My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Can’t believe this is the 15th book in the series already, and Ms Cole still have me enthralled by her kick-ass, frequently irreverently funny and modern heroines.
This time round the hero, Thronos, is the inexperienced one, while Lanthe, the sorceress whom we met in Kiss of a Demon King has not exactly been a nun while evading his at-first ardent, then semi-vengeful pursuit. The little background snippet of the two protagonists in their childhood was a sweet beginning which sets the scene for their embittered, star-crossed love affair.
Fast forward to the present day when the pair broke out of The Order prison, circumstances led them to embark on an Odyssey to Pandemonia, where they got to know each other, work through some of their relationship issues. While it was a bit of a let-down that the source of their conflict is actually a big-MIS, the pair of childhood sweetheart eventually get their happy-ever-after.
Throughout their adventure to hell, while they caught up on each other, Lanthe’s pop culture references often throw Thronos into adorable confusion. Those were some entertaining moments in the story.
Overall, a very enjoyable read.
