Hades (Demonica #11.5) by Larissa Ione
Synopsis: A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrates his prison and unintentionally starts a riot. It’s easy enough to quell an uprising, but for the first time, Hades is torn between delivering justice — bestowing or mercy — on the beautiful female who could be his salvation…or his undoing.
Thanks to her unwitting participation in another angel’s plot to start Armageddon, Cataclysm was kicked out of Heaven and is now a fallen angel in service of Hades’s boss, Azagoth. All she wants is to redeem herself and get back where she belongs. But when she gets trapped in Hades’s prison domain with only the cocky but irresistible Hades to help her, Cat finds that where she belongs might be in the place she least expected…
Review: This was an enjoyable read. It was real quick, finished it in a day. Hades and Cat were great together; when they gave into their passion it was intense. The conflict was good and the plot line was never dull. I really like how it ended. I liked seeing hades get his happily-ever-after ending. Cat was a good match for him. As a “Hades” character, I think he could have been stronger, the Hades in Goddess of Spring (Goddess Summoning #2) by P.C. Cast was stronger. Hades is a character we all know and being who he is, god of the underworld, he could have been a bit more rough around the edges; but with that said, I did like Ione’s character. He was entertaining and passionate and easily liked.
