    This was simply an awesome book. I love Juliana's books. I thought the trials that Rowan was going through made her a more believable person. I enjoyed the story line and the family interactions. I also loved how Azaiel interacted with Rowan's family.

    I was disappointed with the main character, Rowan. She was awful. No feelings, not a leader, couldn't even tell that she cared about anything except herself. I liked all the other characters but really the author spent so much time on Rowan that the other characters never developed. Ms. Stone takes the time to write in all these characters but then fades them to the background where a sentence or two is mentioned about them but nothing brings them into the story. Rowan does not lead anyone even though she keeps on saying this is "her fight" and that she is the "alpha dog". She did not win any understanding or sympathy from me. She was a child who ran away from her problems and then came back still acting like a child.

    It is a shame because I liked the storyline and the other characters. I have been following this series since the Castillo brothers books so I will probably read the next book in this series in the hopes that Ms. Stone will read these comments and present her next set of characters differently. The other books in the series are good to read. Except for the fact that you need to read this book to follow the series and the characters introduced, I wouldn't read this book again.

    I read all the books. I missed the entire story of Toniella and Azaiel. How did Toniella the sun gods daughter end up in hell? How did she find Azaiel to begin with? And what was with Azaiel and Skye? We could have used alot more background before you can forgive a character for all the bad things he did. And what does Logan Winters the hell hound have to do with this series? I am lost. I liked the concept, but I am a little confused.

    If you're looking for a sexy paranormal romance with an edge of danger and suspense then look no further, Juliana Stone is your woman!

    Following the events in Wicked Road to Hell, Bill, the leader of the League of Guardians, has sent the Seraphim, Azaiel, to investigate the death of a witch and find out if a traitor is behind her murder. Not everyone in the League is happy with who Bill picked for this assignment but Azaiel arrives in Salem determined to find answers.
    Rowan James is a powerful witch, maybe the most powerful of all, but she is followed by a dark curse that has plagued her family for centuries. Returning home to Salem after six years away, Rowan finds her grandmother brutally murdered and a stranger in her house. And in the midst of Rowan's grief, demons attack, forcing her to put a being she doesn't know or trust at her back.
    Rowan and Azaiel must band together to find the answers they seek and Rowan knows that to defeat the demon that hunts her, she cannot do it alone. Calling in her coven, hunters and two sullen Guardians, they prepare for Sahmain when it will come down to either the demon's life or Rowans. But as an impossible connection kindles between Rowan and Azaiel, Azaiel questions whether he'll be able to fulfill his duty. Even if they succeed in the end though, he knows that a relationship between a witch and a Seraphim is damned...

    I absolutely loved Azaiel and Rowan's story and it really surprised me that I found it even better then Declan's (Wicked Road to Hell) because, hello, Declan! Hold on, I can't even say that hot piece of sorcerer meat's name without drooling. *wipes chin* Okay, and we're back...King of the Damned blew me away with its non-stop action, intrigue and all that delayed gratification of lust just oozing from our main characters. I was seriously feeling frustrated along with Rowan every time the brakes were hit. Rowan is a warrior all the way though. She is strong willed and kick ass, but she's not stupid and recognizes right away that she needs help to defeat the demon. She's a heroine that I could easily get behind. The dialogue between her and Azaiel is really fun and entertaining because they're both born alphas so naturally butt heads. But Azaiel knows that this is Rowan's fight and backs her up, the perfect Robin to her Batman. Readers first met Azaiel in the Jaguar Warriors series, books two and three, where we learn why no one trusts him and resents his involvement in the League. But despite the other Guardian's attitudes towards him, Azaiel is never bitter or brooding over it. This was a breath of fresh air for me because I have found, in the paranormal romance genre especially, that most heroes carry a huge chip on their shoulder with a past like this. But Azaiel accepts the blame for his actions and instead of being resentful about it, works hard to make up for them and prove worthy of that second chance he was given. Azaiel is also pretty oblivious to his many...charms, which makes him even more of an endearing character. Rowan and Azaiel made a perfect fit for each other not only because of their combustible chemistry, but because Rowan and Azaiel have both done things in the past that they need to atone for in order for others to trust and respect them again.

    The world that Juliana Stone has created in The League of Guardians is constantly evolving with each book and I never know what otherworld creature to expect next! A colorful cast of characters in King of the Damned, consisting of not only Rowan's family, or coven, but the League as well as a few others, kept the plot moving forward at a fast and entertaining pace. I'm chomping at the bit for more and can't wait for the next installment. Rowan's brother, Kellan, and the Dark Fae really piqued my curiosity. And Priest, oh Priest, me thinks I have found another book hunk to add to my harem... In the meantime though, I vote for Leroy the Donkey having his own little short story! Another extraordinary read from this author, Juliana Stone is truly a rock star in the romance world!
