I’m excited to bring you a spotlight and review of an amazing debut novel by Kat Daemon.
Title: Taming Darkness (Taming Darkness #1)
Author: Kat Daemon
Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 3rd 2014
Since he was sentenced to earth eons ago, Lucifer has always lived by three simple rules: Humans are toys that are meant to be played with, love is a useless emotion, and the only creature worth fighting for is himself. To him, nothing matters but his own enjoyment, whether it be manipulating those around him, or indulging in the sins of the flesh with Lilith. Then he found young, sweet, and innocent, Maria, who is everything that Lucifer detests. She has devoted her life to her one true love, God. Unable to resist a challenge, Lucifer sets his sights on tempting Maria away from his enemy. Disguising himself as Lucas Starr, he creates a world that not even Maria can resist. He never planned on having the tables turned on him. Imagine Lucifer’s surprise when Maria brings him to his knees and shows him a glimpse of heaven once more.
Blinded by his arrogance and an unlikely vision, Lucifer falls again, this time forgetting that some lines should never be crossed. When his greatest opponent, Michael, shows up, all Hell breaks loose. Will Maria be able to accept Lucifer for who he truly is, or realize what Michael already knows: some destinies can never be changed?
I was really surprised by how quickly this book had me drawn in. I think I expected a devilish love story where the antagonist is a mysterious villain. But when I discovered the story was told from the devil’s perspective, and when I saw how brilliantly the author created the mind of Lucifer, I was intrigued. Let’s be clear, Luc is certainly a devil. His malevolence is unquestionable. But he also comes across as very human, which I loved. Despite his wicked inclinations, he has human characteristics, like falling in love…with a NUN! If that kind of irony isn’t human, I don’t know what is.
There also seems to be a curiosity in him, a human tendency toward boredom, and an inner struggle that makes him feel so believable as a character.
I really loved this book and look forward to reading more from this talented author.
