the title made me buy it (demonblood1)
on 9 March 2014
this is obviously a 'teen' read but the title grabbed me (oh how id love to have that excuse!), and when i started reading i found the premise really fresh and original. i loved the idea of demons who weren't all bad and had 'jobs' befitting their talents. lucky/lioras 'split personality' was also clever and im sure appeals to all of us who would like to let our 'naughty' side out with no repercussions. i liked tatianas character and the love interest which just about survived the over done love triangle by being a sort of quadrangle; but then disaster of a "twighlight (yawn) saga" nature struck when both sides of lucky/liora suddenly wanted both male 'lead' characters!
- ive purposely forgotten their names, as apart from one of them turning into a slavering beast now and then, (decide for yourselves who and when!), they are equally wet and pathetic and interchangeable in their compulsory 'gorgeousness' -
oh how bored i am of boys running around carrying girls in their arms! its not romantic or cool, its very silly; also however hard i tried i simply could not figure out the motorbike tandem in a frock thing. was she side saddle? backwards? upside down and inside out?! perhaps he could get a side-car fitted a la 'wallace and grommit' for future use?! anyway, as you may have gathered my four star review was waning as the general silliness headed towards 'twighlight' and im sad the story veered from what had promised to be a strong, very original and intetesting start to a series i might have enjoyed. as it is i wont be reading any more demon style adventures but will wish all the oh so beautiful types all the best with their battles against the angels (oh hang on, they're demons after all! or are they? are they goodies? . . badies?. . (they certainly wont be uglies!), angels or demons (save us from dan brown references), im afraid i no longer care
