Thoughts:
Broken Angel by S.W. Vaughn (website | @SWVaughn) was an unexpected surprise. I started to read it and found myself being engrossed in the story and characters. The book explodes with violence which works great with the theme of professional street fighting tournaments.

Despite the gratuitous violence and torture scenes, I found the novel compelling.  The plot is well drawn, the characters are interesting and engaging and the narrative full with enough detail to draw the reader into its world.

The book has several twists which the astute reader probably guessed ahead of time.  The descriptive fights with all the smells, blood and sweat are excellent, while the protagonist if certainly not the underdog type we all enjoy rooting for, he does rise from the bottom to the top in a fast and furious way planting destruction and mayhem along the way.

Broken Angel is an unapologetic book that moves at a furious pace with intriguing characters living on the fringes of society.  One of the strengths of the book is the supporting characters, most of them intriguing, strong and with enough mystery to support the rest of the series.

Synopsis:
Gabriel Morgan’s sister disappeared and he’ll do anything to save her.  Finally Gabriel found her working as a high class prostitute in New York City’s underground society.

Marcus Slade, the head of an organization running street fighters and hookers, will let her go for ten million dollars which Gabriel has to earn through fighting. Forced into a brutal training program Gabriel is given an new persona, Angel, and becomes a fighter for Slade’s organization until his sister’s ransom is paid off.
