Sins of the Sidhe – Briana Michaels - Ignite - Book 5
The fifth instalment in the Sins of the Sidhe series had me reeling! This book takes a closer look at the witches and demons we met briefly in the previous book.
Our FMC, a witch called Calla Lily is by all accounts a luscious and lusty wench with not just witchy magiks but also the power of premonition! She is fierce and wild and craves to be free from the demands of her family obligations. She considers herself unlucky in love. Cal just want a man to worship her, and only her. That’s not asking too much right? Her Sabik (Demon Guardian) Zane seems to be fighting a loosing battle keeping her in line and under control. For all the fights and bluster between the two, there is genuine affection. Zane has been bound to protect Cal since she was a wee babe, and his love for her as her guardian knows no bounds. He would quite literally die to protect her.
Enter Jeremy, Ignati demon. Powerful beyond measure, even his demon comrades (the Sabiks, Zane included) hold a healthy dose of fearful respect where he’s concerned. However, Jeremy is the embodiment of a good demon, he literally eats evil for breakfast! He is feisty and creative in a no-nonsense kind of way but keeps himself to himself due to his dual nature. Ignati Demons reincarnate into what they have eaten, and Jeremy will become Jeremiah, a terrible and violent demon, when he dies in this current life. He is the business partner of Rowan at Ignite Studios where they make beautiful glassware.
Let’s just say that the relationship that develops between the ‘good’ Ignati Jeremy and the witch Calla Lily is fragile. I do NOT mean fragile like a flower. I mean fragile like a bomb! It’s explosive and beautiful and they fall in love. It is such a powerful and desperate coming together of two souls that the resultant fallout was inevitable. Jeremiah must rise.
I can’t say more least I ruin the story, but I will say that I was so powerfully disturbed by the events that took place in the last few chapters, that I had to take a step back and let the dust settle before I could write this review. It had me ugly crying, throwing tantrums and cursing the author for the vicious trials that she rained down, one after the other upon the heads this beautifully tragic couple.
It has been a while since a book has torn me up so fully! This is the sign of a well written and executed story with fulfilling passion, desperately tortured hearts, unfulfilled dreams and love! Always love. Briana Michaels has delivered this and so much more right here in this rip your heart out narrative of love found, lost and found again. Yes, there is a HEA. At least for the end of this book anyway…
I gave it five stars!!!
