"Sin Undone" by Larissa Ione


SERIES: Demonica #5
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnely is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: she creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence. Half werewolf, half vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: he's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungrier for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her... and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.


Eidolon, Shade, Wraith, Lore, which brother didn't give you shivers and made you dream all along? And Sin is no less than her brothers. She's an awesome heroine with a sad background that undoubtedly made her the kick-ass woman (assassin) she is, but it definitely has broken something inside her that might emerge with a certain half-werewolf/half vampire around... And trust me, Con is a revelation as much powerful as his interaction with Sin...

Despite the fact that I started the spin-off, Lords of Deliverance, before I finished Demonica, I  was surprisingly amazed by reading the link between the two series. Not that it didn't make sense without picking up this instalment, but actually assisting at how everything started and discovering who may previously had a 'connection' with whom (cough-cough) well, it was rewarding and definitely winning.

I'm glad I still get to see those wonderful characters from time to time and how their lives keep developing, it would have been too difficult to bid the last farewell to Demonica because it's anything but something you want to say goodbye to. Anyway, "Sin Undone" was an amazing closure of a series is not just a favourite of mine, but it's what I'd define one of the best paranormal romance series ever!

RATING: 4.5/5
