Life is complicated enough without adding a demigod into the mix. I’ve always been content with my quiet life in the small town of Ravenwood, but when the charming and dangerous Nikolas crashes into my world, everything changes.
He’s on a mission to avenge his family, and he believes that I hold the key to his success. I’m not sure I’m ready for the danger and excitement that come with being involved with a demigod, but I can’t resist the pull I feel towards him.
With his smoldering good looks and intense passion, Nikolas is impossible to resist. But as we delve deeper into the dangerous underworld of the supernatural, I realize that our connection could lead to my downfall.
Will I be able to resist Nikolas and his seductive ways, or will I succumb to his power and put my life in danger?
Sin & Chocolate by K.F. Breene is a thrilling work of urban fantasy that follows the story of Scarlett Ravenwood, a woman born into a family of witches who has rejected her magical heritage. The author, K.F. Breene, is an accomplished author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, and has made a name for herself in the genre over the years.
Published on October 10, 2018, this book is the first in the Demigods of San Francisco series and runs for approximately 292 pages. The book takes place in a world where gods and goddesses exist, and humans who possess magic are known as demigods.
Scarlett Ravenwood is one such demigod, born into a family of witches who can manipulate chocolate in miraculous ways. However, she has spent her life denying her magical abilities and instead focused on running a chocolate shop.
When a dangerous foe threatens her and her new-found demigod friends, she has no choice but to embrace her powers and join the fight. Sin & Chocolate is a fast-paced novel that succeeds in creating an engaging urban fantasy world filled with gods, demigods, and witches.
The author’s writing style is streamlined and easy to read, providing an immersive experience for the reader. The characters are well-developed and relatable, making it easy to invest in their struggles and triumphs.
One of the book’s strengths is the way it combines the tropes and conventions of urban fantasy with a unique magical system centered around chocolate. The idea of chocolate as a medium for magical power is unlike anything seen in the genre before and brings a fresh perspective to an already popular genre.
This twist adds an extra level of intrigue and excitement to the story, giving readers something new and unexpected. However, like any book, Sin & Chocolate is not without its flaws.
Some readers may find the pacing a bit too fast, with events happening too quickly and leaving little time for reflection. Others may find the romance subplot a bit too predictable and clichd, detracting from their overall enjoyment of the book.
Despite these issues, Sin & Chocolate is sure to appeal to fans of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. It provides a thrilling ride filled with action, magic, and romance that is sure to keep readers hooked until the very end.
While the book may not be perfect, it is still a highly entertaining read that showcases the author’s talent for crafting engaging stories. Overall, I highly recommend Sin & Chocolate to anyone looking for an exciting and unique urban fantasy novel.
The book scores a solid 4 out of 5 based on its excellent world-building, well-developed characters, and exciting plot.
