Publisher's Summary

An assassin with a secret. An angel with a strange power. A war that threatens to destroy them both.

Cora is an assassin who never misses her mark. But she has a deadly secret: Her blood can create the most powerful magical elixirs in the world.

And she's been hunted for it her whole life.

When a powerful demon blackmails her, threatening to expose her secret, she has to do one last job to buy her freedom: Kill a Nephilim named Vince. Cora figures this will be an easy target.

Until Vince time travels, appearing in two places at once.

Thwarted, Cora must get close to Vince so she can learn the secret to his strange ability - and finally kill him once and for all.

But the closer she gets to Vince, the more her icy heart begins to thaw, making way for new emotions she's never felt before.

As she falls for him, her secret is exposed, igniting a powerful war between demons and Nephilim. In the end, Cora must choose between her own survival and preventing a war that will tear the magical world apart.

Narration was Awful!!

I tried several times and just can’t get past the narration. I think she thinks it’s a marathon or something. I even tried slowing it down and then it just made it weird. I really liked the summary of the book and from what I heard of the story it seemed good. I would recommend reading the books and not the audible version.

Good Book

This is different from what I normally read. I loved it though and looking forward to book2. The noise between chapters was a little noisy but didn't take away from the book.

Couldn’t stop listening to it.

Love this Story. It would suit teenagers as well.
Contains some Romance, some violence and no course language.
The narrator does a wonderful job, giving each character their own unique voice.
I enjoy the story.

Intriguing angels/demons PNR, and a great start to the series

An interesting PNR with demons and angels (Nephilim) that has plenty of action and a good pace, with some interesting world building. The FMC, Cora, is a ruthless, and well known assassin, known especially for never missing her mark. When nephilim Vince becomes the exception to her perfect record, she starts to question everything she is doing, and why and who she is doing it for. As she goes undercover, under the guise of trying to infiltrate, learn more, and finish the job, she decides she’s had enough, and opts to fight for her own survival and freedom, while still trying to protect her own secrets. It’s an intriguing plot, and a great start to the series. Looking forward to more!

Amazing story!

I enjoyed this book right from the start. I loved the dual story telling, it really helped develop the main characters. The story was so intriguing, and I loved all the different supernaturals merging into a big story.

Cora has to hide who she really is because once people know the truth they use her. Vince has never felt at home with his fellow Nephilim. When Cora and Vince meet they learn that not everything is at it seems.

I can't wait to continue this series!

There was some weird audio occasionally at the end of a few chapters, but not a big deal

I enjoy this one

I'm not sure where to start. This book had me thinking. Cora this way you come see her go from a cold person to showing her feelings letting herself feel letting herself open up to one person show that it takes the right person to show you that there can be good people out there and you don't want you in their life but you have something they can use. Vince who has no clue but can see the good in people I don't think he knows that he can. But you can see to warrior inside him. He hasn't seen it in himself but you can see it. He also isn't willing to give up and what he needs to do. I can't wait to see how Vince and Cora grow

Great start to the series!

The Demon's Kiss, the first book in the Bloodcaster Chronicles, is a wonderfully written paranormal/urban fantasy romance. This was my first R.L. Perez book, and I was taken aback by how much I liked her style. Her world-building is creative and plot, intricate and contains a myriad of otherworldly creatures. The storyline is engaging, unpredictable, and adventurous, with plenty of drama, suspense, action, murder, danger, betrayal, and unexpected twists and turns. I'm definitely looking forward to listening to the rest of the series and can't wait to find out what's next for Cora.

Alyssa Ratkovich did an excellent job with the narration. Her reading was well-paced, clear, and portrayed the characters nicely. Overall, The Demon's Kiss was an entertaining and enjoyable paranormal listen, one I'll recommend.

Intriguing Story

I enjoyed this. It's a unique story with a half warlock half angel and a blood with assassin from a demon coven.

I liked the characters and the story kept me entertained.

Time travel is fascinating and has my brain trying to work out what if? How did that happen? I love the ride that came with following the characters.

Nicely read and left me wanting more.

The Demon's Kiss, Well Worth The Listen!

This was my first time reading a book by R.L. Perez and it won't be the last time either! "The Demon's Kiss" was enjoyable from page one. I was originally drawn to this book as it's a nephilim and demon tale. What will keep me coming back is the writing. The characters are vividly written and the storyline has layers of complexity. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series!

Next chapter

This book starts a little slow. Once you get into you are intrigued as to how it will play out. You get a lot of questions answered but are left with a lot more. There is no cliffhanger just more of a next chapter.

Great first book of a series

Really enjoyed this first book. Good strong characters and great story. Found myself putting it on in the house while doing thing. I almost never do this. My only criticism would be it is abit short, and moved at a fast pace. thought it could do with slowing down a getting abit deeper in to some parts. but this would just be a minor criticism. Overall would recommend.

What an amazing start

Great start to this supernatural romance series! It has it all: cool and kick-ass FMC, sweet and loyal MMC, super-annoying and condescending villain, action that makes you want to keep listening (I almost listened to the entire book in one sitting) a great take on the different supernatural species, oh and, did I mention timetravel? Yes it has timetravel too! It will leave you wondering sometimes, but I felt the author did an amazing job tying up all the different travels. This is my first book by this author, but definitely not the last. I really enjoyed the world-setting, and I absolutely loved Cora and Vince. Cannot wait for the next!
The narrator did a great job, she was very easy to listen to and did well when doing Vince's voice too.

Fab first in series.

Started a bit slow but was so glad I kept listening. I loved Cora from the start you could tell she was going to be a force to be reckoned with. Even though she’s sent after Vince she knew there was an ulterior motive why her boss wanted him dead and she set out to uncover it and uncovered a bigger conspiracy than any of them could have imagined. Alyssa did a great job narrating and I can’t wait for book 2 .
