SYNOPSIS

For Nikki Donovan, being a teenager can be hell. Literally.

As if trying to fit in at a new school and navigating the social scene isn’t enough stress for her, sixteen-year-old Nikki Donovan just found out that her long-lost father is, in fact, the demon king of the Shadowlands — the world that separates and protects ours from the Underworld. When she is brought there by the mysterious (and surprisingly cute) messenger Michael, she learns that her father is dying, and that he wants her to assume the throne. To complicate matters, a war is brewing between the Shadowlands and the Underworld, her half-demon qualities are manifesting, and her growing feelings for Michael are forbidden. Ruling a kingdom, navigating a secret crush, and still making it home by curfew — what’s a teenage demon princess to do?

REVIEW YYYY1/2

Nikki Donovan and her mom, a romance writer, have lead a bit of a nomadic life as her mother tries to find true love and romance. Soon Nikki's mom remarries, again, and they move to Toronto. Nikki finds the change a blessing as she finally begins to fit in and she becomes best friends with the most popular girl at school and soon has a date with the most handsome boy in school that she crushes on. Life is too good, turning 16 is going to be the best birthday yet...but Nikki should have known better, a good thing can never last.

Nikki finds that turning 16 means much more than she could ever dreamed of. Nikki gets a sticky admirer named Michael; a mysterious boy that has come to take her to visit her father. HOLD UP!! She thought her father was dead? So of course she believes none of it, especially when she is told that her father is actually a Demon King of the shadowlands and she stands to inherit it very soon. Nikki truly thinks Michael is insane.....until...a frightening situation sets her emotions into overdrive and the results ensure that she will never be the same again. Bring on the tiara and the horns.

This wickedly delightful story has everything you could ever want in a book; romance, comedy, suspense with smart and engaging characters. Michelle Rowen's debut effort into the Young Adult realm is spot on brilliant and I cannot rave enough about it. I want to read more about Nikki Donovan as she navigates life being demon royalty while maintaining a curfew. Who ever said that being a princess with horns was going to be easy?

Demon Princess is a fantastic read for both teens and adults alike who wish to have a bit of adventure with a side of demon.

Please visit next month when I have a interview with the wonderful Michelle Rowen. Until then pre-order Demon Princess: Reign or Shine and Demon Princess: Reign Check in 2010

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
