Review: Ecstasy Unveiled (Demonica #4) by Larissa Ione

dem 4

Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.

Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.

Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.

My Review:

Ecstasy Unveiled, the fourth installment by Larissa Ione (L.I.) of the Demonica series is Lore’s book.

We were introduced to Lore in the previous book and we know him as an assassin and half human brother to E., Wraith, and Shade. At the end of book 3, we find out that Lore’s hand not only brings death, but it can actually bring someone back to life when the cause of death is not supernatural. He used his powers on Kynan, and brought back the Aegis leader from the other side. Kynan then becomes the most important human on the planet as he is now entrusted with the amulet, Heofon, by the angel, Gethel, and is given immortality as Kynan will play a vital role in the Final Battle at the end of the world (as will all his offspring). Wow!

Everything being resolved, Lore leaves at the end of the book, and in book 4, we find out what Lore’s been up to as we see him in a steamy encounter with a demoness. After his tryst, he meets up with his master, Detharu, who reprimands him for using his gift to save someone’s life – they are assassins after all and their reputation must be upheld. Before Lore can calm his master down, Detharu gives him a new mark to assassinate – none other than the man whose life he saved – Kynan.

To make the assignment even more complex, Detharu tells Lore it will be his 100th assignment and if Lore kills Kynan, Lore will be freed from Detharu’s enslavement. But if Lore refuses or fails to kill Kynan, Lore’s sister, Sin, will pay the price.

Lore thinks that killing Kynan will be an easy feat as he is readily admitted into their inner circle and has access to Kynan since he saved his life. However, he doesn’t count on Idess, an angel who is entrusted with ensuring Kynan’s safety at all costs.

Just as Lore goes in for the kill, Idess appears and gives Lore the fight of his life. Much to Lore’s surprise, Idess is not only beautiful and one bad ass chick, she is resistant to his ‘death touch.’ Idess also has an instant reaction to Lore. Though she must kill him to ensure Kynan’s safety, she finds herself drawn to the feisty demon.

Thus begins a wonderfully crafted story packed with action, lust, and duty. Ecstasy Unveiled is one book I guarantee you won’t be able to put down and is by far my most favorite book in the Demonica Series.

What else is going on?

1. Sin. We meet Sin, Lore’s sister, and find out her gift is also one of death. With a single touch of her hand, she can unleash a debilitating disease that will kill a person in mere minutes. There is no danger to anyone else, unless the infected makes contact with other people.

2. Connal. We also meet Connal or Con, a sexy half vamp, half werewolf or Warg who works at the hospital and is friends with Luc, the paramedic werewolf. In one of my favorite hottt scenes, Luc bets Con he can’t get into Sin’s panties. I just loved how Con proves Luc wrong and how Sin reacts to it! Priceless! :)

3. Idess and Rami. We learn of Idess and her brother, Rami’s, tragic backstory. You’ll never guess how Rariel (a fallen angel who is the big bad in the book) and Rami are tied together and how hard Idess will have to fight to not only stay alive, but remain by Lore’s side.

4. The End of the World. It seems inevitable and we see how events are unfolding to bring this about and what part all the amazing characters we’ve grown to love in the series are playing.

5. Roag. This demon just won’t die! He’s still up and around, haunting his brothers in ghost form, and trying to come up with the ultimate plan of revenge. What’s even worse, Roag finds a way to stir up and infect other ghosts in his vicinity with his deep hatred and unhappiness. Objects are flying and the hospital is once again in danger of crumbling down as the angry ghosts have taken over.

6. The Plague. The unthinkable has happened, and one of Sin’s assassination jobs goes awry when her mark (a turned werewolf) comes into contact with other Wargs before he dies. A plague is unleashed and turned Werewolves are dropping like flies. It is now up to E. to find a way to reverse what Sin has done.

7. Complete Awesomeness. I just love, love, love Ecstasy Unveiled. You’ll never guess at the awesomeness that is the ending of this book as it always keeps you guessing, plus you’ll be blown away at the outcome of Lore, Sin, and their master, Detharu. And who could forget Idess? Her story had me in tears! I couldn’t have asked for a better ending or book. Do yourself a favor and if you haven’t already, start Larissa Ione’s Demonica series and read Ecstasy Unveiled. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!



{Sin} ran faster. Blindly. She had to go somewhere. Before she got there, she ran into Conall. Literally. He collided with her when he stepped out of a room that, when she peered inside, looked like a dentist's office. And sure enough, the sign on the door confirmed it. Demon dentists? Her brothers thought of everything, didn't they?

"Hey." Conall took her elbow and brought her to a halt. "You okay?"

"Stop it," she snapped. "Just stop it! I don't need their concern or yours or anyone's."

"Whoa." Conall held up his hands and stepped back. "Bite my head off."

She tried to dredge up a kernel of guilt for snapping at him, but she'd trained herself too well to feel that emotion. Well, that wasn't true. She felt it, but it mostly manifested as physical pain in her killing arm. And this guy was not worth a scar. Under any other circumstance, however, he'd be worth a healthy leer. Men in uniforms had never done it for her, but something about the way he filled out his paramedic BDUs did it for her far too well. From the black turtleneck beneath the black uniform shirt, to the well-fitting, multipocketed pants and huge combat boots, he was a solid wall of yum. Something told her he was as good at his job as he was at... everything.

"Why are you here?" she asked, not bothering to temper her irritation at all.

Conall cocked a brow. "I work here."

Well, duh. But he wasn't exactly upset to see her, as he'd been in the parking lot. "And?"

A sheepish grin lit his face, exposing sexy fangs. "And maybe I was hoping to find you."

She snarled. "I knew it. Eidolon probably asked you to keep an eye on me. Or get to know me or some shit." She jabbed him in his very muscular chest with a finger. "Well, fuck you and fuck him. And Shade. And Wraith. I don't want anything to do with you or them or this hospital, and I sure as hell don't want to get to know any of you."

"I don't want to get to know you." Conall's hand closed around hers, and an instant shock of lust sparked at the contact. "I want to fuck you."

"Oh." Oh. Well, that was more like it. Her blood heated, but at this point, that wouldn't take much. She was jonesing for sex, and the more she looked at Conall, the more antsy she became. This might just be the distraction she needed from her thoughts and fears about everything that could go wrong in an operating room. But Sin narrowed her eyes at him, because nothing around here seemed that simple. "You promise that's all you want?"

His gaze seared her as he boldly dragged it up and down her body. "I swear I want only to get into your pants."

What a relief. Finally, someone in this damned hospital who didn't want to get to know her or get into her heart or head. "Well, in that case..." She grabbed his hand and dragged him down the hall, figuring she could find a suitable room, but he yanked her to a halt outside a supply closet door.

"In here," he said, tugging her inside with him. "No one ever looks in here."

In a heartbeat he had her backed up to the wall, his mouth on hers and his thigh between her legs. His lips were soft but his kiss hard, and he tasted like brandy and exotic, dark coffee. Kissing was not her favorite act, but Conall wielded his tongue and fangs like erotic weapons that penetrated her defenses with remarkable ease.

He palmed her breast, and a moan escaped her. God, she never moaned, had always been silent in her passions. Her sexual needs controlled her, but she refused to give any of that control over to the males she slept with. Determined to take charge, she dropped her hand to Conall's fly and cupped his erection. Oh, my. This was going to be good.
