Due to Logan Quinn’s escape from hell, the apocalypse on Earth is imminent. He’s accused of opening a portal that will let all hell-bound creatures enter the world of the living. Two angels in earthly bodies, Joseph and Gertrude, try to get the location of the portal from Logan, who’s uncooperative since they also want to put him back in hell. Meanwhile, Sofia Winters is a young aspiring artist who doesn’t realize that her bloodline caused the dark forces to seek her out. When she crosses path with Logan, her life is quickly turned upside down and both of them struggle to survive the demons.

Wishing Well (The Rikir Series, Book One) by Angelica Nicole is an imaginative supernatural YA novel that takes on the theme of heaven and hell. I like the antagonism between Logan and Gertrude. It’s intense and nerve-racking, but funny at the same time. Logan’s tendency to rile Joseph and Gertrude make it hard for me to fully root for him at times. That said, his actions are understandable and the angels are not exactly angelic, particularly Gertrude. The flashbacks are well done and give depth to Logan’s background and character development. The other protagonist, Sofia, is easily likable, including her cousin Alexa. The plot is moderately paced and there are enough action scenes to give the story a suspenseful element. Angelica Nicole’s Wishing Well is a good start for The Rikir Series.
