Now, as I've said in every vampire book I've ever read. I love vampires. It's pretty hard for a book to go wrong with vampires in it. But, this book was all kinds of right. Clem, the main character was strong, witty, a tomboy and yet used sex as a weapon. The author did a fabulous job balancing that set of characteristics.
The vampires in the book were perfect. Everything you want in a vampire. Strong, sexy, commanding, dominating. 😍
The storyline was well thought out. It was believable in that it took place in our world with all our modern technologies, but just with demons, vampires and others. Her blending of our life and theirs was very enjoyable.
This is one of the best new finds I've read recently. I want to share it with everyone. Looking forward to the next book with great anticipation.
Clem is an amazing and entertaining character and the book is narrated from her point of view. The events and dialogues are interwoven with her thoughts which are hilarious most of the time. The story is quite serious, but Clem deals with the grim reality in her own way, with inappropriate and rude humour and we get to experience the wonder of being inside Clem's mind. I had moments of uncontrollable laughter, she is so wonderful. The author truly managed to translate that wonderfulness into words.
I think what I liked the most is Clem's self image and self confidence. There is not enough description to figure out how exactly she looks like apart from being of average height and having loud red hair, which the covers did not manage to portray for some reason. There are some attempts at body shaming, which she cuts down from the start. We do know she loves cake. And she loves to eat in general. However, she is fast and strong and skilled, and trains almost regularly. So, Clem could basically look like any girl. And that is absolutely fantastic. The best part, however, is that she feels awesome and she is comfortable with herself. Clem does not use her appearance to judge herself, but her skill and actions. Her physical appearance does not define her.
There are two main male characters, vampires Nic and Kisho. There is no triangle there, but a lot of chemistry and some kind of weird friendship, or kinship in some way. Nic is a motivational speaker, very charismatic celebrity and Kisho is part of his pack. The funny conversations among the three of them had me laughing constantly. There are some interesting side characters, and of course there are the Vampire King and The Mayor.
I got sucked into the story like vacuum. I could not stop reading it. The author managed to invent a new approach to vampires and society on the verge of knowing about them. And the author managed to give a fresh approach to relationships among three people that does not involve usual competition, love triangle, threesome, or jealousy, which was quite refreshing. I am not saying that there were no emotions involved, quite the contrary as the chemistry was off the charts, but it was new and different. As a result, I started reading the next book immediately.
Reading order is: Sex Demon (Clem Starr: Demon Fighter #0.5), which is the same as Incubus (Clem Starr: Demon Fighter #0.6), Demon Child (Clem Starr: Demon Fighter #1), Moonlight Virgin (Clem Starr: Demon Fighter #2), and Vampire Prince (Clem Starr: Demon Fighter #3).
I believe that Laurell K. Hamilton has a twin and her name is Kat Cotton. Demon Child was a fantastic start in this series. Clementine takes charge and takes no prisoners! I loved the dynamics between Clem, Kisho and Nic. The snarkiness between Clem and Nic has me laughing out loud; while the relationship is so charged with sexual tension. One thing that I liked about this series versus Anita Blake Series is although there were sexual tensions like for instance when Nic was disciplining Kisho it was tastefully done. I highly recommend this book.
