I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Given a second chance, music journalist Dawn Emerson and guitarist Sage Knightly are reunited, only to have their lives threatened again by a demonic bargain. The sequel to THE DEVIL’S METAL, from USA Today bestselling author Karina Halle.
When Dawn Emerson got the chance to go on tour with her favorite metal band, Hybrid, she thought she landed the writing gig of the century. But what started off as a dream for the budding music journalist quickly turned into a nightmare that she and guitarist Sage Knightly barely escaped alive.
Now, months after they went their separate ways, Sage invites Dawn to accompany him on his first solo tour across Europe and write about it for Creem Magazine. But like the last tour, nothing is as easy as it seems. Sage is a broken man on the path to self-destruction and Dawn isn’t sure if she’s the right person to save him. And aside from having to pick up the pieces of their burgeoning relationship, they have to negotiate the mysterious new photographer assigned to Dawn’s story, as well as vindictive promoters and demonic groupies they thought they’d never see again.
Because this time, it’s Dawn who made a deal with the devil and the only thing worse than having to uphold a bargain with the prince of darkness is not remembering how you’re supposed to pay it back.
It may be with their souls.
My name is Sage Knightly. One of the few surviving members of the metal band, Hybrid.
I’m about to embark on my first solo tour, to be the rock star I was always supposed to be.
But something tells me I’m not coming out of this alive.
And neither is she.
I am in LOVE with this book. The Devil’s Reprise is told in dual POV between Sage Knightly, one of the surviving members of the now defunct Hybrid, and Dawn Emerson, the redheaded Creem magazine journalist.
After the events that transpired in The Devil’s Metal, Sage is now embarking on his solo tour throughout Europe, and he has invited Dawn to cover the festivities yet again.
But a happy reunion between these two former lovers is hard to come by between Sage’s “method” of coping, evil lurking in the shadows (and the bathroom!) and other forces destined to harm them.
This sequel had everything I wanted and more. Strong character development, plenty of terrifying moments that left me on the edge of my seat, and some sexy scenes that left me feeling fevered and in need of a smoke.
I missed Noelle, and Robbie from Hybrid, but the addition of Max filled that void. The Ginger Elvis lives on. Plus, Jacob ::Tear:: I just love him and his presence in Sage and Dawn’s lives.
If you’re looking for something sexy but with substance then you need to pick up this series. The scenery, dialogue, haunts, and development of The Devil’s Metal and The Devil’s Reprise make this a 5 star “must read” series for me.
