{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Dark Hope - By H.D. Smith


Author: H.D. Smith
Release Date: 3/3/2014
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N
Loving a demon isn’t the end of the world—losing him is.

Claire, the Devil’s assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother’s unpaid debt to the Demon King. She certainly didn’t expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen’s throne, a target for the Druid King’s mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil’s oldest hell spawn.

In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?

Darkly Delicious!!

Probably they only thing that I probably didn't LOVE about this book was how moody the Devil was, lol. Along with the broody Devil, there were Druid Mafia's Pagan Queens, sassy ex-wives and murders. There were SO many twists in this book that it almost made my head spin, and not in that annoying tilt-o-whirl spin either.

I feel absolutely head over heels in love with this book! It truly was dark & delicious. Mayhem, death, Demons, Pagan's, Druids and a kickass heroine! Though Claire is bound by marks to the Devil, I could help but want her to just deliver a mean right hook to him at times.....he has anger issues & thinks he can just do anything he pleases, lol....Claire was seriously awesome, she went from being roughed up in the first few chapters to holding her own in more ways than one by the end of the book. Seeing growth in a character like hers really makes me excited to read the book as quickly as possible!

With the way the author was able to create such a new interesting world with so many fantastic types of characters I cold absolutely see this series taking off and becoming the next big thing! Make sure you go out and grab this book ASAP, you will not regret it!!
