4 stars – It was really good

Tavin has been a background character in this series since Sin and Lore were introduced. He was a member of their assassin’s guild and had a pretty rough time there. Now that he is free of that contract, he is working at Underworld General trying to do some good to repay all the death he inflicted. Unfortunately, his victims have been reincarnated and are out for revenge, including the love of his life. 

Tavin and Deja’s story was really good. I love a good second chance story and this one was very emotional. Tavin was forced to kill Deja when he was an assassin and has spent his life living with that pain. Deja has spent the past two years since she was reincarnated setting up her plan to kill him. As you can imagine though, the feelings are still there even with all the pain Deja went through and she finds herself falling for him again. 

Deja was a smart, determined, and sometimes ruthless woman. Her struggle to deal with her love and hate of Tavin was very well written. I was afraid she would forgive him quickly but she takes her time working through her feelings. Also, the accidental mating probably helped with that since they can feel each other’s emotions and she can feel Tavins pain. Tavin was another great Sem demon. He may have been an assassin but he really prefers to help people. I was glad to see him find happiness and get some closure on his viper marking situation.

Overall, this was a great addition to the Demonica series. Tavin and Deja were a great couple and I really enjoyed seeing them heal each other. Also, I really loved all the cameos from previous couples and seeing how much has changed since Azagoth’s book.
