There comes a time when you think LJ Shen couldn’t create the anti-hero anymore messed up than the last. Fortunately for Shen, she goes to those places where the heart hurts and the revenge justifies the means. Shen molds the best of love and hate in Vaughn and Lenora…the juxtaposition and motif swirling around their dance is perfection! Then she adds the right amount of justifying a means to an end with Vicious and Emilia, bringing Angry God full circle. Every time I read a work from Shen it takes me weeks to process all the richness of the evils she rights, but she remains the queen of the anti-hero. In Vaughn Spencer and Lenora Astalis, she created a masterpiece of understanding why Angry God acknowledges the need for vigilantes to uphold the moral and ethical rights. Sometimes the law doesn’t serve justice.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.
His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.
But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.
A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.
They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.
