Are there human-like angels walking the earth today? New York Times bestselling author Javier Sierra explores the question in his heart-pounding new thriller about modern evil, and about mankind's most ancient desire–to communicate directly with the Almighty.
In THE LOST ANGELS, Martin Faber, climatologist and a former US NSA operative, is the keeper of a pair of mysterious stones that date back to the 16th Century, and are said to have the power to communicate with God. A little-known Middle Eastern terrorist group plans to bring about the end of the world. Convinced that they are the descendants of angels, they are on the verge of at last returning to heaven if they can secure the talismans that finally help them communicate with angels that they believe live among mankind. The terrorists kidnap Faber to force him to reveal the extraordinary secret he has found through his research. His only hope for survival is his young wife, Julia Alvarez, who possesses a rare gift to bring the scared stones to life.
Javier Sierra, a historian, journalist and internationally bestselling author, spent many years researching the background for THE LOST ANGEL, including climbing 16,945 feet to the peak of Mount Ararat, the site where the biblical Noah's Ark came to rest after the Great Flood.
He is the author of three books of nonfiction concerning historical and scientific enigmas, as well as four successful novels. The Secret Supper, Javier's first book published in the US, hit #6 on The New York Times bestseller list and on bestseller lists in other countries. To date he is published in 37 countries. A native of Spain, he lives in Madrid.
In this AUDIO interview Sierra shares his thoughts about the development of the book and whether he believes angels really do live among us on earth.
