I loved the first book in this series, the 2nd wasn't quite as good, but still very good. This however was a bit of a letdown. Not nearly as sexy and charming as the other books, which I suppose is fair enough given that Lucifer is now a lot older.
Although some of the loss of charm and sexiness can be attributed to Lucifer aging, I feel that Gatiss' writing just isn't up to scratch in this one. It's not as exciting, and the story seems to pass far too quickly, with not much happening.
However, it is a good read and doesn't take long to finish. It is still pretty enjoyable, but no where near as good as the first (or second).
But I love the cheeky little ending. It put a big smile on my face! It's worth reading just for that!
