Seriously, I dare you not to fall in love with at least one character...vampires, werewolves, demons...don't take just my word for it, check out the reviews on Amazon.com (careful though...some have spoilers..it's so annoying) or have a look on her website to read the excerpts.
I've picked up a lot of paranormal romance books in the last couple of years only to put them down because there isn't anything new, the genre has spawned a few pale imitations and it's an over used formula...usually about a group of supernatural hotties trying to keep humans safe from harm...features an innocent woman with major attitude who has NEVER had any previous sexual experience. Yawn. This book is different. These supernaturals are just trying to stay alive after being wrongly slayed by a group of human vigilantes. Yes..there is leather clothing involved..and tattoos but the main characters are actually doctors or nurses who work in an underworld hospital. They try to patch up the supernatural community when they have been injured by the slayers or other paranormal activity. It's a unique idea and the book has many twists and turns. Also..Read more ›
If Larissa had just described the mind reading scene with originality, instead of saying it was like Spock's mind reading trick (the thing he does with his hand to someone else face), then it would have been a lot better. Again, sloppy writing. And if you shorten werewolf to 'were' then you need let us know that it doesn't mean were, as in 'we were fighting'(for example by using italics or a capital W).
Additionally the fight scenes were rubbish. Blows were exchanged. She took a hit to the ribs. But what actually happened? Was she punched or kicked? And I thought the demons had unsheethed their claws, so a 'blow' seems a bit unlikely, compared to a swipe or a slash. Again, I'm not convinced, neither the fight itself nor the setup for the fight were convincing. Especially compared to the Kate Daniels fight scenes.
The world is interesting, but it has not been thought out. How does a species of demon survive if they never reproduce? A bit of thought can tear this world apart. And the sex scenes, well, the main character had her stomach cut open(by a doctor wanted to see if she was a demon) and so she was covered in stitches etc, and the first thing she does when she wakes up is have sex with the demon doctor in the hospital. Not really impressed with that one, her character doesnt ring true. It reads poorly, the dialogue is clunky and the characters are a wooden.
In a brief summary, it reads like fan fiction. 4/10. 2.5/5.Read more ›
I couldn't choose between this series and JR Wards series, but I'm glad that I started with Ione. Many reviewers compare both series to each other and I think the comparisons are many and justified, but both authors bring enough differences to separate them. If you've just found Larissa Ione, then I would strongly recommend you take your pleasure reading this series and then move onto JR Ward after when you're feeling all lost and empty without the Demonica series!
So, what's great about this series of books then? (and you MUST read them as a series because you'll get so much enjoyment that way). The men, after all that's what it's all about isn't it? Surely you don't start reading this book because you're interested in finding out about a demon run hospital? Or maybe you do... if so, ignore all the leather, hot men and sex. The men are a rare form of incubus demon and they're doing their best to carve out their lives in their own paranormal world. Eidolon runs a demon hospital (amazing idea!) caring for injured and sick demons and his brothers work there with him. Tayla, who is a demon-slayer is bought to the hospital after she is injured on a job. She's a good strong character and I liked her alot.Read more ›
