"This is one of the rare finds where the story draws you in and refuses to let go." -Allie B

Seventeenth birthdays aren't supposed to suck, but mine does. Literally. Before I know what's happened a guy knocks me to the ground and tries to suck out my soul. With a kiss. That's all it takes with his kind. This next part is embarrassing--I thought this guy was my boyfriend. Screw that, I thought he was human, but those creepy, blood red eyes suggest I was mistaken.

This is it, the end of my sucktacularly short life--killed by a creature that's half vampire, half demon, and smokin' hot. Killed by a kiss. It sounds poetic until it happens to you.
The world fades to black, but just as I accept my fate, someone saves me. At least I think he saved me, because I'm still alive. It isn't until much later that I learn what really happened and exactly what it cost me.

496 Pages, 3rd Edition. Young Adult Paranormal Romance.

Wow! The story line was great, and the concept of the book was something I've never read before. There were so many twists that I couldn't predict anything that happened. I was kept guessing the entire time. Books like this are a rare find, especially when not that many people know about them. So I'm spreading the word! Read this book! You won't regret it! The sequel can't come out soon enough!

I was sucked into this book as soon as I read the first few pages. The amount of detail about the setting and the characters is amazing as well as the length of imagination in this book. There's enough romance in the story to keep you satisfied...even if it is kind of challenging for it to happen...I can't really think of any other word for it other than phenomenal. H.M. Ward deserves a freaking award to rival all awards ever given.

One of the best books I have read in some time. The story-line is great. Often I have to read a chapter or so into a book to really get into it, but not this one. It pulled me in right from page one. I can't wait for the second one to be released later this summer. I LOVED IT!!! I strongly suggest this book to anyone who likes to read. Especially if you like the Twilight and/or H.O.N. (House of Night) series'.

Okay well, that was extremely intense. I was sweating, that's how engrossed in the story I was. This story brings a whole new meaning to soul mate. I thoroughly enjoyed this story about the fight of good & evil-literally. It was jam packed with demons, prophecies, love and loss. Huge cliffhanger at the end! I seriously can't not wait to see what happens next. Exceptional Debut that will leave you gasping for more......

I could not put this down! One minute you are so excited for the romance, and the next you are in shock and can't believe how the story just took a swing at your emotions. Great til the surprising climax at the end. Can't wait for the next book!
Starfallen More than 1 year ago
What else can i say besides this book is completely AMAZING!!! I have never been so shocked by a book before. Usually, i read the end of a book first, but in this book, i had no desire to. I wanted to be suprised, and suprised i was. I fell in love with this book from page 1. I was never really sure who to trust in this book besides Ivy, but i soon found out that Collin loved Ivy, so i immediantly fell in love with his character. It was hard not to. People talk about how shocking the end was and how dreadful the cliffhanger was, but it wasn't bad at all. I was actually SUPER happy with it! I usually HATE cliffhangers, but i LOVED this one, because it showed promise that would follow in the next book. The "bond" between Ivy and Collin was heart-pounding, and i loved it, even though i never really found out what caused it. Was it because they were in love, or because of the prophecy? It was VERY sad where Collin ended up at the end, but i was EXTREMELY pleased that Ivy was going to save him, because Collin would do the very same thing for her. The chemistry between those 2 characters was bittersweet, but i would have HATED if Ivy fell for anyone else. They were so perfect for each other, and didn't let anything get in the way of them. That is a definition of true soul mates. I can't give this author enough praise, because this knocked my number 1 favorite book of all time, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, out of it's place. I debated on whether or not it was worthy of the number 1 spot, and decided that it was. Demon Kissed and Shiver might be sharing the number 1 spot, though. I am still deciding to this very day. Maybe i should reread Shiver and then decide. Oh, well!! I can't wait for the next book to come out, Curse Of The Valefar or Cursed (i can't figure out which it is, because i have heard of both of these), on August 31,2011. I KNOW it won't dissapoint!!! I LOVE this series, no matter what!!!

I was instantly captivated by the characters in this book. I couldn't put it down. I cannot wait for the next one. As soon as i started the book it was impossible to put down.
Caroline Camp More than 1 year ago
This book had so many twist to the plot it was mind blowing! I was proven wrong so many times when it came to the ending! It was all like i love you, BOOM betrayal oh wait no it was all fake boom another betrayal but not really i did it to save you! I could not figure it out and then when it came to the love intrest she threw so many curve balls at you it was like suprise after suprise and it was just so amazing! This book was beautifully writen and there better be a second one because the ending makes you want more! Ahhhh! It is just an amzing all over book and you would be seriously missing out! Buy it!!!!
Tfalick More than 1 year ago

Meagan22183 More than 1 year ago
At first the book was kind of cheesy, much like the show HEROS, it seemed like everyone Ivy knew turned out to be supernatural. BUT, the story-line is good! And i got drawn in, and couldn't put the book down :D for a book that only for .99 on the NOOK, it was amazing! Definitely recommend it!
Valerie Som More than 1 year ago
This book is AMAZING!!!! I totally reccomend reading it. It grabs your attention with the very first sentence and doesnt let go until the very last. Long story short, its a very unique book and you will NOT regret getting it.
Gabriella Patano More than 1 year ago
This was a really great book. I want ivy to save collin so badley. I cant wait for the second book to come out!
allie_b More than 1 year ago
This is one of the rare finds where the story draws you in and refuses to let go. Narrated in such detail, you are taken on an epic journey that will make you feel a part of Ivy Taylor's world, with a vested interest in each character. It takes an extraordinary piece of literature to drive the emotions and senses felt while reading this novel. Demon Kissed is the beginning of an amazing adventure....
Vamp-Girl More than 1 year ago
this is a great book it completely surprised me how good this book was gonna be it is a definitely good read and i recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a great book that isnt too expensive :)
kristinja73 More than 1 year ago
I was immediately drawn into this thrilling, twisting and always surprising read from the very first page. Everything from the color and the font of the cover to the very first page drew me in. The old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover" doesn't hold true in this case. Holly Ward wrote an outstanding debut indie book. I was hooked from page one. Filled with turns, drops, and spirals; the book reminded me of a first ride on a roller coaster. Ivy Taylor's character was dramatic and built layers deep. She struggles with problems most teenagers don't have. She has lost her sister and drowns her sorrows by indulging in random make-out sessions with anonymous boys. She trusts very few and will be forced to question the trust of everyone around her. Her life depends on it. Every character plays an integral role in this book. Demon Kissed is a classic struggle between good and bad; however, as you read, you will find that things are rarely as black and white as they may seem. Are some things purely destiny or do we have control by the choices we make? Cursed, the second book in this series, will be release later this summer. I cannot wait.

The author added me on facebook..and she was promoting her book...so i finally caved in and bought it..AMAZING :) she had a lot of turns and twists..i often asked myself who to believe..what to believe..also had a nice "book grippig" scene.. She just had a baby but she is working hard on that second book :) and she really is sweet! read the book and chat w/ her on facebook!! right now she is busy w/ her newborn but she still makes time for her fans :)

The author invites the reader at the end of "Demon Kissed" to read the first chapter of the sequel, "Cursed," if we "can't wait" to read the next book. I CAN'T WAIT! There's a reason this book is so popular. Ward's got it all goin' on here: suspense, romantic tension, intrigue throughout, not much not to love in this novel! This is the 5th book I've read with some kind of spin on angelic/demon themes and it is the very best. Tight prose and superb pacing make this an I-can't-put-it-down. Go ahead, I dare you, it was that *fantastic*. I read all but the last three percent (I know,I know, but I fell asleep on the last part and the Kindle hit my face...that happens sometimes). I finally finished the ending today and wOw! Sophia has a guy she's great friends with that's a lady's man and it's just the way she likes it; "safe." Relationships have been a sore spot in the past and keeping everyone at arms' length really appeals. When Collin tries to get closer, she pulls away. In steps Eric, her lab partner, and he is the perfect foil for the relationship progressing toward intimacy. Soon, Sophia discovers who she really is and more importantly, what her purpose is. The entire novel pokes a dirty stick at trust in relationships, constantly forcing the MC to analyze her decisions at every turn. This alone made the novel a tense, page-turner. The premise was very unique in a sea of "sameness" in this little sub-genre and I was so pleased to try and figure out all the information and how the author tied it together. I buy the sequel to books that have a series about half the time. Many times I'll read the first in a series but if it's pretty good or mediocre, I won't buy the second. I will be RACING out to buy "Cursed" ASAP. If you like a fast-paced, action-driven novel with an interesting premise, this is the one for you~! People that liked the novel, "The Soulkeepers," will love this.

I'm not a thirteen year old girl, but i certainly enjoyed this book. Slightly predictable at times but catches you by surprise at others. It has a solid story line that hasn't been done (ahem.. vapires) a hundred times. Looking forward to the next book.
