Blog Tour: The Devil's Wife

Dark Urban Fantasy

Date Published: March 2011

“Sit down and open your mind. Everyone knows ‘Devil’ means ‘Darkness’ and ‘God’ means ‘Light’. “But history is always written by the winning side.”

Lucifer Morningstar is a law-abiding, upstanding gentleman of New York City.
Lucifer Morningstar is the Devil.

The owner of powerful magic, Lucifer could have the world at his feet, if not for his apathy and loneliness. Deprived of the ability to understand the emotions of others and his power depleted, Lucifer is no longer able to help even his houseplants.

But there’s a problem with God’s plan to eliminate the Devil forever: Lucifer is fighting Her more than he ever did. He’s found a reason to survive, someone to stand by him through the rough and smooth of his life.

He’s found a new wife.

Clarissa Avario opens Lucifer’s eyes to the darkest side of the real world, full of paedophiles, murderers, rapists and thieves.

Can Clarissa convince Lucifer to do more than stand back and watch the city fall apart? The Devil will do anything to fix Clarissa’s world, including take on Heaven.
And he will kill anything, God, Demon or Angel, that gets in his way.

An author living in Canberra, Australia, Holly Hunt writes a collection of works including Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror and Romance. Currently undergoing an apprenticeship in Butchery, Holly spends her days off writing and watching superhero cartoons.

My Review: 

I sat down to read this with an open mind. I like new takes on well known subjects and what's more well known Lucifer? The character is definitely a familiar one, and I have to applaud Holly Hunt for trying to do new things with him. I liked the idea of this book VERY MUCH. Giving Lucifer a bit of a human feel makes him more relate-able. Holly does in fact make him less of a fictional religious figure and more of a man.

Clarissa for some reason never really made a connection with me for some reason. I am not able to pin point it exactly, but I think maybe at times it seems her character flip flops. She seems very strong and able one minute then comes across as weak the next.

All in all this was a good story with a great backbone, just a few tiny things that didn't click with me. I really liked what Holly Hunt did with Lucifer and look forward to seeing what else she has in store for us.
