Purchase: Liquid Silver Books (link to purchase HERE)
Born of a Navajo healer and a high-level prince of Hell, The Dine Gods demanded Fatal be turned over to her mother's tribe to learn their healing arts and kept away from demon hands. But with her tutelage came cruel segregation and disrespect because of her father's heritage. Not knowing why her life has suddenly come under demon attack, Fatal sets out, armed with her knowledge and her fighting skills, to take out any evil that gets in her way.
As prince of a lower level of Hell, Orobus signed a contract in blood that he be betrothed to Fatal, the high prince of Hell’s half-breed daughter. Oracle by birth, he isn’t privy to complete visions with regard to himself. Having forgotten the fateful night he signed the agreement, he’s thrust into the fight of his life—the fight to claim his woman! Come Hell or high water, he will take care of what is rightfully his, even if it means making her face both sides of her heritage and teaching her there is no shame.
When I got this book, I only had the blurb to go by so I wasn't sure what to truly expect. Let me tell you I so need to read book #2. Ackchetta a.k.a. Fatal and Orobus are the main characters in this book. Fatal is half demon/half human (Navajo) and a healer while Orobus is an oracle and has these visions, that when it comes to himself, are not complete. He is also a lower level demon prince who serves his master Azazel. While Fatal is on the run from her father whom, she feels abandoned her at birth, she ends up at the club Demonic Persuasion owned and operated by Orobus. That is when this story starts to kick up into high gear (in more ways than one). Did I mention this book is white HOT!!!! The scenes when Fatal and Orobus get together are always intense and yet you can always see there is more to them then just the heavy sex they have. You see a girl starved for love and acceptance and a man who actually learns to care for someone other than himself. For him it is normal to not feel things, being the demon that he is, but with Fatal all that changes. You would think that this would be enough of a good story but wait Mahalia throws in an underhanded plot devised by someone you wouldn't expect. This book had me captivated as well as blushing....lmao. I have never read a book that centered exclusively on demons and I found it to be an unexpected thrill. Mahalia sure knows how to make a demon sound sexy. On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a 10. If you are 18+ and truly looking for your not so typical demon story were love and trust can make a difference without coming off as corny than you really need to get a copy of Demonic Persuasion. I wasn't sure how I would feel about this story but I am proud to say I really loved it. I can't wait til book #2.
