Marked by Hell is an engaging first installment of this series. I could hardly put this book down but when I had to my fingers were itching to get back to and find out what happens next. I absolutely love that the author still has Mary working out the mechanics of being or at least pretending to be human. She doesn't quite understand the emotions and feelings that people get and why they do certain things but thanks to a little unwanted help from the demons she gets a clue or two and begins to piece things together. She can be a bit automaton at times but I like that she cares for and about her assistant especially when she, Mary, gets into a couple situations and she tries to make sure that the girl knows she's okay.
There were a couple spelling errors in here but other than that I really loved this book. It really flowed well for me and I loved how realistic some of the characters were in how they acted and reacted. There is just the right touch of humor in this book and I love the budding romance that is going on. Not a lot but just enough to pull you in and keep things moving forward. Needless to say...I want more!!!!!
In my opinion this book is a great start to a brand new series by this talented author and I cannot wait for more books about Mary Wiles. I know they are going to be a real blast for sure. If you're a fan of this author and considering this book I say get it and get it now! It's a great deal and you will not be disappointed. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!!!
Mary hunts down demons and sends them back to Hell. She makes a living as a PI and being a specialist for the PD. There's been several murders of young woman and Mary is called to help. Mary's going undercover and Trisha takes her shopping for dresses. Mary has no idea why humans are so interested in clothing. That's when Sid knows she's hot and Mary gets the strange feelings. The demons get Mary and it's not just lower level demons is also one bad ass Asmodeus the demon of lust. Now, in heaven if you want a child you paired up and have one, so Mary has no idea what lust, sex and love us all about. She's kidnapped but she gets away, killing only a few of the demon ring that are killing virgin's. Mary has her first lustful feeling when Sid comes and gets her. Her first kiss that has her wanting more. In the mean time Asmodeus does the wrong thing and takes Trisha. Mary and Sergeant Thompson go after her. I can say that's when some of Mary's pass comes out and that's when Trisha finds out Mary's an angel. Mary finds out that love hurts. The story has just begun and Mary Wiles is a fantastic character. I can't wait to read the next book.
In Marked by Hell, Miriam, aka Mary, is what we would expect an angel on earth to be: naive, inexperienced sexually, and frantic to get back upstairs. She came to earth to rescue a friend, possibly a future lover, but instead lost her wings. Mary works as a detective who subs for the police, and most of her jobs have been catching cheating spouses. However, Thompson (police chief) asks for her aid in a murder investigation, and she immediately realizes that demons are involved.
Is this original? Maybe not, but I didn’t get deja vue.
Is there a mishmash of faeries, witches, vampires, etc, etc, etc? No. There are demons and witches.
Do we have to slog through poor spelling and syntax? Yes, but not as much as usual. I sometimes hit a speed bump and have to reinterpret a sentence here and there, but I would rather thank my excellent English instructors than skip a well-designed story.
Is this a poorly-disguised excuse for sex? NO. It is a fantastic story, but expect some sexual elements that match the premise. It is well-done. I love sexual scenes that are appropriate to the story but not drawn out into chapters of lurid detail.
Is there romance between opponents? (I love that theme). Yes, possibly.
Would I recommend it? Oh, heck yes. I paid for it ahead of time, and I don't regret the purchase. I am buying the next one, too.
