Demon King's Desire by J.L. Sheppard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
**I received this book in exchange for an honest review via GoodReads**
I liked all the details, that helps me to a better picture in my head of the story. Though there are couple where it was almost like the same details applied to all the demons (or any male character), it would have been nice if they varied a bit more.
Some of the dialog/reactions came off as choppy, which made it harder for me to wrap their moods/actions and conversations into a smooth flow.
I really liked how the Demons were the on the side of good, though still reviled because others couldn't see past their one aspect. It was nice to see their relationships, as brothers, come out in the story. I am hoping the next book in the series gives us more of the other immortals as well :)
I wish there was a bit more development, earlier on, on how the whole Guardian/Council worked, the Demons place in it and also maybe more on Lucas's brother/warriors. More lead into the whole story. This could have provided more development opportunities with Lucas as well. For a Demon King, he actually could have been a bit cooler (granted he's a Demon) in his abilities to control his emotions, attitudes and reactions. He felt very young to me, not quite mature yet. Clyde, for an Angel, he just fell pretty easily in love with his charge and I sorta wanted to smack him whenever he spoke. Which means (at least to me) that his character was well written enough gather a response.
To be honest, this is a pretty strong start to a series. I am looking forward to reading the next one :)
