Publisher's Summary

After a devastating galactic war, disgraced veteran Ralston Muck ekes out a living as a bouncer at Last Stop Station’s premier nightclub, A Curtain of Stars. 

Night after night he listens to the club’s star performer, Siren, sing her memories and ease some of his aching loss. But when Siren goes missing, Muck finds himself drawn into a world of dirty cops, drug lords, and conspiracies that trace back to the war itself.

The only person he can trust isn’t even human. Angel, Siren’s personal AI, was ripped from the singer’s mind the night Siren disappeared. With no idea what has happened to her human host, and pursued by a killer virus, Angel flees to Muck for answers.

Together they struggle to comprehend the conspiracy that entangles both their lives. Can Muck and the angel on his shoulder recover Siren before it’s too late? Or will he lose everything that matters to him one more time?

A noir look into the AI world

loved the way the AI characters come alive and the multilayered story that leaves you wanting more. bizarre but beautiful, the themes of men and machine in an alien world should make us think about integr6of tech and flesh. great book.

An amazing story

This story is very unique. It is beautifully woven together in a way that keeps the listener engaged from start to finish. The quality of the three performers is high, bested only by the quality of writing. Barber and Ezell are outstanding storytellers. I leave this book hoping for another book in the series to be published soon!

Excellent & original Sci-fi noir

Second Chance Angel is a beautifully written, fun, and original noir science fiction novel.
The central original premise is the artificial intelligence “Angel” implanted in human soldiers by alien “Mentors”, with unclear abilities and repercussions.
One such angel finds itself separated from its host, and must join with another human to unravel the mystery.

Second Chance Angel indeed

seriously old school noir story. Veterans of a devastating war, working out a living in a bleak but at the same time vibrant world. the nonhuman characters are very interesting and compelling. it's a hell of a good ride.

Very nice AI story

While the basic story of this book is nothing new the authors take on it is very good. Great character development, and a believable universe to set the story in. Hopefully we will see this story continue.

Vulgar language

This could have been an amazing book with a very interesting plot. The constant use of the F word to make it edgy was a real turn off. I can’t imagine artificial intelligence using such low intelligence verbiage’s to make it have feeling or even to show intelligence.
