This little number flipped me upside down and back over. I went through all kinds of feels reading this. If you follow my reviews then you know that the Demonica series is one of my all time favorite series. I love Larissa's twist on Heaven, Hell, Angels and Demons. This story in particular is all about Hades. The Jailor of the Dead. The Keeper of the Souls. The Master of Torture in all his blue Mohawk hotness.
As punishment for screwing over Azagoth (a.k.a. the Grim Reaper) thousand of years ago he is forced to serve as jailor for eternity in Hell. He is also not allowed to touch any of the demons or fallen. Would not be so hard if one of the Unfallen wasn't a hot fiery redhead named Cataclysma a.k.a. Cat.
Cat lost her wings while serving Gethel the evil ex-angel that is currently spending a thousand years in a 10x10 cage with Raphael, Lucifer and Satan himself. Determined to get her wings back she spends her days cleaning Azagoth's palace. She realizes that she is not a good housekeeper when she accidently releases souls into Hell that were not cleared by Azagoth. One in particular is a human supposed to go up and not down if you know what I mean. Hoping that she can fix her mistake before Azagoth finds out she enters the inner sanctum. Only meant for the true fallen, hellhounds and demons. She quickly realizes she is in trouble and gets captured by demons determined to open a portal to the outside world.
Hades learns of an Unfallen in his realm and goes to stop the demons before they can finish their ritual. He realizes that Cat is the unfallen and instead of killing her like he should, he heals her and takes her back to his place (if you would call it that).Read more ›
Is it possible to make the Lord of the Dead likable? One wouldn't think so, he's a bit cocky and a whole lot of mean. His job is to torture and punish and he reports directly to Azagoth, The Grim Reaper. We've seen bits of him through out the Demonica Series and never has she come across as a likable character, but you know what Larissa was able to take this unlikely hero and make him on of my favorites of the series.
Cataclysm AKA Cat, was cast from Heaven after finding herself unknowingly in the middle of a plot to kick of the Apocolypse. As an Unfallen Cat's fearful of spending her time penitence on earth where she is in danger of being dragged into Sheoul where she would become a True Fallen. Instead she takes on a position in Azagoth's realm of Sheoul-gra determined to do the near impossible and earn her way back into heaven. There is only one problem, she is a horrible house keeper, continually mucking up her menial jobs and earning the ire of Azagoth. She also manages to make an ally in Azagoth's mate, Lilliana and catches the eye of a True Fallen guy with a blue mohawk and body made for well....sin. As if life as a bumbling Unfallen with a serious crush on the Lord of the Dead wasn't bad enough Cat manages to send the entire Underworld into a tailspin when she accidentally opens the portal to Sheoul's Inner Sanctum.
I loved this book and have to say it is probably one of my favorites in this series in a long time. There is just something about the tortured soul of Hades and a naive angel coming together to save the Underworld and in the end each other.Read more ›
You could say that jailing the souls of the evilest of the evil had hardened Hades of the last few thousands of years. How could it not have? He had to be a tough ass in order to keep all of these wretched souls and creatures afraid of him. Of course it could have been made a bit more comfortable, but he had earned a punishment from Azagoth many years ago and was still paying for his transgression. He had been used to all of that, though, and really hadn’t thought of things getting better or changing for quite some time. He had resigned himself to the fact this was as good as it was ever going to get…until he met Cat. Then things changed…but he was forbidden to go anywhere near her. Ever. And that’s what he hated most…
Cat knew her current cleaning crew situation could be much worse, so she wasn’t going to complain. Besides, getting brief glimpses of Hades during her daily cleaning of Azagoth’s home made things marginally better. He was beyond a sexy bad boy. He was also totally off-limits because she was here to be working off her indiscretion in unknowingly helping almost starting Armageddon, not oogling Hades. Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she had to go and accidentally get herself stuck in Hades realm with no way back. She knew he was going to be mad. She knew he would hate having her here.Read more ›
