The concluding volume in the humorous punk rock adventure that began with The Unnoticeables and The Empty Ones.
After the events of the first two books of the Vicious Circle series, Carey and Randall reached LA during the early '80s punk scene, which was heavily mixed up with Chinatown. A young Chinese girl with silver hair is the Empty One that seems to run things there, and her ex-lover, an Empty One named Zang, has apparently turned against them and may or may not be on Carey's side.
In modern times, Kaitlyn and company have also returned to LA because her powers have been growing and she has been having visions that may be telling her how to kill all of the angels. The downside being that they have to find a new one, first - and LA is the only place they know where to do that.
Steeped in the LA punk scene in the '80s, Chinatown, sunken suburbs, the ocean and gargantuan things that swim in it, Kill All Angels is everything that fans of Robert Brockway's irreverent humor have been looking for to end the series with a bang.

A punk's requiem and the fate of the world
If someone had pitched this book to me as the story of a sun-baked, hungover punk; a brain-washed, spoon-fed actress; and a wide-shouldered, self-conscious stunt woman, brandishing their peculiar talents in a behind-the-curtain defense of the world as we know it, I probably would have listened to it sooner.
I thank all angels and space whales picking up this signal for allowing me to come across this series. Not only was the narrative engaging, but the personalities evoked by the beautiful writing and brilliant ensemble performance were captivating, compelling, comedic, contemplative, and down-right corny, a hodgepodge of emotions at every turn ensuring that you're not quite sure when you should take a break.

I loved this book, the series, and the readers. while I am sad that this is the end I am happy with how it ended.

After finishing the 3rd book.
Carey is very funny but seems to be really preoccupied with sex and liquor. little distracting from the story.
Caitlyn is obsessed with her bed threw out the books little repetitive.
Ok, you have a fabulous bed let's move on.
The main characters don't seem like they connect on any level. no emotions just telling a story.
How did they get back across the border?
It was overall a good story.

This is one of those stories that I want to gone on forever. Like if I could reach into the author's brain and take out his imagination so I could keep the story universe alive forever.... f*ck yeah.

Overall, it was a satisfying conclusion!
I have to get one thing of my chest before starting the review properly; where is Meryl in this story? She walks away from the battle at the end of the second book and this is the last we see of her, apart from a few cursory mentions towards the end of 'Kill All Angels'.
**END OF SPOILER**
With that out of the way, I did enjoy this third entry on the whole, but my view is a lot more weighted than with the first two books:
- The big developments largely succeed in landing, but the final "twist" did not really stick for me.
- The majority of the characters are just as solid as they have been all series, but Gi is a one dimensional villain with no real development or menace behind her. Similarly, I find it confusing, in that Gi is certainly less of a threat than Meryl ever was...
- Carey's story is really heartbreaking and genuinely made my heart bleed with empathy, but Brockway pulls the same trick he does in 'The Empty Ones', by pulling one of the characters from the Carey timeline into to Kaitlyn story and it's less impressive the second time around. In addition, I can't help but feel that the author continues to retcon Carey's history in order to make it better fit with the Kaitlyn timeline in the present.
- I enjoyed the journey each of the characters undertakes, but there is large amounts of unfinished business that Brockway never addresses.
I recommend 'Kill All Angels', it is a good finale and great closer to as series I have fully enjoyed, from start to finish.
