So, an angel walks into a bar in Purgatory . . . gets kidnapped . . . gets her wings stolen by a demoness looking to make a fashion statement at a disco party in hell . . . is rescued by a different demon . . . and ends up stranded in Southern California due to the inadvertent interference of an aspiring, young Korean satanist. Then, things start getting freaky.
Jennifer Fales' The Seraph Contingency: Anael's Tale(Outskirts Press, 2012) is so ridiculous it just might be a masterpiece. At times cringe worthy, at times thought provoking, the tale is never boring. If you have a tendency to take life, yourself, and the universe seriously, you probably ought to just skip this one. If you can relax and enjoy the ride, however, The Seraph Contingency is a hoot.
I received a complimentary copy of The Seraph Contingency to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
