Review: The Demon King and I by Candace Havens

The eldest of four sisters and one brother, Gillian Caruthers, has two lives. Her public life is that of a wealthy socialite, party girl and owner of successful art galleries all over the globe. Her private life is as a Guardian Key. A trained killer of any demon that enters our world unauthorized.

When someone begins targeting Gillian and her family she requires the help of the newly crowned demon king Arath. Instantly she feels a connection with Arath which startles her as she normally kills those of his kind but there’s more to him than the demon she can see on the surface.

Together they work to uncover the evil ones behind the plot to destroy the earth while becoming closer each day. But Gillian is keeping a secret from Arath that may destroy their budding relationship.

First in the new series featuring the Caruthers sisters this book starts off with a bang. Gillian is a kick ass tough girl with a soft side and I love the way the paranormal aspects of the book weave so naturally with the real world. It kind of makes me think that maybe there’s more to Paris Hilton than we really know.

I was already a huge fan of Havens’ Charmed series featuring Bronwyn the witch and now there’s even more to devour. I can’t wait for the July release of book two in the series, Dragons Prefer Blondes and I recommend this one to all paranormal lovers.

Kind of reminds me of Jennifer Estep's superhero series :) Sounds like a good book though!
