Where I received the book: I received this book in exchange for an honest review through the author.
Summary: Adriana has returned to her kingdom and ascended the throne as the rightful Demon King. However, she finds her home on the brink of war. Heartbroken and drained from a forbidden love, Adriana must find a way to assume her responsibilities, stop a war, and somehow unravel the family secrets that threaten to destroy her world. It’s a tremendous feat, but one she may be destined for.
i wrote this review ages ago and i just realised i never posted it???
I zoomed through Demon Princess pretty quickly, I was a little disappointed that it took me longer to read this one. I have to admit, it’s not nearly as good as the first, but it’s still a worthwhile read.
i absolutely love how Demon King was a step up from the first. there were more plot developments, twists, all kinds of things keeping you on your toes. some stuff i was expecting (the fairy thing), but otherwise there were some good twists that i didn’t expect at all.
the first character i want to talk about, and what a dick. seth. i don’t know what it was (bad writing or the way he was raised) but how can someone be so stupid and blind when facts are clearly presented in front of you? he was very annoying and i think I’ve grown a particular hatred towards him.
with sadi, i wasn’t expecting that. nothing makes sense anymore. why. the thing at the end makes no sense to me, even after everything’s explained. i can’t trust him anymore, no matter how hard i try. he was one of my favourite characters, now i refuse to believe. also, i imagined him as an arab guy (i don’t know where it came from, i just did) but now either he isn’t or “distant relation” adriana potentially is.
on the note of adriana, she was so damn annoying in this book. in demon princess, i wanted to defend her and whatnot, but in this one i wanted to punch her and make her do something useful.
okay and keldrin was annoying too.
overall, i rate this book 4 stars. i know, my review is s*** but negative-based reviews are the most informative. as a whole, the book was great and i recommend to most. just those few things mentioned above- which were mostly things that bugged me rather than “what i hate”. i definitely recommend giving it a go.
