Lorcan promises all she ever dreamed of and asks for nothing in return. Her twin sister, Havilar, urges Farideh to resist the devil’s sway. But Farideh’s not so sure. Lorcan may be dangerous but the power he offers is exhilarating.
In the ruins of Neverwinter, Farideh’s doubts get tangled up in a devilish snare six layers deep. A succubus playing human pawns against an otherworldly foe sees the twins as obstacles in her path. And Lorcan’s monstrous sisters have their eyes on the city - and on Farideh. There’s no time to question her pact with Lorcan - it will take every ounce of Farideh’s newfound powers to get out of Neverwinter alive.

A great story with a headache sprinkled over top.
Would you try another book from Erin M. Evans and/or Dina Pearlman?
Of course. The first Brimstone Angles book was fantastic, and the author as well as the narrator do a great job through and through. This particular book, however, will test your patience with the AUDIOBOOK format.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Tam. He's finally got a chance to shine in this novel and gives a better understanding of life as a cleric, harper, and as a troubled man. His moments are my favorite for the first half of the book.
What three words best describe Dina Pearlman’s performance?
"I really tried." The issue, and the point of me WRITING a review, is that this book is completely smothered in flashbacks, cross scenes (where two separate scenes are happening at the same time, flipping between them both). Pearlman does a great job with her character voices, in my opinion, but most of these flashback scenes and illusory details end up sounding like a paragraph with no punctuation - no way of telling what she's talking about or why.
I would have preferred if there was a tonal difference between the present and flashbacks as well as a pause between scenes and flashbacks.
[Example]"A hand reached out and rested on her shoulder why hadn't Tam come to check on Dahl's progress?"
Did Brimstone Angels: Lesser Evils inspire you to do anything?
Buy the next two books - which is all an author can hope for!
Any additional comments?
Please please please please realize there will be scenes in this book that will not make sense at all unless you're paying close attention. Whenever something sounds confusing to you - i suggest you back the audobook up a fair amount and re-listen more closely. Take a breath, don't get mad, and realize that it's SUPPOSED to be disjointed and off-putting in those particular parts. As readers, most of us would re-read those lines 2 or 3 times before moving on, you don't get that option listening to the audio. Just bear with it.

There is a great dungeon crawl in here!!!
A lot of this book focuses on the relationship between Farideh and the devil she is bound to (Lorcan). I found myself wanting to scream at the audio book, "Quit being so stupid, Farideh! He is a manipulative, controlling, BASTARD!!!" But that is the point, isn't it? As frustrating as it is to read about a teenager in basically an abusive relationship (mostly mental abuse) it is well done and is believable.
Meanwhile her sister Havilar continues to be a fun contrast.
A good deal of this book deals with a party in a dungeon crawl complete with traps, ancient secrets, and party members with contrasting goals. I thought this part was very well done and I really enjoyed the unraveling of the mystery of the place.
All in all a great listen. The narrator does a good job of given each character a 'voice' as well.
