Reviewed by K.J. Simmill for Readers' Favorite Angeline was meant to be a wallflower, a means for her uncle to show everyone just how beautiful his own daughter was. He wanted his daughter to marry Lord Cedric, but following a previous encounter, Cedric only had eyes for Angeline. He hated her and loved her. He wished for her demise, yet fought to keep her safe. His incubus bloodline wanted the pleasure of her virginity, and another part of him craved even more. It was all he could do to be near her. Biting remarks and hostile actions become the only way to prevent himself giving in to the temptation. Cedric seeks revenge, and he needs power to exact it, and the woman with him has a magic in her blood that sings to him. Can he resist her, or will he have to succumb to the part of himself that he tries to keep repressed in order to achieve his own ambitions? In Cedric the Demonic Knight: The Cedric Series Book 1 by Valerie Willis, you watch Angeline's gradual transformation from a tearful, downtrodden whiner to a skilful, independent ranger. She feared Cedric, who treated her like despised and unwanted property, and yet she needed him. This book is written in a style that would welcome a young adult audience, and fans of L.J. Smith and Vampire Hunter D particularly will find something for them in the brooding, vicious bad boy Cedric, an incubus moroi cross blood creation nursing his own tragic past and fears. This is partly a tale of self-discovery as both Cedric and Angeline learn both who they are and about each other, and in part a supernatural quest for revenge as Cedric journeys across the land, slaying powerful and imaginative creations.
Dramatic, Lustful, and fantasy fulfilling.. This was a story that I have been waiting to read for a long time. The beginning dragged you from a fight to a mind full of wonders. I loved how this main character Cedric was full of surprises. I don’t know if I can say he was nice or evil. As you read this story, you find that Cedric has suffered a lot of things in his life that makes him a little hardcore, like us all, our experiences make us who we are in life. Angeline, my sweet Angeline.. She was very emotional, but strong at the same time. I like how she stood up to Cedric verbally. Her tongue she would not bite. She was very emotional and at times I shedded a tear or too with her. I must say I didn’t like the verbal bashing Cedric inflicted on the character Angeline, but I guess for the time that this story is set in, it was acceptable. I love how you felt like you were right in the middle of every coil between the two of them. I love the drawings that were put in the books, it added a bit of excitement to see at least what the characters looked like. It’s amazing to see the mind of Willis, to create characters that show excitement in power and not just sex. Although the two go hand and hand it was just different and I like how she created this underlining. The detail in the love scene was remarkable. It explained the lust without being graphic. You could feel the connection with these two characters that seem to be so opposite. The attraction had always been there it was just the rebelling from Cedric that caused all the build up. Every battle seemed to become more intense and it made you hold on tight for whatever was going to happen. The emotions of the lustful, feveress pleasure during each fight left you feeling like you just finished making love and had the worst fight of your life. Valerie, you are an outstanding writer and I can’t wait to read more from you.
Very good book- Couldn't put down- 5 Stars
