Given a second chance, music journalist Dawn Emerson and guitarist Sage Knightly are reunited, only to have their lives threatened again by a demonic bargain. The sequel to THE DEVIL’S METAL, from USA Today bestselling author Karina Halle.
When Dawn Emerson got the chance to go on tour with her favorite metal band, Hybrid, she thought she landed the writing gig of the century. But what started off as a dream for the budding music journalist quickly turned into a nightmare that she and guitarist Sage Knightly barely escaped alive.
Now, months after they went their separate ways, Sage invites Dawn to accompany him on his first solo tour across Europe and write about it for Creem Magazine. But like the last tour, nothing is as easy as it seems. Sage is a broken man on the path to self-destruction and Dawn isn’t sure if she’s the right person to save him. And aside from having to pick up the pieces of their burgeoning relationship, they have to negotiate the mysterious new photographer assigned to Dawn’s story, as well as vindictive promoters and demonic groupies they thought they’d never see again.
Because this time, it’s Dawn who made a deal with the devil and the only thing worse than having to uphold a bargain with the prince of darkness is not remembering how you’re supposed to pay it back.
It may be with their souls.
THE DEVIL’S REPRISE is the sequel to THE DEVIL’S METAL and the final book in this series.

FINAL RATING: ★★★★☆/★★★★★
Interesting conclusion to Devils duology - it did not disappoint me. The only thing that did was that i don't love it as much as i love the first book,hence 4.5 stars. But, don't worry, this book all in all is great as well.
Karina Halle is a master of horror. Whenever i read her books i am always spooked out and its interesting how i can always imagine every single scene. I love how this woman writes and i have read many of her books and i just damn love her.
To you who didn't know, this series IS CLOSELY CONNECTED TO EXPERIMENT IN TERROR series. Some of the characters from there you may even recognize... and i won't spoil but a certain someone is back and its hard to like/hate him....
And that plot twist near the end killed me -_-...my poor feelings,how could you -_-........
Dawn and Sage went their separate ways after the tragedy hit the band Hybrid. Sage ended up a broken man who basically destroyed everything he could have (without intention and with intention to do so). He also ended up forming his own band, which will never be Hybrid.
Dawn is struggling to understand how her family changed - and we are not talking about small changes. Until the freaky things start...
They are reunited when Sage called her to accompany him and be his reporter for his Europe tour.... Except they find out that in the end... Dawn made a deal with the Devil too.
"If anything, watching you play live, being with you in all these foreign places, no matter what is going on at the time, keeps me sane. It keeps me going. And it tells those fuckers that we aren’t giving up. They can throw whatever they want at me, but I’m not breaking.”
Dawn is interesting,loveable type of character and i can't help but love her. She sometimes cares too much for her own good and sometimes i wanna slap her (but not really)... Anyway, she stayed strong and great.
Irritated the hell out of me for the first half of the book. And i mean litterally, most of the times i wanted to jump in the book and shake him and strangle him (and i am becoming too violent over fictional characters). What he needed in his life was Dawn, and he couldn't function properly without her... But in the end he redeemed himself!
♦ Other characters:
Uh...new characters were interesting, but some of them were pissing me off (like Tricky?)... But then again, we have an addition of photographer Max who hides secrets... and Jacob, whom i loved from the start... And so on and on, i am tired to explain, so just read.
ALL IN ALL - THIS SERIES IS AWESOME... The first book was mindblowing but the second book wasn't as good as the first one - don't worry i am talking about little bit part. I still loved it and enjoyed it. I was endlessly frustrated,irritated,i was smiling,clapping my hands like a crazy fangirl,got creeped out and spooked but it was all worth it! And i will always remember Dawn and Sage and their deals with devils!
