Demon slayer, Ariel Malony, thought she knew her friend and travelling companion, Nick, but she discovers that at the University of Sheldra he is a respected translator with little time to spare. Now that he isn't at her side all the time, she wishes he was, and when she finally admits her love, powerful
emotions sweep her away like flotsam in a raging torrent.
An army of demons force them to cut short their stay and from the gothic architecture of Sheldra, they travel between enormous standing stones, and across a vast dry plain to the ancient granite walls of the Hermitage where Ariel meets her greatest challenge yet.
There, the demon lord, Emot takes advantage of her inexperience in matters of the heart and preys on her desire for pleasure, setting off a struggle with addiction that threatens to break Nick's heart and turn Ariel into the demon's mindless slave. She must reach deep into her soul and find the mystical power she needs to kill the one who promises pleasure but delivers only pain. Fail,
and she will lose the one she loves and spend an eternity in the demon's grip.
Although this can be read as a stand-alone novel, aspects of the story will be clearer if you have read the previous books in this series; Lethal Inheritance & Stalking Shadows.
For the next installment of the Diamond Peak series, Tahlia does not disappoint. Demon's Grip continues from where Stalking Shadows left off, focusing on Ariel and Nick's journey further up the mountain. Arial is forced to come head-on with her feelings for Nick, and can no longer ignore how she feels for him. This causes major struggles as she finally faces Emot, and has not learned how to reign in those emotions. The reader cheers her on the entire way, and again we all eagerly await the final installment of this action packed series. If you haven't started these books yet, what are you waiting for? Get on that!
