This novel reads like the story of a developing writer-- most likely developing in the right direction, but not quite there yet.
Besides a bit of formatting issues that sometimes made dialogue attribution to figure out (I had to reread several passages a couple times and "guess" who was saying what) this has insta-love (or at least initial fear followed by insta-love) and that's a hard sell for me.
The story opens with Kira, a young college girl, leaving her adoptive family to go to college. I assumed this was the real world, but Kira's farewell from her adopted sister definitely was weird, and abnormal, and Kira took it all in stride, so then I thought it was a world where paranormal was already integrated into society.
Kira meets Lowell, a handsome co-ed, and finds out he's Ulric the demon....who she happens to love because her mom gave her a magic book that shows her demons...so not sure again what kind of world we're in since the regular characters don't know about demons? Lowell whizzes Kira around on his back (a la Twilight), kissed her forehead, strokes her hair, cuddles her close, and actually develops a relationship with Kira....until a new person enters the story.
And then there' insta-love and contrasted with the already developed relationship, fell flat. This new person also kisses her forehead, strokes her hair, and cuddles her close...so feeling like I wished for more differentiation between the two.
And this book definitely has a younger YA vibe going on....despite their collegial status, and the demons being really really old, they're mostly content with kissing and hair-stroking. Even when Kira asks her loved one to share an apartment with her-- it's with the caveat that they have different rooms and he always knock before coming into her room.
There's some issues with Kira having terrible dreams that come true, and someone hunting her in revenge for stuff Lowell and the loved one did, but the person hunting them is fairly obvious from the start (consistently over reacts to Lowell, gets angry, throws rocks, etc).
There's some cute boy-banter and tussling within Lowell's posse of humans-who-know-about-demons-and-demon-buddies, but the tussling goes on the same way throughout the entire book, so for me, it begins to make them look like 13 year old boys after a while.
Anyway, the glimmerings of a good story and an intriguing, imaginative view of demons are here, but I'm hoping the stories (this is a series) gets a little tighter as it goes on.
The romance is clean, and sweet. My 13 year old really wants to read this, and based on the reviews I've seen for the others, I feel fairly comfortable letting him start the series, though to be sure I will be reading each book before him. Which, I don't actually mind, so YAY!
I would've liked to see more development of some of the side characters, but I absolutely adore Kira, Lowell, and Pyre, so there's room for the other characters to develop more. I think my favorite part about this book is that I found a female romance character who I can actually relate to and that was so nice! Kira is like a mini version of me and I loved that so much. She's a good, kind person who isn't really into makeup and girly things. She isn't judgy and she knows her own mind. No one is going to force her into something she doesn't want, or keep her away from something she does want.
Also, I enjoyed the author's approach to demons. At least, so far, there isn't this whole religious bent that I keep seeing in other YA books about demons. It's more like the Lost Girl Series, in that there are dark fey and light fey, but that isn't linked so much to morality as to survival. There are demons who are more discreet and less of a threat to humans because they are simply trying to protect their existence in our world, not because of a moral imperative. Then there are others who are more reckless and follow their natural instincts, without concern for the exposure. I will say that this was a bit simpler a read than I was expecting, but I chalk that up to a first-time author as it looks like the other books are thicker. Kind of like Harry Potter!
The story builds up gradually and so do most of the relationships. I loved all the characters as most of them were helpful except of course Crystal and Melissa. I love Pyre and Lowell allowing as both of them loved Kira. One as befriend/ brother and the other as boyfriend.
I loved how everything takes place and is built up on sequence by the author.
Great book to read. I am onto the next in the series.
