Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Nothing in painter Maggie Donovan's ordinary Southern California life prepares her to find a demon devouring her ex-boyfriend. In the ensuing struggle, the smart-mouthed heroine accidentally gets sprinkled with magic dust from a broken pendant and develops mysterious powers. Levitation may be handy for painting tall store windows, but her new status comes with a lot of baggage, including hunky Fae warrior Culhane and ugly pixie Bezel. They want to train Maggie for an upcoming battle against the evil Faery queen, Mab, who has imprisoned all the males of the Otherworld. Unimpressed, Maggie clings to her "destiny-free zone" until her growing magical abilities and feelings for Culhane push her to take on the queen. Child (A Fiend in Need) throws in enough zest and humor to make up for a rather anticlimactic final showdown. (Jan.)

    wonderful urban fantasy

    Maggie Donovan goes over to her soon to be former fiancé¿s office to return him is ABBA CDs and his classic Star Trek DVDs only to walk in on a nightmare. Something female from a horror flick is dining on poor nice Joe Erickson before turning to chow on Maggie. She grabs the b**ch¿s pendant and uses it against the carnivore, which enables her to survive the demonic assault, but inhales a strange powder that gives her astonishing powers.<BR/>---<BR/>Otherworld Fae warrior Culhane feels his hundreds of years waiting impatiently for the right woman which has finally occurred. He believes Maggie, who has Fae blood in her, is destined to fight and defeat the evil Queen Mab. However, in spite of her libido deserting her with her attraction to Culhane, she rejects the Fae until attacks on her human family begin. She knows she must confront Mab who has everything going for her in a one on one battle except for Maggie¿s grit to keep her loved one safe from the malevolent witch.<BR/>---<BR/>Maggie owns this wonderful urban fantasy although some might argue she adapts to her off kilter new world disorder too easily. She is terrific as the chosen one (at least Culhane¿s chosen one), which she believes only places a bulls-eye on her chest for Queen Mab to send her worms to attack her. Readers will enjoy the opening gamut as the Child universe is established in a way that the heroine feels so BEDEVILED she would empathize with Alice falling through the looking glass.<BR/>---<BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Bedeviled

    Maggie Donavan's day began just like any other day, until she took her ex boyfriend's junk to his office just in time to see him being eaten by a demon. She just couldn't let Joe be devoured by a demon, could she? Maggie took on the demon, and after defeating it got covered in fairy dust. Suddenly her whole world was turned upside down. Maggie doesn't have time to save the Otherworld from Queen Mab, as she keeps telling faery warrior Culhane.

    I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it so much better than A Feind In Need. I loved Maggie's character, she's a reluctant heroine. The secondary characters of Nora and Elaine were great. Culhane was a great hero, I felt he really did love Maggie. I can't wait to read the next chapter.

    Bedeviled by Maureen Child

    What can I say about Maureen Child's latest, "Bedeviled"? Well, it reminded me an awful lot of her 'Fiend' series for one...except with Fae instead of demons. It still entertained and amused me, even though I didn't get any hot sex included (YET), I'm still hopeful that the next book will see our heroine involved with her sexy Fae knight.<BR/><BR/>Maggie already has enough on her plate. She still has a bunch of business windows to get painted for the holiday season and she's watching her niece whose mother is off having her chakra's aligned or something like that. So when she stops by her ex's office to drop off the rest of his 'stuff' she's a bit rattled to see him being eaten (and NOT in a good way) by a female-looking creature with horns and a tail. When the creature comes after Maggie, she fights back and ends up destroying the creatures necklace...and gaining Fae powers???? Holy hand grenades, Batman...Maggie really doesn't have time for this! Not even when the Fae sex god, uh I mean warrior...Fae warrior suddenly appears in her life. Even if he does make her girly parts sing three-part harmony, she just doesn't have time to train, fight, and defeat the evil Fae Queen...nope, no time at all for that. Now if all these other creatures would just leave her alone, she'd be happy...mostly...OK, satisfied?<BR/><BR/>Very funny beginning book for Child's new series. Now if she'll just provide some hot Fae sex...I mean relationship, of course, then I'll give it five stars! Humor, the paranormal, sexy men, ugly trolls, demons, and family issues...what's not to love?

    Because I wrote it!

    I gave BEDEVILED five stars because I wrote it and I think it's pretty good!<BR/><BR/>I don't usually write reviews of my own books because...tacky. But as much as I liked Harriet's review of the book, I just ahd to clear something up!<BR/><BR/>There are NO worms in this story, LOL.. worms. Ew. Also, Mab's not a witch, she's a Faery queen.<BR/><BR/>Other than that, I'd just like to say I hope you enjoy the book!
