Release Day Review: Legacy of Temptation by Larissa Ione

Series: Demonica Birthright #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Eva Tennant, like everyone at The Aegis, hates demons. But she loves her job as Deputy Spokesperson for the global demon-slaying organization, and she’s excited to be in the running for Chief Spokesperson. All she has to do is not screw up the two-week exchange program with The Aegis’s rival agency, the Demon Activity Response Team. But things go horribly wrong when a murder turns her into a fugitive from justice and puts a demonic target on her back.

Logan, son of the Horseman of the Apocalypse known as Death, has dedicated his life to fighting demons alongside his colleagues at DART. He loves fighting, females, and his pet hellhound, Cujo. What he doesn’t love is The Aegis, whose leadership attempted to slaughter him at birth. Understandably, he balks when he’s ordered to protect an Aegis Guardian responsible for the deaths of his friends. Really, he’d rather feed her to Cujo.

But when an old enemy rises from the ashes, Eva and Logan find themselves giving into temptation even as they sacrifice the things…and people…they love the most.

Legacy of Temptation kicks off the Demonica Birthright series with a bang, introducing a fresh batch of demon-slaying characters. As the first book in this spinoff from the popular Demonica series, it brings in the next generation of protagonists.

The story revolves around Eva, a spunky Aegis Deputy Spokesperson, and Logan, the son of Death, injecting new life into the familiar Demonica universe. While I didn't connect with Eva as much as I hoped, the story makes up for it with a reunion of familiar faces from the original series, giving it a nostalgic touch.

Being the starting point of the Demonica Birthright series, Legacy of Temptation teases with the offspring of characters we know and love, promising exciting stories down the line. The world-building is solid, throwing in multiple 'villains' to keep the plot engaging and full of suspense.

This book manages to balance romance, humor, and action, making it a fun and immersive read. Emotional scenes are well-woven into the story, adding depth to the characters and their relationships.

As the kickoff to the Demonica Birthright series, Legacy of Temptation not only brings a compelling plot but also stirs up anticipation for what's next. With its mix of romance, humor, action, and emotion, it's a promising start that has me excited for more adventures in the Demonica Birthright universe. It's just the kind of read that rekindles the joy of paranormal romance.
