No Angel by Theresa Sneed is a vivid story with a large dose of Lehi's Dream and a bit of Dante's Inferno thrown into the mix. This novel provides a somewhat irreverent look at our pre-mortal, mortal and post-mortal existence.

No Angel by Theresa Sneed is a fun fast read. I had a hard time putting it down.
Jonathan Stewart is assigned to be a guardian angel for a baby girl, marked for early death. He reluctantly accepts the assignment, thinking it will be short term. Jonathan is surly, arrogant and certainly reluctant to learn from the other guardian angels also assigned to the family. As time goes on and Jonathan's back story starts to be revealed, I started having warm fuzzy feelings towards him.
A trip to the underworld, and being separated from the child he is guardian for, teaches him a lot about trusting in God, praying, love and duty.
I liked the idea that we all have guardian angels assigned to us throughout our lives, to help and encourage us.
I would recommend this book to everyone, LDS and Non LDS alike.

No Angel by Theresa Sneed joined the list of books I've read that kept me up through the night to finish. Following the life of a Guardian Angel, you get an interesting view of mortality - the effect of the choices we make which enables who has a closer access to us for promptings - the "good" or "bad" angels - and also that progression continues beyond the grave as you watch Jonathan continue to grow as he fulfills his responsibility as a Guardian Angel. There is a good mix of humor and interesting characters along the way to make No Angel a book to definitely add to you reading list. Read my full review at http://tinyurl.com/BT-NoAngel
