Review: Cambion Epi 1: Heaven's On Fire by Cari Z

Dark Around the Edges (Cambion #1): Heaven's On Fire by Cari Z
Storm Moon Press
Short Story: 41pgs
4 Pants Off

Devon's infiltration of a Chinese kingpin's lair doesn't quite go off as planned, and lands him in a dangerous predicament. Shangdi knows about Devon, and knows how useful a cambion can be, particularly to his partner, the mysterious demon summoner Porter Grey. With time running out for Devon, it's up to the even more mysterious Rio Pagani to storm the compound and pull Devon out before Porter can put his plans for the cambion into motion.

I don't know what I was expecting, but surely I was not expecting this. And by this, I mean an awesome story packed in a few pages filled with sexy love. Then again, it’s a Cari Z. so I should have expected awesome. The serial starts off with a bang and interesting characters which puts new meaning to "I will make your pants drop". Heaven's On Fire is the explosive beginning to something quite special.

Devon has to infiltrate some seedy establishment based in the desserts of Las Vegas; he's the best so he was expecting to get it done easily. When he starts off by accessing his greatest power, he never expected them catch on so quickly and now he's at the end of a taser and being captured. Upside, the man that was his target is present but the downside he's going to need back-up (after-all it’s not really a downside). Porter Gray is the top demon summoner and he has been putting his skill to use in the den of disastrous deeds, and landing his eyes on Cambion like Devon is intriguing but you know there's no time to play. There are succubus to summon and dirty old men to entertain but Porter's demon is about to come to a standstill and he's going to have to hightail it out of there and start anew because Heaven's Lair is about to get blown to bits.

So Devon is a Cambion which is like part incubus demon and human, which means he's got the skills to make you overcome with lust and do anything. That’s my conclusion on his makeup cus I feel like there's a bit more info to come on the whole Cambion thing. Right now it’s very singular, but I feel like there is more to come. Devon at the moment just seems like a sex kitten, supposedly he is one of the best but he came off like a horny kitten to me (so lots prove in the next episode). I am very interested in his backup Rio, who's all like mysterious, big, and might be interested in Devon a little more than he's even aware of (and Devon like really likes him).

It ends off on a thrilling note, which leaves the reader begging for answers. Like "Who was Porter Gray getting all hot in the pants and misty eyed with on the phone?” Judging by his reaction to the voice, something tells me that his "boss" might be a little bit other. Lots of awesome happening so far and I am just so excited to see where the serial is going. So excited to read up on the others, because the first had humour, guns a blazing, and hot sex. Just imagine what the others will be like....

Should You Read It? Hell yes...all fans of Cari Z should be picking this one up, and the story is intriguing and exciting. Who doesn't love a half-sex demon? Plus, Rio and Devon's relationship should get all types of interesting as the episodes keep coming. Really enjoyed it!!
