Overview

First in a terrific new series featuring wealthy paranormal party girls?from the author of the Charmed books.

The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.

Gillian, the eldest, is a sensation in the art world? this world, that is. In her other world she's the Assassin, a knockout who snuffs out dimension-jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth in darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.

    The Demon King and I by Candace Havens

    Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release Nov08<BR/><BR/>I¿m not a big fan of chick lit. Name dropping and descriptions of designer clothing just don¿t do it for me. Having said that, there¿s just something about Candace Havens writing that keeps me coming back for more. Her `Charmed¿ series earned a spot on my keeper shelf for her snappy wit and different take on a witch who uses her powers for good and keeps a running tally of her potions, spells, and boyfriends. ¿The Demon King and I¿ is her first book in a new series about a family of female Guardians who keep Earth safe from creatures from other worlds. And I must say, if the other books in the series are as good as this one, my keeper shelf will expand once again!<BR/><BR/>Gillian is the oldest of four Guardian sisters. She¿s the Assassin, born with the extra strength and ability to kill demons. She¿s also a high-profile art gallery owner and lawyer. Does the good of the first cancel out the lawyer part ¿? She¿s been very busy lately. What with finding her latest boyfriend boffing her gallery manager in her home, attending posh parties, investigating a string of murders whose only connection is herself, giving media interviews, and killing dimension-jumping demons, she hardly has time to eat a gourmet meal! Now she¿s been summoned to meet the new demon king and she¿s not exactly thrilled. The last several have been VERY hard to look at, assuming she knew which eye to look at, and most wanted to kill her right off. But this latest one is a bit different--he looks like Adonis with the body of Michelangelo¿s David and he makes all her girlie bits sing. This could be trouble. The Demon King and the Demon Assassin¿hmmm, doesn¿t really give you a warm fuzzy, does it?<BR/><BR/>I liked this story almost in spite of myself. And now I just want to read about the next sister and her dragonman! Havens manages to be silly without resorting to stupidity¿a very fine line indeed. There may be readers who don¿t like her brand of humor, but it hits me just right. If I could make my own category for this one, it would be humorous chick paranormal. The name dropping is kept to a minimum and the `chick¿ part is balanced out by the plot and the action. The heat between the main characters isn¿t too bad either! And a few of the cast of secondary characters are intriguing too. <BR/><BR/>¿The Demon King and I¿ grabbed me from the title and kept me with it¿s droll humor and sexy banter. I enjoyed the solution of Gillian¿s mystery, yet the author will reel me into buying the next book for the next piece of the overall puzzle. ¿Dragons Prefer Blondes¿ is scheduled for publication in July 2009 and yes, I¿ll be waiting for it to hit the shelves!

    Readers will be whistling a happy tune with this superb paranormal romance

    The four Caruthers sisters knew from birth that they were special Guardian Keys protecting humanity from select paranormal killers. Each of the siblings is a specialist with a unique power to fight a specific horde.-------------- Gillian, owner of a Sao Paulo, Brazil art gallery and the CEO of the family owned Texas based Caruthers Corporation, caught her boyfriend in bed with one of her art gallery managers. Her talent being super strength she broke the sink. Her super strength comes in mighty handy when Gillian works her other job, the Assassin of dimension hopping demons. So even she is taken back when Arath, the new king of the demons, asks for a truce so they can team up to battle an unknown third force killing human and demon without regard. Even more shocking to the Guardian is her attraction to her temporary ally-------------- The first of a new romantic urban fantasy is a piece of haven for sub-genre fans. The lead couple is a delightful pairing of beloved enemies fighting against a sly sinister unknown force killing both sides. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that Gillian kicks the butt of her sink and never slows down until the final confrontation in between are several super twists. Readers will be whistling a happy tune with this superb paranormal romance.--------- Harriet Klausner

    Not Too Impressed

    I'm a person who likes a good character development with an interesting plot along with the romance. The book at a good theme and very original plot. It was really action paced which was nice. But I was expecting a romance and felt that it was there but more of a subplot and not the main plot. This book was good but it probably should have been listed as a romance more as a fantasy book. The romance between the two characters wasn't that well developed. It was an alright read but I wasn't too impressed with the character development. All in all a decent book but probably one I would rather get at the library than buy.

    I read this book last year and am glad I did. I then went and bought all her other books

    I bought this book because of the title and the cover. I had not read anything by this author before. I like a change of pace once in a while. The demon King and I is not what I expected. Their was truly a plot behind the pretty woman. It left me wanting to read more by this author. Very well done. Thank you Candace Havens.

    Always entertaining!

    I'm always anxious to read the next Candace Havens novel. Her casual writing style is easy to read and innovative plots always leave you in anticipation of the next adventure.

    Will recommend this book for those who love actions.....

    It's not that I dislike the book, its just that I was dissappointed when I read it. I just thought that this book will be more like "Like a Charm"..that has magic and supernatural phenomenons and it really entertains me..... i just dont like dragons and demon fights which I find very unappealing....

    The Demon King and I(A Hot book)!

    I was just scanning the romance section, when I spotted this book. When I got home, and started to read - the time just got away from me. This book was very intertaining and I had a hard time putting it down! This one will go on my keeper shelf. It has lots of action from parties to fights to some hot romance. I can't wait until the next book comes out in the series. This was a fun read!!

    Candace Havens does it again

    I found Candace after becoming bored with the standard romance genre, you know the ones I'm talking about the victorian/elizabethan/contemporary you name it. She really takes time to develop her characters. I can't wait for the next one! I know this sounds like a love letter, but IF I DON'T LIKE IT AFTER THE FIRST CHAPTER I WON'T READ IT. If there was a way to get back all the money I lost on some of the dogs that have been released I'd go for it, but I have to say that every book that I have read by Candace has pleased me greatly.
