Overview

Fresh from finding out she is a demon princess and meeting her father for the first time, Nikki Donovan is looking forward to getting back to her regular high school life. But then Rhys, the handsome teenage king of the faery realm, enrolls at her school as a "foreign exchange student." Her conflicted feelings for Rhys and her boyfriend are getting in the way of her new relationship with the Shadow-creature Michael. But this love triangle from hell isn't even Nikki's biggest problem: There's a new prophecy that claims she will destroy all the demon and human worlds. Her best friend Melinda just might be a demon-slayer-in-training. Throw in a field trip to none other than the Underworld itself . . . and Nikki's going to be hoping for a rain check on more than just her homework!

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Nikki Donovan still isn't used to the idea that she's a demon princess, heiress to a vast netherworld called the Shadowlands (Reign or Shine, 2009). She's happy to be back to the normal, boring halls of high school until a hot foreign-exchange student, Rhys, enrolls. Rhys, who is actually the faery king, ends any hope Nikki had for normalcy. To further complicate Nikki's life, her best friend is training to become a demon slayer, and the boy who took her to the winter dance might know exactly what she is. News of a prophecy that states Nikki will bring about the apocalypse shakes the Underworld, so Nikki travels into hostile territory to confront the Underworld council. Underworld politics and a love triangle among Rhys, Nikki and Nikki's Shadow boyfriend Michael keep the story moving along. Nikki's disbelief that she's a major demon player brings humor, but she is never obnoxious or overly witty. This volume should leave readers breathless and wondering what royalty and love will bring to their horned heroine. (Supernatural chick lit. 12 & up)

    Can't wait for the next book in the series!! Review brought to

    Can't wait for the next book in the series!!

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Dawn

    Nikki is one of my favorite YA characters. She’s surprisingly mature, unafraid to speak her mind.
    Case in point: when her father wants to see her, she confronts him about keeping his promise to set Michael free.

    Middle books in series tend to suck, but this one is the exception. There’s a lot of action and problems coming at Nikki from all directions. The second book has several intricate plots going on with Michael, Rhys, Melinda (the demon slayer), Chris, Kieran …but it’s not so busy that you can’t follow. Nikki approaches each situation with a refreshing honesty and strong will to do what is right.

    It’s hard to get a read on Rhys. He seems to care for Nikki but also pushes her away. He encourages Nikki to seek a second opinion on the prophecy. While Irena is unable to confirm or deny the prophecy, she sees that Nikki is in danger. Irena is able to tell Rhys that Nikki is not a danger to him because she is pure of heart. BUT….Rhys finds out his betrothed is Nikki which is not exactly welcome news. Nikki is hysterically horrified and I’m not sure what to think.

    My heart broke for Melinda and Michael when they saw Nikki and Rhys kissing under the mistletoe but later Rhys is able to explain it away. He promptly asks Melinda out.

    Whoa! I was shocked when Chris turned out to be Irena’s child. Chris must have inherited some of her abilities because he gives Nikki a drawing of herself in full Darkling form in the Shadowlands. I did not see that one coming but it’s a great plot twist.

    When the council wants to see Nikki she chooses to go against her father and Rhys’ wishes. I felt like a proud parent as she made her choice to protect her loved ones. Kassandra (Kieran’s sister) and Nikki strike up an unlikely friendship. When Michael gets thrown in the dungeon for using his powers, Kassandra helps get him out. But, in the process, Nikki finds out a shadow (Jones who was a friend of Micheal’s father) killed Rhys’ parents. It freaked me out that a shadow can kill those they serve. Could Michael be hiding his true motives???

    Nikki struggles with controlling her emotions which in turn control her Darkling form. She deals with a great deal of adversity in the second installment but she continues to handle everything with a maturity way beyond her years.

    I can’t wait to read the final book in the series. Will Nikki stay with Michael or end up with Rhys? Will Melinda figure out Nikki is a demon? What does Kieran have up his sleeve?
