About the Author

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting, banking, and a (very) brief teaching career before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing--and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Icily controlled and focused solely on gaining vengeance against the demon who 'raised' him, Nicholas St Croix, is human but - having learned to think like a demon in order to survive - he is just a step way from being a demon himself. So when Ash, who has no memories from 'Before', comes looking for clues to her past wearing a familiar face, Nicholas is quick to strike a bargain - She'll help him find his 'Mother' and he'll help her find out 'who' she is - while planning on using Ash as bait.

It always amazes me how different each of the Guardian books are from each other, and though Demon Marked doesn't have the fiery sensuality of Demon Forged or the brilliant scheme in the background like Demon Blood, the development in the relationship between Ash and Nicholas, and Khavi's use of them to bring about a significant event in the series arc, are both really interesting.

Don't worry, there still is some steamy payoff in the romance, but it comes late in the book - with a decent amount of tension building coming before. But what I found fascinating is that from the start as the pair interact with each other, both characters are on the lookout for nuances and clues into each other - knowing better than to take an 'enemy' at face value - and often the act of hiding a reaction is quite telling. And I really liked how both Ash and Nick actually go from being emotionally blank to being passionate over the course of the story.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I cannot believe I did this to myself again. I opened this book and didn't stop until I had inhaled it. And it was so good to revisit this world, but now I'm horribly aware of the looooong wait for the final book. And it's Michael's book, so that just makes it even harder. I don't want to say goodbye, but I want it so bad. I know I'm not going to be able to hold out a whole year. I'm going to crack and have to reread them all to torture myself some more.

I was really surprised to discover how different this entry felt from the earlier books in this series. That's not a bad thing, I actually liked seeing things from another perspective, but it was unexpected. I think if you were completely new to the series you could jump into this book without a lot of the same issues you would experience by jumping into one of the other ones. The third book, Demon Night, also seems like an easy place to jump in. I DO NOT recommend it, however, because I think this series is best experienced from the beginning, so you can watch each twist and turn develop in the story arc. And I seriously cringe in horror over the thought of someone starting with this book and spoiling themselves for the intense events in Demon Forged.

One of the most surprising things about this book was how removed it was from the Guardians. The hero tried his hardest to steer clear of them so he could fulfill his own mission, so we spent most of the story solely focused on Ash and Nicholas. We occasionally cut away to spend some time in Taylor's POV (squee!) and eventually get some time with the Guardians, but for the most part it's just them. Luckily, they were great together. Ash was especially hilarious, owing to her problem feeling emotion, and watching Nicholas become frustrated by her lack of memory was fun.

In a stunning blend of action, moral tension, and romance, the book Demon Night grabs all of your attention and does not let go, put some time aside for this one. The main and supporting characters of each novel grow and develop into stronger more admirable people and past characters continue to play important roles (you even slip into their perspectives on occasion).

Meljean Brook's world is a modern one inhabited by Guardians, Demons, Nosferatu and Vampires. The Demaons and Nosferatu are Angels that did not side with God in the war in heaven. Demons faught against God while Nosferatu stood on the sidelines (ending up living on earth). There is evil in the book that is deserving death, but the actions of those on the side of good are more balanced. The Guardians are, after-all, humans that sacrificed their lives in order to save the life of another from the harm caused by a Demon or Nosferatu (and maybe even a vampire, I am not sure). It is too complex to break it all down but that is enough to get the general idea.

You should simply be aware that it is a well realized world and the story arc for the series has as much momentum as the romantic arc found in each particular story in the series. Be warned, you will want to know about previous works, either after reading this one or before, and so I would recommend starting from the beginning.

If you have discovered the authors Nalini Singh (psy-changlings), Ilona Andrews, Faith Hunter (Skinwalker), Larissa Ione, Carolyn Crane, Harry Connolly (Twenty Palaces Novel), and Richard Kadrey (Sandman Slim), then Meljean Brook is an author you would devour with equal pleasure. I have read all of these authors works, that I am aware of, and Meljean stands as high or higher than all of them.
