Tomorrow morning at 7:35 AM, a nuclear holocaust will destroy the planet. Two people carry the keys to survival: Jeremy Edgarton, a 16 year old, tech genius and revolutionary; and Eliana, the angelic, off-world traveler sent to Earth on a mission to prevent her planet's death.
Welcome to a future world only heartbeats from our own.
By the late 22nd century, the Great Recession of the early 2000s has lead to a worldwide police state. A ruined United States barely functions. Government control masks chaos, dissenters are sent to camps, and technology is outlawed. War rages while the authorities proclaim the Great Peace.
It's New York City on the eve of nuclear Armageddon.
Join Eliana & Jeremy as they begin a question to save two doomed planets . . . and find each other.
Another Sandy Nathan classic! Aldous Huxley meets Orson Scott Card in this sci-fi thriller with political undertones. If Nathan had written a 300-page non-fiction polemic on nuclear non-proliferation, rising sea levels, and government/media censorship, I might have learned as much, but it wouldn't have been the page-turner that is The Angel.

Sandy Nathan is a talented writer with a gift for creating multi-layered characters and putting them in do-or-die situations. In The Angel & The Brown-Eyed Boy, Ms. Nathan introduces us to a dark Earth of the future where humans have surrendered all freedoms to total government control in order to live in peace. Now a secret from the past threatens to annihilate all life on the planet. Survival--of a sort--can come only from an extraterrestrial "angel" and the boy she has loves. But only if they can act in time. Captivating from the first page onward, this entertaining tale will draw readers in and keep them riveted. Highly recommended.
L.C. Evans, author of Talented Horsewoman
A good book elicits an emotional response while being read; Nathan's book haunts the reader long after the final page is turned. In Angel & the Brown-Eyed Boy two dying worlds fight for survival, their futures dependent on a revolutionary and an angelic otherworldly dancer. Nathan shows us a future Earth whose indifferent citizens and uneducated politicians have allowed their fears to rule them believing everything they are told even in the face of the reality around them. It is a world not that many heartbeats away from our own, making the premise chilling. Is there hope? Yes, Jeremy and Eliana are the key. But to what end? Future volumes of the tale will tell.
