Book: Resurrection
Release: Published August 2, 2011
Reviewer: Believer
In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only home she’s ever known, Ravyn stumbles headlong into the clutches of a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating.

When Rhys realizes the woman he rescued from the Demon Bane is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death.

As the Demon Bane threat escalates, igniting terror and chaos across the realm, Rhys and Ravyn must embark on a perilous journey to unite the last of the Bringers–and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.

In many ways, Brux’s work reminds me of the Patricia Briggs Raven Doulogy series – only more sexy.

Resurrection introduces us to a world caught between two opposing forces, The Bane, demons who live in the Shadow World, and The Bringers, a mythical group of beings dedicated to saving the human race from domination by The Bane. Lady Ravyn Mayfield, orphaned as an infant and left at the doors of Menda Abbey 23 years ago, has always sensed that she was different than the other girls in the Abbey but nothing in her short life has prepared her for the truth. Lured out of the Abbey by a trusted elder only to endure a brutal attack by the demon lord Icarus, Ravyn is saved by the last full blooded Bringer, Rhys Blackwell. Together, Rhys and Ravyn will embark on a journey that will change their lives and the very future of their world.

Boone Brux’s debut novel is occasionally choppy and unfocused but overall Brux has created an intriguing world where things aren’t always what they seem. Resurrection is full of characters imbued with intriguing powers; demons who act as if they have souls; mythical creatures; and, dirty back room politics pitting personal gain against the survival of the human race. The cornerstone of the book is the relationship that develops between Rhys and Ravyn as they seek to unravel the mystery that surrounds her powers and the Bane’s relentless focus on her capture. Rhys struggles to remain stoically dutiful and distant while protecting Ravyn from the Bane, but Ravyn is intent on living for the moment and wholeheartedly embracing the love she feels for Rhys. Sparks fly – literally – as the lovers spar over their obvious attraction.

Resurrection is the first in a three novel series with parts 2 & 3 scheduled for 2012 releases. If Brux can manage to apply the finesse she used in the first chapter of Resurrection to the rest of the novels, I feel that this series will be a hit.

Resurrection by Boone Brux ***1/2 out of 5

Also reviewed by:Patricia Eimer,

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to read story books. She devoured them because they were full of magical possibilities with every turn of the page. Then the little girl grew up and school work occupied more and more of her time. Eventually the little girl graduated from school, trading in poets & prose for business management & autobiographies. Magic was left behind in her quest for the top and the world became a place filled with “paradigm shifts”, ROI & financial reports. Before she knew it, the girl was a woman who felt out of touch with the world’s magic until she met Birth and her sister Death. While Birth filled her with wonder & happiness; Death filled her with sadness & loss. And so one day she set aside the management books and instead picked up a paperback story filled with vampires, shifters & telepaths. Lo and behold, her passion for these stories blossomed and the woman became a believer in the magic of reading, again. My name is Believer9200 and I believe in the magic of stories because they give me hope.
