The Angels Jest: Riddle of the Cherubs by John F. Wilkie is about a down-on-his-luck guy named Jay. Jay is unlucky when it comes to relationships. After finally removing himself from an unhealthy relationship with his redheaded demon ex-girlfriend, Nancy, he gets himself a job in an effort to pull himself out of a rut. One day, he goes into a small joint and meets the pretty server, Astra. Little does he know the impact this star will leave on his heart or how his life will take a strange turn shortly afterward.

John F. Wilkie leads us through a paranormal story with a dash of romance. The book focuses heavily on Jay as he goes through life one step at a time. He is not having an easy time after breaking it off with his ex-girlfriend Nancy, who had a devastating drug habit. He did not even have a place to stay. Though he is clearly tired of his situation, I admired the fact that, although he has been pushed down so many times by life and bad circumstances, he still keeps trying to get up again. I had hoped that when he met Astra and discovered his strange abilities that maybe things would take a turn for a better and I was glad to see that it did get better for a bit. I was a bit sad about how it ended though. Still, I understand that this is how life goes sometimes. Nothing is ever set in stone. I know it ended in a somewhat sad note but I truly wish the best for Jay. Overall, I found The Angels Jest: Riddle of the Cherubs to be an interesting and fast-paced read.
