Overview

After accidentally stealing the life force of a dying demon, Allay became the only human-demon hybrid in existence. Demons feed on human emotions, so Allay decided the safest way to satisfy this need-and still retain some semblance of her humanity-was to open a bar. Here she can drink from, and ease, her patrons' pain, which has helped her to stay under the demon radar...until now.

When Allay is attacked and nearly killed by another demon, a human comes to her rescue. Theo Ram is tall, handsome, and mortal-and Allay feels a connection to him she didn't think she'd ever know. But that bond is tested when the demon community in New York begins to rise up, and two opposing clans fight for power. Now Allay is caught in the middle, and she must decide where her loyalties lie.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Human-demon hybrid Allay lives a comfortable life. Her job as a bartender suits her demon side well—like most demons, she is an emotional vampire who feeds on humans' feelings, both good and bad. When her demon friend, Shock, is attacked and left for dead, Allay's investigation leads her to a massive demon conspiracy and puts her in the path of Theo Ram, a tough-guy bodyguard with a closely guarded secret. Wright, who has written several Star Trek novels, writes with plenty of finesse, introducing a world very much like our own, with the addition of centuries-old demons who crave our strongest emotions. VERDICT The combination of social commentary on the power of religion in contemporary society, a sensual romantic subplot, and a protagonist whose dual nature causes a moral dilemma that could kill her start this promising new series on a high note.
