She never knew this demon world existed. Now she just wants to survive it.
Genevieve Drake never needed a man to come to her rescue. Not until the night of her twentieth birthday, when some dude nearly chokes her to death in an alley behind a New Orleans Goth club. And a hot stranger splits the guy in half, rips a monster from inside, and incinerates it into ash.
The hunky rescuer? Jude Delacroix—Dominus Daemonum, Master of Demons, now her guardian, whether she likes it or not. But she’s seriously beginning to like it.
Her would-be murderer turns out to be only the first of many minions of the demon prince, Danté, who has all kinds of lascivious and sadistic plans. Which means when the formidably beautiful Jude offers his protection, Genevieve has no problem accepting it.
For Jude and his fellow demon hunters tell her she is a Vessel, one who is born to serve the Light, but can be corrupted into a weapon of darkness. And to survive, she must trust a man whose unearthly eyes promise heaven…but whose powers unleash hell.
Warning: Contains a dark and brooding demon hunter who harbors even darker secrets, a snarky heroine who’s being hunted by every demon in the underworld, and a sadistic demon prince with a fancy for violent sexual encounters.
Forged in Fire by Juliette Cross
Thrust into a world of good and evil, Genevieve Drake was ill – prepared to face the creatures that will be hunting her...Demons. Little did Genevieve know she was going to become a vessel. Now she must do all she can to choose light over darkest, when the road to the light is much harder and has never been successful before. Oh, of course some have chosen light, but it always leads to their death.
Help comes in one very hot package, but Genevieve isn't sure she can trust it when he is shrouded in so much mystery.
Juliette Cross has woven a magnificent new paranormal tale. We are brought into a world that lays right beyond the normal humans perspective or should I say ability to believe true. The ultimate battle is coming and I can't wait to see what happens next.
I do know this review is a little early, I normally don't post reviews less than 1 month prior to the release date but the publisher requested feedback by September 8. This is definitely a book that should be added to paranormal | urban fantasy fans 2015 reading list.
I received this ARC copy of Forged in Fire from Samhain Publishing in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication January 27, 2015.
