Everyone is off in a million directions, and we’re vulnerable.It’s time to do this.

I love the series, but it’s getting a little unrealistic. I mean, I appreciate the optimism and the idea of wanting to build a meaningful legacy is brilliant. Go young minds! 👏 But how did we go from Devil’s Night high school pranks to running for a mayor, gubernatorial or whatever! These characters in their early twenties talking about murder, politics, dominating the world (well, the
I bought this novella because I was excited to have any extra stories to add to this dark series! What I hadn’t realized until after I bought it was the the author has the Short story posted on her site..In other words I could have read it for free!!🤷‍♀️ I have decided not to dwell on it though as I have loved the whole series so far! I don’t mind having this novella to add to my collection!

As with all novella’s my main complaint is that they are always too short! This was no exception; however

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. ...more

Just when I start to tolerate Rika in Kill Switch, I have to read this and every ugly emotion I have for her is there again.
She is a Mary Sue. She is beautiful. She is the richest of all characters in this series. She is a fricking ninja. She is a mayor, even though she's still in college. Everyone caters to her every whim. Every book after Corrupt, where she was a main female character, has her playing a bigger role than necessary- she is Kai's best friend and the one that made him want women

Well, I finally finished something! Yay.

I guess this was only written to set the tone for Nightfall, otherwise I don’t get the point. I would be a liar if I said I undestood everything happening in here. I’m just here for the romance, and don’t really care for the drama happening in the background (which is becoming honestly a little OTT and ridiculous). At least we got more of Damon and Winter and I loved their scenes so much. This was also filled with Rika and unballsy Michael, which I didn’t

Jeezus. Halfway in and it was so bloody lame I ken-nut take it.

God knows why I'm continuing with this series when all knows I hate Erika Fane. Oh waittttt, yah, I'm in it because I love Banks and Kai, and it's PAINFULLY obvious that Penelope Douglas loves Kai as well, but unlike me she seems to love having him make googly eyes and be supportive of Rika for crissakes.

I think I lived for when Michael told Rika to go fuck herself and fuck to her power, entourage, assistants etc etc and a whole lo

2 stars because i was reading this on a plane and it only put me to sleep once but also the entire time i had to hide what i was reading from the middle-aged man sitting right next to me

was this absolutely unnecessary? yes. did i know that going in? also yes.
so then why am i surprised i found it to be a complete waste of time

Okay, so, Conclave

In the beginning of the novella, it says that it's for fans of the series who want a bit more content, but in reality it's for fans of PD's weird ob

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.

Perfect! Enough to keep me invested in the characters while waiting for the final book! So sweet seeing Daemon & Winters baby’s birth as a bonus story. I did want to see more of what happened at the Conclave but sadly we only get Rika & Michael’s reunion for the most part.

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! 😍

I decided to reread this because I missed Winter & Damon. I can’t wait to finally read Nightfall.
I know everyone has already said this but oh my god Rika grates on my nerves. It was still ok till the second book but now it’s like she is a third wheel in every book. Why is she given so much important? Why is Penelope Douglas so obsessed with her?

3.5 ⭐'s

I'm not a big fan of novellas so I had skipped this one, however, when I read Nightfall, I had a feeling I missed some things so I decided to give it a shot.

And...I don't think I missed anything, at least, nothing major. As with most novellas, there's not enough "meat" for it to warrant a strong star rating IMO.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the Damon scenes and his scenes with Winter. I loved seeing his soft side. But the scenes with Rika and Michael were a bit too intense for me. I'm

Okay... I really could have gone without reading this novel.
But I've guessed that it was essential, because finally, after thirteen months (That's right, THIRTEEN MONTHS), this super tight group, their own Chosen family, they finally realized Will's unusual physical absence!
How the hell did that happen? Did Misha really have to show up to rub it in their faces, or was it just a cue to include him in the story?
All this soap opera just make me sad...

Short, a collection of bonus scenes along with some new material and sort of an introduction to what's to come on Nightfall. As always, intense, hot and sexy. I love Penelope Douglas and she always brings it. If you're following this series, then this is a must. It's also FREE on her website if you want to check it out there! ...more

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 rea ...more

“The only one who can bring Ivar Torrance’s father to his knees is Ivar’s mother.”

when i read the blurb, i was actually excited about the idea of putting all the characters inside a yacht so they could talk about what was going on and make decisions about their next steps. however, i was utterly disappointed that the group almost didn’t discuss anything of importance and this was mainly focused on michael and rika’s personal problems. i liked that rika stood up to michael because he really n

Nice quick read to get back in this world before Nightfall. If anyone can tell me who David and Lev are please let me know, my mind was totally blank.

4/5 Loved It

The group is together and loved every moment with them. Penelope Douglas knows how to write a sexy scene. You all she had me so nervous a few times. Had some giggle, sweet and heartbroken moments. The friendships I adore. Damon my man might have his faults but love him more when he will protect anybody he cares about. Totally fell in love with Michael all over again.
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.

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.
