Hell’s newest employee, Lilith Straight, thinks she’s got a handle on her job as the Devil’s temptress until she finds herself going horns-to-halo with a guardian angel who’s determined to rescue Lilith’s next victim. To make matters worse, William Darcy, the hottest demon in hell, is trying to undermine Lilith’s mission with a few temptations of his own.
Well I have to say I might have enjoyed this book a little more than the first. It pumps the reader with witty comments like the first but throws in a lot more action to go with it. Lilith has come to terms with the fact that she is an succubus but is still unsure about William Darcy and worried about her future fate, along with her daughters. She is still living with the guilt of what she did to Tommy and Jasmine and is still trying to repair the relationship.
I was a little worried that this novel might be very similar to the first, but I have to say it is even better. I particularly liked the competitive edge between Lilith and William which really shows the development of Lilith's character across the two books. Miss Spry is now 'motivating' her staff rather than threatening them, this new edge to the character creates rifts between Lilith and William which makes the book very different to the first.
Perhaps the most developed character in this novel I thought was Mr Clerk. I cannot believe that Scott's publisher wanted her to take this character out!!!! I think he is vital to both novels storyline and Lilith's character development, not mentioning William Darcy's. Mr Clerk becomes very lovable as a victim of both Miss Spry and William Darcy. The change that he experiences really makes the novel and leads us into the third book.
Lilith must now carry out assignments with the added fear that angels will come too in order to stop her completing them. I really liked this added extra confusion to the assignments which left the tasks just as interesting as before. It made the novel much more exciting. Well worth a read!
