We return to the demon hospital with it's preternatural doctors and nurses. This book is about Shade, the second brother who is also an incubus. Shade gets kidknapped by Ghouls who butcher demons and sell their parts on the black market. Hmm, nasty stuff. While trapped in his cell he runs into an ex girfriend who he cruelly dumped 10 months earlier, Runa..Runa wants to kill him (and who can blame her?) but she isn't the same girl that he knew before. She's ....different. Somehow (well, I'm not telling you how..) they are bonded together but are thrown into a race against time because Shade has a curse that could kill both of them. Runa has been working for a secret divison of the army and has been sent to spy on Shade and the demon hospital but is conflicted when she sees Shade and his collegues saving the lives of demons who have been ill treated by humans. This is a fast paced book with a great balance of romance, hot sex, male bonding and urban fantasy. You will struggle to put it down! We meet some new characters and revisit the old, there are some fabulous scenes with Kynan and Gem and the author does a brilliant job of enticing us with the next book which is out in March 2009.
I can't say too much without giving it away. If you like The Black Dagger Brotherhood and The Dark Hunters then this is one for you. There are some action scenes and a hideous bad guy holding a grudge but there is also a good dose of warm and fuzzies to make you smile. The characterisation is well written and for me...that's what makes the book work, I need to find a connection with the characters and IMO the author does a great job of sucking the reader in and leaving enough little clues to make you pine for the next story.
For any paranormal romance fans out there...add this one to your wishlist now but I would recommend reading the first book, Pleasure Unbound first.
I haven't read the other books in the series and I'm not sure I will. The story starts off pretty interesting and feels like it'll be quite good. But there's nothing redeeming about any of the characters. The female lead seems to have no backbone and keeps going back to the 'hero' who cheated on her and then was also going to kill her! The sad part of the story is, the only reason he ever 'falls' for her is because he is forced to - she just happened to be the woman who's there. This is not a true love story. You dislike him for his selfishness and her for her stupidity. Also the rest of the male characters - such as the leading man's brothers - are all pretty much selfish and self centred ....I mean one of them basically mind rapes his so called close friend and everyone's ok with it? Or at least not that enraged????
I was hoping to see how the leading man would fall for his 'mate' but that didn't really happen. The leading woman although stronger for what she's been through with him the first time around ended up still being weak.
I ended up skimming to the end as it was too painful and a waste of time. The characters were so twisted, stupid and unlikable. I was really disappointed with what could have been a great story!
Blurb - Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn't resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he'd seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman's evil plans.
Desire Unchained is the 2nd book in the Demonica series by Larissa Ione, as I have only recently discovered this series I’ve read this book straight after finishing book #1 and for me this has worked well. This time round I have not fumbled over the species names, or struggled to understand the dynamics of who’s good and who’s not.
This book focuses around the story of Shade and Runa but like the first book it has beautifully set up the next book which I’m assuming will be Wraiths story.
Ok so the good bits....
• The love story... it’s a bit sappy but I love that fate brings them together even if it’s in a weird way.
• Roag a brother back from the dead seeking revenge, just brilliant.
• This book looks at the world away from the hospital dynamic and gives us a wider view of the demon world.
And the not so good bits....
• In book #1 the sex was smoking hot and for me in this book there just wasn’t enough of it, and what there was lacked the passion.
• The weird BDSM vibe, shade does it as he is compelled to help women who need pain to release their issues??? Yet he hates it??? It was just a bit weird for me.
• I know this is a world of demons but some of the stuff was just a bit to fantastical (ironic I know).
Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this book and I liked Shade and Runa but something about them left me a bit disappointed I think because he was facing the curse and trying not to love her I didn’t feel that passion and desire that Tayla and Eidolon had.
I loved that this has become an ensemble cast though, there are now loads of characters and we are seeing glimpses of them developing and ultimately I’m assuming they will all have their own books.
I can’t wait for Wraiths book he’s so damaged but you know that though he will fight it when he falls in love he will fall hard.
God Kynan and Gem now they have chemistry and now he’s a dormant fallen angel gotta love this author’s twists and turns.
I think it’s safe to say I’m becoming a tiny bit fangirl about this series I’m gonna compare it to JR Wards brilliant black dagger brotherhood series which I adore both of these authors write in a way that you are pulled into the world and are then desperate for the next book to be pulled in again.
Book #3 here I come I can’t wait!!! [...]
This is just as good as the first in teh series (you must read them in order to get the most from the books). Larissa Ione is now on my 'must buy' list! Cant wait for more!
