Book 1 in the ‘Demons of Fire and Night series’
First off, the memory loss plot device is overused and typically I would just skip right over any synopsis that features those words, BUT, this series manages to twist it into something new and interesting.
She’s forgotten her past. Too bad her past won’t return the favor.
Ursula can’t remember a single thing from before three years ago, so she has to keep her life simple. All she wants is to earn enough money for rent–and maybe a bit left over for a new pair of boots.
But on her eighteenth birthday, all hell breaks loose… quite literally… when a hellhound shifter shows up in her kitchen. Kester’s lethally gorgeous, and he’s come with a terrifying message: Ursula owes her soul to a demon.
No one seems to care that she doesn’t remember striking that deal.
F.U or Former Ursula as the character calls her ‘pre-memory loss’ self has mad skills and has somehow made a bargain with a Hellhound in exchange for the gift of fire.
Such great character dialogue and this series weaves in so many questions that you have to read on to know the answers.
At the end of the first novel, Ursula has even less of an idea about who she is. The mythology of this book is brilliant and carries over well into the second book (Spoiler: which takes place on the moon BTW.)
A must read! 5/5
