It's been almost sixty years since the daemons came to Earth and brought magic with them. Since then, magic has been integrated with technology in the territories claimed by higher ranking daemons, allowing much of science fiction to become fact. Life in most territories is, if not idyllic, then at least relatively normal, for varying definitions of normal. But beneath tha ...more

I just hate it when I have no more idea of what is going on in a book when I finish than when I started it. "Devil's Playthings" is the first book in a light hearted supernatural suspense series, but although they caught the bad guy at the end of the novel, you don't know why he did it, who any of the people/beings even are or what the heck is going on.
I don't think my curiosity will last long enough for the second book. I will have forgotten it all by then.
I received this book free in exchange

I tried twice to read this book. It was painful. It’s kind of confusing. I thought it was a magic book similar to the magicians. It is not. It’s boring and strange.

I received this kindle e-book through a Goodreads Giveaway. It was an interesting twist on a supernatural suspense. Daemons came to Earth about 60 years ago and magic came with them.

The main characters are fascinating, but we don't know everything about them by the end of the book. This is the first in a series and it le ...more

I enjoyed the first chapter and read a few more when I became too confused to read further.

Josh once lived in Florida, but currently resides in Ohio with his wonderful wife and destroyer son, along with four cats (all who know a sucker when they see two). He's been a lifeguard, an odd-jobber, a college student, and an office-worker, all the while thinking up stories. Now he's finally trying to make a living at it.
