There was fear in his eyes, but longing and desire resided in there too.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Gavin Medici, the owner of The Unicorn’s Horn, has settled the arrangement made with the incubus Taz-rial, and within hours of completing his pact, the pleasure house is overwhelmed with customers and reservations.

Corbin, the witch boy who cast the spell that invited Taz-rial has an old client suddenly return. But in the middle of his skin session with his date, Corbin’s old wound begins to fester. He’s never told anyone that he’s infected. And he certainly hasn’t shared that the source of the infection is a flesh-eating ghoul.

As the undead virus begins to take hold, the boys of the pleasure house band together to save him, but in the end, it’s Taz-rial who saves the day…for an additional small price.

Is the cost worth it?

Point of view:
1st person for Medici’s chapters. 3rd person for everyone else.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 2 in JP Jackson’s Skin Sessions serial. A great short story, but definitely intended to be read after book 1, Demon at the Doorstep. As such, this book & review contain spoilers to the first one.

Again, Jackson is able to further develop a growing cast into unique and memorable characters. Sections from more perspectives than Sir & Corbin mean getting to know all the boys even better.

What’s life going to be like at The Unicorn’s Horn with a Demon as benefactor? A mix of horror, suspense, and mystery with a dash of romance and humor.

Easy to read in a few hours but hard to put down. I can’t wait for the 3rd installment.

Content Warnings:
Be sure to check the CWs on Jackson’s website.
