I absolutely love The Demonica series. I couldnt put them down when I first read them so I was so looking forward to the audio version. I listen to audio books daily and all are paranormal romance/urban fantasy, so I am no newbie to audio or this genre. The narrator made it very difficult to listen, I actually dreaded it but did finish because aI love these books. As I said I have listened everyday for about 2 years now to audio books. Every narrator, male and female, were able to identify with each character. I came to know how the character was just by their speech. This narrator mostly sounded like she was reading the book only. Im going to write the publishing company of this audio to beg them to please change narrators for future books. If you listen like I do you will understand immediately what I mean. Sin sounded like a little girl and not the firce woman she is!

I don’t know why I’ve put off listening to this audiobook for so long because it’s hands down the best DEMONICA installment yet! Sin’s story is an emotional one full of highs and lows with plenty of toe curling sex scenes along the way. It took a while for me to get used to Ava Camille Edwards’s narration; ultimately she did an ok job I guess, but I was a little annoyed by this series’ ever changing voice even though it does fit the writing. I enjoyed the main romance as well as Luc & Kar’s side one, and loved the way Larissa Ione wrapped-up this series while also laying the building blocks for LORDS OF DELIVERANCE.
Sin’s tale was the most unique out of the Seminu demons because well, she is one of a kind after all. Her past is rather heartbreaking, and she clearly demonstrated on multiple occasions that being a succubus isn’t as fun as it sounds. Imagine not knowing that you’re a sex demon, and then on your 18th birthday unquenchable unexplainable horniness hits, and you go from being a virgin to a nympho. As a result, Sin’s only ever done the deed to feed, and has been missing out on the finer aspects of love making such as foreplay and deeper connections. She’s a very conflicted character, and I enjoyed following her growth throughout this story.
This novel’s plot revolved around Wargs which are this author’s version of werewolves. Sin’s responsible for a deadly virus that’s sweeping the globe, and instigating a civil war among the furry. I loved learning about the differences between born vs bitten Wargs, Feast Wargs, & Dhampires. Conall, the male lead, falls into the latter category, and his reasons for avoiding relationships at all costs were just as disturbing as the assassin’s. But, when these two broken characters get together they become two pieces of the same whole. The sex scenes are plentiful and HOT, not to mention creative! At one point there’s even a snowball involved…
I struggled a little with Ava Camille Edwards’s narration at first, but once I got into the story I was better able to overlook her monotone delivery thanks to Ione’s superb writing. She wasn’t bad per say, however it felt like Edward’s was straight-up reading the book instead of bringing it to life. The differences between her character voices were minimal, and her rendition of the spicy scenes left something to be desired. In my opinion, her voice is better suited for a younger POV, not a sultry succubus. She was hands down my least favourite narrator in this series.
I’d recommend reading SIN UNDONE over listening to it, but otherwise I enjoyed the conclusion to Larissa Ione’s DEMONICA world. It was great seeing all of the characters one last time, and now I’m psyched to meet the four horsemen!

Larissa Ione may not be as well known as some of the vamp/ supernatural authors out there, but she is def. worth reading/listening to. Her series of characters consist of demons, weres, vamps and they are highly entertaining. This story is about the demon sister Sin and how she finds a mate. It is a great read and at times made me blush and look around to see if anyone could hear the naughty scenes the narrator was describing, via my I pod headphones. I highly recommend it.
