This book is very different from any angel and demon book I have read. The story is centered on the lives of the guardian angels and the demons known as "Sheydims" in this novel. I loved the perspective that we were given on how people's guardian's angels are chosen. I also loved how Heaven was portrayed. It was also equally interesting to see how "hell"; the underworld, where the Sheydim lived, was portrayed. Let's just say, I don't want to end up there!
The main character, Jonathan Stewart, is quite the odd guardian angel. He doesn't want to do this job and so he chooses someone, Celeste with EMD status, who is supposed to have a short life span on earth and will be marked for an early death. Jonathan is not a pleasant angel and he hates Earth. His earthly experience had not been a good one as a human, so he doesn't want to go back at all. Nothing really goes well for Jonathan in this book until he starts changing his bad attitude about everything. Celeste teases him about being "The Grinch".
Let me tell you, there is A LOT that happens in this book. You will see humor, happy things, scary things (The Sheydim are just down right creepy), and also some very tense moments. There is something that happens at the very end that brought me to tears and left me feeling so good about myself and life in general. It happens in the last two pages, so when you read there, you will know exactly what I mean.
No Angel will keep you reading and not wanting any interruptions. Theresa does a wonderful job teaching many life lessons, without beating you over the head. Learning to love and to accept love, was my favorite theme. If you have an open heart, you will be greatly enriched by reading No Angel.
