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.
I'll be honest, I got halfway through this book and stopped reading it for a while. Not because it wasn't good, because holy crap balls this book is hilarious. It's also well written and I loved the characters. Even Bartholomew. I had some things occur, and I put it on hold. I didn't want that to affect my view, so I put it off.
Finally, I decided to suck it up and finish it. I started the book over. ...I can't believe I ever put it down in the first place.
This book is freaking hilarious. I was SNORTING in public. At one point there was Dr Pepper coming out of my nose.
There's also a ton of action and a good deal of drama. One thing to note is that it's definately more of a mature YA read.
Absolutely loved the ending. It was perfect and fantastic. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
I suggest you pick this one up immediately and read it, because it was freaking ... gah! I highlighted so many parts!
