The thrilling conclusion to the Mesopotamian trilogy about the origin of angels and the real location of the lost Garden of Eden

In 2011, D.J. McIntosh took the book world by storm with her bestselling debut novel, The Witch of Babylon.

In this highly anticipated conclusion, Madison is hired by a famous magician to find a rare sixteenth century book on angel magic and the former assistant who stole it thirty-five years ago. Madison's quest leads him from the great mosques and churches of Istanbul to the ruins of Pergamon and the temples of the ancient Near East, where he discovers the true location of the Garden of Eden, the nature of angels, and the dark story of his birth.

D.J. (Dorothy) McIntosh left her professional job to carve out a career as an author. It took almost ten years to research and write her debut novel, The Witch of Babylon, shortlisted for the Crime Writer Association’s Debut Dagger Award and winner of an Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished crime novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Five-Star Winner! Another five-star winner in the final book of this trilogy by this wonderful writer. I am a fast reader but I made myself take my time because I didn't want this book to end. The descriptions are so authentic that you feel as if you really are walking in John Madison's shoes and there is a perfect balance of action to description, so the the story is enthralling from start to finish. The novel is filled with fascinating facts which add layers to the rich fabric of the weave, never distracting but adding texture and depth to the imagery and narrative. One of the things I so admire about this author is the absence of author voice intruding; the book is seamlessly John Madison's own. I am keeping fingers crossed that this trilogy becomes a quartet and I know I am not alone in hoping for this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting Conclusion of a Brilliant Trilogy In The Angel of Eden, D.J. McIntosh gives us the exciting conclusion to the Mesopotamian trilogy that began with the highly acclaimed Witch of Babylon where we were first introduced to enigmatic antiquities dealer, John Madison. In this third adventure Madison is hired by a famous but devious magician to find the brilliant protégé who disappeared decades earlier taking with him a rare manuscript about the magic of angels. Pursued by those determined to stop him Madison’s quest takes him and his team back to the dangers of Iran where he must find one of that country’s most deeply held secrets—the Garden of Eden. There he also hopes to discover the dark truth about his own history. McIntosh has always had the ability to walk us through weird and exotic locations with such clarity we feel we too have experienced the sights, smells, and dangers of these places. In this third outing, McIntosh has fine-tuned the skillful manner in which she blends historical fact with fiction until it’s impossible to tell where one leaves off and the other takes over. We come away feeling that we’ve accompanied Madison through the terror that eventually leads to Eden and the answers he’s long sought about his own origins. This much anticipated final piece of the trilogy leaves me hoping this trilogy will turn into a series.
