Book review: Idle Hands by Cassondra Windwalker⁠


I went into this book without any idea of what it was about and I’m really glad that’s how I got to experience this story. I will usually include the synopsis of the book I’m reviewing in the post but I’ve left it out this time as, I feel, it unfortunately spoils the entire plot. I loved having the opportunity to go through this story with the characters, discovering where the story was going at the same time as they were.⁠

Without giving the whole thing away, this book is told through the eyes of The Devil. It asks the question if one decision we make changes the outcome of our life’s path or whether we’re doomed to follow the same story regardless.⁠

I thought this was a really unique story with an interesting take on the Devil and her motives and life observations. Her narration wasn’t always something you’d want to hear or acknowledge but it often felt very true.⁠

The writing style in this one was very straightforward and so made for an easy reading experience. That being said, this one does tackle topics like domestic abuse, so definitely some tricky scenes to read.

Overall I loved this and thought it was a really interesting take on the butterfly effect storyline. If you do fancy reading this, I would recommend not reading the synopsis!
