Envy of Angels - Where Do Chicken Nuggies Really Come From?
AUTHOR: Matt Wallace
PUBLISHING DATE: October 20, 2015
FROM GOODREADS: In New York, eating out can be hell.
Everyone loves a well-catered event, and the supernatural community is no different, but where do demons go to satisfy their culinary cravings?
Welcome to Sin du Jour - where devils on horseback are the clients, not the dish.
MY THOUGHTS: I wasn't quite sure what I was about to read when I picked this book up. I remember grabbing it for my Kindle one weekend when it was on sale for under $3.00 after seeing a few decent reviews. I also recall being on a horror kick when I grabbed it and wanting to check out some new authors. All I can say is for whatever reason I grabbed this, thank heavens I did!
This book was a total blast. Sin du Jour is a special catering company in New York whose clients consist of a certain branch of individuals the government wants to keep happy, and who they also want to keep a secret. We are talking about demons, monster, etc. here so that alone should be enough to make you curious. This book has it all - action, suspense, horror, great characters and monsters. We are talking different demon factions, a giant chicken, angels, alchemists and even humans. Come on, one of the companies mottos is "We don't serve werewolf, and we don't serve werewolves." I laughed out loud at that and since we had been snowbound for three days, I am sure my husband thought I was losing my mind.
It's really hard to describe this book without giving a lot away, but you seriously have to give it a chance. When I looked at the cover, I could never quite figure it out, but those are chicken "nuggies" making the body of the angel so that alone should make you want to grab it. It's a quick read and I already plan on starting book 2 tonight.
RATING: 4 PAWS
BOOKER T'S THOUGHTS: First of all, you might not guess it from the cover, but there is a dog in this book. It is described as a Shiz hu stray and it's name is "DOG." Original huh? But believe me, I have heard worse. The dog doesn't play a HUGE role in the book, but it does play a VITAL role. You definitely have to read it to find out but for no other reason than the role it plays, DOG gets 5 paws!
