New Release + Review: The Real Devil by Stacie Santoro

Title: The Real Devil: Journal One
Author: Stacie Santoro
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Release Date: August 15, 2019



Vahla is a businesswoman.
A peacekeeper.
A fallen angel.
The CEO of Hell.
And she takes her role as an older sister very seriously.
With a younger brother who causes chaos as much as hers, it’s a full-time job. So, when chaos turns into serious trouble, the fight to save him becomes a little more . . . complicated.
This time, little brother Lucifer, the one and only, has decided to take up with Mother Nature—a woman who happens to be [fill in the blank with any expletive] crazy—and it’s causing worldwide weather imbalances.
When the higher-ups notice, Vahla is tasked with breaking up the happy (spelled R-E-C-K-L-E-S-S) couple before her brother finds himself in a situation not even she can get him out of.
Only, nothing is as simple as it should be when supernaturals are involved . . .
Even when you are the real devil.

Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Oh my soul, I am so in love with Vahla and her world! I want to shout from the rooftops to read this incredible, unique, original read. Stacie Santoro just knocked me into a huge book hangover. I need more Vahla. More Gabriel. More Lucifer. More Abhitha. Basically just more. I need more.

Forget what you have heard, taught, read, seen. Hell is not the place you thought. Lucifer is not the power you think he is. There is a ruler of Hell, but it’s not him. Vahla is fecking kickass. She is the reason the phrase “horns are just there holding up my halo”. Not only can she be ruthless when needed, she can be kind and considerate when need be. She is perfectly two halves of the same coin. Perfect balance of good and evil. You are going to meet so many amazing characters. I loved each one. Gabriel with his undying faith. Abhitha with her undying loyalty. Lucifer with his childish tantrums. Valencia with her innocence. I honestly loved them all.

I don’t know what I was expecting with The Real Devil, I just knew it blew every expectation out of the water.



Stacie Santoro lives with her family in New York, in the town where she was born and raised. She is the mom to three amazing boys and wife to a great man (who swept her off her feet with his basketball skills). When she’s not running with her family, you can find her enjoying a glass of wine or cup of tea, reading a book or daydreaming about a million things; like stories to write, putting her toes in the sand or owning every lip gloss created. Or maybe having one created just for her.

She’s also smiling big from the release of her debut novel, The Real Devil; Journal One.
