Book 2 in the Demons of the Infernum series

This book pretty much blew my mind and there was so much awesome-sauce to talk about that I don’t think I could even cover it all. Lario isn’t from one of the big publishers and while I hate to stereotype usually the best books come from the big names. Lario, however, writes one of the most compel

Rosalie Lario, hmmm... well, I think she's quite brilliant. After reading Keegan's story, Blood of the DemonI sent Rosalie a note and asked for more Taeg. She promised that she was going to give him to me and she did. Oh, how she did. This was by far one of the best paranormal reads I've had in a while. I loved the fiesty heroine, Maya and her kick-butt attitude.

My Review:
This is book #2 in the Demons of Infernum series. My review of book #1, Blood of the Demon, can be seen HERE. I really enjoyed book #1, but OMG, I think that this one was even better. This world is so incredible and thorough and the four brothers are nothing short of fabulous. I adore how close they are without being all up in each other's business. I also really love how committed they are to their women by extensio

Librarian, Maya Flores, knew demons walked the earth. Not metaphorical demons, but real hell spawn. She could see them. She saw them massacre her family as a young child and she is on a mission to exact vengeance on the demons that prey on innocent humans. Taeg, demon halfling and council cop, is on a mission of his own. Feeling he has to atone for past mistakes that have endangered his brother Keegan’s new family, Taeg is searching for a way to destroy the Book of the Dead, a magical tome that ...more

Rosalie Lario continues the story of her four half demon brothers from Infernum with Mark of the Sylph, giving readers a fun, exciting and sexy ride into the world of others with cocky second eldest brother Taeg.

Feeling guilty for letting down his eldest brother Keegan and new sister-in-law Bree, who is now expecting, Taeg is on a mission to find a mythical sword that may be the only weapon strong enough to destroy the Book of the Dead and save Bree and her unborn child’s life. While doing resea

I can feel Glass giving me "the look" because of the cover. Yeah, I know babe it's really catchy. In my defense I first saw the old covers with less muscles on them. Still the most important thing is the story, right? Anjana asked me to join this tour and I accepted but I was afraid that it'd be typical paranormal story and too adult. Luckily for me it was neither.

This second installment of the Demons of Infernum series picks up a few months after Blood of the Demon left off. Byrnn and Keegan are happily married and expecting a baby. But everyone is on pins and needles, waiting for Leviathos to come after the Book of the Dead. Taeg has an idea to stop the threat. If he can get his hands on Excalibur, they can destroy the book and eliminate the danger to Brynn.

When an old rival threatens Taeg's family, he's determined to save the day. He must find the sword and destroy the book that can create an army of dead. In doing so he frees his pregnant sister-in-law from its hold. Easy? Maybe it would be--if the sword wasn't glamoured, and the book wasn't spellbound to his sister-in-law.

Remember your local librarian? Quiet, unassuming, business-like, that pretty much describes Maya Flores, part-time librarian and college student. Ever wonder what your local librarian did after work?

The book/story had me right up to the origin of the sword.
A really entertaining couple set for hotness in the bedroom and puppy eye love. Mix a room full of hybrid half demons, who are incredibly handsome, add some interesting shifters and hey presto what can go wrong.
Well at this point the author decided it would be a great idea to combat the most evil of demon items with a mythical sword that has been in so many books I can't even begin to count them. The storyline went from Urban fantasy to A

This 2nd book was just as awesome if not more awesome then the first book. I love how so far we are getting a different brother in each book. They are part demons who are not looking for love but they seem to find it..

Taeg and Maya, I think are going to be my favorite couple no matter how many books come out. Even in the first book I really liked him. And I think Rosalie found him a perfect match. Maya is stronger then most humans and she totally can keep Taeg on his toes. She was pretty bad as

It was an accident, really. He didn't mean to kidnap the woman! He just wanted to talk to her, convince her to help him. Taeg had no idea the gorgeous Maya Flores would go all Buffy on his ass and try to slice and dice him. Hell, he hadn't even known until just recently that she could see through the glamour that he and his demon brethren use to blend with humanity in this dimension.

Talk about yummy. The blurb seemed interesting and nowhere did NetGalley say it was part of a series so I just dove right in.

In Lario's intriguing series these creatures aren't monsters that have escaped from hell. Here, they are beings from other dimensions, who have temporarily relocated here on earth.

"Every worthy hero must make a sacrifice."

You’d think being a rare, magic-sensitive human would be a good thing, but for Maya Flores the ability is only a constant reminder of what she has lost. Seeing through the glamour that disguises the creatures walking in our midst, has made Maya believe that they are a danger to humans and must be eliminated. This leaves her ignorant of their human attributes and contributions to a society that most just want to be a part of. Their inherent danger is al

I didn’t read the first book of this series, but I didn’t need to. This book was able to explain everything in a way that didn’t really seem redundant to those who had read the first, but was enough for those of us who didn’t read the first book to know what was going on. There were a few things that I was confused on, but by the end of the book everything was explained.

I loved this follow up to Blood of The Demon. Taeg is a great character and it's nice to see him getting his own HEA. He still feels guilty for not helping his brother save Brynn straight away in Keegan's book and for bringing danger in the form of Leviathos down on the family. So he's trying to set it right by looking for Excalibur, the sword of Merlin so he can destroy the Book of the Dead and free Brynn from the danger it poses, espeacially as she's now carrying Keegan's child.
