Not Even Death Keeps a Good Demoness Down

There’s never an end to the crazy when you’re demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt’s complaining. She’s been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit one soul at a time. Life is good.

Until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she’s taking lives instead of saving them. Which is kind of a problem when you’re a nurse. As if that weren’t bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all--Matt’s ex Brenda is back, and she’s brought the Apocalypse with her.

Faith’s not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what’s a demoness supposed to do? Besides take matters into her own hands, of course.

Book 3 has more action than the first two books combined.Everything that has been stewing comes to a head and no one is left unaffected. After a crazy accident Faith becomes the new Angel of Death. As everyone scrambles to figure a way for her to get out of it, another is intent on taking it away from her at all costs. You would think that would be good thing but this person wants it for pure evil.

Faith has a pretty unique life, she thinks she wants her relationships with people to be normal but when she gets normal all she can think about is getting back to the way things were. All you Matt and Faith fans will be happy with the way things develop in BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOUR DEAD. Faith and her family are a hoot. They give you plenty of chances to laugh with and at them. They love each other, their really close and it shows. Most of book 3 does end up being pretty series but they still find chances to insert their special brand of humor.

The Speak of the Devil series has been a crazy ride that I have enjoyed from the first chapter of the first book. Wish it wasn't over but I enjoyed the way it ended. Start from book 1 and enjoy the roller coaster!

I gave it 4/5 stars
