Format: Paperback
Just incase anyone rushes out to buy a copy of this, you should be aware that despite a spiffy new cover Divine Evil is an older Nora Roberts title. Looking on Divine Evil in the grand context of Nora Robert's stand alone titles it falls neatly into place as one of her earlier romantic suspenses with some paranormal twists.

Clare Kimball is a leading sculptress who witnessed a terrible event as a child, that haunts her memories and ultimately forces her to leave her New York apartment and return to her sleepy home town. Divine Evil contained stronger themes than normal in a Roberts title: there's rape, murder, sacrifices and satanic worship but there is also a generous dollop of romance for her romantic fanbase.

Divine Evil is similar to other Roberts titles that involve an artistic heroine who is as emotionally fragile as she is gifted and tough, off the top of my head I can think of two literary siblings to both Divine Evil and Clare: Carnal Innocence,and Carolina Moon. The trouble with Divine Evil is that although it has obviously been well-researched in terms of satanism and the rituals it feels oddly unfinished.

Claire upon moving to Emmitsboro begins to relive a nightmare from when she was five years old of sneaking into the back of her father's truck and following him to the woods where she sees strange men dressed in animal masks rape a woman and perform a satanic ritual. However, until nearly midway through the novel, we are never exactly clear if Clare realises that this was more than a dream, and despite a rash of similar satanic themed killings she fails to put together clues that even Scooby Doo wouldn't miss!

I tend to read Nora Roberts as brain candy, and I do like her style, even if the formula of "strong-but-vulnerable-woman with mystery past meets man who will solve all problems if they work together (and have lots of sex)" can get a little dull. This one is as well-constructed as the others but has satanism and black masses and murders and was a bit.. lame, to be honest, not one of her best and reminded me too much of other ones with an artist-heroine and a cop-hero and a smalltown mystery and.. meh. I came away from the book feeling uncomfortable and dissatisfied and wishing I'd not read it. Avoid.

I love Nora Roberts and usually enjoy the mix of the fantasy and the contemporary romance genre.
Liked the characters and enjoyed the romance but found it hard to suspend my disbelief when it got to the Satanism and devil worship...
The "evil" characters were stereotypical as was the ending but the relationship between the central characters is well developed and something to smile at. Worth reading and will probably appeal to lots of other readers.

Writing is up to Robert's usual standard- however I don't think gang rape of under age girls is entertainment so wasn't really impressed to read about this and other rapes/murder described in such gory detail!I threw the book away.

This is N. Roberts at her best ... I am only half-way through this but her special blend of mystery and romance is brilliant and evident throughout. Although, is it just me or is this one darker than most others I've read? For the first time whilst reading a Nora Roberts novel I am slightly disturbed at some of the themes running through, like satan-worship and rape ... hmm. Not sure yet whether I like that! But all in all, a good read so far ...

I really enjoyed this book, in fact read it twice once after the other to make certain I hadn't missed anything. Just the right amount of creepiness to make you keep on reading until the end. Thank goodness for Nora Roberts.

I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts/ J D Robb and when I saw this novel I bought it expecting great things. Unfortunately I was badly disappointed. I feel bad saying this as NR especially when she is writing as JD Robbs is one of my favourite writers.

It feels slightly laboured and contrived. I had (for the first time in a NR book) absolutely no sympathy with any of the characters.

I'm going to put it down to being the one in a million that wasn't for me - afterall with a writer as prolific as NR to find only one that didn't agree with me says a lot.
