Book Description

Finalist, 2014 USA Best Book Awards - Humor



"An entertaining romp through a world of smack-talking demons, less-than-angelic angels, demon-hunting Templars and everything in between." ~T.L.Costa, Author of PLAYING TYLER (2014 Nautilus Silver Award Winner for Young Adult Fiction, Winner of the 2013 USA Best Book Award for Young Adult Fiction)



"A fast paced, action-packed, humorous page turner that was really difficult to put down even when I had other pressing concerns nagging me." ~Rakib Khan, Goodreads Review



"Bartholomew is one wickedly entertaining demon... I read the book in a day, I couldn't put it down. The action flowed on every page, and the mystery built and built." ~Melody Winters, Goodreads Review



Working for the man upstairs stinks, but working with Samantha, an angel in training? Offensive!



Only one thing is so powerful, so dangerous that Heaven and Hell must work together to find it: the Shard of Gabriel.



With a mysterious Black Cloud of Death hot on the shard's trail, a desperate Heaven enlists the help of Bartholomew, a demon who knows more about the shard than almost anyone. Six years ago, he had it in his hands. If only he'd used it before his coup to overthrow the Devil failed. Now, he's been sprung from his eternal punishment to help Samantha, an angel in training, recover the shard before the Black Cloud of Death finds it.



If Bart wants to succeed, he'll have to fight the temptation to betray Samantha and the allure of the shard. After an existence full of evil, the only way Bart can get right with Hell is to be good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demons and Angels and Templars, OH MY! May 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
***I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review***

The Book of Bart is a lighthearted, action-packed tale of demons, angels, and adventure that will make you laugh out loud, cringe, and genuinely have a grand time.

Bartholomew is a demon with a grudge, raised from Hell, and sent on a mission from God. Paired off with an innocent, goody angel and an annoying Knights Templar, Bart must learn who's after the last Shard of the mirror of Gabriel. While trapped in the body of a teenager. With millennia's worth of knowledge. And sexual tension. And friends!

Everywhere Bartholomew turns, one of his old "buddies" tries to kill him. He ruins so many suits, the poor guy. And cars. And his condo. He's a demon who loves nice things, virgins, vodka, smoking, and causing problems everywhere he goes. But the more time he spends with Sam (Samantha), the more trouble he finds himself in, rather than unsuspecting humans.

And the closer Bart and his odd team get to the truth, the more he must rely on the help of those around him. You will not want to miss out on this fun read!

*DISCLAIMER: Lots of sexual innuendos and situations some parents might not find appropriate for their young readers. There is smoking and drinking and crude comedy. You've been warned.*

When it comes to books about snarky demons who get kicked from hell for bad behavior, but ends up on a do-gooder team with a wannabe archangel and loverboy templar in a mission to save the world, I can be a little picky. Not just any book will do, as I do try to keep high standards.

Happy to report that The Book of Bart was built to satisfy.

If there's one thing that author Ryan Hill is particularly gifted at, it's rolling narrative that keeps you attentive and snickering all the while. I cared about what they all had to say, even the stupid Templar with his ridiculous chivalry and grudges. Comedic timing is spot-on and every line is golden. Not only did Hill keep the conversation rolling without hitch, but every page is filled with tension as these cut-ups try to do the improvable. It makes for an easy read that you seriously can't put down. Just when you think it just can't get worse, it certainly does... and normally at the cost of car or dress suit. The cast of characters is vast but well-written. Hill clearly spared no literary expense in the completion of this novel, but I'm sure that he had to make a deal with...someone...to ensure that his book would be written so well.

Bartholomew would be so proud.

I hate to say that I have no criticisms, because I honestly don't. But for the sake of keeping my review balanced...hey, Hill! You could have devoted at least one chapter to a thorough description of Bart's abs. You know he deserved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to have fun? Then this is a story for you August 17, 2014
By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition
Want to have fun? Then this is a story for you. It's quick and compelling. Usually this much sarcasm or snark crosses the line from funny into pitiful -- really, there's something pitiful about sarcasm so deep it exposes the insecurities of the character dishing it. Not in this case. The funny runs true and believable from the first. Bart believes in his own superiority without hesitation. You want that in a demon. The other characters aren't as layered, but that's OK, since this is Bart's story. This is fun for all ages. Hope to see more about Bart in the future because that door was left wide open. As another reviewer noted, not crazy about the cover. But don't let that stop you. Have some fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing! Never a dull moment! December 6, 2014
By sheena
Format:Paperback
I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an unbiased review. I just noticed the book was also on Amazon so I figured I would copy paste my review here to help others decide if they want to purchase this book. This review is for the paperback version ONLY.

The first thing I have to say is Where has this author been and why has it taken me so long to discover him? The writing is humorous, action packed, and fast paced. There is a never a dull moment and I found my attention held the entire time. Some books I have read I have found myself skimming over a few sentences (or paragraphs, I'll be honest) here and there. Not so with Mr. Hill's work; I was hanging on every word.

Another pro about the book is that it is divided up into many short chapters. This allows those who only have a few minutes here and there for reading to easily be able to pick up where they left off: at the end of an actual chapter and not just midsentence or paragraph somewhere. And for those who read for long periods of time, well then you'll just get more chapters done in one setting. And trust me, you'll want to due to the non-stop story line.

Bart was by far my favorite character, though a demon he would be impossible for even the most die-hard angelic fan not to like. Sam and Josh were well developed too and the banter between them was quite entertaining. There was more than once I actually mumbled a comment to myself out loud as I read through their adventure. The ending was one I didn't see coming, though once I read it I probably should have. Discovering who Vixen was definitely came at a perfect time for the flow of the story.

While the ending tied things up, it also left some things open to where a second book could be written if the author chose. I do hope that there will be a sequel released. I'd love to see what Bart, excuse me, Bartholomew, Sam, and Josh will be up to in the future.

More About the Author

Growing up, Ryan Hill used to spend his time reading and writing instead of doing homework. This resulted in an obsession with becoming a writer, but also a gross incompetence in the fields of science and mathematics. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Ryan has been a film critic for over five years. He lives in Raleigh, NC, with his dog/shadow Maggie. Ryan also feels strange about referring to himself in the third person.
