Satan's Affair

Rating: 4 Stars

"Don't enter the den of wolves and ask not to be bitten."

We travel the country, offering terrifying haunted houses, thrilling rides and the tastiest food. And with every passing town, I cleanse the world, one execution at a time. I hide within the walls, casting my judgment for those that reek of evil, singing lullabies to their rotting souls. Once you've been chosen, there's no escaping my henchmen-they cater to my every desire. You can run and you can hide, but it only excites me. Come. Take a walk through my dollhouse, where your screams will blend and your cute little pleas will go unanswered.

So I have heard amazing things about H.D. Carlton and I have been wanting to really delve into the dark romance genre. Well I would say this book was a good way to start that. I mean it pretty much commits to be dark, dirty, and nasty from the start. Yet, I enjoyed it. I loved that the main character doing the killing was a female. I loved the brief backstory we got for her in a short novella. I felt like this book gave me just enough information to understand the characters while also leaving me wanting more. I will say this book is incredibly graphic and lucky for me I love horror movies and psychological thrillers because this sort of reads like one.

Sibby is a little bit childlike but also a stone cold killer so it was an interesting dynamic. I will say that trigger warnings should be read for this novella. I had a few times I was icked out but my god Carlton is a beautiful writer. I was so engrossed in the story and want to know more about Zade. So why four stars? I was going to give it five for the shocking reveal at the end alone... until it left me hanging with the final paragraph and now I don't know the final outcome. But seriously I look forward to reading more books by H.D. Carlton!
