Heart of the Demon by Cynthia Garner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So here we are at book three in the Warriors of the Rift series. I have to say at first the concept of supernaturals coming from some other dimension took a little getting used to. Now I have to say I am hooked. I love the different supernatural groups that live in Garners world of the rift.
Summary: Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world—or send it spiraling into chaos.
The next opening of the rift is coming—and its consequences will be deadly. A rogue group of human-hating preternaturals is planning an apocalyptic attack, but the Council of Preternaturals may have found the key to saving the world: Keira O'Brien, a fey with a long criminal record, whose empathic abilities once made her the queen of con artists. If she successfully infiltrates the dangerous faction, the sins of her past will be forgiven.
Keira isn't the only agent working against the rogue prets. Finn Evnissyen, a powerful demon with a dark lineage, is a hired assassin looking for a way out. If he stops the threat, he will finally earn his freedom. As the rift fast approaches, and danger escalates, Finn and Keira must discover if they're on the same side—or sleeping with the enemy
As this book starts we are only a few weeks away from the next rift and everything's changing. Tension is running high on Earth as humans prepare to have their lives potentially robbed from them. A secret organization is working to keep the rift open for even longer. Now the unlikely pair of a Demon and a Fae have been charged with infiltrating the group to try and stop them. The trouble lies two fold, one they must resist the urge to get to close to one another and two they must work together but never let on their own secret agendas.
This was a fast paced story with two fantastic lead characters. Their chemistry was fantastic, you could really feel the tension between them. Great characters and an exceptional storyline make this a must read for any paranormal lover!
