A DEMON WITH A SILKEN TONGUE… His village burned and people scattered, Baltherus’s dominance over the island has come to an end. All seems lost until a group of Justicars arrives with a violet-eyed elf who presents both a rare opportunity and an irresistible temptation. A WOMAN HE COULDN’T CONTROL... Born of mixed blood, Amnestria Sylmae has spent her entire life trying to overcome her mother’s shame. After being taken into the High Mage’s confidence, she finally has a chance to prove her worth. But she never anticipated the emotion that awakens in her when she catches the eye of a demon. AN ISLAND MADE PRISON FOR THE UNFORGIVEN… After more than a century of banishment, Baltherus knows Amnestria is his only means of escape. With time working against him, he’ll have to betray his soul’s other half to claim his freedom — if she can be persuaded to see past her preconceptions and submit to him.

I was provided an ARC of Make Me Hunger in exchange for an honest review.
I had a hard time getting into the story, this time around. Baltherus, who we met in book one, isn’t a character I really liked. He is selfish and completely self-serving. Then along comes Amnesteria and he doesn’t really change. He is only concerned about his wants and needs. Amesteria was a character I enjoyed. I always love reading about women who are warriors.
One big point of contention with the story for me was the repetitiveness. Baltherus had inner monologues going, that would be hashed over and over. Then later in the story, we would hear about that same thing again, when the characters discussed it. It was enough to drive me batty, to the point I started skimming the monologues.
I enjoyed the action, the character’s interactions and the general plot and direction of the story. However, I could have done without 90% of the inner monologues. Because of that this is getting a 2.5 stars it could have been better but I did like some parts.
