House of the Devil (The Hellish Ones Book 2) by Crea Reitan
The lines between good and evil have blurred.
After our eight year old son accidentally wrote a letter to Satan instead of Santa last Christmas, our lives turned pretty hellish quite quickly. The pasts of my husbands and I caught up and suddenly, we find ourselves relocating to Hell to live in the House of the Devil.
Here’s what you need to know:
Satan enjoys tampering with biology. When he adds his blood to someone else’s, he refers to them as one of the Hellish Ones. The results are never what you expect and eventually, their household becomes hunted for termination by angels.
The ghost that has haunted one of my husbands for years has suddenly become somewhat corporeal, leaving us with a whole lot of questions.
And at least one angel has been involved with child trafficking but not as a hero – as an abuser.
When the angels unintentionally reveal more secrets, we’re quick to realize that there’s something bigger going on and it matters which side of good and bad you’ve aligned yourself with. The problem is deciding which truly has the evil intent.
This is a polyamorous story with content not suitable for those under 18 years of age due to graphic content.

You definitely need to read the first book before reading this one, as book one sets the scene, and book two continues with the story.
Seren and her family now live in Hell, courtesy of Satan…… it’s taken a lot of adjustment for Seren and her men (yup, more than one) Satan likes to pop in whenever and wherever he likes!! And the past of each character came home to roost (see that’s why you need to read book one) this puts a strain on their relationship. We read about how Seren and her family combat each problem, we watch as a few bumps in the road almost end this relationship.
I did like the family unit is already established and that they have a child. It’s not a new relationship, and it’s good to read that it’s still a work in progress, it’s not all sunshine and roses.
I love their son, he’s such a character. And all the animals that live in Hell. The author certainly let her imagination run wild with a few of those creatures. 😆
There are a few surprises that caught me out, and I did have a few OMG moments…..
The angels were a great addition, as they don’t behave like angels are suppose to! Through in a few ghosts….. and we’ve got mayhem aplenty.
I’m hoping we get another story in this series. A few questions that need answering. And I’m sure Satan hasn’t finished with this cute family.
A highly recommend read, but I’d definitely pick up book one first.
