Review - Entice

* This book was sent to me by the publisher in exchange for a honest review*

Title: Entice
Author: Erica Crouch
Series: Ignite #1.5
Publisher: Patchwork Press
Release Date: November 13th 2013

My Rating:

With the aftertaste of Heaven still strong, Pen and Azael cloak themselves in their new demonic destinies, fighting for Lucifer against the angels. Pen, warring against former friends turned vengeful enemies, still struggles with defecting to Hell. But in one short battle, they go from forgotten to famous, thrust into the spotlight where she has no room for uncertainty.

Suddenly top-tiered demons, they’re tasked with seeing through hell’s new agenda: corrupting man. But tarnishing Eden isn’t as simple as they thought it would be, especially when they’re forced to work with another team of demons who are trying to claw their way up the ladder of power.

Entice is an e-novella that prequels Pen and Azael’s story in Ignite.


Erica Crouch has a way of keeping the readers completely hooked in her books. She has a wonderful way with words that allows you to see the environments exactly the way she intended too.

Unlike her previous work, in my oppinion, this book was never slow. Maybe because I already had some sort of knowledge on the characters or maybe since it was a novella it had to be short and to the point. This being said, Entice is a wonderful piece of work.
I absolutely enjoyed the way she portrayed 'The Garden of Eden' and I loved even more the way she retold the fall of man.

As I said in the review for 'Ignite' I need to know more about Lucifer and Michael, especially how they got locked away together... Maybe Erica Crouch is planning another novella on this subject? Let's hope so.

This author keeps leaving me breathless with her endings, in a way that she hints on what's going to happen next but still, as all good authors do, never says much about it, leaving us readers frustrated and sad, in a good way of course.

I believe this novella was indeed needed in order to fully understand the relationship of Pen and Azael in a more deeper level, to allow us to get even more connected with them, and possibly suffer more once we read the final book in this trilogy.

Something else I must mention before finishing this review, is that the cover is absolutely beautiful, stunning even.
