My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about command. Robin Landon is a witch bound as a minion to demon Barbara Knollman and has done her bidding for five years. But when Barbara orders Robin to kill cameraman Jackson McKee, Robin struggles to carry out the order. When she refuses, Barbara hires a replacement killer and ups the deadline. Turning to reluctant allies, she comes up with a plan. Can she stop the killer before its too late and stand up to Barbara?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Robin standing up for herself but anxious underneath or Jackson as kind and caring but with more to him underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the sarcastic Evie or the supportive Catherine. A wonderful villain in Barbara manipulative and powerful that will send shivers up your spine. It was great to see her step out of the shadows from the last three books and beome even more dangerous and wonderfully written..
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the office with the high back chair and the desk lack of colour against the bright red of Barbara’s eyes contrasting perfectly. Or with Jacksons house with its wooden floors and comfortable furnishings for a homely feel. Or the scenes with magic later on full of colour and energy so vivid its as if youre actually there.
A great example of building upon the sequel with the addition of new fantasy creatures like the witches and the demon given the respect they deserve and true to their origins adding a sense of magic to this world and wonderfully written. I also liked the use of Barbara having premonitions, adding something new to the figure of the demon. The use of the linguistics of acting was a lovely touch and helped the reader understand. The combination of realism of offices and film sets and the fantasy of demons was combined perfectly and made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
