In Midarri, Xishu Huon is a quarter-breed, which means she is considered inferior by the Yama as that 25 percent is the lowly human. She was Prince Corum¿s friend when he was a young boy, but exiled to an orphanage once her tainted blood became known and her skill to somehow caused Corum to feel emotions, a taboo amongst the Yama.------------- Years later Corum has not yet met his soulmate as his eyes remain non black when the eyes turn, the Yama knows they have found their beloved. His royal parents worry for him so they encourage their offspring to accept a woman for his sexual pleasure and education. Corum has become known as the PRINCE OF ICE for obvious reasons, but he melts when he sees Xishu. As it becomes apparent that they are soulmates, adversaries continue Machiavellian plots to destroy the royals with Xishu their expendable pawn.------------ PRINCE OF ICE is a fabulous erotic Demon World tale (humans call the Yama demons) that grips readers once Xishi and Corum meet as young adults and never slows down (even for sexual encounters). Readers will enjoy this paranormal gender changing Roman Holiday with strong intrigue undercurrent as the Prince and the tainted commoner fall in love.--------------- Harriet Klausner

Holly definitely has a grasp of detail when it comes to "hot" subjects. The setting and plot were interesting as well. Every now and then I had to adjust to her mix of genres with this book, as periodism and futuristic content came together as unexpected "normalacy". However, the erotic thread throughout this whole book kept me reading!

If anyone's interested, here's the plot printed on the back of the book: "Humans like to call them demons, but the yama are and old and civilized race--far too civilized to fraternize with lesser beings, a view the highborn among them adhere to most stringently. It is only through plots and subterfuge that a quarter-human infant, one Xishi Huon, infiltrates a princely household. There she is raised side by side with Corum, the Midarri heir, whose own peculiarities make her his soul mate...at least until the whispers of their unnatural fondness lead her to be banished to an orphanage. Coming of age as a courtesan, Xishi excels in the erotic arts. But when Corum becomes her new owner, the relationship will test the limits of her gifts. Corum is the Prince of Ice now and not the sensitive boy she knew. If he succumbs to the temptations of ther human touch, their bond will defy every convention his kind holds dear. If he doesn't, his uncontrollable sexual needs might drive them both insane. Neither suspects what is happening behind the scenes, that the very plots that brought them together could end up costing them their lives." I really liked this book. Read it!!

Although each book can be read as a stand alone I think it helps to read all the series just for more info. This book has great character development starting with the two main characters as childhood friends. They are separated and both go through many trials before meeting back up as adults. I don't want to ruin the story for anyone but these two must face some rocky time but also have a great time together. This book is pretty HOT and STEAMY!! The next book in this series has character that were developed in this book and its predessor "The Demon's Daughter" and I can't wait.
