Publisher's Summary

After three months in the suicide prevention wing of St. George's, Audrey Bales is finally coming home. Enrolled at a new school, she plans to reinvent herself with a new look, new friends, and a second chance to be just like everyone else. But the kids who drove her over the edge aren't through with her yet.

And one of her new friends has an agenda all his own.

"You will account for what you did to Audrey. You, and all the others. It will never stop ..."

During the day, the halls of Battlefield High will echo with their screams.

"...until one of you ends it."

And at night, their screams will be silenced.

Book 2

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Devil in Daylight?

The continuation of Audrey's story. She's getting her life back together, making friends, dating and generally being successful, even after that horrible bullying incident in which she nearly died. But trouble is brewing. There's a new kid at school with her and he's not what he seems.

A Devil Working His Magic

As Jack is setting up revenge for Audrey, she is simply trying to get on with her life. And despite daily occurrences that make it seem impossible, she is doing a pretty good job of it. She has made some friends, maybe even a boyfriend, has found a teacher to trust in, and is doing her best to forget about the FB 15. The hard part is several of them are at her new school. Lucky for her, Jack knows who they are.

This book is more nuanced and at a deeper level than the first. Audrey does not know who Jack really is and the lengths he will go to punish the FB 15. There is darkness swirling around her and it keeps trying to suck her in. I'm rooting for her, though, and so are many others. You will, too, once you listen to the first book. I am on to the last in this series and can't wait to see what happens! I just hope Audrey makes it out alive and with her mind intact.

Jessica McEvoy's narration fits this material to a T. It is perfect on 1.5 speed

Excellent story, worth the read

If you enjoy stories about supernatural retribution, this is a must. I have never read a Marcus Demanda story before, but I am familiar with Jessica McEvoy's voice acting.

This is an engrossing story, read by a talented voice actor. It is in three parts, but worth the time.

Gripping Thriller !!

I downloaded the Kindle book on a free promo and was happily astonished to find an involving, expertly written story. This guy knows how to write in first person and build scenes tangible enough for the reader to stand and look around in.. The psychic connections and miraculous occurrences at the end kind of came out of left field, but by that time. I had. become so engrossed in the angst that I bought into all of it.

A great page-turner

The Devil in Miss Drake's class is the second in the series and picks up where book one left off... another cliff hanger. What I liked about this story is that it was different from the horror story meant to entertain us by shocking us. It's a little bit about bullying and a bit about the supernatural. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Unfortunately, I have to wait for book three to find out. The characters are interesting, with the typical popular crowd, jocks, and of course the outcasts. Don't hesitate to listen. Jessica McEvoy has a great talent in portraying different characters, although I found her narration voice to be a bit sleepy. Overall though she did a pretty decent job.

An excellent continuation!

I enjoyed the first book of the series and after this cannot wait to listen to the third! A beautifully narrated and wonderfully paced second act in the story of Audrey Bales. Definitely worth the listen or read.

Great tale of anti bullying mixed with supernatural

2nd book in a series
With a serious
Message. Anti bullying with a spirit of 999 (with room for one more?) cautionary supernatural tale about the Internet and the cruelty of the current generation through cyber bullying. I really enjoy this story and the narrator does a great job with it. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.

Excellent Read ... Waiting Patiently for Book 3!!

Where does A Devil in Daylight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have over 250+ titles in my library and I believe that 50 are of this genre. Out of those 50 I would rank this book in my top 5!

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Devil in Daylight?

There was no one memorable moment for me ... the entire book kept me enthralled, engaged and excited for each chapter. I was disappointed when it ended ... wished it could have been longer. I was especially excited to see that Jessica McEvoy was narrating. She is one of my top 3 narrators when it comes to audio books. She manages to bring the storyline and characters to life for you. She has perfect intonation and knows exactly when to speak in a calm tone that gives you goosebumps and she knows when to be excited to almost manic allowing the reader to enjoy the book at a whole new level. Jessicas' narration is nothing less than perfect. I am patiently waiting for book 3 of this series!!

If you could rename A Devil in Daylight, what would you call it?

I wouldn't rename the book. I think A Devil in Daylight captures the story perfectly!
