What Vicky has done is extraordinary. She has written a story that reads as though it were written by an established, best-selling author. The story is so good, the writing style is first class, the timing and flow of the story didn't drag one time, and it did what all great books do: it leaves you wanting more.
Lilith is a demon who lives in the body of Annette Anderson, a kick ass demon slayer who has sworn to protect the humans from the underword of demons, vampires and the like, while at the same time promising to protect the existence of the demon world from humans. Lilith, who has lived in the body of Annette for almost a hundred years, is a pain to the lifestyle of Annette, but the two have worked hard to co-exist.
This is a wonderful adventure that jumps back and forth between the demon world and the human world. Limbert's characters are perfect: some you absolutely love and cheer for, others you despise and hope they die. Can't ask for better than that.
Move over all you fantasy , vampire, and demon writer. Victoria Limbert is ready to take her rightful place amongst the best of you. I truly finshed the book craving a sequel. I can't wait to see what happens to Annette and Lilith.
Limbert didnt just hit a home run with Lilith. She hit a grand slam in the final game of the World Series.
Ms. Limbert quickly weaves visual descriptions of demons, spells, and magic that pull the reader right in from the beginning. I often found myself reluctant to put my kindle down. The prose flows well across the pages and it is clear Ms. Limbert is a skilled writer.
Unfortunately, there were a few things that prevented me from giving the book five stars. For one, there is a preponderance of repetition in the use of adjectives to describe the non-physical characteristics of the demon world. Reading the words "lust, pain, sex" over and over again made me a bit numb to it by the end of the book. It made the otherwise colorful and entrancing demons a bit one-dimensional.
Also, I was a bit thrown off by Annette's continual condescension to human males throughout the story. In nearly every scene where her primary interaction is with humans, she continuously thinks and speaks about how they could never understand what is going on, and how all of their conclusions are wrong. The way in which she does this, true or not, comes across as venomous which I found a bit off-putting (being a human male myself). The tone does not carry over to demonic males, and so I suspect this is an intentional choice that just had its volume turned up too high for my tastes. It made the otherwise likable Annette a bit narcissistic.
Despite this, the story is so involving that I was pulled right out of these moments back into the real juice that keeps the tale building to the climactic end. I'm not normally a reader of paranormal urban fantasy, but I really enjoyed Lilith. I highly recommend it for all fans of the urban fantasy, paranormal, and occult genres.
Without giving away spoilers, the heroine, Annette shares her mind with the soul of the powerful and legendary demon, Lilith. The author does an amazing job of showing us what Annette goes through, sometimes arguing with her demonic half, and other times unable to prevent Lilith from becoming dominant. You can really feel and empathize with this complicated relationship. I can't overstate how deep and intriguing the author makes this, never falling into the trap of a cliched possession.
The book is filled with a fascinating cast of demons, mostly in human form, but Limbert treats us to glimpses of their real and terrifying bodies. These descriptions are rich and grotesque, but not overdone, so that I never felt desensitized to the horror. I'd hate to be blase about these nasty demons! Very Lovecraftian in a way. Each demon has a distinct personality, brought to life in a memorable way with strong character traits and dialog. I can easily imagine that the demonic underworld is a place of constant political battles and jostling for power, and I'd love to read more about this.
The book is well plotted, smoothly paced, never boring and comes to a suitably epic and satisfying climax. As other reviewers have pointed out, there is sex, pain and torture, but I found the psychological horror more disturbing (in an entertaining way, if you know what I mean) than the physical descriptions. These are not wishy washy (and dare I say "sparkly") demons - they play rough, and so they should.
Limbert is working on a sequel I believe, and it's going to be a must-read for me. If this debut book is anything to go by, Limbert is headed for a very successful writing career.
