Actually pretty good!

Despite being so short it managed to develop the characters and really make me care about them. ( )

In DEMON BAIT Moira Rogers has created a magically charged dystopian landscape with just the right amounts of action, world building, and romance. As much as I enjoyed the back and forth of the staring couple, the pacing of this book should share top billing. I never felt left behind, and even better, I never felt bored with drama or politics. It doesn't hurt that the chemistry between Gabe and Marci is spot on, despite some of the less popular romance tropes rearing their heads (its-for-your-own-good, you-can't-resist-me). Rogers employees a deft touch, which drew me in and left me wanting more. The community of Rochester has freedoms and passions that seem to have all but disappeared from the rest of the human landscape, reminiscent of the dynamic in Nalini Singh's Psy/Changling series. Not that Marci has been emotionally neutered, just that the life for people in mainstream communities has been... sanitized. The frontier of Rochester is a last bastion of romance and freedom, one that I look forward to visiting again.

Full review to follow.

My thoughts:
I have to start this review with a quick disclaimer - I LOVE EVERYTHING these women write! Having said that...
Once again I found myself reading about an incredibly strong woman and the ultimate badboy/goodman destined to be together, but struggling to stay apart.

Things I enjoyed about this story: characters, the setting, the storyline, the ending
Things I wish had been different about this story: length and backstory

The characters are wonderful and I was thrilled that it was set in Minnesota because that is where I live, but I was left with some holes that more backstory could have filled and would have happily read at least another hundred pages (or more) about Gabe and Marci.
All-in-all, another fantastic installment from these clever wordsmiths - well worth the read. ( )
