The place and time may have changed but this novel has the same dark, gritty feel as Ms. Kane's Chess Putnam series. Kane's characters are antiheroes: flawed, damaged, broken souls who manage to do the right thing anyway. The story is engaging and so are the characters. All in all, a good read.

Speare was caught up in an investigation involving: a crime boss, a demon blade and a thief- Ardeth - in the magical world. Speare’s has a demon inside him that is content as long as Speare’s sins. But then someone is using a demon knife to cut off parts of people. Speare ends up working with Ardeth as she has more knowledge of magical objects. Ardeth makes a living stealing magical and demonic objects. Speare develops feelings for Ardeth but knows he must sin. I didn’t love this story but I didn’t hate it either. I definitely wasn’t WOWed by this just seemed familiar to a lot of other paranormal romances I have already read. I had some problems with interest in the first half of the story. But this story had some good parts to it also. The plot was good but same guist as in other stories more or less. The characters were pretty good as were the ins and outs. Just wasn’t a big hit for me.

This took awhile for me to get into, the first 2/3rds was a bit slow going, but it kept my interest long enough for me to keep going. The world was interesting with its magic, though some of the items felt contrived. I really enjoyed Speare's voice in this. It had the perfect grit and vulnerability to it, and helped me liked him as character. I also liked Ardeth and thought she was a good match, though I didn't necessarily get a sense of chemistry between the two of them. It was much more paranormal than romance, which actually worked in several ways since it was hard to wrap my mind around "the beast" being around and seeing everything AND him actually falling for Ardeth. Speaking of, the beast felt really cheesy at first. As the story continued, it made more sense and became more interesting than cheesy, but something still felt a little off about it. All in all a fun occult badass serial (I assume) with an interesting mystery. I received a digital ARC from the publisher for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is my 100% own.

E.L Speare has a demon inside of him and if he doesn’t commit sins the demon will take control. He is looking into the murder in which a demon-sword was used. Her turns to Ardeth Coyle for help. This is a fast paced read. I would have preferred to be a bit longer to give more depth to the characters. However, I did like the story, the paranormal aspect is good with plenty of suspense.

I was given ARC copy for review and Loveswept. E. L. Speare is out to solve the mystery of who is killing with the Demon-sword. However he has a small problem. He is possessed by a demon. Ardeth Coyle is a thief who deals in stolen artifacts . Together they set out to find the person that is killing with the sword.

To some degree this is a tough book for me to review. I did not find anything new or surprising in the book. It was pretty predictable, but honestly the vast majority of books I read are. I don't require every book I read to have a completely new and exciting slant on a genre that has been over represented in the past decade or two. Also, this is a pretty short book and a quick read. If the storyline would have been bigger and more expansive this book may have resonated with readers more. The book didn't seem condensed exactly, but I think it might have had a greater impact if there would have been a little bit more background on the characters and their situations. I like Stacia Kane's books and that is why I think I enjoyed this book. As a stand alone this book is pretty much just ok. So in closing, if we consider this book just the first part of a greater story I think this book works nicely. We are introduced to a group of interesting players, each with their own demons and agendas. Do we know everything about these characters. No. Not even close. In future books will these characters expose their truths to us and grow along the way? I'm pretty sure they will. So I guess I'm reviewing this book as a single component in a body of work that has not yet been produced (and may never be) based on my liking Kane's other works. Which is weird when I think about it but it's my review and no one can stop me. I received this ARC for an honest review.
