I really enjoy the Demon Outlaw series and I love that the author wrote the prequel story of the events that set the first book’s story in motion.
This one does chronologically fall before the first book, but for it to make sense and feel like it’s part of the whole, I’d recommend reading it after book one at least. It’s a table setter and not really something that feels self-contained though it leaves things on an ominous happy for now note.
It’s a quick one and quite simply tells the story of a goddess, Allia, and the Demon Lord she set out to entrap to stop the demons’ further destruction of the human world. Allia and the Demon Lord know from their first touch that they are meant to be. Both tentatively reach out and relish their secret times together. It is forbidden love and cannot stay hidden forever. A betrayer waits for the chance to destroy what is good for nefarious purposes.
As I said, this is a table setter for what comes after and definitely a fan pleaser for those of us who wanted to know more about those who played strong roles in setting stuff in book one in motion. It has a short description to get the reader up to speed about the backdrop and players and then there are a few passionate interludes leading to the crisis. Because of the brevity, I wasn’t as deeply engrossed in the story as I have been with the longer novels of the series. Still, it was good to get this important part of the series story. Personally, I found the Demon Lord one of the most engaging characters in the first book. Things in book one make better sense now so I would definitely recommend it to fans of the series.
My thanks to Net Galley for the opportunity to read this one in exchange for an honest review.
