Matt Wallace does it again, and I’m absolutely loving the third book in the Sin du Jour series. I’ve mentioned before (here and here) how much I enjoy this series so my review

Sin du Jour is double-booked, so the team splits up to handle the task – one to remain at Sin du Jour and the other LA to cater a movie premiere. Nothing is as it seems. Hell’s hitman have been hired to take out the remaining Sin du Jour staff back home (Easter Bunny, Cupid, Elves and Santa and more), while the Hollywood team is about to be offered up for a demon sacrifice.

The opening prologue scene drew me in right away. The characters are firmly established, so it might be hard for those who haven’t read the first two to really feel comfortable enough to continue with the story. Tensions, relationships, conflicts, humor, and one-liners have all been perfectly prepared, we readers know how it works. But I love how things still surprise me in this series, how insane the story gets and yet Wallace pulls it off perfectly.

I was so impressed with Pride’s Spell. Fun and humorous, it felt well paced and things happened with out a hiccup (for the reader, the characters had a bumpy ride).
