All I can say is wow! Larissa Ione keeps me on my toes and drooling with each installment of the Demonica series. The idea that this one could be the last is simply heartbreaking. Blaspheme and Revenant have a carnal attraction that draws you in and holds you so close to the edge you want to tumble over. ~ Alyn Love, Guilty Pleasures
HELL HATH NO FURY . . .
For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.
LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED
Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she’s the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there’s no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won’t find her . .
Review copy provided for an honest review
She assumed he was a fallen angel, he assumed she was a false one. As we all know, looks can be deceiving to say the least. The one this that is not a deception, the attraction between the two of them.
Revenant has been through Hell, literally. He spent his entire youth there, loyally served Satan, was one of the watchers of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and until recently; believed he was fallen. Now his world is upside down, he learned he has a twin brother who not only grew up in Heaven, but is also a Radiant, Lucifer is about to be reborn, and Hell on Earth is a very real possibility. If that isn’t enough to deal with, he can’t seem to get Blaspheme out of his head or into his bed.
Blaspheme doesn’t get why Revenant keeps appearing every time she is working at Underworld General. He epitomizes the bad boy image to perfection and talk, dark, and dangerously sexy does not even begin to describe him. Even if she does admit to being attracted to him he is off limits. Her disguise is fading and if she doesn’t do something fast, she will be a walking target with a death warrant just for being born. Unfortunately her time is about to be up, and when her mother appears with a near fatal wound, hiding who she is will be all but impossible.
All I can say is wow! Larissa Ione keeps me on my toes and drooling with each installment of the Demonica series. The idea that this one could be the last is simply heartbreaking. Blaspheme and Revenant have a carnal attraction that draws you in and holds you so close to the edge you want to tumble over. Revenant is the bad boy that was dealt a bad hand. In the previous story “Reaver” he learned that his memory had been erased not once, but twice as a result of his newly known brother Reaver. What he does remember, is the torture he and his mother both endured while Reaver enjoyed a pampered life in the clouds. His anger causes him to make some ill-advised choices and lash out in a way that leads him to seek medical attention by none other than Blaspheme. As their worlds collide and the two discover their hidden truths, they must battle those that seek to destroy them and the world as they know it. Can Revenant break his bad boy streak to redeem himself? Or will he take his place beside Satan and rule the underworld?
Larissa Ione has done it again! This is by far one of my favorite series and each book outdoes the previous. I am awestruck with Revenant (I admit I am a sucker for the bad boy underdogs) and was rooting for him through the entire story. Ione not only creates a steamy paranormal love story but she intertwines the various characters from previous books and series (Lords of Deliverance) seamlessly to perfection. This includes the back story of Revenant and Reaver which is both heartbreaking and inspiring to say the least.
If you are a fan of this series, the only disappointment you will have is the fact that this could be the end of the series (though there are hints that there may be a bit more). If you have not read this series and you are a fan of paranormal, this is an absolute must read. Just be sure to start at the beginning of the series because these are not stand alone novels. Either way, this book is not to be missed!
