Long ago, a wealthy man stole an angel and hid her in a chapel, where she remains imprisoned to this day. That's the legend, anyway.

This will give readers plenty to chew on. — Publishers Weekly

Despite its interesting premise and excellent writing, Pulling the Wings Off Angels ultimately fails to deliver on its promise to present a compelling theological paradox. — Grimdark Magazine

Suffice it to say, Pulling The Wings Off Angels delivers twists, intriguing thoughts, and solid pacing. I admit I didn't enjoy it as much as Salonimus' stories, but it's still worth a shot. — Fantasy Book Critic

At just 138 pages, this packs a surprising amount of plot in amongst its philosophical mutterings. “Parker”’s usual protagonist makes the best of the usual bad situation, albeit by a little less of his own volition. It’s fun enough for what’s essentially just Parker working out a Theology 101 discussion group.

The bookshop blurb makes a reference to The Good Place. Forgive my ignorance, but does the author have any kind of connection to that show or is it just the publisher trying to market the book to the show's fans?

No connection. It's just in that same sort of philosophy-thought-experiment-with-jokes bucket.
