Satan's Son Reviews

  • Nancy Walker

    Satan’s Son is a refreshingly unique love story. Addy is a high-spirited young adult who ends up literally falling into the life of Ethan, a child of Satan who has to atone for his own sins. The story focuses on the relationship between the two as they try to learn to work with each other.

    Both characters are entertaining and well written. Addy is not the typical “damsel in distress” and has a very distinct personality, which was refreshing even if it was over the top and juvenile in a few place

    Satan’s Son is a refreshingly unique love story. Addy is a high-spirited young adult who ends up literally falling into the life of Ethan, a child of Satan who has to atone for his own sins. The story focuses on the relationship between the two as they try to learn to work with each other.

    Both characters are entertaining and well written. Addy is not the typical “damsel in distress” and has a very distinct personality, which was refreshing even if it was over the top and juvenile in a few places. Ethan pulls off the Alpha male role without being overly domineering or abusive.

    The story is fast paced but not a bodice ripper. If you are looking for detailed sex scenes then you want a different book. This is about two people who are stuck together and learn they love each other after quite a bit of trial. It does not end with a cliffhanger but it does make me curious if there will be other books set in this world. There are a few side characters that could be developed into having their own stories.

    One issue with the story was the introduction of Archibald. He shows up in the middle of the book and out of nowhere but there is no explanation of who he is. Given his role in the story, he should have had his own personality instead of simply being a male version of Addy.

    There are also a few plot points that were glossed over. I have mixed feelings about this issue. The story is character driven so the details of why different things were happening wasn’t as important as the characters reactions. It’s also not an in-depth novel so skipping some details, like who Archibald is, missing is probably to be expected.

    Overall, I enjoyed this book and look forward to more work from this author. The story was refreshing and written as a proper romance. I was provided an ARC copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    I was curious about this book after reading the synopsis. It was different than other books I read so, I started without any expectations.

    Addison (Addy) is beyond hilarious. She's the kid that never grew up and I love her character.

    Ethan, the son of the devil and his friend Archie (who's position was never mentioned) are excellent supporting characters.

    This story mostly centered around Addy. She annoyed everyone, asked inappropriate questions and caused accidents everywhere she went. Ethan started calling her Accident Addy because she could barely walk anywhere with falling.

    I gave this book five starts because the story was different.

    Addison (imo) was a great character and yes, I'll admit is a bit like me when I'm with my husband.

    Ethan sometimes is like me as well (when my husband is acting like Addison)

    Archie is another character I thought was a great addition.

    I was reading this in the middle of the night laughing like a crazy woman. My husband just shook his head and went back to sleep. I read it a second time in the dentist office with my daughter and I couldn't stop laughing.

    Now, for the dislikes.

    The story is too short. I wanted it to last longer. What happened with Archie after Ethan and Addy were in hell? What did Ethan's family think about Addison earning her way back to hell to be with Ethan? What was her role in Hell? Marriage? Kids? Guiding?

    I still want to know more about them. I hope this will be a series . Maybe we'll get Archie's story next.

    Hell was the last place Addison thought she would EVER be!

    You never expect to meet your soulmate after you die. And you definitely never expect your soulmate not to have a soul at all. But that’s what happened to Addison. One minute she’s walking along in her average life, worrying about curfew, and the next minute she’s in hell. Addison was living a typical teenager’s life before being dragged down to hell to atone for her sins on Earth. She must now make up for her bad behavior but is not expecting to meet her match in Ethan. Devilish good looks, charming smirk, an attitude to match, oh, and he’s Satan’s Son. Addison must now navigate the channels of hell with the reluctant guidance of Ethan as he atones for his own error. But could his mistake be closer linked to Addison’s death than she knows? Neither Addison or Ethan were planning to find love but now that they’re here, which will it be: Heaven or Hell?

    What did I like? I think the thing I liked most about this book was the writing style. Concise, descriptive, detailed and Interesting! The author definitely has a connection with this genre and she makes the most of it. Every book that I have read so far has really been good and I have enjoyed all of them.

    What will you like? Humor, action, emotions, and a great cast of characters. As with all her other books she reaches out and brings whatever world that she sees in for us. Makes us believe that we are right there with her and her characters. Lots of details without overwhelming the reader and always some humor. I believe this author has a great future in front of her! I received this from the Publisher for an honest review.

    Can love be found in Hell? Ethan is the son of Satan, but he made a huge mistake and is now paying the price. What price, you ask? Ethan must mentor one high school student who must have majored in attitude, off key snark and finding her victim’s weakest spot and chipping away at it until all that is left is a tense and befuddled mess.

    Addison had no idea she had died, or that she would have gone to Hell, hey she was a rebel, yes, but, was she really that bad? Addie is no shrinking Violet and Ethan is not a paragon of patience. Together, they explore the depths of redemption as Ethan shows Addie the ropes that could get her reinstated into the good graces of eternity. But is that what is really going on? How can two people who cannot stand being together discover the chilling fact that they may just be made for each other! Talk about a new layer of Hell!

    by Simone Elise is a quirky trip to Hell and back as one girl learns the errors of her ways and the effects it has on those she loves, all while finding her true love in the most unexpected places.

    Filled with attitude and humor, there are touching moments that flash by, but not without leaving a streak of cute with it! How often have you heard the phrase, “I am dying to find my soulmate?” Simone Elise takes that message to heart and makes death far less forbidding and a whole lot more fun!

    Definitely not for the serious of heart! Sit back and enjoy this quick read for what it is, pure entertainment!

    I think that books about Hell/Heaven?Purgatory is a dime a dozen. But I was intrigued by the cover, the title, and the blurb. The first couple of chapters were really good. Like insanely good and I thought to myself “This book is going to be awesome”. Then the book fell flat and it became a chore to even finish it. Saying that I was disappointed is an understatement.

    I think that books about Hell/Heaven?Purgatory is a dime a dozen. But I was intrigued by the cover, the title, and the blurb. The first couple of chapters were really good. Like insanely good and I thought to myself “This book is going to be awesome”. Then the book fell flat and it became a chore to even finish it. Saying that I was disappointed is an understatement.

    I mean, I loved the idea behind the book. Where Addison went after she died wasn’t Purgatory but it was kind of like a pre-Hell where people who straddled the line between good and evil were sent to atone for their crimes and then possibly gain access into Heaven or Hell. I do think that if more time was spent in developing that part of the book, then the book would have gotten a higher rating from me.

    I couldn’t stand Addison. Listen, I get that there is a market for young adult women who don’t take anything from anyone and I like that. But there is a fine line between headstrong/sassy and being reckless/a witch with a b. Unfortunately, Addison crossed the line early in the book. She just came across as an immature spoiled brat who didn’t care who she ticked off and was used to people catering to her. I mean, even her explanation of her crimes when she was alive (arson, defacing public property) were horrible. Nothing was her fault and that attitude, unfortunately, stayed the entire book.

    Ethan, however, seemed to be an OK guy. Well OK for being the son of Satan. He has a think for Addison, which I really couldn’t even begin to understand why he liked her. I understood where he felt responsible for her and I understood the reasons why Satan put him in charge of training Addison. But everything else, nope, couldn’t even come close to even understanding it. I wish more was put into his relationship with is parents and sister. Again, which blew my mind because who would think that Satan would be a family man. Not this chick.

    The romance between Ethan and Addison seemed forced. Addison didn’t even like him for half the book and then, bam, Instalove on her part. I kinda went “Eh” when I read that part. As much as I thought Ethan was an OK guy, he did come across as stalkerish. Actually, the song Every Breath You Take by The Police is a perfect song for him when he was watching her when she was alive.

    Even when they had sex, it seemed off. I am thankful that the author chose to not detail that because it really wasn’t something that I want to think about.

    I do wish that the author went through with Satan’s plan to restore Addison to being alive sooner in the book. I think that it would have been a great twist in the plot to have her alive and gradually remember her time in Hell (well, pre-Hell) and then realize her feelings for Ethan than to drag it out for chapters.

    There were a couple of loose ends that never got picked back up. Did Addison meet back up with Alex? And more importantly…..why was Satan never given a scene? He was mentioned a ton of times and Ethan actually met with him when he brought Addison to his house for dinner. But no Satan. I was a little disappointed.

    The end of the book was technically an HEA with everything turning out alright.

    How many stars will I give Satan’s Son: 3

    Why: Now, I know most of you are like why a 3 if you didn’t like the main characters. Here’s my explanation: I think that this book could be something if the author took the time to do more world building, character building, fix up some of the dialogue and do an overhaul of Addison’s character. I see the potential in this book and what I see, I like.

    Will I reread: Maybe

    Will I recommend to family and friends: Maybe

    Age range: Older Teen

    Why: Language and some mild violence

  • Monica Bready

    Cute but more like something I would have read when I was a middle schooler. The plot was good, but just when I expected the book to go on...it had a rushed ending. The main character NEVER takes anything seriously, even saving lives...she’s a total brat, but still cute, and I liked Archie.

    Addison Myers is a teenage girl who wrongfully ended up dead. She ends up dead and in hell, literally. It isn't long before we find out that it is for offences such as swearing, lying, not respecting her elders. I have to pause here because I feel that hell would be bursting at the seams because everyone on the planet would be walking the halls of hell, but I will try to keep my opinions to a minimum after this reflection.

    Addison was wrongfully placed in hell to begin with so perhaps the charges

    Addison Myers is a teenage girl who wrongfully ended up dead. She ends up dead and in hell, literally. It isn't long before we find out that it is for offences such as swearing, lying, not respecting her elders. I have to pause here because I feel that hell would be bursting at the seams because everyone on the planet would be walking the halls of hell, but I will try to keep my opinions to a minimum after this reflection.

    Addison was wrongfully placed in hell to begin with so perhaps the charges were trumped up and that was all they could find on her, after all it is isn't long into the story that we find out she was she was mistakenly sent there by Satan's son himself, Ethan Beast.

    It is at Ethan's hands that she is dealt her "punishment" and must spend her time repenting, per say. After a certain amount of time then she would have a chance to leave hell. Even though this is all an error, this is hell after all and there is no going soft of the people that live there.

    Addison was given the task to lead people away from death, okay interesting concept.....but.....a big but.

    After this point, everything in this story may have been okay if the characters were actually likable, but I had a hard time connecting with them. Every time I thought they were redeemable, they just didn't do it for me. Addison never did reach that level of remorse that she was supposed to feel to actually leave hell, she came across as a whiny teen, which she actually is. Then there is Ethan. He's hundreds or maybe thousands of years old, yet he is somehow completely enamored of Addison by some unknown force, and he was Satan's son don't forget. Their connection just didn't make sense to me. The concept was initially enticing, but overall the characters fell flat.

    It might be more YA audience, except for the moments of lust that arise between the two.

    This reviewer was sent an advanced reader copy (ARC) of "Satan's Son", in exchange for an honest review. Inside the front cover there was a disclaimer concerning errors that might be found in the book, stating they would be fixed before publication.

    This reviewer was sent an advanced reader copy (ARC) of "Satan's Son", in exchange for an honest review. Inside the front cover there was a disclaimer concerning errors that might be found in the book, stating they would be fixed before publication. What many may not understand, however, is that an ARC source file should be clean, neat, and error-free, according to Carla King (March 1, 2016). Obviously, this reader found many spelling, grammar and punctuation errors but is not dinging the writer on those issues, rather for the lack of transitions. Transitions are those sentences or words used to move the reader from one thought or scene, to another. Most of "Satan's Son" seemed to be written in a stream of conscious or thought style, of protagonist Addison, which can be an extremely powerful and useful tool in the writer's hand. Addison's teenaged scattered and ditzy line of thinking made a powerful impact at the beginning of the book when she awoke, unsure of where she was or what had happened. However, used continually in the book made it a long and confusing read, especially with the formatting issues where one paragraph ran into another, and the lack of transitions never alerting the reader that we are moving on.

    Dialogue was stilted and not believable for the most part, and often just repeated what Addison had been thinking. The entire tale was told mainly by Addison, but occasionally Ethan, Satan's son, gave his views. Again, this made for a tedious read because the reader is being told the tale, and not shown. This reader prefers not to give spoilers, so without mentioning incidents will simply state that instead of Addison continually thinking along the lines of "Huh? What?" she might be shown with a furrowed brow, scratching her head, shaking her head slowly, or chewing on her lip, etc. While writer Elise did not use the multiple point of view tactic previously used in her "Reaper's Claim" story, she still tends to tell a story instead of showing it.

    Had this reader realized the writer of "Satan's Son" was also the writer of "Reaper's Claim", she likely would have turned down the request for review as she truly does not wish to be so critical and seem so harsh towards a fellow writer. Especially since many of the items that turned her against "Reaper's Claim" and were pointed out in that review, remained present in the current work reviewed. Only the gratuitious cursing and use of multiple points of view changed, Elise still tells a story instead of shows it.

    Simone Elise had an interesting idea with some unusual twists in the world she was creating; unfortunately, this reader felt she failed to deliver. This story is about young adults and in some respect, might be considered a coming of age romance story that would likely be of interest to teens or very young adults. There is no explicit sex or gratuitious cursing in this tale; curse words were used for impact and were well placed, when used. And once again this reader finds herself in the position of seeming extremely harsh in her views, yet this critique is actually offered from one peer to another in the hopes of bouncing ideas from one to another and perhaps even picking up a new trick or two. This reader will therefore not "not" give a recommendation, but also cannot give one for "Satan's Son" in good consciousness, as it stands.

    And then it fell flat.

    I got annoyed by Addison so much in antes to quit reading the book. She gives 19 year olds a bad name. I mean, there should really be a point where a character develops. There was no growth in Addison at all. She was the same girls at the beginning and at the end. The only difference is that she's in love with Satan's son at the end. But we already knew she would be. I kinda would've been more excited and probably given this a 3 star if she hadn't. If it had gone the other way, as in if she hadn't had a chance to retaliate on the memory loss.

    Also, I didn't fall in love. I wasn't at the verge of tears at the idea that Addison and Ethan weren't going to be together. Mostly because there's no falling in love. It's all she annoys him, he annoys her, he's gone for 2 months and I love you. That's not how love works, people can annoy each other and not fall in love, there has to be a turning point. Falling in love changes people, but Addison doesn't change. She's still the exact same person she was at the beginning.

    Notice I keep bringing that up. Character developments are crucial in books and this one lacked it. In my opinion.

    I'm a firm believer that authors need to have honest reviews of their books so that they can improve. I encourage Simone Elise to keep on writing, she's already a best selling author, I just don't see it in this novel.

    This is a classic example of a book that made me say "dope" when I read the synopsis and then "nope" as soon as I started in on the book proper.

    Addison was annoying as hell as a character. I have no idea why Ethan was into her in the first place, since literally all she did was whine and complain. I think we were supposed to find her whining endearing, or at least a little humorous, but it missed the mark for me. In fact, I feel like half of the dialogue in this book (and there is a lot of dialo

    Addison was annoying as hell as a character. I have no idea why Ethan was into her in the first place, since literally all she did was whine and complain. I think we were supposed to find her whining endearing, or at least a little humorous, but it missed the mark for me. In fact, I feel like half of the dialogue in this book (and there is a lot of dialogue) could have been cut and it would have improved my view of Addison as a character.

    Ethan was okay, but the whole him being Satan's son thing was heavy-handed. It could have been much better, and there was potential for more depth of character. I didn't get much of a feel for him at all. He was hella old and he'd fallen in love with a teenager. More explanation is needed there on why and what in his character (and her character) is driving him. He also acted like a teenager, which was kinda boring.

    As for hell? It was flat as a setting. It was like the author wanted to write about Satan's son cause she thought it would be cool and sexy (which I don't disagree with) but didn't want to get too much into the nitty gritty of what setting a book in such a commanding setting required. The best books take place in a setting that almost becomes a character itself, and hell should have been easy to make into a setting like that. Imagine all the cool little things you could include!

    The plot and story conflicts had potential, they really did. And I think if the author reworked some of the mechanics in the story it could be good. Though I didn't love the writing, I reckon a thorough edit (not just for spelling and grammar, as seems to have been the case here) and a better balancing between dialogue and exposition could polish it up quite nicely.

    In short, I liked the idea of this book, but it was missing crucial elements. Many of them.
