A Familiar Tangle with Hell by Sapphire Phelan

Posted March 22, 2012 by Kate in Liked It, Review / 1 Comment

Tina and Charun thought it was all over and that their life would be normal—well, as normal as it could be for an immortal Witch and her demon Familiar. Except there was another prophesy, one that laid claim that if Lucifer snatches Tina and mates with her before the last chime before midnight of the new year and gets her pregnant with his son, that the real Armageddon would begin, spelling the end of life as they knew it. 
When Tina is stolen away, Charun, along with Jacokb the archangel, must race against time into the bowels of Hell to rescue her. But with demons, Lucifer, and a cute demon bunny with fangs out of a Monty Python nightmare, out to stop them and Heaven not lending a hand, will Tina become the mother of the Antichrist and the start of a new Hell on Earth?

After a much needed vacation, this is my first review back. The book to me seemed interesting right off the bat because of the cover. I mean here you have this girl looking like she standing right in the middle of hell and who is next to her? A bunny? I knew there had to be some kind of explanation and I was more than ready to read the book to find out. 
To start off this book is most definitely an erotic novel. There are some pretty explicit sex scenes, so if that is not your cup of tea, then I would not recommend this book. However if it is your cup of tea then this book might in fact be the book for you. The books sex scenes are well written and if you are a person who enjoys erotica I am pretty sure this would be a book you would enjoy. 
I was also a little bit excited about the biblical origins of this story. The books plot is definitely based in religion as well as having a lot to do with demons. I have recently enjoyed reading books about angels, which have almost always incorporated some level of demons in them. I do enjoy books about demons, and this book was a pretty interesting combination of different ideas into one really enjoyable plot. 
I thought the chemistry was really good and well written between Charun and Tina. And if you are thinking like I was how are a bunny and a witch going to get down and dirty, I suggest you read the book to find out, because it works. 
The only downsides to this book were that there were parts within the book that lagged. It was never a really bad thing though, the parts that did lag picked up quickly enough for it not to be a huge problem for the reader. I also did notice a couple of editing issues, but they were very minimal and I don’t think the average reader would find them annoying enough to matter within the story itself. 
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. It was a really fun read, and a good way to start after my temporary hiatus from book reading. I think people who enjoy paranormal romance and erotic will enjoy this book. I don’t think who have issues with reading graphic sex scenes would enjoy this book, but if you do then this is definitely a book you should check out.
