About the Author

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting, banking, and a (very) brief teaching career before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing--and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

I had a hard time reading the previous book in the series, Demon Angel, because of some intense world building full of complex rules that demons, angels, vampires, hellhounds, nosferatu, and guardians must follow. I found it extremely confusing, but I was intrigued enough to keep reading and re-reading confusing passages until I sorted it out. I ended up doing some research on Brook's website (see The Primer) and online reviews with spoilers so that I think I figured things out. Fortunately, DM was much clearer and much easier to understand. The hero Colin is a 200 year old vampire who made this book worth reading on his character alone. He was made by a nosferatu and therefore cannot feed from other vampires so he feeds on humans. Colin is an extremely beautiful man and utterly vain and I was half in love with him myself. Savi is brilliant and fascinating and seemed to be a perfect match for him. The non-stop action kept me riveted to the story and I had a hard time putting it down. It's one of those books where you aren't sure how H/H could get their HEA, but they did and I thoroughly enjoyed it.My grade: A-

Although there is a lot of writing to this book I'd be hard pressed to say what really happened in it. It wasn't that the story was slow or ponderous, it did read at a fairly good pace without being boring, it is just that a lot of what happened seemed to happen more than once. The story seemingly starts in the middle with the two characters already having a rather traumatic past together. Since I read the first two stories of the series quite a while ago, references to their shared past made me feel a bit lost. In this tale Colin is a centuries old nosferatu born vampire, and unique in his own world, with a inherited connection to the realm of chaos which exists below Hell. He is also arguably the most beautiful being on the planet. Savitri is a human who accidentally stumbled upon her association to the realm of the paranormal through former guardian (i.e. angel), Hugh Castleford, and his demonic girlfriend. When an airplane Savitri is on is threatened by a nosferatu terrorist, her actions save the plane, but changes her existence. She is then placed in the care of Colin who is sworn to protect her, but is concerned he might not be able to protect her from himself.I did enjoy the story, despite the fact there were some confusing parts and parts where the action seems to get a little out of hand. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances and vampire stories in general.

I liked this one even better than the first. It was great to get a look at the characters of the first book in their future roles.

Wow!! This was a wonderful read, and feautered great writing, witty dialogue and interesting characters. Overall I'd say this was a wonderful read with only minor exceptions and would recomend this to anyone who is into the whole paranormal romance genre, especialy those looking for something to read while waiting for the next BDB book.The characters really made this book. For someone who doesn't particualy like the experianced heroine, and Salvi proclaims that she is a few times, I was surprised by how much I liked her, mainly because it was a normal part of her background and not something the author created to define the heroine, which is what really annoys me with many books I read but that's not important. Salvi is not cookie cutter at all, she's well developed and realistic, and very human in a book where most people aren't. The hero Colin made the book, the author describes him on her site as a vain beautiful vain vampire, and he was, and loved him for it. He was born in the regency era, and in many ways reminded me of a regency hero, in fact of all the romances I've read about immortals his is the believable character I know, he really felt like someone who came out of a past era. There's nothing sexier then a regency hero in the modern day, Colin has proven that. Salvi and Colin together is also wonderful for they have a great ability to banter and their conversations were able to do something for me that I find harder and harder, make me believe that they are two people deeply and love, I didn;t have to make myself believe in their story, the story made me believe all by itself.While overall I enjoyed the flow and pacing and the pros of this book I found it at times difficult to follow. Sometimes the way the author described events or problems had me confused as if she'd left something out, at times I read scenes not really knowing what was happening. Still it didn't effect the book to much and only lost one star for it.

I had the pleasure to read one of Meljean Brooks shorts in an anthology I had purchased and quickly got hooked on her Demon series. It has a great plot, good characters who do show up in the various other books. The angels are not fallen but not in heaven either, so here on Earth they watch out for the 'good' guys-- humans-- whilst Demons do try to make the humans do the bad stuff. Of course there are rules for the Demons and this is why the angels are here. Her characters do have humor which is a plus for me in books like this for it can't all be 'loving' and vampire gloom. or Paranormal Gloom. I would recommend this for anyone who does read Paranormal series as it just fits.
