Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of those novels I occasionally pick up where my thoughts are, `Damn, I wish the author hadn't been in such a hurry to publish!' The potential for a top notch story was extremely high. We have one psychotic killer trying to hunt down and kill another psychotic killer and I found it a nice change of pace from the usual good guy/bad guy scenario we see. Unfortunately, though the characters and plot are interesting, the execution of the text reads more like a rough draft than a polished novel.

Editing is pretty much nonexistent. Expect to run into a gazillion grammar and punctuation errors as well as spelling mistakes and improper word usage. It's bad enough I couldn't make sense out of sentences at times and was forced to skim over it. More than once the writing gets lost handing out pages and pages of information not important to the story. In my opinion a good editor could have whipped this story into shape in no time. Though better plot and character development would have helped, it was sentence structure and spelling mistakes that really let this down. But, and this is a big but, even with the text in such poor shape, I still read the entire novel almost in one sitting. With so much potential, I wanted to give this a higher rating--could easily have hit 4.5 or 5 stars, but ultimately the execution in the end let me down and I can't justify higher than 2 stars. However, I have a feeling this author will be one to watch out for in the future.

Format: Paperback
I am going to warn you that this book is not for the meek and mild, but if you like dark tales; this is one grasping read. The main character, a serial killer called Matt was once told by his grandfather to put his hate and fear from the Vietnam War and his horrid life back into "the box" - but not to forget it. He continues to tell Matt that it is okay to take the pain out of that box once and awhile and Matt does do so without hesitation. For every pain and horrific thing he saw and experienced as a child and as a soldier he unleashes the contents of that box on to others without blinking an eye. The rage against young females is relentless and it continues until one fateful day. This dark book which will keep you on the edge of your literary seat is not your ordinary book by not your ordinary author. Raw and gripping sums it all up.

Editor or storyteller? Which would you rather be stranded with on the proverbial uninhabited island, assuming either would be too old and/or physically unattractive to distract from the choice? Or, let's try it this way: which would you rather curl up with on a lazy summer afternoon, a copy of Elements of Style by Strunk and White or Charlotte's Web by E.B. White?

All those who would choose the style book over the novel need read no further. I have great respect for Elements of Style, which has taught me much, including how to write effective prose with clarity and accuracy, and reading it again might shed some light on how a storyteller spins words into magic. But it can't convey that magic. What it does is the same as explaining why a joke is funny instead of making us laugh.

Kenneth Sibbett is a storyteller. His tales are so engaging, so powerful, so ingenious he needs no editor for this to be abundantly clear to anyone who reads for entertainment rather than the sublime academic satisfactions to be derived from exquisitely placed commas, sexy symmetries of proper participle performance or the sheer unmitigated majesty of perfect spelling.

A Killer of Angels is a showcase for the primacy of narrative over nitpicking. Sibbett wrote this novel with the same daring and raw talent as a highwire artist who boogaloos along a spaghetti-thin cable from one edge of the Grand Canyon to the other. There's no net above the canyon floor, and there was no editor covering Sibbett's ass when he sent this novel to the presses. It might be nice to have the best of both worlds - Sibbett's masterful storytelling rendered bump-free by an expert editor. It's also nice to see a precious gem prepared and displayed as fine jewelry.

Way too many grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors to read all the way. Got to the 4th chapter and gave up hope.
