PURCHASE Blood of the Demon:

Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.
Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.
And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.
Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.

Blood of the Demon I felt had a little bit of everything, with a variety of paranormal beings, romance, action and holding your breath moments. The story reminded me a lot of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series and Gena Showalter’s Lord of the Underworld Series.  Rosalie Lario has four prominent male characters as her leads and each have different powers and past that I can tell will have their own story.  I enjoy series that introduce the characters, which will lead you into each book, thus making me excited for the next in the Demons of Infernum Series.

This story follows a woman named Brynn who discovers that her heritage is connected to a very power book. Which brings bounty hunters sent by their council to capture her before a darker evil does, this evil wants to take over earth. The bounty hunters are four brothers who are each half demon and half something else unique.  Keegan the eldest is the one to capture Brynn, but he can’t seem to get her out of his head and starts to fall for the only woman who has ever made his blood boil.  What makes all of this a little bit more difficult is that the evil madman they’re all trying to stop is the four brothers father.

Brynn was the typical tough female, who falls into a world that she never thought existed. I felt that she took in the idea of demons, fae, zombies and so on a little too easily but otherwise she was a great lead. She is special not only because of her heritage but also she holds a unique power. It’s great when a lead character can hold her own and be just as tough as the men.

Keegan, the eldest brother and smoking hot half demon and half “I’m not going to say” was just down right great. I loved his personality, his relationship and protectiveness of not only Brynn but also his brothers. The chemistry with Brynn was hot and made me blush through most of the pages. Lario really knows how to make the reader squirm in her seat with the passion that her two leads shared.

Overall a good start to a new series, Lario writes and great plot that I felt held a lot of depth for the future books. The strongest parts in the story was the relationship with the brothers,. I enjoyed their bickering moments, the bonds each had, and the wide range of entertaining personalities. The main issue I had was Keegan fighting for his feelings about Brynn, it was dragged on a little too long for my liking.  But none the less this is a great recommendation for paranormal romance fans.

This is an adult book with lots of sexual content, which means make sure you have a fan cause these pages get hot. Fans of Gena Showalter and Lara Adrian will devour Blood of the Demon.
