Lucy Smoke has created a wonderfully original new Reverse Harem series. The fantasy world she has created is richly detailed and multi-layered. The backstory of the spirit guide is incredible and I feel that there is even more to learn. The characters are all fully developed and likable. The men are all distinct. Coen with his steadfast friendship and love, Titus and his need for family, Holden and his feelings of worthlessness, Luca with his charm and energetic playfulness, and Booker with his need to control every situation, solve every problem. They make a fantastic team. Nerys is equally kind and spirited. She's thoughtful, caring, and fun. She doesn't see her own value like her protectors do. She worries more for them than for herself. She doesn't see how they each feel about her, how attracted they are to her. This is endearing, except where Coen is concerned. I don't want his feelings hurt as she develops attractions to the others. She needs to see him as a man, not only her best friend. I have faith that she will work this out. The King is a worthy opponent; dangerous and determined. And the final character that must be mentioned is the spirit guide. While only a voice, he is of utmost importance to the story , maybe the kingdom. I hope that in future books he knows when to be present and when to be absent. Example: When there's danger, be present; when it's a sexy time, be far, far away!
This is a well-written book of non-stop action. The ever-present danger allows the group to bond swiftly and become vital to one another in a short time. It also allows attractions to develop quickly. While everyone behaves for the most part, the tension is there; there are several heated moments. This will lead to a few problems and plenty of fun in the future. I can't wait. The book ended with a horrible turn of events and a new dangerous twist. I am going to need book 2 sooner rather than later please!
I liked that the POV changed sporadically (thank goodness not with every chapter, so you could still follow the story) and I liked how different each of the guys were. If I could find a Booker or Titus, that would make my life haha. I hope to see the guys bond more, they need each other as much as they need Nerys. Also looking forward to more moments between Nerys and her guys. Some of the events are so adorable or hilarious, it was a good mix of everything.
I have really no complaints about the book. The very end was sorta predictable, but it will make for a great sequel. I was hoping Nerys would be able to handle some "tense and steamy" situations better, but she has to grow throughout this journey...no MC should be perfect right off the bat (that makes for a boring storyline). I like the backstory with "the inky guy" and how we got to see the flashbacks. My only critique was it was sometimes hard to figure out the timeline. Some of the transitions were non-existent, so all of sudden you would be back to the present without a break, symbol, font change, etc. and it felt like some words or a sentence was missing. Nonetheless, I definitely put Daimon on my top 10 favorite books I have read this year, hoping Book 2 isn't too far behind.
I loved it and continued the series, if that wasn’t obvious by my earlier comments! Nerys is an FMC like no other and I loooove her.

I haven't read a book that had spirit guides, and found it an absolutely fascinating concept.
The characters were engaging and I got sucked into the world that the author had created.
I especially love the slow burn of the romance, and right now, whilst Nerys feels something towards them, at this stage, it's mostly friendship, rather than love. It's so refreshing to find an RH series that doesn't delve straight into the romance and establishes them in a romantic way.
The world building was great as well, and I got the feel of the world in which they live in.
Nerys strength is amazing, and she has a little bit of sass and feistiness to her, but still holding a vulnerability and naivety about her. She has flaws, and I love that in characters.
The absolutely adore the guys, especially Booker, and can't wait to see their relationship grow more.
And the ending! Woah! I absolutely can't wait to get straight into the second book in the series and see where things go with their journey.
