Particularly when you discover there really is a hell. Aden thinks there’s no way he can avoid going down, but when an angel and demon can’t agree over his fate, Aden is given one more month to gain redemption. He doubts he can find a way to become a better man in so short a time. But it’s worth a try, right?
Particularly when you can’t shake free of an obsessive ex. Brody might be managing to hold down his job as a vet, but his personal life is a mess. If he doesn’t pull himself together soon, he’s going to be sliding downhill too fast to stop.
One wet night, on a dark country lane, two worlds collide and destinies change forever.
I positively love how Barbara Elsborg writes fantasy. Though Dirty Angel was almost realistic fantasy to me.
I don’t want to give away this book because the discoveries are what really gave this book that extra dose of amazing. But, so you get the gist. Aden is dead. We know this from the blurb and the first paragraph. Aden had lead a half good and half bad life. So does he goes to Hell or does he go to Heaven?
They do not know. What happens next I LOVED! He has to prove himself. Is he worthy or Heaven, or damned to Hell. He has one month and seven chances. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Sorry, go read the book.
In that month Aden learns a lot about himself. In that month he meets Brody. A broken man. Half confident half vulnerable and ashamed. You’d think that’s the last thing Aden needs but it turns out Brody, and his family are exactly what Aden needs.
There’s unexplained miracles, serious obstacles, life lessons, and horrors that happen and are discovered in the short time Aden is with Brody. When you see Aden’s past I honestly can’t understand why he didn’t go straight to Heaven for the Hell he endured on earth. Brody’s past isn’t much better but Aden? Yeah. Not a fun life. And yet he’s been, and continues to be so heroic!
I really adored all of this story as I do many of Barbara’s books. Her fantasy novels are always outstanding and Dirty Angel is fabulous!!!! SO fabulous! I highly recommend you read this book!
