Cipher: A Demonica Underworld Novella
by Larissa Ione
April 9, 2019
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series… 

It’s been seven months since Cipher, an Unfallen angel who straddled a razor thin line between good and evil, woke up in hell with a new set of wings, a wicked pair of fangs, and a handler who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous. As a laid-back cyber-specialist who once assisted guardian angels, he’d been in a prime position to earn back his halo. But now, as a True Fallen forced to use his talents for malevolence, he must fight not only his captors and his sexy handler, but the growing corruption inside him…before the friends searching for him become his enemies and he becomes his own worst nightmare.

Lyre is a fallen angel with a heart full of hate. When she’s assigned to ensure that Cipher carries out their boss’s orders, she sees an opportunity to take revenge on those who wronged her. All she has to do is appeal to Cipher’s burgeoning dark side. But the devastatingly handsome fellow True Fallen has other ideas — sexy ideas that threaten to derail all Lyre’s plans and put them in the path of an approaching hell storm.

Danger and desire explode, even as Cipher and Lyre unravel a sinister plot that will fracture the underworld and send shockwaves into Heaven itself…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

At 193 pages, I'm not sure if this a "stand alone novella" it certainly reads more like a full blown tale. As a huge fan of the Demonica Underworld series I would say my tastes are really damn high. My reading expectations are set well above any bar that exists. Ione has spoiled me. Period. 

Saying that, this was another DAMN GOOD addition to her writing world. Be it a stand-alone or part of the ongoing series, you can categorize it any way you like. Cipher is action and heart-stopping moments served up only as this talented author can. Added with big moments of love, juicy lust and dark plot twists this PNR had me purring for more! 

I love this one like all the rest, Demonica Underworld continues to take home the gold platinum!
