Deziree Davanzatti is a thief by trade and to keep herself occupied between jobs, she owns and operates
Onyx, a trendy nightclub for the supernatural citizens of New York City.
What else would a 400-something year old demon-human hybrid do with her spare time?
Following a drunken night of questionable decisions, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne leaves town
with no explanation. Dez is left wondering if they made a mistake and if it cost her a price she wasn’t
willing to pay – her best friend and confidant.
When he returns after two weeks of no contact, he comes bearing grave news that could potentially
change the world forever….or end it all together. To make matters worse, they suspect that someone
they know may be behind it all.
An extremely dangerous chain of events has been set in motion and it is up to Dez and Vegas, with the
help of his brother Lucas, to find a way to stop it.
From the author of Burning, the short story prequel, comes The Devil You Know, the first full length novel
in the Demon Legacy series by J.M. Gregoire.
J.M. Gregoire was born and raised in New Hampshire, USA and despite her abhorrence for any season

When I read Burning, the prequel to The Devil You Know, I fell in love with the character of Lucas right away. He’s a scamp, but scamp’s have feelings too, you know. By the end of Burning, I needed to know more about Lucas and what he does next.
When Jena sent me the ARC for The Devil You Know, I jumped in right away and started reading. And oh my GOSH, I took to Dez and Vegas right away, their stories and their love for one another. Dez and Vegas have been best buds for, oh about four centuries, when they decide to have sex. Dez wakes up from their night of whoopie to find that Vegas is gone. Yeah, he’s a bit of a scamp like his brother Lucas.
But when Vegas finally comes back to see Dez, he’s got a terrible story to tell. Vegas, Dez, and Lucas set off on a global search to find a demon, and save the world from…well that would be telling. I don’t want to give anything away.
The Devil You Know is rip-roaring urban fantasy that’s sexy as hell and will make you weep, the way any good story should do. It’s a story about friendship, love, betrayal, and commitment. And it’s also about solving a mystery, no matter what the personal cost.
J.M. Gregoire has crafted a beautiful, fun, and heartbreaking story. The characters are believable supernaturals, and I’m in total admiration of the hybrid Dez. She’s smart, mouthy, sassy, and a warrior woman. The dialogue is well crafted, keeping the story moving along at a nice clip. The settings that the trio travel to are exotic and made me wish I was there with them. I want to know these characters in real life, damn it, and for me, as a reader, there is no greater compliment.
I have one complaint about The Devil You Know: It was over to soon, dang it!
5 stars for The Devil You Know.
