Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.

Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender. Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.

Lore is an assassin and we met him back when he was being paid to kill the Seminus brothers. Who also happened to be HIS brothers, but he didn't know that at the time. It's all water under the bridge... sorta. Because his latest task is to kill Kynan — you know, the guy he saved in the last book. Doing so will alienate his newfound family, but not doing it will see his sister destroyed. Oh, and Kynan is protected in more ways than anyone knows. How is Lore to complete his mission when a gorgeous angel is standing in his way?

Idess is that angel. She's an almost-angel tasked with protecting her primori and Kynan is one of them. But someone out there is targeting her charges and there is so much more to this plot than even I expected. I was thrilled with the forbidden element to what Idess and Lore shared and I was entertained by this book right up until its last page.

Ever get so distracted by the story that when a twist comes up that you should have predicted but didn't, all you can do is shake your head and laugh at yourself? Well, that was me. I knew something was coming, but the author wrote this story in such a way that I was wholly enamored with the characters and forgot to suss out the twist that knocked me on my ass.

In the end, and I'm sorry if this spoils it for anyone else, but I'm glad Roag got just what he deserved.

Guest appearances: all of the seminus demons and their mates (and Sin), Reaver, Azagoth, other angels, other demons.

I also read the companion novella of the series, Demonica #3.5 (which takes place before Ecstasy Unveiled):

Eternity Embraced

Demon slayer Andrea Cole has always taken down the demons and vampires she hunts without mercy. But when a fellow slayer is captured and turned into a vampire by a sadistic monster, she must choose between loyalty to her family and the man she loves.

Kaden Quinn has dedicated his life to slaying vampires, so when he is turned into one, his greatest nightmare comes to life. And when the woman he loves is thrown into a dungeon with him ― as food ― he must battle new instincts and old desires, and choose between his life, and hers.

I gave this 4 stars. It was a really quick read (maybe five minutes) and gave us more insight into the lives of the Aegi and the prejudice they have against demons and the like. On a mission, Kaden was turned into a vampire, but the love of his life, Andrea, doesn't care. She loves him still and wants to be with him and the safest place for them is with Tayla's cell. She and Eidolon make an appearance. The End.

Air Force veteran Larissa Ione traded in a career in meteorology to pursue her passion of writing. She has since published dozens of books, hit several bestseller lists, including the New York Times and USA Today, and has been nominated for a RITA award.

She now spends her days in pajamas with her computer, strong coffee, and supernatural worlds. She believes in celebrating everything, and would never be caught without a bottle of Champagne chilling in the fridge…just in case.

She lives in Wisconsin with her retired U.S. Coast Guard husband, her son, a rescue cat named Vegas, and her very own hellhounds, a King Shepherd named Hexe and a Belgian Malinois named Duvel.
