Book Review- Lucinda, Darkly

Lucinda, Darkly
by: Sunny

This book is a take off of her Mona Lisa series and delves more deeply into the Monere version of Hell and the people who rule it.

Lucinda, the ousted child of the current King of Hell has forced herself to live on her own for centuries, in her own personal exile. She is shocked to come across a rouge Monere Stefan and is forced to take action when humans attack. As she attempts to understand the impossible, that he's attracted to her even though she is a demon, she is called away to take fetch another rouge Monere who happens to be hiding out on her land and ends up resuing him and another of his group.

She fights to keep the distance she has created with the rest of the world, but when she becomes responsible for and starts to have feelings for the men in her life, she has a hard time convincing herself its for the greater good.

I have to say that I enjoy Sunny's Mona Lisa novels, but I love her Lucinda books. Something about the character growth of Lucinda and the fact that she is constantly fighting her nature, makes her character extremely realistic and more personable.

I did wish that this story was a little longer or went into a little more depth when dealing with her secondary characters as they played such a pivotal roll, but I believe it was also that since they were so unchanging that it allowed her Lucinda character to grow as much as she did.

I give this book a 5 out of 5 for storyline/romance and a 4 out of 5 for bedroom steaminess.
