Samantha Martin is an imp, bound by an angel who allows her to live among the humans...as long as she follows his rules. It's never easy for an imp to follow the rules, especially now that Sam's brother, Dar, has found himself in hot water. He needs her help to retrieve an artifact from the vampires, or the powerful demon he owes a favor to will enslave and torture him for centuries. It should be a simple courier job, but with demons nothing is simple. Sam reluctantly attempts to help her brother, trying not antagonize the vampires or the demon gunning for him, all while chafing to comply with the restrictions her angel has placed on her as a bound demon.

I have something like 216 books in my library at this time, I always mean to be more active but I go nowhere without a book in my earphones
yes I would. this book is a great continuation of the imp series the author has done a good job fleshing out the characters and the storyline is shaping up to be quite interesting I am interested to learn what new adventures our wayward demon gets into
I think these books so far are most similar to the October daye novels. a slightly ditsy heroin with more powerful friends and enemies who still manages to fumble through although toby is more intelligent who knows the series is still young.
she has a...idk smoky tone that helps convey a better mental picture plus I like hearing female lead books read by a female narrator. in the first book I thought she had trouble with the male voices but I was well pleased with how she did this book
it did keep my attention but as it was more of a fun book for me and not quite so life or death serious I did not feel a compelling need to keep listening...but I did still finish it in under 2 days so it was enjoyable.
i see that there are several more in this series out on paper back i am looking forward to when thy come to audible.
I find it strangely amusing.
When she was trying to understand the serial killer. And then when she is whining to wyatt that she is upset about the serial killer being stupid and not being able to dehydrate an ear properly.
OK. So in my review of the previous book I mentioned that ALL of the characters are completely amoral. Case in point - Wyatt, the boyfriend. Their relationship is a romance novel flipped on its head and soaked in acid.... instead of the night in shining armor rescuing the helpless female and then engage in steamy moments...you have the helpless human male being protected by the serial killer demon who at one point shares its deepest fantasy....along the lines of...I want to put you in a bathtub full of blood and strangle you with some entrails that I am gnawing on.... Instead of running screaming....he's like..can we use wine instead of blood....hot stuff...uh huh...any who.... He sees her in her demon form. She offers in all seriousness to kill a rival that he lost a video game tournament to. He knows that she kills people...and he is like...well babe I'm going to play video games and then you are done killing and torturing people we can go have some hot wings at the bar..... I kept thinking about women who are married to serial killers and people are like..how did you not know you were married to a monster.... and yet I like them all....crazy
This second book in the series is actually even better than the first. The lead character was funnier than ever, more hedonistic, yet you can't help but like her candor (even as some of her actions / thoughts repulse you!)
Can't wait for the next installment
The pace of narration was quite slow, but that was resolved by switching to 1.5x speed. However, Her narration is impeccable. She brings the characters to life such a way one wouldn't get from just reading the book. I reckon she's one of the best narrators I've come across yet.
this was a good story, I would like to see her investigate more of her powers. It has become everdent she is gifted and more powerfull then others of her kind and is different. But overall a gpod book two.
I enjoyed the narration and the story kept me interested. It's not a high action book but there was some. I had a small problem with the main character's fascination with Bundy the mass murderer. But hey she is a demon. Still I'd rather she was fascinated with a fictional murder. The writer is pretty good but she leaves out little details that would have helped me imagine the scenes better. Mostly sometimes I wasn't sure of the characters body in turns of if she was naked or in another form still or what she looked like in public places. I found the storyline a nice change from other werewolf and vampire fiction. And I enjoyed the main character's quirkiness.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I liked the first book okay, but there were things about it that was off putting and since the reviewers were saying the second book is better I figured I would give it another shot. Especially since I bought the first three book in this series unheard, but at $6.00 total it was hard not to. There was some really funny parts and overall it was better than the first book, there were still a few off putting parts. It's hard to believe how understanding Wyatt is. I did laughed my ass off when Sam turned into a dog. I also like Diablo the horse demon. The narrator has a weird voice, and she reads soooooo slow so I ended up putting my player on fast speed.
Book-aholic and Craft-aholic. I have a great variety interests of when it comes to books and crafts. I have a very open mind when it comes to books, music, gardening and crafts. So I may go on tangent of topic , but it does change genera so you will find out my views on many subjects though it is seldom I am a black and white but more of a grey person, depending on the subject.
I really enjoyed this book it was funny and action packed. I couldn't wait to see what the imp demon could come up with next.
Absolutely, the book is well written and has great pacing.
I enjoy the exploration of the demon hierarchies.
She has an excellent vocal range and can give each of them good vocal depth. Making it clear and noticeable when the scene changes and who is in it.
There would not be a tag line. Satan's sword is all the title it would need.
I am a professional driver and therefore spend a lot of time on the road. Audible has been a great source of entertainment for me.
I enjoy the snarky attitude of the main character. I enjoy the fact that she is a sort of hero, but not a goody two shoes. The similarities and differences between angels and demons is interesting as well. Good read in my opinion. I love that it is unique in its story.
This series is quickly becoming my new favorite. The characters and plot are so unique and original, and the story is always engaging. There is never a dull moment, and Debra Dunbar has created such a fantastic world. Angela Rysk is the perfect narrator for these books and I can't wait to continue with this series!
The best series I have read this year. I hope audible publishes the rest of the series as they seem to have only the two books at the moment. The story and the wonderful narration bring a great combination together. Highly recommended.
