Review - Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione
Title: Desire Unchained
Author: Larissa Ione
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Buy Link: Desire Unchained: A Demonica Novel (The Demonica Series)
Rating: You Gotta to Read
Reviewed by: Mickey
While Desire Unchained is the second book in Larissa Ione’s Demonica series it can and does stand alone without having to read Pleasure Unbound first. In the current book, Shade’s story unfolds, and it is a wild nonstop ride full of humans and demons, both good and evil trying to co-exist in their little piece of the world without being killed by each other in the process. Like his brothers, Shade is also a Seminus demon however; unlike his brothers he has a little love curse threatening him as he approaches his transition. To his surprise (and dismay) who walks back into his life but Runa Wagner, the human he “dated” months before who now has her own issues to contend with – did I mention that she is now a werewolf? Did I also forget to mention that Runa and Shade have a common enemy intent on eliminating them both, along with Shade’s brothers? Added to these small problems, the “former” lovers are having an awfully hard time keeping their hands off each other – trials and tribulations abound.
Desire Unchained is full of surprises and so is Ms. Ione. I completely enjoyed the first Demonica book, and foolishly believing the series could not get any better I was pleasantly surprised to find myself wrong when I finished Desire Unchained. The dialogue just flowed, managing to be hip and poetic at the same time, yet easy to read and understand. There are more than enough love scenes to satisfy even the most diehard erotica fan, yet they are not excessively graphic or over the top, somehow managing to stay by turns romantic and others sensuous. I just love a book that is hard to put down, forcing the reader to frantically turn page after page just to reach the end. How much action, excitement, thrills and chills can a reader take? As much as Ms. Ione wants to deliver apparently….
