Heaven's Bones by Samantha Henderson is a strange tale of angels, guilt, revenge, suffering, and redemption. It's a story told by Seriah, a recording angel, who has lived in the London Underground for years listening to the stories and people and the world changing around her. The story stretches over time and space to tell of a brother and sister who both had power but chose to use it in different ways. From official release/information:
Product Description: Love and death walk hand in hand... Dr. Sebastian Robarts is a man paralyzed by the fate of his adored wife, dead in childbirth, their only child with her. He searches for a way to build angels from women, a pastime known to Scotland Yard as murder. Robarts meets the Vistani seer named Trueblood, who becomes his assistant and leads him to the Antebellum-era domain of Riverbend, controlled by the sadistic Dr. Weldon, to create angels, unfettered by conventional morality, or even rules. When the murderer returns to earth, it is the task of a Vistani policeman and a woman with a strange connection to Robarts to stop him. If he can be stopped.
