Blurb: Belail took another drag from the blood tinted clove cigarette, the puffs of putrid smoke swirling to show the chosen image again. “So, the former High Commander of Second Hell has finally set his heart on Raven White.”
Such pity that the dear Detective assigned to enforce supernatural and paranormal cases in Quebec would be chosen by this particular demon.
Bla’Gar is well… different.
Another drag, another puff. Relishing the new image of a chained Raven; withering in pleasure on Bla’Gar’s Hellfire bed.
Clearly a scenario that would keep Belail entertained… for now.
One to watch; intriguing to see at what lengths Bla’Gar would go to court the human Detective. And possibly… feasibly claiming the human’s soul for Bla’Gar himself?
Licking his lips Belail returned to the shadows from once he came. Scoffing his barbarous thoughts to the darkness. Though it would be fair to say that supers and paras aren’t the only ones that have teeth, claws and horns.
When Raven has a sneezing fit in a coffee shop, he steps outside to get away from whoever thought to bring their dog inside. But little does he know the cause of his allergies is the gorgeous blond man that follows him outside and then disappears. While investigating a case, he’s literally brought to the door of the mysterious man and what he encounters might just change his life completely.
I don’t think the blurb does a very good job of explaining the story. At least, not so far because with just this first installment, it’s more of an introductory and doesn’t really show much into the motivations behind Bla’Gar. Even so, I didn’t expect to be drawn in from the start especially considering how short the book was. It’s hard to really say much about this story without giving away a ton of spoilers and it doesn’t have much depth to it yet because of the length.
For now, I’ll just say that I’m very much interested to see where things go and there was just something about this story, maybe the way it was written or just the concept in and of itself, that has me jonesing for me and hoping that as it progresses, it becomes more complex and ultimately gains more ‘meat’ to its bones. I had one little niggle, though, I couldn’t help but wonder why Raven would sneeze so much just standing by Bla’Gar but when they were actually touching… he didn’t sneeze at all.
Still, in the end, I was enamored with the story. Once I started, I didn’t want to put it down and wanted to see what happened next. I’m definitely intrigued with this story and can’t wait to read more of Raven & Bla’Gar.
P.S. A huge selling point in this book is the fact that Raven looks (according to the cover) like Derek from Teen Wolf… and HELLO, that man is GORGEOUS!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
