Qaphsiel the angel stands on a mountain prepared to wipe out the remnants of humanity in the aftermath of the biblical flood. Only problem? He lost the box. While he spends thousands of years searching for it, Coop enters the scene. Coop is a master thief with a unique ability. Magic doesn’t affect him, and in a world populated by magic, werewolves, and other supernatural beasties, that is a highly sought after ability. Coop finds himself forced to steal the box repeatedly while dodging dodgy cults, undead government agents, and a hapless angel.

The Everything Box by Richard Kadrey is the first in a new series. Kadrey’s previous series, the Sandman Slim novels, is a popular urban fantasy with a dark anti-hero. This one, however, is just plain fun. Offbeat and whimsical, the apocalypse never seemed so gut-bustingly funny. Qaphsiel’s inability to wipe out humanity, Coop’s scathing wit, and sundry other character tics make for a stellar read. The pacing is fast, the dialogue quippy, and the characters are larger than life. The Everything Box is a fantastic read and a hell of a start to this series.
