Felicity Heaton

The King of Demons and the Devil’s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for her… until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen—a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.

He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.

A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeus’s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.

Review: Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook

In this thrilling conclusion to the Guardian series, New York Times bestselling author Meljean Brook delivers another stunning page-turner, in which the fate of humanity depends upon a tortured warrior winning the trust—and heart—of the woman he wounded…

Title: Guardian Demon
Series: The Guardians #8
Author: Meljean Brook
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Berkley
Date of publication: August 6, 2013
Goodreads || Amazon

After a terrifying encounter in Hell destroys her trust in Michael, the Guardian’s powerful leader, former detective Andromeda Taylor is ready to call it quits as one of the angelic warriors and resume her human life again. But when demonic forces threaten her closest friends and she uncovers a terrifying plot devised by Lucifer, Taylor is thrown straight into Michael’s path again…

To defeat Lucifer, Michael needs every Guardian by his side—and he needs Taylor more than any other. The detective is the key to keeping his own demonic side at bay, and Michael will do anything to protect her and keep her close. And when Taylor manifests a deadly power, her Gift might tip the scales in the endless war between Heaven and Hell…or it might destroy them both with a single touch.

I'm a huge fan of Meljean's 'Guardian' series, so Guardian Demon was a bittersweet experience for me, and I think for every fan out there, since it's the last of the series.  It's fair to say that We have waited so long for this book, for Michael's and Taylor's story it's not even funny. But boy, it did worth it!

Although, it was a bit slow and  monotonous here and there and that took away a little from the overall epicness of the finale, hence my four stars rating. I am a little disappointed, because I didn't get the feeling of a final book, when I'm gripping the edge of my seat, (almost)crying, extremely afraid or excited to turn the pages, even though there was way more going on than in any of the previous books. There were a lot of potential areas for conflicts that Meljean should have used thus creating a way more intense story. It was amazing, but it could have been the ultimate epicness.

However, despite all of the above, Meljean just cannot write a bad book. Maybe it's not the best - for me personally -, maybe it has flaws, but still, 'Guardian Demon' is just so damn good! It delivers almost everything I expect from a series finale: intense, all consuming love story, incredible twists, the whole crew - Guardians, humans, vampires, halflings, everyone you love - teaming up against the ultimate enemy and brings us an epic all-or-nothing showdown. 'Guardian Demon' started with a bang and ended with a blast.

I just have to mention that how insanely good Meljean is in character writing. Of course, she's a fantastic writer overall, but her characters are just a class all by themselves! When Michael gives a speach, you can't help but hear his voice, be moved by it. It's like if his psychic song would have reached you too. And his characterization (without giving away anything), the fact that he's indeed a big hero, but not heroic. His nature is not at all about love and goodness. He's not a perfect good guy everyone thinks he is. Rather it's all his personality, his beliefs are that make everyone easily think like that. He's one of the most unique heroes I've ever met. And every other character have their own personality, agendas and beliefs. It's just amazing, how multidimensional they are. And I think the greatest thing in the series, explained beautifully especially in this book is how it sees things like free will, or faith, or whether there is a reason behind bad or good things happening. I loved these parts. Also kudos to Meljean for not going all "deus ex machina" on us. No easy, cheap & cliche solution that solves everything in a millisecond.

Anyway, it's not my favorite book in the series but still, I loved it, finished it in no time, and even though all good things must come to an end, I am sad to see this series end. It deserves a much bigger fan base, so I don't accept any excuse for not wanting to read it, such as "oh it's a series, I don't want to wait for the next book...", because it is finished! And it is absolutely phenomenal! So go ahead, buy it, read it, you're gonna love it!

Favorite character(s): Michael, Lillith, Khavi, Jake
Favorite scene(s): Starting scene, the "plotting the world saver plan" scene and the final battle.
Favorite quote(s):
Michael moved to the bottom of the temple stairs, where she sat on the third step. When he sank to his heels, his eyes were on level with hers, his expression grave. “Two and a half years is no time, it’s true. Unless the woman you need to apologize to more than any other lies in a bed. And you visit her almost every hour, hoping that she will wake, yet her mind remains silenced because of what you've done. Then two and a half years can be an eternity.”

PS.: I just read that there's gonna be a novella and a possible book for Khavi in the future and I'm so freaking happy right now!!

Review: Cloak & Silence by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Title: Cloak & Silence
Series: The League #6
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Genre: Sci-fi Romance / MM Romance
Publisher: Self published
Date of publication: July 8th, 2013
Goodreads || Amazon
One of the fiercest soldiers the Phrixians have ever produced, Maris Sulle has been an outsider the whole of his life. He grew up with a secret that cost him everything- His birthright, his family and his military career. In all his life, he’s only had one love and he has sacrificed his own happiness to see his best friend reunited with the woman he loves. But now that his good deed is done, he feels lost and adrift. Even though they do their best to include him in their new family, he’s once again on the outside looking in.

Ture has spent his life hiding from everyone around him while trying desperately to fit in. His family, the world, you name it. Badly hurt by everyone he’s ever known, he trusts no one except his own best friend. And honestly, he can’t understand why he trusts her. Nor can he believe her when she describes a loyalty between friends the likes of which he’s never seen.

But when he is in his darkest hour, he’s saved by a hero he thought only existed in novels. A man who is every bit as scarred and mistrusting as he is. One who has no interest in being dragged into another relationship with anyone.

Having spent his life as a living study of doomed relationships, Maris is well aware of the courtship and fiasco that invariably follows. Still, there is something about Ture he can’t resist. Something that won’t let him walk away when he knows he should.

But when old enemies return to threaten them both, they either have to stand together or die alone.

Overall: I give it “only” 4.5 stars, because despite how good it was, it’s still just a short story and that is exactly what we got. Nothing special other than it’s loveable. And sometimes there’s repetition of certain “information” and phrases, which throws me off a little in general. So all in all, I’m happy Sherri was brave enough to write this and I got to read it. I definitely recommend reading C&S.
