Speaking of the Devil by Meg Collett [SBM Review]

Speaking of the Devil
(A Days of New Series Book 1)

Set in the same world as the bestselling End of Days series comes the darkly comedic stand-alone serial spin-off, Days of New. 

Clark St. James, self-professed man-candy with pink hair and duct-taped boots, didn’t ask to be the leader of the Nephilim clans or to have ancient angel magic contained in the unwanted tattoos on his arms. And most importantly, he didn’t ask for the holy angels to get their panties in a twist and ravage the earth during an angel civil war. 

Instead, Clark is making lemonade out of life’s lemons. With vodka. And a splash of whiskey just because. 

It’s up to the Descendants of Enoch—an order of humans meant to protect the holy angels while on Earth—and Clark’s Nephilim to set this destroyed world back on its axis. The angels in Heaven are busy repairing their city and rebuilding a new form of democracy. In Hell, everyone is adjusting to a new form of leadership after Clark killed Lucifer, prince of the fallen. 

Technically, it was an accident. But people keep forgetting that. 

Just when things were beginning to get boring, someone starts murdering Descendants in very…unique ways. Ways that incriminate Clark. But there’s always a calling card beside the bodies: a single burnt black feather. And Clark only knows one fallen angel that got crispy fried. 

Apparently Lucifer is back. And he’s pissed off.

Clark has always been a tortured character. He was given a destiny he not only never wanted, but one he never ever dreamed of. I just loved the end of days series and have been excited to continue the adventure. Clark is left to clean up the world and keep everyone protected. He thought he took care of Lucifer, but he seems to have been mistaken. While reading this I got to know Clark even better than before. At times I wanted to reach in and just shake him and say get your head out of your a.. Well I'm crossing my fingers he's going to once again surprise everyone. Clark has his own way of doing things and I can't wait to follow the adventure.
