Demon’s Fall by Karalynn Lee

Demon’s Fall by Karalynn Lee
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

She was an angel at the gates of Hell.

When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.

Knowing he must gain Jahel’s trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place—retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding—he even offers to help her complete her mission.

Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse…

Demon’s Fall is a story about love and redemption.  It also has a modern twist on Snow White.  Jahel follows the soul of a young girl she was watching to Hellsgate and ends up captured herself.  She is bought at market by Kenan, who sees the angel as a challenge.

Kenan is used to woman falling all over him because he is an incubus.  He seduces women for their souls and those coins are used as payment in Hellsgate.  He is intrigued by Jahel and believes her soul would be a nice additional to his collection.  The only catch is that she has to voluntarily give him her soul.

Jahel can’t believe that Kenan is treating her kindly and even offered to help her find the lost soul she is seeking.  His actions are completely out of character for a demon and she doesn’t know what to make of him.  She is grateful for his help and realizes it’s the only way she will be able to help the girl.  She can’t cause harm to others or do anything that goes again her Angel principles, but Kenan isn’t bound to the same principles she is.

As the angel and incubus search for the lost soul, they realize that other things are in play that could be cataclysmic if not stopped.  They have their hands full but still manage to fall in love through it all. 

I enjoyed Demon’s Fall and give it 3½ Flaming Hearts.
