There are so many things I loved about this story. The Old Ways and beliefs, the struggle between good and evil, the way Claire's writing tore at my soul as I walked the path beside the characters. The idea that love is strong enough to bring two people together no matter how inconceivable it all may seem.
Claire Ashgrove has once again snatched me up and took my emotions on a ride with her writing. I am really looking forward to following the other siblings on their journeys with the rest of the Inherited Damnation series!

I loved the premise behind this series. This history of Cian (which is a really cool name) and his sibling was interesting and I loved learning more about all of them. Cian would do anything to protect the woman he loves from himself. The evil side of his nature constantly battling with the good - with Miranda's life on the line.Was this review helpful?

When an ancient spell is uncovered that could potentially release him from this curse, he finds himself at odds with his demon father and even a few of his brothers and sisters. There was a lot of internal struggle in the book - which was a nice change of pace for a paranormal. It wasn't all physical fighting and battling and I enjoyed every minute of his mental struggle.
The ending was beautiful. My only complaint was that I wish I had understood more about the family dynamics. While we get to meet his siblings, I did not get a chance to really know them. As a result, many of them blended into one. I'm hoping that in future stories I get to know them better because they all sound fascinating.
