First of all, the cover of this book is striking. I really like it. It's clean yet eye-catching. We should never judge a book by its cover, but I just had to make a note about how much I like this book's cover. I know how hard it is to design a beautiful cover, so kudos, Ayse Hafiza. You've done a lovely job.
This book follows the story of Jessassah the Demon as she goes about London influencing humans to make decisions that will negatively affect their lives. She chooses people who are already in bad headspaces or who have already made bad choices in their lives. She's a predator who thrives on the pain of others.
What I liked about this book is that it's a look into the nature of humanity. Why human's make the choices we do. Yes, Hafiza uses a supernatural take to propel the plot, but at the core of the story, it's a look into the human psyche. She uses Jessassah to tell human stories, and I really appreciated that.
I also really liked how Jessassah goes into every encounter believing she's going to destroy the lives of whomever she's influencing, but that isn't always the case. That was a cool twist. It was a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
There were some minor typographical errors in this book that drew me out of the story a few times, so it could use another round of editing. Other than that, this is a pretty fun and interesting read.

This was a quick but intriguing read!
This novel follows the demon Jassassah in a day of her life. What I loved about this demon novel is that she wasn't making deals with humans as one would expect. No, she is the tiny voice in your head when you are susceptible to influence.
She finds those people that she can nudge into sin, and usually she does a good job. She recounts her other exploits, such as Sweeny Todd and being the reason for the world wars. But what is intriguing about this is that even though she pushes people into sin, some of these "sins" turn out well.
What was also intriguing was how each person she influenced ended up leading her to her next victim. Plus, she is the first demon I've read about that is competitive, but doesn't want to be in Hell.
I can't wait for the next installment.
If you haven't read any of Ayse Hafiza's stories, do so today - I think you'll be impressed.
London has a long history and seems appropriate as the place where demons and assorted monsters would take up residence.
