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.

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

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut Novel! 7 March 2013
By M. E. Wilson - Published on
Lily Tyler dies and is revived after a tragic accident that takes the lives of her two best friends. Broken-hearted, she moves to live with her father and his family. At her new school strange events and new friends (who are themselves a bit strange) surround her as she tries to come to grips with sorrow and loss.

This debut YA novel by Shawna Romkey can be enjoyed by adults. Lily is realistic, multi-layered and very sympathetic. She immediately draws you into her life and situation. Some of other characters are odd and somehow "off", as perceived by Lily, but she's drawn into their world by the charismatic Luc and quirky Mo.

Tightly written, well paced, with an interesting premise, Romkey pulls you into the story easily. This was a very fast read and an excellent debut novel for Romkey. I highly recommend it and can't wait to read her next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars loved this book 10 July 2013
By Amanda - Xscape From Reality With A Book - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
wow. simply amazing. this book hit some really tough topics. death and religion. it had normal teenage stuff, parties, young love, and friendship as well. I have never experienced death first hand, so close to me, as the ,ain character, Lily did. but with Ms. Romkey's writing, I ached for Lily, I cried, I felt her pain. I mulled over all the details, sorting things out alongside her. I cheered for Luc, and the other guardians, when it came to the battle. I had hope for Mo, at the end. and the ending, wow. before I read the name, I wasn't sure, but then it clicked. can't wait to read more!

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, well-written YA debut from Shawna Romkey 28 March 2013
By Katie O'Sullivan - Published on
This well-written debut novel features a quirky heroine who struggles with issues of self-doubt and self-discovery. Ms. Romkey does a nice job of bringing the reader into Lily's world, and making us root for her to succeed. The narrator's often sarcastic and self-deprecating asides will appeal to teen and adult readers alike as we watch Lily try to make sense of her world.

The story is told in first person, entirely from Lily's point of view. She's a typical teenager, and seems fine with being her own person, slightly on the nerdy side and happy to do her own thing, hanging out with two best friends. When their car crashes, it throws Lily's life into a tailspin - especially as all three teens die in the crash, but somehow Lily alone comes back to life.

Angry, bewildered and feeling more than a little bit lost, she moves to her dad's house to get away from the painful memories. At her new school, she meets a group of teens who are not what they appear, but she can't quite put her finger on what it is that's different about them. And there the plot thickens, with a few twists and turns thrown in for good measure. I don't want to give anything away, as watching Lily unfold each mystery is part of the fun of the book. And it is definitely a fast, fun book.

A solid debut novel, I look forward to reading more from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival Instinct Battles Survivor's Guilt 7 March 2013
By Kate Robbins - Published on
"There was gas in the tank, a cell phone charger in the car, an angel sitting next to me, what did I have to lose?"

Sole survivor of a tragic car accident, teenage Lily struggles to carry on with her life after losing her two best friends. Lily's attempt to escape the torment of survivor's guilt fails and her despair follows her to a new town and a new school. I felt her agony every step of the way.

Romkey does an incredible job of drawing the reader into every ounce of anguish Lily feels all the while holding onto the slightest hope things will get better. Survival instinct battles survivor's guilt and I think that's what sets this book apart. The theme is mature and raw and real. Lily needs saving.

Enter a hellishly irresistible angel. But she doesn't know it yet. If ever the was an angel a girl could fall for, Luc is it. The pull Lily experiences towards him escalates as the plot takes a gripping turn. Angels, fallen angels and an absent God, this book kept me spellbound right from page one.

Speak of the Devil is the first in Romkey's epic series and I cannot wait for more from this debut author.
