This month was a lot of things behind the scenes for me, not all of them good. Because of that, this is going to be an incredibly short post. In fact, it’s going to cover a single book. You see, I didn’t have a lot of spare time – or mental space – to dedicate to reading. So, here’s that one book that I managed to finish in August.
But first, obligatory pictures of Yzma:

Archangel Errant by Elizabeth Corrigan:
Gabriel didn’t expect his return to Heaven to be filled with trumpets and celebration, but he thought he would do more than sit at Michael’s side, listening to endless catalogs of unfulfilled prayers. He’s tried blending into every aspect of Heavenly life, but he can’t help but feel that the constantly praying Faithful and flower-dispensing Handmaidens lack the motivation to do any true good in the world. Some days, he longs for nothing more than to return to Earth and tell his beloved Cassia how he feels about her.
When Heaven is suddenly attacked, all the angels become trapped in their own nightmares. With Michael gone on an angelic mission, Gabriel must rally the remaining seraphim to rouse the sleeping angels and discover who seeks to take the agents of Heaven out of the celestial battle. All fingers point to Bedlam, but Gabriel can’t believe the ex-demon would threaten his salvation so soon after gaining it.
With few people he trusts, Gabriel must rely on all the lessons he learned on Earth to save Heaven, Bedlam, and maybe even himself.
I truly enjoy this series. Every second I spend in this world is another second spent with characters that feel real in a world that feel like it’s taking shape around me me. Michael has a lot on his shoulders, but he’s finally starting to realize that maybe – just maybe – there are others around him that might be able to help.
Gabriel might have been missing for a couple of years – okay, more than a few – but his return to Heaven isn’t everything he expects it to be. Trying to find your purpose away from those you’ve been trying your entire existence to save can’t be easy. But he’s willing to try. And that’s more than a lot of other beings are willing to do.
That’s it, that’s the entire post. I told you I didn’t get a lot of reading done in August. Thankfully, I got a little bit more done as the year came to a close.
This month was a hard one, behind the scenes. A lot of life changes happened, and my reading took a hit. But that’s okay. Life takes precedence sometimes.
