From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series…
It’s been seven months since Cipher, an Unfallen angel who straddled a razor thin line between good and evil, woke up in hell with a new set of wings, a wicked pair of fangs, and a handler who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous. As a laid-back cyber-specialist who once assisted guardian angels, he’d been in a prime position to earn back his halo. But now, as a True Fallen forced to use his talents for malevolence, he must fight not only his captors and his sexy handler, but the growing corruption inside him…before the friends searching for him become his enemies and he becomes his own worst nightmare.
Lyre is a fallen angel with a heart full of hate. When she’s assigned to ensure that Cipher carries out their boss’s orders, she sees an opportunity to take revenge on those who wronged her. All she has to do is appeal to Cipher’s burgeoning dark side. But the devastatingly handsome fellow True Fallen has other ideas — sexy ideas that threaten to derail all Lyre’s plans and put them in the path of an approaching hell storm.
Danger and desire explode, even as Cipher and Lyre unravel a sinister plot that will fracture the underworld and send shockwaves into Heaven itself…
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do. **
“Ione has made a major name for herself with her amazing Demonica series.”

❤️💋🔥 My Review
I love this fantastic series full of angels both good and bad and everything in between and other supernatural beings. This series and this story is so involved with several players in the mix, both old and new. This one features Cipher as his player ways get him captured and taken to a realm controlled by the truly evil Bael who wants to use him to force Azagoth, the Grim Reaper, to join him in his quest to free Satan and bring on the apocalypse. Cipher is tortured in gruesome ways but what a swoon-worthy male he is as he holds strong and refuses to aid Bael and his brother Moloc. His beautiful handler, Lyre, watches as Cipher’s struggles and realizes there’s more to him than just a handsome face and smokin’ hot bod…his beautiful mind and awesome IT skills. She’s captivated by him and realizes Cipher may be her way out of her awful situation. And he’s not immune to Lyre’s charms and her actions to protect him. I love these two together! This fabulous author always gives us a sexy couple to cheer for and Cipher and Lyre are no exception. I just wanted more of them and I think this shortened version didn’t do them justice but hopefully we’ll see more of them in future stories. I loved the glimpses of old characters especially Reaver and Revenant. This is an action-packed, thrilling story with several twists that will play into future stories. What an ending and epilogue! I love the new generation of characters and they are lots in this story between Cipher’s friends and Lyre’s sisters for future stories. But I’m so glad we are not finished with the old characters. I can’t wait for more of Azagoth and his family. He’s seriously lethal and a sexy beast. And what’s he going to do with the stolen feathers?
