Title: The Devil’s Game
Author: Charlotte Munro
Inspired by True Events.
“You and me and the Devil makes three…”
Willow Hargraves hasn’t been to her home town of Gallows Hill in ten years, not since the accident that left her with no memory and a body filled with scars.
Dealing with her traumatic past and an onslaught of memories, Willow’s safe little world comes crashing down around her when she encounters Zayn Miller.
He leads her down a dark path where her memories are unleashed, bringing her to a crossroads in her life. A painful past behind her and a dangerous future ahead. She is near cracking point.
Roman Pierce is the darkness that haunts her every move, and her every nightmare. And he’s playing a dangerous game. The trio are lost in a twisted labyrinth of blood, dark magic jealousy and lust but will they learn that the Devil shouldn’t be messed with?
A town marked by evil, sinful deeds that lures the darkness out in everyone. Roman and Zayn take Willow on a trip through hell, forcing her to remember that night ten years ago.
She wasn’t the only one bearing scars.
She wasn’t the only one wanting answers.
Roman Pierce was hiding more than scars on his wrists…
We are all pawns in The Devil’s Game, but in this dangerous game between the three of them, who will win?

Dark, Mysterious, and Engaging.
The Devil’s Game was definitely hard to put down once I picked it up. Willow Hargraves was always an outcast. So when she was accepted by Zayne Miller and Roman Pierce, she was happy to belong. She never knew that making friends could cost her her life.
I love the way the author slowly reels us in by patching pieces of the story until at least we’re given the entire tale in the explosive conclusion. Willow, Zayne, and Roman were all haunting characters, each leaving impressions in their own way. Willow was especially easy to relate to. Sad, haunted, and broken, I sympathized with her the most, hoping she would overcome everything thrown at her.
In the end she did. In a way. The story ends in sort of a cliffhanger, one that I would be very interested in seeing turned into a sequel. I would love to see what happens next to Roman and Willow.
