Angels and Demons should never mix...
Cayn is one of the most hated creatures in Hell, imprisoned and suffering the punishments of the damned for the crime of being born. Losing hope of ever leaving the pits of Hell alive, Cayn would pray for death, except he wouldn’t die, he would become an immortal Incubus whose insatiable hunger for the sexual energy of Humanity would make him the ban of Earth.
Kia isn’t the most obedient Angel, she’s not even among the top thousand, and the only thing keeping her from joining the ranks of the Fallen on Earth, is she’s one of Gabriel’s daughters. But her father’s position as one of the Archangels won’t save her from the trouble she finds herself in when a simple trip to Earth for fun and adventure goes terrible wrong. And it won’t save her from the monster whose cell she stumbled into.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on July 14, 2015
Kia follows a friend who has been kidnapped to Hell. An Angel in Hell that finds herself in not a good situation, trapped in a cell with an Incubus. Neither knows what will happen when they meet and neither can foresee what comes next.
The book summary really is a bit misleading in that it tells a story that doesn’t quite turn out exactly as it might lead you to believe. There’s more to the work than a meeting of an Angel and an Incubus. There is a lot of questions that begin from the first page and continue to the last, and within those questions is built a compelling world and characters.
Both Kia and Cayn are enthralling characters and they both tell a story that holds onto the reader very well. The work is written in a unique way in which each has time to tell their part of the story before the two lives merge and the story continues with the two of them going forwards. Kia is a bit of a lost soul, in more than one way, but there is an inner strength within her that I found worked well when she had control of herself. Once past her fear, once past the moment with Cayn, then there’s something to her, fleeting as it is at times.
Cayn, as an incubus, is a bit different and what’s more interesting is that we really don’t know what he looks like, exactly, until the very last pages of the work. In doing so there is an air of mystery around him that I think worked well. He is a bit different, and through the story those differences come out very clearly. But that isn’t just in his form, but more it is his character, what he believes in, and what he is willing, or more importantly, not willing, to do.
The work is more story than erotica and being so the story holds together well. There is much to consider and when the erotica comes into play, it makes sense in the moment and has a purpose, if not the one that either character expected. The erotica is hot, having a little bit of a mind control aspect to it, but in that it goes both ways, between both characters and in doing so that transforms both in the most interesting way.
In spite of how much I enjoyed the plot, the characters, the ideas within the work, there is one major problem. The work needs another editing pass for all of the spelling and word mistakes that appear in the pages. I can overlook a few minor mistakes, but there are far too many for my liking. Considering that this is the opening to a series, it needs to read better and feel polished and not something that was published too soon. I have that feeling from this work and it shouldn’t be considering how much effort and writing ability these authors have.
I’ll give this work three and a half out of five pitchforks.
Strong characters, a compelling plot, and some very good heat. It’s a shame that the story suffers from the editing problems along the way.
