The Book of Bart #WeWriWa #8Sunday #YA #paranorma / by Ryan Hill

Here's an except from my debut YA Paranormal novel The Book of Bart.

Only one thing is so powerful, so dangerous that Heaven and Hell must work together to find it: the Shard of Gabriel.

With a mysterious Black Cloud of Death hot on the shard’s trail, a desperate Heaven enlists the help of Bart, a demon who knows more about the shard than almost anyone. Six years ago, he had it in his hands. If only he’d used it before his coup to overthrow the devil failed. Now, he’s been sprung from his eternal punishment to help Samantha, an angel in training, recover the shard before the Black Cloud of Death finds it.

If Bartholomew wants to succeed, he’ll have to fight the temptation to betray Samantha and the allure of the shard. After an existence full of evil, the only way Bart can get right with Hell is to be good.

All the time I’d put in should’ve counted for something. In the end, I was seemingly no better than common street trash. Getting thrown back to Earth without a reason or goodbye felt bad enough. I didn’t even get a pack of smokes and some walking cash. It was the disrespect that hurt the most. This place sucked. I wanted to go back to Hell.

A demon like myself deserved better.

The Book of Bart is out now, and $0.99 through Monday on Amazon!
