    A must read!

    I usually read James Patterson and Mary Higgings Clark. This is the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. I couldn't put the book down, that's how much it kept my interest. Can't wait for another by this author. Highly recommend!

    Characters are stupid and undeveloped. Am I supposed to like Maggie? Because I sure don't, she's stupid, doesn't listen or learn and is completely unlikeable. Zack you pretty much just want to shut up and go away .. and don't get me started on Brenda. I bought this based on the reviews and I am greatly disappointed. DO NOT BUY, waste of money and time.

    Fun and Entertaining!

    Harry (that's short for Harriet) is a kindergarten teacher with a small addiction to Blue Fox novels, which her employee does not approve - when she gets a new 5 year old into her class she isn't expecting the kid to come with aggressive bodybuilders who try to take her down. She's about to kick some serious ass when she's drawn through a portal and loses a whole month, but that is not the weirdest thing yet, she wakes up in a spa in Japan, apparently having passed a job interview. Now most people would be frazzled, but she takes the events on Blue Fox style, not friggin out to be more exact.

    She's been hired, not as kindergarten teacher, but a Paladin to do the work of a "fallen" angel who very much so wants to get back on the good graces of god - since who does want to life the rest of their lives in the fires of Hell after all? Now Harry is dead and Maggie Black is born to punish the wicked and help the innocent - to be precise she has to find and kill a boy, Zack, to make sure world doesn't suffer the evil consequences, it should not matter that the boy is innocent.
    Battling the supernatural isn't exactly easy and she meets Silas with a past worth telling and it doesn't take long for her to develop feeling for the man.

    The plots interesting, and funny, full of witty remarks and humor. The story is fun to read, and really does have the air of Kill Bill and Hell Boy, this is paranormal story that men will enjoy! Now there were parts where the story slipped a little from me and I had to focus back on the feel of the book. Entertaining journey nonetheless.

    Quick and Fun

    What I liked most about this book was its freshness, not only in plot, but also in writing style. As readers in this modern age, we are constantly bombarded by supernatural mysteries, etc. which while fun, tends to run in the same direction ie vampires, werewolves, zombies. This book is a bit different, which is why it made it a pretty interesting read.
    The characters were well done. Larry, the angel who recruits Harriet (or Maggie as her alter ego is called) is hilarious, with many moments of dialogue where he has us laughing out loud. He tends to steal every scene he is in, which is a bit of a problem sometimes. We are supposed to care more for Harriet, and yet, we are drawn to Larry. The whole Silas and Harriet relationship feels a bit thin, it progresses too quickly. Silas, however, is a great character, with a lot of great history that adds quite a bit to the plot.
    As with many books, this one could have used a bit more careful editing, just because there are, here and there, some syntax issued. It is not too bad, though, it definitely does not interfere with the story so do not hesitate to pick it up on that account.
    If you're looking for a fun, quick-paced paranormal mystery, this one is a good choice.

    A page turner!

    I must say that this story was a real surprise. I personally don't care for urban fantasy,(my wife bought this)but the cover was intriguing. Thought I would thumb through, but ended up reading it in one sitting!
    The characters were very well developed and the plot moved along effortlessly. There were so many twists and turns that I never guessed how it would end.
    I not only do I highly recomend it, I hope that it is the first of a series!
