Review: The Demon King and I by Candace Havens (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted February 7, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 3 Comments


From Goodreads: First in a terrific new series featuring wealthy paranormal party girls—from the author of the Charmed books.

The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.

Gillian, the eldest, is a sensation in the art world— this world, that is. In her other world she’s the Assassin, a knockout who snuffs out dimension-jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth in darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.

Bought from Bookstore

What I Loved: Snark? Check! Kick Butt Leading Lady with great clothes? Check! Hot Half-Demon Stubborn Man? Check!  This was snarky fun at its best and you just couldn’t help but fall in love with Gillian and Arath.  They were perfect for each other despite the fact that she has been deemed with the responsibility to kill any of his kind that uses the portals to earth. That is the price you pay when you are a Caruthers sister and guardians of Earth.  Oh well because Gillian’s dating life has always been messy.  There were some great storylines in this book and some teases into the future books that make you want to pick up the next one soon!

What I Liked:  The Caruthers family in general.  They are complicated, smart, fashionable, and multi-taskers that make you go WOW!  This book was defiantly a good launch to this series.

Complaints: None

Why I gave it a 4: Snark, Fun, Hot Leading Man, and my face was in a permanent grin when I finished 🙂  Reason enough for a 4!

Who would I recommend it too:  PNR readers that like Chicklit because this was a great cross between the two!

    I love female leads that can be described as kick butt. Seeing the cover I can total see the PNR- chick lit cross. =) Great review!

    Oh, for the love of Snark! And no complaints? Looks like you found a fun, new series to enjoy. Yes, this is going on my wishlist.

    Oh snark! Clearly a book for me:) I haven't heard of this one before but I love kick butt leading ladies and stubborn men, so I need to pick this one up. Although that cover is kind of strange, I'm pretty sure my body doesn't curve quite like that:)
