What happens when you combine faeries, demons, the shadow lands and a wicked scary prophecy? You get Nikki Donovan and her non-stop adventures of navigating life as a high school student while also being a demon princess.

With Demon Princess: Reign Check, Michelle Rowen continues her fabulous skills at keeping us glued to our books as we delve deeper into Nikki's role as a demon Princess and all of it's perks and downfalls.

Demon Princess: Reign Check continues shortly after Demon Princess: Reign or Shine ended. with Nikki and her mom (who is single again) maintaining their lives in the same manner, except that Nikki is really a demon Princess. It's a fact that she must keep secret from everyone, but she isn't the only one hiding some pertinent life-altering information. Yet, while trying her best to keep both her existence in both worlds in harmonious balance she receives some disturbing news that put her very existence in great peril. How is a girl supposed to enjoy being sixteen when everything around her is going demonically twisted?

I am so glad that that Michelle Rowen kept up with the adventure and humor factor from the series predecessor. I enjoyed reading about Nikki and her new adventures adjusting to life as a demon princess and thought the deeper world building a great asset to the storyline. I am a sucker for romance and Nikki and her share with her forbidden attachment to Michael and the inescapable attraction to Rhys, the young faery king. I am also a fan of the mystery involving both boys and how it all plays out...yummy.

The only thing that I had issues with is Nikki's BFF, Melinda and her storyline. I would have preferred a bit more of a surprise. Yet that was impossible because the story synopsis basically spilled the proverbial beans with all the information given on the back cover. BOOOO!!! Why do publishers do that? It's not like I did not have an inkling to what might be happening but I would have liked to find out on my own terms.

Demon Princess: Reign Check is a fantastic summer read that will give you just the right amount of paranormal romance and demonic adventure.
