    1. So far I ve been scaring myself silly with this book Reading at night is not recommended for those with an over active imagination Curious to see where the story leads but in the meantime enjoying the ride.Update It s taken me a few weeks to complete this book with good reason I d previously enjoyed Gustainis books and recommended them to friends This is one I would definitely not recommend The third book in an otherwise strong series has really jumped the shark Firstly, the pace is sluggish Gus [...]

    3. Sympathy for the Devil is the third book in a series, but don t let that deter you from picking up this dark, snarky, entertaining story As a matter of fact, it s nice to know that there are other books in the series, as I ll be able to catch up while waiting for the next installment in the series There is a lot going on in this story, and it certainly is timely A presidential election is looming and candidates are out trying to shore up their positions and emerge at the head of the pack for the [...]

    4. Sympathy for the Devil is the third book in the Morris and Chastain Investigation series by Justin Gustainis Quincey Morris is a paranormal investigator and Libby Chastain is a white witch and occasionally their work brings them together This time it s because a presidential candidate has been possessed by a demon determined to make it to the White House and hell has sent its very own assassin to sort things out.The premise is a good one but I felt that too much time was spent on politics and th [...]

    5. This has been my biggest surprise of the year so far I did not expect to like this book because the plot is so similar to that of one of my favorite horror novels, Graham Masterton s THE HELL CANDIDATE The basic plot of both A presidential candidate is possessed by a demon, and the world is doomed if he wins I traded e mails with Justin Gustainis He had never heard of THE HELL CANDIDATE and was surprised that no one had ever mentioned it to him before Well, it seems that two writers can have the [...]

    6. Sigh, where to begin This book was awful Morris and Chastain are barely in the book Morris takes a character turn early in the book that makes absolutely no sense at all, then is cured almost instantly when he needs to be Maybe 10% of the book seems to be about him A character pops up who is far, far, interesting than the so called main characters of the series a former CIA hitman returned to Earth from Hell in order to kill a demon infested presidential candidate He made me instantly stop cari [...]

    7.

    9. I love the two main characters The story isn t as strong as the previous two especially the second book The blurb says it almost all and the prologue pretty much sets the villains It is written as the other two, with short scenes featuring different characters That could be e great thing in if an author wants to give us a different perspective or the view into the other side, but really not so great in this case Even if I am not that interested in political system of the USA, I would find some n [...]

    10. Sympathy for the Devil, the third book in the Quincy Morris series, is a paranormal thriller in which the race against evil in whatever form you imagine it is the core of the plot.I don t think I ve ever read of so many main characters in a story, all fundamental for its development This is the first book I read in this series but not the author s first , but I was right to think it s a stand alone There is a lot of past history for the leading guys, but you can read this without needing them at [...]

    11. Quincey Morris and Libby Chastain investigate paranormal stuff Libby is a white witch and Quincey is following the family business On Halloween, presidential contender Howard Stark is possessed by the demon Sargatanas, thanks to his administrative assistant, Mary Margaret Doyle However, thanks to the factions who contend against each other in the NetherWorld, another demon, Astaroth, sends a former CIA assassin back to Earth to kill Stark before he can be elected and begin Armaggedon Lots and lo [...]

    13. Demonic interference with politics, Morris discovers that the aftereffects of being caught by demon fire isn t good and can cost some people He goes through a downward spiral that needs Chastain to drag him out of it and they also have to try to work out how to defeat a demon who has Armageddon in mind.Interesting and I like the characters, they are not all powerful and they do have flaws, and there are times when you wonder what they plan to do next The bad guys were also interesting and I coul [...]

    14. 3.5 stars.I ve said before I think Gustainis goes overboard with the sex and that was certainly my impression this time I m not opposed to sex in novels but there was enough here that it was just repetitive It was not graphic however The story was interesting It involved competing factions in Hell and exorcisms, among other things Plot wise I had an issue though view spoiler So the demon can heal itself easily but not of a coma I m not convinced that makes sense hide spoiler

    15. I bought this book from a bargain bin for 50p Really wasn t expecting to enjoy this, but absolutely loved it The story grips you from start to finish, even if you haven t read the earlier books in the series The only criticism would be that the ending is a bit predictable, but can t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series

    16. I didn t like this one as much as the previous books in the series The political setting was a bit mind numbing could be because I read this in the spring of 16 , and there was also a LOT of switching back and forth between the viewpoints of too many of the characters Confusing and annoying.

    17. A bad book in a very good series Disjointed plot lines made very slow going in the first half Not very interesting.

    18. The third in the Morris and Chastain Investigaton series of paranormal thrillers this is an interesting melange of sex, politics and the supernatural.

    19. not bad, i liked that he made quincey a bit fallible in this one the culmination was a bit eh but all in all a decent story, there were some VERY exciting moments

    20. Real fast read, with great characters, including one who is Hellspawn, but not entirely lost I thoroughly enjoyed it.
