Bartholomew (don’t call him Bart and don’t ruin his suit) is a demon sent to Earth to help an angel-in-training, Samantha, retrieve the Shard of Gabriel. To say he isn’t happy about this is an understatement, but being him, he’s along for the ride if only to see how he can turn this to his advantage.
While he thinks the whole mission is beyond foolish, he somehow believes it’ll be an easy enough job, but it’s complicated by bad luck, his friends turning on him, unknown enemies, and – oh yeah – a Black Cloud of Death. Will Bart and Sam find the Shard? Why are Heaven and Hell working together? And will Bart be tempted to switch sides? (The answer to that is maybe, depending on the moral wiggle room Heaven is willing to allow.)
The book is definitely recommended for fans of urban fantasy/paranormal, action, sarcasm, and heroes with a dark side. No romance, folks. So, don’t go looking for it.
He is hilarious, his voice throughout the book is so entertaining to read, so snarky, with the funniest quips I've ever read. Not only does this novel have an engaging, action-filled fantasy plot which further excites a reader, but I would have honestly just read this for Bart's hilarious perspective, even if he was working a boring day job at Subway (which he isn't, he is WAY too cool for Subway, he likes fine things and expensive cars and thousand-dollar suits and hot women to corrupt).
YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK if you want a new best friend in Bart. It's a great book to curl up to after a long day of dealing with BS at work/your life in general, because what YOU can't say in real life Bart WILL say in this book. The best part is, even though he's got a fantastic, sarcastic way about him, he's a softie on the inside. Never did I feel like he was legitimately an evil character, which speaks to Hill's talent to create such a likeable protagonist who is "supposed" to be a villain.
As you read on your find that Bart isn't a villain, oh no, there are hot teachers with secret motives and a black cloud of death that likes to ruin Bart's vehicles and an annoying Templar named Josh who Bart loves to give a hard time--fun, fun, fun all the way though. Samantha is great as the angel assigned to Bart's side, trying her best to be a "heavenly" creature but also acting in her own creative ways to find the Shard of Gabriel.
All in all, five stars for Ryan Hill's "The Book of Bart." It's perfect for readers who want an awesome fantasy story from the perspective of a wise-cracking, Armani suit-wearing demon with a heart of gold. The action never stops, the plot twists keep you turning the pages, and the book's climax leaves a reader satisfied. Highly recommended!
The Book of Bart examines that question when Bart, a displaced demon, is thrown together with an angel and a Templar knight in order to find The Shard of Gabriel.
From the beginning, there is friction among the trio. Kyle, who is a Knight of Templar by default, repeatedly tries to kill Bart. Samantha, the angel, is determined to make Bart behave. But, he has his own agenda, namely, trying to have demon fun, which seems to be thwarted at every turn by a series of unfortunate mishaps.
If Janet Evanovich had a steamy affair with Christopher Moore, Ryan Hill could be their love child. His writing is dialogue-driven, irreverent, and snarky. If you want an engaging, fun-filled read, The Book of Bart should be at the very top of your 2014 Summer Reads list.
