Desire Unchained (Demonica Series #2)

Desire Unchained - Larissa Ione In the second instalment of the Demonica series, Desire Unchained, the focus is on Shade. Shade is a tormented soul, cursed to fade away should he ever fall in love. Shade’s back story is full of guilt. Guilt that he was responsible for the deaths of his sisters because he left their nest unattended. This guilt is further exacerbated when his last remaining sister dies.Shade falls in love, and in doing so, activates the curse that will cause him to fade away. I loved Runa’s character. I found her to be the perfect match for Shade. Like Shade, Runa also had her own personal torments. I absolutely love this series. I find the world so original. Who knew that demons could have their own society, their own transportation system, and their own hospitals? The brotherly love between Shade, Eidolon, and Wraith is special. They care for each other, they work together, and they protect each other – though not always perfectly. I found Shade’s “man cave” in Costa Rica absolutely awesome. A great kitchen, complete with all the modern appliances, a waterfall for a shower, a media room well supplied with DVDs, and a (ahem) playroom. The perfect getaway for a tormented demon. The secondary story line about Kynan and Gem was also well done. And the evil one that shall not be named was so deliciously wicked. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series – it’s just that much fun!
