Larissa Ione - Ecstasy Unveiled

Lore is a half-breed Seminus demon and the half brother of Eidolon, Shade and Wraith. And like any Seminus demon he has a gift or in Lore cases a curse, because he can kill by touching any kind of creature with his right hand. Lore is also an assassin for Demon master “Deth”; he has to fulfil his slave contract to be free. His last assignment was to kill his half brothers, but he couldn’t do that, so now he as to pay for his failure. Deth gives him a new assignment; he has to assassinate a close friend of his half brothers.

Idess is an angel in waiting and is eager to fulfil her last assignment and go to the place she wants to be. She’s a guardian and has to keep her charges safe until they fulfil their destiny in life. If Idess cannot keep her charges safe, then her time on Earth will be extended but she’s an Ancient and hasn’t lost a charge yet. But she is in for a ride when her last charge is also Lore’s last target and both want to succeed their job to be free.

Ecstasy Unveiled by Larissa Ione is the fourth novel in her Demonica series and just like the previous novels this one is another fabulous instalment.

We’ve met Lore in Passion Unleashed when his job was to kill his own half brothers and I have to say I was pretty curious about his background and why he never contacted his brothers in the first place. Well Lore didn’t disappointed me, he is a strong Seminus half demon and not so different from his half brothers.

Idess is the perfect match for him; she is completely the opposite with her Angelic gifts. At first they are enemies, but when Lore discovers Iddess is immune to his curse/gift, he sees her through different eyes. When Idess learns why Lore is so desperate to fulfil his assignment, she will do anything in her power to keep her charge safe and help Lore with his problems.

We also meet Lore’s twin sister Sin, who also has an unusual gift/curse. She’s able to create a disease or plague and touch anyone to pass that on. Sin also has a razor sharp tongue and isn’t afraid to use it. You could say she’s a female version of her half brother Wraith.

Of course we see a lot of Eidolon, Shade, Wraith and their heroines, their lives are all connected and they all need each other in order to fight their enemies. Eidolon is the eldest of the brothers and sister; and you can sense that because he’s desperately trying to bring the whole family together, even though the twins don’t want anything to do with them…well not in the beginning.

I’m looking forward to read the last novel in this series, Sin is an interesting character and the only female Seminus demon and I know her hero must be someone strong in order to tame her.

This series is on my TBR for a while, but I never got around to reading it. Your review makes me think I will like them, so perhaps next year ...

Oh girl you should really put this series higher on your TBR pile, because you won't regret it. The series is awesome and the author is already writing a spin-off on this series....cannot wait.
