Review: "Revenant" by Larissa Ione


Author: Larissa Ione 
Title: "Revenant" 
Book 11 in Demonica series
Main characters: Revenant and Blaspheme

I've read this book about four months after it was originally published. It waited on my to-be-read pile for all this time and all I can say for myself is... I forgot how good this series is... it's the only explanation ;) I mean, it's a coping mechanism... :) like when a series is so good, that if you have to wait for a year for a new book, you just force yourself to forget how good it is, how well written and how much you love the characters and the most important part... how curious you are of what's next... ;) because otherwise the wait would be impossibly long... ;) so all I can say is that I was extremely successful in the forgetting part and now I'm kicking myself for that, because I could have read it so much sooner :)

And what a beautiful book it was... :) now I again remember why I love Larissa Ione writing style ;) it's funny and moving and sexy and touching and just absolutely amazing all in one book :) I have to confess that I even teared up a little in a scene or two... it's one of the highest form of compliment from me... when I'm so invested in the characters, their story and their fate that I keep forgetting that they are just fictional people from a book :)

It is truly brilliant how Larissa Ione was able to change and evolve this series taking us from one story arc to another in a way that feels effortless... and closing some major story arcs in this book ;) because it is sort of an ending but not exactly ;) let me explain... :) she posted on her blog epilogue to this book and a "what's next" post (here's a link for you) where she explains what's in the future of the series so you can breathe again, it is not the end :) I know I certainly felt relieved ;) I don't want to write more in my post because I don't want to spoil anything, so if you are curious right now, click on the link and find out ;)

The author creates a world, that is so easy to fall back into, even if you forget some details from previous books ;) each of the stories in this series (because I treat all of the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance books as one Demonica series) captures you and won't let go until the very end... and the farther we were in the series the bigger the obstacles in front of our main couple... and with each book I was talking to myself (which I do often, especially while reading ;D ) "How they can overcome this? How can they actually be together?" And each and every single time she just gives us solution and I'm like "I didn't see that one coming" or "I see what you did there... good one" ;) and it was the same with this book... although I have to admit, that I absolutely did not see that one coming... but it was both surprising and very satisfying :) as a reader, I'm very happy :) it is a definite must-read for not only Larissa Ione fans, but for every reader who loves a good paranormal-romance-adventure-sexy-funny-a-little-bit-of-fantasy book out there :)
