More About the Author
I've been writing since I was twelve years old. There's just something about creating a story that I like. It's always fun to try to come up with something that hasn't been done, or is unique in some way. It's fun to build a character, give him a personality and background.

I loved it! The main character Alex realizes he's going through changes, but its not the normal boyhood to manhood changes, but instead he finds out he's part demon! Sometimes I started to wonder if I was going to get bored with the book, as this isn't my normal type of paranormal romance I like to read, but the author managed to keep me wondering what was going to happen next through out each page. I felt like I didn't want to put the book down because I really needed to read the next page to see what Alex was up to.
I wish the second book was out already! I hate it when you finish the first book in a series and realize 'Oh No! The next book isn't available yet.'
P.S. I loved Alex's pets at the end of the book. They added a cute factor into something you wouldn't have expected.
What does this have to do with Demonspawn, you ask? Well, I had my brand new and quite lovely Kindle with me. And on that Kindle was Demonspawn, which was suddenly and unexpectedly put to the test of whether it could keep me from dwelling on the fact that my toes were slowly becoming frostbitten.
Plot: Alex Teague, the main character, is an ordinary man with an extraordinary past. I don't think I'm giving anything away when I say that he discovers that he's part demon, because one can deduct that from the title and it's in the book description. Being part demon comes with a lot of pretty neat and special powers, and we discover them along with Alex on his journey toward self-discovery. The ending grabs you by the throat (no vampire pun intended, or at least, not really) and keeps you drawn in until you have to finish.
Other creatures populate Alex's world, namely vampires and ghosts, and Alex's job is to deal with an assortment of bizarre situations. (I am happy to note that none of these involve a sparkly vampire.) Woven into the plot is Alex's longtime friend Cindy, for whom he has romantic inclinations on which he doesn't dare act for fear of losing her friendship.
Setting: The story takes place in several places. It starts with Alex in kindergarten, then shifts to high school, then on to (primarily) Alex's apartment where he lives as a young adult. We go along with him to several different places, including his mysterious birthplace, and, of course, other worlds.Read more ›
The first person narrative, however, often gets in the way of the story. Alex is not a good storyteller, and tends to focus on very mundane things while skimping on the meat of his own story. His focus is all over the place, and the reader is often unsure if something he is going on about is actually part of the story or just him reminiscing to himself. In particular, the first third of the book is bogged down with rather dull conversations between Alex and his friends that are no more interesting then eavesdropping on a bunch of high school kids at the mall.
The plot tightens up and gains more focus by Chapter Eleven, when Alex finally confronts his mother about who his parents really were. From there, Bullion pulls in the narrative much more and the conversations feel more organic and relevant to the plot. It is well worth reading through the slow start to get to the main story arch. Alex is an engaging and sympathetic character that, by the end of the novel, you will want to keep following.
