Cat O'Nine really did write some fantastic details in this book. This is still a good versus evil plot, but it is also so much more than that. This book is filled to the brim with darkness and it is done in such a beautiful way. There was more than "meets the eye" to these characters, and for a change the angels were more deep than I've ever read angels to be. They had layers.
Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I'm big on vocabulary, and I was very excited to find a few words in this book that I was unfamiliar with. The book was well written and quite descriptive; I enjoyed the movie that plaid on the screen of my mind as I read. There is also one character who I just fell in love with and couldn't help but to have a little giggle when I encountered him and couldn't stop myself from smiling at the cleverness of Cat O'Nine for his creation. You'll know who I'm talking about once you read the book, and you really should.
I pride myself in being ahead of the game, and constantly guessing the next plot twist, but that is pretty impossible with this book. Nothing that happens is expected. In addition, the author has developed characters that you want to love, despite the fact that they are the bad guy. The only suggestion I have for the potential buyer is that you don't leave this book on the coffee stand. Trust me when I tell you, this is NOT a coffee table book. The subject matter is pretty taboo, which adds so much to the appeal! However, should you possess an open mind, and a literary sense of adventure, this book is just right for you!
Having said that, let me also tell you that the writer is a friend of mine. How did we become friends? This book.
In late 2012, Cat followed my Twitter handle @ShitZombiesSay and DM'd me a link to the first iteration of this book. I needed a new read for the weekend and I took the bait. I read it non-stop despite some copy-editing errors in the first 10 pages that would normally have stopped me from going further. The story telling was THAT GOOD. (*Those errors I mentioned have been corrected)
I'm a professional writer, copy editor, and omnivorous reader. I can't remember the last time the word-craft of a new author jolted me. I was so stunned by the brilliant command of language and story telling I DM'd her back on Twitter and told her I wanted to talk to her on the phone and offer some constructive editorial criticism and commentary. I also wanted to encourage her wholeheartedly to KEEP 'em coming!
This woman is one of the smartest tale-teller's I've read in a long time. She's not only smart, but she is a natural at writing. That is phenomenally rare. This is amazing work for someone right out of the gate. With each book she's honing her skills. Expect big works to come from Cat. Follow her on Twitter @Cat_ONine
"Brilliant!" "Steamy as hell." "Great Story!" "Excellent read!" "Vivid" "... not for the faint of heart!" "... most well-written and original book ... I have read in years." "Characters ... well developed ... totally draw you into their world." "... excellent flow." [Cat has] " ... a rare ability ...." "[She] understands how to write." "The story mixes horror that actually was scary and erotica that was actually sexy." "...fantastic details in this book." "...the angels were more deep than I've ever read angels to be. They had layers."
Paranormal, supernatural, the dark edges of our dreams is my genre. I favor female writers because of the pure heat that they bring to the erotic and unbridled sex in their stories. But where some of these writers get a bit boring in their repeated pages of sex, Cat never "repeats". Each occurrence is unique, each occurrence is arousing, and as one reviewer stated (paraphrased) is damn hard to read her book with two hands. Think about it.
"Devil In The Details (Book Of Lucifer)" hooked me from the first page. I honestly could not put it down, although at times I wanted to, because it is disturbing - as a great book of this genre should be! It definitely left me wanting more and I am eagerly awaiting Book II!
This book does contain mature subject matter, so it is not appropriate for underage readers. With that one caveat, I would highly recommend "Devil In The Details (Book Of Lucifer)" to anyone who enjoys a thrillingly dark supernatural read!

I really don't want to spoil anything, and the official synopsis will start you off better than I anyway, but suffice to say throughout the story I could vividly "see" scenes (some of which I feel may come to mind for years to come in daydreams, or random thoughts) some of these - I WILL try to give nothing away - were set in simple places like Diners or Church, but the dialogue and the contrast in the people was stark and thought provoking. I found my views on good and evil challenged in many aspects of life, the question of submission and intense, erotic desire coupled with towering guilt were also the mental roller-coaster turns I experienced. At times I felt bludgeoned by what I was experiencing, and loved the beating in spite of myself.
The only question for me is should I start the second book (I have already bought it) or rather re-read and glutton myself in this world again. I'm afraid to start book two as I may want a book 3 immediately - which I really hope there will be.
Highly recommended but certainly not for the faint of heart - or mind!
