Mark of the Sylph by Rosalie Lario
Date Read: April 2013
Half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.
Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way. Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword.
Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.

First Thought When Finished: These Demons of Infernum have a kidnapping fetish but it always turns their worlds upside down. As it should!
Story Thoughts: This is the 2nd book in the Demons of Infernum series and each story draws us further into the world. I really enjoy the series overall. I look forward to seeing how each of these brothers contribute to saving our world. The story is solid, the mythology well laid out, and the action is pretty fast! I think the pacing was a little off in the middle but otherwise very entertaining!
Character Thoughts: Rosalie Lario writes good characters. I really liked Maya! She was strong, mouthy, and smart. She had a lot thrown at her in a short amount of time. She had to change her world view on demons and I think she did it with just the right amount of trepidation! Taeg, you wanted to trust him and then you wanted to kick him. He annoyed me and then I wanted to root for him. I think he was a great Alpha male that got blindsided by a spitfire. Served him right. We got to see the other brothers and I am really looking forward to their stories in the future!
Final Thought: I will be counting down to the next brother’s book because so far these have been fun afternoon reads that end up making me smile!Hosted by Kelly (http://paranormalbookreviews-kelly.blogspot.com/) and Amanda (http://onabookbender.com/)
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
