Well, I was dead wrong. I said it. I ended up loving Wraith. And I have no regrets. Wraith is one of those heroes who snuck up on me. I think it was the sign of the high caliber of Ms. Wraith is very in-your-face with his often unlikeable, selfish nature. But Ms. Ione employed a careful subtlety in crafting his story.
I went into it thinking that he was callous and uncaring. But I came to realize that he had a massive defense mechanism going on. There are few people that have the power to make or break another person. And parents are at the top of the list. His mother treated him like he was an abomination. But to treat a child the way she did was just plain wrong. He cared about his brothers, and killing vampires. Not much else, after that.
Sex was important because a Seminus demon will die without it. It was something that he did to stay alive. To him, seducing females was a biological imperative. Because of the tortures his mother afflicted on him, Wraith stays far away from human females. But, he has no choice.
When Wraith and Serena meet, I could feel the chemistry, but Wraith is still in callous mode. I was still unconvinced of him as hero I could fall for. And as I saw how tender his heart was, buried under many layers of scar tissue, I was seduced into softening my own heart to him. How he gave her pleasure without consummation, which contributed to his own agony.
That was the mark of selfless love. By the end of this book, I was deeply in love with Wraith. I liked her passion and her spirit. And her good heart.
She was just the woman for Wraith. Ione has this reader impressed. Her world is so rich and fascinating. The way she took this concept to the next level by incorporating fallen angels, one who longs to return to Heaven, and another who strives to bring Hell to Heaven and to rule over earth as a god. What a marked, fascinating conrast. The complexity of the demon species, and their interactions with each other.
How very different they all are. In my mind, a demon is a demon. Not so in this series. In some ways this series has an intense, horrific vibe to it. I am a fan or horror, after all. And the action sequences were excellent, with smaller skirmishes and smack-downs, and full on epic battles. The characters get hurt, and sometimes mortally.
The cost is higher than you can even imagine. The tension in this book is sustained, as you wonder how things will work out. In this dicey situation, success can only occur at the expense of someone else.
Who will live? Who will die? A sacrifice has to be made. But at the same time, I came out of this book very satisfied. I was kept guessing what would happen, in a state of delightful suspense, as this book unfolds.
I was completely entertained with the beautiful romance, fiery passion, the family dynamics, the incredibly interesting world-building and lore-spinning, and the grand adventure of it all. This was just a great book all-around.
