The story opens with to lovers enjoying each other's bodies under the stars out from the prying eyes of their small town. The two men are reveling in their shared moment of peace and togetherness. They eventually realize that they must return to society and head back to town. It is when one of these young men returns to Wren County that he is met by a sinister laugh.
We are next introduced to Kincade who is returning to his hometown for the first time since leaving. He has much trepidation about returning as all he remembers about the town was the bigots and bullies. These are the people that do not understand his choice of lifestyle and made his life hell from nearly day one.
The reader finds out that Wren Country is like many small towns around the United States. You have those families that have the money and the power and are not afraid to use it. Locals are those who matter and if you move into town you may never be really a part of the town. Lastly, they can be a conservative bastion and those with a liberal mindset or live differently are ridiculed relentlessly. This is the life that Kincade and his deceased brother endured as they grew up in Wren.
Kincade's arrival to town does not go without notice as some of the locals are aware of his return. The one person who is thrilled to see him is his mother. She is a woman that works hard for a local company and is ready to leave that life to move out of Wren County. As a reader you can understand why she feels that way as she helps to lend to the feelings of revenge Kincade is dealing with. You see his brother, his twin brother, was murdered and he wants revenge.
This is what the reader gets to discover, and it's who killed Kincade's brother. There are dark reasoning's to why this happened and there appears to be a large cover up. The town's sheriff and his deputies are part of this cover up and Kincade knows he will get no help there. There are others and in town and before Kincade can fully start his search he is met with another tragedy. His mother is killed.
The Angels of Autumn takes the reader on a further journey as the hate Kincade feels for what has happened to his family drives him to find out what happened. As he searches for the truth Kincade will find the man who loved his brother, and a man to love Kincade.
The problem is that no matter what you may begin to think about the people in this town you find will find out there is something much worse underneath all that is happening. The evil taking over the town and turning neighbor against neighbor has set its eyes on Kincade and any who may help him.
The Angels of Autumn is a book that some may have a hard time reading due to some of the subject matter. There are those who will not get past the homosexual encounters, or the political bashing. On a personal note I almost did not get past the political side, but I gave the book a chance and found a good supernatural story. Joshua Sky was able to take all that subject matter and bring forth an engaging story and Pink Pepper Press was the ones who saw that and printed the book.
