And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he’d thought was forever beyond his reach – …until now.

    Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris’s arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up.

    Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally—or tear them apart?

  • Bomy’s Flutter: fun&sexy

  • World Building: Fab, the usual LotU mix of gods, demons, angels – all kinds of cool paranormal and mythology elements.
    Characters: We finally get Paris and Seinna’s HEA. Well, HFN I guess since I can see them getting into serious trouble again. It’s their nature, lol. I liked them, they had good chemistry and their one on one was very hot, though I guess I found them less thrilling then I might have thought I would. Paris had this bad boi vibe more then others in recent books of the series, and Sienna seemed such a spunky, stubborn thing, I thought there’d be more sparks. There were, but not fireworks as I’d expected.
    It was cool to see more of Ashley and Maddox’s story (if you’ve read the series so far, you know something major was bound to happen in their couple and it did here! xD ), and there we appearances of plenty other characters. I can’t say I fell for one of them particularly this time, or maybe I did a bit for one.
    Favorite Character: Galen. (yeah, you saw that right, lol. What can I say, Hope is a powerful demon, he he)
    Plot: The story evolved on more then one line, and it was cool to watch. Hotness, romance, fights, the whole package. I’m particularly curious about Galen now, lol. I’m an evil reader, no shame whatsoever.
    Writing: Third person narrative from a few character POV-s, but mainly his and hers for Sienna and Paris since it’s their book in the series. Cool stuff, as usual.
    Curb Appeal: As a matter of personal taste, this is the best cover in the series. Instant buy, even if it wouldn’t haven been Gena Showalter.

    All in all, this was a fun and sexy read, I had a good time with it but maybe I was expecting more tension in the Sienna/Paris couple. I’m a glutton for angst and tortured characters though, keep in mind. If you haven’t read this yet, try it out.
