We are so excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Larissa Ione’s HADES! HADES is a novella in Larissa’s Demonica Series and part of the 1001 Dark Nights Collection. It is exclusively available as Amazon Kindle and Paperback. Grab the latest installment in this sexy series!

 

Synopsis

A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrates his prison and unintentionally starts a riot. It’s easy enough to quell an uprising, but for the first time, Hades is torn between delivering justice — bestowing or mercy — on the beautiful female who could be his salvation…or his undoing.

Thanks to her unwitting participation in another angel’s plot to start Armageddon, Cataclysm was kicked out of Heaven and is now a fallen angel in service of Hades’s boss, Azagoth. All she wants is to redeem herself and get back where she belongs. But when she gets trapped in Hades’s prison domain with only the cocky but irresistible Hades to help her, Cat finds that where she belongs might be in the place she least expected…

Review

I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day and blog tour promotions.

This series has evolved from being about demons to the four horsemen of the apocalypse to the biggest entities of heaven and hell. All throughout, this series has been widely loved and read by fans and readers. Hades is a great addition to the series.

Hades is the jailer of hell. He looks after hell seriously. Cataclysm is a impulsive fallen angel who unwittingly helps in a plot to start the end of days. As her punishment, she has to serve Azagoth in hell, so she can earn her wings back. Hades and Cat have very good chemistry. Both of them have strong personalities which would normally clash in any other main characters, but, with them, it was good.

I like that the main conflict in the book was created to fit a novella length story instead of a complicated plot and stuffing everthing else possible into a limited number of pages that the book can accommodate. I also enjoyed the heroine because she reminds me of the saying, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” which is kind of a pun because hell was exactly where she was.

This was an entertaining read, and fans of Azagoth will love this too because he and Lilliana were a huge part in the story. Like always, the hero and the heroine in this Demonica installment never fail to capture a reader. It’s a very good book that just makes me love the series even more.

Excerpt

Her luxurious mink-brown wings were gone, sliced off in a brutal ceremony, and with them, her source of power. She totally understood why an Unfallen would cross the barrier between the human and demon realms to turn themselves into True Fallen and gain new wings and new powers. But was the evil upgrade worth it? Cat didn’t think so.

“Cat!” Azagoth’s voice startled her out of her thoughts, and she nearly dropped the tray of dirty dishes as she looked up to see him striding down the hallway from his office.

In the flickering light cast by the iron wall sconces, he didn’t look happy. He also wasn’t alone.

Hades, Azagoth’s second-in-command and the designated Jailor of the Dead, was walking next to him. No, not walking. With the way his thigh muscles flexed in those form-fitting black pants with every silent step, it was more like prowling. His body sang with barely-leashed power, and she shivered in primal, feminine response.

Son of a bitch, Hades was hot. Hard-cut cheekbones and a firm, square jaw gave him a rugged appearance that bordered on sinister, especially when paired with a blue Mohawk she’d kill to run her palm over. But then, she’d kill to run her palms over all of him, and she’d start with his muscular chest, which was usually, temptingly, bare. Not that she’d complain about what he was wearing now, a sleeveless, color-shifting top that clung to his rock-hard abs.

She tried not to stare, but really, even if she’d stood in the middle of the hall with her tongue hanging out, it wouldn’t have mattered. He never looked her way. He never noticed her. She was nothing to him. Not even worth a glance. Those cold, ice-blue eyes looked right through her. And yet, this was a guy who laughed with Lilliana, pulled pranks on the other Unfallen who lived here, and played with hellhounds as if they were giant puppies. Giant, man-eating puppies.

Azagoth stopped in front of her. “Cat? You okay?”

She blinked, realized she’d been lost in a world of Hades. “Ah, yes. Sorry, sir. What is it?”
