Choosing between GOOD and EVIL is harder than you might think.
My name is Barry, although it might as well be Loser. Satan owns my soul, and my demon boss, Margery, tortures me with her magical cigarettes every chance she gets. While I'm desperate for freedom, I'll do anything to stop her from opening the Gates of Hell...or any other crazy thing she has planned. My odds of saving mankind are uncertain, but I have to try.
Call for Obstruction is the introduction to The Courier series. It won the Textnovel Writing Contest for its unique characters and dark humor. It's fast-paced like a video game and hard to pause.
Read this book if you're a fan of Christopher Moore, Terry Pratchet, or Jim Butcher. You're sure to have a damned good time!

The basic plot, with-out much in the way of spoilers, is Barry, down on his luck, accepts a job he shouldn’t and gets dragged deeper and deeper into a supernatural war. Bad part is that he’s NOT on the side of angels, and if the bad guys win Barry has helped bring about hell on earth.
I liked it, I bet you will as well.
I would certainly read the next volume. This story was fun. Despite the last 20 pages I enjoyed it. The pacing kept pace and the various characters were fun. Plus, there were some fun plot twists throughout the book.
The blurb for this book say to listen if you are a fan of Jim Butcher or Christopher Pratt. I would say that this is more in line with Christopher Pratt than Jim Butcher [although I am a fan of both.] The story is full of sarcasm, witty observations and a fun take of Satan v. Angels taking over the world through a courier service. I especially loved Margery, Barry's boss, who is described as a 5 foot tall Troll doll [including the height of her hair], plus the narrator provided her with a Jewish New York accent - which made me like her even more.
The narrator, Jack Wallen, was excellent. He narrated at a good pace and provided distinctive character voices.
With wanting to stop the Apocalypse and trying to keep his love interest the air-headed Nina alive Barry has his work cut out for him.
The story is very fast-pasted and takes place within a week. With an odd cast of characters the story grips you the whole way through.
