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!Read more ›
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.
The book is about Satanism, greed power and lust . All taking place in a small town and all by 'supposedly' responsible
citizens. Most holding prominent jobs. It's a gripping, if unpleasant read at times, and makes you wonder if these things could
happen in your own neighbourhood.
It lives up to Nora Roberts usual gift of story telling and I give it full marks
