The Demon in Me isn’t the only book (about demons) I have out this month! MAY IS DEMON MONTH IN THE ROWENVERSE.
Two fantastic reviews for Demon Princess: Reign Check, my second young adult fantasy, from Kirkus and Booklist!
Nikki Donovan still isn’t used to the idea that she’s a demon princess, heiress to a vast netherworld called the Shadowlands (Reign or Shine, 2009). She’s happy to be back to the normal, boring halls of high school until a hot foreign-exchange student, Rhys, enrolls. Rhys, who is actually the faery king, ends any hope Nikki had for normalcy. To further complicate Nikki’s life, her best friend is training to become a demon slayer, and the boy who took her to the winter dance might know exactly what she is. News of a prophecy that states Nikki will bring about the apocalypse shakes the Underworld, so Nikki travels into hostile territory to confront the Underworld council. Underworld politics and a love triangle among Rhys, Nikki and Nikki’s Shadow boyfriend Michael keep the story moving along. Nikki’s disbelief that she’s a major demon player brings humor, but she is never obnoxious or overly witty. This volume should leave readers breathless and wondering what royalty and love will bring to their horned heroine. — Kirkus Reviews
“Half-human, half-demon Nikki Donovan continues her intriguing tightrope between her semi-normal highschool persona and the knowledge that she is the potential heir to the Shadowlands throne. In this installment, she learns that her best friend, Melinda, is a demon-slayer-in-training; the faery king, Rhys, has enrolled in high school; and a dragon oracle has prophesized that Nikki, “the first Darkling born in a thousand years, will single-handedly destroy us all.” Another chilling, sometimes violent, romantic fantasy that moves from the mundane world to the Shadowlands to the dungeons of the Underground before Nikki can finish her Christmas shopping.”— Booklist
