Half human and half demon, Allay has finally embraced her new life. She works as a bartender on the Lower East Side, where she eases and draws energy from her patrons’ pain. She’s always tried to stay out of demon politics, but then she finds herself brokering a truce among New York City’s most powerful demons. Allay’s biggest concern is the demon Dread, who will stop at nothing to gain control of every demon – and every human – he can.

But with assassins around every corner, Allay is driven underground. In the abandoned tunnels beneath the city. Allay finds sanctuary among the desperate misfits and loners who have no other place to go. Still, it’s only a matter of time before the combatants in the growing war – especially the sexy and dangerous demon Ram – tempt Allay back above the surface to join in the fight…

Review: Allay's finally done what it takes to ensure her survival and also had some painful truths revealed to her. Now she's got people (human and demon) trying to kill her at every turn and she's forced to make a startling revelation of her own. She wants to trust again, but it seems she's losing everyone she cares about. Will Allay be forced underground for the rest of her long life or will she make a stand for what she believes is right?

This is a great second book in this series. At times, I wanted Allay to fight when she chose not to, but she didn't let me down in the end. I read this in one sitting and was glad to be transported back into Allay's world - where demons feed on human emotion and no one is what or who they seem. I loved the newer characters that were introduced in the last book, but get fully fleshed out in this one. There were parts that made me laugh out loud (for which I received strange looks at times) and parts that were heartbreakingly poignant. If you haven't yet picked up this series, I highly encourage you to do so - and soon!
