What happens when falling in love and falling from grace collide?

After dying in a car accident with her two best friends, Lily miraculously awakens to grief and guilt. She escapes to her dad’s to come to terms with the event and meets some people at her new school who seem all too eager to help her heal. Sliding deeper into sorrow and trying to fight her feelings for two of them, she discovers who…what they really are and learns they are falling too.

I really enjoyed Speak of the Devil by Shawna Romkey. Lily, the MC, gets into a car accident together with her friends Mike and Julie, and she is the only one who survives. She grieves her friends' loss, and goes to her father's place where she hopes to escape her sorrow.

She attends a new school, and meets new people there, but she can't forget about the accident that ruined her life. Even though Lily survives, she refers to it as "our death", "we died" and "I'd died with Julie and Mike", which produced a great impact on me.

She meets Mo and Luc and is torn about who she likes more. But then there's a mystery about them she can't get. Mo and Luc seem to be fighting over her and Lily doesn't know why. Frankly speaking, I was afraid it would be another Edward-Jacob-Bella triangle, but it turned out to be better than that. No spoilers here, sorry.

I recommend this book to YA readers. I assume there's going to be a continuation, and I'd be interested in taking a look at book 2.

Oh wow I was enjoying this so much that I just didn’t want it to end!

Bam! Straight up I’m giving this a FIVE out of Five stars. I’m trying to figure out what I liked best about this book, but words fail me. It’s a young adult book but it deals with some major issues (Death, Loss, Love, Guilt, God, Good vs Evil). I think it would suit from anyone from the age 12 to 102 and leave everyone craving more. It made me warm and fuzzy inside. There was Drama and Suspense, Love and Romance and the ongoing battle of good and evil.
You can tell that this book is leading up to an epic series; I’m really looking forward to the next book to see where it goes.

5.0 out of 5 stars So ready for the next one! 16 June 2015
By Sunshine_80 - Published on Amazon.com

I read the first book in this series this weekend. I started it at like 6AM on Saturday and was finished Saturday night. I would have been done before that because I could not put it down but I had plans. I thought about cancelling so that I could finish this book. It has been a while since I have been that into a book.

So the book starts out with Lily going to a party with her friends and they die. Lily ends up waking up and has to deal with the fact that she survived and they didn't. She moves to another town and ends up being friends with some interesting people. They have a lot of secrets and Lily tries to figure it all out. They help her heal a little bit from the loss of her friends.

I don't like saying too much in reviews but I was a little annoyed with Lily. Then I thought how would I act if I was the only survivor of a wreck? So then I was a lot more accepting of her. I can say I was not a fan of Mo from the beginning. Not really sure what it was at first but I didn't like him. Luc was a little bit better for me.



Seriously, go get this book and read it so that you can jump into the next book. I am really glad that don't have to wait very long get started on The Devil Made Me Do It. I am so ready to figure out how to go home "sick" from work today so I can read!!! I am giving the Speak of the Devil 4.5 stars out of 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Speak of the Devil - review 8 July 2014
By Nancy M. Griffis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So yeah. Not ashamed to admit I read this book in one night. It helped that I’m not working at the moment, mostly because I didn’t have to deal with a lack-of-sleep hangover the next day. ;o)

From the blurb: What happens when falling in love and falling from grace collide?

After dying in a car accident with her two best friends, Lily miraculously awakens to grief and guilt. She escapes to her dad’s to come to terms with the event and meets some people at her new school who seem all too eager to help her heal. Sliding deeper into sorrow and trying to fight her feelings for two of them, she finds out who…what they really are and that they are falling too.

Can she find the strength to move on from the past, reconcile her feelings for Luc, find a way to stop a divine war with fallen angels, and still pass the eleventh grade?

What I liked best about this book was the characterization of Lily. She’s a pretty together girl when it starts and then devolves, but not completely; at her “worst,” Lily never really loses the core of herself. Throw in a new high school, trying to fit in there and with a family she hasn’t lived with full time before, and her gumption grows instead of falters. I could list examples, but that would be spoiling.

It was an unusual plot, too, which I appreciated a lot. Between dealing with her feelings, the angel twist on the love triangle, and the mysterious question that even the angels don’t know the answer to – why are so many of them in the same place? – Speak of the Devil gives the reader plenty to dig into. I did wish for more detail in places, but then, that’s probably me being greedy. ;o)

The good news is the sequel – The Devil Made Me Do It – is out now. The bad news is I have to get up at a decent hour tomorrow so I can’t stay up all night again and finish reading it all at once. Do yourself a favor and read this on the weekend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 8 September 2013
By Jennifer Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As an adult, I've recently found that I love those precious few Young Adult novels that break through the age barrier. This is one of those books that appeals to those from pre-teens to adults. Like Harry Potter, Twilight, and James Patterson's Witch & Wizard series, this book is written to engage people of all ages (with the exception of very young kids) and draw some of us back to a time when the seating in the lunchroom was by clique. Teens will enjoy the similarity to their own lives, and those of us a bit older love the memories of what was, to us, an easier time.

But Lily's life isn't easy after her two friends drown and she's left the only survivor. Even moving to a new town, a new school doesn't seem to help. But when Lily meets a group of Theater Kids, she finds that life is not exactly as she knew it. Suddenly there are explanations, but even more questions. And then there's Luc, a mysterious boy, enchanting. Could he be the one to bring her back?

The writing flows easily, and the dialog is crisp and entertaining. But it's the mystery that drew me in. Every time I thought I had it figured out, I found I was wrong, and a new question was added to the list. By the end, I felt as if I'd been going from one dimension to another. Now I await the sequel with bated breath! Ms. Romkey is a talented writer, and very much in touch with her inner-teen. I look forward not only to the sequels, but whatever else she decides to write. With an imagination like hers, the sky's the limit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Me & My Kid!!! 30 August 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I like to read the young adult novels that my kids read. Partly I want to make sure the content is appropriate, but it also gives us something in common to talk about and something to get excited about together. Often times, this can be a grueling process when the book is so geared towards kids that it's agonizing for adults.
This was NOT the case for Speak of the Devil. I enjoyed this book just as much as my daughter did. It was engaging and creative and we are both anxiously awaiting the sequel.
Author Shawna Romkey kept the story moving at a fast enough pace to keep my teen amused while still giving a depth of storyline that worked for me too. I encourage readers of all ages to take the time to read this book. You won't be disappointed.

This is an excellent story about the fight between GOOD and EVIL. Not just a regular war however,it is between ANGELS and DEMONS and even the not so everyday humans who are needed are used , by both sides. A well thought out plot, in my opinion , is very entertaining and it is also the start of a series. So be prepared to be drawn into the the story too. I totally enjoyed it , so I RECOMMEND!
