HER TOUCH IS DEADLYAs 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.
HIS HUNGER CAN’T BE DENIED
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. (back cover comments)
Can I just say WOW? Ok, found Larissa Ione by chance with her Demonica Series. I'm partial to my weres/shifters and my demons. So when I tried her first book (Pleasure Unbound) I was hooked. Ione has set up an underworld like none other. The group of incubi demon brothers have pasts to overcome and these books pack a great story with an exciting action filled plot, plus down and out, hot grinding sex...so how can you not be hooked?? Sin Undone is the 5th book in this series and I was on pins and needles waiting for it. I finished it in less than a day.
Our brothers find they have a SISTER, the only female Seminus demon born (as her brother calls her Smurfette). She's grown up alone and hard and that shows in the icy shell around her heart. She's a tough assassin - BAD ASS assassin - and she doesn't like to depend on anyone, tossed in with being a succubi and being "owned" most her life. Her world is ripped from her since she is responsible for dying werewolves around the world. She unprotected and on the run, when she finds she has to depend on someone. Con steps up, but can he break that icy shell? He's sexy and she's been there done that, but he's the only one that can work her to do what's needed. Can he over come his feelings on the friends and family that have died because of her.
This book was packed full of action, full on battles, fighting off assassins, sex, cliffhangers, and an extra bonus romance. Ione's writing is in the here and now, I really relate to how she writes and I love that. She references the real world and things I grew up with. The brothers, mates, and friends all have a genuine banter that sets me right in the room with them. I didn't want to leave and I hope we have a few more in this series.
As the book ends, we get a prelude to a break off series that I have high hopes for. I see the characters in Demonica stepping in briefly in the new series.
Ione also writes as Sydney Croft.
I definitely recommend this Demonica Series, Sin Undone Book 5.
