I read book 1 in the series a cpl years back, really enjoyed it, but for some reason, did not carry on with the series.

I loved Lucien and Anya and the tension between them. I was just waiting and waiting for Lucien to finally break!

It is a great addition to the series. Lucien is bonded with the Demon of Death and is covered in scars. He sees Anya as beautiful and cannot understand why or if she really is attracted to him. As such, he pushes her away or can be cruel at times as he suspects she is playing with him.

And Anya, just could not stay away from Lucien, despite the fact he has been ordered to kill her. She is such a strong heroine and more than holds her own.

Overall I really enjoyed it, but because there are so many secondary characters, all being set up for their own book, I felt like i did not really get to spend as much time with the main couple as I would have wanted to. (while at the same time feeling like the previous couple were barely mentioned or used as anything more than background props, as possibly their story had been told, so we can forget about them?)

However, I did enjoy them, and will certainly carry on with the series and not leave it so long next time.
