In New York, eating out can be hell.
Everyone loves a well-catered event, and the supernatural community is no different, but where do demons go to satisfy their culinary cravings?
Welcome to Sin du Jour – where devils on horseback are the clients, not the dish.
What if you unwittingly became a caterer for demonic dinner parties, supernatural soirees, or ghostly galas? This book basically answers those questions and it’s as horrifying as it could possibly be. And also bizarrely hilarious.
Lena and Darren are looking for a new job following a falling out at the restaurant the previously worked at. Rent’s expensive in NYC, so when they receive a call from a celebrity chef they thought was dead they absolutely take him up on his offer. He runs Sin du Jour, a catering business with a specialized clientele and a hardened team of chefs, serving staff, and an acquisitions team that’s seen more action than military veterans. They quickly realize this job is like none other, from the clientele to the ingredients they use to make the food. It’s exotic for sure.
The first gig is catering for a treaty agreement between two demon clans and angel is to be served as the main course. The catering staff isn’t okay with this and they set out to find the perfect mimic – any less than perfect will see their insides devoured. Turns out, the mimic is a particular restaurant’s chicken nuggets and the recipe must be acquired by any means necessary… To say more than this would be spoil the fun, so it’s up to you to check it out.
All in all, this was a very fun, quick read and I definitely want to check out the companion novellas as well. I didn’t feel strongly about any of the characters, but the story was engaging and unique, which is enough to make up for that.
