Series Review of Sin du Jour by Matt Wallace

I have been trying to figure out a way to share all these books I read with you but still include other non-review posts on the blog.  One method I have come up with was to share the reviews for an entire series (or pair) of books in one post.  I will do my absolute best to keep spoilers out of these posts in case you plan to read the books, but there is a slight chance that even the synopsis of a book can give away the result of the previous book. So if you don't want to know anything at all about the later books in a series that might giveaway something in the first book STOP READING NOW!

So this is a different series, 5th book in the series kept catching my eye because my husband is big in to BBQ and it seemed like a book that I would find entertaining based on the cover, but it was later in the series so I wrote it off.  Then I saw Kitty G on Youtube review them and decided to give them a shot. I mean who doesn't love books revolving around food?! 

Again as with many series I have been reading lately, there are a lot of books (7 and a novella) so I figured I will just link to my review to each individual book and post a full series review here.

Series Synopsis“Matt Wallace’s Sin du Jour series is a comedic action-packed supernatural romp through the New York City restaurant scene, told in serialized standalone novellas. It’s a twisted world of magic, monsters, and gourmet food that makes for fast-paced, highly addictive reads.”

Synopsis for Envy of Angels: "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."

Full Series Review: This series was nothing that I expected, and it is not often that books can surprise me anymore but this series certainly did!  This is more of a Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal series, which I haven't read in some time due to all the tropes, but Matt Wallace created something completely new and unique with this series.  Ever page was a new twist or surprise coming at you.  It may not be a series for every one, especially since at times things get obscure and it is definitely geared towards adults. The characters all have very individual personalities and quirks, they are all flawed in some way, which makes them a lot more appealing.  If you are looking for something unusual that will give you something new and exciting, give this series a try.  The books are all fairly short, around 200-250 pages so are quick and entertaining reads.  I give this series a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. I haven’t heard of this series and it looks a little weird but the covers are a blast to look at.

    1. It is definitely an adult series, and is just so odd that it would be hard to recommend to others but it was a fun break from normal tropes.
