Review: Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione

Author's Website

Read an excerpt

Serena Kelley closely guards two things… a charm that keeps her invincible to the danger all around her and her virginity. If she gives up her virginity she loses the invincibility and she’ll die of the disease that was affecting her when she was given the charm to save her life at age seven.

While out hunting one night, Wraith a Seminus (sex) demon was hit with a poisonous dart. The only thing that can save him is the charm Serena holds. As he sets about seducing her he learns some unexpected things: if he dies, his two brothers also die and the Underworld hospital they run is destroyed. Plus if Serena loses the charm the gates between Heaven and Hell are destroyed and Armageddon will begin on earth.

Who will prevail when all options lead to death and destruction?

I absolutely loved this book. There are actually two sets of characters that are followed in this book that ultimately tie together in the end. Obviously the world doesn’t end and Wraith saves the day but the storyline is very unique with a couple of twists that I didn’t see coming. The sex scenes are very steamy but not at all crass which in my opinion can take away a lot from a book.

Passion Unleashed is book three in the Demonica series and I have yet to read Pleasure Unbound or Desire Unchained but I highly recommend reading them first. I wasn’t lost but the back story on a lot of the characters in this book are explained in those two books. I’m definitely reading those two and looking forward to book 4, Ecstasy Unveiled coming in February 2010.
