Love Lisa Alder's new world.
on 13 August 2012
I downloaded the first novella in the series 'The Demons Bargain' and loved it so much that I downloaded the next two in the series. To Summon a Demon is book 2.
The world that Lisa Adler has created gets the reader thinking. What would happen if there was an earthquake and it realeased loads of Demons into a modern world where the energy they posess is so strong that it desimates all the worlds electrical systems and the world is plunged into a medieval world where there are no mobiles, no internet, and no modern comforts. Then you bring the Fae into the mix, who had banished the Demons underground many centuries before.
In this book the battle between the Demons and Fae is still raging and humans are just in the way or tools to be used.
The two main characters are a human woman called Lili and the Demon Prince Gaap. Lili was attacked by some Fae and she wants vengeance. So she performs a ceremony to summon a demon & Gaap arrives. He thinks that it is a Fae trap but cant ignore his attraction to her.
The story has just the right amount of adventure and hot steamy scenes. Lili is a wonderful character. A woman trying to survive on her own in a very frightening world. She has courage and her only skill of sewing to earn a crust. Prince Gaap has his own nightmares to deal with. Thousand of years being trapped underground has affected all the demons and Gaap is no exception.
I wont tell you all the story as it will spoil it but all I can say about these demons is that they have amazing and very talented tongues. I want one!!!
