I may be a man, and not just a man, but a preacher man, but even I like to step off the pulpit, loosen my cassock, pour myself some non-consecrated wine, and temporarily trade in one book about good, evil, lust and the supernatural for another, but set in modern-day New York.
The third in Christine Warren's Other series, "The Demon You Know" follows the nondescript and somewhat bland Abby Baker as she follows a hot lead that leads to an even hotter conflict between the Others, supernatural beings from the demon world with the power to save or destroy humanity. I, of course, am also out to save humanity, but not from demons. Unless you mean personal demons, but not a literal personal demon, like Lou, who possesses Abby to hide from Rule, another, powerful demon who is hunting him. I mean demons like addiction and moral weakness, not demons from supernatural realms who possess you and make you do crazy things that would normally be some kind of venial sin if they weren't so fun. Lou holds the key to humankind's destruction, and Rule must somehow stop him while keeping Abby, a mortal whom Rule has become attracted to, safe.
Abby begins the book as one kind of young woman, but as she becomes possessed by both a demon his lusty ways, turns into another kind of young woman. The kind of young woman I am usually warning about in life but rooting for in fiction. Better though, to live out ones desires to experience demon love in a book than to do so in real life, which I hear is frowned upon by my superiors.
You will not be frowning, however, after reading Christine Warren's latest provocative, witty and thrilling novel that will leave you wishing you could blame your own uninhibited, wild, and slightly risque behavior on, dare I say it, the demon you know.
