K.A. Merikan’s “Where the Devil Says Goodnight” another Logical Review👹

Where the Devil Says Goodnight

by K.A. Merikan 

Wyatt Baker (Narrator) 

Forgive me, Father, for I will sin —

Adam. Catholic priest. Celibate. Does not yield to temptation.
Emil. Sinner. Seducer. Snake. Hot as hell itself.

After a sheltered childhood ruled by religion, all Adam wants is to be a good priest and make his parents proud. But it’s hard to stay virtuous in a big city like Warsaw, and when he makes one slip up, his life spirals into ruin. He is sent to a tiny mountain village where he hopes to live down his shame and work on restraint.

But staying celibate becomes far from easy when he meets Emil, a local man with long dark hair, a mysterious past, and as little morality as he has luck. Emil has no qualms about flirting with a priest. Worse still, he seems hell-bent on tasting forbidden fruit and unearthing the desires Adam has always kept hidden.

The odd village hides secrets far more sinister than Adam’s insatiable lust for Emil. Old Slavic magic looms everywhere. Superstition mixes with reality. Someone is watching his every move. Someone follows him in the dark, lurking in the shadows of the ancient forest. Adam is plagued by disturbing events, and Emil could be his only salvation even if he is the devil himself.

Can a priest shepherd the black sheep to safety or has he been the wolf all along?

MMy Thoughts, Confessions, and Review:

When this story began I thought I was in for a psychological thriller with a hint of PNR based on Slavic Folklore; sort of like a Grimm’s Tale. Ehhh…I should have known better with K.A. Merikan steering this Vardo Vessel.

Even though the story is an Urban Fantasy your mind keeps drifting to villages from centuries ago where superstition and religion lie side by side like two babbling brooks that will flow, join, then separate again before either one side dies off or merges with the other making it into a large creek or rushing river.

In the story, a young priest has left his home and family in Warsaw to do penance for a sin he committed. Now stuck in a village filled with people who make even the most devout question not only their faith but sanity too. Is Adam being tested like Job from the bible, gas-lighted by the villagers, or is he dealing with the actual devil himself? After all, the man, Emil, he has been struggling to deny himself is sexy as sin, despises the church, and is always seen with a court of crows surrounding him.

Oh, sweet Goddess of Night! I loved this book! If you love fantastical tales that wind around your psyche like vines an old oak tree, you MUST read this. I wish the narrator had been able to do heavier accents for the characters, but that did not stop me from seeing the story play out on the big screen, of my mind. I also loved the “special” effect the narrator used (I consider it a spoiler, so won’t say what) and thought it gave weight to that part of the story.

So devilishly delicious! Loved it!👹
