Life is hard when you got red skin, scimitar-shaped horns, and twitter labels you as a Section 8 archangel. Life is even harder when your psychotherapist dismisses the choir of angels fluttering outside your gate as a form of psychotic depression.
When divine judgment wears a tailored suit and leads an army of winged humans, Narvix's mundane life of retro PC gaming and afternoon snoozes during fourth-period calculus erupts into a roller coaster of dodging lightning bolts, facing a flaming woman, and preventing genocide from reaching his street address.

While I was not securely drawn in at first Maxwell created enough of a bite to not lose your attention completely. That’s most likely thanks to our lead character Narvix. You see Narvix is your average moody teenager who just happens to have red skin and horns living in New Jersey with his adoptive family. A curious setting indeed. As you read further that tasty nibble leads you to a nice big buffet of story-telling. Navix's world erupts into chaos, and Maxwell takes the reader along with him.
Maxwell's writing is strong, along with his character development. The dialogue is sharp and witty. Maxwell's description, skills though were a bit overworked which made me think this book is more suited to be a comic book than a book. This is due to his embellished descriptive scenes of actions, sights, and people. It's how I envisioned the whole book. This book would really kick-ass if it was a comic. Overall Maxwell is onto a nice start.
