Now the difficult part is telling you why I love the book without telling you all the spoilers.. not easy. When you picture all the mythical Characters you just have to throw out all the stuff you think you know and start over from scratch, who would think that Lucifer fights side by side with Angels, Gargoyles, Vampires and Lycans are the good guys ! I fell in love with Brenna the central character, She is Lucifer's daughter, half demon half witch. She as a small child bound 4 of the major Overlords, an Angel, Vampire, Lycan and Gargoyle to her..they are her playmates, extended family and advisers thru her life. So now that she is 'Maturing' as a demon, here comes the sex talks. Which leave you laughing until you have to wipe your eyes and withstand strange looks, why ?? what would you do when she says "because I was raised Catholic". The book is Erotic, nicely done and not in your face tasteless Porn. She is a Demon going thru the change of demonling to full fledged demon and must be Mortal for a month going thru this change over. Lions, tigers and bears Oh My.. Nothing quite so mundane. She is more Minotaurs, Cerberus and Harpies Oh Well.. Her 4 Overlords as her knights or guardians, try telling her what immortality will bring, hence the sex lecture that leaves you laughing. This book had me laughing out loud at a Dr's office waiting room and blushing when everyone stared, and not being able to tell them it was just another little twist and turn, of which are many that leave you laughing, giggling & cheering that the adversaries she faces, she manages to slip past by the hair of her chinny chin chin.. There are just plain something she shouldn't have been able to do, but then there seems to be a lot of she shouldn't be able to do but does effortlessly. The book was so entertaining I have bought all of the series because it just hooks you, reels you in and you can't get your mind out of this little alternate reality because you just have to know what NEXT..You will laugh, get angry at the betrayals, and royally pissed at the villain all the while wanting to be able to join in on the fun..I finished it took a short nap and am now into book two Dark Illumination. Oh and I forgot there are old Prophesies that tell Villains to cheat and get her killed, which she turns her would be assassins into friends, and the heartbreak that the new prophet is her youngest brother and may die once he tells the prophesy. You will enjoy this book for the rich characters, the slightly wacky way history and theology as we know it are vastly different in her world. The simple fact that her bedroom dresser has a soul of a gay male determined to dress her properly alone is a belly laugh.. Then the bloody fight to the death with the villain just as life on earth hangs in the balance, well you see my point. This is a stand alone story you could read just this and walk away, but then you'd have to be the type to do that with a potato chip too and I think you'll be reaching for another real soon. I know I am !!
