Pippa Jay ã 1 REVIEW

A demon waiting to dieAn outcast reviled for his discolored skin and rumors of black magic Keirlan de Corizi sees no hope for redemption Imprisoned beneath the palace that was once his home the legendary 'Blue Demon of Adalucien' waits for death to finally free him of his curse But salvation comes in an unexpected guise A woman de. This is a hard book to describe It starts off almost fantasy like on a medieval type world without technology where the greatest fear is dark magic Into this scenario is introduced a woman who clearly does not belong uin is a traveler from far away really far away searching for the fabled Blue Demon but what she discovers is a broken male who is anything but demonic Keir is waiting to die but the red haired female just won t give up Breaking him out of a cell is just the beginning as Keir is transported from all that he knows to a life that he could never contemplate but uin saving Keir is uite literally just the beginning of this wildly twisting storyExplanations and world building are clearly not part of the authors plan There is no great information drop to ease the reader in and indeed we only seem to learn exactly what Keir does I fear that might frustrate some readers initially but implore you to keep going as the pay off is so worth it This is a complicated story that develops and it literally zips from place to place introducing characters and alien life forms that boggle the readers mindI started reading unsure really of just who and what Keir and uin are and I m still wading through those muddy waters Yet when it became of a sci fi adventure it really allowed the couple to grow Romance It would be easy to just say yes but of a connection that felt soul deep Keir s journey into the light is one that had this reader cheering him on Also his personal growth to become a man ready to fight for the woman he loves takes some beating I won t lie it is very complicated and not a story to dip into hoping to get saucy entertainment However if you want sci fi that engages your emotions unusual aliens and to finish a book smiling then I d happily recommend this book Just a uick word of caution though as the final few pages are hard to read and you might need tissues handyI was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest reviewFour and a half from me
