Wow, I feel like Karina Halle wrote this book exactly for me. There were interesting and never annoying characters, sarcastic remarks, original ideas and captivating (sometimes creepy) plotline. It was a perfection and I loved it!

Anyway, to sum this book up, The Devil's Metal is about 70s music...


about sex, drugs and rock&roll...


and about some serious demon stuff...
(view spoiler)

My Dawn and Sage:


Dawn is 21 years old student, dreaming of becoming respected female music journalist. Altough as a woman in 70s, it is going to be very difficult to achieve. Then she gets unexpected but amazing offer - to participate on tour with famous and one of her favourite metal bands Hybrid and write about it. Now things are going to change drastically for Dawn...

The whole Hybrid band and crew was fascinating. To read about backstage events of band tour in 70s was definitely very refreshing experience. But once Dawn sees band's true face and losts her ideals, everything starts to go downhill. Things become very creepy and dangerous. But I do not want to give anything away, you will just have to read it yourself. It is worth it!

When it comes to characters, Dawn was excellent narrator and interesting character - hard on the outside but fragile inside. Than there was Sage, lead guitarist in the band and lead male character overall. Sage was mesmerizing and one of the most intriguing characters ever. I just love hot, mysterious, talented and a little but messed up guys...

"But try as I did, I could not keep my eyes off of Sage Knightly. I just couldn’t help myself. Seeing this man on stage was like watching a lion prowl along the crest of his kingdom. He commanded respect even when he was seated on his chair with only an acoustic guitar at his fingers, ..."

There are books and than there are THE books, the ones that you will never forget. And The Devil's Metal is exactly the type of the book that based on its originality and fascinating storyline, will stay with you forever. Flawless writing will immediately suck you into the story and intriguing plotline will keep you entertained through out whole book. Story in The Devil's Metal was wrapped up nicely, there is no cliffhanger but it set very interesting premise for sequel and I cannot wait to read it!
