At the words “Demon Apocalypse” I knew I’d be interested in reading Moira Rogers’s first book in the Children of the Undying series. Marci is a summoner, a smart and independent woman who has gifts far beyond comprehension. Unfortunately, living in one of the underground cities, she is vulnerable and her powers are muted. But what other option does she have? It’s better than living topside.

Enter Gabe – a half-demon who has got some serious charm. When Gabe offers Marci the chance to see to her safety and escape to a settlement where she can no longer live in fear of being found out, Marci wonders if she can trust Gabe with her life.
And her heart.

I really enjoyed Marci’s character. She’s a smart techie and isn’t one to jump into things without careful deliberation. But even a smart gal like Marci can’t resist Gabe’s offer. She may be safe from demons but if she stays where she is, blending into the background, is she really living?

Gabe and Marci have chemistry that is combustible! Rogers does a great job of turning up the heat in slow degrees until Marci can’t help herself and she turns to butter. I don’t blame her.

Meanwhile, Gabe is great in that he gives Marci the ability to choose. He respects her, gives her time and doesn’t manipulate her into wanting what he wants. Instead, he allows her to choose her fate, picking a path she desires.

For a novella, the worldbuilding is pretty impressive. Already I’m itching for the next dose of this series. Even if you’re not into sci-fi all that much, there’s enough paranormal romance to keep you reading until the very last page.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Taking a chance with your life is never more appealing than when you have already come to the conclusion that you have no life as it is. Sounds like a good jumping off point for a romantic scfi adventure.

Thanks for the review!
