"a story of love, magic and betrayal"
The Devil You Know is an interesting story about love,
magic and betrayal. Bastian is a man on a mission, only
that mission is not one he would have liked to have taken.
He is trained to be a sexual weapon and is able to use
magic to capture his prey. Vashi is a bodyguard of the
Overlord's son as well as friend and lover. Bastian must do
the devil's work and free his people or die trying. Vashi
finds his heart torn by his loyalty to his friend and
Overlord, and to a man he has fallen for and hopes to stay
This story was very detailed on how magic is used in the
world that Angelia Fiddler has created, and how this magic
is used to please those that can pay for it. Ms. Fiddler
draws you into the lives of Bastian and Vashi and shows you
how Bastian uses his trade to get what he wants and tries
to return to the life he used to have as well as find love.
A great read.

Years of training have turned Bastian into a sublimely sexual weapon, capable of pulling magic to enthrall. His mission is to captivate the overlord, then kill him, when years of violent revolts had failed. Vashi wasn't meant for Bastian's snares, but passion catches him up in them.
Sex to Bastian is means to an end and a method of control. But Vashi shows him pleasure in sex, and that the magic Bastian can use is stronger when the two of them are as one.
Unfortunately, Bastian's mission is a cruel and harsh one. One that demands complete and total submission, and Bastian has been purchased, body and soul. If he fails, Bastian's people are at risk of losing their lives as much as their freedom. If he succeeds, he may lose Vashi. As ever, the devil is in the details.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
