The book starts off with a bang and doesn't stop. I read the whole thing in a couple of hours!
I'll admit that the beginning was harder for me to read. There was some repetitive description, but by the end, the author really found her stride. The sex scene that went on for pages was HOT!
I would definitely recommend it to anyone else who's looking for a late-night indulgence. :)
(This was a Beta Read)
I knew I would love this book the minute I started reading it. The first line was a hook, then the follow up was fantastic. A world where Hell explodes onto Earth is a concept I'm familiar with, though it is rarely done justice. This story does it so well. The introduction to Baxa, who remains unnamed and mysterious until the last minute, is delicious. And so is he. Possibly the hottest lead male I've read for a while.
I will say though, that I really love Cira. It is so refreshing to read a strong, confident female who isn't afraid of herself. I've read a lot lately about how 'unrealistic' it is for females to end up in bed with the male MCs early into a story, but this one is done with such style. It's Cira's choice when and how she wants to act on their mutual attraction. From the first moment she sets eyes on him she knows what she wants. And this girl, unlike so many others, isn't afraid to take what she wants, when she wants it.
The concept is original and well done. The characters are well explored and nicely detailed for a novella. I could easily read book after book of these characters. R.A Sears has just become one of my favourite authors for this genre.
But Cira is never one to take things lying down as you can gather from one of my favourite lines “I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees, you leathery freak.” But Baxa might just be her match.
Baxa is only half demon, so he doesn't see the forced breeding program in quite the same light as the pure bloods. "Children to bolster our ranks are the ultimate goal, but... I feel the journey should be enjoyed rather than clumsily rushed through.” And he does want to take his time with Cira.
Slight elements of BDSM and a steamy scene make this an adult book, but I for one am looking forward to the next instalment including finding out what happened to Cira's friends for although they were only in the first couple of pages you did grow to like them.
I received a free copy for an honest review.
This is a well written short story that details Cira's experiences during and following the Infernals' takeover of the human world and what she encounters, most importantly Baxa the half-blood demon who claims her for his own. As this is a short story, there is not a lot of time for relationship development. However, there was time for some really hot sex scenes.
I look forward to the next story in the series and reading more from Ms. Sears.
