Heads up: this is going to be a short and probably odd review.

Did I find Devil's Daughter extraordinarily original and mind-blowing? Nope.

Was the world building insane? Not really. It was interesting, sure, but not very elaborate. Some notions were not that clear to me, like what exactly the Between was and why some beings could change it, and I thought that the ward thing was an easy way out of situations which really could not have been fixed in other

I enjoyed it, but I didn't love it as much as I hoped.

What I liked:

-the cover is beautiful. There are FLAMES in that eye. FLAMES!

-it was a great angel-devil story that DIDN'T make Nephilim the main focus (in fact, they were only mentioned briefly and that was in reference to something else).

-the female characters weren't helpless damsels; they had agency and their own powers - either literally, in the

It is filled with objects that hold dark souls. Only people at a moral crossroads can see and enter the shop, where they pawn or purchase a dark object. Theses objects wreak havoc on the mortals who purchase them. Lucinda meets a mortal man who makes her feel things she has never experienced before, such as love and ...more

When I was offered a copy of Devil’s Daughter, I jumped at the chance to read it as only very few books of this nature capture my attention. It’s an interesting take on the devil and his level of evilness and here is what I thought of it.

Lucinda is the daughter of Lucifer himself and her mother is a human. (I won’t name her mother as that’s a huge spoiler, but a great twist) She’s been alive for a millenia and is immortal like her father yet has human characteristics/emotions after her mother. I

Devil’s Daughter is about Lucinda, the daughter of Satan and Eve, so she is half human and half angel. She is surrounded by demons, fallen angels, and others who serve her father.

The authors’ writing flows well and is easy to follow. The book did get a little too in depth for my taste at times so I did do some skipping that didn’t affect the story. I especially liked the side stories about people who purchase items in Lucinda’s

The Devil’s Daughter is a paranormal, supernatural and magical book that pits good against evil. This original storyline has a twist from the norm.

Lucinda runs a pawn shop. Be careful when you go in, because she may have just what is looking for you. Could it be a gift? Could it be a curse?

Lucinda is the daughter of Lucifer and Eve. At first, I thought she was evil, but there is more to Lucinda than meets the eye. She has her own agenda and is often at odds with her father. She wonders why God

Devil's Daughter: Lucinda's Pawnshop, Book One

Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
I was lucky enough to get a free copy of this book for an honest Review.
Really enjoyed this book and by the sounds of it there is going to be more. I loved the characters and what each one did have to do. Lucinda's Pawnshop appears where it needs to be at the time, also she has the ability to change form and go from time

It was good, it was difficult, it was a little slow at times. This is a manipulative Lucifer and his daughter. We enter in the middle of their web of schemes and follow each storyline, which all intersect at least somewhat. There is a lot going on and everyone has an agenda... Looking forward to book 2 since many of the lines of story are still unresolved.

Absolutely wonderfully written page turner that was the best blend of paranormal and suspense I've seen in quite a while. Perfect intro to this series.

Lucinda is the owner of a pawn shop which has the power to appear anywhere in the world. Only those who are going through some kind of moral conflict can enter; once inside, a dark object calls out to them. This object will have the power to greatly influence their lives. As the devil's daughter, Lucinda collects these objects at the behest of Satan. Because she is also the daughter of Eve, Lucinda still has a human soul and heart and this means that sometimes she's able to cast wrench into the ...more

I found the premises of this book to be very interesting and original. It is similar to stories of requests/bargains with the devil, but it has a lot more depth that just “making a deal” with the devil. Lucinda struggles to both work for her father and protect the man she is drawn to. I found the pawn shop aspect to be very interesting. This did not feel like a concluded story to me. I could feel that it was meant to be a series. I think this is an important aspect of a series because that ...more

If there’s one thing you need to know to decide whether to get the book, it’s this: Devil’s Daughter reads closer to Christian fiction than Urban Fantasy. While the story takes some liberties with the religious mythology, it stays true to its themes of redemption and love. What it means to be a good person. The danger of good intentions and shortcuts. The power of choice.

After reading that blurb, you’ll be forgiven for thinking this story is all about Lucinda’s struggle against Lucifer and quest

Thanks netgalley for letting me read it.

A book, a blurb and a victim.
The book: Don't really need to tell you, if you are reading this.
The blurb: See the first comment.
The victim: Me.

BUT… it’s ok. Because while I was suckered by the blurb and requested the book because of it, while it was so very different than what I expected, it is ok. Because I really enjoyed it! I won’t bother with a synopsis, because, well, the blurb. But, I will

You can get the jest of the story from the blurb. That is the tip of the iceberg. There are at least six story arcs going on in this book. I want to count Nathaniel as a story arc also though, he intrigues me the most of the fallen angels, and adding his would make seven. So, we have the basic good versus evil plot with the twist of Lucinda (Lucifer and Eve’s daughter) thrown in the middle. Lucifer kidnapped Mariel when she was five-years-old and brought her into his realm of the Between, ...more

I wanted to love this book. I tried to love this book. Unfortunately, no matter how many chances I gave it, Devil's Daughter by Hope Schenk-de Michele, Paul Marquez with Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, fell flat.

As a fan of supernatural fiction and the exploration of good vs evil, Devil's Daughter looked right up my alley. The story follows Lucinda Trompe, a changeling born from the fallen angel Lucifer and the first woman, Eve. Lucinda appears to manage a pawnshop for her father, which acts as a

Lucinda is the one and only daughter of the Prince of Darkness, Lucifer, and the first woman on earth, Eve. She is a mix between a fallen angel and a human, and she is eternal. She is power and darkness itself, and she has no weaknesses.

I did quite like this book, but not as much as I had hoped. Lucinda owns a pawn shop with some rather rare and intriguing items in it, usually items that she has had to track down from the corners of the Earth for her father, Lucifer. Yep, the devil himself. The items are generally Lucifer's way of influencing humans to do the things he wants them to do in order to create a bit of chaos in the world. He cannot

This book was difficult to rate. I liked it but it took me a little longer to get through than most books. I was able to put it down and move on to other books in my to-read pile. I'm pretty good at focusing on one book but I kept getting bored while reading. It's also a difficult book to review. I've rewritten this thing 10 times already.

The plot of the book is interesting. We have the daughter of Eve and Lucifer. We have demons and fallen

Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy of this book to read and review via Netgalley.

"Devil's Daughter: Lucinda's Pawnshop, Book One" by Hope Schenk-De Michele introduces us to an alternate universe where Eve and Lucifer have a daughter, Lucinda. The book balances nicely between action scenes and thought provoking scenes as the tale unwinds.

The basis of this book is that the world is filled with artifacts imbued with the spirit of the original owner. Some artifacts contain peace and kindness.

I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but once I did, I was glad I stuck it out and kept reading instead of just giving up. The pace picks up and flows nicely throughout the rest of the book.

Lucinda is, as you can tell by the title, the daughter of the Devil. She runs a pawnshop that can appear where it’s needed. Only those who are ready for it can see and enter the shop. She has developed feelings for a human and spends the rest of the book trying to protect him from those in her
Lucinda is the daughter of Lucifer, the devil, and a human woman. She is cunning and powerful like her father, but uses her abilities to further her mother’s memory of love and beauty without her father knowing. In her disguise as human, she runs a pawnshop full of cursed objects, waiting for the right person to enter the store and come under their influence. However, the objects come at a greater cost than the average person realizes…they just might lose their soul to Lucifer, unless Lucinda ...more

An interesting concept and entertaining read. Although this book was written by three authors, the writing was seamless and flowed well. The characters were well developed.

Lucinda was very clever in hiding the fact that she was really undermining her father's plans even though by all appearances she seemed to be aiding him in trying to bring humanity to ruins. As far as her relationship with Lucifer goes, you get the feeling that he does care for her at least somewhat, despite the fact that he

When I was younger I remember watching a show called Friday the 13th. A woman inherits an antique shop full of cursed objects and mayhem ensues. In this novel even though it is very similar be prepared for something so much bigger and better. Lucinda is the devils daughter charged with matching objects touched with evil to the person who soul calls out to it.
