Hi, I’m Muriel, the only white sheep in a sea of black ones, and a virgin to boot. I am determined to wait for love, but my Dad, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. I’m hoping the hunk I met in my bar will turn out to be the one–just looking at him makes my insides melt like marshmallows over the coals of Hell, but trusting is hard when it seems everyone I get close to ends up trying to kill me.
Not only am I dealing with an extreme case of lust, there’s a new threat in Hell, one my Dad says to ignore. Something easier said than done since it seems everywhere I turn demons are trying to kill me. But I’m okay with that, because one thing I’ve learned being a princess of Hell is that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around a bit.
A rebellion in Hell, demon assassins and scorching kisses, could my life get any more interesting?
Where to start? First, the smoking hot cover caught my attention, then the title, and finally the blurb. So I had high expectations before even starting to read Lucifer’s Daughter. Let’s just say I was not disappointed!
Eve Langlais decided on a first person perspective for this book, in Muriel’s point of view. It was a bold move that paid off and suited the story, a mix of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, perfectly. My attention was captured from the beginning, until the end. The humor was to die for and you couldn’t get a better character than Muriel. She’s Satan’s daughter, the princess of hell, and proud of it. No, she’s not evil, even still a virgin, but she’s seriously kick ass and knows how to survive on earth and in hell.
I won’t spill Auric’s true identity, as it’s not revealed until the second half of the novel, but they’re a perfect match for each other. Though Muriel is one chick not to be messed with, she can easily admit to herself that she enjoys a take-charge man willing to protect her. I loved Muriel’s inner dialogue throughout this story. She’s an honest character that I couldn’t get enough of. We get to see her in action, as well as her softer side.
The entire cast of characters, from interfering dad, Lucifer, to incubus sister, Bambi, they each brought a unique flavor to the novel. Things take an exciting twist when it’s up to Muriel to make an impossible choice. There's a power war in hell that threatens Muriel and anyone she cares about. Will she choose love or certain death?
This is a brilliant, unique, urban fantasy/paranormal romance that I encourage any lover of the genre to snatch up right away. It’s hot, sexy, hilarious and fast paced. Way to go, Eve Langlais. You’ve definitely made your mark with this one!
