I loved that this was a continuation of the short she had in Fairytale Confessions. Mostly this was because I fell in love with our mains, during that short, and wanted to know what happened next. She carried on, right where we were left, giving us answers to the questions we were all left asking ourselves. However, we soon realised we had so many more to answer. That is what I love about her reads, and this on in particular. You are always guessing and wondering both what will happen next and just what everything you have already read means. I often am able to guess who a character is, how they affect the storyline and more, with other books, but Pepper's reads are never that case. Just when I think I know, BAM, she lets loose a cannon of surprise. I love that about her and this book specifically.
I really like the storyline. I felt that it was a great blend of the passion and romance between the main characters and the evil that our leading lady what having to battle within herself. There was turmoil and, of course, threatened safety. I felt that the story really flowed. It had lots of little details, to fill in between the major events, which really created a full story.
The pace was excellent. It went from a faster, threatening pace to the slow, but heated pace of the love between the characters. The added speed, in parts where our leading lady was trying to figure out just who she was and how she was going to deal with that, really gave us great undertones of haste.Read more ›
Declan Stilts is a 348 Year old Demon, among the human he is a millionaire playboy with anger issues. Amongst the paranormal world he is a psychopath with life threatening rages and an ability to such the essence out of his victims.
The book opens with a ghastly scene in a suite at the Bellagio hotel. Two dead and a third dying, Declan holds the women he loves in his arms, watching her die, her last whispered words see him stabbing her in the heart with an ancient knife. Laced with the Incubus Curse Declan rescues Piper from one dreadful life and plunges her into another.
Now an Immortal demon, Piper hungers for the essence created by envy from humans, she can literally suck the life from a victim, aging them beyond their years, if not killing them. She struggles between her delight at the chance to spend all eternity with Declan and her horror and guilt about what she can inflict on humans.
An old adversary of Declan's returns, a witch called Gepetta. Declan hides Piper amongst the lower Saxony coven of witches while he tries to cover-up recent events, but danger is close and he hasn't considered Piper's human feelings might hamper their future together.
Sarah Pepper writes dark, twisted paranormal romance with fairy tale elements meant to chill. This is a good start to a new series, and I expect several of the minor storylines will play out in the next books.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
Its been a while since I have read a paranormal romance , let alone one that is a dark twisted fairy tale of love that's raw and unconventional.
My initial interest was piqued after reading the blurb and I couldn't wait to get started on Declan and Pipers story. I thought this was the first book, however unbeknownst to me there was a prequel prior to Soulless so it might be worth reading that first to get an in-depth background on the character's and plot.
Overall it was an ok read as my 3.5 rating reflects this. There were parts of the plot I enjoyed and parts that unfortunately I didn't as, some parts dragged for me, which I think is due to the lack of background. I struggled to connect to the character's and at times I was frustrated with certain character traits that they portrayed. I did enjoy the narrative being told in various POV's.
I would recommend to readers who enjoy an unconventional paranormal romance.
** Arc received from the author in exchange for an honest review for Words Turn Me On Book Blog - Vickie **
Another thing that was really thrilling about this story was Pepper’s reimagining of other fairy tale characters, with the likes of Gepetta, Ula, and Hans and El – not to mention the creepy, Opie. I loved how they were all linked, with Pepper breathing new life into their stories, while still staying true to their origins.
Piper and Declan’s romance was filled with crater-sized chasms that often tried to derail them and force them apart. With some many people out to get Declan, wanting to use Piper to hurt him, and his need to shield her from the life he’d forced on her, things were not going to be easy for them.
When Gepetta’s plan to destroy Declan’s happiness came to fruition, I truly believed he’d lost Piper for good, and with the ending, I’m not sure if I’ll be proven wrong. I do hope so. I cannot wait to continue on this journey with the most likable pair of demons I’ve ever come to know.
