Devil Days in Deadwood

Devil Days in Deadwood by Ann Charles 
Deadwood #11
Kindle Edition, 410 pages
Published May 29th 2020 by Ann Charles

Violet Parker knows better than to play with devils. They always cheat, especially when lives are at stake. Deadwood’s charming, troublemaking, and soul-sucking devils are no different, and they’re biting at her heels.

But the clock is ticking and Violet has no choice—she must risk her life to save her treasured Aunt Zoe. With any luck, she might be able to trick the devils and beat the old terrors at their own game. If not, Deadwood could end up short one Executioner.

“Executioners don't duck, they swing.” ~ Violet Parker

My thoughts about Devil Days in Deadwood ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"'What dumbass thought catching an Hungarian devil made of smoke and shadow was a good idea?'"

Oh my gosh! With an opening line like that one, you just know the rest of the book is going to be one crazy ride. And believe me it, definitely was an exciting one. I absolutely love this series and I'm forever amazed at the dramatic and creative story-lines that Ann comes up with for each book. What will she think of next? 

Devil Days in Deadwood has maybe become one of my favorites in this whole series. I just absolutely loved everything about it. The ongoing and quirky relationships were at their peak. I can't count how many times I laughed out loud, such hilarious characters. Then the dangers that Violet's profession puts them all in was exciting, as well as being a bit scary. And in the end, everyone works together to defeat the bad guys..... for now. There are always more waiting in the wings. 

I have a love/hate relationship with the endings of Ann's books. She leaves the reader in a dramatic situation but always promises that there will be more coming, we just need to be patient. But it is so hard!! 

I am a huge fan of this whole series and I'm always recommending them to anyone and everyone who will listen to me. Check it out!
