Publisher's Summary

Now, too late for it to matter, Audrey understands at last. The devil of Fairview has been courting her for days, and watching her for much longer than that. The murderer is her boyfriend - and he's been killing on her behalf.

His name is Jack Maddox, but everyone calls him Mad Jack. He's planning a party, where everyone is invited, especially Audrey's tormentors - especially the Facebook 15.

Audrey will have her revenge, whether she wants it or not.

Because, in Miss Drake's class, the devil will have his due.

    "Book 3"
    If you could sum up The Devil at Play in three words, what would they be?

    There was so much going on and I have been waiting to see how all of this craziness was going to end. Of course since I just love Audrey so much my heart was at time breaking for her, while other times I was exhilarated for her.

    "wow awesome paranormal, suspence drama!"

    Wow, I came into this series at book 3.........I'm off to get the other two asap. Our hero bullied and they planning a horrible fate for her but she's saved by her ex best friend who suddenly realized they've gone too far. Unfortunately a supernatural being from the other side is upset that he didn't get her! Now it's trying to manipulate the bullies into finishing the job so he can have our hero. great narration though a little dull at times. I'd buy the rest in the series no questions.

    I was provided a copy for a fair review.

    "Fantastic ending!"

    I've loved every bit of the two previous book and this lives up to my now very high expectations of Mr. Damanda's writing and Ms. McEvoy's narration. Read or listen to all of them. Can't recommend highly enough.

    "HAUNTING !! "

    I was also able to read an advanced copy, and I loved it. Fast paced, witty, fun, touching, and tough all rolled into a story with a hero that you will want to come back to again and again. It made me see that 'wrong' isn't always as it seems, and I look forward to many more nights spent with Marcus Damanda..

    "Super Wow story! Love it."

    It was my great pleasure to listen to the Devil in Miss Drake’s class series. I received a free, no-obligation copy of these audio books.
    I have to say wow to this story that is separated into three books. While you could just listen to one and enjoy it, I highly recommend reading/listening to all three to find out the final outcome and the fate of Audrey, who struggles with depression after the death of her brother and her attempted suicide that takes place in book one.
    Throughout the story, “The Facebook fifteen” whose constant bullying drove Audrey to attempt her suicide—she was only spared from death because one of them realized they had gone too far and called for help. The EMT’s arrived just in the nick of time to save Audrey (back in book one) and Audrey spent three months in a mental hospital. Unknown to Audrey, the Facebook Fifteen is planning revenge for their punishments – well minus one at least, her ex best-friend, who saved her life but is not allowed any contact with Audrey. However, mental breakdown isn’t the only problem plaguing Audrey. Her real enemy is supernatural and is driving the Facebook Fifteen with taunts to get even with Audrey. This force is unhappy that Audrey has survived and considers her unfinished business…
    ..which is the story behind book two in which we meet Jack, the body the host has claimed to suck Audrey in (literally). However, Jack develops feelings for Audrey and has his sights set on destroying the Facebook Fifteen, picking them off one at a time… all except one, for which he has a special plan…
    …that you must read book three to uncover the truth and discover the fate of Audrey, the rest of the Facebook Fifteen, and Miss Drake.
    Don’t hesitate to read or listen to this series, if you like supernatural, ghostly, demonic things. The story is tastefully told, unfolds well, and has some pretty interesting characters. The narrator is an added bonus and does a great job of taking on different personas.
    Thanks, Marcus for allowing me to review your books. It was a real treat.

    Story
    "Brilliant finish to the trilogy."

    I was once again thrilled to be provided with a copy of this audiobook so that I could provide a review. We don't like to tuck this away at the end, but don't be misled by it. I had a chance for a review copy before I got my new credits. All delays in getting a new Marcus Damanda book are bad.

    This book is great. Having now finished 4 of Damanda's titles, I'm still surprised by the little touches and decisions that make the characters feel real and world alive. It's almost silly how giddy I was when I realized there was about to be a tire slashing, and then it was done the real world way, not in classic movie style. I stopped the book to call someone and rave about it. There are other examples, but they might give too much away and I'd never forgive me if I spoiled any of the big moments.

    If it's possible you've arrived at this review having finished the first two books in the series and are unsure about finishing the set, stop hesitating. Go back and listen to the first two books again and then complete the trilogy. This last installment brings everything together and finishes with surprise after surprise. It breaks from the style of the first two slightly, in that events unfold in near to real-time. Everything ends in just about 9 fiction hours and the vast majority of the action takes place in 4 of those, with an intimate eye on detail as the tale comes to a close.

    Every book in the series has been dark, and this one is no exception. No, sir. Dead dark stuff here, but, as I look back at the series, I've noticed a different texture to the darkness in each book. This book is the wrathful dark. Physically brutal, this is where Audrey pays back every bit of the pain. Where the final decision is left with the reader if Jack was truly the monster or the hero.

    Jessica McEvoy's narration is, if I'm being honest, even better than before. Though I was unwilling to mar my admiration for her work in other reviews, earlier recordings have had very minor issues with the distortion when characters screamed. There are no such issues with this performance. Her voice and vocal talent are amazing. Her flawless alto voice keeps forcing me to say it's low and smokey because I start to feel creepy trying to capture the right words for it. It's seductive. Drawing you in among the characters and their private thoughts, making everything feel close.

    "I am so sad to to see this trilogy end."

    I loved these 3 books! I hate to see them end. They are down right creepy.
    this is an action packed book that that wraps the books up nicely. It is crazy to think what some kids are capable of. This is a great fiction cyber bully trilogy. Careful what you say and do online, it might just come back to get you, and your friends as well.

    "Not as good as the previous"

    I enjoyed this book but not as much as the one before. I feel like if you don't read the other books you are just lost on the who is who, why they're doing the things they are doing and what the point of any of it is. Some parts of all the books in this series are far fetched but not so much that it ruins anything for me but it may for some. The narrator's reading style and pace takes a bit of getting used to but I felt it actually added to the story once I got used to it. This book was gifted to me by the author for an honest review and although I did like the book, it certainly is not for everyone. I would strongly recommend that the other books in this series be listened to or read in order for readers/listeners to really be able to truly enjoy it and be aware of all that is going on in this book and what has happened previously to cause all of it.
