What would you give for a second chance? Astrid, a witch, has often wondered what would happen if her lover, Fallon, a teleport demon, came back to her. After a year apart it seems fate will bring them together once more, and their relationship is going to be tested with a new threat to their lives and the lives of their friends. A reckoning is coming, and its time to choose sides. When the exiled demon prince Cassiel gives Astrid an offer she can't refuse, will her relationship with Fallon pay the price?
This was an interesting book and ultimately I did enjoy it, however it wasn't all plain sailing- then again I am loaded with cold and my mind keeps wandering into lemsip induced fuzziness. I have said before that I like the work of the Price sisters, with the Weresnake books and Crimson and Collars I found something new and intriguing not to mention sexy; the Dragon books were sexy and romantic and I was looking forward to reading Sugar and Sin.
I liked the characters, Cash and Feyd in particular, Fallon is the strong silent type with a disturbed past, Feyd is the joker with the smart mouth (he calls his ladies Minx, what is not to like!) Cash is the insanely sexy exiled Prince; I liked the concept and how it is part one of a wider story arc, one which includes lost and found love, assassination, betrayal, insane demons, secrets, sex and the search for power. Astrid and Ash were fun, but I did sometimes mix them up, my lemsip stewed brain not able to cope with working out who was who. I did figure it out, honest I did, but I found I had to concentrate on the book in parts, in other parts I didn't want to put it down.
As I said, this is a bit of an odd review ,odd but good, I liked the characters and the plot, yes I had to concentrate but ultimately liked it and have started on book 2: Silk and Steel already.
(Snow is scary)
Ultimately a good introduction to the demon books: complicated plot in places with lots if twists and turns (I want to know what Cole did to Cash, how did she betray him.... will he ever become king! Dun dun duunnn) I saw this as a beginning book and new beginnings are often hard! (Yes there is plenty of that in this book! =D) So yip, lets talk analogies, this book is stage one in a marathon race and some of it is up hill, the competitors are sexy and have LOTS of stamina, the route contains lots of twists and turns, but when you finish stage 1 you will be running to stage 2. Mmmmmmmm Arcady Morisson!
I give it 3 pink panties out of 5.
