The Devil You Know by J.M. Gregoire

Deziree Davanzatti is a thief by trade and to keep herself occupied between jobs, she owns and operates Onyx, a trendy nightclub for the supernatural citizens of New York City.

What else would a 400-something year old demon-human hybrid do with her spare time?

Following a drunken night of questionable decisions, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne leaves town with no explanation. Dez is left wondering if they made a mistake and if it cost her a price she wasn’t willing to pay – her best friend and confidant.

When he returns after two weeks of no contact, he comes bearing grave news that could potentially change the world forever….or end it all together. To make matters  worse, they suspect that someone they know may be behind it all.

An extremely dangerous chain of events has been set in motion and it is up to Dez and Vegas, with the help of his brother Lucas, to find a way to stop it.

From the author of Burning, the short story prequel, comes The Devil You Know, the first
full-length novel in the Demon Legacy series by J.M. Gregoire.

    In this book we meet Dez and Vegas. There has been a murder and Vegas needs to figure out who did it and how to stop the end of the human race. Yep not just catch a bad guy but save the world. To explain a little about that I should probably tell you that the bad guy is a demon, Vegas is a vampire, and Dez is a half demon. The bad guy, whose name I can't even pronounce, is looking for a stone to open the gates of hell. If this happens than all of the demons will enter the mortal plane and kill off all of the humans, vamps, witches, shifters, etc. See the problem with that happening? Now there is a plus, Dez. She is able to go to the murder scenes and "see" what happened and what the demon felt. Down side is that the more she does this the closer she gets in touch with her demon half. If they don't manage to stop the demon from opening the gate they could always close it. Granted it would take a willing sacrifice to enter hell and die for love, but it can be done. What do you think? Yeah, me too, hurry up and catch this demon douche before he takes over the world. Here is another thing to think about. It takes some strong blood magic to call a demon in the first place. Who was the dumbass that summoned him in the first place?
