Description from Back Cover:

Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.

Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary- even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.

Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.

My Review:

This was the first book I have read in the Demonica series. I thought it would be a bit too involved for me considering I opened the first page to a three page Glossary of characters and definitions. Oh boy. But, no worries, I fell into pretty quickly. It was fast paced, edgy and sexy. Lore was a bad ass (pardon my French) and Idess was too, in her own way. I liked their somewhat dysfunctional, intense relationship.

The family dynamic with Lore and his sister and brothers was heated and engaging. With the crazy weekend I had I am about 100 pages shy of finishing it so I don't quite know how it ends. But up to where I left off, it was a pretty good read. The author has certainly created a fantasical world of demons and angels and other complicated beasts all plugging away with desires and rage.

For the very little Paranormal Romance I've read, this was entertaining enough to hold my interest. How it rates in the grand scheme of Paranormal, I can't say. I thought it was sexy and weird and exotic and easily readable. Good enough for me!

Thanks to Hachette for sending me a copy to review for this Blog Tour. (so sorry I am a day late!)

Happy Reading!
