Release Date: April 2017
All things truly wicked start from innocence.
Being a demon isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Especially when you make a massive mistake your first month on the job.
Even more so when your sister is one of the all-star players on the other team.
Add in the rumors of not one but two coups and it’s not hard to see—something wicked this way comes….
A few months ago, I got introduced to the writing of L.M Pruitt by doing the review for Silk! It was a murder/mystery book and it was utterly brilliant! I completely fell in love with her writing and when the opportunity came to read and review Wicked I could not resist.
I did not realize that Wicked is the second book of the Damned Series, as I started reading I realized that I was really missing something so after looking on amazon and GoodReads, I realized that this was book 2 and it was not one of those standalone where I could read without knowing too much what happened before.
So I went back and I got my hands on Damned and I started reading. so to give you a bit of a background, Julie is a southern belle who out of the blue gets recruited to become a Lust Demon (a succubus) and as such loses her soul but moves in with one of the higher up demons of the underworld.
I really liked the fact that here demons are not shown as inherently evil, but doing an important job and brining balance. I like the choice made of showing the needed balance of good and evil in the world. Now, I am not saying that having evil around is ok, but nature is all about balance, so I get it!
Pretty much Damned cover the first 2 weeks of Julie as a demon until she makes a mistakes and this is were we start our story in Book 2 Wicked! We get finally the answer to a massive question in book 1 and we go on from there.
I am not going to dig in deeper, but I love how the story picked up from establishing characters to now adding more elements of strife and intrigue. There are things happening in the background and our girl ends up in the middle of it all.
The writing is really great, and I am really loving the storyline so far and if I am not mistaken, you will also be getting the following book’s review very soon! I am not sure how long this series will go for, but I am hoping it will stay as riveting and maintain the high standards already shown.
I am having so much fun with the characters, Winged (angels) and the demons and I gotta say that the demons are so so so much fun! Which is really funning coming from me, when we all know that I am a huge angel fan in general.
Both books are fun, sexy and all over entertaining and I can only recommend them to you guys but like I said, you need to start with Damned first and then you can go on into Wicked!
I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did and I cannot wait till I read book 3 of the series!
and offered a half-hearted wave. “Hello.”
“And you’re being rude to my husband.”
I spun to face Barry, watching the entire scene with no expression whatsoever.
L.M. Pruitt has been reading since before she can remember, and writing nearly as long. She fell in love with New Orleans after spending one week there, and visits the city as often as her schedule permits–which isn’t nearly often enough. She is the best selling author of the Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, the Frankie Post series, and the Winged series. She makes her home in Florida.
