Book Review: The Codex by Joe Duck

The Codex

by Joe Duck





When an ancient book capable of summoning a demon is stolen from heaven, Narius, a young and not so bright angel of knowledge, is cast down and ordered to destroy it.

If he fails, he can never return to his blissful life as a lazy library guard.

Fortunately, to aid him in his quest, Narius is accompanied by the Codex, a theoretically holy book, who sprouts terrible courtship advice like a cheap fortune cookie.

Upon arrival to the world below his, Narius is tricked into helping Emily, a greedy sorceress in a bit of a pickle, trying to deal with a hungry dragon.

Together, the human and the angel must overcome enchanted apples, evil elves and the impoverished dragon or risk watching their world burn.

Review:




I officially have to say that this book was one of the funniest books I have ever read. Not because of the plot or what happens. But because of the character. This first chapter had me laughing and falling in love. I want to rant and rave about this story with you but I don't want to give spoilers. I would recommend this book to my friends and fellow reviews. I have a new respect for an author that can make me laugh with just a couple of words.
