta Green.
The characters are intense, and their i...

X-Files gets mashed up with Lovecraft. It's not over the top, it's remotely plausible that this bizarre stuff is still secret, i.e. only a few victims, not large portions of cities going missing. One of the villains saves someone, so they aren't the typical super-evil types, indeed I would say th...

I made it to Chapter 12, about page 90. Which is compelling as this isn't my genre. But I would recommend it to those who enjoy monsters in Chicago.

Finally a break from the stock Urban Fantasy. This book is great, plot driven and avoids the modern urban fantasy cliches.
Kimble adds the kind of details to the characters that simple research just can't provide. Deepening the flavor and adding texture to the world while balancing out the someti...
