Also, secondary characters in some books get their own story. Each book is it's own story with a beginning, middle and end with no cliff hangers. I would suggest you read the first book first as it sets up the world, after that you can mix it up if you want. (less)

“You made me need you. Crave you.”

Hell to the yeah! This was amazing. AMAZING!!!

Once again, Larissa Ione has taken me to a place where a few authors have been able to. I can't really put into words or can’t even come up with a review that will do this book justice.

I loved Lore. I loved Idess. I loved Eidolon. I loved Azagoth. Gosh, I loved everything about this book!

Lore is half human, half Seminus. He was given an order from his master to kill Kynan, a Marked Sentinel and his three brother'
5+ stars – Paranormal Romance

Reading one of Larissa Ione’s Demonica novels is a naughty good time, like getting a pedicure and going shopping with your best friend on a hooky day from work, eating the best Vosges or Godiva chocolate, getting flirted with at the grocery store by a hot guy when you’re in sweats and wearing no makeup, or having a happy hour with your best gal pals and laughing and talking about men and sex over Mexican martinis. Yep...Ecstasy Unveiled is deliciously wicked fun alr

Larissa Ione hit the ground running with this one, and I was along for the ride. What can I say? I loved Lore. I felt so bad for him. Ms. Ione brought him to full, vibrant life for me. I do love my assassin characters, so Lore was already in there for me. However, it was his vulnerability and his sense of loneliness which opened the door of my heart fully. I wanted to beat up Shade and Wraith for being mean to him. He needed their support, and they could hardly judge him, considering that they h ...more

Can an angel fall in love with a demon?

Lore is another of the Eidolon’s brothers i.e. a Seminus half-breed demon and his job is to assassinate people without really caring who will be dead. He is not your usual seductive Seminus demon. Having a cursed right arm, he cannot really have sex with females and he needs to take care of himself in order not to die.

His last job is to kill Kynan the marked sentinel, ex Aegis agent and a person Lore actually likes. Unfortunately if Kynan does not die, Sin

The 4th book in the amazing Demonica series and guess what? I EXTREMELY enjoyed it! Didn't disappoint me, and i think this series never will.

Lore and his twin sister Sin have been enslaved by the demon Detharu for years, forced to act as assassins on his behalf. Lore has finally been offered a chance to escape though, he just has to make one final kill and then he will be free. Failure is not an option, especially when the penalty would be the death of the sister

Plot: Lore, an enslaved assassin has to kill Kynan or his twin sister will be killed. Seems like an easy job to Lore, except Kynan has a guardian angel, Idess and if her charge dies she won't get her angel wings.

Lore was a great character, chill and very go with the flow, deadly, and so vulnerable. I loved his vulnerability and desire to be loved, have family more than his sister. His demon gift is the power to kill with a touch. No one but his siblings are immune to his killing touch. That has

Dear Lore,

If I didn't love Annie so much, I would definitely steal you from her and hide you away somewhere she would never find you. Alas, my love for her stops me from abducting you. I know you are upset about this. Try not to be too crushed by this loss.

Besides, I don't think I could handle Shade's jealousy anyway.

Hugs Not Drugs,

This book has been the most emotional one for me thus far in the Demonica series. Ecstasy Unveiled has pulled my emotions all over the place with all the emotiona

What can I say, what can I say. I love this series, I love this book, and would be willing to make some questionable deal with the devil for a little bit of Lore. I love me some Sem boys, and this book was all kinds of explosive. I don’t know what it says about a person when you are willing to go head to head, with four brothers. I would take them all on, they are so delicious, soooo “mmmm, mmmmm good”.

I don’t want to spend too much time explaining what this series is

My heart goes into pitter-patter mode when I think of the Demonica series by Larissa Ione. Hot demons, great action, humorous and the kind of smut that makes you break out into a sweat. Ecstasy Unveiled did not disappoint – I was completely entertained throughout the story.

Lore is a Seminus demon who needs sex to survive, problem is, if anyone touches his glyphs or “dermoire” on his right arm, they drop dead instantly. Kind of a buzz kill in the bedroom. In the previous book in this series, Pass

I completely loved the chemistry between Lor and Idis. This was probably my favorite couple since Idolin and Tayla. Lor is a newfound brother for the Sem brothers, half human, and has this tortured vibe that is very much like Zsadist from the BDB series. He’s been forced to become an assassin to protect his twin sister, Sin, (another great new character) and is assigned to kill Caimen. (Sorry if I’m butchering all these names. Audiobook.) The conflict in this is great because of course the Sem b ...more

★★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I know I’ve heard Paul Boehmer narrate before, I just can’t remember which book. Or maybe it’s that his voice rings a bell from all the movies and T.V. he's been in. I can swear he did the voice of a robotic or artificial intelligence entity, because that keeps tickling the back of my mind.

Nevertheless, I like his sexy voice while reading the forth installment of Larissa I

The story centres around Lore, half human/ half Sem demon who’s working as a assassin. His next job leads him to Idess, an “angel in training”, who’s job is to protect the person Lore is contracted to kill.

And the EVERYTHING happens!

The story has multiple POV’s so we get the feels from everyone. And it’s just perf

I love doing rereads of books I loved. This one is no exception. I think I loved it even more the second time around. ECSTASY UNVEILED is such an amazing book, this entire series is amazing.

I already said it but I'll say it again, I absolutely adore Larissa's writing style and this spectacular universe she created. Reading her books is always a pleasure, they transport me into this world where everything is possible and where sexy-as-hell demons exist.

I love all the characters in the Demonica/L
Wow, another great book in the Demonica series. Ms. Ione manages to write sexy fun stories that keep me on the edge of my seat wondering what is going to happen next.

Lore is a half Seminus demon half human assasin. He owes one more kill to his master before he is freed from a contract he entered into to help his twin sister Sin. The problem is that the target is a friend of his three newly found demon brothers but with the only other option being his sister's death, Lore goes after Kynan where h

Lore is in a bind. He has to kill his target otherwise his sister Sin will be killed, but by saving his sister he will lose the brothers he has just found, and worse he will have to kill his target's beautiful protector Idess to do it. But who is setting this impossible situation up, tearing up the Sem brothers and dragging the UGH down into choas.

Do you know how sometimes you don't like a book because you had so high expectation for it that once you get to read it you are not able to enjoy it as much as you would have like to?
Well that was so NOT the case with this book. I had higher expectations for it than for any other book I had in my TBR pile, and let me say that it was a huge 5 stars rating!

As all the other books in this series, this 4th installment does not disappoint. I was hooked since page one, it only took me less than a day t
I’m going to give this one a 5- Star rating because Lore was a master assassin with a heart of gold(just don’t let him hear you say that) and Idess was a badass warrior also with soft center.

Reading about these two just gave me joy and amongst all the other messed up things that happened both to them and their people in this book, they still managed to give me joy.

Quicky review! LOVED it! Best of the series so far but again I say that after everyone of them. The next book is going to have its work cut out for it to top this one. I'm really excited to get to the next one but this was so good I'm actually not going into it expecting much.

This series just introduces a ton of characters and the series just keeps building. It is done flawlessly. And the steamy in this one was HOT. But for me it felt more real and I don't know if it was better or if it is becau

I think this is Ione’s best yet. I must have had one of my infamous brain farts because I had no idea that Idess was an angel until she was mentioned. As you can tell, I ran out and bought this book and immediately started reading without even reading the back blurb. Yes, I was that excited.

And the awesome continues!

Book 4 in the Demonica series brings us the story of Lore… the newly discovered brother of Eidolon, Shade and Wraith. An enslaved assassin, he is brought screeching into his brother’s lives when his next target hits very close to their hearts. To complicate matters, Lore’s target has an angel protecting them – Idess, a sexy, sassy female who knows how to kick some ass.

I absolutely adore Lore! Tortured, cynical, and seemingly indifferent to all that goes on around him,
I was browsing the bookstore when this cover caught my eye. I read the back of it and figured I'd give it a try. I wish I would have known it was part of a series first. Unfortunately this book does not stand on its own well at all. There were so many characters running around that I was irritated. I found Lore's newly discovered brothers especially irritating. I suppose if I had read their books first I would have had some investment in them and might have been glad to read about them again. Ob ...more
Holy. Crap. Ecstasy Unveiled was AMAZING!! Lore is half Seminus and half human and his mixed lineage has given him a strange gift: if he touches someone with his right hand, even a light or accidental touch, that person drops dead immediately. Things happened to him and his twin sister that led to them being enslaved as assassins. Lore has one last kill to do in order to free himself and his sister from the assassin master. His final target? Kynan, a charmed human whose life he saved in the prev ...more

“Tayla cursed under her breath. "I was just explaining to Eidolon that Sin is a Smurfette."
Wraith swung his big body around to study Sin with blue eyes that were very different from Shade's, E's. and Lore's. Sin's, too. "Nah. Smurfette is way hotter."
"What the fuck is a Smurfette?" Eidolon was seriously getting annoyed now.
"There's this cartoon called The Smurfs," Tayla explained, slowly, as though Eidolon were the child here.
"They're these little blue people, and they're all male. But one day a female shows up. She shouldn't exist, but she does."
Eidolon considered that for a second. "How did she get there?"
"An evil wizard named Gargamel made her," Tayla said. "In a lab or something."
"So you're suggesting that an evil wizard made Sin?"
"Of course not, silly. I'm just saying she's a Smurfette. A lone female amongst males."
Eidolon frowned. "Did the Smurfette mate with the males?"
"Dude." Wraith grimaced. "It's a cartoon.”
“Congratulations on the new spawn, by the way."
"Well," Gem said, "that was better than what Wraith said." She lowered her voice and did an imitation of Wraith. "Way cool about the fuck-trophy.”
