From the Publisher’s Website:
As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she’ll die before she’ll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin’s innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.
Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she’s no stranger: He’s bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld’s most wanted and Con soon learns he’s the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.
About the Author:
I began writing the way so many writers do—the moment I learned to wield a pencil. But even as a child, I didn’t write “kid” stories. I preferred something more dramatic. Something that didn’t include Dick, Jane, and a dog named Spot. I wanted my characters to be named Dracula and my dogs to have names like White Fang or Cujo. I’ll always have my parents to thank for that. They never censored my reading material (though I suspect that if they had truly known what was between the covers of some of the books, they’d have been a little more careful,) so when other girls my age were reading Laura Ingalls Wilder and Judy Blume, I was immersing myself in Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
Later, after I’d joined the Air Force and was in dire need of something to read between shifts at the weather station, I continued to read horror, but I’d branched out into fantasy, and then, finally, romance (though I admit I went kicking and screaming to the latter.)
Turned out that I loved romance! So I started writing it, but again, my style and voice leaned toward the dark, paranormal side. Fortunately for me, paranormal romance, as a sub-genre, was booming. I let my imagination fly, and soon I’d sold a series of dark, sexy paranormal romances to Grand Central Publishing.
This is the latest installment in this paranormal series from Ms. Ione. I can’t say that this is a genre I tend to like but having read the last book, Ecstasy Unveiled I wanted to continue the tale. This book picks up where that one left off and focuses on Sin – the only female seminus demon ever known to exist. Since these are sex demons this is not a book to be read by anyone who doesn’t want a very steamy book. VERY steamy.
The underlying story is one of conflict, genocide and Armegeddon. One could read current events into it very easily. I found this book to be far more violent than the last book and I suppose when the end of the world is nigh violence increases. The intrinsic love story between demon Sin and dhampire Con is well written and one that you can root for. There is a dictionary of terms in the front of the book to help one understand the terminology used. While this is part of a series it can stand alone quite well.
A teaser for the next book in the series is included and I find myself wanting to continue along with these demons, vampires, werewolves and others as they try to save the world from itself. That says that good storytelling is good storytelling no matter the species.
