Ciaran Richards’ father was a soldier. A hero.
But now he’s dead. Or is he?
Can Claire defeat the latest contender, survive the quads, and replace the curator before Harry figures out she’s stolen his blood.
Last Spring, Claire was framed for the murder of Junior, the Devil’s oldest hellspawn. Last Summer, she reawakened the fourth realm, saved the world (after almost destroying it), and wound up with the worst job ever.
Now, Claire’s been locked out of her realm, given an assistant that doesn’t actually assist, and told to handle a small problem in Underworld that might just get her killed. And to top it all off, Mab’s made one of the contenders her untouchable. So, yeah, you could say Claire’s having one of those days.
Highly imaginative and consistently enjoyable, Dark Forsaken is Book 3 in the Devil's Assistant series by H D Smith and she’s knocked this one out of the ball park. Smith has an endlessly inventive imagination; really understanding how this ever popular genre works and what it takes for readers to buy into a series. Her books seem storyboarded and ready for the big screen with just the right tonal flourishes to bring her characters to life, always finding an equitable balance between show and tell. She’s a natural fantasist and as in the preceding books in the series her writing has an enticing rhythm that disdains pretension and simply delivers a cracking good story. Yes, you could make comparisons to other bestsellers in this ever popular genre, but in combining her special brand of mythology, fantasy and a little romance she’s created a highly original hybrid of her own.
Another winner for Smith, Dark Forsaken takes the series to yet another level. An absolute must read for fans of the genre, especially those who appreciate great writing and originality. It is recommended without reservation!
