When Emilia’s twin sister is brutally murdered she is devastated. She swears a blood oath to stop the killer at any cost, including using dark magic to summon a demon. Unfortunately, it’s not just any demon she summons but one of the princes of hell, Wrath.
This book was just ok for me. I had problems with the pacing of this book. First it took me a while to get into the story and I never really loved either characters. They just didn’t really work for me. I found Emilia to be boring and at points annoying with her negativity towards demons. I also had problems with the pacing in the middle of the book. It felt like it was constant start/stop between the action and then normal scenes that it was slightly jarring at points.
This world with witches and demons to be quite fascinating. I loved the idea of six demon princes all with the control of different sins. While I do wonder how the prophecy will play out I don’t know if I will actually read the next book. For me, I need to like the characters to want to continue a series but I didn’t really love Emilia or Wrath. I will make my decision when book two comes out.
