Ecstasy Unveiled

by Larissa Ione

(paranormal romance)

This is the fourth book in a really awesome series. (And I would highly recommend reading the whole series from the top rather than jumping in part-way through.) They are set in a world where demons and werewolves (wargs) and vampires and angels (fallen and otherwise) all co-exist with humans. The main characters are all siblings who work in a demon hospital.

Hmmm… how to describe the awesomeness that is Lore’s book without spoilers… It’s definitely a romance, with some good steamy scenes and a little light bondage (nothing approaching BDSM). It’s also got great character development and a plot that manages to advance both the series and the individual book seamlessly.

This might be my favorite of the Demonica books. It’s hard to say. They’re all so good, and yet different. I particularly like the heroine in this book (Idess). As with many romance novels, the heroine is the one abstaining from sex while the hero tries to get her in bed. Idess’ reasons, however, are more believable than most. And when she gives in (no spoilers here – this is a romance, after all) it’s just as believable.

Ione has crafted a very realistic (if you accept the demons and all) world here, and I can’t wait for the next book. Sin Undone looks to be a great addition to the series.

Grade: A
