Blog Tour Review+Giveaway: "Iniquity" (The Ascend #1) by Melody Winter


Iniquity

(Ascent, #1)
Publication date: October 25th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Romance
Athena Harrow is about to turn twenty-one, but there will be no celebration. What is there to celebrate when the world is ruled by demons?
She hates the darkness the demons brought with them and longs for the light to return to the world—a world she only vaguely remembers. The people in her forest village blindly accept the life the demons forced upon them, even tolerating the yearly ascension ceremony where all the girls who have turned twenty-one are either sent away to serve the Master Demon or left in the village and forced to procreate.
But Paymon, the assigned village demon, selects a different role for Athena, a role that pits her against the village. While she adapts to her new life, Erebus, a younger, more powerful demon, arrives, and Athena must play a dangerous game with his emotions in return for information about the demon’s reign of darkness.
As Athena’s dreams of restoring the light begin to fade, her life with Erebus takes an unexpected turn, and this time it’s her life being put to the test.
Set in the forest around Buttercrambe in North Yorkshire, England, INIQUITY explores the frightening, darker side of romance and the uncontrolled emotions it can unleash.



REVIEW

I received an e-ARC in exchnage for an honest review. 

An interesting dystopian series which takes place in England and it has to do a lot with the demons! Athena lives in a world where there is no light and each area is ruled by demons and their army. She and her people struggle to live until the day Paymon, the Master of the village, asks too much from Athena.

The story from there flows smoothly and gives lots of space to character development. I liked Athena, she is strong not hesitant to use everything she has in order to learn and when Erebus arrives, their dialogues are quite an easy and almost fun part to read.

I have high expectations of this series, since it kind of ended in a cliffhanger and I wish to read more soon!
