Format: Paperback
This book surprised me! The witty banter between charecters really made you feel like you knew them and the plain language made you want to know more. I hope there is a sequel. The personalities of each charecter are developed enough that I could imagine several stories and I want more.

The twists and turns keep you reading but the humorous throughout makes this read a winner! Give me more Stitch and Kat.

After listening to a few episodes of The Wicked Library, I decided to pick this bad boy up and give it a go. This book is absurd and bizarre in all the right ways - lots of twisted, black humor to keep the pages turning and remind you that maybe it's best to keep the demons in hell and the dead...well, dead. Nelson W. Pyles brings the gore, creeps, and laughs with this one and it is well worth the read. So, before you start thinking of searching for the Necronomicon and raising a little Hell yourself, consider this novel a fair warning....

After listening to a mini marathon of "The Wicked Library", I decided to give this a read. It did not disappoint. Hell, I couldn't put it down! Plans were nixed and friends were slightly peeved, but after finishing this I can honestly say it was worth it.

The dialogue flows beautifully, the story is gripping, and the characters are quite lovable. Which may seem sort of odd to say since, well, some are demonic. It's difficult to put into words without spoiling it, so I won't. I have a feeling Mr. Pyles is going to be someone to keep an eye out for in the future!

PICK THIS UP. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

It was British historian Sir John Dalberg-Acton who once wrote "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Beneath the cute title of `Demons, Dolls, & Milkshakes,' and the humorous approach to demonic fantasy, there is an underlying theme of power and corruption in Nelson W. Pyles's debut novel.
When a bullied teenager from New Jersey named Marty conjures a demonic spirit of the underworld to help him wreak vengeance upon his unsuspecting peers, he ends up getting more than he bargained for. And later, when an unsuspecting young woman in a Pittsburgh comic book shop bargains for an ugly doll, she ends up getting the discarded demon from Marty's failed conjuring.
Just like in a marriage, where you not only marry your spouse, but you also marry into your spouse's family, Marty didn't count on encountering a denizen of demons when he performed a sacred ritual to raise just one little devil and transport its essence into a rag doll named Stitch.
Demon Master Marty's goal of annihilating his classmates is soon side-tracked when his demon's demonic brother and his demonic love interest follow Stitch to the East Coast's version of hell on earth, specifically New Jersey. Marty soon realizes that both Stitch and his brother Azaziel are focused on having power over the demoness Lilith and ultimately taking over the demon god Cabal's netherworldly kingdom, while Lilith strikes back against everyone involved in the power grab, including a number of innocent human bystanders.
When Cabal enters the mix to be entertained by the back-stabbing demons, who he has purposely made emotionally unstable, poor Marty's world spirals out of control and he eventually learns the hard way that you just can't trust a demon.

I downloaded this book on my kindle and read it in one go. The pace and tone reminded me a little bit of Christopher Moore - darkly humorous and fast-moving. The kind of book you read to get yourself out of a bad mood. I laughed out loud a few times, which is always a little embarrassing when reading in public. While having a teenaged protagonist may broaden the appeal to include young adults, the author stays away from young adult fiction cliches and provides a more sophisticated narrative that will appeal to the grownup crowd.

Format: Kindle Edition
The most amazing part of this book, for me at least, was the relatability of the characters. Now, I may not be a unemployed, chain-smoking hot chick; nor am I a beat down, picked upon, high school angst-i-mo; nor am I a demon older than time trapped in a football-doll; but, even being vastly different from them all, I still found myself in love with the characters in this book and connected to them on a deeply sympathetic level. It's so easy for the reader to see a little bit of their own desires, needs, fears, and hopes peppered into all of the cast of characters that you can't help but feel yourself swept away in the troubles of their lives. You want to cry for them, protect them, laugh in their faces, avenge them, annnnd occasionally slap them for sighing too often (seriously... hasn't anyone ever told demons it's impolite to sigh and roll your eyes at people?)but the point it, this book makes you /feel/ it. All of it.

What's more, the level of humor has the kind of intelligent wit to it that makes you forget to feel bad for laughing at some of the situations they're in. The subtle hilarity Pyles keeps perfectly laced into every step offsets the seriously twisted darkness with such perfect balance that it never feels odd to be laughing even when you're truly terrified.

If you want a book that will keep your attention and have your emotions on a roller coaster the whole way while never once letting your mood sink to unrecoverable levels, this is definitely something you should read.
