Title: Ecstasy Unveiled
Author: Larissa Ione
Series: Demonica #4
Lore has been given the task of killing a special target otherwise his sister Sin will be killed, but if he does this he will lose the brothers he just found, and destroy the beautiful protector his target has. Now the situation seems to be destroying the Sem brothers’ relationship and destroying UGH again.
Lore was introduced in the previous book as another sibling of the Sem brothers. Sadly, he is not free to do what he wants though because he is a slave for an assassin guild. His new mission puts him between a rock and a hard place and he doesn’t know what to do about it. While he is struggling with what to do he finds himself slowly falling in love with an angel who is determined to keep him from his kill. I really liked Lore. He does what he has to to survive but he doesn’t like it. He is very protective of his sister and even though he doesn’t know them very well, that protection has extended to his brothers now.
Idess is an earthbound angel who is sworn to protect the human life Lore is after. She finds that the closer she gets to him the more she likes him, and wants to be with him. Idess has spent her life reaching for Heaven but after she meets Lore she realizes how much life has passed her by. She hasn’t been living and now she wants to experience it all with Lore, but first they have to deal with the assassin contract. Idess was a great heroine. She was deadly and had hidden abilities but also a bit sheltered because of all the restrictions placed on angels.
This was a great continuation of the overarching plot. The enemy wasn’t really a surprise but it was very interesting seeing how they did damage to the Sem brothers. There were also some new characters that were introduced in this one and I really can’t wait to see how they play into the overall story, especially Azagoth. Overall, this was a great addition and I can’t wait to read Sin’s story.
