#MissionBBA Review: Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong (@NetGalley)(Rating 4.25 Wine Glasses)

Posted September 9, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 9 Comments


From Goodreads: Fledging guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission—to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure–seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…

After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy–sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries–old feelings. Now, their high–stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell.or a deliciously hot heaven.

Note: I can’t tell if Where Demons Fear to Tread is a beginning of a new series or not. I truly hope that it is because I enjoyed the unique Angels and Demons world building that Stephanie Chong created!

What I Loved: In Where Demons Fear to Tread, we are introduced to a world of Guardian Angels and Arch Demons. I really enjoyed reading as the two forces battle for human souls and power. Though they both fight from different places within themselves (evil vs good), it was amazing what they would do to reach their ultimate goal. The fact that Stephanie Chong explained how, in her world, a person can become an Angel or Demon was both interesting and well done. I hope this is a series because I would like the world explored further.

What I Liked: Serena and Julian were great lead characters that you wanted to see together despite their opposite beginnings. They needed each other to become the best “them” that they could be.I have to admit that I am more looking forward to learning more about Arielle, Luciana, Nick and even Meredith. The secondary characters really rocked!

Complaints: None

Why I gave it a 4.25: This was a great read that I hope turns into a series. I would recommend it to anybody looking for a great world building PNR.

    Damn another one I added (…and bought) after seeing your review on GR. Now I also want to read this tonight…

    Now I'm curious. I've read several other reviews of this book and NOTHING was mentioned of romance. Up until your review I was under the impression this was an Urban Fantasy.

  3. Melissa (Books and T

    Great minds! ;D I really enjoyed the characters too! I liked Meredith and hope to see more of her in the future!

    Ha! Second review I read of this book today, which is funny because I hadn't heard of it before this day! I'm love the sound of Serena and Julian together. And I'm a big fan of well developed secondary characters! Finally, an angel themed book I think I'd really enjoy.
