Series: Demonica #18; Demonica Underworld #8
After two books, we finally get Cipher’s story. In Her Guardian Angel, Cipher was dragged to Hell by demons and turned into a fallen angel. It’s been months since that event and now we finally get to learn why he was taken and by whom.
Cipher has been a prisoner for months dealing with daily tortures and the constant seep of evil into him. His captures are trying to turn him to their cause or get information about Azagoth from him. I have liked Cipher since he was introduced and I loved him even more after this. He was strong, determined, and very stubborn. He doesn’t give in and bends the situation in his favor to free himself. Also Cipher’s new fallen abilities are fascinating and I can’t wait to see how he applies them in future books.
Lyre is a fallen angel who is out for revenge. While overseeing Cipher’s captivity, she finds herself doubting everything about her goal for revenge. The more time she spends with Cipher the more she finds herself longing for more. Lyre was a strong, capable, and determined woman. She may have a weak power but wields it to her advantage, which I really liked. Lyre and Cipher were a great couple who worked together to escape a terrible situation.
Overall, this was another great novella for this series. I can’t wait to jump into the next one and see the continuation of Azagoth and Lilianna’s story.
