One wet, freezing night, a beautiful angel and a monstrous demon seek each other’s secret company. Yoshiel and Labal would never be allowed to meet on normal terms, but they’re desperate: they’re both trapped in the human world, and have had a horrific penalty extracted from them by their masters. Only they know what they’ve done to deserve punishment, and only they can appreciate just how ironic and cruel that punishment is. Will they be left to suffer forever in this strange limbo state, or is it a test to see how they may learn from each other? Their forbidden meeting will either prove their undoing – or their release.
As always Clare London writes with a confidence and clarity, which means the reader can relax knowing the author is in charge of the story. This story relates to a brief interaction between a demon and an angel. Another example of how to write in the short story format – Clare London uses the brevity to strip back usual story requirements and create mood and intrigue through shadows and half facts. The eponymous Limbo refers to place, time and the effect a strange punishment has wrought on these immortal beings.
The percentage of very explicit sex to emotion or exposition meant it was not my favourite of Clare London’s works, but the premise of the story was fascinating.
One of those reads that you immediately want to discuss.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
