Azagoth is known as the Grim Reaper. He rules over Sheoul-gra, an underworld realm that houses demonic souls. Azagoth wants nothing more than to live with his angelic wife and unborn child. When Lilliana’s life is threatened, he has no other choice than to send her someplace safe. However, Azagoth’s plan fails when she falls into his enemy’s hands. He will risk Heaven and Hell’s wrath to rescue her and their child. Can Azagoth save his mate without starting the End of Days? Or will he commit the ultimate sacrifice?
Lilliana is an angel with the rare ability to travel in time and space. She eagerly anticipates the birth of her first child. When she experiences complications, Lilliana knows she must leave Sheoul-gra and her mate to save their baby. She never anticipated Azagoth’s enemy to swoop in and kidnap her. Lilliana believes that Azagoth will come to her rescue. Can Lilliana endure her sadistic captor’s cruelties? Or will she be doing the rescuing?
Azagoth is everything that I adore in a hero. He has the right amount of alpha-ness without being an abusive jerk. I love Azagoth’s snarkiness. He is not the type of man to mince his words. His wisecracks, especially towards those who annoy him, made me laugh. What I like the most about Azagoth is how he understands his limitations. Lilliana inspires him to be a better person and father; however, Azagoth knows he can never banish his dark nature.
Lilliana actually surprised me. She possesses the right amount of spirit and stubbornness to keep my interest. I like how Lilliana’s personality compliments Azagoth’s. She is the ying to Azagoth’s yang, knowing how to smooth his rough edges. What I love the most about Lilliana is her upmost faith in Azagoth. She never once doubted that he would not come to her rescue. However, Lilliana did not just sit by passively, instead, she tried to find a way to escape her captors.
REAPER is book twenty in Larissa Ione’s popular paranormal romance series, DEMONICA. This story is a continuation of the novella, AZAGOTH, found in 1001 DARK NIGHTS: BUNDLE TWO. I have not read any of the novellas in those compilations, including AZAGOTH, so I feel that I missed on the couple’s start. It has been years since I have read a full-length novel from this author, so I could not wait to get my paws on this book. I love how beloved characters from the previous books play important roles throughout the story. I also like the Dungeons & Dragons references.
REAPER is a gripping, nail-biting tale of the sacrifices two souls are willing to make for the other. I am sad that this series has come to an end. It has been a fun and wild adventure.
