About the Author

Cerys is a USA Today bestselling author. She has charted on numerous hot new release lists and best sellers lists internationally and with multiple books. She lives in the Greater Boston area in a small town in New Hampshire. She spends her days writing, read-ing, learning, and working. And maybe sometimes she flirts with the mailman. Some of her most favorite activities involve understanding and learning about emotions and relationships. She adores pondering sexuality and sensualness. Most of her writing delves into this in some way, exploring reactions and relationships between different people. While she enjoys writing erotica and erotic romance, her goal is to also keep a certain literary appeal to the writing instead of something purely pornograph-ic. Every story she writes has a delightful plot along with the more devious and delicious scenes we all want to read. She prefers romance settings, with the occasional monster or fairytale. Her secret kinks include reluctance, interesting paranormal creatures, romance(even with monsters), and fun. She loves writing about all of these things, though very strongly acknowledges that fantasies are fiction and nothing more.

Cerys kills it in this novel. As soon as I loaded it up in my kindle and started reading I found myself in a world just surreal enough to grip me and not let go. I haven't lost myself in a novel, turning page after page without hesitation, in quite a while.

Solace is a resident of the small town of Glenwood, but she's absolutely reviled by everyone there. After being chosen to become the Demon King's wife, she gladly accepts, if only to stem the tide of anger and hate that flows from everyone's lips. As someone who has suffered years of doubt and self-inflicted blame for things that were generally out of my control, I connected with Solace from the very first paragraph. Following her journey wasn't easy, but very rewarding.

Bastion, the Demon King, isn't as vile as his reputation says. The Demon King has a soft heart, and is touched by Solace's years and years of strife. The romance that blossoms between the two is exciting to follow and fun to behold.

Cerys' writing style comes off effortless and engaging. I'll keep my eye out for more from her in the future!

I loved everything about this book. This could have been yet another story about a human and fantasy creature falling in love, but Cerys du Lys elevated it to something unique and riveting.
I rooted for Solace from the moment I met her. Who hasn't felt ostracized at some point and longed for escape? Solace finds a surprising love in the Demon King, Bastion. He connects with Solace, moved by her years of being vilified by her people. I can't say much more without whipping out a spoiler alert, but if you're looking for a fantasy romance with a relatable heroine, a complex, moving hero, and incredible world-building, check out The Monster Within. You won't regret it!

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. When I got this book I was not sure what to expect I knew that this author put out amazing books but this was above and beyond anything I had expected. I am not big on giving books 5 stars but this book deserves it and more. Wen I started reading it on my kindle I thought oh I can read this book and put it down for a while and finish it the next day because it is longer than some of the books I have read recently. This book is first centered around a woman named Solace and what she has had to go through in her life. About 4 chapters in she is chosen to be the Demon Bride's sacrifice. Secretly it is where the towns people send a woman to die. Who we meet then is Bastion the demon king but he doesn't seem evil. The story centers from this point on on these two main characters as well as Bastion's twin sister Faith. She is so funny sometimes I found her to be the perfect comic relief at times. I don't want to say to much except for what you think you know on some of these characters is not as first appears. It is an amazing story that will hold you to the very end. This story does come to a full conclusion but does leave it open if the author wishes to write more in this series. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Wow! I was stunned with how fast I got pulled into the exciting world that the author created. This book was a perfect blend of fantasy and romance that kept me reading page after page. This was a very 'adult' kind of fairytale, with metaphors and themes woven throughout, but it was also a lovely romance filled with some very hot scenes. Thanks to the author for such an enjoyable read.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. I was not sure what to expect from this one. But I was very excited about the story when I finished. We start with learning about Solace and what her life is like in the small town of Glenwood. Where she is hated by most every one in town. She is told that she can't do anything right, sew, cook, clean etc. She believes that the towns folks must be right or they would treat her differently. She has very very low self-esteem and at times I wanted to reading into my kindle and shake her to stop thinking so negatively about herself. When she is chosen to be the bride of the demon king, her life will change but not for good for long. Things are about to happen to Solace, Bastion, Faith, and others in the demon land. There are demons, elves, wisps, fairies, and tree creatures. This story will take your imagination on a ride and if you like that kind of story, then you should hold on and enjoy the ride of The Monster Within. I love Cerys du Lys's writing style and really enjoyed thins one. Looking forward to reading more from her.

I really enjoyed the adventure in this story. I loved the fantastical tone as well as the suspense Cerys kept me in before mysteries revealed in the beginning of the book were finally explained in the end. It was, overall, a gripping adventure with some smoking HOT love scenes mixed in! I will absolutely read more books in this series!!!

Do you like fairy tales of demons and goblins,fairies and elves, and most of all True Love, then you will love this story by Cerys du Lys. It is a wonderfully wrought fairy tale that tells the tale that should be told again and again, that differences don't matter, what matters in the end and all the time is love. This story tells of true love and how it can change people, even demon kings. Solace a beautiful young girl who is hated by the villagers though she doesn't know why, yet when the time comes for the sacrifice to be given as tribute she is the chosen, by being true to herself and seeing through the outside appearances that we all hold so dear she is able to see the true heart of people even giant spiders and demon kings, and to see past that which divides to that which is the same, an important lesson to be learnt in any time. And through this to bring happiness if not to an entire kingdom at least to one family. Well the saying goes one family at a time, hopefully there will be more in this series as the supporting cast were drawn very descriptively and I would love to find out does Faith find love, does X (can't pronounce his name, let alone spell it) find love, what are the frost wild kin up to and as for the elves is everything told about them true, and of course to continue to watch Solace and Bastion as they continue to grow in their relationship.
