Working for the man upstairs stinks, but working with Samantha, an angel in training? Offensive!
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 Bartholomew, 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 Bart 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.
Bart has now surpassed Crowley as my favorite resident of Hell. He possesses a surplus of snark, smokes way too much, and has an insatiable desire for virgins.
The story is action packed, fast paced, and tons of fun. I couldn't put the book down and would get all pouty when I had to stop reading and participate in real life.
If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman's Good Omens, then you'll enjoy The Book of Bart! Trust me...just read it.
