Really liked this, but I guess it's going to take me some time to get used to the dynamics between all the characters. There were times they were quite a bit brute, to put it mildly, but as the story progressed, you could see that that is really the way they're wired. The world building was pretty good, with a lot possibilities for the lot to progress. As for Ashlyn and Maddox's relationship, things start good, but they get to a stand still halfway through and then things really pick up the pace until the end. Really good read. ( )

I really got bored with this book. I usually start a series and read the whole thing. For this one, I just didn't get hooked. The characters were interesting and Im sure if I tried again I could muster up a better opinion but there is just no enough time in the reading day to go for things that don't seem interesting. ( )

Pretty awful. All I've got to say. ( )

Just not for me. I read 245 pages, really hoping it would take off, but it was mainly about Maddox beating things while obsessing about Ashlyn. ( )

My first time reading this author and I felt as the story was entertaining. It's a different twist on the supernatural, with former warriors having been bound and cursed with demons, all because of Pandora and the infamous box.

Maddox (who's paired up with the demon of violence), didn't really do much for me. But I would guess it's hard to come across nice when one is driven past the point of rage, and who has to die every night at midnight. I did feel sympathy for Ashlyn, who unfortunately is able to hear every conversation that has ever taken place wherever she happens to be on the globe. I mean hell, I tune out present conversations at times, no telling how insane I'd be if I had to endure hearing EVERY conversation, from any time period, no matter how long ago a conversation occurred. I just wish it was explained exactly how/why that happened to her.

Throw in Hunters (mortal men who are intent on finding the box and putting the demons back inside), and Bait (women who are supposed to set up the warriors), and you've got an interesting mix; especially once it's revealed who one of the Hunters is.

Not a bad start to the series, although the ending was somewhat predictable. I plan on reading the series, especially since I can't wait to get to Aeron's and Torin's books. ( )

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member--a man trapped in a hell of his own.
