Rising star Ione is back and ready to torture her demon brother heroes once again in this latest Demonica novel. Ione has a true gift for imbuing her characters with dark-edged passion and also exploring their torments of emotional trauma. When you add in thrilling action and treacherous vengeance, you get a top-notch read.

Seminus demon Shade has
a dark threat hanging over him: If he should ever mate bond, he will trigger a curse that will destroy him. Shade isn't worried -- until he runs into his former human lover Runa.

Runa is out for vengeance. After learning Shade was demon, she was attacked by a werewolf. But their personal battle will have to wait, for they've been kidnapped by the twisted and evil Roag. Shade thought his completely insane brother was dead. Finding out he isn't is a horrible shock, and stopping Roag before he destroys them all won't be easy. (FOREVER, Mar., 400 pp., $6.99)

When Seminus Demon Shade wakes up chained in a dungeon, he doesn't know how he got there or who is behind his kidnapping. He also doesn't know why his ex-girlfriend, Runa Wagner, is locked up with him. Runa hates Shade, blaming him for their breakup and for the attack that changed her life. Now an enemy from Shade's past wants revenge against him and his brothers. After watching Shade endure hours of torture at his enemy's hands, Runa will do anything she can to help him survive. But Runa is just as dangerous to Shade who must keep his distance from Runa or endure a life of hell because of an ancient curse.

Wow, this story has everything...an interesting plot, a scary villain, great romance and hot sex. On top of that there is humor, appealing characters, and compelling secondary romance. I liked Shade when he was introduced in the first book. Runa is a perfect mate for him. I also loved the Underground General Hospital setting which is so unique for a paranormal series. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. My rating: 5 Stars.
