"A demon love story where being bad never felt so sinfully good, and one wrong move could be fatal"
For more than twenty years half demon-half Navajo, Fatal
has lived among her grandfather's people as an outsider.
Now outcast the demons have come a-calling, wanting to
bring her back to the family who once abandoned her; but
Fatal isn't going without a fight. Orobus is determined to
tame the half demon beauty, especially when he discovers
she is his long lost betrothed. Only there are forces at
work who want to use Fatal as a pawn in their own bid for
power in DEMONIC PERSUASION.
In DEMONIC PERSUASION all of the characters from the main
characters to the villains were well thought out and
believable. Each have a voice of their own and stay true
to that voice. I especially liked Azazel and his
unyielding badness. I loved that Fatal fought tooth and
nail against the situation she found herself in and only a
major disaster broke down the last of her barriers—
something not even a hellhound puppy could do. I really
loved the whole demons are the "good" guys thing but they
really weren't all "bubble gum and ice cream".
The biggest weakness was the shifting back story. First
Fatal doesn't have any contact with the demon side of her
family, then her father was able to visit her, then she had
a demon mentor. Any of which would have been fine, but it
jerks the reader's attention especially when her mentor
shows up for the first time. As an integral part of not
only Fatal's demonic life but the story, she should have
been introduced long before the middle of the story.
For anyone looking for a good bad boy (or girl)
story DEMONIC PERSUASION is the perfect one for your
library. The relationships are believable (including the
one between him and her) and build gradually as the story
itself builds. The characters are strong and gloriously
unrepentant. I would love for this series to continue and
read about Fatal's brother's story as well as her parent's,
and I look forward to whatever else this author has in mind
for this world and all of its other occupants.
