Sinner. Villain. Wicked.
The Prince of Envy has never claimed to be a saint. But when a cryptic note arrives, signaling the beginning of a deadly game, he knows it will take more than a hint of sin to win and save his falling demon court. Riddles, hexed objects, anonymous players, nothing will stand in his way, though none of his meticulous plans prepare him for her, the frustrating artist who ignites his sin like no other…
Virtuous. Darling. Liar.
The trouble with scoundrels and blackguards is that they haven’t a modicum of honor, a fact Miss Camilla Antonius learns after one desperate mistake allows Waverly Green’s most notorious rake to blackmail her. To avoid a ruinous scandal, Camilla is forced to enter a devil’s bargain with Envy, little expecting his game will awaken her true nature . . .
Together, Envy and Camilla must embark on a perilous journey through the Underworld—from glittering demon courts to the sultry vampire realm and beyond—while trying to avoid the most dangerous trap of all: falling in love.
Mini audiobook review: why so much sex in romantasy?
I liked but didn’t love it.
The spice was on overload and I get a bit tired to read romantasy with loads and loads of spice. I know many like it and that’s fine but I wished it was otherwise as that’s putting me off of some old favorite writers.
That being said, luckily, there is still a trope and a story but the pacing felt off sometimes.
It took me half the book to really fall into it.
But stop with the negativity, as all in all I liked to books so let’s get to what I liked:
-the world and the lore;
-the hidden identity;
-the hidden talent;
-the game and solving riddles;
-Camilla who is feisty and wants to be her own woman.
I have mixed feelings for Envy even if there is no denying that he is sexy and cares for Camilla.
All in all, I think I’ll read the other books in the series.
Thanks for reading.
