Blackwell created a completely new world in such vivid detail you could see it and feel it, especially the creepy things. I found myself gritting my teeth, holding my breath or trying to read with one eye closed, waiting to see what would "appear" next. The cornfield scene will be one I NEVER forget (and now have added creepy cornfields to my list of fears!!) His imagination is dark and twisted yet somehow he effortlessly manages the suspension of disbelief -- not an easy feat, but he pulls it off better than most seasoned writers and makes it look easy.
There were surpises galore, fantastic three-dimensional characters and such quality writing that I never wanted it to end. In fact, as soon as I finished this one, I started back at A Soul to Steal (book 1 of the series) and its even better than the first two times I read it.
If you haven't read A Soul to Steal and Band of Demons, you MUST read them (in fact, you need to read them to get the full impact of this book), but really, you should read them all anyway because they are incredible. If you've been watching the new TV series, Sleepy Hollow, this series blows it away -- wish they would have turned the Sanheim Chronicles into a TV series instead!!!!!
I just can't say enough good things about this series. It will remain one of my all time favorite trilogies (in a world where trilogies have become a little (or a lot) tedious. Give the Devil His Due will NOT disappoint. Blackwell just gets better and better. I have no doubt he's going to have a long, illustrious career.
I can't wait to see where he takes us next!!
In BAND OF DEMONS we saw Kate and Quinn defend their title of The Prince of Sanheim against Elyssa and Sawyer. There was also a defining moment for Kate when she learned she could harness the power of the dead as a banshee. All the while, Kate and Quinn’s love for one another remained strong--even as Quinn was killed.
Now, GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE brings us what we never get to see from here in this world--a glimpse into hell and what lies beyond. Just because Quinn is technically dead and Kate is still alive, doesn’t mean their connection is lost. In fact, Kate not only has Quinn, the Headless Horseman and a banshee in her head, but also is mentally connected to Lord Halloween. Therefore it’s no surprise that when we meet her again, she has suffered a complete mental break.
However, Kate is not one to be messed with in any form she chooses to take. A brief stint in an institution can’t stop Kate Tassel. On the side of the living, Kate, Kieran (who is responsible for Quinn’s death but doesn’t stop his quest to make amends) and Tim, trusted friend and editor, have their hands full. They must plan to find some way to get to Quinn who is out there somewhere.
Quinn is indeed out there in what he thinks is hell and is actually the kingdom of Sanheim himself. He is scooped up from a fiery pit by his long-time friend Janus (also dead) and must make his way through a horrific landscape of challenging ghouls. Along the way, Quinn and Janus face many rivals: all scary, some familiar. As they fight Lord Halloween they begin to see that there may be others who can help them in this other world. Never does Quinn lose faith that he will see Kate again.
As Quinn’s growing crew assembles on the other side, Kate battles internally and externally as she tries to find a way to Quinn. When she manages to settle into her body again and gains some clarity, harnessing her powers makes her a force to be reckoned with. All the while, she knows that she will find a way to be with Quinn again. They will beat Sanheim together--they have to.
As we watch the journey that Quinn takes, first through a part of the other world created by Lord Halloween, (complete with animated killer scarecrows--creepy!) and later through the landscape of Ancient Ireland that Sanheim has sculpted as his domain, there is never a dull moment. As characters begin to surface that we have met before, we see a startling tale unfold.
When Kate and her group finally get to the portal they must open to be where Quinn now exists, an epic battle must take place between the evil Sanheim and the Prince of Sanheim (Kate and Quinn) with all their armies in tow. All the while, more and more shocking details are revealed that will keep readers turning pages in excited disbelief.
This third book in THE SANHEIM CHRONICLES is a masterfully crafted story that ties in all the pieces from the first two parts. Not only are Sanheim and his followers finally confronted face to face by Quinn and Kate, they are seen in a whole new light... or darkness depending on which side you are watching from.
GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE is a nonstop roller-coaster ride through a creepy world where the underlying theme of the chronicles becomes clearer on each page: You are what you fear. Thinking about this in real life may give us the heebie-jeebies but for Kate and Quinn it will be the key to their salvation. Now they just have to take out Sanheim and his legion of evil. Can they do it? Read on and see--you will not be disappointed!
