“I can go back. I can watch. I can be told and can tell; but do as I will, I cannot change things. That is the Law of Angels.”
Maybe you once met Tommy Angelo.
Tall. Striking. Swimmer’s body. Silver-platinum hair; mesmerizing eyes like a rainbow. A street-wise “massage therapist” with a gift for making his clients very happy. Tommy’s in a long-term relationship with Bert. Very long—close to a millennium. See, Tommy and Bert are angels, but not exactly from a Hallmark greeting card. No wings. Sexually free. Amazingly giving.
Angel Lust wanders through a white-hot region where intense eros and spirituality explore one another. Unashamedly. It connects Tommy Angelo to his past life. That of Thomas Jebson, a teenage serf in the violent England of William the Conqueror. One evening, alone in a strange wilderness, he met a handsome young foreign knight—from the land at the End of the Mountain—who promised to love him.
For all time.
Their story, one of constant erotic suspense, introduces us to a gay cult of fearless Robin Hood-like forest men, led by the “bear” to end all bears! To robber barons, medieval renegades, towering castles and the hot secret depths of woodlands. Also, to a modern sexual underground where labels like “gay” and “straight” mean little. To Brooklyn factory men. Street machos. Nightclub witches. And, of course, New York real estate sharks. To political corruption and human goodness, all in a wild modern landscape where one of New York’s most famous (and sometimes gay-friendly) recent mayors is to be found trolling through gay clubs in drag!
Angel Lust is a story of constant action, combined with the kind of gorgeous, mind-blowing erotic encounters for which Perry Brass has become justly famous.
Angel Lust is a journey of a thousand years. And it’s waiting right now for you to begin it.
“The book, perhaps the author’s most ambitious novel to date, recounts the tale of Tommy Angel, an unlicensed ‘massage therapist’ in New York City . . . . The story is beautifully told, and the switches in time are accomplished deftly. Brass’s ability to go from describing seedy gay bars in New York to 11th century castles is a testament to his skills as a writer. He captures modern urban vernacular with ease, and even his archaic-sounding Olde English rings true.” The Gay and Lesbian Review, Boston. Finalist Lambda Literary Award, 2001, for gay and lesbian science fiction and fantasy.
