After months of no work, interdimensional bounty hunter Ronin Meyers jumps at the chance to locate an incubus who’s using succubi as murder weapons. Faced with deportation to hellish Infernum if he fails, Ronin will stop at nothing to take out the incubus and anyone else involved. Even the beautiful succubus who stole his heart—and nearly his life—during the most mind-blowing hour of his existence.Mark of the Sylph and to say it blow me away would be an understatement. Then I saw that Touch of the Angel is about my darlings angles and I couldn't not resist. Maybe I should have.
Night after night, Amara and her fellow succubi are forced to extract special abilities from the strongest Otherworlders for their psychotic master’s growing collection. When the gorgeous angel-demon hybrid she believed to be dead captures her, Amara is both stunned and elated.
But the happily-ever-after Amara’s dreamed about will have to wait. Before she and Ronin can find salvation, they must bring down the madman hell-bent on destroying everything—and everyone—they love. And Ronin and Amara are at the top of his list.
But this review will tell you more about me as a reader not why should or shouldn't you pick up this book. Well here is the thing - after reading Mark of the Sylph I was blown away with the whole concept. In this world we have brothers (the covers describe them physically) but who are also halves - meaning that they're half demons and half other creatures. What's there not to intrigue you about a half-demon and half-angel creature. The whole idea still seems great to me and I enjoyed discovering new creatures and races in this novel only it wasn't as remarkable as the first time. Still that part of the book was really interesting, sadly it wasn't in focus.
Now we get to the real problem for me - adult part of the story. It's not that it's gross or anything - I have read worse trust me, but the problem is - it's boring mostly. That's the issue I have with many adult novels - we fight the bad guys let's get more action, different kind though. You discover something important - time to celebrate, you know the way. It's something in book that people mostly love. But once I again I'm far from most of the people. It becomes boring to me. It loses that spark or the emotion and turns into action - steamy action.
I believe that lovers of adult paranormal novels will adore this book. Ranin is a macho man you cannot resist and Amara is both strong but at times weak girl you can easily connect with. The whole world around them is dangerous and you get plenty of action (both kinds) and it's also mysterious. It has all you could ask for.
Rating: 3 stars.
Until the next time,
