Thanks for Herding Cats & Burning Soup for hosting this awesome hop!
Strong heroines are my FAVORITE reads! Asking me to pick my favorite is kind of like asking my favorite kid or ice-cream so….. I will tell you about the latest I read.
I found this book through the grapevine and I was excited that it was an Indie Urban Fantasy author. I’m always hesitant because urban fantasy is my favorite genre and it is hit or miss but I figured it was only $.99 so what did I have to lose? Just a little time.
HOLY CRAP. I am now stalking HD Smith. Dark Hope (The Devil’s Assistant Book 1) was so fantastic I almost feel guilty only paying that little. I usually pay around $7 for kindle versions of books this awesome. Claire works for the devil. She inherited it from her mother. Oh goody! When the devil’s favorite son is murdered and she is suspect #1 she has to clear her name. I honestly can’t praise this book enough. Claire is tough and smart, just the way I like heroines.
Read the blurb –
Claire, the Devil’s assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother’s unpaid debt to the Demon King. She certainly didn’t expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen’s throne, a target for the Druid King’s mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil’s oldest hell spawn.
In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.
Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.
Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?
