Once a proud demon of the night sky who carried nightmares to humans, Tenrael has spent decades in captivity as the star attraction of a traveling carnival. He exists in miserable servitude to men who plunk down ten dollars to fulfill their dark desires.
Charles Grimes is half human, half… something else. For fifteen years he’s worked for the Bureau of Trans-Species Affairs, ridding the country of dangerous monsters. When his boss sends him to Kansas to chase a rumor about a captive demon, Charles figures it’s just another assignment. Until he meets Tenrael.
Not for the meek! Trigger warnings: rape, physical and mental abuse.
I am currently reading the second book in the series Clay White and Tenrael and Charles’ story continues (but they are not the main characters). Because this book was so short and the HFN was unsatisfying, I can’t recommend this as a stand-alone. But I can recommend it with book 2. In fact, when I write my review for the second book, I am going to suggest reading Corruption first.
Confused yet? My review for Clay White will be up shortly.
Great world-building, compelling characters but too short to be satisfying. And heed the trigger warnings. Tenrael is terribly mistreated. Until he meets his knight-in-shining-armor, Charles. 🙂
