Book DescriptionPassionate and headstrong, half-demon Raven is nearly executed on the orders of her fundamentalist stepfather. She escapes from the burning stake using the gifts of her otherworldly heritage and the help of a mortal stranger named Blade. Now she’s set on revenge, and only quiet, intense Blade stands in her way.
A retired assassin weary of the weight of his past, Blade has crossed the desert to seek out a new life. His journey is interrupted when his conscience demands he help Raven find an old friend who can help her. Saving her from her need for revenge and delivering her into the hands of loved ones means he’s one step closer to redemption.
But as Blade’s sense of duty becomes something more and threats, both mortal and immortal, stalk the woman he can’t abandon, he could very well fall back into the life he’s trying so hard to escape.
Black Widow Demon by Paula Altenburg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Awesome book and incredible series! Paula Altenburg is a brilliant writer and I can't say I have ever read a series quite like this one before. I loved the characters and the story makes you sit on the edge of your seat wanting more. I didn't enjoy this second book quite as much as the first but I still loved blade's story as he was a favourite of mine from the first book.
Blade has decided it was time to leave Freetown behind after the demon wars and has been on the road ever since going from town to town. When he walks into the dusty town of Goldrush he gets a little more then he bargained for. When he sees the beautiful Raven in Trouble he isn't sure why but knows he must help her somehow.
Raven has had to suffer a life of abuse at the hands of her stepfather her whole life, but this is the very last straw, for his cruel ways are going to get her secrets found out by all. Standing accused of being spawn she is going to face the stake and when she doesn't burn in fire they will all know her secret, that her mother lay with a demon.
Together they go on a journey that leads them into the godseeker mountains in search of Raven's friend Creed and the Godseeker Assasions, But Raven's Stepfather is on their trail and will stop at nothing to make sure that Raven is exposed and killed for the demon spawn she is.
Will Blade fall back into the life he’s trying so hard to escape? for a woman he hardly knows? and will he only ever see her for the demon spawn and not the woman that she she is?
