Ecstasy Unveiled

ecstacy-unveiled_200_thumb 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.

It amazes me that all of my favorite books and authors fall under the fantasy genre but they are all so different in their writing style.  Larissa Ione writes in a very dark, very sensual tone and it’s incredible. 

Yes, Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon, do you know what that means? To keep this family friendly, like my blog is, I’ll just say, he’s a succubus. He has to release himself a few times throughout the day or he flies off in rages.

Idess wants nothing more than to protect her Primori (those she must safeguard) so that she can ascend to heaven.  As she is trying to protect Kynan, she is thrown a juicy little twist in her mission that I didn’t see coming.  I’d share with you, but you don’t want to know the whole story do you?  You want to read it yourself.

Throw in Lore’s 3 brothers, all who will do anything to protect Kynan and only 1 who is willing to protect Lore.  Eidolon is taking a great risk of causing a huge family rift between himself and his brothers Wraith and Shade.  It could destroy the family.

Throw in Lore’s twin sister, Sin, who the brothers didn’t know existed, the twisted evil assassin task master, Detharu, and a pandemic of a disease that only attacks the were population and you have on wild rollar coaster of a book.

One thing I noticed and applauded in the scenes that are, shall we say, romantic in nature that Larissa comes up with so many ways to describe actions.  After reading quite a few books in different series, I notice that authors at times tend to use the same descriptive words over and over again when it comes to love scenes, screamed being one that pops through my head.  I did not see much repetition.  I’ve been known to skip through the loves scenes in some of my favorite series because they are the same thing over and over again.  The rest of the story is different, there just needs to be some mixing it up of the adverbs and adjectives.  Larissa did not have that problem in this book. 

Another highly recommended book!  If you haven’t read it, check out my giveaway for it here.

    I totally agree with you about the way Larissa is able to describe her scenes. She keeps it interesting and doesn’t lose the story during the love scenes.
