Publishers Weekly

Full of paranormal passion, Sunny's fast-paced first in a new erotic fantasy series, the Demon Princess Chronicles, introduces Lucinda, a 600-year-old demon princess who's getting bored with her long unlife. At least she has an official duty to pass the time: seeking out wayward demons and returning them to Hell. Lucinda finds herself attracted to Stefan, a renegade warrior of the alien Monère, but before they can get too cozy, duty calls and she must track down another rogue, Nico. She brings Nico to his cruel queen, but then claims him for her own along with Talon, a maltreated Floradëur, "a flower of darkness," whose blood gives demons more power. The whole crew goes to Hell to recharge Lucinda's supernatural batteries and return Talon to his own kind, with Derek, a dangerous demon who wants Talon back, in pursuit. Sunny (Mona Lisa Awakening) has created a Hell reminiscent of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy and the fiction of Laurell K. Hamilton. (Aug.)

The author CLAIMS to be a former physician who gave up her practice to write. Did someone actually give up the joy of SAVING LIVES, the satisfaction of helping others, to write something this bad? This is the worst kind of Mary-Sue Sex Heals Everything clap trap. The main female character is a demon named Lucinda who hunts rogue demons instead of vampires. I think she had sex with every male character in the book in only 277 pages--and every time under some horrible danger that only Lust and Sex could save them from. And at the end, Lucinda pulls a complete Mary Sue and manages to turn into a dragon, which she hadn't figured out in over 600 years existence, just in time to save her many Boy-Toys from certain death, all of whom worship the poop on her shoes and only want to Serve her for all eternity. If you like Anita Blake, you'll like this book. If you realize that LKH has ruined the entire Genre, that this character is just a theft of Anita Blake with a changed appearance, name and origin, and you're sick of Mary-Sue'isms, sick of men with no spine, sick of vampires with no bite that glitter like they're a 10 year old's Sparkly Barbie and Ken, and you're tired of bad writing....You have taste and wouldn't read this if someone paid you.

I had read the Mona Lisa series and love them. Was so sad when I realized that I had read the last and needed to wait for the next book to be released. Then I heard that she had written about Halceon's sister - Lucinda - wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it as much - but I did. Sunny is a terrific writer, very engaging, immaginitive and sexy without being cheesy - I have even read all of her mini stories and her Lucinda series is just as creative and of course true to Sunny writing style - very sexy :)

If you enjoyed the Mona Lisa series by the same author then buy this book. If you didn't enjoy the Mona Lisa series then bypass... Easy read with charactors that you find yourself cheering for and reaching for book two. Warning:This book is not for anyone easily offended (graphic violence and sex).

First off I must say I LOVE SUNNY! I have read her Mona Lisa series many times and they are some of my most treasured books. This book did not disappoint and I'll be re-reading it again many times in the future! If you like this book I highly recommend the second and the Mona Lisa series.
