KIRKUS REVIEW

Noah Sark is on assignment, for Heaven’s sake! Showing up in the men’s restroom at Angelo’s All-Day All-Nite Donut Emporium in Las Vegas, Noah is a lesser Angel assigned to protect The Girl, but he doesn’t know from what. The girl is Barbra DeMarco, who looks a lot like Princess Diana, whom Noah failed to protect on a previous mission. Noah spends a few hours with Barbra and her boyfriend Andy on the Strip, encountering Elvis impersonators, exploding volcanoes and sinking pirate ships, and readers will follow along, eager to find out just how Noah will save Barbra. An Angel on assignment in Sin City is a delicious premise carried off with humor and verve, though the relentless first-angel point of view becomes claustrophobic, and for a being old enough to long for the good old biblical times when miracles were simpler to pull off, Noah never seems especially wise or knowing. Still, it’s a spirited story, and readers will look forward to the likely sequels. (Fantasy. 11 & up)
