When darkness threatens...only love will bring them light.

The half-siren half-demon bounty hunter Dagan Meyers swore he'd never settle down. His older brothers might’ve adjusted well to family life but tying himself to one woman is so not Dagan’s bag. Until he meets the gorgeous angel Lina, his brother Ronin’s long-lost adopted sister, and he can’t think of being with anybody but her. Too bad Ronin’s well aware of Dagan’s party-boy lifestyle and won’t let him anywhere near his angelic baby sister.

Lina is still getting over the abandonment issues that began when she was orphaned as a child and has devoted her life to taking down evil Otherworlders. The last thing she wants is to develop feelings for man she knows will eventually leave her, too. But as the battle against a growing darkness continues—a powerful fae who’s harnessed untold power—Dagan and Lina find that love may be their greatest weapon against the very thing that threatens to destroy them all.

Do you have any idea the number of books I have in my TBR pile that are the end of one of my beloved series? They have a tendency to languish there because if I don’t read them, then series never ends. Irrational I know, but then I am a bit odd. I have been waiting for Dagan’s book for YEARS!!! We even had a brief moment during an interview once. Dagan is my DUDE!!! And I love these demons, but , but , BUT…….  THIS IS THE END! Arggggggghh!!


I know I have a habit of having a lighthearted sometimes sarcastic tone in reviews, but this review is actually painful to write. When I commit to a series, it becomes like a member of my family, when it ends, ugh….. it is very hard. So while I desperately wanted Dagan to have his well deserved HEA, I dreaded the end of his book like an audit notice from the IRS.

For some reason Dagan always felt less worthy than his half-brothers.  Of course with Mammon as a father all the boys had self- esteem issues. Dagan is half siren, so women flocked to him. It also didn't hurt that he was gorgeous. His brother's loved Dagan and wanted him to be happy, buuuuuut Ronin did NOT want Dagan anywhere near his adopted sister. So, of course the one woman in the entire universe meant for Dagan is Lina.

In between the family issues, there are schemes to overthrow the Council in Infernum. The boys have been recalled from the human realm and are now on the run. This is truly a story worthy of Dagan. All questions are answered and there is a new possibility. A surprise! A very special surprise that offers fans of this series hope. I don't want to jinx it, but there is a flicker.

We get to really know Lina and her story in this book. She is an angel, but has not led a divine life. Her past is really dark and painful. It rears it's ugly head to destroy the existence she has worked so hard to achieve. It dovetails perfectly into this sweeping tale that will stay with me for a very long time. I want to think Rosalie for her creation and for the many, many hours of utter delight that these demons brought into my life. Superb job, bravissima!

Rosalie Lario is the award-winning, paranormal romance author of the Demons of Infernum and the Fallen Warriors series. Rosalie double majored in Anthropology and Classics as an undergraduate student, and briefly considered becoming an archaeologist before realizing they don’t actually live the life of Indiana Jones. So what was a classical geek armed with a lot of useless knowledge to do? Become a lawyer, of course!

After attending law school in Florida, she practiced real estate law for several years before finally admitting to herself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. She never imagined all the mythology she’d learned throughout her undergraduate education might actually come in handy, but it makes perfect fodder for the paranormal romance stories she now dreams up.

When not writing, you can find her on a boat somewhere along South Florida’s waterways, chasing down a rainbow or pretending to be a pirate.
