The team at Sin du Jour—New York’s exclusive caterers-to-the-damned—find themselves up against their toughest challenge, yet when they’re lured out west to prepare a feast in the most forbidding place in America: Hollywood, where false gods rule supreme.

Meanwhile, back at home, Ritter is attacked at home by the strangest hit-squad the world has ever seen, and the team must pull out all the stops if they’re to prevent themselves from being offered up as the main course in a feast they normally provide

Starring: The Prince of Lies, Lena Tarr, Darren Vargas. With Byron Luck. Introducing: the Easter Bunny.

Pride’s Spell is the third installment in Matt Wallace’s Sin du Jour series.





**Thank you to Netgalley , the publisher and author for a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

Here’s another stunning cover in the Sin du Jour series and I expect nothing less!

The interwebz informs me that Peter Lutjen is responsible for the cover art of this series, so mega props from me! (Check out those links, I just lost half an hour of my life trawling through his interview and cover art)

To the story! I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as I did Lustlocked, but I guess it’s tough to bear giant lizardy lust monsters.

I adore the concept of a catering company which serves the supernatural community, bringing together both of my main passions in life – the supernatural and food.
This book joins the staff of Sin du Jour only a few weeks where the shenanigans of the last book left off.

Wallace’s writing style is fantastic, he’s sharp, witty and doesn’t pull any punches. He takes potentially philosophical and meaningful situations and throws in Shitzhus, what’s not to love?

This book saw some more development of the main characters, which has kept me anxious to read the next book in the series. They’re so easy to read and the ‘novella’ concept means that I can easily fit the book into a couple of lunch hours.

My favourite part of this book has to be the attack of the Easter Bunny, his weapon of choice being a basket full of Easter eggs with lethal powers. The fast paced action in this book is a pleasure to read.

If you’re a fan of supernatural comedy, Joss Whedon-esque humour or the book Sacrificial Lamb Cake (the review of which I’ll be posting on this site shortly), this series is sure to be a hit!


‘”Underwhelmed” is the wrong word to describe Lena’s experience at her first Hollywood party. “Bored as monkey fuck” is the phrase that comes more naturally to mind’ – Pride’s Spell by Matt Wallace
