"[A] well thought out and twisting plot holds the action together. This book will keep you reading." --Stephanie, Books Are Cool

From the Author

Broken Angel -- in fact, the entire House Phoenix series -- started with one character speaking one line of dialogue. Just four words.

I'm not sure what triggered the thought, but that line became the very last sentence of Book One. I think it's a good one. But that's kind of a requirement for an author... if you don't enjoy what you're writing, you probably shouldn't write it.

This whole series has been an adventure for me, and I'm thrilled to share it with anyone interested in coming along for the ride.

By Jessie Potts VINE VOICE on January 24, 2010
Format: Kindle Edition
This is my first S.W. Vaughn book and I'm really happy I had the opportunity to read it. I love the characters, I love the plot, the intricacies between the fighting Houses and the struggle of being an owned man.

Gabriel Morgan has been beaten by his father for 17 years all in the name of protecting his sister Lillith. Now that one happiness in his life is missing, and he will stop at nothing until he finds her. Unfortunately that leads him in to an underground fighting ring complete with prostitution (guess where Lillith is) and protected by the cops who have their own House. The head of Ulysses House, Marcus Slade, sees something in Gabriel. This burning desire to protect at all costs. He uses the threat of rape and murder of his beloved sister over Gabriel and forces him to become one of his fighters. As I'm sure everyone is aware of, no one graciously accepts being forced to fight. This leads to Gabriel meeting Jenner. I loved Jenner's character. He was cold, brutal yet esoteric. Jenner transforms Gabriel into Angel, complete with life size tattoos of wings on his back, and slowly breaks him, to build him up again.

This book was truly magnificent. I could smell the sweat and blood in the ring. Hear the jeers of the audience, and feel the crunch of bone beneath my fist. Vaughn is very good at pulling out the details with stark words and feelings. The plot moves quickly along, and Gabriel is a far cry from the underdog hero who rises to the top. Far, far, from it. The ending will have you cringing and wanting to bang this book against certain character faces. It is sad, but needful if our hero is to ever finally stand on his own. I know the second book will be even bloodier, and I can't wait to see what Jenner ends up doing. If you like gore, brutality, fighting, dirty tricks, cheap whores and worse... you will devour this book.

Broken Angel, by SW Vaughn, breathes with an insistent life of its own, pulling readers along through the dark underworld of barbaric fight clubs and prostitution.

The story unfolds as twenty-two year old Gabriel Morgan, destitute and starving, discovers a lead to his missing sister's whereabouts deep in the seedy underbelly of Manhattan. For two years, Gabe scoured the city in search of his sibling, driven by memories of their traumatic childhood and praying to rescue Lillith from the ring of prostitution into which she's been ensnared.

Slade, cold-hearted leader of an underground street fighting society, has been waiting for the unsuspecting Gabriel. Lillith dangles like a spider's prey in his web, luring Gabe into Slade's trap.

Beneath the glamour and glitz of Fifth Avenue pulses a world fraught with greed, violence, and cruelty. Captured, tortured and held in a secret complex beneath Fifth Avenue, Gabe is chained to a wall in his own private dungeon, where he discovers his fate. Terms for release: ten million dollars. Broke and desperate, Gabe is forced to fight for Slade in exchange for his sister's freedom.

Training is brutal and comes with a price. Jenner, slithering and sadistic, delights in torturing Gabriel, calling him his "angel." The name sticks. Slade bills Angel as his newest weapon; sure that he'll make millions in the no-holds-barred events.

Angel grows stronger and more resilient as the months pass under Jenner's vicious tutelage. Jenner tattoos an elaborate set of wings on Angel's back, driving him into a pain-induced coma. After an excruciating recovery, fight follows fight as Angel strikes blows for freedom. He wins the first, the second, and the third event.

Bro­ken Angel by S.W. Vaughn is a fic­tional book tak­ing place in NYC's under­ground street fight­ing scenes. This is the first book in a the House Phoenix series but can be read as a standalone.

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.

Bro­ken Angel by S.W. Vaughn 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.
