Ashera del Cid is a talented demon hunter, but when she kills a demigod's pet dragon, the hunter becomes the hunted. Her only potential ally is Ramiel, a sexy-as-hell demon. Now the two must work together to battle dragons and demigods…and the chemistry crackling between them.

Ramiel has his own reasons for offering Ashera his protection. He knows her true identity and the real reason the demigods want her dead. What he can't predict is how she'll react when she discovers he knew who she was all along...

Ashera is shocked to discover that she is the only daughter of the last slayer. To claim her destiny, she and Ramiel must join forces to face down danger and outwit their enemies. Only then will she be able to truly accept her legacy...

5.0 su 5 stelle Fast paced urban fantasy 29 aprile 2016

Ashera is a demon hunter who discovers that she is not just an ordinary human. She is a slayer, and part of a race decimated 400 years ago. She must reclaim her destiny, her ancestral lands. Does this sound like a book you've read before? Well, the plot is similar, but a fresh take on a traditional fantasy. And there are very few fantasy novels on the market right now. I thought the writing was excellent. If you like this, you may also want to try richelle meade, paula altenburg, allison pang, or jeffe kennedy.

5.0 su 5 stelle A fantastic read 6 gennaio 2012
Di AvidReader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

A gripping plot, likeable characters, well written and imaginative, The Last Slayer is another terrific urban fantasy romance from Carina Press.

Ashera del Cid hunts demons for a living, but on her twenty seventh birthday she discovers that demons - dragon lords to be exact - are hunting her. Ramiel, a sexy dragon lord, offers his alliance, but he invades her dreams and gives her toe curling astral sex. Sounds good, except that only incubi can invade your dreams and she hates incubi. One of them killed her boyfriend and she's sworn revenge on all of them. She's suspicious, but it turns out that he's vowed to help her and dragon lords are sticklers for honouring their vows.
Ramiel knows her true identity, the only daughter of the last slayer, and the real reason the demigods want her dead, but he only tells her what he wants her to know and when she discovers that he has been manipulating her in her ignorance, she is rightfully pissed off. Nevertheless, he's the only ally she has and is an awesome lover, so when her plan to return to her human life falls through, she returns to his Dragonhold and works with him to battle dragons and demigods so she can claim her heritage.
This book made my imagination soar with images of dragons, castles in the air, magical portals and dragon riding. Ashera and Ramiel are both vibrant characters and I loved Toshi the little fairy dragon who looked after Ramiel's dragonhold . The touch of humour he added helped to make this a really enjoyable book. Even without him, the story avoided the overt darkness of some urban fantasy.

There was plenty of action, making this book more than just a romance and probably enjoyable for people who are cautious about that genre. The sex, though intense, wasn't overdone or gratuitous.

The ending was perfect and I thank the author for the epilogue. I really appreciated being able to leave the book having my suspicions confirmed. There wasn't anything I didn't like about this book and I hope that Nadia will bring us further adventures from Ramiel and Ashara. The story certainly left room for at least one more. I give it five stars and urge all lovers of urban fantasy to read it, especially if you're into dragons.

4.0 su 5 stelle UF with a definite fantasy bend 1 gennaio 2012
Di Countess Chocula - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Some days it doesn't pay to have a rep as the baddest demon slayer around, as Ashera Del Cid finds out when she's hired to help out with some human-dragon negotiations and ends up toasting one of the dragons' pet wyrms. Under attack, she reluctantly accepts help from a mysterious demi-god named Ramiel, who tells her that she's been watched by the dragons for a long time - she has a destiny to fulfill and he's the only one who can protect her and guide her through it.

This was a story that really grabbed me from the beginning and kept me reading because of all the crazy twists and turns. It begins so normally with a simple job for Ashera and sort of explodes out from there. She begins as a character that is almost never seen in an urban fantasy or anywhere else - a relatively unattractive heroine. She has a great, normal relationship with her foster sister that I hope gets continued - she really humanizes Ashera and I like that about her. I liked that despite her physically strong and fearless exterior, Ashera still worried about home, about whether she was good enough. I connected with her and could understand some things about her despite the fantasy setting so even when things got weird, I just couldn't stop reading.

Once Ramiel gets hold of Ashera, the true fantasy part of the story takes over and things get a little crazy. There are a ton of things to take in, a whole new world for Ashera to deal with and a lot of mythology to learn. For the most part, I like where Lee is going with all of this. I'm hoping in the next book things will become clearer in a few areas. There are some notable supporting characters introduced, especially Ramiel's tiny butler-ish dragon Toshi who provides a lot of comic relief.

Ramiel is a slippery character that I never quite knew whether I liked or didn't. He seemed like he was on Ashera's side and he did many things that were dangerous in support of her but he also was sort of sneaky. I thought the constant trust issues between Ashera and Ramiel took up a lot of space. She's a smart woman so the back and forth between them about his agendas and their relationship didn't seem in character sometimes. I did love the murkiness of everyone's motives, but I think Ashera would be more on guard given her past.

The villains are wonderfully nasty and there are all sorts of skirmishes sprinkled throughout the story with an epic showdown at the end that of course leaves big questions for the next book. This can be read as a standalone - there are hints given at the end that may answer some questions but you'll be left with more that will want you to keep reading if for no other reason than to follow Ashera as she searches for the way to fulfill her destiny.

Lee has created a complex and compelling world of demi-god dragons, slayers and demons with a great heroine at the center. In this first book she's already set up a second quest for Ashera, more secrets revealed about a deep family secret and the continuation of a hot romance with a little dangerous subterfuge involved. If you're looking for a genre-blender of fantasy, paranormal and urban fantasy, then I totally recommend this for you.

The story is a well written urban fantasy. I want the next one in the series RIGHT NOW, so get on that please Ms. Lee. The writing is crisp, the characters well defined and the story will keep the pages turning. The world building was done expertly. I will try Ms. Lee's other novels while waiting for the next Slayer book.

4.0 su 5 stelle Highly enjoyable fantasy 29 dicembre 2011
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Ashera Del Cid is a demon hunter who works with her foster family's company that defends humans against demon dream attacks. When Ashera deals with a case that quickly turns ugly she comes across the mysterious and seductive Ramiel who claims that he is there to help and guide her because she is no ordinary demon hunter, but is actually a Slayer and the last of of her kind. With her life thrown in disarray, she is drawn into a web of intrigue and warring dragon lord factions because of her mysterious origins which she discovers brings major revelations.

You have to love an opening of a book where the heroine has to drink an energetic drug potion called Sex (which doesn't taste as delicious as it sounds) to get a boost of preternatural energy to battle demons. Ashera is a smart and independent heroine who has some great wise-cracking lines and kick ass scenes. Although she is wary to get to close to many people, because of being abandoned as a baby and thrust from foster home to foster home, she is close and loves her foster sister and foster father who are also her co-workers, but she has always felt like an outcast and an outsider.

The romantic subplot was also a real joy to read and I really loved Ramiel who I think was pretty sexy and charismatic and the scenes he shared with Ashera oozed with sexual tension. I especially loved their first love scene which was very sensual and the imagery depicted was imaginative and erotic. I really liked how their relationship progressed in the book which had its fair share of road-bumps and especially how it tied in with the development of Ashera's character who undergoes a real metamorphosis throughout the book. I also felt that the romance evolved naturally with real tension but without any forced angst and I look forward to see how it develops in future books to see how it further develops.

I also really loved Nadia Lee use of mythology which was really vivid and full of rich details. The world she created of dragons and their dragon lords, and other demon beings was very memorable, and it had a dreamy descriptive feel. The different types of dragons such as the wyrms and wyverns in the action scenes was tense and creepy. But I have to say I really loved the tinker wyrm who plays a butler type role for the Dragon-Lords, and I especially loved Toshi, who was Ramiel's servant who gave real splash of humour to the story who was pretty neurotic about his domestic duties for his master.

I wished there was more time spent on Ashera's feelings towards some of the revelations she uncovers especially the scene that is integral about her mother. And I did feel the pace slowed in the middle of the book whilst the ending was rushed and a bit anti-climatic with the lead up to the big battle, although that final scene felt really epic in scope and filled with high octane action. But nonetheless, it was a fulfilling ending to a highly enjoyable book.

The Last Slayer is an imaginative and action packed Urban Fantasy that I immensely enjoyed with its premise of dream demons and dragon-lords. For a genre that I have been kind of burned out on the past year or so, it really felt refreshing from the all the usual vampires, werewolves and witches and tropes that is usually featured in Urban Fantasy. The underlying erotic tone also adds a touch of heat but doesn't overpower the story or characters but really adds to the book. With an engaging wise-cracking heroine and a smouldering hero, and epic fantastical tone, I highly recommend The Last Slayer if you fancy something new.
