Nadira Holden wants is to preserve the last of her soul and create a new life free of magic, demons, and war.
Her involuntary bond with a succubus makes her desires impossible. The threat of this disgruntled demon possessing her urges Nadira to find the succubus’s missing body.
Nadira’s only hope of avoiding demonic possession lays with Derek, the only demon she can tolerate without slaying. Except, his hands are full trying to secure his recently-inherited title of prince. Desperate, Nadira agrees to help Derek secure his title by experimenting with the deadly magic they once generated in exchange for his aid in her investigation.
To untangle herself from the evil that surrounds her, Nadira must be willing to betray her friends and get cozy with her enemies. She may even have to do the unthinkable: break the peace treaty that allows demons and humans to coexist. If she can’t toss aside her virtue, Nadira may not make it out of this ordeal with her soul intact.
This story kept me captivated from beginning to end. The writing style was superb and the story line felt original and unique. The characters were also believable and had their own distinct voices. One of my absolutely favorite things in a story is well-developed character and this story definitely delivered!
The world-building was rich and unique, full of dark, yet believable themes. Nadira was an absolute delight to follow through this world. Strong-willed and reliable the entire time. When she was upset, I was upset. When she was tempered and snarky, I was grinning.
My husband, who doesn’t read, had to sit through a very thorough summary of the entire book. And at the end, even he was interested in the story line and curious about the next book. Anyone considering this book should stop and try it out already.
“I love this book! In an industry and genre that is notoriously whitewashed, it’s refreshing to read a book centered around a POC character (and not one that is painfully stereotypical).” ―A Goodreads Book Reviewer, ★★★★★
