Product Description

After a blood soaked nightmare, Alexandra’s life begins to change. From the untimely and brutal death of her Aunt Tamy, to discovering untold powers that flow through her viens, she will never again be the same.
Lord Balthazar, a demon prince that is fighting for control of his newfound kingdom, is in desperate need of a human. As luck, or fate, would have it, one lands right in his lap. The only problem is she proves to be almost more than the stoic demon lord can handle.
After a series of adventures the two form an unexpected bond and find themselves drawn to each other. But when Alex learns of Balthazar’s betrayal, it threatens to tear them both apart.

I stopped reading after 'she didn't take a shower and was something something and "smelly" which was I think the 1st or second page, so my rating does not qualify as a true rating because I didn't continue reading...that said I like my female leads to be sort of untouchable cool...being a smelly lead turns me right off...sorry might be petty to you but it allll makes sense to me!

HASH(0x9f249210) out of 5 stars Interesting first book! Sept. 13 2013
By Kayla Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book wasn't my first venture into demons, but it was the first to make me want to read more about them! I would have given a five star rating for the spectacular writing style. I loved it. I was getting caught up and saying out loud "Gah! Will all you guys stop manhandling her!" Alex was very relatable and I liked her almost instantly. She was fiery and not the damsel-in-distress type which I liked. I hate those types of girls :P It's hard to relate to them, because I would never just be like "Oh! Please save me, men! I'm so helpless!" I am a fighter so I like my heroines to be the same. Though at the same time I like the alpha males! Such a contradiction, I know.

Overall, I would recommend it. I will buy the next book in the series as well. I want to know what happens! Alex just started to discover her powers and a relationship became possible between her and Balthazar and then the book ended. I don't usually like those kinds of endings, but it is going to get me to buy the next book in the series if it goes on sale. I'm too cheap to pay 4.99 lol

HASH(0x9f278b04) out of 5 stars Could not get enough Nov. 22 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was awesome. Everything about this book made me what more. I had a hard time in the beginning while father and son argued about taking a mate and I found myself looking for a reason not to scream what ever happened to "mating" for love!?! When the only way to unlock powers is a knife to the chest, I wanted to cry "what happens when she just dies!!!"

Then we enter into a totally alternate universe run by Lord Sultans that are killed in their sleep then to be replaced by the oldest prince that has a totally different view of how the kingdom should be run, some in a good way but others in a not so good way. Forcing a sibling to marry two people that the oldest doesn’t desire is no way for an older brother to behave. The chemistry between Belthazar and Alexandra is unmistakable after only a few meetings but neither party wants to admit the attraction for the other, which leads to several "girl" kidnappings that are supposed to be taken as a rescue mission. Then here comes the knight in demon armor that takes back Alexandra only to in short time periods lose her once again to another who wants to rule the kingdom.

I have to say I really enjoyed this book. It was very unique and intriguing, especially one very hot tempered and sexy demon lord. I could not get enough of Balthazar. He was so tough as nails, but couldn't help but have a soft spot for Alexandra. I really loved that.

Alexandra is a human who found herself in another world filled with demons, dragons and many other fantastic creatures. She was such a likeable character. She didn't let anyone push her around, not even when faced with creatures much faster and stronger than herself. I also liked that she could find good in so many of the creatures including a head strong and power hungry demon lord. I found myself laughing out loud at the frustration she caused Balthazar.

Great characters, steamy scenes and lots of brilliant creatures. I can't wait to begin book two.

I love the book primarily because I love this type of genre and the author did a great job with word play. I would recommend this to friends and family so they can experience a new type of world full of demons and magic, I would hope that they could imagine themselves in Alex's place. I will be reading this over and over forever. Again, the author did an amazing job of word play. I will definitely be reading the rest of the saga.

HASH(0x9f278924) out of 5 stars None too evil demons,weak romance Dec 9 2013
By North - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The demon world has been separated from our world for centuries. Humans are a myth.

When one of the demon lord is assassinated, his son, Balthazar, inherits the throne. But in order to keep it, he has to develop his powers and the help of one human is required.

I found little to like about the story. Alexandra, the heroine, does nothing. She has no will power, follows Balthazar rather blindly and interferes in dangerous situations. She starts to whole adventure by following a old guy in the forest without thinking : gee, maybe it's not a good idea to follow a complete stranger away from the camping site and my friends, in the dark. If it were an horror flick, she'd be gone, baby gone.

The demon world is, for some reasons, reminiscent of arab culture. Tents, clothing (the famous bra and loose skirt for the ladies), concubines, dances, zenana, the submissive attitudes of women, the war lords etc. No explanations of why, on all our cultures, this one was the prevalent one in the Demon's world. Maybe it's the author idea of absolute hell ? I found it peculiar.

The romance part was weak. Balthazar was clearly more preoccupied by war, politics and his powers than Alexandra. Apart from his looks,Alexandra has really no reason to fall for Balthazar since he spends most of his time either ignoring her wishes or telling her to stay put and shut up. I guess the lust factor is strong. They almost have sex. Almost being the operative word. Call me conventional but I expect my demons to be more sexually active.

I'm sorry but he whole thing was,to me, boring. The heroes have no spark, no energy. The demons were not evil. They sounded like ordinary people with some magical powers. I admit my enjoyment was lessened by my north american cultural expectations of what a demon and a demonic world is supposed to be. For this reason, I gave it two stars. Maybe another reader would not react the same way as I did.
