“They say I’m half demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead.”
Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke.
When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. The price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.
Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell, an assassin with ulterior motives, and her bloodthirsty demon-kin, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive.
When your ex is the Prince of Greed, you'd better be ready to raise hell.

Fast paced and keeps you guessing till the end!
It was a good read. Kept my attention but had some slow areas. The story line was good, but seems like to much detail. It seemed just all over the place. The ending had me confused and debating on second book.
Beyond the Veil
This book was okay, but did not convince me to continue the series. It does a good job illustrating how difficult it is to extricate oneself from a toxic relationship after being manipulated, gas lit, and brainwashed into dependency for so long. While I can empathize with Muse, there’s nothing likable about her and wish she had more agency. Her logic is questionable on numerous occasions even when she’s mentally stable, making the few hundred page journey with her somewhat grating. For someone who supposedly survived countless assassinations she isn’t very alert and bumbles everywhere. I also never buy into the “I’ve known you for a week and I love you” narrative.
