S.A.Bayne, or better known as Stephanie Rowe, has been one busy lady. And here, in a book that took her over 10 years to write because so many other things came first, she has finally released the tale that rattled around in her head for so long. And what a tale it is turning out to be!
Meet Ellie and Jack, two of the most unlikely heroes you could ever imagine. One a girl with no magic on a quest to find her missing sister, Esme, the other a half man half demon who lost his wife but has a daughter he needs desperately to keep safe while he battles that demon side of himself. Together the maybe add up to half a hero. Yet together they are the best they're going to get.
A, well, for lack of a better word, "being" named Tomas, comes along and offers them the chance to be superheroes and save the world from a twisted conman with evil magic, determined to destroy anyone and anything that had a hand in killing his family. Against their combined better judgment, they accept. To help Ellie along, Tomas lets her find her own magical weapon, which he says will be the only one in the armory to accept her. This wonderful weapon that Ellie is so sure will turn the tide of her "no magic" makeup, turns out to be...sandpaper. Sandpaper? LOL really?
That type of humor is prevalent throughout the whole book. Stephanie has this hysterical ability to turn desperate times into laughable moments. As she progresses through her various comedic novels, she's getting more and more of the hang of cracking me up while still keeping me interested in the seriousness of the storyline. This is a talent that is hard to come by. Even someone as talented as Stephanie obviously is (she has more than 30 books out there folks!), has had to struggle a little bit to get the comedy just right. But, here, in The Demon You Trust she got it exactly right! I found myself giggling throughout the book!
But, is it all comedy? Nope! In a couple extra bonus scenes included in the purchased book, she takes it to a more serious level. In the first one we see how damaged Ellie really is over having her parents attempt to kill her, then her sister, at a tender age. Damaged enough that when Jack offers it, she can't bring herself to accept a real relationship. The best she can do is accept a partnership. She also shows how much Jack needs a stabilizing force in his life that he's finding in Ellie, who is the only one who can keep him from turning full demon.
In the second one we get our first glimpse of someone else who is going to be very important in the future. It's a teaser for sure. Which I hate/love! Now I have to sit on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one!
This first book in the new Magical Elite series is a phenomenal start! So much fun, so much drama! And the teaser bonuses? What a great little add-in that she's going to be including in everything going forward! Extra work for her, yeah, but extra storyline for us! Ok, so she has to work harder. Yeah, I feel for her, but still, YAY! LOL!!
I love what you've done here, S.A. Bayne (our beloved Stephanie Rowe!)! So Very Very Well Done! Can't wait for the next one!
I received this book through the ARC team, and am giving this review in my own words and of my own volition. Everything here is in my humble opinion!
Here we find her playing with half demons and pissed off demigod Parents who are trying to kill their daughter and all she wants to do is find her missing sister .You see I love this book for many reasons it made me smile it had that I have to finish it vibe to it . I sat down and it was in my hand and I didn't want to let go .oh sorry back to the book .
So what is a girl supposed to do but well almost die then almost die again hahaha but with the help of her new friends Thomas who is the boss,the half demon Jack, and the SPOILER ALERT @#$%^&^*% HAHAHAHAHAHA (made you look ) they make up a team and they save the day . Enough to try again with the next book ...So if you want a great read please grab this book up You wont regret it .
If Ellie Locke dies, so does her sister, so when Ellie is murdered by a water god, it's a no-brainer to cheat death by accepting a deal from a stranger with the power to freeze time…until she discovers he has just set her up as a target for sociopathic serial killer with excellent magical skills.
Her only chance to survive her new job as an agent in a magical crime-fighting organization is her partner, a deliciously sexy half-demon who needs to stay alive as badly as she does. Neither of them has the magical ability to defeat a sociopath who has already killed seventy-six of their predecessors, but who needs skills when you have incentive?
Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon dad from the beyond, and highly paid assassins sent by her loving parents make things a little complicated for Ellie and her new partner, but what's a pair of breasts and an intimate moment for, if not to save themselves and the world?
And this is just the start.
