A Light and Fun Read
on 19 April 2012
Imagine one day you have a normal hectic life of a thirty something, and then the next day you are involved in an accident and wake up in Hell. Well this is what happens to Lilith Straight. Upon her arrival in Hell Lilith finds out she is bound by a past generations bargain with the devil. This bargain is that it makes all female descendants a succubus. They have to use their charm and inner demon to do tasks. . There is only one descendant at a time who has to become a succubus, so when Lilith's mother Carrie passes away the role is then passed on to Lilith. Lilith is taken to the office of Miss Spry, who is the evil antagonist. Miss Spry is very much like the office boss with a demonic kick.
This is a fun and light read, I also really liked the feel and tempo of this book. It's very much tongue in cheek and at times can be quite humorous. There is a bit of romance in the book but not too much to make it all mushy and gooey. Some really good characters, I really liked Lilith, Miss Spry and Mr Clarke, they really were good. I hope I see more of them in book two.
The main character Lilith is very likeable. There are many things I could relate to her with. Her life is very complex and she is certainly a walking disaster. But nevertheless you can really sympathise with the poor lady, at times most normal people would have been ripping their hair out. You can see that she really adores her daughter Grace. It's not easy working on behalf of the devil and keeping a family going.
The main reason I didn't give this book a 5 star rating was the fact that I could put it down, I know when a book is 5 star as I can't eat or sleep for wanting to read it. This was missing for me. All the correct components were there, but it just missed out on a top rating.
Would I read more books by this author, yes I would! Her writing style is very relaxed and easy going.
