About CIPHER:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series…

 

It’s been seven months since Cipher, an Unfallen angel who straddled a razor thin line between good and evil, woke up in hell with a new set of wings, a wicked pair of fangs, and a handler who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous. As a laid-back cyber-specialist who once assisted guardian angels, he’d been in a prime position to earn back his halo. But now, as a True Fallen forced to use his talents for malevolence, he must fight not only his captors and his sexy handler, but the growing corruption inside him…before the friends searching for him become his enemies and he becomes his own worst nightmare.

Lyre is a fallen angel with a heart full of hate. When she’s assigned to ensure that Cipher carries out their boss’s orders, she sees an opportunity to take revenge on those who wronged her. All she has to do is appeal to Cipher’s burgeoning dark side. But the devastatingly handsome fellow True Fallen has other ideas — sexy ideas that threaten to derail all Lyre’s plans and put them in the path of an approaching hell storm.

Danger and desire explode, even as Cipher and Lyre unravel a sinister plot that will fracture the underworld and send shockwaves into Heaven itself…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do. **

“Ione has made a major name for herself with her amazing Demonica series.”
~ Romantic Times Book Reviews

 

 

Lyre watched Cipher try to get his powers and wings under control for just over twenty-four human hours.

It hadn’t gone well. His wings seemed to have minds of their own and his fallen angel gifts were powerful but unpredictable, like natural disasters spawned by a child’s imagination.

Finally, after he exploded a tree with a superheated stream of blue light and nearly fried himself with the blowback, she called down to him.

“You hungry?” she yelled. “Because I could eat.”

He let out a frustrated shout accompanied by a stomp of his foot, and a crack appeared in the ground under the sole of his boot. A deafening boom and a slow rumble started up, and within seconds the crack lengthened and began to widen as the walls collapsed and chunks of earth tumbled into the fissure.

That couldn’t be good.

“Run!” she shouted

He sprinted toward her, away from the growing gap. And then, suddenly, he spun around and ran toward it.

“Cipher! No!” What the hell was he doing?

She extended her wings, ready to go after him as he leaped across the fissure. He wasn’t going to make it to the other side of the sheer cliff face. Not if his wings wouldn’t work—

His great wings flapped, lifting him easily skyward. He banked and soared in a glorious, elegant arc. A shout of pure joy rang out as he flew toward her, reminding her of the excitement she’d felt the first time she’d tried out her fallen angel wings. Hers had taken a year to grow, but it had taken only minutes to get them working. Cipher had to be thrilled to finally have his under control.

Folding her own black leather wings against her shoulders, she watched him come in for a landing, but as he did, one wing went rogue, freezing in a closed position. He clipped a tree and went into an unrecoverable spin before hitting the ground and tumbling to a stop next to her.

She coughed at the resulting cloud of dust. “That was graceful.”

He eyed her from where he lay sprawled in the dirt. “Tell me you got that on video.”

She didn’t want to be charmed, but she laughed anyway. Humor was something she missed since entering Sheoul. No one had a sense of humor here. And those who did seemed to have found it puddled on the floor of a torture chamber.

“No such luck,” she said.

“S’okay. But I’ll bet it would have gone viral.” Wincing, he shoved to his feet and tried to push his left wing into the retraction position. “I don’t get it. I can’t control these things. It’s like they’re fighting me. They don’t feel right.”

They didn’t look right, either. Marred by what seemed to be scars and ragged edges, they weren’t like any newbie wings she’d ever seen.

“Hmm. Maybe they were damaged by the restraints.” She moved around behind him, silently admiring his broad, muscular back. It would look even better with scratch marks from her fingernails after a long, sweaty round of sex.

Michel’s Review

It’s hard to believe the Demonica Underworld Series is still going strong after eleven years and 21 Books & Novellas. Readers have taken the adventure to the underworld and witnessed the battles between the ruling demonic hierarchy as well as the near end of the world. The Four Horsemen have made their presence known and the Apocalypse almost came to pass. Some of Heaven’s warrior angels and fallen angels are desperately trying to hold the world as we know it together while keeping Satan and his minions at bay. The only positive thing happening within both worlds is the fact that Satan has been imprisoned for over 1000 years in an inter-dimensional prison. There are only three angels who hold the secret key to release him from his prison. Azogoth, the grim reaper, who is in charge of Sheoul-gra is one of those angels. Releasing Satan would be the end of humanity along with the end of the world.

There is a dark sinister plot within the realms of hell and Sheoul-gra to release Satan. Two of Satan’s faithful followers, also fallen angels, are carrying out a plan to bring Azagoth to his knees and force him to surrender the key. They have kidnapped one of his fallen angels to gain access to secret information in order to force Azogoth to surrender to their will.

Cypher is a brilliant fallen angel who works in Sheoul-gra for Azagoth. His job is maintaining records and data within all the realms. Cipher not only writes the computer codes but he can also hack any secret codes available in all realms. Bael and his brother Madoc believe they have the perfect incentive to force Cypher to break Azagoth’s secret files. They have recruited fallen angel Lyre to seduce and break Cypher.

Lyre is a fallen angel for a reason. She wants revenge against certain residents in heaven. Her only hope is working for the evil fallen angels in Sheoul to get what she wants. What she didn’t count on was the goodness radiating off of Cypher. No matter how severe the torture is, he never breaks. She’s starting to rethink her stance and regrets her actions after she fell. The longer she is around Cypher the more she wants to help him. Time is running out. They need to get to Sheoul-gra and warn Azagoth. They need to stop the evil at all costs even if it damns their own souls for eternity.

Love is the only thing that makes makes hell bearable. Love is the only thing that will give them the strength to escape.

Escaping is only a reprieve… the war is coming. Evil may try to defeat Azagoth but they don’t call him the grim reaper for nothing. No one messes with Azagoth or those under his care!

Larissa Ione has kept the Demonica Underworld fresh and exciting. Every time I think this series is close to an end she throws in a whole new twist that makes the Demonica world expand. This complex series has dynamic characters that are intense, charismatic, sexy, humorous, and downright scary. I can’t wait for Reaper to unleash on October 15, 2019. Everything we thought we knew about Azagoth is just a blip on our radar. He is coming to claim our hearts and souls. I am not running… he can take me down his fiery path.

EXCERPT :

Cipher threw out a hand to warn Lyre off. His control sucked, which he proved as a fireball shot at her from the palm of his hand.

Fire engulfed her, demon-faced flames that laughed and bit at her. No! Oh, shit. He felt her screams all the way to his gut as she fell to the ground and writhed in violent agony,

Soretay! Stop!” He yelled commands in Sheoulic as he rushed toward her, but his words were useless.

He dove on top of her, covering her with his body. He tried to wrap his ugly-ass wings around her, but the fuckers didn’t behave, instead fanning the flames, beating the both of them as they flapped uselessly.

Then, for no reason he could figure out, the shrieking apparitions flickered out. Lyre went limp beneath him, her exhausted, panting breaths puffing hot air against his neck.

“Wow,” she rasped. “That was unexpected.”

He pushed himself up on one arm and looked down at her. Scorch marks streaked her face and her clothes were singed. The hemline of her shirt was completely gone, leaving her flat belly exposed, a smudge of soot forming a crescent under her navel.

He wanted to clean it off with his tongue. Too bad she was playing for the wrong team.

You’re playing for the same team now.

No he wasn’t. He might be a fallen angel, but not by choice. And, until evil took him over completely, he wasn’t in league with them yet. And he’d never play for Bael the Seriously Unstable. Right now he had no choice, but once he figured out these new powers, he was going to get the fuck out of here.

“You can let me up anytime now,” Lyre said softly. “Preferably before one of your new powers incinerates or melts me.”

“Right.” He jumped up and offered her a hand.

“Thanks, but no.” Eyeing his hand like it was a viper, she pushed to her feet and backed away from him.. “I’m just going to watch from…over there.” She pointed to a bluff in the distance. The far distance.

It was probably for the best. With little to lose, he was going to test his limits and push his boundaries.

And boundaries? Well, those were something he’d never believed in, and for once, that little personality flaw was going to work for him instead of against him.

I love the whole idea of the Cooking With Books tours, because, not only do we get stories about characters that we love, we get some kick-butt recipes to go with them.

 

DINING WITH ANGELS is the latest collaboration of a popular romance author, in this case Larissa Ione, and Suzanne M. Johnson, creator extraordinaire of recipes perfectly paired with characters and storylines.

 

Because I like my dishes like I like my leading men, I went for the Spicy Food collection from the chapter featuring Harvester and Reaver, and, because chocolate is never a bad idea, the Dark Chocolate Chipotle Brownies.

 

One of the great things about the recipes in DINING WITH ANGELS is that many of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. I even had the chipotle powder (did I mention that I like spicy?), which made these brownies a no-brainer.

 

 

 

The recipe is straightforward and simple, and these brownies are truly a one-bowl endeavor. If you’re wanting chocolate and spice, and you want them fast, this recipe is for you.

 

 

Literally half an hour from pulling out all of my ingredients to delectable dessert.

 

 

I have a bit of a disclaimer, and that is that I am a purist, so I did not frost the brownies. Honestly, they were absolutely delish as is, but, if you’re a fan of a brownie with icing, it is included in the recipe. No matter which way you like them, though, make sure to grab a copy of DINING WITH ANGELS and try this, and all of the other fantastic recipes for yourself.

 Michel’s Review

The Demonica Underworld series by Larissa Ione is one of my favorite paranormal series.  She has created a complex world of other worldly species with a very complex hierarchy in their individual species as well as their overall role in the underworld. Not only do the species have a role in their world they also have a role in the human world.  Some races are evil and others are heavenly.  They are the races that keep the balance in the world.  They are the key to the survival of the world.  Within each species there is also good and bad among their race.  It’s their job to protect the race, keep the balance, and complete their tasks.

Razr was a warrior angel until he screwed up his task.  He was kicked out of heaven until he could recover his precious gem, a gem with power, and return it to heaven with the other two gems that create the balance of power.  He is not a fallen angel nor is he a heavenly angel.  He is in limbo with his wings bound until he can redeem himself.  He was sent to the Grim Reaper to train the earthly angels in the arts of war.  He punishes himself daily for his mistakes.  He is also punished by the heavens on a regular basis to remind him of his misdeed.

When he senses his gem has resurfaced, he’s ready to reclaim it and find the other lost gem.  Little does he know that the keeper of his gem is another species he was unaware of.  He also doesn’t know that his gem is the life force for the new owner of the gem.  Like everything in this series, there has to be a balance.

Jedda is a gem elf.  Her life-force stone is the key to restoring Razr place in heaven.  To give him back the stone would be suicide.

Razr and Jedda are finding that even though they should be mortal enemies they are deeply attracted to one another.  When an evil fallen angel forces them to hunt for an artifact from hell as well as the two heavenly gems, both their lives are in danger.  They need to find a solution that will defeat the fallen angel, restore the balance, and find a way that they can remain together alive, well, and happy.

Once again Larissa Ione had my full attention.  I have been intrigued with Razr for quite awhile.  His mysterious presence and dynamic personality had me wondering what his real story was.  It was a doozy and did not disappoint.  I am so happy that he found his place in life with someone who truly will love him just as he is.

Z is the latest in Larissa Ione’s incredible Demonica Underworld Series brought to you by the amazing team at 1001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy of this sexy new novella toady!

 

Z- cover

Amazon ** Paperback

About Z:

Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she’s been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he’s losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago…

As an emim, the wingless offspring of two fallen angels, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper — by any means necessary — she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z, who seems determined to thwart her at every turn. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…but can any vow stand the test of time?

Z- RDL Teaser 2

 

 

EXCERPT:

Inside Sheoul, the demon realm sometimes called Hell, evil was everywhere.

It dripped off the sides of the sheer rock walls in streaks of black acid that ate into the stone with a hiss. It wafted through the humid air on tendrils of mist that reeked of sulfur and decaying flesh. And, as Vex watched, it oozed like toothpaste from out of a fissure in midair that only people like her could see.

Her purple-tipped black hair, already short and spiky, stood even more on end as the thing squeezing out of the fissure, a dead demon’s soul, popped free of whatever realm and mystical enclosure it had been inside. The toothpastey glob took a transparent, vaguely humanoid shape, but its glowing crimson eyes were sharp and clear. A malevolent wave of rage and hate rolled off the soul, and Vex backed away, even though escape was impossible for her.

She was what her parents had called a daemani, a demon soul magnet, a person to whom souls stuck like glue. According to them, most daemanis couldn’t prevent it from happening, and that was a serious pain in the ass. If a demon died near Vex, not even the Grim Reaper’s personal daemanis, creatures called griminions, had a chance to collect the soul before it got sucked into her and stored as a glyph on her skin.

The demon shrieked, a sound only she or another soul-sensitive person could hear, as it struggled to keep from being sucked into the prison of her body. In a futile attempt to avoid the inevitable, she fled, her booted feet nimbly negotiating the rock shard-strewn ground that was all too common in this part of Sheoul.

But no matter how fast she ran, every time she looked over her shoulder, the distance between her and the soul had decreased. Closer. Closer.

Michel’s Review

Readers have been waiting for Z’s book in the Demonica Underworld Series.

It’s not easy being the Grim Reaper’s personal assistant.  How does one get that kind of job?  What are the qualifications?  For starters one must be a fallen angel.  The fallen angel has to have a certain code of ethics, in other words not corrupted to the point of no return.

Z willingly became a fallen angel when his beloved, betrothed Lauren fell from the ranks of heaven.  The problem was that by the time he fell, Lauren had been killed.  He has been searching for her soul for over a hundred years.  Working for the Grim Reaper seems to be a logical place to find her.  If she has been reincarnated, her soul is bound to show up.  And it does but not like Z expected.  Her soul is being held prisoner by other demonic souls and being housed in an emim.

Vex doesn’t know much about the order of the heavens and hells.  The only thing she knows is that she is a magnet for souls.  Right now she has five souls taking residence within her body.  One of them is evil and slowly it’s tearing her apart, not to mention the other souls.  The soul trade has declined and her only hope is the Grim Reaper.  Vex is in for a surprise when she goes to make a deal with the Grim Reaper.  There’s a fallen angel that has captured her attention.

Vex and Z are in for a soul reckoning reunion that could be destroyed by the evil soul before it begins.  Vex is housing Laura’s soul.  Z will have to choose between Laura and Vex.  It may not be a choice at all.

Larissa Ione has created a very complex world in the Demonica Underworld series.  Even though the world is complex, the reader can always count on an adventurous, action packed, red hot paranormal romance that’s loaded with snarky dialogue and fun characters.

I highly recommend this series.

Michel’s Review

Larissa Ione is one the most gifted writers I have ever read. She created a world that is beyond your expectations in the paranormal world. She flawlessly blends these paranormal beings into characters that have very real emotional traits, strengths and weaknesses, and unique individuality that ensures that the reader connects with their entity. They are as vulnerable and as sensitive as most people while being extraordinary beings with unbelievable powers. There is always a balance of good and bad, divine and evil in each of them. They are powerful beings controlling the universe, defining the heavens and hells.

Each and every book in the Demonica Series/ The Lords of Deliverence is a gripping, thrilling, breathtaking adventure. So many things happen in each book. There is always a fight for balance in the world . There are always manipulators that shake the balance. Each character has to find their place in that battle, whether good or bad, and fulfill their role so that the balance stays where it should be. In the midst of the overall struggle, the character is struggling with themselves as individuals. They are trying to find their personal happiness and love. A way to make their personal life better.

These characters have personalities that are larger than life. They are badasses with a sense of humor, insecurities, elevated ego’s, souls with compassion, strong sense of honor, and sensitive hearts.

Their world is intricately woven to blend in with the human world. They have careers that are comparable to human careers. They also have their roles in destiny and fate.

Revenant is by far the best book in the series yet ( of course I say this with every release in the series). Larissa reached deep and let his world explode!

It was revealed in the previous book exactly who Revenant really was. We were led to believe that he was a fallen angel but he is so much more. He is one of the most powerful beings in both worlds. Now that his memories are restored, he’s beyond pissed. He has spent his entire life as an assassin for Satan without a clue to who he really was. He’s bitter. He wants answers about his past and wants to determine where his allegiances should lie now that he knows the some of the truth. The other thing he wants is Blaspheme.

Blaspheme is a doctor at Underworld General. She has a strong sense of right and wrong. She is compassionate and devoted to those she loves. She is very protective of those she loves. She does not want people to get hurt because of her. She is known as the false angel but she is something else. Like Revenant, there is more to her than meets the eye. She is the child of an angel and fallen angel. Her kind is hunted and destroyed. She is fighting against time. Her true identity is about to be revealed. This will put her in danger from both Heaven and Hell.

Rev is very persistent where Blaspheme is concerned. The more she rejects him, the more he pursues her. Their arguing, snarky banter, and insane conversations will have you laughing out loud. Their emotional moments will give you goose bumps. Blaspheme gave Rev the one thing he has never felt or experienced in his life. She has given him love.

As their love blossoms, their world begins to spiral out of control. Everyone has their own agenda in their world. The battle between the Heavens and Hells will always go on, but for Revenant and Blaspheme it won’t matter. They have each other. They have what means the most in any world. They have love.

Larissa Ione has outdone herself once again. Revenant was amazing!
