Mouse is both strong and vulnerable, constantly struggling with the dark legacy of her father, her own powers, and her efforts to be a good person. This exciting, poignant novel continues the strong opening in Bohemian Gospel and leaves room for more in Mouse’s fascinating world.
Carpenter’s follow-up to her debut novel, Bohemian Gospel, is as richly woven as her first. A terrific follow-up. —Booklist
Darkly entertaining. —Kirkus Reviews
A strong protagonist in a swift-moving novel that zips to Rome and Prague with several unexpected detours along the way.—Criminal Element
Carpenter’s follow-up to Bohemian Gospel is similarly crammed with theological mystery and suspense. The journey through lesser-known landscapes and areas of religious history is absorbing. —Historical Novels Review
Fans of historical fiction with a supernatural bent will thrill to the surprises Carpenter reveals within the ancient parchment pages of The Devil’s Bible. —Chapter 16
Part fantasy, part historical fiction, part mystery and part Dan Brown thriller. Absolutely unputdownable! I can hardly wait for the next installment in Mouse’s life.—Eleanor Kuhns, award-winning author of 'A Simple Murder'
Look out, Dan Brown. Dana Chamblee Carpenter is the angels'''''''''''''''' new champion in the timeless battle between darkness and light. The Devil''''''''''''''''s Bible is not just a book, but a shining, vibrant tale for the ages—told with history and heart—that will have readers both weeping and cheering not only for brave Mouse, but for all of humanity. —Laura Benedict, author of 'Bliss House' and 'The Abandoned Heart'
An arresting thriller with historical and literary prowess, defying expectations in every chapter. A remarkable tale of a heroine who transcends her name—Mouse is undeniably mighty. She refuses to accept her own boundaries, ignoring rules of both society and science. Superb.—Erica Wright, author of 'The Red Chameleon'
The Da Vinci Code meets Twilight—only darker, edgier and more literary. There’s an underlying tension with every turn of the page. I really enjoyed it! —Oscar de Muriel, author of 'The Strings of Murder'

Mouse is changed in the second book, The Devil’s Bible. Her spirit seems very damaged, if not broken. She is not living as much as surviving. She forms no ties with anyone or anything. She lives a life of simplicity that she can flee at a moment's notice. She is more of a shadow of a person than a person. While I understand why she felt she had to live that way, I really did not like Mouse like that. It made me angry. Ever wish you could jump into a book and save your favorite character? That is how I felt, like I needed to reach it and tell Mouse I would help her. I was so glad when she decided to fight to regain herself, she was more like the Mouse from the first book.
There are so many plot points that I cannot discuss because they are spoilers, especially for someone who hasn’t read the first book. Mouse is a character steeped in mystery and mythology. She is not wholly human as though it is what she longs to be. The characters she interacts with are human and non-human. I love Mouse and really like both books.
Tantor Media had given me the first book and then offered me this one in exchange for an honest review. I was happy to accept. Justine Eyre is wonderful. Her voice has a musical quality to it. I found I could not listen to it in bed because I fell asleep. Otherwise I had to have a quieter atmosphere than usual. I think it was because of the complexity of the plot. Ms. Eyre does such a fine job of clearly enunciating every word. So it is totally my fault that I could not binge listen to it even though the story was enticing.
I would recommend both Bohemian Gospel and The Devil’s Bible narrated by Justine Eyre to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, mystery and paranormal fantasy.
This book could win an award for having the least believable character who has lived for many centuries. Mouse acts like an edgelord teenager after centuries of life. She has not dealt with her trauma and low self-esteem at all in the hundreds of years since the previous book. She has somehow avoided all human connection despite typically living in cities and being smart and pretty. She doesn't seem to have done much introspective work. She also doesn't seem very busy. There just isn't any adequate explanation for why she hasn't already stumbled into a human connection and dealt with her issues. If there was something actually keeping her busy or unconscious I might believe it, but there isn't. There's also this weird dynamic where she keeps relying on the wisdom of her past mentors when she is now centuries older and more experienced than them.
Besides that, I got frustrated with how much the plot revolved around characters refusing to communicate with each other. Between this book and the previous one there was some improvement on keeping the plot smooth, but the problem was that it lost a lot of its more interesting mysterious elements.
I will not be reading the next book in the series.
Allll I did Sunday was read. Couldn't stop.
(Be sure to read "Bohemian Gospel" first)
Wonderfully understated, the only way to handle the subject matter.
She ( Dana Chamblee Carpenter) dunnit!
This book is magical and so well written keeping you in constant suspense of learning what she is in this world and of life longing for our heroine, Mouse, to succeed.
