Despite sharing the same body, Liora hated the demon inside her. Actually she hated all the demons because of what they did to her half incubus friend, Bones. She really hated Lucky and didn't want her in her life.
Lucky, the demi-demon by night had no choice but to wait and be awaken from dusk til dawn so she could do whatever she needed to do: hunt and slay demons, torment humans and bring justice to those who deserve it. Although she wanted to do all these in her own little time, she didn't have a choice but wait until Liora slept. This was caused by a spell cast by monsters that split her soul in two.
Now they both met Kieron and all hell broke loose. Literally. Both girls got interested in him, and vice versa. But how would Liora react once she learned that Kieron was the kind of guy she wanted to stay away from?
This was a great Halloween read, I enjoyed every minute of it! The plot was amazingly unique - imagine sharing the same body with a demon. Ugh! Actually, I pity the body that inhabits this two girls, because she gets used 24/7. No rest, no sleep, no time to hibernate! Plus the guys were to-die for. I think both Bones and Kieron were cute and loveable and sooo gorgeous! I don't care whether the other one had dark secrets or the other one was troublesome - they're both sexy as hell and I liked it!
Penelope King is a great author, I have no more words to say. I don't know how she had managed to create a mystifying fantasy that made a 30+ year old (me) swoon and giggle like a teenager. Yep, this is geared for the Young Adults, so what does a mom like me doing, reading Demonblood? Well, my answer is simple: I know how to appreciate a good read and Ms King's book is definitely worth-reading.
I wish that the World Building had been more developed, because the idea of all the various Demon species was intriguing. Because the human part of the Heroine was a little wimpy, and the Demon part was a little too over-confident, it was harder to accept the Heroine as an appealing character.
I did like it enough to read it through to the end, so it was a decent read for me. I'm not sure if I'm invested enough to continue the series.
I kind of figured that at the end the 2 would again become 1 person, but didn't see how that was going to happen.
Also, I would have liked to see a better solution for Kieron, since he was a likable character.
My Rating: 3.5 stars
With all of that negativity out of the way, the world, the concept, and the overall story was a good one. The theme was great. The writing was clean and clear, and I saw no typos (so if they were there, they were very minor!). Maybe I picked up the wrong genre for my personal tastes. Maybe I just wanted the female character(s) to be stronger? I am not sure, but sadly I won't be reading any more of this series.
