Book Review: Pure and Sinful by Killian Mcrae


When it turns out your ex was actually a sexy demon sent by the devil to seduce you to evil, you’d think the next guy, no matter what he’s like, couldn’t be a worse decision. Enter Father Marc Angeletti, a smooth talking piece of forbidden fruit with onyx eyes and a razor wit, and Riona Dade may as well start packing her luggage for damnation now. But come Hell or… well, Hell, Marc, Riona, and demigod Dee Zitka have a mission: serve as a Pure Soul and vanquish Lucifer’s minion scum from the face of the Earth to protect humanity from evil.

Oh, and don’t get seduced into sin yourself, because a fallen Pure Soul is one of Lucifer’s biggest thrills. As long as Riona and Marc can keep things professional and north of the sheets, no problem, right?

Yeah, that worked out great in the Thornbirds, too…

About the Author:

Killian McRae would tell you that she is a rather boring lass, an authoress whose characters’ lives are so much more exciting than her own. She would be right. Sadly, this sarcastic lexophile leads a rather mundane existence in the San Francisco Bay Area. images

She once dreamed of being the female Indiana Jones, and to that end she earned a degree in Middle Eastern History from the University of Michigan. However, when she learned that real archaeologist spend more time lovingly removing dust with toothbrushes from shards of pottery than outrunning intriguing villains with exotic accents, she decided to become a writer instead. She writes across many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, and historical fiction.

My Review:

It’s always great to find a new author you want to read. Pure & Sinful gives readers a fun supernatural ride. Riona is a cool character that makes you want to read on.  The story line was twisty and it was nice to finally find a book that surprised me.

From a writer’s perspective there is a lot of humor in there, which can be an added bonus in any book, however I personally felt there was a bit too much in places. Action scenes can be diluted if the main character is throwing out more jokes than punches and it certainly alters the ebb and flow of certain scenes. I think it would have been better if the jokes and puns had been reined in slightly in certain places – therefore making the remaining ones count more.

The book was definitely left on a cliff-hanger – but fortunately this tour kindly gave us the second book, so at least I don’t have to wait to find out what comes next.

The front cover doesn’t give much away, apart from an amazing idea of how beautiful the main character is. It perhaps could have done with a few more hints on the cover as to the main themes of the book: good VS evil etc.

I’d give Pure & Sinful 4 out of 5 stars and would say that if you liked Laurell K Hamilton and Keri Arthur then you should definitely pick up some Killian Mcrae.
