Sin Undone Paperback
by LARISSA IONE
Part of the A Demonica Novel series
Her touch is deadly. His hunger can't be denied. As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast.
She spent decades enslaved and now 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.
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.

Review by Lauren2013
The story is entertaining with several interwoven threads that ultimately merge together, however, the book ends with a lack of resolution. The Warg virus and search for a cure is very compelling as is the introduction of the various Warg factions, each with their own particular characteristics and agendas. However, aside from the deaths of the villains (in a very anti-climactic scene), there is no real closure - is the virus contained? What are the Aegis and RX-R's plans? Is there cohesion amongst the Warg? What will happen to Luc and Kar? Who will lead Con's clan? These are just a few of the unanswered questions.
Sin and Con's romance is the weakest in the series. It is never a good sign when the reader prefers the secondary couple, but Luc and Kar's relationship is simply more engaging and it is a pity that so much of it takes place "off screen".
Sin's "woe is me" attitude grates on the nerves to the extent that even Con has to tell her to get over herself. Con is slightly better but his reasons for loving Sin remain unclear - is it simply a result of his addiction to her blood or is there something real their? Moreover, their sexual chemistry feels force and it is difficult to become attached to them as a couple.
The demon family dynamic is the best part of the story. It was great catching glimpses of the couples from the previous books and the way they all band together to help Sin and Con was truly heartwarming - Shade even managed to grow on me a little and Wraith regains the #1 slot as my favorite Seminus brother (Lore overtook him for a moment in Ecstasy Unveiled).
All in all, not the best ending to a series but I'm looking forward to the spin-off, Lords of Deliverance, which focuses on the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. What's not to love about gorgeous men on horseback?
