Overview

Irish myths, never sexier.
‘You got me back. You always said you would.’
Ash DeMorgan, graduate, orphan, ice maiden, has long since consigned the fairytale night-mares of a troubled childhood to the realm of fantastical childish imagination.
Now, lured back to Dublin, the scene of her tragic past, Ash encounters a city pulsing under the dangerous sexual influence of a new street drug the locals call Rave. Nothing is as it seems. Ash is about to discover that her nightmares are real, ancient Irish myths are larger than life and roaming the streets of the medieval city, and she has become the prey in their erotic hunt. A step back into her past is about to become a high adrenaline race for survival.
Connal Savage, outcast, assassin, and living, breathing hunk of ancient mythology, has lived a thousand years servicing a debt of revenge. Dead inside. Until he encounters his boss’s granddaughter, an infuriating woman who threatens to lead him to hell with all his good intentions, who manages to chip away at the hard encrusted defences of a lifetime spent at war and burrow herself deep into a part of him that hasn’t breathed for centuries. He is about to discover that when it comes down to the wire, when you’re bargaining with the Grim Reaper for the life of the one you love, you will do anything...

    Could finish this one

    This book was like reading a story about someone on LSD. They were hallucinating, dreaming, remembering the past and experiencing reality all at the same time. I had to reread sections just to figure out what was going on. Way too much work.

    Loved It!

    This was a great find. I loved the book so much I purchased the next two in the series. The story had enough fantasy to inspire visions of another world but also enough mythology and reality to ground it. Can't wait to see more from this wtiting duo.

    Amazing Book!!

    I do not understand the negative reviews. Granted, the writing was a bit different, but hardly difficult to understand. In fact, I found it very readable with a narrative that compelled me to keep reading with a sense of urgency and tension. This is not the type of book that has serene descriptions for you to ponder. It moves fast, so let the words wash over you and enjoy the ride.

    I liked this book, the characters, and the writing style so much that, upon finishing it, I immediately turned back to the beginning to read it again. I noticed so many examples of foreshadowing that I had missed the first time! The plot is complex and consistent, with multidimensional characters (with good and bad qualities in both the protagonists and the antagonists who do the things that they do for valid reasons) and engrossing, "realistic" descriptions of unrealistic places.

    I honestly cannot say enough positive about this book. I generally stick with the freebies unless an author stands out and motivates me to read more of their writing. After my second reading, I purchased "Becoming Bad" and I have not been disappointed! I am hooked.

    good book.

    I wonder if there is a sequel, or perhaps a whole series of books?

    The story was okay just a little scattered a times. It was hard to get into the story because there was so much left unsaid. More background would hav ehelped. Like just what powers did the Grandma have. What exactly was the heroine. Let so much out.

    more from this reviewer

    I decided to read the book because it was free. I bought the nex

    I decided to read the book because it was free. I bought the next two because the first one was really good. Reminded me of the Fever series from Karen Marie Moning. It was sexy, edgy, and nuances of mythology sold me. I read all three books in two days. It was that good. Thanx! I'm going to look into more books by these authors.
