Kenneth checked off a few boxes on his clipboard.
"Ms. Jonson, your dismount was less than stellar, and while your staking was efficient, you forgot to issue the requisite one-liner."
"I didn't forget." Natalie's lips set in a straight line. "I didn't think it was appropriate. A man died."
Kenneth's face remained unchanged. "His fate doesn't change whether you issue the witty remark or not. And you were breaking protocol." He sighed and tucked the clipboard under his arm. "As your probation officer, I am forced to remind you that the quicker you prove to me that you are ready, the faster I can approve you for field duty. Then we can both go back to our lives."
In the dream world I was a little shakey. I'm sure that wasn't Jill's writing but my getting acquainted with which Natalie was talking. That threw me off a little and watching the characters do things they didn't do in the other world. But it really doesn't detract from the story. It doesn't take long to figure out what's going on.There was a lot that is thrown at you and it's great. Definitely maintains the stamina all the way through.
"The bastard got the best of me, but I did what girls do best when in a fight."
"Tore out a chunk of his hair."
and another of my favorite lines...
"I've seen quite a few `its' in my time. It is a very overused pronoun."
The characters, as I said above, are a ton of fun. Natalie is the most interesting for me and as much as she is like Buffy, she is definitely her own person. I'm very curious what is next for Natalie and can not wait to read Awakening Dreams. I'm sure it'll be just as good as The Demon Royale!
Where I felt like the first book in this series leaned on the ideas of the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and seemed to play off of different aspects from the show, Demon Royale really stood on its own to me. I have fallen in love not only Natalie the slayer but like the characters in the book I also see something amazing in Natalie the paladin. Like many teenage girls she is struggling to figure out who she is and what her voice in the world is, adding to the pot trying to save the world not only from the creations of her own mind but also of the evils in her world both human and supernatural. Also like most teenage girls her relationship with Tristan evolves in this book. On a personal level I feel that Tristan is too needy and vulnerable for Natalie but that's just because I'm holding out for her to end up with Damien. Demon Royale was a more intense and gory read than Dream Slayer. More is revealed about the characters in this book. Leaving me wondering what is Natalie? I enjoyed Dream Slayer a lot but I have to say Demon Royale was a fantastic sequel, definitely my favorite book in the series so far.
I found this novel to be a really unique and interesting story. The concept and back story were truly refreshing and original to the YA paranormal genre. There were several plot lines happening at once, but they seemed to work in tandem with each other to enhance the series instead of making things confusing. The characters were all really believable and easy to like, especially Natalie. She shows her flaws and weaknesses along with her strengths, which makes her a really well-rounded character. I felt myself rooting for her from the very beginning of the book. The romance in the book was sweet and juicy, but it didn't overshadow the main plot, which I thought was great. I really loved the history and backstory that the author described. It added a new depth to the book that I truly enjoyed. The writing was well done and flowed effortlessly throughout the novel. The plot was fast-paced and packed full of action, mystery, and adventure - which made it a fast and fun read. Overall, this is a wonderful second book in a thrilling YA paranormal series and I'll definitely be waiting for the next installment to come out.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
