Summary

Seven Grigori enforcers have been murdered, lured to their death by a demon, and bearing the faint energy signature of a Fallen archangel no one has seen in over two million years. As the Iblis, it's Sam's responsibility to find the Ancient responsible and bring him to justice, but how can she manage that when she can't even keep her adopted infant angel from repeatedly killing his corporeal form?  

She's determined to prove herself worthy of the Iblis title, but when the killer claims to be Samael, and an army of demons along with the most powerful Ancients in Hel flock to his side, what's an imp to do?  

The fate of the human world and the entire angelic host rests in her hands. Can Sam get control of Hel, and more importantly, can she face down the Fallen archangel whose shoes she's struggling to fill?

Love this series

This is a great series, think it’s right for this to be the final book though. There were times at the start where my concentration drifted so I thought I might have to take a star off, but the action soon picked up and I love the humour so it all worked out great by the end.

End of an Era I will miss following Sam' story

This book is the end of Sam's story arc so when Angela said the final words I must admit I was a bit sad - I have loved this series listening to Sam grow from just an imp into a powerful Angel of Chaos and the Iblis herself.

I wasn't keen on Angela Rysk's narration initially but many books ago in the series my views changed and now its impossible to imagine anyone else reading these books and she does a great job with this one.

I was slightly disappointed with this book - there are better ones in the series and you always want the last to be the best. This one was good but not great - hence the 4 stars instead of 5. But if you have been following Sam's journey you have to listen to this one.

My complaint is there were several missed story strands that could have been better developed and it didn't really finish with the bang I was hoping for - hard to give details without spoilers so you will just have to listen to see if you agree. That said its all fine and and an entertaining listen.

Its not all bad news, in an authors note at the end Debra does promise some more spin off books set in this world so that's something to look forwards to.

This series has been one of the better one of its type mixing humour, page turning story-lines and about the right amount of sex along with really likeable characters. I've loved it and am sure I will come back and listen again at some point in the future and there aren't many series I can say that about

I'm left wanting More

The Morning Star is the last book in the Imp Series.
It's action packed from beginning to end. I laughed out loud and cried a little while listening to this book.
Angela Rysk is Sam. Her voice is perfect.

4.5 Stars

The Morning Star is full book 10 of the Imp series. I waited a really long time to read this book because I wasn't ready to see this series end. I have grown to love Sam and Gregory and all of the characters we have met along the way. When I finally decided it was time and that I couldn't wait any longer to find out how the series ends, I clicked into the series on GR and noticed that there is now a 10.5 that is out and a book 11 to be released soon. So now, I don't really know what is happening with the series next.

I really enjoyed this book. Sam came into her own as the Iblis and ruler of Hel. I enjoyed seeing how everything was wrapped up with the ongoing battles and fight for earth. It was great seeing Sam and Gregory as parents and their angel baby, Lux, was great. I think he is going to be quite formidable as an adult angel.

It would have been nice to have more of a wrap up for the side characters but perhaps that is why there is a book 11 now. I guess time will tell.

As far as the narration goes, the same narrator has read the entire series. I'm not overly fond of her voices but I find that I usually get used to her and am able to enjoy the story.

Imp in trouble, again.

I love the new baby, Lux. I only wished we would have had him in more of the series. I’m sad to see Sam’s story end but glad it isn’t drawn out so much where you start to hate the series. It was perfect, and I will be reading it again sometime in the future. I guess now I’m off to Rafie’s story. I did figure out who Samueal was in the last book, so no surprises there. I have learned to love the narrator after time, and she is Sam in my eyes, I was glad to see she did the entire series.

Wow.

The Imp series is going down in history as one of my all-time favorites. Moreover, Dunbar knows when to give the series a satisfying ending while the books are still good.
Endlessly funny, irreverent, occasionally heartfelt, but always awesome, Dunbar’s Imp series will leave you laughing out loud and cheering on an unlikely but lovable heroine. Three cheers for Sam.

No spoilers

This series was so good. Lots of laughs too. I just don't understand how MS Dunbar can end this series i feel she could easily get a few more books. I've tried the templar series haven't finished yet I keep wanting to read/ listen to more of sam and all the characters. As far as the narrator MS Rysk she was A number one great story teller and gave each character a unique voice she really brought the books to life. highly recommend audio in this series.
