Book Review: Forged In Fire by Juliette Cross


Book Description

Genevieve Drake has never been the helpless kind of girl, has never needed to be rescued. That is, not until her twentieth birthday when some dude nearly chokes her to death in an alley and a hot stranger splits the guy in half, rips a monster from inside, and incinerates it into ash.

The hot guy? Jude Delacroix—Dominus Daemonum, Master of Demons. Now her guardian, whether she likes it or not.

But she’s seriously beginning to like it.

The dude choking her? One of many demons from the underworld trying to abduct or kill Genevieve. As the prime target of the demon prince, Danté, she has no problem accepting Jude’s protection.

Why Genevieve? She’s a Vessel, one born to serve the Light but can be corrupted and used as a weapon for darkness. She had no idea this world even existed. Now, she just wants to survive it.

My Review

Genevieve Drake just turned 20 years old and that's when her Vessel powers start and demons can see what she is and they start hunting her, wanting her Vessel for themselves. When a demon tries to kill her, it's Jude that comes to her rescue and kills the demon. From that point forward, her life is not her own. 

Jude is the Master of Demons and when he rescues Genevieve from a demon, he takes it upon himself to train her, teach her and keep her safe from the demons who want her for themselves. 

Genevieve doesn't truly understand what kind of danger she's in after she's attacked the first time. Jude didn't really explain things very well at first and so when someone comes up to her that looks like Jude, she doesn't resist him at first. But he bites her and she realizes that he wasn't Jude. Dante is a dark prince and wants Genevieve for himself. He comes after her a few times and the danger is serious. 

This is the first book in the trilogy and it starts off pretty good but I found myself getting a little bored towards the end. I like Jude but wanted to know more about him and his past so I hope we get more information as the trilogy goes on. I did like how Genevieve has real world problems along with learning her new powers. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
