REVIEW: Sin Undone by Larissa Ione




HER TOUCH IS DEADLY

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence. 


HIS HUNGER CAN'T BE DENIED


Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.

After how awesome the first four Demonica books were (or at least, the fourth was; it's been a few years since I read the first three), the "conclusion" to the series was a huge letdown. I use the word conclusion lightly because the series is being continued in the spin-off type thing featuring the four horsemen of the apocalypse, so it isn't really much of a conclusion at all.

I didn't like Sin in the previous book, and my dislike of her only continued in Sin Undone. She wasn't my kind of character at all; she was a huge Debby Downer, whiny, and constantly blaming everyone else for absolutely everything. She didn't make me hate the book necessarily, but she definitely didn't make me love it, either.

Con was likeable, but eerily similar to the Seminus brothers. In fact, most of the book was like that; likeable, but somewhat bland and repetitive. I'm definitely glad that I read it, but I don't think that it's at all a representation of the quality of the series as a whole.

Overall, Sin Undone was a very forgettable book, but I would still recommend it to anyone who has already started this series because it's an important segue into the spin-off series as well as a conclusion to some of the story arcs left dangling in the previous book.
