Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse by Nina Post

Kelly's job is to kill monsters.  She does it mostly because they killed her mother when she was small, but it's also fun for her to do.  There are a lot of them in the world she lives in, so you'd think her job would be secure.  She doesn't want to hunt vampires, though, so that cuts back a bit on her income.

Curiosity Quills Press and Net Galley allowed me to download a copy of this ebook for review (thank you).  It's been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

I enjoyed this read.  It's a wild ride in world that is totally out of control with paranormal creatures.  I once saw a movie called the Fifth Element and this story reminded me of that.  I bought the movie if that tells you anything.  I'll be buying this book, too.

Kelly is supposed to be looking for a rogue angel and sucking him up in a test tube.  It begins to get confusing when she's finding all kinds of angels to remove from the building but seems not to find the one she's looking for.

She dresses in different disguises to visit the building and do her searches.  She develops a crush on an angel in the building.  The angels' condo board considers getting pizza delivered its biggest problem (someone keeps eating the pizza delivery guy).  And the guy she's working for is actually her biggest enemy.  Other than that, everything is normal.  The sad part is that in this world, that's true!

It's a busy story that's a bit silly, has some humorous spots, and keeps you glued to the pages.  Why not visit this out of this world place and see if you think you could manage as well as Kelly?

Happy reading.
