You think it's safe to walk alone at night. It's not. You think the only threat is other humans. It's not. Monsters are real. Demons are real. Vampires are real. And I'm about to become one of them. My name is Arianna Spero. I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until my mother lapsed into a coma. Now, I am her only hope. She made a deal with the devil, and on my 18th birthday he came to collect. But there's a way to save her. There's something the princes of hell want more than my mother. Me.
So I signed my soul away and promised to pick a prince to marry. I would take the blood oath, become one of them, and give them an heir. I would become a princess of hell, and my mother would live. I expected fire and brimstone. I expected pain and misery. I didn't expect beauty. I didn't expect magic. I didn't expect love. But the princes are keeping secrets from me.
The concept of the seven princes of hell, all ruling with the influence of each seven deadly sins, is very unique. I've always wanted a book written with this concept but with added personification of each sin. And this book is exactly that. Each prince represents a deadly sin and Arianna must choose one and become the princess of hell.
But the perception and setting of hell is widely different from normal perception, a burning inferno. It's a setting where the citizens are vampires, fae, shades and more. It's almost like a medieval setting with each sin apparent in each setting.
Arianna is so head strong and stands up for herself. She doesn't take shit from anyone, honestly. She is determined and wants her mother back. But as she lives with Fen, the prince of war, she realizes that there is more to what life is really about.
I'm so glad the author brought modern day issues (ex transgender and treatment of women) and showed how they should be accepted and followed. I love the diversity. It made the story more real because these are real things in our setting.
I really do look forward to the next book. I devoured this book in a day. The writing is phenomenal and lively. I need more of this in books.
Like I said before, I really do look forward to the next book. I must know what happens next after that ending. 😭
