Hi, I’m Muriel, the only white sheep in a sea of black ones, and a virgin to boot. I am determined to wait for love, but my dad, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. I’m hoping the hunk that I met in my bar will turn out to be the one–just looking at him makes my insides melt like marshmallows over the coals of hell, but trusting is hard when it seems everyone I get close to ends up trying to kill me.
Not only am I dealing with an extreme case of lust, there’s a new threat in hell, one my dad says to ignore. Something easier said than done since it seems everywhere I turn demons are trying to kill me. But I’m okay with that, because one thing I’ve learned being a princess of hell is that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around a bit.
A rebellion in hell, demon assassins and scorching kisses, could my life get any more interesting?
Since these books are novellas, and must be read back to back to really appreciate them, I decided to review them as a series.
Eve Langlais have created an interesting world, both when it comes to Hell, Heaven and Earth. It was interesting to see the differences between Hell and Earth, and how it was decided how you ended up in Hell or Heaven. I really loved the judgement part of Hell. Since it felt right. It was interesting to find out more about the world as the series progressed.
The characters were entertaining, and I loved to see how the relationship between Muriel and Auric survived the various surprises life threw at them. It was also interesting to see the tender relationship between Muriel and her family, with the exception of her mother with Muriel wasn’t fond off. ( With reasons, I might add.)
I also liked the secondary characters. It was fascinating to see how their importance changed through the books, and how they might be really important later on in the series.
The plot was fast paced and engaging. I enjoyed reading about their adventures in Hell, first while squashing the rebellion and in the later books while they dealt with the aftermath of the events in the first book. I really liked how the books built on each other, and how even the smallest detail might matter in the latter books. But as I read the series, I started to wish they had been longer. It wasn’t as obvious in book 1 and 2, as it was in book 3. In book 3, it felt as if the romance was skimped on to propel the action part forward and wrap up all the loose threads. Maybe part of my issues stems from the fact that they had a lot of sex. I can understand why they had it, since Muriel’s magic required it. But I really wish the author had cut a back a bit on the sex and instead had let Muriel and her men form a deeper relationship.
