So first we have Taron who is a scholar... over 1,000 years old and a virgin (by choice he is celibate). Taron has been fighting the demon war by staying in Lemuria and debating the council and such but now that is no longer needed he has agree to help train the Paladins (the freed slaves). Taron is like all Lemurian men tall, lean, long hair, muscular and gorgeous. He has Blood red hair past his butt and bright green eyes, he has a soft heart and is more of a thinker.
Okay so now we have Willow. I just LOVE willow's character! Willow started as swamp gas (Only Kate I swear!) then became Dax's help to fight the demon king and was a 2 inch sprite or wisp o'the will hence the name Willow. Then poor willow gets eaten by the demon king, but slipped her consciousnesses into the dog "Bumper" before she was totally lost.:::Deep breath:::. So she had been for all intents and purposes living in the dog. Now with a little magic ... Willow is a W O M A N and sexy one. She is not afraid to go after what she wants and that is Taron.
Willow pushes Taron to accept his inner beast whilst trying to save the world...
Paranormal romance fans if you have not picked up this series you are missing out! This series has it all romance, adventure, colorful characters, witty banter, strong women and sexy warriors. I read an interview somewhere where Kate said she got the idea for this series from a Crystal/Gem shop on Mount Shasta and there you have Kate in a nutshell. Kate Walks into a store looking at crystals and gems and walks out thinking about how crystal can kill demons and eventually we get Lemurians living in Mount Shasta fighting said demons. Remarkable!
I really loved this series and I am sad to see it wrap up but it was a fun and sexy expedition! Pick-up the first three if you have not read them yet in a eBook bundle!!!
Of Coarse it's 5 Stars!It's Kate!!!

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
I will admit, I haven’t read the other books in this series. Would it have helped to understand the history of what was happening and who all the players were? Definitely. The world of the DemonSlayers is very complex with many players, so I did spend a fair amount of time just trying to figure out what was happening. That said, I was able to get a feel for what this storyline was about and move forward.
Taron was an interesting man. Scared by a fortune giving to him when he was a teen, he’s shied away from any type of romantic entanglement. His thirst for knowledge is his only one and he knew it was one that would never hurt him as the fortune teller told him. But that was before he found Willow in a human body. Once he’s with Willow, we spend a lot of time inside Taron’s head. A lot. While I could understand Taron’s inner monologue, having never experiences what he was going through with anyone before, it got to be a bit much. Taron hadn’t spent much time fighting demons, but he seemed to get through those encounters just fine. He’s interaction with Willow seemed to set him over the edge and into arguments with himself in his head.
Willow, on the other hand, had not problems embracing not only the fact that she now had a human body, but that she was in love with Taron and that she was an integral part of the solution to rid the world of the Demon King. Now she may have taken all of this a bit to eagerly, it was refreshing to break away from Taron’s over analyzing.
Together, Taron and Willow had great chemistry. They were able to work together when fighting demons and set the bedroom on fire when they were done. For two people who were rather inexperienced, they got past all of that fairly quickly.
The secondary story lines involving the other DemonSlayers really brought the story together for me. While I may not know how they got to the place they are together, you can tell the Slayers all work as a unit and love each other as family. They have an all for one, one for all attitude that had you immediately hoping they would succeed on their mission. While the story lines do end up coming together at the end, it was those secondary characters that kept me moving through the story.

Crystalfire is the first novel by Kate Douglas that I have read and despite it being a part of a series I found it extremely easy to keep up with the storyline. Crystalfire had everything a reader could want - a sense of humor, suspense, and most importantly, a cast of characters who cared about one another deeply, forming a family of sorts. The parts where Bumper was speaking to Willow and vice versa were down right hysterical. One of the reasons I had no problem keeping up with the storyline is that the author included plot points from the previous books. My favorite part of Crystalfire was how the relationship between Willow and Taron progressed. I was pleased with how the book ended and I have every intention of reading the other books in this series. I have no doubt they will be as enjoyable to read as Crystalfire was.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
