Book review and Giveaway: Snowballs in Hell by Eve Langlais

Muriel, the princess of Hell is back and is has a problem. Ever since she came face to face with the hooded being that tried to kill her, Muriel wakes up every night screaming in fear. Muriel gets her magic from sex and the only way to brake the fear curse is for her to sleep with two men at once so gains enough power to destroy it.

I liked that Muriel’s reaction to this news was an automatic no. She loves Auric and does not want to betray him by having sex with another man. Just because she is the devil’s daughter that doesn’t mean she doesn’t believe in being faithful. It’s actually Auric who convinces her to allow his best friend to join them. I’m generally not a fan of reading threesomes because I don’t believe a person, even a fictional one, can say they love someone more than anything then turn around and say the exact same thing to another. And in some stories yet another person. But Eve did a really good job making this about helping Muriel and not about just adding sex and random emotions to the story. There were several scenes that would make a grown woman be jealous of Muriel. The relationship between Muriel and Auric is as strong as ever but Muriel has also made room in her heart for her new shapeshifter lover.

Aside from Muriel’s relationship dilemma and having to fight of the usual assassination attempts, Hell has literally frozen over and the mysterious hooded man is at the heart of it all. The story isn’t too dark and it has a lot of humor to it. The sex is hot and the characters are fun in this highly enjoyable novella. I liked the second book in Eve Langlais’ series as much as the first and I look forward to seeing what she cooks up next for Muriel.
