Razr isn't quite a fallen angel but he's been banished from heaven as part of his punishment for losing 3 of their most powerful weapons, the gems of Enoch. Razr's team made a huge mistake that cost the lives of the humans bonded to the gems and he's been paying for it ever since. His only chance of earning his way back to heaven is to recover the missing gems but that is easier said than done when he is also tasked with helping Azagoth training the memetim.
Jedda is a gem elf who spends most of her time in the human realm. Her innate ability to sense gems from a distance make her the ideal person to track the gems of Enoch but unfortunately for Razr another fallen angel got to her first and her life is now at risk if she doesn't hand over the gems to his enemy.
Razr is the fourth novella in the Demonica Underworld spin off series, which focuses on characters living in the underworld. The earlier stories focused on characters we'd become familiar with from the main Demonica books but now we're starting to see the series branch off in a different direction and I have to say I'm enjoying seeing where this goes. The addition of gem elves just shows there is a lot more to this world still waiting for us to explore it and I absolutely loved finding out more about Jedda. Gem elves have some really interesting characteristics and abilities so I can't wait to see what else Larissa Ione has in store for us.
As this is a novella the romance between Razr and Jedda develops quite quickly but it didn't feel rushed because of the way events unfolded. I enjoyed spending time with both of the main characters and thought there was a great connection between them. There was a lot of action to go along with the romance so I flew through this story in double time. It was also nice to see a bit more of Azagoth and the other underworld based characters and I'm looking forward to seeing whose story will be up next. I think this series still has a huge amount of potential and its definitely one of my favourites!
