Review by: Tiger Lily

Your mission: eradicate the enemy menace. Your reward: your wings. Your warning: don’t lose your heart, or you could destroy your race. Ah, such is the mission for Rafe, the dark angel in Touch of the Demon. Well, it is until Celeste comes along…

Ms. Phillips uses a hot-button subject, a clash between races, as the main theme for her short story. Battling legions isn’t unique, but her approach to the topic is. She weaves the characters together in such a fashion that they are incomplete alone. Rafe wants to kill the half-goddess, half-human creature. Celeste needs Rafe to impregnate her. What’s an independent spirited woman to do? Snag him in a dark alley! As the relationship deepens, both realize their jobs mean nothing without love.

The relatable aspect of this story is that we all know people we might not befriend because of differences. When the heart is in charge, the differences melt away. We could all learn from that logic.

If you want a sexy read, filled with demons, goddesses, and forbidden love, then pick up a copy of Touch of the Demon and let it take you away. I give this short story 4 cherries.
