Liason is the first book in the Soul Bond series by Ambrielle Kirk. My review of this story will probably be as short as the book itself, but mainly positive. Leona, the Queen of a witch coven and Carrick, a virtuous demon who longs for a soul, share an attraction that burns hotter than the underworld in which Carrick resides. But what will they do when their respective predicaments threaten to keep them apart?
Liason does a lot of things well. It is sexy, fun, the conflict is engaging and the paranormal elements work well even to a paranormal romance (PNR) junkie like myself, but the short length of the novel really detracts from what could be a PNR series that could rival my favorites. I will definitely be doing some research to see if Kirk has some lengthier novels out there.
Maybe I am too much of a pessimist to really enjoy a book this short, and if I weren't, I would enjoy this as much as all of my favorite PNRs, but I have a hard time enjoying any story where I just can't believe in the love between the characters. No matter what type of novel I am reading, be it science fiction or romance, I need a romance to fall in love with the novel, but I also need the build-up and the tension which sometimes requires hundreds of pages to establish. However, I would still recommend this story, especially to all those PNR lovers out there who only have time to enjoy a quick read.
