This story will relate to any parent who’s child wakes up

EVERY ….. SINGLE ….. NIGHT!

I say that in shouty capitals because I am one of those parents, night after night my 3 year old wakes up for a drink or a wee or to tell me something really really important (she’s 3! What can be THAT important that she needs to tell me at 2am!!)

So I have my fingers crossed that this story will work on her….. a story that a very tired Mother and Father make up to entice their children to sleep the whole night through.

Now my little one got very excited in seeing a little fairy hand under the bed in the pictures, we then had to check under her bed just in case the fairy had come to visit early. I do hope that this story ‘rubs’ off on my daughter as this mum really does need a fair few whole night sleeps, not sure I rock the mombie look 😂

It’s a sweet story and yes these children do eventualy sleep the whole night through at the end, so there’s hope for us all with this book! If this works, and I really hope it does, I will change my rating to 5 thumbs up!!

The Devil’s Poetry by Louise Cole
mini obc about the book
Questions are dangerous but answers can be deadly.
Callie’s world will be lost to war – unless she can unlock the magic of an ancient
manuscript. She and her friends will be sent to the front line. Many of them won’t
come back. When a secret order tells her she can bring peace by reading from a book,
it seems an easy solution – too easy. Callie soon finds herself hunted, trapped
between desperate allies and diabolical enemies. The Order is every bit as ruthless as
the paranormal Cadaveri.
Callie can only trust two people – her best friend and her ex-marine bodyguard. And
they are on different sides. She must decide: how far will she go to stop a war?
Dare she read this book? What’s the price – and who pays it?
Commended in the Yeovil Prize 2016, this is an action-packed blend of adventure,
fantasy and love story.

Where to start with this book?!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!

Now i could leave my review like that but i wont!!

Now don’t let the title put you off, it isn’t a poetry book or a book about the devil but a beautiful story about Callie. Her life has never been easy, loosing her Mother at a young age, felling like she never fits it and a Father that’s very distant with her on an emotional level.

Callie has always found comfort in her books, much to her Father’s dislike, so when a book thats been thrown into her hands calls to her…… yes, really calls to her, she grips it with both hands, and it doesn’t matter that an army of the Cadaveri will stop at nothing to have the book or that Jace has warned her NOT to read it, Callie just cant help herself and suddenly finder herself having to save the world!!

I loved the sweet relationship that blossomed between Callie and Jace throughout the book, Jace’s passion and dedication on wanting to do whats right for the Order and doing whats right for Callie is tested all the way through (think that’s what makes me love him as a character) and the test of friendship between Callie and Amber. Have to say I’ve never disliked a character as much as i disliked Ella, shes rude, pigheaded and thinks she knows everything……i did have a pang of guilt for disliking her so much towards the end of the book.

This book is so action packed it could give Jason Bourne a run for his money! Its fast paced, with twists and turns galore. You think its going one way then the author swiftly spins you around and into a whole new direction, which i loved! Its gripping, entertaining, and with just the right amount of romance to keep you hooked! Louise is a new author to me and if her books that follow are just as good or even better than this she’ll have a massive following in no time, with me in the front spot!! Now whens the next book out?!?
