Scar Night by Alan Campbell was previously reviewed by our UK Editor John Berlyne in July 2006.

Scar Night is the dark of the moon, when Carnival the soul-thief prowls the streets of Deepgate and snatches away the life (and blood) of some poor unfortunate. Centuries of effort by the Church of Ulcis and their legion of assassins--the Spine--have failed to catch or kill her.

Scar Night is also the name of Alan Campbell's debut novel. Richly imagined and ingeniously plotted, the book marks the emergence of a new and exciting voice in fantasy.

From official release/information:

From back of book: The city of Deepgate, suspended by chains over a seemingly bottomless abyss, is home to two angels: one, an untested boy, the last of his line, the other a psychotic murderer mad for revenge--or redemption. When a traitor brings enemies to its doorstep, both angels seek a powerful magic at the bottom of the chasm--and learn that what lies there is anything but what they've been taught to expect...
