MARK OF THE SYLPH, Book Two, Demons of Infernum Series
Half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.
Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.
Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.
Book two is just as great as Book one in the Demons of Infernum series.
This novel is about Taeg; half-demon and half-faerie. When we last left him he was intent on seeking out Leviathos; an old rival. Taeg, however now also finds himself looking for an ancient sword that can destroy the book--The Book of the Dead--that can bring forth a zombie army with the use of Taeg's sister-in-law, Brynn.
Then he meets Maya, a librarian that can see through the glamour used by otherwordly persons to conceal their identity. And is she ever a spitfire, which only makes the heat Taeg feels for her grow. Maya has secrets though that has her hating every supernatural creature out there, especially Demons. Taeg knows she can be useful to the cause that he and his brothers have; protect Brynn and destroy the Book of the Dead....but someone else has another thing planned and it involved both Brynn and the Book.
I am impressed with the continuance of excellence with this series. Again, we have the lovable brothers and Brynn from Blood of the Demon and the addition of Maya. All of these characters are strong and most have come from horrible pasts filled with abuse and/or violence. The humorous tones are appropriately placed on the pages and nothing falls flat. Taeg has certainly met his match with Maya, who keeps him on his toes - or on the floor while she's trying to kill him. She could whoop his butt without thinking twice, a trait that he adores about her. His trademark abilities don't work on her either so there's no charming her to get her to back off. We get a very strong hero and heroine in this book just like in Book 1 and for that I'm grateful. (I'm not really all for a wimpy heroine in what is supposed to be a strong, kick-butt story).
This book rocks and I'm glad to have gotten the opportunity to read it and review it on my blog.
