I found it to be too "hopelessly romantic." There were just too many repeats of overused romantic wording. Almost felt like a young romance novel. But, I Loved the last part of epilogue and am going to try next in series hoping for improvement.

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings - some corporeal, some not so much - as she struggles to right the wrongs of society.

Even though it was explained in the end, it became annoying that it took so long for characters to figure out who did it. Other thsn that, it was a good losten to pass time.

It was good. At times kept thinking what else could happen to make story so long, then unexpected new things did happen. It took a long time, but finally found out what occured in the house. A part that made me sad was the lose of an important innocent friendship.

Despite Vivienne’s broken heart and deadly truths, the show must go on at the Cirque des Immortels. But it takes more than glamour and sex appeal to keep the Big Top running; without the magic and support Viv came to rely on, the circus is in danger. Now the troupe verges on rebellion, the war between Mab and Oberon rages on, and a horrifying menace looms - with Vivienne stuck in the middle of it all.

Murdered contortionists aren't exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can't quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded - because forever means something quite different at the Cirque des Immortels.

Narrator is awesome. Story has lots of secrets and keeps you guessing. It does have an ending but still leaves questions. Good for me the trilogy is already written. The next trilogy is good also.

This is such a roller coaster! Makes you think about all the ugly horrible people out there and then the amazing ones who fight back. Only one part made me really upset with story ( how much bad timing could keep happening ). I know it possible and used as a way to keep story going, but is just seems a little over the top at times. Other than that, great book.

This book addresses so many issues relavent to teens and adults today by using a story that kept me engaged & interested. (ie: lack of adult interaction & modeling to stop childhood meanness to the point of even engaging in it, internet/social media methods of bullying and the difficulties of finding the perpetrator, racial gender & intellectual behaviors that have become subconsciously ingrained, etc...) I hated to have to take a break because I wanted to know what happened next. It shocked me into awareness of some of my own "veiled unseen" behaviors. I am really glad I listened to it and am going to make my teenage daughter read/listen to it.
