The Devil to Pay has arrived and it was worth the trip to meet the Devil
Jayne just got passed over for a promotion so she is feeling low and one day while at lunch she spies a skyscraper that she swears she had never seen before and was amazed at how quickly it was built. She walks into the building and her life is changed forever. She meets Luke Morningstar, CEO of Hades Enterprises, H.E. LLc and is surprised when she finds out that he is indeed the Devil.
She is afraid at first because she has all the same preconceived notions of what the Devil is like and is sure that he is the same way but he proves her wrong and in turn she learns some interesting things about what she had been taught about the archangels and death and the Devil himself.
When Luke first meets Jayne he is in awe that she can see the building and he finds out why so he says, " I hate to win and run, but I have to see a Demon about a fruit basket." He and the archangels play poker every Thursday night and I was shocked to learn that they do human things. This is a wonderful book and it made me take another look at what we all think the archangels are supposed to be like. I loved his assistant, Malcolm and I hope that he gets his own story next.
