Review: Demon Bait #1 by Moira Rogers

Cover Image
Demon Bait
Book One of - Children of the Undying

Fifty years after a demon apocalypse devastated the world, summoners still bear the bulk of the blame. Marci lives in secret, hiding the gifts that could cost her a secure spot in one of humanity's underground cities, and access to their virtual world. After all, her chances of avoiding the genetic-testing lotto are better than her chances of surviving topside.

The bastard son of a terrifying incubus, lust heats Gabe's blood and sex fuels his magic. Innate charm and charisma help him navigate the cultural gap between the outcast town he calls home and the human settlements he infiltrates for trade. His latest mission nets him an unexpected asset--a summoner strong enough to soothe his darkest needs.

Trust a half demon, especially one who uses a lockdown to trap them together? Not in this lifetime. Yet Marci can't resist Gabe's offer to see her safely to a selective outcast settlement where she can live without fear. The journey alone is as dangerous as the way Gabe makes her heart race, but it could be her one hope of a real life.

If only she could be sure Gabe's telling her the whole truth...

I obtained the above information from Ms. Moira's website!

I was given this book for my honest thoughts, so let's get started shall we....

This is kinda a short story... And if you know me, you know the drill. I do not judge books bases on size of the story...

Ms. Moira is a very talented author and she is one of my favorites. So, when I was asked to review Demon Bait, I was excited... but then...I noticed it was on the side of Sci-Fi and that is not my particularly favorite genre... But, I knew that as far as my reading has gone so far, Ms. Moira has NOT disappointed me... So, I knew I had to read this no matter what. I will start off my saying that Ms. Moira can make me want to escape into her world any day of the week! She is just that great.

Now that I have said that this is Sci-Fi, I will tell you that this is a great book. It is not so Sci-Fi that you will get lost in the world of which you read. It will also not bore you to death. This is an interesting and very intriguing story...

Things sometimes are not what they appear to be and you will find out that "people" are not always what they say they are. Marci lives in a world where she has to pretend or at least blend in with the humans in order to survive... But she is not quite human... She has the blood of a summoners running within her body. And in her world it is getting more difficult by the day to blend in with the humans... But when one man shows up and offers her salvation... Does she accept it knowing that the life she knows will change forever... Or does she stay where she is and live on borrowed time. But when Gabe shows up and offers her the freedom she has always sought after, does she take him up on the offer or tell him to take a hike!

Gabe recognizes what Marci is right off the bat and the magic that lives within him stirs.... The basic need to protect her at all cost may eventually cost him the one thing that his soul has wanted... A woman who is worth fighting for.

This truly is a great story between two people who eventually have to decide if what they feel is real or magic... If you want to find out what happen to Marci and Gabe, you will just have to pick up the book! Because believe me, their little journey is worth the read! I hope you enjoy! And I can't wait for book two to come out! I would love to see more of Trip! =)
