Review: The Demon Kiss


Can someone else's past come back to bite you?
After being drained of nearly all the blood in her body, novice witch, Portia Mullins, wakes up to find that her warlock boyfriend, Vance Mangum, has fled in search of his demon father. Determined to keep him from facing the evil alone Portia follows after him, unknowingly setting herself on the path of a new adventure that will take her, Vance, and their coven over international borders, into a foreign place where they will discover that the black magic which awaits them is far worse than they ever imagined. Portia finds herself tangled up in a web of lies and deceit in another's quest for demonic power in the excitingly romantic second paranormal novel in the Of Witches and Warlocks Series, The Demon Kiss.


Wow, this series is just awesome. This is the second book in the Of Witches and Warlocks series. This book takes you on a roller coaster ride - making you feel just about every emotion imaginable. The author has an awesome way of somehow making you feel what the main character, Portia, is feeling. The story has a great plot and wonderful characterization. You'll love all the characters - well, expect for the ones you're not supposed to love! Ok, first I want to warn you that this review may contain spoilers if you haven't read the first book in this series. I will try my best to not spoil anything for you in this book, which is really hard to do sometimes.

The book begins with Portia's friends being there for her, and risking their own lives to go in search for Vance. Vance is Portia's soulmate. They are perfect for each other, and the sparks are unimaginable. In this book, Portia is feeling upset and angry with Vance for leaving her to search for his father. Everything that Vance does is to protect Portia, and you can't help but love him for that. If you loved Vance in the first book, you'll love him twice as much in this one. Seriously, almost every scene between Vance and Portia gives me butterflies and I feel ridiculously lame for it. They make me feel like a giddy school girl swooning over her crush, and I'm a married mother of 2 who has been out of school for *cough* 12 years. Not that I have any issues about feeling old or anything...

See how easily distracted I am? Ok, now back to the book. Not only does this book have an abundance of romance and passion, it has plenty of humor, suspense, and adventure as well. This book just goes non-stop and when you get to the end, you'll be begging for more.
