Where the Devil Don’t Go

by Onley James

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Sam is known by many names: Samiel, Samyaza...Lucifer. But Sam isn’t the devil. He’s simply a demon, attempting to earn peace by slaughtering the demonic offspring he created. 

It’s in slaying one of those offspring that Sam finds Christopher, who’s been enslaved for so long he’s forgotten how to be human. He doesn’t look human, not anymore, not after the barbaric things he’s endured at the hands of his captor. But even then, Christopher never suspected his master was anything but a normal mortal man. 

When Sam’s mission puts him in Christopher’s path, Christopher isn’t horrified by the literal demon before him—not even when Sam tells him he has to die. Instead, intrigued by Sam, Christopher offers his body in exchange for his life. An offer Sam finds himself accepting. 

Their joining is an abomination. Humans and monsters aren’t meant to mate. But together, they work. Sam feeds on others’ pain, and Christopher needs to hurt to get off. They’re a perfect match made in hell…until Sam is left with only one name between him and the death he’s craved for millennia. Now, he has a decision to make. Stay and start a war… 

Or finish what he started and leave Christopher alone in a world that’s forgotten him.   

Where the Devil Don't Go is a compilation of chapters originally released in serial format and is complete at 70,000 words with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Where the Devil Don't Go is a scorching hot paranormal read featuring a lost and damaged boy looking to serve and a smoking hot demon more than willing to spend his last days giving them both what they want.

Carra's Review

You know, I’m actually glad I didn’t read this when it was serialized…I’d likely would have gone stir crazy waiting for each installment because as a finished book I couldn’t put it down.  This was a unique storyline, with characters whose lives I quickly became invested in.  It was easy to care about Christopher with his tragic life and circumstances.  He’s the classic underdog figure you can’t help but root for in hopes that he’ll find his happily ever after.

Then there’s Samyaza, or just Sam for short.  As the story begins he is the epitome of indifference to humans and their suffering, but there’s just something about Christopher…and whatever that something is, they actually become a great complementary match.

Both of them experience plenty of growth as characters, and this is especially true for Sam given how deeply ingrained his attitude and ideals have become over his very long time on Earth.  Sam is working towards his own final demise, literally dead set on seeing his mission through.  But Christopher throws a wrench into things, and interestingly enough vice versa.  It’s a case of both going from having nothing to lose to having everything to lose, so you can obviously expect a dose of angst as the story progresses.

Though there may have been a few points where I thought the story could have been tightened up a bit, overall I was pretty completely pulled in, especially as things came to the dramatic conclusion.  It was enthralling enough for me to give it 4.5 stars, and this story will definitely be one I re-read in the future.  Where the Devil Don’t Go is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and erotic sexual content.
