Overview

After accidentally stealing the life force of a dying demon, Allay became the only human-demon hybrid in existence. Demons feed on human emotions, so Allay decided the safest way to satisfy this need-and still retain some semblance of her humanity-was to open a bar. Here she can drink from, and ease, her patrons' pain, which has helped her to stay under the demon radar...until now.

When Allay is attacked and nearly killed by another demon, a human comes to her rescue. Theo Ram is tall, handsome, and mortal-and Allay feels a connection to him she didn't think she'd ever know. But that bond is tested when the demon community in New York begins to rise up, and two opposing clans fight for power. Now Allay is caught in the middle, and she must decide where her loyalties lie.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Human-demon hybrid Allay lives a comfortable life. Her job as a bartender suits her demon side well—like most demons, she is an emotional vampire who feeds on humans' feelings, both good and bad. When her demon friend, Shock, is attacked and left for dead, Allay's investigation leads her to a massive demon conspiracy and puts her in the path of Theo Ram, a tough-guy bodyguard with a closely guarded secret. Wright, who has written several Star Trek novels, writes with plenty of finesse, introducing a world very much like our own, with the addition of centuries-old demons who crave our strongest emotions. VERDICT The combination of social commentary on the power of religion in contemporary society, a sensual romantic subplot, and a protagonist whose dual nature causes a moral dilemma that could kill her start this promising new series on a high note.

    This is a very enthralling, evocative and electrifying urban fantasy

    She does not eat or sleep, but tends a bar Den on C in Manhattan in order to dine off the emotions of human patrons who drink there. Allay is a one of a kind type of demon; as she is a human who ingested the life force of a demon. Her scent signature differs from demons who would all love to feed off her, but cannot because Vex, the ancient demon protects her as she is of his line.-----------

    Pique the demon enters Den on C and attacks Alley. He almost kills her, but as she is getting unconscious, human Theo Ram arrives at the bar and breaks up the fight. Allay and Theo feel an immediate attraction and he declares himself her bodyguard. Allay knows she must feel off a demon if she is to live another two hundred years, but rejects the concept because that would end her last vestiges of humanity. Allay learns that he plans to use her at his church the Fellowship of Truth to show the world she was once human so he can announce to the world that demons exist. She learns his end game is for demons to rule the world. Allay believes his domination plan is horrific and wants no part of subjecting humans. Theo watches out for her in the demon challenges and when it looks like a demon civil war will break out. However, she is still dying and needs a miracle to save her because she won't subsume a demon-----------

    This is a very enthralling, evocative and electrifying urban fantasy whose underlying premise is demons are just another sentient species and not angry at God or ordered by Lucifer. Like humans, demons have the good, the bad and the ugly unmentionables. S. L. Wright adds to the realism by the fascinating way they reproduce. Ally refuses to lose her humanity, but to keep it she will die soon, which she is okay with as that should save humans for now. Filled with awe and twists, CONFESSIONS OF A DEMON is a refreshing powerful Manhattan thriller.-----------

    I can't wait for her next book!

    At first Ally is whiny, but I liked her. She is growing in character, I didn't agree with part of her mental reasoning, but as you read the book you see her evolving into someone that is admirable. I recommend reading this book.

    Yawn....

    I may be in the minority here but this book was a total disappointment. I found the whole concept on how the demon's reproduce unique and intriguing, but aside from that, the story was all fluff. I was expecting a dark and exciting romantic urban fantasy with a kick-butt heroine but instead the main character was whiney, indecisive, petty and didn't seem to understand the concept of self-preservation. This book actually reminds me of Ann Aguirre's Corine Solomon series, all talk and no action. I really wanted to like this book but it never really seem to get anywhere and was a complete waste of my time.
