Book Description:
Being captain of his own rescue ship is the kind of life Captain Liam Synar always dreamed of living. Being a master of his family’s hereditary demon was never in his plans because his brother had been trained for the purpose. Yet what choice did his father have when Conor's evil came to light? Reluctant or not, Liam is the only Synar left to rule Malachi. Now his exiled brother hunts him to capture the demon while Liam stays on the run and saves Peace Alliance ambassadors in his spare time. As if that isn’t enough trouble to handle, his mate, Ambassador Ania Looren, now unknowingly hosts his family’s demon inside her body. Liam sent Malachi into her to save her life after Conor’s men almost killed her. And though Liam hadn't wanted to, there had been no choice but to abandon her two years ago. His plan of keeping both her and the demon safe from Conor had worked, but his success at hiding what he'd done has finally reached an end. His next rescue has to be his estranged mate before Conor finally figures out the truth.
After accepting only one mate in her long life, Ambassador Ania Looren is now wishing the number had remained at zero forever. Mating Captain Liam Synar is turning out to be the worst mistake she ever made. Something happened after Liam abandoned her, something more than just the pain of losing her chosen male from her life. Something about his absence has stripped away the peaceful enlightenment she struggled years to achieve. Now she can’t meditate, can’t pray, and her compassion for other creatures seems to be dying. She is becoming again the kind of person she’s spent her existence trying not to be. On top of that, she’s been accused of murdering three males who attacked her and her family. She doesn’t even remember what happened that day. Now Liam is back and demanding she go with him to his ship. What choice does she have? Ania reluctantly agrees because it’s a better fate than being arrested and put through social reconditioning on her planet. The half life she’s been living for two years is no more worth keeping than her mating commitment to a male who obviously hadn’t wanted her after all.

My Review:


I received a copy of The Demon of Synar for an honest review.


Captain Liam Synar and Ambassador Ania Looren were bonded and supposed to live hundreds of years together. Instead all that changes when Liam’s brother escapes his exiled prison and sends assassins to kill Liam and his demon Malachi. Instead Ania throws herself in front of Liam so save him. Liam made the decision to send Malachi his demon to heal and keep Ania alive. When Ania is healed Liam goes away promising to return for her but never does until her court trial. When Ania and her family were attacked Malachi came to the rescue and killed the men intended to harm her. Now facing trial Liam knows he has to step in and take Ania on his ship. Showing up seemingly out of nowhere to two become to realize that they knew nothing about each other and both must decide if the two years apart is worth forming a future together.

Wow! The Demon of Synar was nothing like I imagined. I loved the world while at first a little confused on the structure of how the world functioned, the entire theme was simply amazing. I loved the demon factor and meeting Malachi was nothing like I thought. Liam was annoying but in an understandably cute sort of way. Ania is definitely a strong woman with loads of experience and an easily likeable personality. There are secondary characters that also get their pov’s told in the story but they aren’t the main focus. Gwen to me is a tad on the annoying side but I can’t wait to find out what kind of character she’ll grow to become throughout the story. Zade is definitely sexy sounding especially since he’s a siren.

All in all The Demon of Synar is an amazing story that will leave readers wanting more due to its’ impeccable writing, amazing characters, and suspense! Cannot wait to read the second installment and I hope everyone checks this futuristic sci-fi fantasy novel out soon!
