When an ancient book capable of summoning a demon is stolen from heaven, Narius, a young and not so bright angel of knowledge, is cast down and ordered to destroy it.
If he fails, he can never return to his blissful life as a lazy library guard.
Fortunately, to aid him in his quest, Narius is accompanied by the Codex, a theoretically holy book, who sprouts terrible courtship advice like a cheap fortune cookie.
Upon arrival to the world below his, Narius is tricked into helping Emily, a greedy sorceress in a bit of a pickle, trying to deal with a hungry dragon.
Together, the human and the angel must overcome enchanted apples, evil elves and the impoverished dragon or risk watching their world burn.
When Narius, an angel,is sent from heaven to find and destroy an evil book, capable of summoning a demon, he meets a human girl called Emily and is stunned by her beauty and together they go on an epic adventure that will change their lives as they know them.
This book haws a very interesting plot and very amazing characthers, there's a mix of wizardry, angels and common life being and it all blends together just right.
In the beggining it's a slow read and everything takes a lot of time until you get to the climax and that may make you put down the book for a little while but don't do it, it's worth it! This book will get better as you get more into the story itself.
The hilarious interventions from the Codex, a holy book that is supposed to advise Narius, and the way the angel is so innocent that he believes everything it says to him will  make you laugh until your stomach hurts.
This book is perfect for supernatural lovers that appreciate a few dirty jokes along the way.
Since magic and love to adventure and pit fights this  book has it all, so go pick it up and tell me what you tought!

Book Links:


  1. This sounds like such an intriguing book! A holy book that sprouts useless advice and a gullible angel? I think I might have found my next enjoyable read! :) Great review!

  2. A "not so bright angel of knowledge" is a interesting oxymoron. I wish I had time to read this or I would borrow it on Prime for free. If it were an audio book I could snag I would be happy to read it.

    1. BTW - the amazon link took me away from your site so it must not have the target = "_blank" tag
