Creed is a Godseeker assassin who is investigating stories
of missing children and his investigation leads him to an
isolated ranch. Creed is half demon but has lived his life
as a human, during this time after the demons have finally
been banished; it isn't a good idea to be anything but
human. It is safe to say this DEMON CREED has a mission and
nothing will change that.
Nieve, once a beloved daughter is now a slave to a cruel
man, all because of a demon seduction and half demon child.
When Creed comes to the ranch seeking answers her master
demands she find out why he is really here. She will do as
he demands if he will tell her what he did with her son. It
all backfires when she realizes that Creed is of demon
blood and she is afraid of him. In the aftermath, Nieve is
soon free to search for her son but finds the world is just
as cruel as her old master was and must put her trust in
one man the ... DEMON CREED.
DEMON CREED is a fast paced, action packed, sexy book that
takes the reader into a western style world gone crazy.
Author Paula Altenburg takes us back into her Demon
series after the demons have been banished and everyone is
trying to recover after centuries of fear and danger.
is part demon but he has honor, a strong sense of duty and
a thing for the underdog. When we first meet Nieve she
seems scared of her own shadow but as her memories return
and she and Creed begin to travel together you see the real
woman. She's smart, tough and will do whatever it takes to
get to her son. They make an intriguing couple though both
are very busy dancing around the other. He will continue to
honor his duty as an assassin and if that means a side trip
from the search so be it. She will continue to distrust him
for his blood though once she gets to know him she begins
to understand the complexity of this man. They both come to
realize that what matters most is the love they feel
growing for each other.
I enjoyed DEMON CREED even with the
bigoted attitudes toward women and anyone not entirely
human ... that seemed to add to the post apocalyptic feel of
the storyline. I also liked seeing people from her former
books coming into play especially with Airie (Demon's
Daughter) playing a strong role against the bad "guy". It's
a shame DEMON CREED is the final book of this series I had
to see more of this world in future books.
As a highly skilled assassin, Creed is used to being called
upon by the Godseekers for help. But in a world just
recently rid of demons, the task to now track down
half-demons isn't as easy as it seems. Not only is Creed
himself a secret half-demon now going against his own kin,
but when he discovers numerous innocent children are being
kidnapped in the mountains, he second guesses his mission.
Justice should be for all, not just for demon spawn.
Living in a world of cruel men, Nieve has no memory of her
life before her enslavement. But when Creed comes around
asking questions about missing children, the memories of her
half-demon son - and the demon who tricked her - come
flooding back. Now, Nieve will do anything to get her son
back...even if it means putting her trust in Creed.
Together they set out to find the Demon Slayer who can help
them. Little do they know the demon who fathered Nieve's son
is also searching for Nieve, and he's teamed up with the
kidnapper to draw her out. Creed and Nieve must race
against the clock to save the children, their hearts, and
