URBAN FANTASY ROMANCE REVIEW: Demonica 3: Passion Unleashed - Larissa Ione

Release Date: 03/11/11


Forbidden Temptations. Fatal Desires. Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter - and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she's been a keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn't all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she's finally met the one man she cannot resist. Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe - her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realises a horrible truth: he's falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.


In the world of fiction it appears that all the good girls love a bad boy and in the case of this, the third book in the Demonica series that its completely true. For our sweetness and light heroine, Serena falls for Wrath, a demon with a man’s passions and desires with a touch of Cassandra’s prophecy for Hector worked in. It’s cleverly written, has some light hearted moments to break up the heart stopping tension and works extremely well for the reader provided you’re in the know on the additional glossary and events particular to this series.

Add to this Larissa’s no holds barred or prisoners taken and it’s a story that will stay with you for quite some time, especially when it comes to prompting the reader to reread to find some of the clues that Larissa’s sleight of hand may have covered whilst you were distracted on the first read through. All in, this was a lot of fun and a title I was pleased that I took the time to read.
