From the Blurb:
RED: Lázhien’s human. A common Imperial soldier. And my soulmate. How could fate get it so wrong? The demon in me craves this bond with every shred of his being. He pushes me to accept it. This time I won’t yield to his demands.
LÁZHIEN: Red’s a lust demon, a whore and a stuck-up snob. The most beautiful man I’ve ever seen. Pain in the arse. And he hates my guts. I’d be an idiot to pursue him. Yet something about him compels me to make him mine.
When I First Saw Red is a complete and standalone short novel with an HEA ending, featuring a couple of reluctant fated soulmates—a demon and a human—trying and failing to defy destiny.
I think it's a given after so many successful stories that Kasia Bacon knows how to write a fantasy story with magical creatures. She has the ability to fit a full story in just a few pages and make it complete.
In her latest release, When I First Saw Red - a full length novel! - she plays again with fated mates (like in Rago). It's another unlikely pairing, this time between a human and a demon.
Here, the couple tries to resist the bond and to move on. The demon has some unresolved issues from his past regarding his self worth and so the human has to fight to gain his trust.
The story unfolds over a few months' time with the main characters spending most of this period apart. There are side characters that enrich the plot and beautifully support the main ones, and there are even more information about Bacon's world.
I love how every story extends the Order Universe and adds something to it. As always, I look forward to the next book.
