Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Matt Wallace tells a raucous, riotous tale of culinary madness - a jaw-dropping horror-fantasy restaurateur Thunderdome that makes the 'monkey brain' scene in Temple of Doom look like something you'd see on Nickelodeon." (Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Zer0es)
"No one makes me think, 'Dammit, I should have thought of that!' like Matt Wallace. The Sin du Jour series is something I read with equal amounts of envy and delight." (Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award-winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City)

Culinary Urban Fantasy- YES

I'm still laughing about parts of this fantastic tale. It's smart & witty - which is something that you come to expect from Wallace's writing. A very refreshing, unique spin on urban fantasy that's entertaining and makes for an extremely fun listen.

Two thumbs up for the selection of Corey Gagne as the narrator.

Fun, awesome read!

This book was full of spice, fun, sass and great plot twists and characters. If you liked Ghostbusters, the X-Files, or Kitchen Confidential, get on this!

I'm so happy I found this

This was a fantastic listen. Been a while since I've been this excited about a book. Will read/listen to anything this guy puts out. Starting on the next right after this review is done. Oh also the best narrator I've listened to. Up there with R.C. Bray. Do not pass this book up.

Fun

A little on the ridiculous side towards the end. There was not much character development and there were a lot of characters.

Hilarious and unexpectedly relevant!

This series was recommended to me by a friend, and I love it. I listened to it during my long commutes, and I found myself laughing hysterically and continually being surprised by the direction of the books. The whole collection is really quite charming, and even though the books are about otherworldly creatures, they feel very human. I like these characters and if they were real people, I have a feeling we would be best friends. Love the story, love the narration, definitely a hidden gem :)

Human women generally have human voices.

The story's a treat, but unfortunately the dude narrator's female character voices tend to land in the vicinity of Minnie Mouse. So two out of three lady protagonists come across as caricatures when they're clearly not written that way at all. I'm hoping that between this recording and subsequent ones, the narrator at some point heard a live woman speak. Because if he had encountered a non-cartoon woman's voice prior to narrating Envy of Angels, it's, uh, not reflected.
