Review: The Devil's Metal

Tuesday 15 October 2013
The Devil's Metal The Devil's Metal by Karina Halle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Everyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with Karina Halle and I love everything she writes. Having loved “The Artists Trilogy” and still loving the “Experiment in Terror” books I couldn’t wait to read her new “Devils” series.

Did I enjoy it, abso-bloody-lutely!!!! It’s another brilliant storyline from Karina Halle and this time centres around an up and coming music journalist, Dawn Emerson, and the band she loves, Hybrid. After finding herself bagging the ultimate job, travelling with Hybrid and writing a review of their latest tour, Dawn finds herself embedded in something mysterious which is affecting the band and which appears to be directly linked to band member Sage Knightly.

As the tour progresses and strange occurrences continue, Dawn begins to suspect something more than bad luck has attached itself to the band and determined to understand more she starts to put the pieces together only to uncover the truth. Dawn has to decide whether she will stay and be part of the unfolding events or turn her back on Hybrid and more importantly Sage who has captured her heart.

This is a fast paced storyline with a rather nice relationship which develops between Dawn and Sage which looks to continue into book 2 in the series, The Devil’s Reprise. The supporting cast are an interesting mix of human and non-human characters who each have a part to play in the unfolding events.

This story is based in the 1970s and with all the band talk, I found myself reacquainting myself with some serious tunes from the back in day.

The Devil’s Reprise (book 2) is already live so enjoy this and rush on over to get your teeth into the second book in the series.
