Review: Awakened by a Demoness by Felicity Heaton

Posted on June 5, 2016 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Reviews / 2 Comments

Awakened by a Demoness is an intriguing addition to the to the Eternal Mates series.  Although it is the tenth book in the series it can be read as a stand-alone.  So far each book in the series is based on characters that appeared in previous installments, however, in this installment, I was being introduced to characters I never met before.  Therefore, I was going in blind where this book was concerned.  However, I was not in the least perturbed as Ms. Heaton has proven time and time again that she has the ability to keep me glued to the pages of her books.  As such I expected no less with this installment.

This has proven to be one of my favourites in the series. I found it to be funny, romantic and action packed.  I have to admit it was shorter than the other books in the series, but it still packed a lot of punch.  In Awakened by a Demoness we meet two unlikely mates a demoness and an angel.  This was a case of opposites attract in every sense of the word.

Asteria is a 1,200-year-old demoness and a member of the second legion of demons. She is facing the prospect of being punished for failing her master, who was none other than the devil. However, he has granted her a second chance and this time there was no room for failure.  Her assignment was to find a half-breed (half angel and half demon) and convince her to join the forces of hell. Sounds easy right, well Asteria would soon discover that this may be her most difficult assignment as the heavenly forces were also searching for this supernatural being. They sent their best hunter, the Fifth Commander of the Echelon, for this assignment.  What made this rather interesting was that he was a demon hunter.

The interaction between these two beings made for an entertaining read.  They were times I found myself laughing at Asteria’s antics, especially when targeted at the angel. Watching them both trying to fight their attraction to each other was endearing. I was curious to see how their relationship would unfold. I knew that eventually they would end up together, but I never expected the manner in which it would come about.  That was an unexpected outcome, but I believe it added a bit more credibility to the story.

I loved the characters. Asteria was sassy, playful and had a great sense of humour.  She is not afraid to go after what she wants, be dammed the circumstances.  She is the complete opposite of the Fifth Commander of the Echelon.  He had had no name but was eventually given one by Asteria. Initially, he came off as haughty and detached.  For 400 odd years he was led to believe the beings of the mortal realm and other supernatural beings even more so demons were beneath him. However, as the story progressed Asteria had him questioning these beliefs. At this point, we see his true nature begin to emerge.

Awakened by a Demoness is a story of love and the sacrifices made as a result.  It was enjoyable from start to finish.  I am eager to find out what next Ms. Heaton has to offer her fans. If you love paranormal romance that features a variety of supernatural beings with unique story lines then you will enjoy this series.

    I have the first one in this series and keep telling myself I am going to start it soon but to many books and to little time. 🙁 This one sounds good and I am glad you liked it. Great review.
