His name is Lucifer, and my word what a complex character he is, dare I say I am as taken with him as I was with Asmodeus, anyone would think I like a bad boy and to clarify: I am a sucker for them! Despite the fact that he has carried out some horrific things in this series there has always been an undercurrent of, more with the Devil, Felicity has had this character on a slow burn for most of this series, slightly seasoning him with each book and finally serving us with this delicious main course of mouth watering, messed up Mancandy. I liked Nina a lot, I think they balance each other perfectly and if she hadn't been messed up too she never would have picked up on the signals and given Lucifer the chance he deserved. And yes the Devil deserved a chance.
I love it when there are large sections of Felicity's stories set in Hell because there are no boundaries of reality to conform to and if anyone can conjure up a fictional location and make you feel like you are there and it's all totally normal, it's Felicity. Fight scenes are an expectation from her books and the Devil was sure to fulfil that for me and like I say, without the boundaries of reality they are pretty damn epic.
I am so pleased that we had a book focused on the Devil's story, it felt wrong to move on to the next arc of the storyline (Angels of the Apocalypse) without his story. The momentum for Angels of the Apocalypse has been building in the Her Angel series and I cannot wait for it.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Cast out of Heaven and now the king of Hell, Lucifer is a powerful fallen angel warrior with a heart as cold as ice and soul as black as the bottomless pit. For millennia, he has ruled his realm with an iron fist as he plots the demise of his ancient enemies. When one of those enemies dumps an unconscious mortal female in the courtyard of his fortress and leaves her there, Lucifer finds himself entranced by the beguiling beauty and tempted beyond all reason. But is the enchanting Nina an innocent pawn in the eternal game or part of a plot against him?
