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


A wealthy actress, Whitney Tyler, requested the help of Angel, Cordelia, and Doyle. She played a vampire on a popular TV show, and a small number of viewers seemed to believe she was actually a real vampire and had made attempts to kill her. Doyle was pleased the case wasn't relying on painful visions and Cordelia was starstruck, but Angel was confused; Whitney resembled someone he knew two centuries earlier. The attempts to kill Whitney continued, while Angel, Doyle and Cordy discovered a symbol that linked the attackers to an ancient battle. Angel had to put the pieces together.


The events took place after "Soul Trade", but before "Shakedown".

Allen Francis Doyle: "Irish monks in the sixth centrury took themselves off on a little trip to the Middle East thinking they were going to learn how to distil perfumes. Instead they came back with the recipe for good Irish sipping whiskey. They called it Uisce Beatha, the Water of Life."
