Her touch is deadly
As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outsider. She spent decades enslaved, and now she vows she’ll die before she’ll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin’s innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.
His hunger can’t be denied
Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she’s no stranger: He’s bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld’s most wanted and Con soon learns he’s the only one who can help her… and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.
I was really really really looking forward to Sin’s book. She’s one of those heroines who you just can’t help but root for. She’s been through so much but she still manages to be strong. And Con… well, Con is crazy hot so I was looking forward to seeing more of him. But it felt like something was missing. I can’t put my finger on what exactly that something was, but this book just didn’t have it.
Our story starts with all kinds of shit hitting the fan. On a hit gone wrong, Sin has managed to start an epidemic. Werewolves (aka wargs) are dropping like flies, Underworld General is being inundated with the dying, and the Warg Council wants Sin’s head on a plate. Sin’s always had a knack for landing herself in trouble but this is just ridiculous. Adding to Sin’s woes is the fact that now she has to deal with Con, the delicious dhampire she got freaky with in one of the hospital’s supply closets. Con isn’t exactly quivering with excitement at the prospect of being in Sin’s presence, either. Because of her, innocent werewolves are losing their lives. Unfortunately, neither actually has any choice and the two are forced into even closer quarters when it turns out that a hit has been put out on Sin. Con figures he owes the Sem brothers enough to help keep their wayward sister out of trouble, and Sin needs all the help she can get. The more time Sin and Con spend together, the more they realise that neither one is as they first appear. For all Sin’s tough as nails image, she’s vulnerable. And despite acting like a devil-may-care adrenaline junkie, Con is actually a good guy and a dedicated paramedic.
I’m actually pretty disappointed with Sin Undone. I think I hyped it up in my head and now it’s fallen a little short. But, on the plus side, this story did set things in motion for Ione’s spinoff series, The Lords of Deliverance, which I’m quite excited about.
