"This is absolutely my favorite urban/ paranormal read in a while!  Delicious! Such a fun, scary world....I am absolutely on the edge waiting for the next installment.  Cross's writing style is so addictive.  The humor and snark alone are enough to make Forged in Fire a must read." --Smexy Books

"Ms. Cross does a fantastic job of creating a world of intrigue and suspense, with just enough sexiness to keep the readers coming back for more." --Night Owl Reviews, TOP PICK

Absolutely amazing. First novel in promising new paranormal series. IZZZAMN!!! *Flails* Hot demon master with dangerous baggage and an alpha boss streak a mile wide, snarky young heroine, just coming into her own womanhood and brave enough to take on the underworld all while getting her man- ummmm duh! Sign me up! Forged in Fire is the start of the new Vessel trilogy and if book 1 is any indication of what is to come, Cross has certainly made a believer out of this paranormal-romancy-urban fictiony reader girl!

Right off the bat we meet Genevieve, on her way to party hard for her 20th birthday. Her good girlfriend Mindy has roped her into another double date with the undesirable Slippery Steve her gnat of a would be suitor who is as annoyingly bothersome as Jude is alluring and fascinating. Ahh Jude Delacroix- great demon name for a formidable demon master. After saving her life, the two embark on a journey that is as dangerous as it is darkly sensuous.

This is absolutely my favorite urban/ paranormal read in a while! Delicious! Such a fun, scary world. Demons that turn your stomach, dark Princes who vie for the innocent Genevieve’s soul. Too damn bad they have to go through Jude to get it! World building was done expertly and without the boring passages of info dumping that often plague introductory novels. I am absolutely on the edge waiting for the next installment. Cross’s writing style is so addictive. The humor and snark alone are enough to make Forged in Fire a must read. I swear my face hurts from all the hardcore grinning I did at Genevieve’s impertinence.

God, but I loved Gen! She was not a complete ball buster but she held her own against Jude, remained true to herself.

The star of this book was definitely Jude... dark, mysterious, powerful, attractive... a really great character. In fact, all of the male characters in this book were very intriguing... in particular the demon Dante. All of the scenes between him and Gen were edgy and had me glued to the pages.
On Gen's twentieth birthday she is awakened and quickly realizes that she is now being hunted by demons to claim her as a vessel. Jude is a demon hunter and her protector... he hopes to teach her to protect herself from the demons as she is thought to be a major player in a prophecy. Dante, a Demon Prince, will stop at nothing to claim her so Jude definitely has his hands full.
I loved all of the descriptive art and the inclusion of Latin in the story... it made it more visual and mysterious. Gen's mom was a painter and before she died her painting shifted to images that left some big question marks as to why she may have died. I hope we get into that more in the next two installments of this trilogy.
My only pet peeve... and it's a small one really... was that I would have preferred a more mature heroine. Her inability to "listen" in the beginning was just slightly nerve wracking... But, Jude did agree with me on that and offered Gen some words of wisdom!

"Your vessel instincts are kicking in to protect you since your brain has apparently taken a leave of absence."

**giggle** Well said Jude... well said... that's where I officially fell in love with that guy!

It didn't take long for Gen's light bulb to go off and start taking her new life seriously... that's what happens when you're being stalked by Demon Princes I guess. And, I'm looking forward to seeing her character continue to evolve.
This really was a great story... engaging, creative and edgy and I do plan on following the rest of the trilogy! I definitely need more of Jude...

Forged in Fire, Juliette Cross
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I’ve mixed feelings about this trilogy....I liked that Genevieve wasn’t a simpering miss, nor one of the popular kick arse heroines so beloved of fantasy recently. They have their place, and work for some stories but aren’t needed in All of them! Lately it seems they’re everywhere, and I’m just tired of reading them. So Genevieve being proficient and able to look after herself when it comes to humans, but not to demons works fine for me.
I love that her professor is so “ don’t be stupid, demons don’t exist”, and can feel her frustration – who wouldn’t want to put him right, but doing so would have her end up with the men in white coats  Then there’s Jude, Dominus Daemonum, Master of Demons, who’s drop dead gorgeous and saves her from the first demon attack. He’s also incredibly bossy and overbearing and at first they have a few head to head arguments about that. Genevieve is still have trouble accepting what he says is true – well, most people would. Some guy attacks you, another saves you and yanks out some grizzled looking creature from his body,  and then tells you you’re some kind of supernatural vessel. Yes – of course you’d think it was true, and not blame it on one too many tequilas....Still, the dangers stack up quickly, and Genevieve soon has to accept he’s right, and she’s is getting to like his attentions too, that helps....Kat, another demon hunter, completes the trio that make up the main part of the story, with smaller roles given to demon prince Dante, who wants to have Genevieve for himself and the head of the hunters George, who drops in to check on things.
