Product description

Review

"To The Devil - A Diva! is a dark and exciting novel about a low-budget 60's and 70's horror film star who doesn't seem to age... because she sold her soul to the devil at the age of ten! In the present day, her resources are drying up, so she returns to the north of England to appear in "Menswear," a risque British TV soap opera. But the current star of "Menswear" is furious to learn of his new co-star, and fears that she has come to steal his soul. Darkness is brewing, and devilish secrets are about to boil over in this thrilling and suspenseful novel of hidden evil and a flair for the dramatic." -- MidWest Book Review

Format: Paperback
I read this book after Never the Bride and reread it some time after Something Borrowed. What a great discovery for any avid readers of Magrs' unique blending of tablecloths and macabre in Whitby. I had forgotten that Henry Cleavis gets a preview here and it is now essential back story to the forthcoming Hell's Belles. Karla Sorenson belongs right in there with Brenda, Effie (not the ones in Diva), Mrs Claus, the Manchus and the whole shebang of what's about to happen in Whitby this coming November. Grotesque and hilarious--especially the scene between Fox Soames and his Mum. I wonder who else may appear...

I count myself extremely lucky to have 'discovered' this Author, truly original, none of that standard, formulaic predictability that you sometimes get, even with good books and authors, all 4 books I have read so far are little gems of originality and just draw you in, I could not put it down until it was finished and then I went online to order the next one, a brilliant book, buy it, you will love it!

I read this book after I read the second Brenda and Effie book. I re-read the book after I had read Hells Belles, because I recognised the main characher of Karla Sorensen. The story revolves round a has been horror film star and her mysterious past. The story is quick moving, gothic and laugh out loud funny and I like the fact it is set in Manchester. Also running through the story is a touching love story between Lance and Colin. Brilliant as always.

I am a huge fan of Paul Magrs and enjoyed all the Brenda and Effie series, so I thought I would try some of his other titles and started with this one. It started off rather well and I enjoyed the early part of the book, with the young Sally and Katy being evacuated during the war, but after that for me the book content went downhill. I thought the story was all over the place and seemed to be fragmented. It seemed to lack any loveable characters. Although I finished the book, I was left thinking "what was that about" and I was left feeling disappointed. It is certainly not in the league of the Brenda and Effie series so if you want something along those lines I would give this one a wide berth..

I wasn't sure about reading this book given the mixed reviews, however I'm a huge fan of the Brenda & Effie series and wanted more so I decided to give it a whirl. There are a few errors in other reviews so I'd like to clarify: the only characters here from 'Brenda & Effie' are Karla, Fox & Magda Soames and Henry Cleavis (briefly and let's say surprisingly!). As to the chronology of the book, well I think this is probably meant to have taken place before Karla's visit to Whitby.
Overall this is an entertaining book. Some good new characters show up who I wouldn't mind hearing more of and the author's writing style doesn't change from the Whitby books. Yes there is some gay sexual content but this is brief and hardly shocking and is relevant to the plot (you could easily skip a few lines if it's not your thing). Although you could read this book without reading the Whitby series, for fellow B&E fans it's a must read as we discover the back stories of Karla, Fox and Magda (and it's hot stuff!).
I've only given 4 stars as the book does sometimes feel like missing chapters from the Whitby books reworked into a novel, and the plot itself is quite sparse when you look
back at it. However the book is still well worth reading; it held my interest throughout, it added to my enjoyment of the Whitby novels and I'm glad I gave it a go.
