Not that she’s counting.
When she signed a contract giving her soul and memories to a demon named Ander, she didn’t expect that she would ever have to face termination. But now Ander is dead and she’ll be following suit if she can’t find a way to dissolve the deal.
Too bad she can’t remember anything from the time before she signed the contract.
Fritz Friederling, a billionaire demon hunter who owns several businesses in Hell, isn’t ready to give up on Isobel. But she isn’t sure that working with Fritz is better than dying. She doesn’t know much about her past life, but she knows that she signed Ander’s contract for a reason—and that getting away from Fritz was a significant part of it.
Escaping her contract means remembering the life that she chose to forget. And it means trusting Fritz Friederling, who Isobel fears might be the biggest danger of all.
Well, this certainly changes things. Deadly Wrong was a book packed full of revelations. It’s no secret that Fritz and Isobel were previously involved. Along with her life, Isobel lost all the memories of her past, she depended on Fritz to help her remember who she was before she signed Ander’s contract. Turns out, even Fritz didn’t know the whole story.
This was a new twist for S.M. Reine. Normally she makes you hate or at the very least, strongly dislike a character from the start. Then she turns the tables and turns them into a character that you end up loving. Guess which way she went with Deadly Wrong? I don’t exactly hate Isobel since reading this book, but I lost a lot of respect for both her and Fritz.
Deadly Wrong may have been a short addition to the Preternatural Affairs series, but like I said, it changes things. For a lot of people. It’s going to make things interesting, especially where Cèasar is concerned. I feel like tracking him down and filling him in on the turn of events. Since that’s impossible I’ll just wait patiently for Ashes and Arsenic, the next book in the Preternatural Affairs series. I suppose that there’s still a small thread of hope that the author could turn things around and help these characters redeem themselves, but she’s got her work cut out for her.
