Passionate and headstrong, half-demon Raven is nearly executed on the orders of her fundamentalist stepfather. She escapes from the burning stake using the gifts of her otherworldly heritage and the help of a mortal stranger named Blade. Now she’s set on revenge, and only quiet, intense Blade stands in her way.
A retired assassin weary of the weight of his past, Blade has crossed the desert to seek out a new life. His journey is interrupted when his conscience demands he help Raven find an old friend who can help her. Saving her from her need for revenge and delivering her into the hands of loved ones means he’s one step closer to redemption.
But as Blade’s sense of duty becomes something more and threats, both mortal and immortal, stalk the woman he can’t abandon, he could very well fall back into the life he’s trying so hard to escape.
In this second installment of the Demon Outlaws series, we land in a world that is broken and lawless. Things are not as they seem and Raven is accused of being a demon. Similar to the witch trials, the mob mentality is unjust and desperate to live, she flees. Blade is an assassin with a past. He wars with duty and the want of a new life.Both are running from mob justice and fall in together after he saves her from her stepfather who nearly killed her for being a half demon. finding something in each other in the process. Love is a choice...every act in our lives is a choice, especially fighting for what and whom we love.
This story was well written and touched on some very universal themes. I had not read the first book, but was able to slip in and sink right into the story with no issue.
