Book Review: The Demon You Know – Barbara Elsborg

The Demon You KnowEzra grew-up in Hell and has no memories outside of it. Nobody likes him and he’s yearning to get out and never to return to this tortured life. When he was told the reason he’s in Hell, he was beyond himself and believes that he’s really doomed for all of time.

Roman, leader of policing the paranormal in the UK is consumed by his past. An angel who thinks he’s a failure. When he meets Ezra, instant attraction ensues between them but when he found out Ezra’s true nature, things became far more complicated than a simple hook-up.

What could one sacrifice for love? Is there a chance for an angel and a demon to be together?

I absolutely loved this one! I loved the whole deal about “Angels” policing the paranormal on earth. Ezra’s condition was a tad heartbreaking – what he’s been through all his life in Hell until Roman came along. I loved that we get to see Inigo and Micah again from Bloodline! Inigo’s still awesome and it was such a pleasant surprise that Micah and Ezra have something in common! Real cool!!!

Their situation was both hopeless yet as the old adage go – love truly conquers all.

At the end, I was waiting for a more detailed “reprimand” towards Daniel to be delivered by Archangel Michael but I have a feeling that there’ll be more from this series.

Again, what a fantastic read from Barbara Elsborg!

About The Author
Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.
After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they were to write.

Book Review: Bloodline – Barbara Elsborg

BloodlineThere’s something about smart-ass vampires that always get me incredibly turned on. Bloodline has that to offer with Inigo who does tattoos on supernatural skins. When he was “forcefully” commissioned by a faerie king and brought him to Faerieland – he knows that he’s in very big trouble. Then he was thrown into a cell with Micah whose goal is to save his sister and family. Together, they tried to end the king’s oppression but ofcourse, things don’t always go as they planned…

This book was a very good surprise as my very first Barbara Elsborg book. It was highly recommended by a friend [thanks Riina!] and I must say, I was so happy that I took that recommendation. There are a lot of things happening in the story and a lot of characters as well. Although there was a first book before this, I didn’t mind having to read this first. There was no confusion with the flow of the story and there was enough backstory to easily relate with the characters.

As I’ve mentioned, Inigo’s probably the most bad-ass vampire ever! Like not in a Bruce Lee bad-ass but in a sorta quirky bad-ass way! I just totally loved him! Micah’s character was equally lovable and their banter was just sexy, funny and altogether too adorbs!

The story itself was as vibrant as its characters, the plot thick and that conclusion makes me want to yearn for more Inigo and Micah! Seriously guys, this is an amazing book!!!! Please don’t let yourself missed out on this one.
