Well, I typically resist reading books about demons and see what I've been missing? I'm glad I let my Goodreads friends talk me in to this one. I loved it. The mythos made sense and was easy to understand. The hospital angle was great. The characters well developed. The writing was smooth and easy. Lots of angst and romance with well done love scenes which were integral to the story and didn't bog the action down. I wish now I'd made sure I had the rest of the series before I started this one. Darn it, now I'll have to hurry up and get the rest. ( )

Larissa Ione's introduction into the world of demons was quite memorable! Her demons are deliciously sexy. I enjoyed the chemistry between Tayla and Idolin, even if some of the scenes there at the beginning were a bit questionable in their ethics for doctor and patient. The world-building was phenomenal, and I loved the conflict set up between each of the brothers and also the conflict of Tayla having to decide what to do about her being half-demon. Will definitely be reading on to the next book.

Trigger warnings: dubious consent, rough sex, graphic violence, discussion and remembering of rape

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ( )

It introduced us to a lot of future characters, but otherwise this was easy to get into and follow along with the paranormal world building elements. It didn't blow me away, but I was entertained throughout, and am going to continue with the series. ( )

1.5 stelle.

Non sapendo da dove iniziare, parto col dire qual è l'unica cosa che mi è piaciuta di questo libro: parte del world-building, ovvero la presenza di svariate razze di demoni e dei loro peculiari poteri, l'Aegis (che li caccia) e Eidolon, in parte (alias, il suo carattere).
Basta, finito qui. Credo che quello che ho apprezzato sia troppo poco per dare due stelle a questo libro.
Quello che non mi è piaciuto:
- troppo sesso. Dopotutto doveva essere un romance, non un porno. Nella prima parte c'è una scena di sesso ogni 30 pagine, alias i protagonisti si vedono e a lui viene un'erezione e lei ha voglia di fare sesso. E 'sti qua nemmeno si conoscono. I poteri dei demoni che potevano essere 'qualsiasi-super-potere-immaginablie' hanno a che fare col sesso. EBBASTA! Siate un po' seri, cattivi! Siete demoni e non porno-star u.u
- Tayla: l'ho odiata dall'inizio alla fine. Pazza e irascibile: cambia idea una pagina si e una no. Passa dal voler farsi Eidolon al volerlo ammazzare. Il tutto con delle spiegazioni poco valide.
- La trama molto scarna. Quasi Tutto ruota attorno all'amore-odio fra i due protagonisti e alla caratterizzazione dei protagonisti.
Si salvano i colpi di scena che non posso spoilerare.

E' un vero peccato. i suoi libri dei Lords of Deliverance li ho amati, nonostante il genere fosse quello che fosse. Se riuscissi a trovare delle riassunti dei libri successivi, sarebbe una vera manna, altrimenti li dovrò leggere in fretta in furia per sapere com'è riuscita a collegare la serie Demonica con i LOD.

Ok, so this was the Vaginal Fantasy alt book and I was forewarned by Felicia Day, who did the picking... Well, if the idea was the contrast to the YA book it was there. This, I think, borders on erotica (unless it can be defined as such, I'm not great with categories). Anyway, it maybe had bit more "sexy times" as the girls would say than I normally read, but I was pleasantly surprised. Because I mostly avoid erotica on the grounds that I rarely like the way sex scenes are written. This was pretty good on that account. And what is even better, it actually had an interesting plot that would've worked without the sex. I'm intrigued to check out the next book in the series. But I have a lot of reading to do, so I don't know when/if that'll happen. But, I was positively surprised, I didn't have a lot of expectations of this book and in the found it entertaining. I don't think it's the world's greatest literature or even my favorite series, but still, refreshing. ( )

Epigraph
The demon is a prince of the air and can transform himself into several shapes, delude our senses for a time; but his power is determined, he may terrify us but not hurt.

--Robery Burton, Anatomy of Melancholy
Dedication
This book is dedicated to every single person who came to the aid of my family after Hurricane Katrina...you were instrumental in getting me back on my feet and writing again. Without you, this book would not have been possilbe. I will never be able to thank you often enough or well enough, but know that I will not forget.

To my parents, who never stopped encouraging me, who supported my dream from the beginning. I love you very much.

To my husband, Bryan, and my son Brennan, who put up with countless nights of hearing, "You're on your own for dinner," while I was under deadline. You mean the world to me.

To Roberta Brown, for being an incredible agent and having faith in my writing, and Melanie Murray for being patient, helpful, and enthusiastic about this project.

To HelenKay Dimon, Alison Kent, Lynn Viehl...you know why.

To my fellow Gnippers, who have been rooting me on for years.

Last but not least, to Karen Boss and Dee Knight, who took time out of their busy schedules to provide last-minute resads and the best advice ever, and Stephanie Tyler, Jaci Burton, and Lara Adrian, for more than I have room to list.
First words
Had Eidolon been anywhere but the hospital, he would have killed the guy pleading for his life before him.
