Half-succubus attorney Lily Knight has blood on her hands.
Haunted by guilt, behind on her rent, and facing professional disgrace,
Lily must figure out how to survive in the wreckage of her former life. To
make ends meet, she accepts a contract job she never wanted but can’t
refuse—hunting another demon murderer. This time, the victims are human,
and a shadowy government agency will reward Lily with a way out of her
dire financial straits.
If Lily doesn’t solve the case before the news gets out, fear and hatred
will put all demonkind at risk from the proverbial torch-carrying mob. But
when a young succubus on the run from the authorities begs for her help,
Lily faces a new conflict of interest—especially after the suspect, Eve,
reveals her father is Lily’s old frenemy.
Now Lily must juggle the pressures of a high-stakes murder case, her
complicated relationship with her “not-boyfriend” Sebastian, and
responsibility for a wayward teenager as she races to find the real
When her investigation brings her face to face with an ancient,
implacable entity fixated on bloody justice, Lily must reckon with her
worst fear: the truth about what went down with Eve’s father in the
desert—and its consequences.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and I am leaving a
voluntary honest review.
Lily's world blew up at the end of Cambion's Law - She has lost her job as
a prosecutor, her law license is in jeopardy, she can't find a job and is
living with her friend Dani and her fiancé. She is sort of seeing
Sebastian although she is still fighting her feelings for him. She has
been attempting to get a job at a shelter for women, but with her law
license in jeopardy her prospects are bleak. She has one more job
offer for a job that seems a bit shady but she needs to make money and
this one is paying a lot.
Cambion's Blood finds Lily taking on investigating a slew of killings of
men with all their blood drained and feathers in their throats. It can't
be a demon and vampires aren't real so what could it be? While
investigating, Lily also comes across the main suspect who she believes
may also have been a victim, a young girl who Lily finds is actually the
daughter of her former mentor. Feeling guilty about the way things ended
between her former mentor Lily takes the girl under her wing and tries
once again tries to shield someone she feels is innocent and find the real
This book dives deeper into Lily and her motives, her feelings around
being half demon and wondering if people like her for herself or because
of her powers. It also dives into how the US treats people they don't
understand or fear. Once upon a time humans were experimenting and
trapping demons - that has changed, or has it? Now people are introducing
legislation to take away rights from anyone not considered Human. Its a
sad look at what fear does to humanity.
I really like this series and the ending left me holding my breath,
wondering what will happen next. I would not consider these
stand-alone books and would suggest to anyone to read from the beginning
since they do seem to build on the last one.
