Matt and Emily are back again in the sequel to Amy Lignor’s The Angel Chronicles Until Next Time. In Gilded Wings the angelic pair are sent off on their second mission, innocent of how “truly dark human nature can become…”

Myles and Gregori stood when Anya whispered in their ears, reminding them to stand when a lady enters the room.
Hope looked over at Drew. “Mr. Parrish, the breakfast table is always lit up by your presence.”
Drew stood and took her hand. “Miss Hope, you’re a breath of fresh air.”
“More like hot air.” The biting words came from Max’s mouth.
Hope looked over at him. “Good morning to you too, Max. It’s always a pleasure to see you. I was worried about the carriage accident you and your father had last week. I am so happy you’re both well.”
Max looked a bit confused as he glanced at Anya. “Yes, well…I have to run,” he said, jumping up from his chair.
Mr. Carrow glared at his insolent son. “You will sit down and finish breakfast with this family. We have guests.”
“I’m sorry, Father, but I have to go into the office today. I’m meeting with Mr. Morgan.”
“We have a deal going through which I sent you the papers on last week. I’m working on the arrangements.”
“With Carnegie? I have told you both that Andrew Carnegie will never sell the steel company. It’s his life.”
