Blog Tour: Demonic Pact

tour banner demonic

Sixteen-year-old Halfling Angel of Death Riley Scott is on a dangerous mission. To save her friend’s life, she must make a pact with the man who just tried to kill them both and break him out of the Celestial Prison, guarded by Angels of War—fearsome warriors who can squash her like a fly. If caught, she’ll be sentenced to eternity in that impenetrable prison. Riley will have to make deals with demons and her number one enemy, turn her back on her most loyal friends, and risk losing her family forever. Worst of all, her very existence is in the hands of her devious new allies.


 

I hadn’t heard of The Demonic Pact series before, but when I was invited to join the tour for the second book, I of course couldn’t resist reading the entire series. There are two books so far and I genuinely enjoyed both installments!

The Demonic Pact series follows YA heroine Riley as she’s introduced to a whole new supernatural world and her own role in what turns out to be a pretty epic adventure story. Now, we are technically celebrating the launch of book two, but I don’t want to give away too much since you REALLY need to read book one first in order to not only get to know the world, but to come to know Riley and the people she’s fighting for.


 

Read Book One, The Soul Thief

But when she sees the same girl at the hospital later, she knows she wasn’t dreaming. That’s when Riley learns her secret heritage and who she really is: a halfling Angel of Death.

Riley must come to terms with her new reality and supernatural abilities, but before she can do this, girls her age start dying in mysterious circumstances. It’s up to Riley to figure out why, what the innocent victims have in common, and what she can do to stop them.

Heart of Gold by Lilliana Rose

gold.pngVickie’s husband, George, insists she undertakes self defence lessons before starting her private eye business. George worries about her safety but doesn’t want to stop her from developing her newly found skill of solving mysteries.

The training sessions are difficult and Vickie is exhausted. Now that her and George have rekindled their love, Vickie is determined to find the time to keep the sparks flying between them as much as possible.

When her trainer is injured, Vickie discovers he isn’t entirely human, and has mechanical parts. But George doesn’t believe her. Vickie insists something untoward happening and she must investigate. Can she solve another mystery while maintaining the renewed spice between her and George?


 

I’m not sure what I was initially expecting from Heart of Gold based on the first book, but I certainly got more than I bargained for. Things with Vickie and George never cease to be interesting, and as I did find the writing for book two stronger than for Change of Heart, it is safe to say that this series has improved with the second installment.

While the world building elements are a lot of fun in this series, it’s the characters that really make this into an enjoyable read. Both the main characters and the people they surround themselves with never fail to jump off the page, propelling the plot forward in ways you wont always anticipate.

I recommend starting with book one, Change of Heart.
