Nikki Donovan was a demon princess. Now she's a demon princess in love... 'Demons, magic and sexy guys! This is a series I definitely want to keep reading.' - Richelle Mead (author of Vampire Academy)
Fresh from finding out she is a demon princess and meeting her father for the first time, Nikki Donovan is looking forward to getting back to her regular high school life. But then Rhys, the handsome teenage king of the faery realm, enrolls at her school as a "foreign exchange student". Her conflicted feelings for Rhys and her boyfriend are getting in the way of her new relationship with the Shadow-creature Michael. But this love triangle from hell isn't even Nikki's biggest problem:
There's a new prophecy that claims she will destroy all the demon and human worlds. Her best friend Melinda just might be a demon-slayer-in-training. Throw in a field trip to none other than the Underworld itself... and Nikki's going to be hoping for a rain check on more than just her homework!
About Michelle Rowen
Michelle Rowen is the bestselling author of the Immortality Bites series, including Bitten and Smitten and Fanged and Fabulous. She lives in Ontario.
For those who missed the first book, the central character is Nikki Donovan, a reluctatly demonic royal. This second book pretty much stands on its own, but if you’ve read book one, then you’d appreciate this sequel a little more than the uninitiated.
The story is aimed at younger readers, but there is enough subltelty for older readers to appreciate this novel as well. In this instalment, the action continues with Nikki going about her life as normal as a half demon princess can, at her local high school. She is unaware of the king of the faery world lurking about spying on her and keeping tabs on how her supernatural powers and her part in the prophecy are playing out.
This book will keep you entertained and moves along at a fast pace that will keep you constantly thinking about how everything fits into the plot.
