As a teenager, Lu Darlington attracted national attention when she and her friend Lisa escaped a sadistic killer known as the Professor of Death. She never told anyone about the daemon who saved her life that day.
Ten years later, Lisa shows up at Lu’s door, fleeing another psychopath stalker. But Lisa’s not the only one seeking Lu after all this time. One by one, the daemons descend:
Voracious Chama. Sinister Black Claw. Beautiful Talion.
Chama wants Lu, but Talion claims her. The women of Lu’s family have always belonged to Talion—and they’ve suffered deeply for it.
As the human threat draws closer, Talion demands that Lu bind herself to him in a harrowing ceremony that will destroy an innocent man and change her forever—but might save Lisa’s life.
Can she navigate the violent intrigues of the daemon world without being consumed by its terrible, all-consuming demands?
Hameedah: So, the cover and blurb is what made me excited to read this book.
The first chapter is interesting because I thought it would start off from a flash back or prologue, but nope it goes straight into the present and little by little it gives you tidbits of the past. Unfortunately, it didn’t keep me interested—I feel like I remember reading something with a similar plot, and I barely went past the first chapter or first pages of the chapter.
The story was forgettable. I honestly cannot remember anything about the characters. Both are haunted by the past, but Lisa even more so, and it has affected her life and led her to some bad choices. When she comes running to Lu, she leads the past right to her door.
The writing was good, but not enough to keep me reading. I usually don’t read books about the otherworld unless it is written well.
Lu seems like the strong one who is determined to move on in life.
Lisa seems like the more vulnerable type who will always struggle.
Lovers of the otherworld would love this book but I’m not sure if it’s for most readers.
