Demon’s Fall by Karalynn Lee
Published October 25th 2010 by Carina Press (first published September 15th 2010)
She was an angel at the gates of Hell.
When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.
Knowing he must gain Jahel's trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place—retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding—he even offers to help her complete her mission.
Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse...
I have to admit one of the reasons I read this eBook was because of the cover. It’s a quite pretty cover. Another reason was because it deals with angels and demons but paints a different world outside of Heaven and Hell.
Kenan is quite sexy though I guess he has to be since he’s an incubus. His only reason for buying Jahel was so he could sleep with her and add her soul to his collection because having an angel’s soul is very rare. From the minute he brought her back to his house is was full-blown seduction. I was curious to see how Jahel would react to his charm, if she would succumb just like any other mortal woman. I would have loved to read her thought process throughout his endeavors but reading Kenan’s thoughts was awesome. Watching him growing more attached to Jahel was great. Once he gets what he wants from her she leaves. He’s torn yet thrilled but his love for her takes over and he journey’s to find her again. When he does, he proves to her that he loves her and they give up their mortality to grow old together.
Rewind: Jehel came to find the girl she was supposed to be protecting. In my opinion, the girl turned out to be Snow White. Weird right? It was very well played though and I don’t have any complaints about it. Well, except the fact that Kenan slept with the Queen (Snow White’s evil stepmother or whatever.)
Back on topic. I love this story! It has some steamy sex scenes and an awesomely sketched out world. I’m giving Demon’s Fall a 4 star rating.
