Tabitha isn't your normal human woman. She's got a few secrets up her sleeve, including her job hunting the same evil demons that attacked her as a child and put her sister in a coma. Every night, she roams the streets and sends wicked daemons to their deaths. She's always ready for a fight and more than capable of taking care of herself.
Her new assignment, however, isn't going to be so easy. Not only will she be going up against a new and mysterious group of daemons but she'll have to do it alongside the one person in the world she'd rather stay away from. The sparks between them are usually more hazardous than sexual, though Tabitha can't really deny her attraction to the arrogant pain in the rear.
Kiernan has waited for a chance to get closer to Tabitha since he first laid eyes on her. And her frigid attitude toward him has done nothing to cool the flame he feels for her. Unfortunately, this mission is much too dangerous for the pair to become to distracted by each other. Trouble lurks around every corner and our couple must learn to trust each other if they ever stand a chance of surviving.
This book was great. I've actually read a few other books by this author but they were all contemporary romances. I didn't even realize she wrote paranormal until I saw this book on NetGalley but I knew I had to give it a shot. I sure am glad that I did.
To start with, our main characters were fantastic. Tabitha was strong and stubborn, sometimes to the point where I wanted to strangle her, but she had good reason for wanting to rid the world of the evil creatures who terrorized it. Her past is slowly revealed throughout the course of the story and each twist caught me by surprise. It wasn't predictable in any way.
Kiernan was another nice surprise. His character was humorous and a little cocky at times. But it was all in good fun, even when he was tormenting his Tabby Cat. The way his healing powers worked was a nicely sensual angle added to the romance. The chemistry between the pair was steamy and the love scenes sizzled.
As for the plot, there is a bigger picture here than what we get to see in the couple of weeks that the book covers. The supernatural battle between the different daemons and the council's part in everything is explained. While it felt like a complex story, it was easy to understand. I foresee this paranormal world offering a lot of good stories in the future.
I have got to find out what happens with Racine and a certain bubbly woman who has her sights set on him. I hope there are more books to come. Five Kakodaemon-slaying suns!
Full review on Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog
It took me a while to review this - don't you hate when your offline life gets in the way of completing online stuff? - but I finally made some time. Because this story totally deserves it!
Daemons are a threat much too real for humanity. Divided between those who help humans, the Euadaemons, and those who wish to destroy it, the Kakodaemons, they fight each other in a struggle of power. The Euadaemons even have humans helping them in their cause, people who hide some amazing talents of their own. One of these people is Tabitha. Hiding her skills is much too difficult already, and yet she has to up her game even more when she's paired up with Kiernan, an Euadaemon who's hell bent on sleeping with her. Can she pull it off enough for this mission to end and get rid of this insufferably sexy man?
This whole book was freaking awesome! It combines paranormal with contemporary and hot romance just perfectly. The pace was fast and slow, fast and slow, alternating to allow you to take big gulps of each in every dose, and the tension between the characters just about killed me. Not to mention how much I wanted to straight up lick that gorgeous, hilarious hunk-of-a-man, Kiernan!
The only downside to all this was Tabitha herself. I understand where she comes from, given her past it was hard to trust Kiernan's kind, but come on, woman! You work with those guys, and Kiernan himself never gave you one single reason to be so hostile towards him. And let's not forget that she was so persistent in doing things her way, she nearly ended up dooming them all - most of all, herself - when she pulled that stupid stunt near the end of the book and revealed what she really was to the ones she was after.
Still, I don't think the rating should go down for her - I will not let her ruin this for me. And I will certainly try out any other books from this series, because there is a good handful of people I wish to see find their Tira, as the book's universe called them, and I'm not stopping till it happens!
