Publisher's Summary

After an accident left her near death, Sera Littlejohn is struggling to piece together her life. But when a violet-eyed stranger reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire.
Ferris Archer takes Sera Littlejohn under his wing now that she is talyan, possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer and his league of warriors have long risked their demon-shattered souls to stop darker spirits from wreaking havoc, but they’ve never fought beside a female talya before. And never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera.
,p>With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever.

Demon intregue

I liked this story and the narrator is as usual good.

The only gripe is that the identity of the worm was evident when his real identity was revealed.

I like this book and look forward to book two FORGED OF SHADOWS being made into an audio book. The male lead is typical of such books, so lost in his own world and self centered superiority he cant see what's in front of his nose until he loses it . .

well worth the money/credit

A bit of a lackluster start to the series

I picked this up purely as I love Renee Raudman's narration: which was, again, excellent. The book; less so.

Yes, as a new series I expect a slow build up as the infodump of the word and its rules are introduced. But it took so long to get up and go that I nearly got up to do something else! Saying that, I quite enjoyed the second half and had a big listening binge at the end to find out what happened next :)

There was plently of good and bad. I liked the premise, the romance between the leads and the secondary characters were fun, if only loosely drawn. I hated Sera's incessant barage of meta-physical questions - it got old quickly. Nor did I like the random bits from the baddies point of view. I also felt really confused about the classes, powers and the hierachy of the demons (all of them: "good", bad and redemption-seeking). However, I really liked the fact that there were these three factions and subtlties and would've liked to find out more.

This hasn't inspired me to pick up another in this series; but I still enjoyed it. Recomended for those who like their paranormal-romance to be more romance than fantasy or action.
