Devil’s Pawn (Devil’s Pawn Duet #1) by Natasha Knight. This is the story of Jericho St. James, a Sovereign Son who lost his fiance at the hands of a Bishop. The Bishop’s are part of the original family of the Society. I thought Jericho’s seemed familiar. It was pointed out to me that he is in another of this author’s books. Since Jericho wants revenge for his fiance, he decides to take his nemesis half sister Isabelle. Again that sounded familiar which is like another of this author’s book about the Society. But do not fret. There is so much more to Jericho and Isabelle’s story. Jericho is a grade a jerk. I would love to use stronger words to describe my disdain for Jericho. My heart goes out to Isabelle. There are so many secrets and trying to know who is telling the real truth or if they are leaving out some of the truth makes this story. I enjoy a good suspenseful story. The intrigue has me looking forward to the next book. I hope Jericho can redeem himself. There is a family secret that has me guessing as to what will be revealed. Than there is Jericho’s end game of revenge and exactly how far will he go. By the end of this book, we got to see part of his plan. Poor Isabelle, she doesn’t know who to trust. So sheltered aka Jericho’s pawn. 4.5 star for me.
Devil’s Pawn by Natasha Knight
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Devil’s Pawn is the first book in the Devil’s Pawn Duet. This is Jericho St. James and Isabelle Bishop.
Jericho is after revenge and he is looking to hit the Bishop’s where it hurts. Isabelle is to pay for the sins of another.
Get ready for this cliffhanger. Of course you knew there would be one, didn’t you? I loved the magnetism between Isabelle and Jericho. It’s like magnets, opposites attract.
Another very good book by Natasha Knight! Now I can’t wait for the next book Devil’s Redemption to find out what happens next!!! It can’t come soon enough!
Bettina’s Book Review: 4 Stars
While it took me some time to remember where I knew Jericho from (a previous book) I was glad to remember before going crazy. I will not spoil it for those who want to remember on their own, for those who want to know the book was released about 5-6 months ago. I am glad to be out of my book funk. I enjoyed this book, could it have been less predictable in the end yes but beggars can’t be choosy. I didn’t give it higher stars because I feel like it is a repeat of Santiago and Ivy story. Yes there are some changes but a lot similarities. With this said I am still looking forward to book two. I want to see how things will play out between Jericho and Isabelle. Will she stay true to her sweet nature side and forgive him for what he did or will she surprise us and do something crazy? 🤷🏾♀️
