The Devil’s Dreamcatcher (The Devil’s Intern)
Medusa’s life is Hell, literally. She’s the new intern in the Devil’s accounting office, and she’s taken on more than she bargained for. As she meets fellow intern Mitchell and his friends–Viking Alfarin and kindhearted Elinor–Hell goes into lockdown. Someone has stolen an item of immense power from the Devil, and it’s up to Medusa, Mitchell, Alfarin, and Elinor to retrieve it. They’re Team DEVIL, and they’re in a race against time, interfering angels, and a monstrous thief to prevent the apocalypse.
In this sequel to The Devil’s Intern, Team DEVIL reunites and we discover none of the characters remember the big twist from the previous book. Now, to be fair, I wasn’t entirely sold on that twist in the first place, but The Devil’s Dreamcatcher manages to dissuade those doubts and hit the ground running with a sense of urgency and energy.
This is a much darker outing than the first, but the core themes of friendship and destiny remain. The bonds of Team DEVIL are unshaken by tragedy or failure, and as they steamroll towards a third adventure to come, I’m optimistic that Hosie will continue to do these characters justice.
