Continuing our coverage of excellent novels that have somehow been overlooked for Hollywood feature adaptations, today we’ll visit the first book in a Gothic urban fantasy trilogy. Before you scoff, this isn’t another “young teen girl is revealed to have supernatural abilities but is torn between two equally-attractive and powerful guys.” This story pits assassins against heathens and angels against gods, all taking place in a city of chains suspended over a bottomless abyss. That’s something you don’t see every day. Want to know more? Then hit the jump! Hollywood! Adapt this: Alan Campbell’s Scar Night.
