HER TOUCH IS DEADLY

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.

HIS HUNGER CAN'T BE DENIED

Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.

For this chapter in the Demonica series, we have Sin. First and only female Seminus demon, sister to Eidolon, Shade, Wraith & Lore. She’s been with Lore most of her life and resisted the relationship with her other brothers, but the devastation she has brought onto the world has her needing all the help she can get.

Con thought his one quickie with the female Sem would be the end of their relationship. Like he wanted to deal with her brothers. But then the council tasks him with bringing Sin in to pay for starting the whole plague on the wargs. Problem is, Con starts to feel, and not only that, he starts to break down Sin’s wall she’s built up as an Assassin leader. That was not a smart thing for him to do to Sin. She has spent a lot of time and effort into keeping her feelings bottled up, and when she finally breaks down and trusts him, he had better be prepared not to cross her.

As I may have mentioned with my review on Shade’s book, I really hate when the male MC turns to being a total asshat with the excuse of it being for “her protection”. That is such total bullshit. I did not appreciate Con doing it. I’m surprised he did actually, and I’m surprised the Sem brothers didn’t kill him. They probably would have I think if he wasn’t dealing with it so hard anyway. I was so mad for Sin, that I almost didn’t want her to try and save the jackass. It was so unlike her. But when she realizes his purpose, she sucks it up and goes full out to save Con.

I enjoyed Sin Undone. It may not have been my favorite of the series, but I definitely liked it. There was some good action scenes and the effort and struggle Sin puts into trying to fix her plague really keeps you trying to problem solve with her.

The narration was done well. I think I would have liked more attitude for Sin, but other than that the narrator was able to assimilate me into the story without any bumps. It was a really good listen.

  • This is the one I haven’t read yet. Somehow I skipped it during my reading. I will get back to it one day 🙂 I totally read these out of order (horseman first and then these is all kinds of backwards so that is probably how it happened).

    • Where Sin is kind of the odd ball out being the only female, it would be easy to skip her after thinking the brother’s stories were all done, and she doesn’t make much of an appearance in the horseman stories like Eidolon and Shade do.
