Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.
Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she’s also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon’s Most Wanted List.
And no one wants her more than Keegan’s father.
Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he’ll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics—the far deadlier, uncontrollable half—when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he’ll never be able to resist.
Brynn Meyers owned a small art gallery in New York. When an attractive man approaches her in her shop just before closing, she doesn’t think anything of it, until he hauls off and cold cocks her in the jaw. Keegan works as a Detainor for the Council, a group made up of beings from other dimensions that oversee the use of portals and dimensional welfare. Along with his younger brothers Taeg, Ronin and Dagan, they have been sent to Earth to find Brynn, who is the unknowing key to the apocalypse. If they can’t stop events from occurring then their job will also include terminating Brynn.
Perfect, perfect, perfect. The only thing I didn’t love about this book is that it ended. It was kind of like that movie The Mummy, but 100 times better, and in present time, oh, and Brendan Fraser has three super hot brothers, who just happen to be halfbreed demons with superpowers. Well, I guess it is different, but some of it does happen in Egypt and there is a Book of the Dead. Still the important thing to remember is four hunky demon brothers with powers. Right? The writing was seamless, there were no downtimes or lags in the story. The dialogue and characters were spot on terrific. Brynn was an impressive heroine, who even when she seemed down for the count came up swinging and never once played the whimpering miss. She acted intelligently and made her own decisions, and even saved the hero. I LOVE THAT!! The demons in Blood of the Demon are not the evil, satanic creatures most often associated with the term. They are both good and evil, as are humans. Plus, did I mention they were hot? They even have hot, demon friends.
Not only is this a great story, but it’s a very sexy story. It is by no means erotica, but it does have some smoking scenes, Sometimes authors have a hard time combining the two elements, Ms. Lario has an extreme gift. This could possibly become one of my all time favorite series. The promise is there, I just pray it bears fruit. If the next book lives up to Blood of the Demon, I will be an incredibly happy reader. Brava and job well done.
