Summary

Imagine Leaving Las Vegas meets City of Angels and American Gods, and you can imagine the power of Severed Wings.

Brandon Jones, a handsome, hopeful young actor, stands on the verge of fame and fortune - when a car accident shatters his life, bringing his career to a screeching halt. Isolating himself, he cuts off his friends and family, turns to booze for companionship, and withdraws to a small apartment on Sunset Boulevard. Now, the only people he interacts with are a drag queen and a student working her way through college as an escort.

Brandon has nothing to live for...until a startlingly beautiful young couple moves in across the hall. Spying through the peephole in his door, he grows increasingly obsessed with his new neighbors - and the parade of damaged strangers who visit them at all hours.

Then something seemingly impossible happens that convinces him that this mysterious couple can help restore all he lost.

Brandon insinuates himself into their lives, and finds himself on a journey from despair into hope - as an ancient secret from the dawn of time draws him head to head with a terrifying foe, bent on destroying everything he’s now come to love.

Once again, Steven-Elliot Altman dares to place his listeners in the company of an embittered anti-hero, in the same manner that inspired Paul Goat Allen of The Barnes & Noble Review to call his best-selling novel, Deprivers, “One of those rare novels that will haunt the reader’s subconscious for a long time”. The author has produced a timeless work that tempts our greater demons and provokes our higher angels.

Critic reviews

"Altman (Deprivers) combines the divine and the profane in this erotically charged urban fantasy". (Publishers Weekly)

“An erotic and lyrical fantasy thriller, aptly set in the city of lost angels". (Poppy Z. Brite, author of Lost Souls and Exquisite Corpse)

“In Severed Wings, Altman delivers a thrilling roller-coaster ride, plunging us headlong into dark territories fraught with unexpected pivots and twists." (Stephen Susco, screenwriter of The Grudge)
