5, No Heat

Two men…separated by thousands of years, cultures, and customs…and in love with the same woman…

All grad student James Tucker Upchurch wanted was to earn summer credit on an archaeological dig to Central America…and to marry his fiancĂ©e, Shannon. All Semris wanted was to escape the monotony of a millennia-old life, and the burdens being a demon king, and the son of the Mayan God of Death, have placed upon him.

For five thousand years, the misplaced Dark Lords of Hell have been trapped in this world, ruling the Mayan city of Nikte-Uaxac. While elsewhere civilizations rise and fall, they and their subjects remain unchanged, until Twenty-first Century intruders appear, stealing from them their most precious possession, the Emperor himself…

Tuck never expected to lose his girl to a demon nor to be given immortality, and Semris never thought he’d experience mortal love, but when the current world meets a more ancient one, everything and everyone they know will be changed.

My Review:
I wasn't sure if I was going to like Dark God Descending, by the end of page one I was captivated by the story. It's spellbinding and nothing about the book is predictable. I never knew what was going to happen next and that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning the pages.
This book has it all, characters that are thrilling to read about, just enough history and detail and a villain that makes the reader want to choke him.

The unlikely friendship of James Tucker Upchurch (Tuck) and Semris works because of Mr. de Vissage's fantastic world building and the way he writes it. It's very engaging and I wanted Tuck to succeed in helping Semris escape.

All the characters do a great deal of growing throughout the book and the story moves along nicely. There's never a dull moment and a lot of action.

Dark God Descending has such a different take on vampires that makes it so unique. It's really a love story that the reader doesn't know how it will end until the very last page. I would really love to read more about Shannon, Semris, David, Tuck, Ne'all and his wife. You don't want to miss the magnificent book, so grab your copy today.
