Book Description

The handsome devil Devi meets to arrange a smuggling run through earth’s demon-infested wasteland has a predatory silver gaze that defines tempting. Too bad she has one cardinal rule: never mix business with pleasure.
One look at Devi almost distracts Zel from the life-or-death mission at hand. He can’t afford to trust the safety of his outcast settlement to just anyone, especially a wild-haired hauler with something to hide. Not to mention a hot, tempting package like her could be the cleverest trap his enemies have ever set.

Better than book 1 Jan. 3 2012
By Stephanie G (Reviewer for Paranormal Haven) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Decades after the demon apocalypse, Devi and her crew make a living hauling supplies and people through dangerous lands. When they're attacked while on the way to make a delivery, Devi is saved by a man that is as dangerous as he is handsome. Zel hasn't been able to get the beautiful Devi out of his mind since their first meeting. The demon blood that runs through his veins demands he takes her but his human side knows he must put the well being of his settlement first. With unrest among his people and enemies ready to attack, Zel will take a chance with Devi and hope he lives long enough to claim her.

In book one of this series, we only get a little taste of Zel's character but it was enough to make me want to know more about the leader of the Rochester settlement. Half demon and half human, Zel is all business when it comes to taking care of his people. Not an easy task when citizens have constant concerns and there's talk of wanting different leadership. Zel's demon blood has him craving for a bloody fight or sex and he's worked hard to keep this under control. Control that Devi threatens just by being in the same room with him. I loved Zel because he's so committed to his people and protecting them but you can also feel the more dangerous side that's lurking just below his surface, waiting to get out. His fight scenes were great but it was the explosive moments he'd share with Devi that had me hanging on his every word.

"Sweet Devi, you could make a man sin and a demon pray."

I just love that quote from him. Like Zel, Devi also takes the responsibility of taking care of her crew seriously. Her rule of no mixing work with pleasure doesn't stand a chance against Zel. Devi is no wilting flower and just the woman strong enough to take on all of Zel. I would have liked to know a little more background on her but I was happy with what we got. Zel and Devi's intense and sexy relationship was amazing. These two make a really memorable couple.

In Demon Bait, we're first introduced to a land where demons roam the earth and people have been driven into underground cities. They connect with one another through a virtual world and anyone caught in a city with mixed blood is thrown out and left to fend for themselves. The lucky ones find outcast settlements like Rochester and people like Zel to help take care of them. In Hammer Down, we go into the settlements and learn what it's like living underground. As with the first book, I didn't care for all the technology and would skim parts that would talk about the giant virtual computer network. It was watching how these people lived and seeing that the biggest threat didn't always come from demons but from other humans that had me hooked. I was also glad to learn more about demons and how they ended up on earth. The world in the Children of the Undying series really opened up in this book and I hope to see more of it in future books.

With Zel and Devi leading an intriguing cast of characters and a story that sucks you in, Hammer Down takes this series to a new level. I really hope to see Zel and Devi in future books. I'd recommend this to fans of sci-fi, paranormal romance. If you're not really into all the technology jargon then you may want to try out Moira Rogers Southern Arcana or Red Rock series' first.

I don't have very high expectations for this book based on the genre, but I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and quality of this book. The characters were well drawn and believable, the plot was gritty, suspenseful and fresh and the writing of a high quality. I also liked the way the romance was light on the usual cliches. This was definitely a romance, but the sci-fi/fantasy plot was just a strong if not stronger. Compared to Demon Bait (Book 1 of Children of the Undying) this book is on a whole different level - and it's much a higher level. Highly recommend.

By Cheap and Lazy - Published on Amazon.com

This book is an excellent example of what I look for in small press. Love the fresh feel, raw, off-the-page characters, and tech talk. Exceptionally tightly written, fast-paced, tough heroine, dangerous hero, romantic plot balanced well with the rest of the story. I was especially enamored of the love scenes: steamy, but not wholly explicit. The world-building was excellent, except that I felt disadvantaged at the start. I stopped reading after the (action-packed) first chapter to check the author’s website in order to find out if I really needed to read the preceding novella. She/they said it was really only a prequel and this book stood on its own. I’m not so sure. I did manage to suspend my confusion and just embrace the story until things became clearer (rather like I did watching “The Cloud Atlas” movie, if that helps). Although the ending was quite satisfying (a sticking point for me), I do hope another book in the series gets published. There were a number of intriguing secondary characters from which to choose and the epic story arc remains open.

The story was difficult to get into, not enough background on the characters or the history of this different world. It did end being a good read ended well.

Loved this book! The story was a little complicated ...and the backline didn't come in dribbled throughout the book. But that was good as it made sense..especially if the series continues. Zel is a complex character and so is Deni. Seemed a little long. like it had a false ending then kept going?
