Format: Kindle Edition
"Where Demons Fear to Tread" is a story about heaven and hell competing with each other to gather souls from the human population on earth. Not a new concept, but one that is rarely used in romance. Julian is a Archdemon who is over two centuries old and has risen through hell's hierarchy rather quickly. He hopes to make it even further and is doing all he can to gain notice from those higher up. Despite his "evil" exterior, there is a small part of him that isn't so bad. He doesn't even recognize this good side in him until a beautiful female angel comes along to bring it out.

Serena is a newly-made angel who died only a year before after trying to save injured people in a car accident. She was only twenty-three at the time and didn't have much of a chance to live life. Because of this, she is still very innocent to the ways of the world. Yet she believes in saving souls and giving them a chance at redemption. This made her an excellent candidate for the Company of Angels where she has been given the duty of guardian. Though her heart and intentions are in the right place, there is a lot for her to learn. Particularly after she runs into Julian while trying to save her latest "charge" from destroying himself on drugs and alcohol. The sparks fly between the angel and demon, but their opposing sides mean nothing good can come from their relationship. Or can it?

When I saw the story summary for this book, I bought it right away. The positive reviews convinced me it had to be good. Unfortunately, I didn't read the negative ones and wish I had now. Putting an angel and demon at odds with each other and making them eventually fall in love is a great idea. One that should have kept my attention throughout. Yet the author's delivery didn't work the way it should have.

This is an excellent start to a new series staring Demons and Angels. I would recommend this to all lovers of Paranormal Romance. It's well written, with strong lead characters, Serena, a new angel and Julian the demon. The story is a detour from the usual PR type romance, but the reader still roots for them. There is plenty of action, along with zippy dialogue. Give it a try!

LOVED IT! 25 Aug. 2011
By AlianneP - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I don't usually write book reviews, but I picked up my pen for this one because I was surprised by some of the other reviews. In retrospect, a few of them made good points, but none of that mattered to me as I read the book because I enjoyed it so much! I'm not a professional reviewer, just someone who likes paranormal romance. I realize reading tastes are subjective, but from my perspective, I was fully engaged, entertained, titillated, and yes, even teary at times as I read "Where Demons Fear To Tread". What more can you ask for?

When I bought the book, I scanned the first few pages out of curiosity, intending to put it down and save it for later. That didn't happen. The book immediately drew me in, and once I'd started reading, I didn't put it down. I found the tension between the angel heroine and arch-demon hero compelling, and I wondered all the way to the end how an arch demon could possibly be "saved"? Well he was - in grand style.

I can't wait for the sequel. Here's hoping you all take a chance and enjoy the book as much as I did!

Review: Where Demons Fear To Tread 24 Aug. 2011
By Literary Cravings - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
First Impressions

A guardian angel and an arch demon fighting over the soul a movie star then accidentally fall in love, with each other. Yes please. Really wanted to see how this would play out for them all.

What Worked

I enjoyed the battle of wills between Serena (Guardian Angel) and Julian (Arch Demon). Seeing which one would ultimately succumb to the other did bring some sparks to the page. It had me turning the pages to find out what would happen.

Though this is a romance novel (and we all know how it will ultimately end) Ms. Chong did a good job in the suspense department, keeping me on my toes. Things weren't so overwhelmingly predictable where I could guess every step the characters would take.

The romance between Julian and Serena was hot. I could feel the connection they had towards each other. Though there was that instant attraction, they still had different agendas going on and I enjoyed watching how their growing romance affected their choices.

Could Have Been Better

I would have liked more action and danger within the story. While there was the war of the wills going on mentally there could have been more physical action to amp things up.

Better character development, while the characters interested me I didn't really connect with them like I wanted to. Especially Serena.

I wanted to be engulfed in the story and not some bystander on the outside looking in and that's how I felt for most of the story.


Serena: I didn't really connect with her as much as I wanted. Her personality was more on the innocent side, though she did stand up to Julian most of the time which redeemed her a bit. She was willing to sacrifice herself for the greater good which is a good character trait, showcasing her strength on a different level.

Julian: Was a more interesting character to me, I enjoyed getting to know his past and watch as he evolved from viewing the world one way to the other.


Where Demons Fear to Tread was a good, interesting book that caught my attention with its plotline and somewhat kept it throughout the story. I enjoyed the battle of wills between good and evil and how Julian and Serena slowly fell in love. Though I wished I could have connected to the characters more and there was faster heart pounding action. All in all I enjoyed the book, will I pick up the next book in the series? Maybe, if the story captures my interest. Readers can if this one a try and see what they think.

Predictable, But Hot 30 Oct. 2011
By Book Sake - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Where do I start with this book? Ah yes, the predictable, boring Venn Diagram of romance novels - the dichotomy of good and evil with overlapping qualities, providing ample room for sexual tension. Nailed it! Unfortunately, Where Demons Fear to Tread wasn't at all what I expected. I knew there would be some sort of romance between Serena and Julian, but I didn't think the entire book would revolve solely around that. Adding to the tedium is the fact that their relationship and its future are completely foreseeable from page 1, yet you're stuck reading the incessant push and pull between the two characters. Julian believes he can corrupt sweet, innocent Serena and blackmails her along the way to get what he wants. Serena repeatedly resists, but with hardly any fortitude whatsoever (Really? Right away you want to jump the demon's bones?). I spent some time mulling over Serena's misplaced lust for Julian and there seems to be only one logical explanation for an angel without a shred of willpower ...Axe body wash.

After revising my longstanding postulation to `all angels are pure whores', I hoped that Serena would follow suit and finally succumb to this debonair demon for my sake, `cause Julian's sexy bod was the only thing worth reading about. Despite thoroughly enjoying his pectoral muscles, I felt that the author should have focused more on Nick, since, ya know, his life is hanging in the balance and whatnot. But alas, Where Demons Fear to Tread reads like most romance novels I've had the misfortune of picking up - total disregard for any sort of external plot, cheesy lines, and sex...lots of sex. I wouldn't recommend this book to any of my friends. However, I'm sure fans of this genre and my widowed grandmother would love it.
2/5 for getting me all hot and bothered, though.

Sexy Angels and Demons Story 17 Aug. 2011
By AvidReader47 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong is a prime example of why I love Net Galley. They introduce me to new authors that instantly become favorites. Ms. Chong hits it on the mark with this first installment of The Company of Angels series. Serena St. Clair is a guardian angel and a yoga instructor who is sent to look after Hollywood's hottest young star, Nick Ramirez. Serena follows Nick to the nightclub Devil's Paradise run by Archdemon Julian Ascher. At once Julian senses Serena's presence and goes after her. He tries unsuccessfully to seduce her and lets her go. This is not the end of Julian's pursuit of Serena. He wants to have her as his own even though she is an angel and he a demon. The Company of Angel's supervisor, Arielle, has other plans for Julian and warns Serena: "he has the power to destroy you." Julian tries to manipulate Serena in more ways than one even involving her brother who thinks she's dead. The ultimate test is when Julian brings Serena to Las Vegas to the opening of his new club. Where Demons Fear to Tread was a sexy paranormal take on the fight between good and evil. I really loved it. Highly recommended. Can't wait for the sequel.

Great debut! 29 Nov. 2011
By Carla Gallway - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Serena St. Clair is a fledging guardian angel from the Company of Angels. She died a year ago at the age of 23 saving a family during a car crash which cost her life. For her sacrifice, she was given another chance at life and has become an angel to try and guide people on the wrong path to the right one. Nick, a Hollywood star is her first assignment. Serena is trying to save Nick with her yoga instructions and her own innate goodness, but since Nick is in love with her, it makes it more challenging because she cares for him as a friend and he resents that. Nick has been losing his way to drugs, alcohol and women, and hangs out in a nightclub owned by Julian Asher, the most powerful arch-demon in Los Angeles. Serena decides that she's willing to take the chance and enter Julian's nightclub to try and save Nick.
Serena becomes entangled in Julian's web of schemes when he threatens Nick's life, the life of her brother (her brother has no idea that Serena is an angel and cannot know that she's back from the dead, which makes it worse because she can't warn him), and the life of Serena's roommate and fellow guardian. Julian decides that there is something about Serena that he's attracted to and he does not like it. He decides the only way to get rid of Serena is to corrupt her too so he blackmails her into spending a week with him.

This is the ultimate battle between good and evil; a demon and an angel. Both of them are incredibly attracted to the other and as they spend the week together and start to learn more about each other. Their feelings are at-odds with both of their jobs and they are both torn and confused as what they should do.

I really enjoyed the story, as well as, Julian and Serena. Serena is truly good person, which is why she was chosen to become an angel. Her life ended way to soon, before she ever had a chance to really live. She is a very responsible person and is trying to do the right thing when it comes to Julian. She is scared and excited about the way Julian makes her feel and her superior is being deliberately vague in how Serena should carry out her assignment and handle Julian. Serena know something more is going on, but no one will give her any more information.

Julian is a total bad boy. He is extremely bitter from being betrayed by a woman he loved that resulted in his human death, and led to his becoming a demon. But as Julian spends the week with Serena, it is not Julian corrupting her, but Serena corrupting Julian. Serena makes him want to be a better person. I loved the interaction between the two of them during their week together at the hotel. Although Julian keeps telling himself he's wooing her to corrupt her, you can see he has some very intense feelings for Serena.

This was a great book. I could not put it down because I was dying to know what Julian was going to do next to woo her, and if Serena was finally going to give into her feelings. There is more to the storyline of Julian and Serena's relationship but I don't want to spoil anything so you'll have to read the book to find out. º

I definitely recommend this book and I am looking forward to the second book in the series. "The Demoness of Waking Dreams" which is expected to release in February 2012.
