Publisher's Summary

Rejected at birth and raised in a village of tiefling misfits, Farideh expects a life without friends, love, or control over her destiny. Then she makes a pact with a devil named Lorcan, and everything changes. Lorcan promises all she ever dreamed of and asks for nothing in return. Her twin sister, Havilar, urges Farideh to resist the devil’s sway. But Farideh’s not so sure. Lorcan may be dangerous but the power he offers is exhilarating.

In the ruins of Neverwinter, Farideh’s doubts get tangled up in a devilish snare six layers deep. A succubus playing human pawns against an otherworldly foe sees the twins as obstacles in her path. And Lorcan’s monstrous sisters have their eyes on the city—and on Farideh. There’s no time to question her pact with Lorcan—it will take every ounce of Farideh’s newfound powers to get out of Neverwinter alive.

Stunning

Amazing story, and I am so glad it was pointed to in the D&D 5e player's handbook in the entry for Tieflings. Provides some amazing insight into the nature of tieflings and warlocks.
The narration was excellent. I was slightly disappointed with the voice for Asmodeus in the epilogue, as I would have expected a deep menacing almost omnipotent threat, but such a voice would be difficult to achieve without heavy audio effects, which obviously was not the style of this simple narrated recording. The voices through the rest of the book were great.

Good start to the Realms for New Comers

Very entertaining story focusing on Warlocks who get their powers from Devils and the inner workings of the Forgotten Realms' Hells.

Reader does well to have separate modes of speech for each character and stays consistent. However, it is hard to realize when there is a shift of perspective. Most jarring when it occurs mid-chapter especially when focusing on the devils.

My only issue with the story are a couple of moments when characters meet in contrived ways that seem impossible. The city that is in the story is relatively the size of New York yet three main characters bump into each other very easily with no one seeking the others out.

Overall a 5 because it's a good listen. 4's because of a few moments that took me out of the story.

Great example of well rounded characters.

If you could sum up Brimstone Angels in three words, what would they be?

Adventurous. Funny. Human.

"Brimstone Angels" came as a pleasant surprise. The fantastic fantasy adventure from a novel based on the dungeons & dragons games is expected, but not one with so many characters a reader can relate to. Each and every character was well thought out and so well rounded with their own strengths and personal insecurities that the story became something much more than an outlet for fans of the setting and source material. Farideh, her sister, her adoptive father, her new friend and even her controlling bad influence Lorcan could share character traits with people you meet at school, work or in the streets.

Who was your favorite character and why?

If you had ever had a sibling, Havilar, Farideh's sister, polar opposite and personality fence, has to be the most entertaining character to follow. Every time Havilar and Farideh enter a situation together the bickering and jokes come forth in such a naturally silly sisterly way that an audience will be hard pressed not to smile.

What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

Her performance was great. She nailed the whole silly bickering of the teenage twins routine with such flair that I laughed out loud a couple of times.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love the fact that this book seemed humorously stuck on family dynamics. Everything in this book remind me of a terribly funny family reunion. It's not just Farideh, her sister and her adoptive father. Brin has a funny awkward family issue. Even the villains, Lorcan, his mother and sisters, all the way down to the overlords of hell are humorously jabbing each other in their own dark way when they are related.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book, regardless of the source material, because it's a great character study. There is an odd jumping around in the writing towards the end as the plot gets fast paced, but I was able to follow it fine and was totally worth it because the plot and characters were just that great.

Narrator

The narrator seriously could be the voice of Velma from the original Scooby-Doo tv show. Too nasily, doesn't sound good, I see why many other people had issues listening to this book.

Great book!

A fun and intense story. Refreshing to hear the point of view from a warlock, and how she progresses through her change. Can't wait to hear the rest of the books!

On par with a Drizzt story.

Loved the book, decided to pick it up after finishing the Drizzt story line for now. This book brings more life to Toral that you dont see in aome of the other novals. Everything from the nine hells to eldritch horrors, definitely recommend it!

Great story of a Warlock

I really enjoyed this story. It was interested to see a character start out young and on the brink of adulthood setting out on an adventure. Really cool to see the intricacies of devil culture and how Warlocks go about making their pacts.

Only complaint would be there is no pause or shift when perspective shifts. You can pick up what happened shortly after but it does change really quickly if you're not paying close attention.

A great tale, kinda wrecked by the narration.

This is a strong story, with excellent characters, and I look forward to reading the other books. Unfortunately, the narrator really spoils most aspects of this version, most especially in the character and tone of the dialogue which misrepresents the main characters completely. Frustrating!
