A day in the life of the Devil should be exhilarating—lying, stealing, cheating at poker and finally beating Mr. Rogers… Life should be wonderful. Right? Wrong.
The love of my dastardly immortal life is eating everything that isn’t nailed down and tried to behead me over a chocolate croissant. While I take chocolate croissants very seriously, I do believe decapitation is somewhat harsh.
My daughters, the Seven Deadly Sins, are driving me to drink. Getting them mated off and the hell out of Hell is at the top on my agenda.
The one thing that is keeping me sane—sane being a relative word—is my upcoming special day. After living a millennium and never knowing the date I came to be, I have sussed out the information from my certifiably insane, pole-dancing mother. She’s swears on her empty head that my birthday is April 1st.
Soon, April 1st will mean something. I’m no fool. I plan to make my birthday far more famous than my do-gooder nephew’s. That day in December will be forgotten when I get done making my womb eviction day the most important in the history of the Universe.
I shall simply go about business as usual. Punishments must be doled out and chaos must be encouraged. A vacation would be lovely, but there is no rest for the weary… or the evil. Luckily I know how to have an outstanding time doing outrageously bad things.
So Satan decides that as he once didn’t exist, he must have been born, and thus had a birthday. Note that his brother, God, has one too.
If you have a birthday, then it only stands to reason you should have a party to celebrate that birthday . But when Satan asks his mother when he was born, his mother is very shifty and won’t tell him exactly when he was born. So, he decides to invent his birthday so that he can have a birthday party. In Hell. And so things develop from there. As you can imagine this book is full of humour, full of strange ideas, full of weird happenings. Robyn Peterman has a really strange imagination, but one that is very funny.

Escape hell. Save the world. Simple, huh?My name's Jynx. This morning I was a princess of hell.Now I'm it's most wanted.After a coup in hell, Lucifer's niece, Jynx Morningstar, is on the run with the king of hell in her back pocket (in handy stone doll form) and a hellcat with delusions of grandeur. To save her uncle and by extension, hell and the world above, Jynx must evade the legions of hell, master her human magic and track down her father: a healer witch.Simple. Yeah, right....What she doesn't expect is to walk into the middle of a shapeshifter/vampire turf war, a sexy as sin alpha werewolf who claims she's his one true mate, or to actually care what happens to the residents of small town, Boring.But when Death comes a'knocking she must make a choice. Go big and reveal what she is, or go home and leave them to their fates... A demon would leave them in a heartbeat, but can Jynx rise above her demon blood and prove what a true princess of hell is made of?Please note: contains high amounts of snark, an adorable werewolf looking for true love, a demon princess trying to avoid 'feelings' and a viking-wearing hellcat.
Oh yes, another snarky writer… and yes echoes of Robyn Peterman and that shifter town of Asshat – yes , Mina, I did recognise these …
But I do like this Princess Jynx, and I find I do like Mina Carter – the first book of hers I’ve read.
The storyline is nice, but I would have preferred the book to have been longer and more complicated. Still can’t wait to find out what Uncle Lucy will do next.

Unlike her famous older brother Maxon, Princess Portia isn't known for killing demons or attracting admirers. The reason why is simple: a spell was cast on Portia, and the magic has marked her to one day transform into a dreaded Void demon.
To fight this horrible fate, Portia’s spent her life hiding in libraries and learning magic. But when the Void demons threaten to destroy all the after-realms—and the handsome dragon Emperor Tempest offers his help—then Portia suspects that her future holds more than just a demonic metamorphosis.
Fate is calling the bookworm princess onto the battlefield.
This time, it’s a fight against both deadly enemies and her heart’s desires.
This for me, was more of a novella in length and thus was
not long enough to include sufficient originality. It was less complex in
storyline than the original novel. Also, author, Brits (males) do not end every
sentence with ‘luv’. I know because my
husband calls me this, but only a few times a day, not every time he speaks to
he left him at the altar, but the devil is making him keep his promise.
Destiny is calling Chris, yet someone forgot to give him an instruction manual on conquering the world. Being the #Antichrist is all well and good, but how is he supposed to know how to bring about Armageddon? He’s still waiting for his army of minions, the glory, the riches. And where is the respect?
You’d think any woman would be ecstatic at the thought of marrying the future ruler of the world.
She keeps spouting things like “forced to get married,” “love me for myself, not because Daddy made you.”
It doesn’t help that his psychotic mother with a penchant for playing with dead things has taken an interest. However, having her henchman of the apocalypse attempt to kidnap him isn’t the way to get in his good graces.
Things are starting to get complicated on Earth. Dark forces are rising, Chris’s powers are still developing—and he’s pretty sure his dad, Lucifer, wants him dead. What’s the destroyer of the world to do?
Point him to the nearest bar. This calls for more beer.
Now Christopher has a Ducky. Yes, the same girl he had museum adventures with.
She has this magical chastity belt which is very frustrating.
And after running off initially at the idea of marriage, she agrees to marry Chris, but only if her father can walk her down the aisle. The missing or is he dead, father.
And so the adventure begins.
A fun, flirty story with lots of strange happenings in Hell and elsewhere. A nicely written series running alongside the original Hell series and filling i some of the gaps, as well as opening up good potential for yet more characters’ stories.
*Warning, this book contains scenes of dead people having sex, only really sexy dead people, not zombies or sparkly vampires. Rest assured, no body parts fell off during the making of these sex scenes, just bras and undies, and no fangs or hammers were used during foreplay.**
My afterlife has sunk to a new level of desperate, all because some badass demon banished my friends to the fourth dimension of the fiery pit.
When I signed up for this rescue mission, nobody told me about the bugs, hives, and sweltering heat. That I could handle. Add to that a sinfully sexy boyfriend with serious ex-fiancée issues, three temperamental giants, a psychotic demon dentist, and a really hungry soul-sucking dragon, and this trip to Hell has become the trip from Hell.
And I forgot to pack my sunscreen.
Here I am reviewing the next books in this series.
#3 Damned and Desperate
I always thought that Heaven would be dull but Tara West’s version is anything but. You wake up with no kinks in your muscles, no aches, and shiny hair. And you have your own valet – who takes whichever form you like – to look after you. Only problem seems to be that you eat cheesecake all the time and it has a numbing effect on your emotions and memory if you eat too much!
At first I was all for it, but after a while I thought, maybe not. Perhaps the top level of purgatory might be better where you have a job and friends and…
But first you have to rescue everyone who for various reasons has fallen into Hell and needs some serious ‘angel’ help to get back up the ladders.
This is a great fun and humourous series that I’m thoroughly enjoying. Tara West has a wild imagination…
