Pulling the Wings Off Angels

Pulling the Wings Off Angels is a madcap adventure brimming with the ethical quandaries and sardonic wit of The Good Place by World Fantasy Award-winning author K. J. Parker

Long ago, a wealthy man stole an angel and hid her in a chapel, where she remains imprisoned to this day.

That’s the legend, anyway.

A clerical student who’s racked up gambling debts to a local gangster is given an ultimatum—deliver the angel his grandfather kidnapped, or forfeit various body parts in payment.

And so begins a whirlwind theological paradox—with the student at its center—in which the stakes are the necessity of God, the existence of destiny—and the nature of angels.

“Rich with spiky ideas and with Parker’s inimitable and always entertaining voice.” —Locus

“A fresh take on the well-trod demonic possession trope…[that] will draw in fans of dark speculative fiction, especially admirers of Martha Wells and Grady Hendrix.”—Library Journal
