Satan’s Sword is book two of the urban fantasy Imp series. (See my review for Book #1 A Demon Bound here)
Samantha Martin (Sam) lived undetected in the human world for forty years, until she was asked to kill a rogue angel. Since then, several rumours have spread about her, which to Sam’s innocent surprise, seem to have raised her profile among the paranormal societies.
In this book, Sam’s foster brother Dar asks her to pick up a demon artefact from a group of vampires, leading to more ups and downs and quandaries for Sam. In a brilliantly comic scenario, Sam tries to make money out of squatters at her new canal side property; I loved this part.
These books are filled with humour as Sam leaves a trail of death and destruction in her path. Her demon powers and lust for blood are counteracted by her passion, loyalty and crazy nature. At one point I had tears of laughter rolling down my face and I chuckled through several other incidents while reading this. I like this series, the author has put a fresh twist on paranormal beings and it works well for me. I can’t wait to see what adventures there are in book three.

Samantha Martin is an imp, bound by an angel who allows her to live among the humans . . . as long as she follows his rules. It’s not easy for an imp to follow the rules, especially when Sam’s brother, Dar, finds himself in hot water. He needs her help to retrieve an artifact from the vampires, or the powerful demon he owes a favor to will enslave and torture him for centuries.
It should be a simple courier job, but with demons nothing is simple. Sam reluctantly attempts to help her brother, trying not antagonize the vampires or the demon gunning for him, all while chafing to comply with the restrictions her angel has placed on her as a bound demon.
