Wanted by law enforcement. Chased by drug cartels. Hunted by demons... Constance Ramirez has more than her share of problems when it comes to protecting her adopted sister, Andromeda. Especially since Andromeda isn’t fully human, and her strange powers are dangerous and out of control. But Constance will do anything to keep her safe, which won’t be easy with bounty hunters hired by the drug cartel she betrayed looking to capture her, and savage monsters seeking to take Andromeda for their own dark purposes. Being a big sister has never been so hard... Or so deadly.

Title: Demon’s Daughter Author: Amy Braun Genre: NA Urban Fantasy Format: Ebook Pages: 325 Rating: 5 Heat: 0 Thoughts: Wow, this just jumps right in and speeds along until the very end. Constance and her adopted sister, Andromeda, are on the run from a drug lord, the US marshals, and monsters. Turns out those monsters are demons and they want Andromeda, Dro. Throw in some weird abilities, lack of control, and no information they finally find some help, maybe? This was so intense and the reader learns as much as the characters which I love. Every time I had to put it down (work, family, life lol) I couldn't wait to get back to it. Great start to a promising series. It is a little gory so if that bothers you you've been warned. Otherwise it's a roller-coaster ride with small pockets of rest that will leave you begging for more. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
interesting start. Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Connie has been running with her sister for ages, From law enforcement agencies, from the drug cartels and from the red demons who appear all over. But she needs help now to find out what Andromeda really is, because with her growing powers, its clear she is not fully human. Dark and so deliciously deadly! I really enjoyed this! Constance found, quite literally, Dro as a baby and her family adopted her. As she grew, Dro developed powers and it became clear she was not of this world. After a massacre in their home town, Connie took Dro and ran across the border to try to find her father's people. That didn't turn out so well. Connie and Dro have been running for so long but now, with Dro's powers growing, and her inability to control some of them, especially while she sleeps, its painfully obvious to Connie that she needs help. To find out who Dro really is, and to help her control the fire. What they find, with Max and Manny and a pair of angels, is that Dro is much more powerful and much more deadly than any of them realised. She is the key to open the gates to both Heaven AND Hell, and if Lucifer gets his way, and the gates are opened, no one is safe. It is just single person POV, with only Connie having her say but I didn't mind it too much here. It is quite violent, graphically so and I did enjoy it, which surprised me. Sometimes I don't like to read such detailed fighting descriptions, but I did enjoy it here. It is clean, but Connie and Warrick, the demon slayer who joins their little group, have something brewing and I hope we get that in Dark Divinity, book two, which I have to read next. 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
If TV’s Supernatural were about sisters instead of brothers, it would look a lot like Demon’s Daughter. “It would take firefighters hours to put out the blaze, and even longer to figure out the cause. Not that they’d come to the proper conclusion, because cases of teenage girls spontaneously combusting weren’t normal. But on the other hand, my sister had never been normal.” Demon’s Daughter falls smack dab inside my Urban Fantasy wheelhouse. I loved it -- beautiful cover art, lots of action, and evil monster smack-downs -- with monsters both otherworldly and human. Though the book has a lot of similarities to TV’s Supernatural -- angel/demon mythology, hyper-responsible and -protective siblings, and tragic relationships -- it’s not a copy. It will appeal to fans of the show, certainly, but it won't bore them. I connected with Connie and Dro as characters immediately. I could feel how tiring and lonely their life on the run might be. They quickly meet a young psychic, Max, and his father, Manny, who are clued in to the supernatural world and do their best to help the sisters find what they need. Later, when they are on the run, they meet up with two angels, one decent and one a jerk, and a demon hunter named John Warrick. Connie and John have similar histories -- John having lost a sister to the same bounty hunter who is after Connie. As a reader, you start rooting for John and Connie to get together, support each other in their crazy, wacked-out lives. But broken hearts have a way of rejecting what’s best for them, so by the end of the book, you don’t know if the two will be helping each other or not. I’d say the Cursed series is going to be one to watch for any urban fantasy fan. The story and writing are very good and the characters are relatable. I get to add Amy Braun to my Favorite Authors Discovered This Year list, and I'm giving this book a 3.5 because of that. I’m eager to see what’s next for Connie and Dro since, while they have some answers by the end of Book 1, they don’t have them all... and the fates of Heaven, Hell, and Earth are at risk.
