Outcast and exiled, the demon Tarrik Nal-Valim has long been forgotten by the world of humans. At least, so he thinks.
But when he is summoned as a last resort by a desperate sorcerer, it seems as though his past has caught up with him. The sorcerer is Serenity “Ren” Branwen, the daughter of Tarrik’s former master—and friend. Though she seems cold, driven, and ruthless, Tarrik can tell that Ren has her back against a wall, and he is compelled by ferocious powers to obey her.
As their world sinks into a terrifying maelstrom of murder, intrigue, and insurrection, Tarrik is forced to serve Ren’s arcane designs—plans that, if they were to succeed, would resurrect unimaginable power and could destroy Tarrik’s entire race.
But as events unfurl, the lines between demon and master become blurred, and Tarrik realizes that Ren is not what she seems. To prevent utter devastation, Tarrik may have to surrender what he values most: a chance at redemption and an end to his exile.

First and foremost I really liked Tarrik Nal-Valim, he tells it like it is. He’s a snarky demon who’s been around the block a few times. When he is finally called back to serve someone, he’d really hoped that they forgot all about him. He finds him face to face with an old master of his daughter who’s in a bit of a pickle. The sparing between Tarrik and Ren is fun to see. They both are strong people who are both in positions they don’t want to be in. But necessity is demanding it of them at this time. It takes time and mistakes for them to realize that they really should work together instead of fighting to be the one controlling the situation. That makes this a fun book to read, and one that pulls you in so you cant put it down.

I really enjoyed this book very much and look forwards to others in this series.
