Note: this is not the first book in a series, and can therefore contain (minor) spoilers for the previous book(s) in the series. Reading of this review is at your own risk.
Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.
Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender. Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.
I put reading this book off for a really long time because I didn't want to get near the actual end of the series. The Demonica series is one of my absolute favorite series and thankfully, Ecstasy Unveiled didn't disappoint.
While I have to be honest and say that Lore is my least favorite main demon from the series so far, I really enjoyed reading his story and the way Ione set up the story for the last book. The writing is great, flowy and easy to read and I thoroughly enjoy every single story she writes, and this is no exception. The plot continues from what happened in the first three books, but it's not dragging on, nor is this book used to be able to squeeze a fifth book into the series. Yay! (although, admittedly, I wouldn't have mind another book in the series. Or two.)
The entire series reads like a charm and I absolutely love how the characters are portrayed. They are completely fleshed out and even though most of them are not human, they appear human in their behaviour. I absolutely love this series and I cannot wait to read Sin Undone!
