This series is very complex and you have to pay attention but luckily the author refreshes you in the beginning. You MUST read the first two books before you read this one. It has so many interwoven plots and twists and turns but it is and absolutely amazing read.

HD Smith has me liking characters I couldn't stand in other books and Jack... oh Jack. That is all I'm going to say about that. The Devil's Assistant is my favorite series. Watching Claire develop from the assistant to The Boss to what she is now... amazing.

I highly recommend this series and I'm going to do a reread before book 4 comes out.

I really enjoyed this installment of the Devils assistant Series. As always, the world building was excellent. The characters are developing in very interesting ways and the story is very engaging. The story is a third installment, and really is not a standalone.

I first learned of HD Smith because she and I attended the same romance readers conference. I would not describe this series as Romance. It falls more into urban paranormal fiction. Notwithstanding, although I prominently read romance, I have found these books to be very engaging. I will definitely continue to purchase books from this series!

Dark Forsaken by H.D Smith is the third novel in the Devil’s Assistant series. After the second novel, the story picks up with Claire, the presumptive queen of the fourth realm, having been tasked with a job before she can return to her realm and her people. After the death of the curator of the museum of the four realms, it is her job to meet with every candidate that presents themselves for an interview and to select one to replace the old curator. The rulers of the other three realms are reluctant to have her succeed. In addition to this dull job, the other rulers, Boss, Mab, and Harry, call her in to deal with growing unrest in the underworld, developing supposedly at the hands of her Fallen followers. Together with the Quads, or four half demon siblings that Claire claimed as her followers from the big three with whom she has a mutual dislike and mistrust, she must attempt to resolve this issue. To top it all off, she must find and deal with the other contenders for the Fall throne. If she fails she will either lose her throne or her life.

I loved this novel as much as the first two. It is a fantastic story and the complexity and great characters make it shine. As before, I liked Claire’s attitude toward the magical world. Now, she has to grow into her ruler position and this requires adjusting her behavior and attitude toward the big three, the rulers of the other realms, and the four Quads. She has become more suspicious, also recognizes that she has to also start to trust some people to survive. She is finally is embracing her position in the magical world, but still has a lot to learn. The story picked up well from the last novel and provides a decent amount of backstory to make it not too confusing if the reader hasn’t read the first two in the series.

My Thoughts:

As many of you who follow my reviews will remember, way back in the summer of 2014, I took a chance on a review request from a new-to-me author and her upcoming paranormal series at the time. I took a chance on an unknown and was absolutely blown away at the results. Dark Hope showed me everything an indie author could give and blew the doors wide open on my thoughts on the conventions of the genre. It's been many months and reads since that first novel and I still hold nearly all paranormal novels I review to the high standards that HD Smith set!

Could Smith still ignite that spark after three novels?

It's been over a year since I was immersed into the very intricate world of HD Smith and The Devil's Assistant. I won't lie, while this series is a favorite of mine, they are not easy to keep on top of. More characters than I could possibly name and settings and plot cycles that mirror a high fantasy series, this series is truly a testament to a writing style such as Smith's. While the casual reader can certainly enjoy this series, it will take a keen eye and devotion to truly follow this story. That being said, I was so thankful that Smith included a glossary and 'recap' of sorts into the beginning of the novel. Without it, I certainly would have been lost. It took a few chapters, but once I dove back in and found myself surrounded by the world Smith created, I couldn't look back. The story came back to me like an old friend and I was ready to tackle Claire's latest adventure.

And what an adventure it was!

I have to say that Dark Forsaken ended up being my favorite in the series thus far! And that's saying a whole lot. The stakes are higher than they've ever been.

I'm really enjoying this series. I wader across the first two in audio book form and was happily surprised. (The author said this will be out on audio too although she doesn't have a date.) There are really only 2 little negatives about the book.
1- its a complex story with a lot of world and character building. Its been at least a few months since I read the other two, so I had forgotten quite a bit. The author did provide a character recap in the beginning of the book, which was nice.
2- It was too short! :) It wasn't novella short but it didn't seem as long as the first two, and when the story is good you want a good long book. That didn't detract in any way from the story though!
