About The Book

Beware the demon prince who’s sick and tired of running.

Federico Duomo is dead, to begin with. But this is only the first bit of Shax’s problems resolved. Powerful crime lords and an obscenely wealthy oligarch are still determined to destroy him and his crew, and Fluffy’s original owner may be coming after the Brimstone now, too. It would be splendid to be able to take on one thing at a time.

Adding to the external conflicts, life on board the Brimstone has only grown increasingly stranger. Shax has no idea what to do with the seven partly human children that Heckle rescued from slavers. Heckle himself has grown short-tempered, even with Mac. Someone from Julian’s past catches up to them on Barbary. It’s enough to put a demon off his cinnamon buns.

Shax isn’t panicking, though. In fact he’s had it up to his handsome royal nose with the people he loves having to live in constant fear. The fox has turned at bay and the Brimstone’s enemies are in for a shock. The demon prince of thieves is coming for them.

The Review

Fabulous Finale! We were introduced to this growing cast of characters almost 6 years ago. This is a series where you need to read every single word. The world building is phenomenal and is perfectly entwined with a sweet and sexy romance. This last book in the series is what all final books aim to become.

It is a great story with some unexpected moments that had me gasping and in tears-joyful tears.

Shax is still my favorite. His capacity for love grows as does his ability to adapt to the changes in his life.  Without giving away spoilers, I can only say that family means so much in this book.

Angel Martinez rolled up any unanswered questions and put a sparkly bow on it.  There may be room for an extra novella if we beg….hint hint. 

I am seriously thrilled with how this series ends and I am still thinking about this book.  It is an amazing series and a definite must for romance and sci-fi fans.

In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
