“Do you know what a papal conclave is?”


Will is gone. He hasn’t been seen in months, and the texts coming from his phone are almost certainly forged. Something’s wrong. We need to act now.

Michael is ready to tear down The Cove, Rika’s hiding something, Evans Crist is a threat, and Winter’s father is still out there.

Everyone is off in a million directions, and

Oh, how I missed reading something written by Penelope! She’s a queen! I love all her books and I can’t wait to read the fourth book of this series.
This particular short story brought together almost all the characters from the last 3 books and it made me feel like I was reading about a family, not about a group of friends/couples. But they are actually a family, right?! The connection they all have is so intense and palpable, you can not possibly ignore it.
I loved it!

It was so good to read more about this guys. Loved the surprise of seeing all my favorite characters here including characters from another book. I love this series so much. And it got me A LOT more curious about Will. Gimme NIGHTFALL already!!!!

Rating: 3.5

Definitely has me pumped for Will's story and I was super happy to see all of these characters back together again. This did feel like a little bit of an info dump but honestly, I'm such a sucker for anything that has to do with this world that I'm not even mad.

I don’t like how the series has become so Rika(who I dislike more after every book) and Damon centric. I feel like all other characters are under utilised so these two are always in the spotlight.

I also thought the misunderstanding scene between Michael,Rika, Kai and Banks was dumb. It undermines both couples who I would hope are secure in their relationships by now.

I’m still going to read book 4 just to finish the series but I’m not eagerly anticipating it.

This was fantastic, too short, not enough, a total lady boner tease. I love this cast of characters so much it hurts. Hands down one of my all-time favorite series.

I guess it’s time for a reread, huh?

Not gonna lie this made me less excited for the next book. The first book was like an extreme version of high school where the bullies where literal psychopaths and we got a glimpse into this crazy world where only the rich and powerful live and we got to see what they did with that power the one night it peaks. The first book was like a special event that we got once a year and it still had a high school vibe that gave all the crazy scenarios a pass but now devils night has dripped into the ...more
i think i’ll need to reread the entire series before the last book is out because i don’t remember much

Ahhh, Damon had me hypnotized! From page 1 I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. He wasted no time being his usual self--all dark brooding intensity and alpha to the max! Why is he so bad and why do I love him for it? Penelope Douglas needs to explain this to me. I kept rereading paragraphs because I wasn't ready to move on from certain scenes. The things he'd say had me grinning like a fool and I just wanted to prolong the novella. Conclave is told from Damon and Rika's points of

I love this in-between book's peek into what's going on with the characters. The Devils Night characters are some of my all-time favorites, and this novella is such a great way to reconnect with them while waiting for Nightfall - not to mention add to the excitement of Will's story.

I like this series, but in this novella all the characters took themselves way too seriously. You guys created a club because you like to play pranks on Halloween, you're not part of the mafia. Calm down.

Can never have enough Damon...

Conclave (Devil's Night #3.5) by Penelope Douglas


Corrupt is my all-time favorite book of all time. I love, I adore all the books and characters in this series, but Corrupt, Rika and Michael, they have a special place in my heart. I love them so much. I miss them so much. I love all the characters so much, I miss all the characters so much. I missed reading about them but reading something NEW about them, about all the characters, it was like coming back to life.

I can't wait for

This is a very short novellla, that's to read for free on Pen's page. I bought the pb because I adore this series and I need my collection complete!

It gave me so many feels even though it is short it still made me feel everything. That's when you know she is truely that good!

I love every bit of Rika and Michael that we get more! They are still my favorite even though Damon is so close as well!
Pen is also known for the daring hotness this one sure had it as well!

Whenever Penelope Douglas graces us with her words, I eat them up like they are my last meal, so when I found out she was giving us fans of her DEVIL'S NIGHT series a little something something, in the form of a 27,000 word novella, I "sat at my dinner table" ready for my serving, and devoured it as soon as it was in front of me.

This novella was EVERYTHING I've come to love about this series and Pen's writing. It gave us fans, who were starving for a mere morsel of information in regards to
4 stars

Conclave is a short novella. This book has revelations of some secrets and admissions. This book should be read if you're on ride for Devils Night series. Michael and Erica, Damon and Winter makes appearences here and has a little scene written on them. In the end there are still more secrets to unveil. Where is Will? How will the crew get him back? I'm excited to see where this goes.

Little rant: The Devils Night series is taking a while to finish. I admit I forgot few names and scenes

4 1/2 stars!

This little mini novella gave me a quick fix of the Devil's Night gang. It also made me more anxious than ever about getting Will's story in Nightfall!!

It really didn't add as much to the series as I was expecting...but it did make me more anxious for Will's book

I read this little bonus scene novella as Pen posted them separately in her Facebook group, but now that it's a paperback I'll definitely be buying it to have her sign!

Conclave was a perfect little addition to the Devil's Night series. I especially loved Parts II - III because so much of Michael and Rika's stuff I'd been wondering about was explained.

The whole thing was wonderful. I never want to leave the DN world so if Pen could keep writing it forever, I'll never stop reading.

One of my favorites reads this year.
And insanely amazing book.
This whole world is crazy, consuming, and it will take you out of your comfort zone.
This book needs to be read between Kill Switch and Nightfall (not released yet).
None of his friends and/or family have seen Will for more than a year, so Rika, Banks, Alex, Winter, Michael, Kai, Damon, plus Misha - Will's cousin- and his girlfriend Ryen need to reunite so they can plan how to find Will and the only information they have is that he may
