Blog Tour: The Devil's Wife by Holly Hunt


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.


My Review:

First of all, forget everything you think you know about the Devil, Holly Hunt has twisted things in a way that is so imaginative.

When this novel is described as Dark Urban Fantasy, that is not a typo, there were definitely darker/grittier elements to this story. Often times I found myself balking at the treatment of these women, but we are reading about the devil here, so you have to keep that in mind.

Don't think your going to get a fluffy romance, this book has bite!
