Closing the hellmouth after the devil and his demons escaped on dragonback might not have been the best idea. With an enemy in possession of her body, Sere Mal-Laurette will have to cast her soul back to hell if she hopes to put both dimensions back in order.
Time is quickly running out for Sere to save the world. Marjory Laroque has all that she needs to create her immortal army. Even worse, Aloysius is now in full devil form and ready for Marjory to possess.
Sere’s plan to thwart the powerful woman goes horribly off course when Marjory takes possession of Sere’s body instead of that of the hapless devil she created. With Sere’s soul forced back into the computer that spawned her, the devil’s daughter finds no other option but to follow the link back to hell. If she can cut Marjory’s army off at the source of its power, she might still have a chance of saving the world.
Marjory’s army of goblins and half-baked dragons do their best to intercept Sere in hell, but the badass doppelgänger girl has a few tricks up her sleeve for battling them. Getting back out of hell, however, proves far more complex than Sere imagined, requiring the help of not only those she loves but also those she mistrusts. The price for their help will test the limits of Sere’s humanity.
*sigh* Another great series has come to an end. I had no idea what to expect from The Devil’s Daughter when I first picked up Hell in a Head Gasket, but once I started, it was obvious I was destined to be hooked.
The description gives readers a pretty good idea of what Sere’s up against in this final battle, but the emotions that come into play in Hell and Back caught me totally off guard. Totally. Sere gained some interesting allies and there were times that she wasn’t quite sure who she could and couldn’t trust. Through it all, there was one constant – Bart. There were some pretty close calls, but he always had her back.
This series is full of interesting characters and they all play a major roll. None of them are perfect. Most of them have been together for a very long time. Some I may never really like, but they all add another layer to the story.
I’m always just a little sad when a series I love comes to an end. Although that’s the case with The Devil’s Daughter, I can’t complain about the way G.A. Chase wrapped things up – but kinda left things open? I could be wrong, but I don’t think we’ve seen the end of this group of characters. For now, I still have plenty of catching up to do with the Malveaux Curse Mystery series 😉
