Weeeeeeell... This IS Sam we're talking about, after all..
WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES
Oh my. Unbeknownst to Sam, our lucky little gate-tossing imp has really set events in motion. The Ancients are awake and to make matters worse, an old not-so-deceased adversary is back with a vengeance and said being just happens to be the catalyst who highlights a rather disastrous oversight in a certain 2.5 million old angelic treaty;-)
... ANOTHER DOOR OPENS...
As the unwilling Queen of the Fallen, Sam takes it upon herself to investigate rumors of a second rebellion as well as tracking down a demonic Low-snatcher that has her household in an uproar.
I've been wanting to meet other Ancients for some time now, to see how the banishment has influenced them. I was not disappointed. No, they're not all as homicidal as Ahriman; some are hilariously, batshit crazy, others tragically twisted versions of themselves. One in particular has a huge secret. Yuuuge! In fact, he might just hold the one thing that could restore them to their rightful place...
True to form, though, there's still plenty of fun to be had, even in the midst of impending doom.
Like the Ancient Revered One's born-day party. Who knew a bowl of kale could start such an epic fight;-)
There are a few nods to two Imp World boks in Queen of the Damned. If you've read them you'll likely suspect WHY poor (mwahaha) Nils "ran into a door", Gabe has no choice but accept an unorthodox new member of the Ruling Council, or Rafi is able to cough up an unaffiliated young angel to fill the final open seat. If you haven't... (you're missing out) but fear not, you'll have fun discovering what the archangelic brothers have been up to behind Sam's back as she uncovers the shocking truth;-)
With only one more installment to go, the Imp series is drawing to a close. (Why, og why!??) Queen of the Damned reunites people we've met in previous installments and we learn what's been going on in their lives. Friends and foes alike. Unexpectedly, I even felt sympathy for one of these previous foes - and not only that - said foe unexpectedly leaves a lasting legacy for Sam and Gregory to care for. Knowing Sam I'm happy that FICO scores don't apply to these ... beings... What a life-saver, lol! Speaking of foes... There is ONE being that's been haunting us with his ever-present non-presence for 9 books now, and no I'm not talking of Santa;-) Bet you know who I'm referring to, huh? All I can say is: Nope, not gonna say it! That would be a spoiler:-P
Bottom line: This book was everything I hoped for - and more. I don't even care that's there is a cliffhanger at the end.
I may not be a greed demon, but my possessiveness certainly reaches demonic levels when it comes to Sam & Co. They're all mine. MINE! (Word of Power, anyone!?) I can't believe I have to wait a whole year for the last one. Oh well, time to practice the virtue of patience and repeat the mantra "She who waits for something good (or gloriously bad - in all the right ways) never waits too long" until it sticks in my greedy little brain.
War is coming or so the Ancients believe. Sam is trying to stop the showdown. She is trying her best to get the Angels, demons and Ancients to try to work out a peaceful long term solution. So of course, all goes down the toilet with a quick flush.
Sam, as we all know by now, has a soft heart and it totally gets her up to her neck in all sorts of problems including Angel babies! The 30th chapter had me laughing, tears running down my face and hiccuping trying to stop. Debra Dunbar did herself proud for sure. Ummm she left us with a cliffhanger though!
Can't wait for book 10!!! Keep the series rolling for sure.
Kathy Barber Doyle - 1/23/2018
but the other demons haven't taken it any more seriously than she
has. After all, she's just an Imp which is barely above a "Low"
in the demon pecking order, and the Sword of the Iblis is semi-sentient
and generally disinclined to back her up. Now however, she may
finally have to make her title real: She has managed, inadvertently,
to get the angels locked out of Aaru (Heaven, more or less), and a
demon army led by the Fallen is poised to take it back. Secure at
last in her relationship with the angel "Gregory" and with a household
that depends on her, Sam is putting on her big girl panties and
stepping up. Heaven help us.
I continue to think the Imp books, especially these in the main series
which focuses on Sam are Dunbar's strongest. Sam has come a long way
and finally has grown up, but that doesn't mean she has moved beyond
chaos (After all, she's an Angel of Chaos now) either in dishing it
out or reveling in it. I do think we are at the end game now -- the
gun that was on the mantle at the start of the series is about to
be fired, and the world may change more fundamentally than just having
stray elves and mermaids running around.
Let's face it, nobody has a more interesting perspective on the human condition than Sam. Her irrepressible curiosity has lead her into situations that no imp probably ever contemplated before. And in the process she became much more than just an imp. Now, as the only redeemed Angel of Chaos, she juggles ruling council meetings, non-credit-worthy humans, werewolves, nephilim, her demon household, her angel sweetie, a growing family, and, oh yea, there's that whole leader of Hel thing that she's been putting off. But now that the angels are locked out of Aaru, Hel, of course, raises its ugly head and won't be ignored or put off any longer. So, despite the incredible amount of personal growth Sam has experienced since the start of the series, she now has to figure out how to do Sam as the leader of Hel. Luckily for her, she has Michael cheering her on and her household in her corner, even if they are mostly just a bunch of lows. The result is a type of leadership that's uniquely Sam, because Sam doesn't do order, chaos is her thing. *ARC received*
