Saturday Stars – 09 June 2018 – Devyl Bane

When your 1.5yo nephew comes to visit and stays over, forget about having any free time to sit down and draft a post. You can set him up with his toys but his attention span’s like 5 minutes so pretty soon, those sticky little hands come typing at the keys of my laptop lol.

Idk why he finds other stuff way more fun than his own toys. So that’s how my Saturday is going on so far – running after a 1.5yo bunny on a super-charged battery. Yep, it exhausts me just watching him.

Saturday Star: Devyl Bane
Book/Series: Deadman’s Cross series – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Devyl “Duel” Bane, the Captain of a crew of Deadmen, was in one word, captivating. I absolutely loved him from the moment his character was introduced. And as I got to know more about his past and what made him tick, he grabbed hold of my heart and just wouldn’t let go.

He was a warlord back when he was alive and he did things that he wasn’t proud of. But the world isn’t just black and white. It’s shades of gray in between. And his feelings for Mara were so heartbreaking because she seemed to hate him without giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Marcelina “Mara” with her morals and skewered view of the world and her people was kind of annoying at first. I hated how she didn’t seem to see Devyl, the real him and not the monster she thought he was. It’s hard when people don’t see your truth and only see what they want to. No matter what you tell them, no proof will ever be enough.

However, Mara redeemed herself and turned out to be a perfect fit for Devyl. I love that Devyl finally got some hint of happiness, which he deserved after everything he’d gone through.


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
