Blurb: If your ex is the Prince of Greed, you’d better be ready to raise Hell.
Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse, she’s half demon, and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke.
When an assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. His price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.
Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell and an assassin with ulterior motives, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core—the demon inside her—in order to survive.
Review: This was great. I read a review about this book and I just had to read it for myself. Thank you booksaremyreality for your awesome review, you got me curious enough to go after it and I am hooked.
It was exciting and emotional, it was like I could feel everything that Muse felt. She knew her faults and she was so scared but she didn’t let that stop her.
This really could have gone many different ways and I’m so glad the author chose to take it in this direction. Never a boring moment, not even when they would just sit and chat, the action was never far away.
And the mystery of it was just engaging. Not a physical, who-dun-it, typical mystery but, an emotional one when she gets betrayed.
Written all in Muse’s POV, I felt like the readers really got to know her instead of the author just scratching the surface and, we even get glimpses into the other characters. Even though it is Muse’s POV, the facial expressions and what they would say gave readers insight into how they worked.
The characters are so in depth and well written, I love everyone, even the bad guys. I didn’t know who to trust or what to believe.
The ending is such an obvious cliffhanger but, I love it. There were so many places the book could’ve ended but, I think the author made the right choice in how it ended.
If you pick this book up, be prepared to not wanting to put it down. I need the other books. Pippa Dacosta, you have yourself another fan and hopefully you get many more.
Thank you for reading my review.
I’m so glad you liked it! The series stays consistent, so chances are you’ll love the rest of the series if you liked this. If you’re interested there is a short story that takes place before this book. It’s about how Muse met Akil in the demon world. You can get it for free at http://www.pippadacosta.com.
