Synopsis:

Maggie Frew is a demon. Like all demons, she works in US politics – keeping her darkness under control by feeding it a steady diet of malevolence and sin. The problem: Maggie’s candidate in Virginia, older than dirt Peter Cameron, doesn’t have an evil bone in his body. And without a steady source of food, Maggie’s demon could wind up controlling her. The plot thickens: A crime spree heats up in the sleepy town of Leesburg, Virginia, thanks to a rogue demon intent on creating mayhem. And now the creature has set its sights on Maggie. Somehow, Maggie will have to find a new source of food, stop a rogue demon from exposing its existence to the world, and manage a campaign team made up of two seventy year-old Lesbians and Harry the Terrified Intern. It’s high octane politics, comedy, romance, and campaign sabotage in Souls to the Polls.

My Review:

When I began to read Souls to the Polls, I had mixed feelings about it. Mainly because with how people have been reacting during the last few elections, I didn’t know whether I wanted to read a book about demons in politics, be it fiction or not. I tend to be wary of things like that. But in the end, I decided to accept this book and see what I thought.

It did take a little bit for me to get into the story. In fact, I’ve set it down several times until I decided it was finally time to push through. I never did like starting a book and not finish. After reading the first few chapters again, I was pleased to find that Souls to the Polls was actually a fun, easy read. It may be about politics, but it’s so much more than that–you’ll even forget about that aspect.

The characters we meet were very well-rounded and enjoyable to get to know. They really managed to bring the story to light. For me, if not for the quirky characters, both major and minor, I would have decided to give up for good. They really bring the plot alive and you’ll find yourself laughing at the craziest things–in a good, wholehearted way.

Like most any book, there were some things I enjoyed, and there were some things I could have done without. However, either way, Patricia Murphy deserves recognition for her brilliant way of writing Souls to the Polls.

Overall Rate: 4 out of 5 stars

About the Author

Patricia Murphy is a full-time writer in Washington, DC. She has a lot of years of experience working on campaign politics all throughout the US though, by her own admission, she was a pretty lousy campaign manager. This is due entirely to the fact that she spent most of her time writing about the off-the-wall anecdotes and colorful characters she met along the way instead of actually running the campaign.

Patricia is happily married with two overweight cats and her first child on the way. In her spare time, she enjoys yelling at the television during presidential debates and eating cold pizza for breakfast.
