"Demon Soul" by Christine Ashworth isn’t run-of-the-mill paranormal. Ashworth has taken the genre and given it refreshingly original treatment. We have Rose Walters, who has made a bit of a mess of her life so far and nearly died, being given a chance to come back so that she can save Gabriel Caine. Gabriel and his brother Justin are suspicious of her at first as they can sense that she is more than human now. So is Gabriel. He and Justin are tribreds, a mixture of human, demon and fae. Throw in Gabriel’s ex, Satine, who has taken something he desperately needs back, and you have a very interesting story as Rose and Gabriel join forces to solve the very dangerous problem that he faces.

It is a gritty story. Rose is no angel and has a history of drug abuse. But she is courageous and likeable and very determined. Through the Caines she learns what family love can be like and that is very heartwarming. All the characters have depth and they are all flawed which makes them all the more human and sympathetic. You get drawn into their conflicts and really care about what happens to them. And it helps that some of them are rather sexy too! The plot is far from predictable in this battle of good versus evil. The book is confidently and persuasively written. It is no problem to suspend your disbelief and accept the paranormal as completely normal. There are more books to come in this series, which is really good news.
