Warriors of the Rift

Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos.

The next opening of the rift is coming-and its consequences will be deadly. A rogue group of human-hating preternaturals is planning an apocalyptic attack, but the Council of Preternaturals may have found the key to saving the world: Keira O’Brien, a fey with a long criminal record, whose empathic abilities once made her the queen of con artists. If she successfully infiltrates the dangerous faction, the sins of her past will be forgiven.

Keira isn’t the only agent working against the rogue prets. Finn Evnissyen, a powerful demon with a dark lineage, is a hired assassin looking for a way out. If he stops the threat, he will finally earn his freedom. As the rift fast approaches, and danger escalates, Finn and Keira must discover if they’re on the same side-or sleeping with the enemy . . .


Review: I saw the book cover and just went crazy over the guy, so I read the blurb. I knew I had to read this book or I would go crazy. I will warn you not to read this book if you are hungry. Just the way the author described the hamburgers made my mouth water. I could just imagine that I was eating one when Keira and Finn ate theirs.

Keira and Finn both are keeping secrets from each other and being that they are not human that explains some of it. What they don’t know is they are both working undercover. Maybe if they had known that might have worked better together. I think that they had to do this just so they could learn to trust each other. Keira just wants to let go of her past and live an as normal life as she can. Finn is the son of Lucifer and he is tired of being at his dad’s beck and call all the time. Finn keeps that to himself and also what else he is besides a demon. He is just so bad boy and you have to love him in his leather and driving his motorcycle.

In this book you always have to be on the look out and it is hard to know who is good and who is bad. You also need to be careful with who you trust. When you have something this big coming up you know that you can’t breathe a sigh of relief until it is all over. I think I need to just take a calm breath after reading this and just think about everything that happened. Just when I thought my heart would stay in my chest and I could relax something else was going on. I like vampires but some of the one’s in here are just down right mean. Demons have never really been my favorite but I will change my mind for Finn.

Even thought this said that it had 368 pages in it, it really only had about 289. The author gave bits and pieces of the other books in this series and I liked that. I haven’t read the other books but getting a taste of the others makes me want to read them. I especially want to read more about Nix. Saying that I really didn’t think I was missing out on a big part of the series. I think that because this one is the one where all the action of the rift is happening. The author was very descriptive in her writing.  She also knows how to weave her stories to readers and gives them what they want.

If you want to read a wonderful romantic paranormal suspense with a demon and a fey falling in love then this is the book for you.
