The Demon Lover by Carol Goodman Review

The Demon Lover

Fairwick Chronicles Book One

By Carol Goodman writing as Juliet Dark

Callie McFay’s dreams are haunted, every night she has the same erotic encounter with a handsome stranger. What she assumes are just vivid dreams turn out to be an encounter with an incubus wanting nothing more than for her to love him. This is only the tip of the story as Callie has started teaching at Fairwick College and after her encounters with the incubus her colleagues assemble to aid her and she learns that most everyone at the college is not who they seem to be.

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

There is no way I could do this novel justice, for one there are three main story lines to this book instead of the usual one and to tell you each of them is most likely going to spoil on or another of the twists that happen so regularly. Though the novel is a bit busy it makes it interesting as you have no idea what scene will lead to which conclusion. I had a ton of fun reading this one, not only is Callie a highly likable character but the surrounding cast each has their own interesting story. The romance is superb and the bonds that Callie creates make this more than just your average romance novel. I cannot wait to find out more about the college and what will happen next, it is a highly unique well written and beautiful novel.

Fire with Fire by Penelope King Review

Fire with Fire

Book Two of the Demonblood Series

By Penelope King

 

Lucky by night and Liora by day the two fell madly in love with Kieron each for their own reasons.  It has been two weeks since Lucky and Liora let him take the ones responsible for their half selves, Kieron was supposed to deliver them for his freedom and return to Lucky and Liora so why hasn’t he come back yet? As time continues to pass and Kieron still has not returned Liora finds herself becoming closer to Tristan, a new student who makes her feel happy and safe which is what she needs right now. Lucky however, finds herself growing closer to her oldest and dearest friend Bones. What will happen when they find out the real reason behind Kieron’s disappearance?

 

Once again Penelope King writes a fantastic book this one is a bit mature yet still young adult based. The author managed to bring to life a beautiful story, I thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between Bones and Lucky it was sweet which is unexpected between two demons. Then you have the story progression which was interesting and immensely moving as the author manages to write not one but two heart wrenching love stories. If you have read her other novels you may find it fun that Penelope King also intertwines her other series with this one subtlety yet in an interesting manner. I can’t wait to see what Penelope King comes up with next she definitely ended this book with an unexpected twist making sure that you will want more from this series.

A Demon Made me Do It By Penelope King Review

A Demon Made Me Do It

Demonblood Series Book One

By Penelope King

 

 Liora was born half demon, one day she was playing in the woods with her firends when two girls came upon them killing Liora’s friends and splitting Liora into human by day and a demon of justice by night, Lucky. Lucky is determined to exact her revenge on the twins who had cursed her into this half-life but Liora only wants to be a normal high school girl and make it through her senior year. But when she meets Kieron her entire world is turned upside down and she begins to fall in love with him knowing that she can never be with anyone because of the life she endures, what she doesn’t realize is Kieron is hiding his own secret and will she be able to forgive him when she finds out that he isn’t what he seems and what happens if he finds out about Lucky?

 

This was a great book if being possessed by a demon isn’t bad enough try sharing an entire life with one and then having to wake up hung-over without having the fun of drinking. Penelope King managed to create an intricate and beautiful story and added just enough twists and turns to make it captivating but not confusing. Not only do the main characters have to deal with falling in love but there are also unexplained murders add on top of it the conflicts each “character” must overcome it is truly remarkable. The author took multiple personalities to a whole new level with this book, it is such an interesting and fun idea I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

The Spaces Between by Martin Gibbs Review

The Spaces Between

By Martin Gibbs

“We are all complex knots, interwoven and intertwined.”

Qainur and Zhy meet in the local tavern Qainur is a traveling mercenary and Zhy is the local drunk. Qainur manages to convince Zhy to accompany him on his journey north to find a wizard who may be able to teach him magic. Along the way they are joined by Torplug who is on his way home after studying magic at the university. The three end up having to fight for their lives as they are hunted by demons and elite warriors’ known as the Knights of the Black Dawn. Why we travel with the three unlikely companions we are also introduced to Blimb, a simple minded man who is able to talk with Zhy’s deceased father, Zhy’s father begs for Blimb’s help saying his son is in grave danger and only Blimb can help him. But that is only one twist of the knot in this story, we also join Blimb’s father on his journey to protect the temple in the north that is the only thing that stands in the way of a horde of demons over taking the world.

Each story is complex and beautifully interwoven in this novel. At first it seemed a bit slow but the further I got into the book the more I became entranced. Martin Gibbs did a wonderful job, just as I was getting angry with the book Martin Gibbs completely blindsides you and has you wondering what in the world is going on. It was absolutely unexpected and extremely addictive I definitely recommend giving this book a try and if Martin Gibbs wanted to guarantee you would read the next book he could not have ended this one any better.
