Rell has lived in the Shadow World for thirteen years as a Demon Bane, the formerly vivacious young woman now the demonic enemy of the immortal Bringers. But when she is given the chance to become human again—and a full-powered Bringer—Rell isn’t sure if it’s better to be a demon in the Shadow World or to risk her life for her humanity.For two years, Siban had been tortured in the Bane prison, only to fall in love with the beautiful demon who helped him escape. Tormented by the thought of never seeing her again, he maintains a life of solitude. So, when Rell’s human body is rescued from the Shadow World, he will do anything to be with her—even if it means challenging death to become a Bringer, too.But once their Bringer transformations and training are completed, Siban and Rell must join a mission to go deep in the Shadow World to rescue others trapped by the Demon Bane King. And what they discover destroys everything they knew about the Demon Bane. The lovers must learn to trust themselves, each other, and their new powers if they’re going to make it out alive.

Holiday Interview with the Cast From
Chain of Illusions by Boone Brux
This came in a little late but I do hope that the interview will encourage you to read the book more.
First question, what was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
Rell: I’d have to say it was when Siban became a full-blooded Bringer so he could help me transform from Demon Bane back to Bringer. He really didn’t want to, but he did it anyway—for me.
Siban: (Nods) I was rather amazing—in a romantically heroic way.
Luc: I once had a woman name her breasts after me. The right was Luc and the left was Le Daun. It made love making very interesting.
Jade: (Clears throat) And narcissistic, I’m sure.
Luc: All right then, what was the most romantic thing anyone ever did for you?
Jade: None of your business.
Luc: Come on, give it up.
Jade: You lead off with naming breasts and expect me to share a special memory? Forget it. Can you go to someone else please?
Icarus (Son of the Demon King): I don’t understand what you mean by romantic.
Sha-hera (Captain of the Succubus Army): A man once told me he loved me.
Icarus: We’re you getting ready to kill him?
Icarus: Was he enthralled.
Sha-hera: Not even a little.
Icarus: Then you’re lying.
Okay, second question: What is something special you do for the holidays?
Rell: Well, considering this will be my first since being turned to a demon, I’m not sure what special things I’ll do.
Siban: We’ll make our own traditions and each one will be special because we’re together.
Luc: Sweet Sainted Ones, I think I’m going to throw up. I like to partake in a little—or a lot of mulled wine and tell stories by the fire.
Jade: I like being with my family. And since my mother remarried, I now have ten new brothers and sisters. I hope they don’t expect gifts.
Icarus: Sucking six or seven souls and then having everybody leave me the bloody hell alone would be very special.
Sha-hera: I have to agree with Icarus on this. Several killings, but instead stomping off to be alone, I’d also engage in a hearty sparring session with my succubae soldiers. The perfect holiday activity.
Rell: Unless you’re the one getting killed.
What is your favorite gift you’ve given or received?
Ravyn: Most definitely it was the dagger Rhys gave me. Sure, we were in the heat of battle, but it saved my life.
Rhys: No question, the best gift I ever received was Ravyn’s maidenhood.
Ravyn: Best gift I ever gave as well.
Luc: (Reaches to take Jade’s hand) Every moment I spend with Jade is a precious gift.
Jade: The fact that he’s willing to lie through his teeth to keep the waters calm is the best gift Luc can give me.
Icarus: The best gift I’ve ever given myself was when I ripped out Sha-hera’s throat and sent her back to the Shadow World. (heavy sigh) That was a great night.
Sha-hera: The best gift I ever received was when the Demon King publically humiliated Icarus, stripping him of all authority, and put me in charge. (heavy sigh) That was a great day.
Thanks to all of you for taking the time to share your holiday thoughts. It’s been very…enlightening.
Boone Brux’s writing drips with experiences from real life. Addicted to anything that might make a good story, she weaves tales ranging from dark fantasy to humorous romance. Settled in the icy regions of Alaska with the love of her life and twin daughters, it’s not uncommon to find her tapping away on her iPad on a windy beach or the barren tundra. Be warned, everyone is fodder for one of Boone’s novels.
