looking for a new publisher
Rating: 3 Enchantments
Fallon is a teleport half-demon and partner to Feyd Nightly, another half-demon. They are a pair of mischievous devil-may-care jack-of-all trade thugs for hire. A bit on the oversexed side, they seemed to score and be ready to score at the drop of a swizzle stick.Astrid is one hot sexy rich witch who has a penchant for saving her friend Ashlyn Co’shott from hairy situations she seems to be always getting herself into.
Astrid and Ashlyn themselves have quite the passion for fine things and encounters that leaves them breathless and wet.
Fallon and Feyd find themselves hired to a supposedly easy snatch, recover the magic and eliminate job. The job becomes complicated when they find out the person to be snatched is Ashlyn who is under the protection of the witch Astrid, the one true love of Fallon. Too add to the complexity Feyd fall for Ashlyn and both girls are key to parts of the master plan of Cassiel, an exiled demon prince, to dethrone the current Demon Lord and become master of all demons.
To stay alive and enjoy their new found love in the forms of Astrid and Ashlyn, Fallon and Feyd must jump in with both feet into the murky and dangerous game of demon power politics and take out their boss Fallwell and his crew and chase down some magic that is supposed to halt death to keep from being smoked themselves, along with keeping two healthy women with very large sexual appetites satisfied.
The plot, though interesting, could play out better in the book. Too much emphasis is placed on trying to throw in every known sexual fantasy rather than the underlying struggles of all key characters. The underlying themes are rich for more exposure and would allow the reader a better and more fulfilling look at the craft and imagination these two writers have to share.
The Price sisters show that they have a good understanding of the elements of an interesting story, however they are rather stingy in sharing their great potential by replaying limited themes again and again. I believe they have the potential to develop not just semi-stimulating (erotic) content but also content that has substance and I am looking forward to reading their future work.
