Review: This is the continuation of Heart of Darkness. Here we discover that Mal is Malphas, a demon. However, this demon has a soft spot for Jamison. When he oversteps the mark, revealing too much about the demonic world to carter, it’s Jamison who is threatened with punishment.
Seeking to protect his human, Malphas offers to accept punishment, although first, he has to go into Jamison’s dreams and punish the man he loves before returning to hell for his own penance and torture.
When he discovers he has been betrayed and demons are being unleashed, including one who will go after Jamison, he breaks free. He goes into the human world as a demon of earth and Jamison’s protector.
However, when Jamison wakes up from a coma intended by Malphas to protect him, he fears Mal.
This is part of a series and, like the first, ends with a cliffhanger. Unfortunately, I find it disjointed and even though I’ve read both 1 and 2, I don’t feel any connection with either Malphas or Jamison.
However, if you enjoy series, paranormal/demon, with a side dish of torture, this is one for you.
