Today's review is on The Devil is a Gentleman by J.L. Murray
Devil is a Gentleman is the second book in the Niki Slobodian series,
and though I enjoyed it very much, I wanted to see more in the way of
Niki's relationship with Sam. I mean, am I the only one that wants
these two to get together? It's all there, I can see it coming; I
think. I just don't want to wait to book four to get there.
book two picks up right where we left our heroine. Hating her father
for what he had become, but loving him just the same. But did she
really know her father? In Gentleman, Niki finds out the truth about
her him when she learns about The Blood.
The Blood is a group of
twelve powerful individual's that even Sam want's Niki to avoid. But
when the person responsible for The Registry, the one man who ruined
your life, comes to you, an "abby" for help, how can you NOT get
involved. It's only when Niki learns about how her father and her
sister were treated, and continue to be treated by The Blood, does she
begin to understand why Sasha did what he did.
But there's a war
brewing. A war between Heaven and Hell, and Niki's actions will bring
the deciding factor into play. Will Niki's "do-gooderness" win out in
the end? We'll have to wait for book three to actually find out.
Gentleman is NOT a stand alone book. You will understand the overall
concept better if you read the first book; Between the Devil and the
Deep Blue Sea, first. My only complaint is that I would really like to
see a bit more romance for Niki. (I vote for Sam, just in case you're
