Imagine a secret world veiled in fairy glamour and brimming with unearthly delights. A city swarming with half-mad fairies, where thieving spriggans rob you blind, beautiful banshees mesmerize you with their song, and big green trolls bust heads at nightclubs. And once you're in, there's no escape…Welcome to the world of Erica Hayes Shadowfae.
Enslaved by a demon lord, Jade is forced to spend her nights seducing vampire gangsters and shapeshifting thugs. After two hundred years as a succubus, she burns for freedom and longs to escape her brutal life as a trophy girl for hell's minions. Then she meets Rajah, an incubus who touches her heart and intoxicates her senses. Rajah shares the same bleak fate as she, and yearns just as desperately for freedom. But the only way for Jade to break her bonds is to betray Rajah—and doom the only man she's ever loved to a lifetime in hell.
This engaging sequel to 2009 s Shadowfae\n weaves rich sensual imagery and dark eroticism into a breathless thriller plot. Thieving fairies, vampire gangsters, powerful demon lords, and creepy earth-bound angels all compete in a frenetic, bloody race to gain possession of a powerful magical artifact, a tiny mirror from Hell that destroys inhibitions. Light-fingered party girl Ice, a strawberry-scented water fairy, finds herself brazenly indulging in both lust and brave anger after she steals the mirror from Kane, demon lord of decadent Melbourne. When she loses it, sexy metal fairy Indigo, attracted to Ice but fearful of connection, offers to betray alliances and help her regain the item, but his own mirror-taint makes him mercurial and impossible to trust. Hayes s characters have distinct and delightful voices, and she s developed considerable skill at blending the gritty and the supernatural. \n
Very imaginative setting and characters. Quick and easy read, I was entertained. Lot's of steamy parts. I will read more books by this author.
