In Demon’s Hunger, Vivien Cairn is a forensic anthropologist who has a collection of small bags filled with a variety of bones, known as gris-gris. Not so unusual, considering her occupation. However, strange things begin to happen, but she isn’t ready to see a connection, not until Sorcerer Dain Hawkins comes knocking on her door, seeking her help. Dain also collects gris-gris bags with bones inside. He needs Vivien’s help with identifying the origin of the bones in order to solve a series of killings that appear to be the work of what he and his peers believe is a rare succubus.
Vivien doesn’t believe in sorcerers, demons or succubae, not even when they show up in her home. When Dain and his friends, Darqun and Ciarran, arrive at Vivien’s door, they are attacked by a demon and hybrids. Dain kills the demon while his friends take care of the hybrids.
Vivien then begins to see things that are not her imagination and is forced to believe in something that is not scientific.
Vivien and Dain are attracted to one another from the first moment of meeting. Dain is afraid to feel again, since his wife and daughter were killed centuries before. Vivien already knows Dain but tries to fight the feelings that are too strong to fight. This book has everything: romance, good against evil, humor, drama, with all the many twists and turns that also make it a thriller. I liked the book so much that I just have to read her other books.
