Sinead Donnelly, known as ‘Sin’ for short, is the only female Seminus demon in existence. As if that isn’t enough to make life interesting she’s also the master assassin which means she commands a band of not-so-merry men. Having spent years as a slave she’s quite determined to never be in that position again and, as a result, is leery of emotional commitment of any sort – even to her brothers. When Sin accidentally creates a virus harmful to werewolves (thereby kicking in motion a civil war), Conall Dearghul – half-werewolf/half-vampire – is given the mission to bring her in. Conall, even more into avoiding emotions than Sin (and I didn’t think that was possible), actually begins to like her. And that’s where things really get interesting.

‘Sin undone’ is the fifth book in Ione’s very popular Demonica series. Don’t start partway through the series, like I did, otherwise you’ll spend the whole book flipping back and forth wondering what you’d missed out on. For newbies to the series, much like myself, there is a glossary at the beginning which really will come in handy.

I’m a fan of tough-talking heroines who give no quarter and I definitely found that in Sin. For the literary-adrenaline junkies who prefer their romance novels spiked with loads of suspense and fight scenes you’re in for a real treat because this couple provide them in spades. Another thing the story isn’t short on is sizzle. Serious sizzle. I’ve since gone back to the start of the Demonica series and caught myself up to date, which only leaves me with one question…when’s the next one due out…?
