ARC Review: Legacy of Temptation by Larissa Ione

Eva Tennant, like everyone at The Aegis, hates demons. But she loves her job as Deputy Spokesperson for the global demon-slaying organization, and she’s excited to be in the running for Chief Spokesperson. All she has to do is not screw up the two-week exchange program with The Aegis’s rival agency, the Demon Activity Response Team. But things go horribly wrong when a murder turns her into a fugitive from justice and puts a demonic target on her back.

Logan, son of the Horseman of the Apocalypse known as Death, has dedicated his life to fighting demons alongside his colleagues at DART. He loves fighting, females, and his pet hellhound, Cujo. What he doesn’t love is The Aegis, whose leadership attempted to slaughter him at birth. Understandably, he balks when he’s ordered to protect an Aegis Guardian responsible for the deaths of his friends. Really, he’d rather feed her to Cujo.

But when an old enemy rises from the ashes, Eva and Logan find themselves giving into temptation even as they sacrifice the things…and people…they love the most.

It seems like forever since we've had a new series from Ione, and I have to say it was well worth the wait. Last book that I loved this much of hers was Reaper. I still think about that book often. If this is how the whole series is going to be we are very lucky readers.

 I went into this story not sure what I thought of it. Would it be another were they fight each other the whole time because of their differences, or would it be that they fall for each other too quickly. I'm happy to say that neither happened. Okay, some of that happened. They often spoke about what the each believed of each other, but I liked that even though they both believed differently they respected each other enough that they could act like adults.  

I also worried what would happen to all the past characters of these kids. I was happy to remember that as supernatural's they are still alive and kicking. 

Right away I enjoyed both Eva and Logan. I like how they clicked with each other even when they knew that they shouldn't. Even though Eva dislikes the demons she treats they well unlike most of the other people in her group. 

So much happens within this story. First you kind of get a look at what's in for the supernatural's of the series and what they are up against. It's not just one thing either. They are being hit by all sides and will have to work together to come through it all. 

Legacy of Temptation had so much happened in it that I want to talk about but feel it would ruin it for you guys. The story is very fast paced and moves. It moves so fact that I didn't want to put it down and ended up reading late into the night so I could finish it. 

If you enjoyed the last two series of her that happened in the same world as these then you'll love this one. For me I would start in the beginning and read both the other series though. Yes, this story stands of its own but there are people who are brought up including Logan's family that you'll want their stories too. Not to worry ones you start reading you'll get lost in the series and won't stop until you are done with them all.
