An otherworldly elf with an insatiable hunger she doesn’t understand.

Welcome back to the Demonica Underworld, where enemies find love…if they’re strong enough to survive.
ExcerptShivering, she went back inside and fetched the med kit from the bathroom. Razr was still passed out cold, so gently and carefully she stripped off his slacks.
He didn’t wear underwear. Oh, my.
Her mouth went as dry as the sand forest in her elven homeland as she took in his magnificent body. Everything began to burn, parts of her she’d all but forgotten she had in the five years since she’d last been with a man. The fallen angel was about as perfect as anything she’d ever seen. Made sense, she supposed—she’d never thought angels would be anything less than perfection. But seeing one naked and up close? No one could blame her for wanting to take pictures and post to all her friends on Instagram, right?
Cursing her ethics, she arranged him on his belly to allow access to his shredded back. Shame at the fact that she’d just ogled him shrank her skin. Gods, he must have been in so much pain. She’d nearly passed out herself during the beating, unable to stomach the sight of muscle and bone exposed by the deep lacerations.
Making matters worse, Shrike had reveled in the gore, growing angrier with each strike, as if he’d been taking some deep inner pain out on Razr. When it was over, he’d thrown down the cat and fled the office without a word, leaving her to gather Razr’s unconscious body and find her way out of the castle.
At least the wounds had stopped bleeding and were already starting to heal. Still, this was one of the times she wished she’d chosen the garnet Gem of Enoch instead of the diamond. Jedda and her sisters hadn’t known what power each of the gems had possessed at the time they’d chosen and assimilated them, but neither Jedda nor Reina had been completely happy with the outcomes. Manda had embraced the killing power of her stone, but Reina had no desire to heal and had been furious. And while Jedda’s gem had given her an ability to violently repel demons that she actually used sometimes, being able to help now and then would have been cool too.
Very carefully, she cleaned Razr’s wounds and applied bandages, each one drawing an elven curse from her. Such a perfect body, torn to shreds on a regular basis. He had no scars—at least, none that were visible. She’d heard there were species of demons that could see scars no one else could, and she wondered what one of those demons would see if they looked at Razr.
Jedda saw a very fit, very toned male.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've really enjoyed reading this series so far and this was no exception. I've got to say this is my favourite so far of the Demonica Underworld novellas.
This story follows Razr and Jedda. Razr is a fallen angel, but is a bit different from the norm. He's neither full fallen or unfallen. He's been stripped of his powers and cast out of heaven until he can right a wrong and return a sacred gem that he had a part in losing.
Jedda is an elf with a difference. I loved her back story and abilities. It was clever and unique compared to anything else that I've read before. Actually all of this series has great twists on old stories and legends which are very clever. She holds the key to the gems return but things never go to plan and plenty of obstacles stand in their way. Including their attraction to each other.
This was pretty action packed for a fairly short book with lots of plot and twists and turns. I honestly didn't have a clue which way things were going to go until the last. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way.
I loved Jedda and Razr. They were both pretty great characters. Jedda was strong with sass, but also had a vulnerable inner side as well. I also enjoyed reading Razr's story and getting inside his head as well. He had a lot more depths than I was expecting and I really liked him. It was also good to catch up with other characters from the series. My favourite will always be Azagoth. The grumpy grim reaper always amuses me, lol.
All in all a great, action packed, read. It was also emotional in places and packed some hotness in as well. As I said before, for a shorter book, it certainly wasn't lacking in plot.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this and can't wait to read more from this author and also see where this series might go next.
