Lesser EvilsPaperback - 2012
“Well, I'm now behind on my own writing, because I couldn't tear myself away from Lesser Evils. Then again, I'm only behind by a single day--because I really couldn't tear myself away from Lesser Evils. If the next one's not out until tomorrow, it's still too far off. And if Evans is not already a name spoken of as part of the true Forgotten Realms pantheon, along with Kemp, Cunningham, and Salvatore, it can only be because she has fewer books out, and thus hasn't reached everyone yet.”— Ari Marmell, author of Agents of Artifice, The Conqueror's Shadow, and the Widdershins Adventure series
“Lesser Evils is incredibly immersive and technically brilliant. I love the complex characters and layered plot, and the dialogue is sharp, natural, and brimming with personality. It’s one of those books where you forget about the fact that you're reading a book, and just experience the story as though you were there. Erin M. Evans has a rare talent. She's one to follow for sure.”—Susan J. Morris, author of “Writers Don’t Cry” column on Omnivoracious, an Amazon.com books blog
“Lesser Evils will leave you begging for more from Erin M. Evans. Intrigue upon intrigue and a host of unforgettable characters interwoven into a plot that is riddled with heart-stopping action.Who could ask for more!” —Chris A. Jackson, award-winning author of Scimitar Moon
Mere weeks after escaping Neverwinter, Farideh’s dreams are still haunted by Lorcan, the cambion devil whose power fuels her own. One of only four known descendents of the original Brimstone Angel, Farideh has no regrets about the pact she made with the devil. But no one in the Hells knows that she has a twin—an impulsive eager sister, just waiting to be corrupted. At least as long as Lorcan can keep her secret. Determined to protect her sister, Farideh searches for a ritual that could call Lorcan out of the Hells. But in the midst of her hunt, she’s drawn into an assignment for the secret society the Harpers, an assignment which leads her and a ragtag group of allies to an ancient Netherese library deep underground. While the group combs the site, dodging ghosts and magical traps, Farideh discovers a magical book whose pronouncements throw into question everything she thought she knew about herself and her sister. The more the Book gives up its macabre secrets, the more one thing becomes clear—a traitor lurks among them.
