Only one thing is so powerful, so dangerous that Heaven and Hell must work together to find it: the Shard of Gabriel.
With a mysterious Black Cloud of Death hot on the shard’s trail, a desperate Heaven enlists the help of Bart, a demon who knows more about the shard than almost anyone. Six years ago, he had it in his hands. If only he’d used it before his coup to overthrow the devil failed. Now, he’s been sprung from his eternal punishment to help Samantha, an angel in training, recover the shard before the Black Cloud of Death finds it.
If Bartholomew wants to succeed, he’ll have to fight the temptation to betray Samantha and the allure of the shard. After an existence full of evil, the only way Bart can get right with Hell is to be good.
And last, but certainly not least, check out my review of THE BOOK OF BART!:
When it comes to books about snarky demons who get kicked from hell for bad behavior, but ends up on a do-gooder team with a wannabe archangel and loverboy templar in a mission to save the world, I can be a little picky. Not just any book will do, as I do try to keep high standards.
Happy to report that The Book of Bart was built to satisfy.
If there’s one thing that author Ryan Hill is particularly gifted at, it’s rolling narrative that keeps you attentive and snickering all the while. I cared about what they all had to say, even the stupid Templar with his ridiculous chivalry and grudges. Comedic timing is spot-on and every line is golden. Not only did Hill keep the conversation rolling without hitch, but every page is filled with tension as these cut-ups try to do the improvable. It makes for an easy read that you seriously can’t put down. Just when you think it just can’t get worse, it certainly does… and normally at the cost of car or dress suit. The cast of characters is vast but well-written. Hill clearly spared no literary expense in the completion of this novel, but I’m sure that he had to make a deal with…someone…to ensure that his book would be written so well.
Bartholomew would be so proud.
I hate to say that I have no criticisms, because I honestly don’t. But for the sake of keeping my review balanced…hey, Hill! You could have devoted at least one chapter to a thorough description of Bart’s abs. You know he deserved it.
