Devil's Play by Kenya Carlton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Devil's Play was a captivating tale with an original storyline. Full of a variety of supernatural creatures, the author delves into the supernatural realm and creates an alluring world that is dark and sexy. Set in the 1940s, Devil's Play is the story of Army Captain Drake Devilin and his wife, Sienna. Drake is a genetically altered human, and Sienna is a powerful witch. When Drake is called to war, he grudgingly leaves his wife behind under the watchful eye of a trusted friend. When Drake's life is threatened, Sienna is caught up in a deadly game, the prize being her husband and her happiness.
The book jumped right into the story, which I thought was great at first, but I was expecting the author to go back and explain some of the things we were introduced to. However, that never happened. This is what I struggled with the most regarding this book. When I received a copy of Devil's Play for review I was not aware that this book was part of a series. There is nothing on the book cover or in the description to indicate that it is not the first part of the story. As it was, I jumped right into the middle of a story that I had no background on. While I did enjoy this book, I would have been able to fully understand the characters and their lives and troubles even more had I had the opportunity to read the previous book first.
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
