Devil She Became is Autumn Raynne’s debut, but aside from its need for a bit of editing, it certainly does not come across as a “first novel.” The pacing is excellent, and exposition is handled well for the most part. The strongest part of Autumn’s writing is her characterization. Everyone in this book is complex without being unbelievable, and Harrison, “Barbie” (I can’t think of her otherwise at this point!), and Ava all have personal developments that are significant to the events that occur.
The story is intricate, and does not end up going in any of the directions so many other “billionaire erotica” pieces go. And make no mistake: there is a lot of story here.
The characterization is well done and integral to the work; it’s a truly character driven book, and the interaction of the three main characters is both exciting and intriguing. The events of the plot evolve organically from their actions and choices.
I’m not going to spoil it in my review, but I do recommend it, especially if you enjoy thrillers (which I certainly do). Other reviewer’s comparisons to Silence of the Lambs is not far off, and Autumn has definitely got a winner in Ava. She is an appealing, sexy, evil mastermind who just may end up as iconic as Hannibal Lecter. I can’t wait to read the next one, and you won’t be able to either!
Get it here, and get it now, while it’s cheap!
