Move aside, vampires--angels with attitudes are starting to replace the undead as the newest form of popular romantic icons. Publishers have already begun the leap with more than a dozen soon-to-be-released books featuring flawed angels as lead characters.
Mainstream culture has always exhibited a fascination with immortal idols, which is evident by the huge cultist following of modern characters from the ever popular 'Twilight' series.
Armed with wings, immortality and made to suffer human emotions, flawed angels may prove to be an even stronger attraction for the masses.
