Review for ‘The Devil Behind Us’ by S. C. Wilson, audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Saydah

The Devil Behind Us is the sequel to The Devil Between Us and definitely not a standalone. It picks up right where book 1 ended and is just as exciting as that first wlw historical fiction book was (without the harrowing but necessary scene at the beginning). I had really liked Jennifer Nicole Stang’s narration of The Devil Between Us so going forward with a new narrator – even Elizabeth Saydah, whose narration of Eliza Andrews’ Princess of Dorsa I adored – was surprising and I needed to adjust to that. I wasn’t one hundred percent convinced with the rhythm here but all in all, I enjoyed the narration anyway.

There’s so much happening in this book from the start, I won’t risk spoiling. All I’ll say is I love Jesse and Abby’s relationship, how much love and respect they have for each other. Sometimes I wish they were better at communicating and I really like how Abby calls Jesse out on that.

I also like the secondary characters a lot, especially Toby. Another one is special to me: Armand Baptiste, whom Jesse meets by chance. I’m partly responsible for the fact that his French rings true – or not, in which case I’m probably responsible too –, and finally getting to meet him was oddly moving (it was the first time I gave a hand to an author while the book was being written).

I hope I’ll find the time soon to read the third and final book in this trilogy, ‘The Devil That Broke Us’. I just have to know what will happen next. I’m really glad I read this book after the next one was released already (not the audiobook yet though), the cliffhanger would be hard to handle otherwise. 4 stars.

Length: 9 hrs and 57 mins
