Inkslinger Blog Tour: Razr by Larissa Ione (Review + Excerpt)

 One of my favorite paranormal authors has introduced a new species in her recent release and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Big thanks to Inkslinger PR for the chance to be a stop on the review tour for Larissa Ione!

About Larissa Ione:
Larissa Ione is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

An Air Force veteran, she traded in a career as a meteorologist to pursue her passion of writing. She now spends her days in pajamas with her computer, strong coffee, and supernatural worlds.

She believes in celebrating everything, and would never be caught without a bottle of Champagne chilling in the fridge…just in case. She currently lives in Wisconsin with her U.S. Coast Guard husband, her teenage son, a rescue cat named Vegas, and her very own hellhound, a King Shepherd named Hexe.

     A lavender-scented breeze rustled through the trees as they entered a jungle forest unlike anything Razr had ever seen, and the deeper into the woods they went, the more he realized he had been wrong about this realm. The trees swayed with the fragrant wind, their limbs heavy with silver-laced leaves that sprinkled glitter with every breath of air. It was clean here, with no hint of industrialization. No smog, no chemicals, no man-made filth.
     As they walked, the trees got taller and more ornate, and Jedda giggled when he stumbled to a stunned halt. Mushrooms littered the forest floor, lit up like little neon bulbs in every color imaginable. Tiny winged creatures zipped between them, bouncing off their caps before darting upward in sprays of sparks. And here, in this forest, the trees grew around gemstones of every shape and size, their trunks surrounding them like string art.
      “This…is extraordinary.”
      “Yeah,” she sighed. “It is.”
      “Do these gemstones provide energy?”
     She nodded and continued down the path. “They power everything here. Every tree grows around a gem, and each gem grows bigger with the tree. In the center of my town there’s an oak growing around an emerald the size of an elephant.” She pointed ahead, where the forest parted to reveal a village of buildings fashioned from live trees and thick vines, and there, at the very center, was the elephant emerald.
     He couldn’t stop staring in awe as she led him through the village, which bustled with activity, from people hawking baked goods or tending to gardens to a blacksmith who set a gemstone into each weapon he crafted.
      “They’re enchanted stones,” Jedda told him as they walked past. “His weapons sell for a mint in other elf realms and Sheoul.”
      “There are other elf realms?”
     She inclined her head in greeting at an azure-haired female who passed them with a basket of apples. “There are two, both connected to this one. They’re not allowed in Filneshara except to trade.”
      “Why not?”
     She shrugged. “They’re kind of a**holes.”
     Man, he really needed to learn more about elves.

A fallen angel with a secret.

An otherworldly elf with an insatiable hunger she doesn't understand.

An enchanted gem.

Meet mortal enemies Razr and Jedda...and the priceless diamond that threatens to destroy them both even as it bonds them together with sizzling passion.

Welcome back to the Demonica Underworld, where enemies find love...if they're strong enough to survive.

What’s it About? Fallen angel Razr has to locate a specific and priceless diamond in order to become an angel again. His search leads him to the mysterious elf Jedda who is hiding a few secrets of her own. Razr and Jedda’s intense and immediate attraction complicates matters when her secrets are finally revealed and their enemies start closing in.

Overall reaction to the story? Larissa Ione’s Demonica series is one of the best paranormal romances out there and now with the spin off series, The Demonica Underworld, there’s a lot to look forward to. To be honest, stories like Razr are a perfect example of why fans always want more from Larissa Ione.

Ione is one of the few authors who has managed to keep my attention since the very first book. I’ve never missed one of her Demonica books and have never gotten bored with it. Razr added a new element with Jedda’s kind that I hope leads to many more books in the series.

Razr and Jedda kept me at the edge of my seat from start to finish. I loved Razr, his story was difficult and his present existence brutal but it was Jedda that really caught my attention. She’s an elf in a Larissa Ione book so I just knew that was going to take my mind on a trip. She was so fierce but at the same time she was terrified of what would happen to her once her secret came out. That combination made her an irresistible character.

For a novella, Razr built up quite a story, I didn’t feel cheated out of a story, or a romance and I love that. I do hope that we’ll get a full length novel from Ione soon though as those tend to really make my day. If you’re new to Ione then I can guarantee you can pick up Razr and enjoy it without feeling lost.

Click It or Skip It? Ione excels at novellas just like she excels in full length novels. Razr was just what I needed to perk up my day.
