Publisher's Summary

Samantha Martin is an imp, bound by an angel who allows her to live among the humans...as long as she follows his rules. It's never easy for an imp to follow the rules, especially now that Sam's brother, Dar, has found himself in hot water. He needs her help to retrieve an artifact from the vampires, or the powerful demon he owes a favor to will enslave and torture him for centuries. It should be a simple courier job, but with demons nothing is simple. Sam reluctantly attempts to help her brother, trying not antagonize the vampires or the demon gunning for him, all while chafing to comply with the restrictions her angel has placed on her as a bound demon.

a good book that builds up the story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes I would. this book is a great continuation of the imp series the author has done a good job fleshing out the characters and the storyline is shaping up to be quite interesting I am interested to learn what new adventures our wayward demon gets into

What other book might you compare Satan's Sword to and why?

I think these books so far are most similar to the October daye novels. a slightly ditsy heroin with more powerful friends and enemies who still manages to fumble through although toby is more intelligent who knows the series is still young.

What does Angela Rysk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she has a...idk smoky tone that helps convey a better mental picture plus I like hearing female lead books read by a female narrator. in the first book I thought she had trouble with the male voices but I was well pleased with how she did this book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

it did keep my attention but as it was more of a fun book for me and not quite so life or death serious I did not feel a compelling need to keep listening...but I did still finish it in under 2 days so it was enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

i see that there are several more in this series out on paper back i am looking forward to when thy come to audible.

That amoral, depraved demon we all know and love.

Would you consider the audio edition of Satan's Sword to be better than the print version?

yes.

What did you like best about this story?

I find it strangely amusing.

Which scene was your favorite?

When she was trying to understand the serial killer. And then when she is whining to wyatt that she is upset about the serial killer being stupid and not being able to dehydrate an ear properly.

Any additional comments?

OK. So in my review of the previous book I mentioned that ALL of the characters are completely amoral. Case in point - Wyatt, the boyfriend. Their relationship is a romance novel flipped on its head and soaked in acid.... instead of the night in shining armor rescuing the helpless female and then engage in steamy moments...you have the helpless human male being protected by the serial killer demon who at one point shares its deepest fantasy....along the lines of...I want to put you in a bathtub full of blood and strangle you with some entrails that I am gnawing on.... Instead of running screaming....he's like..can we use wine instead of blood....hot stuff...uh huh...any who.... He sees her in her demon form. She offers in all seriousness to kill a rival that he lost a video game tournament to. He knows that she kills people...and he is like...well babe I'm going to play video games and then you are done killing and torturing people we can go have some hot wings at the bar..... I kept thinking about women who are married to serial killers and people are like..how did you not know you were married to a monster.... and yet I like them all....crazy

excellent follow-up

What did you like about this audiobook?

This second book in the series is actually even better than the first. The lead character was funnier than ever, more hedonistic, yet you can't help but like her candor (even as some of her actions / thoughts repulse you!)

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

Can't wait for the next installment

Do you have any additional comments?

The pace of narration was quite slow, but that was resolved by switching to 1.5x speed. However, Her narration is impeccable. She brings the characters to life such a way one wouldn't get from just reading the book. I reckon she's one of the best narrators I've come across yet.

Great Book

The book was very entertaining and I really enjoy it. Usually not into demons but Debra did a great job writing. I like that she put humor, and a little gore into this book.

Very good series

I just love the world and characters created by MS Dunbar. Suspenseful, with laughs and unworldly beings. Bonus a narrator that dose each character with a perfect voice .

A good romp, a little too violent at one point

I like the light-heartedness of Samantha, but got turned off when she killed all those men. Even so, it's a fun series, and Rysk's voice works well with the character.

Read it, but don't listen

This series is wonderfully funny! The narration is awful, awful, awful! Go out of your way to read it, but don't listen.
