Book Review: Black-Winged Tuesday (The Tuesday Series Book 1) by A.B. Rayn

318 pagesUnlucky in life, twice as unlucky in the after-life? About ten seconds after terminally unlucky Herman Morrie arrives in the afterlife, his expectations are broadsided by the eighteen-wheeler of reality. Heaven and Hell are real, and the choice - Good, Bad, or Neutral - is up to him. And no sitting around harp-strumming, either - there's work to be done helping other poor souls back on earth.

He makes the only choice a straight-laced, regular guy could make - to become a Good guardian angel - only to find out he's got a Bad for a partner and his choice is... probationary.

In his struggle figure out what it really means to be Good in this topsy-turvy new world, he'll have to face were-beavers, old sweethearts, archangels, and even Lucifer himself. And still, death may turn out to be the best thing that's ever happened to him.

BLACK-WINGED TUESDAY is a genre-bending romp through the afterlife, complete with "laughter, evil, and blush-worthy erotic intrigue."

Fans of Christopher Moore, Douglas Adams, and Tom Robbins will love this irreverent comedy. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, pick up Black-Winged Tuesday today.

Picture're in your living room sitting on your couch and a jet engine falls from the sky and smashes you and your belongings into just a smear on the basement floor. Freaky accident huh? Well, for Herman Morrie it's just another unlucky Tuesday. You see, Tuesday's are his unlucky days and this was apparently (and hopefully) his last one!

This book reminded me of one of my favorite (but too short lived) TV series called "Dead Like Me". Anyone out there see it? Addicting! I was hooked on that show and was hooked from the first chapter in this book. Fun, snarky, well penned and engaging...many of my hallmarks for a good story.

Herman Morrie (even the name sounds unlucky), deceased, now must learn to navigate the here-after with a smart-aleck mentor and some luscious fallen angels. Assigned as a guardian angel he has about a year (?) to decide if he wants to be on the "good" side or the "bad" side. There are perks to both and apparently it is up to him to decide what color wings he will eventually end up with. You even find yourself questioning just which side you would choose if you were in his position!

Great scenes, great characters and great storyline will keep you turning pages until the wee hours of the morning. I know there are more episodes to come in this debut series and I, for one, will be highly anticipating the next installment!
