I will admit that the ending feels kind of rushed and a little vague. However, knowing how Jay writes I have no doubt he'll make it up to us in the second book.
Jay Gordon does an outstanding job of weaving together these characters from multiple faiths, and abilities into a story involving mysticism, love, friendship, evil, the occult, death and danger. As I did with A Light in the Darkness: Things that Go Bump in the Night, I fell in love with his main characters. They relate to each other the way we wish people would. Even with their flaws, tragedies and challenges they represent the best of humanity, but not everyone is who they seem.
Jay's books don't follow a straight line. As he did in Light in the Darkness: Things that Go Bump in the Night, Jay's plot twists and turns, leading the reader through a well designed maze of events that kept me glued to the page wondering where he'd lead me next.
Affection is easily given and received between the characters and though most of the sexual encounters are referenced, some are described. All sexual encounters are m/m.
I highly recommend Devil's Gambit and if you enjoy this book, definitely check out A Night in the Darkness: Things that Go Bump in the Night.
This is more of a rant though about the Print Edition's handling by Amazon.
I'm an avid Jay Gordon reader and have 2 copies of his first book. One to lend and one to keep. Both came in pristine condition.
This book however Amazon can't seem to get their shipping issues fixed no matter what I do. - I ordered it June 17, and by the time it arrived on the 19th the spine had been crushed and the corners were bent terribly. I went through the web chat and complained, on top of leaving packaging feedback and I was assured the replacement would be in perfect condition. I asked to make sure that it was sent in a BOX and not a flimsy little Manila Envelope. Surprise! The next one comes in worse condition than the first. I called in, asked for the same packaging change and they assured me even more this time that it would be corrected and I'd receive a perfectly pristine copy.
As you can guess that didn't happen. Amazon is 3/3 on this one - each time sending it with too little protection. I'll ask Jay if he has any suggestions and add it to my review.
