Eve has an arrangement with the fates; she serves six months as an angel and then gets to spend six months "off" as an ordinary ghost. She's supposed to be leaving on her vacation when they call her in to deal with a djinn uprising. Eve's getting tired of being expected to break the rules but then punished for it, and decides that she is going to get herself fired.
I know it's not fair to compare a novella against a full novel, but the bits of this book that seemed abbreviated were not the ones that one would expect. Summoning rituals aren't actually shown. Fights are glossed over. I can't help but think of the Pax Arcana short stories, which are much shorter, and yet which feel less condensed. Angelic was a decent way to spend half an hour, but it's short on action and doesn't advance the series, either, not that I'm sure I would want anything with major repercussions to happen in a limited run novella. It does clarify Eve's relationship to the Fates a bit. I don't regret reading it but I won't be buying it, even the more reasonably priced ebook, because I don't expect I'll feel the need to read it on subsequent series rereads.
