Synn, a demon, carries extraordinary magic and power, but there is more within her than she dreams. Kidnapped as a child, her captors murdered her family and forced her into training as a warrior assassin.
When an assignment goes horribly wrong, she finds herself at the mercy of the friends and family of her intended target. Offering valuable information in exchange for protection, she gains her freedom, but it is not without its challenges.
Gavin Shaughnessy is the publican at his family's Irish pub. He is certain Synn is meant to be his and isn't bothered by her past. He must find a way to convince her their future together is stronger than the dark memories that haunt her dreams.
When her past comes calling for revenge, will their love survive the raging inferno she brings down upon them? Or will the searing path of destruction destroy all they hold dear?
This fifth book in the Demon's Witch series focuses on Synn and Gavin. There are things mentioned throughout the story from earlier books, but the author does a great job of giving enough information so that a new reader isn't lost, and she does it without info dumps, which is a huge plus for me. For this book, Synn, a demon, is looking for redemption for her past. All she wants is a life, just like anyone else. Of course, it's not going to be easy, especially when someone from that past wants to destroy her. Gavin is a gryphon and knows Synn is meant to be his mate from the beginning. This pair does have great chemistry and the story is full of twists, danger, action, and plenty of magic. There are a few lags in the story that could use some tightening up, but other than that, it's an enjoyable, fast-paced read with characters that pulled me in and had me rooting for their happy ending. All in all, a good addition to the series.
