Synopsis: Off of Goodreads
Save me from the darkness. It's been two months. Two moths since Gabrielle survived the horror that was Samhain. Two months since she slipped from the devil's clutches. Two months since she learned that she might have to face him again. Her nights are plagued by dreams of him, and she wakes to find she's creeping closer to that unholy reunion. Sp when a ritualistic murder occurs on a ley line in Romania and Gabrielle is called in to investigate, it seems like a harbinger of things to come. Angelic victims, a killer that smells like ash and roses, and wounds that speak of pagan sacraments- it should be enough evidence for Gabrielle to solve the case and get back to her winter break. But the clues keep slipping through her fingers:; someone is always one step ahead. In the same city, Andre De Leon, king of the vampires, stands trial for the massacre at Bishopcourt, and his coven's justice system is infamous for its cruelty. Up until now he's been able to shield Gabrielle from their brutality, but her nearness makes her vulnerable to their wrath, and they will use her to get to Andre. A killer, a vampire trial, the devil all in the same city. It's too coincidental, which is to say that it is not a coincidence at all. Fate has betrayed her.
Rating: 4.5 stars
Review: So the devil is back again to claim his consort. My problem with the devil is that I make him look like Gabriel Macht. Don’t know who that is well here you go. The guy is gorgeous but for some reason I keep picturing him as the devil.
Even in The Devil’s Payer this is who I pictured. I think the reason my brain chooses to picture him is that 1. he’s gorgeous 2.he looks great in a fedora and a suit and 3. I think the devil should be the picture of tempting. This man is temptation at the finest.
There were little details that for me reminded me of Greek Mythology. More specific Persephone and Hades. Such as the letter she got from her old nanny who is one of the three fates.
Daughter of wheat and grain, Betrothed to soil and stain, Your lifeblood drips, The scales tip, But will it be in vain?
Then on page 211 we finally get the story of Persephone and Hades. Persephone the daughter to Demeter. Demeter is the goddess of harvest and grains. Hades fell in love with Persephone. He then kidnapped her and brought her to the underworld and be his queen. I was a happy person when this happened.
I think I fell in love with Oliver even more. He is the best comic relief I’ve read about in a while.
BBFs. Best bitches forever.
“I’m starting to think our classicist textbook was right-fairies are enjoying evil little creatures.””Says the girl with the fangs.”
The ending. Man the ending had me. I was on edge. I can’t wait to have the next one in my hands.
