Book Description

Gabriel Caine stands on the edge of the abyss. A vampire has stolen his soul and if he doesn't get it back soon, his next step will be into Hell. Only the naïvely mysterious Rose can help him retrieve it. Without her, he really will become the devil himself.

Rose Walters has been sent back from the dead to complete one task-save Gabriel Caine. She's drawn to Gabriel on the most basic level, but restoring his soul may cost Rose her life.

Rose has touched the whole of Gabriel, making him yearn for a love he believes he can never have. Her willingness to put her human life on the line for him forces him to bring all three parts of himself—demon, human, and Feri bloodlines, and the strengths of each—into harmony and into the fight that decides their fate.


Editorial Reviews

Review

4 STARS! "It's a scary world of demons, vampire, werewolves and people brought back from the dead - and that's just for starters in the fast paced account of love and redemption.." --Donna M. Brown, Romantic Times Reviewer

New Review -  4 Stars by Kyuu Satsui of Night Owl Reviews.  "My thoughts: It was a great storyline. The plot is original and suspenseful, just like every good book should be. I was literally sitting on the edge of my chair, and could not walk away from the story after I got into it."

The Romance Reviews Top Pick - review by Vixhen "A powerful debut novel that will capture your heart and soul. I love a good love story where the characters are a bit damaged. I liked Ms. Ashworth's writing style -- fast and to the point with some humor thrown in. I will definitely buy her next book."

From the Author

Demon Soul is the beginning of the Caine Brothers series. I wanted to write about a different kind of hero, one who had a hard time with the blood that ran in his veins. My demon/human/Fae tribreds are amazing men - I hope you stick around and get to know all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Smart, Flawed Characters - Love It! February 23, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If it's paranormal than it's usually right up my alley. In the world of Demon Soul we get to explore all kinds of demons and supernatural beings, but thankfully they are not your stereotypical lot. Christine Ashworth gives them depth and interest that makes it hard for you to put the book down. At the very core our main heroes, the Cain family, are human, with human faults, needs and desires. Why do I say they are human? Because they are tribreds, a mix of human, demon and fae. Our leading lady, Rose, she's something else entirely. I love the way she takes on the fight and doesn't wait to be saved. I love girl power and Rose gives us that.

The conflicts feel real, and you care about these characters. You want to see it come to a positive resolve in the end. But when there are bull-headed males in the mix you never know which way the tide will blow.

This is an enjoyable read with smart, strong, sexy players possessing an undying determination to succeed. I look forward to the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, sexy, and a hell of a good time! February 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
This was one fun read -- I couldn't go to sleep until I finished it! The characters were compelling and I absolutely believed the body and soul link between Gabriel and Rose. Theirs was an intensely satisfying love in every aspect of the world. The world they lived in was richly drawn out and I wouldn't be surprised to find her graceful werewolves running Venice surreptitiously trying to keep humans unaware of the demons and vampires running amuck. Gabriel Caine's family are tribreds -- human, Feri, and demon -- and accustomed to taking care of themselves but Rose is something much, much more and only she can save Gabriel.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE NEXT AND BETTER "TWILIGHT" August 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is addictive!!!! I cannot put it down. The characters are intelligent, sexy and mysterious -- the plot interesting and intelligent; everything you want in a book. Christine Ashworth has put together a series that Twilight should have been. I am proud to say that I was ahead of the game in reading this series, before it gets snapped up by Hollywood. Twi-hards will be fighting for a place in the movie theatre in the next couple of years. Read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story! February 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Demon Soul has everything a good book should -- layered plot, gripping conflict, memorable characters -- but the thing that sets it apart is that none of the people in this book are human! Vampires, werewolves, fae, a soul chalice, and lots of nasty demons. Who knew they'd have the same problems as the rest of us? Christine Ashworth tells a wonderful story of family, love, life (or death, as the case may be) and the difficulties we all face. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Ado About Everything January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Before dawn, Rose Walters wanders into a Santa Monica strip mall, broke but for the clothes on her back and shoes that her feet are bleeding in after an eight mile walk. She repeats "Gabriel Caine" silently, right up until the moment she's approached by the man himself. She's dismayed to find a man whose twice her size and can read her thoughts as if she's speaking out loud. How she is supposed to rescue him? That is what she was sent back to Earth to do. Still, Gabriel accepts there's something special about her, right after he gets over her accidentally wicking away what remains of soul.

Not only did Christine Ashworth give me what I expected--beautiful yet flawed characters, emotional baggage, sexual tension, creature battles, and catharsis--but she included something very unexpected with Gabriel's laid-back brother, Justin, and his witchy associate, Magdalena. They are, as far as I'm concerned, Benedict and Beatrice from Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." They speak in snark and are obviously falling in love as fast as they can snap back at the other's insults. Meanwhile, everyone around them sees the romance that Justin and Magdalena would swear to their graves doesn't exist. And Ms. Ashworth uses torturous restraint, using them just enough to brighten and complement Gabriel and Rose's story without becoming a distraction.

Demon Soul is a remarkably complex story for its length. Rose's back story is woven into Gabriel's current problem, which is the key to an ambitious vampire taking over her master's Los Angeles crime empire, that the Caine boys aim to put a dent into. There's also a delightful little demon named Mephisto that reminds me of Marie Sexton's Cole Fenton that I hope makes an appearance in a future Caine Brother's novel.

It's also a fun read, despite some dark subject matter. I would recommend Demon Soul and the Caine Brothers series to fans of Hildie McQueen, the TV show Angel, and Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love and Redemption September 9, 2012
By Nereid
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Redemption is a powerful thing but it comes at a price. Rose wakes up after being in a coma with one thing on her mind - Gabriel Caine. Almost dying can give you a new perspective on life and Rose made a deal that she gets a new life if she saves Gabriel. Now all she has to do is find him and save him, no big deal right - wrong. Gabriel looks like a "dark angel, messed up, beautiful" (nice quote Christine)and more than capable of defending himself against any foe. He is a Tribred and part human,part demon and part fae though he considers himself mostly a demon. He is a broken man who cut him self off emotionally from his brothers and friends, his past haunts him and he trust no one. He is hunting Satine a vampire soul stealer who stole most of his soul and Rose believes this is her mission. Coming back from the dead so to speak is hard enough but now Rose finds out that she is also hosting a fire demon who lends her his powers and he is an old arch enemy of Gabriel's. Both Rose and Gabriel are emotionally damaged yet they have a connection to each other which stirs up feelings of attraction and maybe something more if they live long enough to explore it. Justin and Maggie are a hoot as they fight their growing feelings for each other and bicker like an old married couple. Justin is Gabriel's younger brother and has fae healing powers while Maggie is a witch and I look forward to more on them in the next book. Plenty of action with vamps, weres and magic with soul stealers and soul chalices to add something different to the mix. A few twists and turns yet ultimately it is a love story and I enjoyed reading this book so I will be buying the next one.

More About the Author

BIO: Christine Ashworth is a native of Southern California. The daughter of a writer and a psych major, she fell asleep to the sound of her father's Royal manual typewriter for years. In a very real way, being a writer is in her blood--her father sold his first novel before he turned forty, and he is still writing and selling novels.

At the tender age of seventeen, Christine fell in love with a man she met while dancing in a ballet company. She married the brilliant actor/dancer/painter/music man, and they now have two tall sons who are as brilliant as their parents, which keeps the dinner conversation lively.

Christine's two dogs rule the outside, defending her vegetable garden from the squirrels, while a polydactyl rescue cat holds court inside the house. Everything else is in a state of flux.
