The Demon Creed by Paula Altenburg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The Demon Creed is the third book in the Demon Outlaws series. I continued to enjoy Paula Altenburg's ability to combine an old west feel with a paranormal twist.
Creed is a Godseeker assassin, who has been sent to find half-demons and bring them to justice. Creed is finding it increasingly difficult to complete his mission when most of these half-demons are children that have been abandoned by their mortal parents. Left on their own, they have done what it takes to survive. While on this search, he meets Nieve. Nieve is timid and broken by her harsh life, but determined to find her half-demon son. Can she trust Creed to help her? Will Creed put aside his duty to do what is right by these children?
This is an action-packed adventure with a heart warming romance. I enjoyed the journey I, as the reader, was taken on. Nieve has been used and abused which has left her fearful and damaged. Despite this, she is willing to do whatever it takes to find her son. Creed is a well trained assassin, who is good at hiding his half-demon side. Creed's struggle with his duty, who he is and what is right made him a more likeable character, instead of a stone cold killer. I look forward to reading what will happen next in this series.
