Legacy of Temptation


Eva Tennant, like everyone at The Aegis, hates demons. But she loves her job as Deputy Spokesperson for the global demon-slaying organization, and she’s excited to be in the running for Chief Spokesperson. All she has to do is not screw up the two-week exchange program with The Aegis’s rival agency, the Demon Activity Response Team. But things go horribly wrong when a murder turns her into a fugitive from justice and puts a demonic target on her back.

Logan, son of the Horseman of the Apocalypse known as Death, has dedicated his life to fighting demons alongside his colleagues at DART. He loves fighting, females, and his pet hellhound, Cujo. What he doesn’t love is The Aegis, whose leadership attempted to slaughter him at birth. Understandably, he balks when he’s ordered to protect an Aegis Guardian responsible for the deaths of his friends. Really, he’d rather feed her to Cujo.

But when an old enemy rises from the ashes, Eva and Logan find themselves giving into temptation even as they sacrifice the things…and people…they love the most.

My Thoughts

Legacy of Temptation by Larissa Ione was so good! I love that this series is going the way of the children of the four horsemen of the apocolypse, it is such a good angle!

I really loved the characters in this book – the 2 main characters as well as most of the supporting characters. Eva is beautiful, strong, intelligent, capable, and ready to get this project over with so she can keep working towards her promotion. Logan is handsome, dangerous, strong, and a loyal DART worker.

When their worlds collide, the attraction is insanely strong, almost too strong to resist. While both of them want nothing to do with each other, they can’t help but simultaneously want everything to do with each other, and that sexual tension is so good!

I enjoyed the 2 organizations swapping people and the experience we get to see of the Aegis team in the DART homebase. It gives a lot of themes of racism/species-ism? and prejudice, and general close mindedness from the Aegis team. It was really interesting to see how these feelings and interactions played out, and then how the organizations dealt with everything as it happened.

The plot was great, the stakes were high, and it held my interest the whole time! I read this book on a 5 hour flight and did literally nothing else the entire time except read.

It was giving political government espionage + monsters + racism and I was here for it! Then we had the spice with Logan and Eva and I really enjoyed that. I am interested to see where the series goes from here! While this was my first dip into this world, it is only the beginning… I am so ready to fully dive into the universe and read everything else there is!

Overall, Legacy of Temptation by Larissa Ione is fantastic and I can’t wait to read more! I highly recommend.
