To make matters worse, demons are now drawn to her like flies to honey. She’s a walking, talking demon magnet. To save her own life, she must master her powers. That means embarking on a treasure hunt unlike any she’s ever conducted. Fortunately, she has the help of Were-demon and Warden of the Underworld, Roarke Fallon, along with her FireSoul sisters, Cass and Nix. As the clock ticks down, she can only hope it will be enough.
Demon Magic features kick butt heroines, a powerful hero, and otherworldly adventure.
Cass may have found love but Del has discovered something more insidious, the ability to seemingly cheat death! Now she's shadowed by Roarke, Warden of the Underworld, as more and more demons start showing up and it's vital that Del somehow gets a handle on her long-forgotten powers.
I'm really enjoying The Dragon's Gift series and must admit the burgeoning relationship between Del and the somewhat closed off Roarke works really well. Why? Well, frankly they just feel more adult and Roarke comes across as too hubba hubba for mere words! Yep, much as I enjoyed seeing Cass learn to trust Aiden, I have to admit that right from the outset this couple steamed up the page with what's clearly a smoldering passion between them. Oh, Roarke might try to keep his distance but the tension between them is palpable and it's the secrets they both hide that keeps them on their toes and clearly at arm’s length!
Del as a lead character shines. She has a sense of fun that just works but it's her quirks that set her apart. With her dragon like soul it's easy to understand her leanings but the abilities the author imbues her with here were a total surprise. This all added greatly to the adventure as Del and Roarke took in all manner of challenges. As usual, it's the attention to historical detail that elevates these stories. This time we travel from a Klondike gold rush steamboat to Cambridge in England and even as far as a slate mine in Wales! Expect creatures of legend but most of all expect a rollicking adventure that keeps you entertained until the last page!
