Here comes the son by Dahlia Donovan
Back Cover …….
When evil stirs in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, heroes come in both ordinary and extraordinary packages.
Ignatius Faber knows a few things for absolute certain. He’s half-demon, his father is the unequivocal prince of darkness, and demons want to destroy his city. And if he doesn’t make the first move on his crush, they’re never going to be anything more than a teenage fantasy that’s lasted into his thirties.
Lalo Pavia grew up hard and fast, orphaned at a young age. As an autistic, he’s learned to approach life cautiously. He throws his energy into gardening and photography—allowing both to provide a buffer between himself and the rest of the world.
Except for Iggy.
Can they find triumph, life, and even love in the middle of a city in flames?
Their fight for the mile high city has just begun.
Ignatius (Iggy to his friends) is half demon, his father is the Prince of Darkness, Lucifer. His siblings (they numbered in their thousands) have been picked off one by one, and now his favourite brother lays slain in front of his own eyes. Iggy is a loner, and he likes it that way, he can’t afford to get too close to people. They can’t find out who or what he is.
Being an orphan that was moved from foster family to foster family. Lalo has difficulties bonding with the families, having autism, Lalo has trouble communicating what he needs, but Iggy gets Lalo (ever since Iggy rescued Lalo from the school bullies, they’d been friends ever since.)
After slaying his brothers killer, Iggy is off to see the one person he truly can be himself with, Lalo. And to complicate matters Iggy has deep feeling for the cute guy, but no matter how many hints (subtle or not) Lalo hasn’t noticed. Iggy won’t admit to love, it’s only lust, and Iggy can handle lust, love is a completely different story.
Poor Iggy, Lalo just wants to offer comfort, but he’s not wired that way, sure he thinks his best friend is hot, but he doesn’t want to ruin their friendship, so Lalo will just sigh and wonder if they could ever be together as a couple.
The story then goes on to tell us about the demons that are trying to take over the city, and how Iggy is a reluctant demon killer, he’s good at his job, he just doesn’t apply himself.
Love how the couple come together and work at both their new relationship and the demons that are planning to take over the city.
Autism is always a sensitive subject to write about, but it was well written, and I can’t wait to see if the author brings out another book.
