HELL HATH NO FURY . . .
For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme-a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.
LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED
Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she's the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there's no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won't find her . . .
Ione packs her seventh and final Demonica novel (after Reaver) with action, angst, and sexual intensity, allowing her tortured leads to at last obtain hard-fought redemption and love. After thousands of years of horrific abuse in hell, Revenant discovered he was not a fallen angel but an actual angel, albeit with "tainted" blood. Filled with intense rage, he also craves the company of Blaspheme, a doctor at Underground General who's determined to maintain her distance. Blaspheme is a vyrm a reviled and hunted hybrid of angel and fallen and she's ever more fearful for her safety now that her disguise as a false angel is fading. Feelings for the vyrm-hating Revenant only add to her inner turmoil, while guilt, memory lapses, and the imminent reincarnation of Lucifer weigh down Revenant. Readers will find it easy to empathize with these tormented leads. By tightly integrating multiple plot points without sacrificing romance or complex characters, Ione ends her series with an emotional bang.

Absolutely loved it! It was the best out of all the books and you just made me fall in love with Revenant. Once I started reading I just couldn't stop until I was finished. Believe or not, I'm sad to know this is it until you write the next books with the next generation characters because I just fell in love with this series.
Such a wonderful read that I couldn't put down! You know your addicted when you have to know what comes next!
Fantastic, action-packed, nail-biting suspense, and a very heartwarming romance.
There were a lot of liars and lies floating around in this story. Revenant was bitter after learning the truth about his birth, Reaver, his mother, what they'd been forced to endure and his role in her death. This time we got the full scope of the machinations going on in both Heaven and Sheoul, and how our beloved characters had been used as pawns for the greater advantage. Heaven was blackmailing him and trying to screw him over, Satan was doing the same, Reaver and everyone else seemed to have given up on him or just flat out thought the worst of him, all except Blaspheme. He lived by rules and hated liars, with good reason. His attraction to Blas quickly gave way to more. She didn't treat him the way anyone else did, and she surprised him by making him feel needed. He'd never known comfort or trust except from his mother, until Blas.
Blas had an equally tumultuous life, but at least her mother had always done what was best for her. Even though she had plenty of reasons to go into hiding and cower, she never let that stop her from helping others. She was a well-rounded heroine. Her subterfuge and consequent fear of being caught made her extremely cautious, but like I mentioned before, she still put others before herself. She was just so "good". I loved the way Rev and Blas interacted with one another. There were so many great moments of dialogue between them, from snarky to heartfelt, and a few times I was sobbing right along with her. The sex was quick and hot (limited to three scenes), and the story wasn't upstaged by the love scenes at all.
What I enjoyed the most about this story was the tension created by Blaspheme's secret and knowing that Revenant would probably not react well if he learned about it any other way than from her. The plan to get rid of Gethel and subsequently Lucifer was still at the forefront. Despite a few hiccups along the way, there was a most satisfying ending. I hated one of the archangels from Reaver and Harvester's story. I think a lot of readers felt the same way, so they'll enjoy one scene in particular.
I loved this story, especially the interesting conversation between Rev and Metatron at the end. We know that stopping the apocalypse from ever occurring is probably a pipe dream, so if the series ended here, it would be in a good place where everyone could be happy and loved. At least for a thousand years. I’m definitely adding the print copy to my LI collection.
