“They say I’m half demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead.”

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke.

When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. The price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.

Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell, an assassin with ulterior motives, and her bloodthirsty demon-kin, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive.

When your ex is the Prince of Greed, you'd better be ready to raise hell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting world I liked this book but I didn't love it. When I first saw this book available for request on NetGalley, I requested it right away only to be somewhat surprised to learned that I actually already owned a copy. Oops. Oh well, I having so many books that I can't remember them all is a good problem to have. I decided that it was obviously time to sit down and actually read this story. I thought that the world created within this novel was very interesting. One thing that I have learned over the years is that oftentimes the first book in a series such as this requires a lot of world building. Usually, the first book in this type of series is my least favorite. I tend to think of the first book in a urban fiction series as the foundation that the rest of the series will be built upon. If I find that I like the first book, chances are that I will like the subsequent novels even more. It doesn't always work that way but it has happened to me enough that I have come to expect it. You know what....I liked this book so I am really excited to continue on with this series. I do have to admit that the main character in this novel drove me a little nuts at times and I am still not sure if I like her or not. That's okay. I don't have to like her to enjoy her story. Muse seemed really strong at times and ready to take on anybody and at other times she seemed incredibly vulnerable. I don't think that either side was out of character though. Anyone who was forced to deal with all of the situations the Muse is in this book would probably feel a wide range of emotions which I thought was well represented. The pacing of the book was well done and there was enough excitement that I really wanted to know how things would work out. There were a few twists that really surprised me and at several points I was as confused as Muse was about who could be trusted. I do wish that some things would have been explored in a little more detail, such as Muse's special ability to read metal, but I suspect that future installments in this series may satisfy my curiosity. I would recommend this book to fans of urban fiction. There is enough action to keep most readers entertained and the world filled with demons is unique. This is the first book by Pippa DaCosta that I have had a chance to read. I look forward to continuing this series. I received an review copy of this book from Victory Editing via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow to start I found the first few chapters a little slow and almost lost interest in the book. But chapter 5 got me hooked and I couldn't put this book down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I loved this book. I like how it sticks on one topic, but expands it. I also like how you were so confused.
