Bruja is a novel by Mel Odom centered around Angel and his team.


L.A. is shocked when a woman attacks a priest. The woman had just confessed to the priest that she had murdered her own son. Meanwhile, Angel and Co. get reports of a woman fighting with teens across L.A. The woman appears to be everywhere, a "bruja"... a witch. She may be an embodiment of "La Llorona," known in Spanish lore as the "Weeping Woman." The priest soon goes into a coma, but Angel Investigations is busy with other matters: Doyle has a vision of a young mother and her son in danger at the docks. Meanwhile, Cordelia's looking for a big-shot producer's missing wife. Angel must find the connections between the missing wife and recent events.


The events took place after "Avatar" but before "The Summoned".

Cordelia Chase: "I noticed the bruises on your right arm last Tuesday, and the trouble you had walking a couple days after that. I even noticed the way you put your makeup on a little more heavily. Don't mistake me not saying anything for me not being aware that something was going on."
