Overview

When Erion’s son is kidnapped by the evil vampire Cruen, Erion vows to stop at nothing to find his hideaway—including intercepting the traveling party of Cruen’s beautiful bride-to-be. But instead of a vulnerable caravan, Erion is met by a feral band of female demons that includes Hellen, the bride—a creature of dark magic and darker passion.

Though the safety of his son is foremost, Erion can’t deny his unexpected connection to Hellen—inflaming a manic desire as primal as it is irresistible. As their bond intensifies, they move toward an inevitable and terrifying battle. With time running out, Erion realizes he must not only find and rescue his son but protect Hellen from Cruen and the underworld forces waiting to destroy her for her betrayal.

We visit with favorite characters from past books in ETERNAL DEMON. It was fun to see the irreverent Lucian again. Alexander was his usual commanding self except when it came to his Achilles heel, Sara. Nicholas and Kate face a dark moment in their lives, and it will be interesting to see how they come out on the other side. Synjon Wise has virtually gone mad. Erion is an angry vampire on a mission. His recently discovered son has been kidnapped by his diabolical `creator.' An evil man named Cruen. He fears that Cruen will use his son for horrific experiments to `improve' their vampire bloodlines. Erion himself is a combination of demon and vampire blood a repulsive mutore. Eroin fears for his son and will do anything to get him back. But he does not count on the seductive and fiery demon princess Hellen. This story delves into how he gets his powers and created other powerful vampire such as Erion. I also enjoyed the two main characters. Erion is totally driven and intense. He has never known real love and to discover he has a young and defenseless child drives him harder. But he unwillingly finds himself attracted to the sexy Hellen. Hellen is unlike any woman he has ever known. She also has secrets and powers that fascinate and open his hardened heart. Hellen has never known a man who drives her libido or her heart more. She is used to being the strong one and having someone who wants to help her is strange and unreal. Although she wants to depend on him she is afraid of being vunerable. Not only are the passion between the two characters spellbinding but their quest to fight against the marriage set for Hellen and find Erion's son will immediately draw the reader.

4.5 stars:  REVIEW: ETERNAL DEMON is the fifth storyline in Laura Wright's Mark of the Vampire series. MOTV features pureblood vampires, impures (1/2 human/1/2 vampire) mutores and an assortment of terms found at the beginning of each storyline and novel but for this particular novel-there is no glossary. Anyone new to the series (reading Eternal Demon first) may have a bit of a problem because Laura Wright uses terminology that is specific to the MOTV series. Perhaps the missing information is specific to the Netgalley copies, and when the book is released the definitions will be included. Eternal Demon is Erion's storyline. Erion is a mutore-the adopted son of the vampire's worst enemy-Cruen. Mutores have been long thought a myth in vampire lore-a combination of vampire and shifter, and Erion is a mutore plus much, much more. When Erion's son is kidnpped by Cruen, Erion makes it his mission to retrieve his son but not before taking something or someone he believes Cruen wants-his mate. But the woman Erion kidnaps is much more than Cruen's intended mate-she is the daughter of the Devil himself and she has a few secrets buried beneath a beautiful face and body. The storyline follows that the Devil has sold his daughter Hellen to Cruen for a favor and to keep her younger sisters safe and out of harm's (the Devil) way, Hellen agrees to marry Cruen, but a cruel twist of fate will find that Hellen is only the means to an end for her father- a father worthy of the moniker of pure evil -the Devil. Erion has long thought there is no female who would want the mutore that is the man. Finding Hellen, a woman who calls to his soul, Erion must first accept what has long been buried inside of himself, but in freeing Hellen he will also unleash a demon of a very different kind. Not only does Hellon tug at Erion's heart but so too do the bowels of Hell and the demons who reside within. But Hellen has an interesting way of dealing with people who literally p*ss her off. Interesting concept if we could all eat those whom we didn't like **snort** ETERNAL DEMON brings together many of the previous storyline characters including the Roman brother's and their mates, as well as Synjon Wise whose story begins in Eternal Beauty and will continue in November 2013's Eternal Sin. The reader learns Petra's true identity and how saving Synjon's life will affect his future as well as her own. The cohesion of the series is well blended with the inclusion of many of our favorite vampires from stories past. Laura Wright has written a fast paced and richly detailed installment in the Mark of the Vampire series with Eternal Demon. The storyline pulls together friends and past enemies to help free a small child whose only sin is the father he is just learning to love. Eternal Demon has the familiarity of another storyline where the beast falls for the beauty, and in true fairytale fashion, there is always a happily ever after. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com

I was hooked from the beginning. Character progression was so smooth that I felt like I knew each of them as the story moved along. I actually felt like I was in the Rain Fields with them, shooting rogue demons. I am a MOTV fan and I absolutely loved this book! I am super excited for the next book, Eternal Sin, to come out in November 2013. Thank you Laura Wright for another fantastic MOTV book! I definitely look forward to reading more from this amazing author :)

Wickedly delicious, Erion is a  hybrid vampire whose son has been kidnapped by Cruen, his adoptive father, as part of a scheme to use both Erion and son in genetic experiments. When Erion gets word his son has been kidnapped, he takes it upon himself to strike where it hurts and goes after Cruen’s bride-to-be, Hellen, the Devil’s daughter. She is to be married to Cruen in hopes of uniting the two and spawning a child capable of returning the Devil to earthbound form unbeknownst to Hellen. Can Erion keep his mind clear of the primal need Hellen ignites within him and save his son before all Hell breaks loose? “No. Not here in the hallway. Here. You and me and the kisses, and your leg between mine, and me wanting so much more between my legs, and you threatening to bite me, and a feeling that was never supposed to surface…” This is the first book of Laura Wright’s I have read, and much like Sherrilyn Kenyon and Laurell K. Hamilton, she paints an intoxicating story that stirs your inner most desires and emotions and has you pleading for more with every page. I was in euphoria when I noted this book was part of an extensive series to get your heart racing, toes curling, and stomach fluttering. This book will have you eating up the story and begging for more. Be forewarned. Don’t start this book without clearing your schedule because once you pick it up, you won’t be putting it down! *This book was provided in exchange for an honest review                     *You can view the original review at San Francisco Book Review

Eternal Demon, the fifth installment in the Mark of the Vampire series, continues where book 4 left off. I'm a huge fan of the series and Laura and had been looking forward to this book just find out what comes next!! Laura has done a great job of expanding and developing the world and characters, both original and new. She could easily create a spin-off series and lovers of the MOTV series would love it as well!  Erion intrigued me from the very beginning and I was curious to see how his story would unfold. To tell you the truth, I didn't expect what I got! Talk about a twist! I loved it!! Sometimes, you start to wonder how the author will keep you engaged when the series has grown into something different from the original arc. With this series, you wonder but are happy with the outcome!! A much darker story from the previous ones, but it works and brings truth to both lead characters. As this is a romance, I wondered how the whole love match would occur. There were lots of possibilities/scenarios running through my mind and like I said earlier, LOVED the twist. Hellen is PERFECT for Erion. Strong and independent. She doesn't coward against nor behind Erion's alpha demeanor. They truly are a great match. Both bring out the best in each other. Not wanting to provide you with spoilers, I'll end this review with letting you know that it's a must read and is a great addition to a fantastic series. The end is a great set up for the next book, however, note that there is a novella that goes between this book and the next, which I highly suggest you read in order to fully understand book six. Besides, it's a Laura Wright novella. You know it will be awesome!!

I love this series. The world that Laura Wright has created is both intriguing, and well thought out. This book, Eternal Demon was among my favorites in the series. I loved the underworld views, and I cant wait to read more of the shifter/vamps in the future. Syn's story is next, and I am excited to see it. If you love vampire stories, this is def. one of the better ones.
