The characters were good but not particularly charming. Seraphim was too much driven by lust to make me care a lot for him. He was nice, but I feel like the emotions, and sometimes even the surviving instincts, came in second place when pleasure was involved. I had a hard time trying to figure him out.
Fiend was different. I liked him a lot more than Seraphim. When he was in the scene everything became more interesting, he was a great character and the fact that he was supposed to be a villain, as much as a main character and love interest to Seraphim. was something that got my attention and was the perfect hook to make me read the book. As a love interest he was perfect. His emotions and doubts slowly appearing was something I really enjoyed. I believed in his feelings and felt bad for some of the situations he had to face. Even though I loved him as main character, in the villain part he was lacking some aspects I seek in such characters. He was too transparent, which was bothersome. I would expect him to remain as a mystery, as he seemed at the beginning. I also didn’t find too much of a master plan or some kind of villain agenda other than feeding himself.
As for the romance, there were some sweet moments that I enjoyed a lot, especially the way Fiend perceived them. It was more lust than true emotion, but I was pleased with the few moments were the feelings seemed to make an appearance.
The book comes with some warnings that should be consider. It had some sex activities using drugs, of page murder, and some BDSM edge play, among it rape play. Overall I had a great time reading the book and trying to transport myself to this odd word created by the author. It’s not my first book from the author and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

Sweet, sexy, "special" Sera wakes up in a bad place, but Fiend has been waiting for him--with a pretty deviant purpose. There is nothing traditional about this love story, except for the love, I guess. Sera and Fiend belong together, no matter their substantial differences. Their sex is hot, hot, HOT, and they both want to protect the other.
I love Dering's voice, writing from the perspectives of both Sera and Fiend. I love the way she builds relationships, and did I mention the sex? Damn good stuff. Like I said, I never expected to be so charmed by a character who eats brains, but I miss Fiend already. Now one of my favorite books, I was sad when this was over.

Seraphim finds himself in an afterlife. He finds himself in Wish City a place created by Wish for super-humans like Sera and himself.
In Wish City, Sera finds himself in the company of Fiend who may or may not have imprisoned Sera in his house. While Sera finds himself falling for Fiend, he keeps coming across clues pointing out the fact that everything he believes about Fiend might not true. When Fiend’s strange proclivities come to light what will become of Sera and their budding relationship?
This book made for a very interesting read. I personally find the subject of afterlife quite interesting and Wish City is a very innovative outlook on the afterlife. Also, the fact that these people are super-humans is kind of amazing.
What really had me interested was Sera’s power and I really wanted to see what applications would come of having such a power so, I was a bit disappointed about the fact that we didn’t get to see much about that. Sera’s power is deactivated for much of the book and doesn’t really contribute much to the storyline. Fortunately, the loss of emphasis on Sera’s super-ability was made up by all the emphasis on Wish’s ability.
Wish’s super-ability is the fact that everything he creates in his mind becomes reality, like if he makes up a place in his head where super-humans end up after death then this place actually exists and becomes reality. So Wish is basically a miniature God and if he were to turn evil things would actually be very, very bad which actually brings me to the question about how such a powerful human being ended up being captured which just illustrates the fact that there isn’t much we know about how Wish’s ability worked while he was alive but he is definitely the God of Wish City. So you can imagine his surprise when on getting to Wish City he is immediately sedated and imprisoned by his childhood Bogeyman, Fiend, a monster he had forgotten even existed.
Fiend is an amazing character. I must commend the author’s characterisation of Fiend because his character is one that could only have been dreamt up by a kid. He is this rare mixture of sweet with a hunger for brains. There is just something about Fiend that makes it very obvious that only innocence could have birthed his character.
I loved the world of Wish City I especially loved how the author made use of the uniqueness of Wish City to carry the plot forward. This was something that made the story very intriguing.
I loved the premise for the book and the plot. The author paces this book very well. Just before you start getting bored of a particular set of events she turns the tide keeping things interesting at all times.
All in all, this makes for a unique and interesting tale and if you are looking for something different, this is the book to go for.
