REVIEW: “Saving Sam” by Nikka Michaels



Ezekiel has been a Watcher angel for thousands of years, and now he wants a promotion to Guardian status. When he shows up for a meeting at Purgatory, Inc. Zeke gets the shock of his lifetime when his boss and Higher Power commands him to bring back Azazel, Death’s assistant.

Throw in the devil, a possible apocalypse, and a partner in archangel Sam and Zeke might get more than just his Guardian angel wings.


This short story is mindless entertainment – and I mean that statement in a POSITIVE way. Look, sometimes, I need a story that is not too heavy, not too serious … a story that’s just cheeky & fun, that can make me chuckle or giggle along the way. Saving Sam is exactly that.

The plot is exactly what is written in the book summary – but the idea of God being a Hippie, and Lucifer is in female form called Lucy, as well as quite a number of wonderful one-liners and banter exchanged between Zeke and Samael were amusing. There were some sexy times though — even if the reason for Zeke and Sam having sex was, well, a bit on the silly side (but it matched the tone, so I wasn’t exactly complaining *haha*). I couldn’t help enjoying the world that Nikka Michaels created here.

I was a bit annoyed with the ‘twist’ in the end though – I thought it was a rather cruel thing to do to Zeke. No matter what the reasons, I would throw tantrums!!

Bottom line, if you want something fun in between, this could be an option.

About Ami

My name is Ami and I'm an Indonesian girl in my mid 30's, living in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. I used to do a lot of journal writing in a different website but over the years, I started to lose interest. I am, instead, pretty active in reading and writing opinion in Goodreads. Then I start thinking that maybe I can have a blog in which I write mostly about books or joy of reading or anything related to reading activity, really. So this is what this blog is for ... although, I may be inspired to write off-books topic as well :)
