Review: Speaking of the Devil

Speaking of the Devil (Days of New, #1) SpeakingDevil

by Meg Collett

Set in the same world as the bestselling End of Days series comes the darkly comedic stand-alone serial spin-off, Days of New.

Clark St. James, self-professed man-candy with pink hair and duct-taped boots, didn’t ask to be the leader of the Nephilim clans or to have ancient angel magic contained in the unwanted tattoos on his arms. And most importantly, he didn’t ask for the holy angels to get their panties in a twist and ravage the earth during an angel civil war.

Instead, Clark is making lemonade out of life’s lemons. With vodka. And a splash of whiskey just because.

It’s up to the Descendants of Enoch—an order of humans meant to protect the holy angels while on Earth—and Clark’s Nephilim to set this destroyed world back on its axis. The angels in Heaven are busy repairing their city and rebuilding a new form of democracy. In Hell, everyone is adjusting to a new form of leadership after Clark killed Lucifer, prince of the fallen.

Technically, it was an accident. But people keep forgetting that.

Just when things were beginning to get boring, someone starts murdering Descendants in very…unique ways. Ways that incriminate Clark. But there’s always a calling card beside the bodies: a single burnt black feather. And Clark only knows one fallen angel that got crispy fried.

Apparently Lucifer is back. And he’s pissed off.

my review

★★★★★: Awesome!!! I really loved this book! (Highly recommended)

Clark St. James is back, this time in the Days of New series by Meg Collett. I first read about him on The Hunted One, where he found the fallen and disgraced Archangel Michaela. Despite the accusations thrown on the powerful angel, Clark chose her side and believed her and saved her in more ways than one. Now that Michaela becomes the Angel of Death, Clark is on his own to fulfill his own destiny, being the leader of the Nephilim and dealing with the markings on his body. And yes, the pink hair, there is that, something that really befits him. I’ve always liked him in the End of Days series, and I’m so glad to learn more about him in this new book, Speaking of The Devil.

When things were starting to simmer down, between the Nephilim and Descendants, between him and Camille, the Throne Angel, suddenly, one of the ghosts of his past came knocking on his door, opening up new wounds and bringing about new pains.  And there’s those dreams.. like premonitions, hallucinations.  Of him and Camille. Of him and Sophia. Of him and Lucifer.

Yes, apparently, Lucifer is back from the fires of Hell, back with vengeance, back with minions of his own.

Meg Collett once again impressed me with her whole new level of awesomeness. Clark, ever snarky, sarcastic and oozing with sex appeal, always provide humor in every instances. I love how she continuously amaze me with her writing prowess. I love how she made Clark brimming with hotness and punk. I liked that his tandem with Zarachiel is admirable, his charm with the ladies unprecedented and his sardonic attitude towards un-lovable characters believable. And of course, his murderous passion for Lucifer and their unfinished battle is  really something worth looking forward to.

Meg writes a very interesting story that allows the readers to also get angry with the characters, cry with them, loathe with them, feel powerful with them and even banter with them. It’s as if you become a part of their otherworldly lives, a life that could be devilishly fun & dangerous at one point. And with that, I can’t wait to read the next book!
