Welcome to today’s stop on the Review & Excerpt Tour for Hades by Larissa Ione!
The Demonica series is one of my top favorite PNR series ever! I know that every time I pick up a Larissa Ione book, I’m going to enjoy myself. And Hades absolutely didn’t let me down. I loved being back in the Demonica world, and I had so much fun reading the Jailor of the Underworld’s story. Infused with the perfect amount of humor, action, intensity, and sexiness, Hades is a must read for fans of Larissa Ione!
Cataclysm, a fallen angel booted out of Heaven, is working for Azagoth in the Underworld. She’s trying to get back into Heaven’s good graces, but in the meantime, she’s found a good place for herself in Azagoth’s realm. Cat also has a crush on a certain Jailor of the Underworld, He doesn’t seem to notice her, but when she accidentally starts a riot in his prison, she gets his attention – as well as the attention of some evil creatures. I adored Cat’s character. She’s so heartfelt and genuine, and her awkwardness and clumsiness made her that much more endearing. I thought that she was a perfect match to Hades.
I’d been curious about Hades ever since he first appeared in the series, so I was so happy to know that he would be getting his own story. I really liked Hades’s character – he’s such a flippant person, but he’s got a hidden depth to him that no one sees except Cat. He’s lived thousands of years in loneliness, but the moment he lays eyes on Cat, things start to change for him… excerpt Azagoth has forbidden him to have anything to do with her.
“I want you, Cat. I want you more than I’ve wanted anything since I fell.”
But some things are worth the Grim Reaper’s wrath, right? As Hades fights the rioters to gain back control over his domain, he can’t get Cat out of his mind. He tries to resist temptation (I loved seeing Cat try to seduce Hades), but he soon comes to realize that Cat is the best thing to ever happen to him. And holy wow, Hades and Cat together are HOT!
“Thousands of years of loneliness was worth every second you’ve been in my life.”
I wish there was a bit more romance – I’m such a sap for love, and Hades and Cat were so perfect together. I wish they had a longer book! Still, Hades was a highly entertaining read – once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. It’s a short, sexy, sweet novel that paranormal fans and fans of the author shouldn’t miss!
