"The Unnoticeables is a funny and frightening urban fantasy. There are angels, and they are not beneficent or loving. But they do watch over us. They watch our lives unfold, analyzing us for repeating patterns and redundancies. When they find them, the angels simplify those patterns and remove the redundancies, and the problem that is "you" gets solved. Carey doesn't much like that idea. As a punk living in New York City, 1977, Carey is sick and tired of watching strange kids with unnoticeable faces abduct his friends. He doesn't care about the rumors of tar-monsters in the sewers or unkillable psychopaths invading the punk scene--all he wants is to drink cheap beer and dispense ass-kickings. Kaitlyn isn't sure what she's doing with her life. She came to Hollywood in 2013 to be a stunt woman, but last night a former teen heartthrob tried to eat her, her best friend has just gone missing, and there's an angel outside her apartment. Whatever she plans on doing with her life, it should probably happen in the few remaining minutes she has left. There are angels. There are demons. They are the same thing. It's up to Carey and Kaitlyn to stop them. The survival of the human race is in their hands. We are, all of us, well and truly screwed"-- Provided by publisher.

This is a good book! The writing is fantastic and the genre is fantasy (which I am not a huge fan of), but not so-far-out fantasy that a person cannot relate to the story. One must employ just enough imagination to accept the premise, and then it's a nice little ride. Author does a good job of ending chapters with the reader wanting to know what happens next. I would recommend this book.

Surprisingly great storytelling here, considering the author is an editor for Cracked magazine (apparently there is some serious talent in that organization). Usually, I'm not fond of timeline jumping in novels, but the gimmick works rather well in this book, as we alternatively bounce between main characters punk-rocker Casey in 1977 New York City, and part-time stuntwoman Kaitlyn in 2013 Los Angeles. The characters do converge in the latter-half of the book. I'm hoping this will have a sequel...
