Half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.
Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.
Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.

After reading the first book (my review is here) I was both intrigued and desperate to get reading the second book. Then I saw the cover for the second book - hot damn! You could probably get away with not reading the first book as these do seem to work as a standalone book too, although I would suggest you read it at some point.
When Taeg finds out that he must find the sword to destroy the book that can end the world. Luckily he finds Maya who is half librarian and half demon slayer - what a mix! Of course (!) he kidnaps her to get her to help him (again, of course!) and soon enough Maya is struggling with the feelings that she is having for Taeg.
I loved this book and it's a great follow-up to the first book and I really found Taeg as swoonsome and sexy as I believed him to be. Maya was a kick ass female with curves (yay for curves!) and there was a definite girl crush going on there. I found their whole ongoing relationship was very intriguing and very sexy. Because of this I did find the other bits of the story a bit boring as I just wanted to just read about these two.
I can't wait to read about the next brother in this series... Yummy!
