"As if trying to fit in at a new school isn't stressful enough, sixteen-year-old Nikki Donovan just found out that her long-lost father is, in fact, the demon king of the Shadowlands—the world that separates and protects us from the Underworld. When she is brought there by the mysterious—and surprisingly cute—messenger Michael, she learns that her father is dying, and he wants her to assume the throne. To complicate matters, a war is brewing between the Shadowlands and the Underworld, her half-demon qualities are manifesting, and her growing feelings for Michael are completely forbidden. Ruling a kingdom, navigating a secret crush, and still making it home by curfew—what's a teenage demon princess to do?"
My Thoughts: Okay so after I finished my own demon YA MS I started reading some demon novels. This one was snarky, and the voice came right through. The world building was great, and I read it in about a day. Even though the character Rhys is just a little blip, I found myself drawn to him the most, and I will admit I cheated and read the info on book two to see if he is in it. Guess what? Looks like he's a major part!! :D Fun read, with lots of romance sprinkled in. My favorite kind of book! :D
