people are being slaughtered by a malicious dragon; so
desperate times call for desperate measures. She secretly
journeys to the isolated castle of Lord Vaz, a half-demon
who was cast out by her people. He is also the only one
capable of saving them all. In return, Vazís price is one
night in his bed. Ella knows there is no turning back for
her once she commits to this. Before the night is done,
Ella and Vaz will be forever changed.
One of the
best things about a story is when thereís an underlying
message or premise. Demonís Bargain briefly
examines the scars and viciousness of bigotry without being
preachy or directly pointing figures. The message that was
the hardest to digest (whether real or fantasy) is that
there are people who will never change or grow beyond their
worse traits and beliefs.
passion bring hope and forgiveness to Vazís cold existence.
Ellaís purity, self-sacrifice and courage remind him of
everything heís lost and hopes to regain. Together they
evolve. Their hearts are bolstered by love and a clearer
understanding of whatís important. Aside from the strong,
meaningful lesson, this sultry and delightful tale could
melt an ice storm. I hope this author will bring back Ella
and Vaz in a sequel to resolve a couple of unanswered
questions, not that Iím complaining. A good story always
leaves you wanting more.
