Synopsis:

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I thought I had been living it all these years on Earth- abandoned, forgotten, and left with a dangerous secret that not only ade the Se7en’s #1 target but also turned me into a deadly weapon, a threat to every human in my path.
I was wrong.

In order to survive Lucifer’s plans for me, and his unquenchable thirst for more power, I have to surrender my humanity. I have to lose a part of myself in order to find my way back to him. Back to the demon who save me, only to break me. Back to Legion

But even supreme¬†evil has its limits, and the real foes never show their devastatingly beautiful faces. Forget fire and brimstone. They aren’t shit compared to what’s coming.

Centuries=old bonds will be broken. Unlikely alliances will be forged. And innocent blood will be spilled. Blodd that will stain my hands for the rest of my mortal days.

I thought I knew what hell was like.
I was wrong.
Hell is coming.
Hell is just the beginning.

First book: Born Sinner
Next book: Wicked Ruin

Review:

And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Wow. This one was something I did not expect. Eden has taken Lucifer’s hand and is now in hell. There she meets Niko. Niko is going to help her get through hell. Eden has much to face going up against the devil at his own game.

Beauty is a distraction-a diversion-from the ugliness pulsing within these walls.

I like that even though Eden goes through challenges she never gets rid of her sense of humor.

No offense to Ben- he’s nice. Which is exactly the problem. I don’t do nice. Or easy. Or comfortable. Probably explains my current predicament, but at least I’m consistent.

“Excuse me, but- Johnny baby, is it?-yeah, I know that steroids can shrink your balls, but I wasn’t aware that they actually turned people into dicks. Quick, Snookie Barbie! Stuff him in your mouth before the little fella gets away!”

At first I wasn’t sure I was going to make through some parts of the book. I actually got queasy but I understand what the author did. I mean it is the devil she is writing about so she had to go to an extreme.

While Eden gets preached to she knows how to keep it real. This is what I like about her. She doesn’t hid the ugly truth when it comes down to hit.

Crime in Chicago is out of control. And that’s not the work of seven rogue demons. Humans destroyed this city. Humans are fighting and killing and hurting each other every day all over the world. Maybe it’s time we take ownership of that.

L… What can I say about L but he is an alpha demon that I liked and trying not to love but It’s hard.

Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “For we are many.”

He is power. He is pain. He. Is. Legion. And after centuries of slumber, the beast has just been awakened.

This man is ready to get his love back even if it means battling Lucifer. While a bigger opponent is revealed at the end that is more dangerous than Lucifer I can’t help but fall in love with L.

On to the next book. Wonder if it will be the final one or if there is more to this series.
