Megan Derr has always been my guilty pleasure read. Not so much "guilty" but still. It's not that I don't recognise the flaws, it's that they really really don't hinder the stories for me. The stories read like fairy tales and even the questionable behaviour (especially in this series - issues like (not bothering with) consent and stalkerish behaviour in the first books) while not seeming as cute on a reread... well, they didn't throw me off the stories. I see the new stories rewriting worldbuilding from the previous ones, I raise my eyebrows and move on. I realise they might be a little bit not good on a number of levels, but I still enjoy them, all right? They're tasty.
Like junk food, probably.
So that said, Dance with the Devil is one of my favourite Megan Derr series. I enjoy catching up with - and going back to - Chris and Sable, Grim and Johnnie, Jesse and Rostya & co. I'm hoping Caedda (and that Alucard, what was his name)'s story will be told eventually. I'm looking forward to the other Cross brothers' stories. Basically, I'm pretty fond of this world. :D
This story was a nice addition. I enjoyed Kipling's journey and I happily revisited the whole series.
