I love to read about new worlds, and this book introduced me to a whole new take on our current the our earthly existence. I know I'm coming late to this genre, and with low expectations too, but the author did well to ease me in.
I don't know if this book has gone through a professional editor, but it sure felt like it had. I found next to no mistakes in it and never felt that scenes needed cutting or rearranging. This is such a rare thing these days. I will say the formatting could do with a bit more work, but as that can be fixed in the future, and I did enjoy this book so much, I just had to give it five stars.
Unfortunately, the book isn’t consistent. IMO, the demon plot is weak. I believe the author missed an opportunity for a gritty story about the struggle between good and evil. Instead, she depicts evil as good people, from a bad place.
However, the novel earns five stars for its erotic content. Here the writer soars above her otherwise frequently ordinary prose. And it’s not simply a matter of describing acts. KT builds unusual scenes that create anxiety and curiosity, such as where Mercy, desperate for company, picks up a bar fly. She did a brilliant job showing the encounter’s awkwardness, and how it evolved into something Mercy didn’t expect. Scenes like these enable readers to experience what most books are about, enjoying a fantasy from the safe distance of the page. If your primary intention is to read erotica, then I highly recommend the Demon’s Apprentice.
The author shows her true colors when she describes the victim’s age, religious beliefs, and maturity. It might be that the author regrets some of the wasted opportunities she left behind at college and wants her protagonists to make up for it.
Some phrasing seemed contrived and unnecessarily complicated; ground her ass into the mattress and let a moaning sigh whisper from her lips. Where else do you sigh, moan, and whisper, all at once? She forgot to breathe, not breath. She allowed a small trickle his energy to enter her. Missing, of. These tiny errors grate when the rest of the book is edited so well. I understood Nephilim to be heroes of the old world and warriors, not some kind of hybrid angel/demon/succubus/human entity.
The Story of Mercy appears out of nowhere and it is a long time before we see where it is going in relation to the demonic characters. Page 87 and we learn about the deserted sex shop; at last, a mystery! A connection!
The book continued with several episodic scenes, somewhat disconnected and making no overall connection or sequence. Some of the scenes seem to have been added simply as word fillers. The sex was somewhat formulaic after the first instance and I found is repetitive. I skipped most of the details from then on since they were all the same or similar.
Overall I found the story less than believable since I am an atheist but that does not detract from the central theme of good and evil as applied to heaven and hell. If I was a Christian believer, the story might well resonate more for me. I’m glad Mercy made up her mind and became a success at what she is evidently best at!
I liked all of the characters in the novel, and my favorite was the vaping demon and his rants and vaping in hell. I'm a vaper and I was cracking up laughing. The sex scenes were well written with great prose and descriptions. We got to see a mousy church girl evolve to kind of a human succubus hybrid and all of her scenes were great
