The road to heaven is paved with Mary Wiles' victims.

Los Angeles isn’t just a playground for those searching for a new start. It’s a darker and more dangerous place than they’ll ever know. But Mary’s not fooled.

With her hands full trying to play human while looking for a way back to heaven, Mary doesn’t have time to polish her halo let alone solve a murder case. But when she finds out demons are responsible, Mary just can’t help herself.

When Mary makes a mistake causing her best friend to be taken, she will have to make a choice: sacrifice an innocent for the chance to get her revenge or lose everything she has worked for. Mary starts to realize there is no clear path back to heaven without becoming tainted herself.

So Mary is really Muriel – an Angel – well actually an Archangel:

Muriel means “Perfume of God.” This is a female archangel who brings peace and harmony to one’s life. She is responsible for carrying around the message of peace and harmony to people on the Earth.

Her angelic responsibilities also include tending the plants and animals on this Earth.

Depicted with a crown made of flowers, it is known that when she is in your presence, you will smell the scent of your favorite flower. When this happens, it will confirm that Archangel Muriel is somewhere near you. [https://www.guardian-angel-reading.com/blog-of-the-angels/archangel-muriel/]

But now she is on Earth after her wings have been removed by demons, she is not quite as peaceful as before – at least when it comes to fighting demons.

She is also not quite au fait with human behaviour and norms and speech. Which gives a lighter touch to this novel which could otherwise be rather dark as is it mostly about the fights she gets into when dealing with possessed humans.

Erin writes a good story and this is a good series of novels about Muriel and how she adapts to her new life and new companions.

For a millennia Mary Wiles played the good guy. Stay on the path and all would be well. But now that she has long strayed from the path to heaven there is nothing stopping her from hunting down those who hurt her and her friends.

Now to save a fellow angel, Mary will have to break all the rules. Unfortunately, that means asking for help from a half-demon she had once called friend.

To find what was lost, Mary will have to help a demon lord cross over to the human plane. But the closer she gets to completing her task the deeper she gets entangled by their lies. Soon, Mary realizes that not even angels can stave off the fires of hell forever.

Are you truthful? Mary can find out.

So Mary is not only a fallen angel but in Hell they cut off her wings. She is now in a permanent quest to find her wings and also her old Captain, Ramiel, who she is convinced was also kidnapped by demons.

In the meantime, using her human form she needs to make a living as she is no longer welcome in Heaven – at least until she can get her wings back and then we shall see.

It turns out Mary is really good at exorcism and divining from people’s auras if they are good or bad and truthful or not. She has thus set up shop with a young assistant as sort of sleuth.

Not the most riveting of tales and as alternate universes go, not exciting.
