Book Review: Demon Bound by Eve Newton


Book Description

A Seductress Demon, a cute Reaper, a hot Angel & the Devil himself
They are tested to their limits, but will love conquer all?

Imprisoned by the Devil for crimes committed on Earth, I suddenly find myself the center of his attention. He wines and dines me, but something sinister lurks under his intentions.
When the hot Reaper who can't resist me, helps me escape, an intriguing Angel decides to risk everything for me.

Will I manage to flee the pits of Hell with my Reaper to meet the Heavenly creature who claims he can save me? Or will I be stuck in the Devil's idea of happily-ever-after?

My Review

Axelle is a demoness seductress who was on Earth inhabiting the body of a female for too long. Demons are only supposed to inhabit a human body for a couple of months and then move on so the human doesn't start to realize what's going on. Axelle is known for breaking out of hell and coming to the surface a couple of times but the devil himself imprisons her when she is sent back to hell this last time. He doesn't plan on letting her get away again so he keeps her in a cage to teach her a lesson for a while and then he let's her out and gives her a job.  But Luc (Lucifer) starts to show her more attention and Axelle doesn't know what to make of it until he tells her he's picked her for a special task and one where she'll have to get through several trials, each one being the one that could end her existence if she doesn't get through it. 

When Axelle finds out what the end result will be after getting through the trials, she's horrified and with the help of an angel and a reaper, she escapes hell once again. 

We don't see much of the angel and the reaper isn't very likable but Luc was an interesting character for a while. Until we see what he actually wants and how many demons he's willing to sacrifice to get it. Axelle is not a likable character but yeah, that's because she's a demon and isn't nice. She likes chaos and bloodshed like a good demon would. None of these characters really snagged my attention because they are all so selfish and horrible, only out to get what they want. 

But my main problem with this book is how it just ended on a cliffhanger. Yes it's book 1 of a 3 book series but a little closure would have been nice. 

I give this book 1 out of 5 stars.
