College student Kayla Monroe seems to have everything Stunning looks smarts and loads of money thanks to her privileged upbringing But something’s gone wrong Ever since the start of her sopho year people have been avoiding her Her friends shun her Guys no longer flock to her Even her former stalker an awkward geek now wants nothing to do with herShe is on the brink of utter despair when she encount. This is just my second Bryan Smith novel read; the first being crazy backwoods horror Depraved some time ago19 year old college student Kayla Monroe is a mean girl with the looks brains and privilege to amplify the point She’s used to being the centre of attention and getting her own way especially with the opposite sex Things take an unpleasant turn in her sopho year and for reasons unbeknown to her Kayla has abruptly turned into a social pariah Even her old stalker runs in the opposite direction to avoid herDesperately lonely Kayla finds the answer one afternoon whilst visiting her favourite spot in the park For the first time in ages someone gives her the time of day it’s just a pity that someone happens to be the Devil himself with a solution to her unnaturally shitty social predicament Can Kayla really bring herself to do what is reuired and literally sell her soul to get things back to the way they wereKayla and the Devil was an entertaining read but not at all the gory violent horror I had albeit happily braced myself for This was a pleasantly surprising paranormal urban fantasy read which I would recommend to friends of mine who like that genre with an added biteOne of the main things I liked about Bryan Smith’s writing in Depraved was the lively dialogue which had a good dose of wit and sarcasm In this story there is of that and I found myself laughing at some of the things Kayla said or her mental observations which she somehow managed to keep to herself I also love it when an author makes me like a primarily unlikable character Kayla is a cow but I couldn’t help sympathise with her the hopeless and crazy situations she found herself inI wasn’t too keen on the ending but I’m still looking forward to reading book two of Kayla’s misadventures

Kayla and the DevilBut now her past has come back to haunt her Someone wants revenge Bad enough to engage the services of the devil But the tables have turned again and the devil now has his own deal to offer KaylaHe can end her suffering End the shunning spell But only at a very high price And Kayla must decide whether she has it within herself to surrender her soul and commit an act so heinous it will damn her foreve. Kayla and the Devil is the first novel Bryan Smith wrote after the death of his wife Rachel and he dedicates this one to her I had heard about his troubles a while before picking this one up and along with feeling sympathy for the guy I wanted to see if his writing had changed in any way I figured he would write a very bitter novel about how the world was created by being shit out of the unclean ass of a less than adeuate god but thankfully Smith does not go in this direction Instead he ventures into the land of urban fantasy; a land that I know very little about The book follows Kayla's troubles and her efforts to rectify them by completing a task for the devil See that The title is relevant to the story Since Kayla has been cursed by the father of one of her classmates she is now shunned by the whole of society and believe me this is definitely a good thing for society to do to someone like this Kayla was partially responsible for this girl's suicide and her father has made a deal with the devil to make sure that Kayla knows what it feels like to live the way his daughter did Anyway the book has the feel of a game since the devil gives our horrible disgusting mouthy cunt of a main character a time limit to kill uh I mean perform said task The real fun of the novel is solely in the plot I could not put this book down because I really wanted to know how this annoying college ueef was going to do what needed to be done and I was also interested to see who all the devil was going to send to help her Jack AKA Alfred the Ripper is one of these interesting characters Now if you are like me you may be wondering why such a terrible person Kayla wouldn't be able to do whatever it is that the devil wishes of her Well apparently she has a bit of a conscience which makes this book progress nicelyNow the main flaw with this book and with every other Smith novel I have read is the writing I swear it is like he is writing for high school drop outs or something His descriptions are so horrible sometimes that I would have dropped this book for good if his plot wasn't amazing Every now and then his actual writing skills would shine through like gold coins floating in a sewer but for the most part he chooses to write badly Chooses is the key word there because I know he is much better than this I understand if he is trying to be uniue but I don't get why he is doing it in this way On top of that his dialog is about as horrible as the actual writing and reminded me of some of Brian Keene's annoying novels like Kill Whitey and Castaways If you aren't really bothered by prose and can read anything as long as the story is engaging you should really like this book but if you are one of those people who complain about Stephen King's writing uality you probably won't be able to get through this Treat yourself to something by Peter Straub Clive Barker Tim Curran or Tim Lebbon instead

review Kayla and the Devil Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ College student Kayla Monroe seems to have everything Stunning looks smarts and loads of money thanks to her privileged upbringing But something’s gone wrong Ever since the start of her sopho year people have been avoiding her Her friends shun her Guys no longer flock to her EveErs a young man in the park The man is charming and movie star handsome Kayla thinks maybe her luck has taken a turn for the better But she couldn’t be wrong Because this man is the Devil Capital D definitely intended The ultimate embodiment of evil And he has something to tell KaylaKayla hasn’t always been the nicest girl in the world At times she has been downright mean She’s grown past that. Kayla and the Devil was a very good novel from the warped mind of Bryan Smith Kayla meets the devil standing by a tree He's got a deal for her A crappy deal A damned if you do damned if you don't kind of deal Kayla is not a very nice person and likes to cut people down with her sharp tongue Can she complete the devils deal and free herself from the fires of hellI couldn't help but make comparisons to Jeff Strand while getting into this one but the further I read on I realized that Bryan has his own tale to tell and does it with his own voice style and wit A well done fast paced sharp and entertaining read Evidently this one is very tame for Mr Smith so I am off to get some of his backlog and check out some of his splatterpunk work
