Dark Hope (The Devil's Assistant Book 1) - kindle ebook by HD Smith


Ten millennia ago the sibling rulers of the druids, pagans, and demons banded together to destroy their sister and her realm. The survivors of the Fallen realm were scattered throughout the world … waiting for their Queen to return.

In present day, 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.

Mace, the youngest of the four, is obsessed with her because his father (the Demon King) favors Claire above all others, leaving Claire to question her true identity. Could the Devil be her father?

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, but also wants control of Mace and his siblings. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

On Claire’s journey through hidden realms and magical traps, we follow her from New York to China, Grand Cayman, and the underworld. We watch her gain magical powers and learn the truth about her connection to the Fallen realm. Will she win her freedom, and save her soul from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?
