Bah humbug just got a lot darker.

Alasdair Blakesley is the head of the Covens Syndicate. He shouldn’t need to look beyond the witches and warlocks he governs, or his own abilities, to solve any problem. But a demon infestation means he can’t trust anyone who may be possessed. The last person he wants to ask for help is also the only person who can fix this, so he sucks up his pride and storms into her office.

And she turns him down cold.

As the owner of Brimstone Inc., Delilah’s passion is helping others with their supernatural problems. But Alasdair is the last man Delilah wants to tangle with. The infuriating man sees too much and demands even more. And did she mention the way he sets her body on fire?

Not that it matters—demons are the only things with which she cannot interfere. Too bad a higher power steps in and sends them both on a crash course of each others’ pasts, presents, and futures.

How is a Christmas Carol nightmare supposed to solve his demon problem without breaking the rules she’s bound by?

Try As I Smite is the fourth book in the Brimstone Inc. series and tells the story of Delilah and Alasdair. Although this is the fourth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.
Try As I Smite is the book I’ve been waiting for. Ever since I read about Delilah and her services, I’ve been wanting to read her story. And I’m not disappointed at all! I really liked Delilah and Alasdair’s story. The story was really good, and I loved discovering more about Delilah.  

Delilah’s always been an interesting character to me. I’ve always wanted to know more about her and I loved reading about her parents and her abilities. As for Alasdair, I really liked him. At first he seemed like an asshole, but the more I read about him, the more I started to like him! I think Delilah and Alasdair are a great pair.

Try As I Smite was such an amazing and fast paced read! I loved reading about Delilah and Alasdair, and I wish I could read more about them (and all the other characters in the Brimstone Inc. series)! The entire Brimstone Inc. series is such a good series, and all the books are quick reads. I highly recommend this series if you’re looking for amazing and quick Fantasy books!
