AUC amazon


An Ungodly Child follows Harold Waterman, an unlikely hero, and his summoned demonic familiar Jasfoup. When Harold is infected by an incurable disease after meeting the Angel of Pestilence, otherwise known as Jedith, he turns to the black arts to find a cure. Jasfoup the demon is only too happy to help, as long as Harold can pay for his services. Meanwhile, the three angels of destruction are out to prove that there could be an antichrist, if only Harold would believe it. Gillian, Harold's vampire girlfriend, is not so sure.

    leatherdykeuk You're reading me?
    How super -- and in the same list as Kim Harrison - I'm honoured!

    sttatus_quo If the first 20 pages are any indication, I'd say you're in the company of peers. I want a day when I don't have to get up early the next day so I can read it cover to cover if I want to. (which I suspect I will).

    Alysa Thomas:
    I was initially skeptical about reading a book set in modern day, with vampires, demons, angels, fairies and the unlikely hero of Harold. Once I got over my pretentiousness, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found myself wanting to discover more about the character and his life. Green has thought in depth about all of the creatures in the book, and also how most of the populous of Laverstone have got by without noticing the supernatural. I will issue readers a single warning: Do not get too hung up with the first chapter. I had no idea what was going on, and where it fit in to the rest of the book until I had read at least 5 or 6 chapters. It does fit in, it is important, but does give a slightly jumbled start to the book. Stick with it, it more than makes up for it! I would recommend it to anyone wanting a light-hearted read that is funny, deep, and worthy of your time. A great debut novel.

Harold and Jasfoup...
...are now on video?



And again, I'm so very, very, very proud of you, my dear. *big smile*

Ah, and over here on, this book is out of stock right now. And they aren't sure when more of the books will be available.

But I'm hoping after the new year that this will soon change. *big big smile*

Hugs, lovies, and stuffs for you all. *HG*

God bless and take care. :).

I bought your book on Karen (conphie's) recomedation and I couldn't put it down. I thought it was original, funny and had a wonderfully British air about it :)

Do me a favor if you will and link me to that poem I said I'd post. I'm guessing it's been long enough, and I'm friends only now anyway. I'd like to do it later today with your permission.
