Unlucky in life, twice as unlucky in the after-life? When Tuesday dies and becomes a guardian angel, he's sure his luck has turned. Little does he know he'll have to face were-beavers, old sweethearts, archangels, and even Lucifer himself. Nevertheless, Tuesday's death may turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him.
I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Herman is a very boring guy, which translates to a very boring book. He's killed on a Tuesday, which is his bad luck day, and is immediately brought to the judging room where he's suddenly chosen to be a good angel and is sent out on his first assignment. There's no real explanation of what's happening, there's very little world-building to provide support to the plot, and Herman is so lifeless that any emotion is stifled.
Once he realizes he's dead, Herman shrugs. No big deal, whatever. He's led up a long stairway to make his decision between good and bad and he makes his decision. There's no concern about what that means for his future, what it means in accordance with his past, or even what the difference between good and bad actually is. He meets the charge that he's supposed to be a guardian angel for, realizes the kid is a pill-popping, emotionally unstable were-beaver and shrugs. I was bored by the end of the first chapter. By the end of the third chapter I realized this book had nothing positive going for it. I put the book down and have no will to finish it. It was honestly that bad.
I absolutely do not recommend this book. It was boring, totally lacking in needed emotion, and overall it was just bad. I couldn't make myself finish the book.
