Review: Demon Princess by Kassandra Lynn

Demon Kingdom Fairy Tales, Book 1
by Kassandra Lynn
YA Fantasy
162 pages

With her father gone and her brother missing, Demon Princess Adriana has to assume the throne, temporarily becoming the Demon King. The procession is underway, and the princess is nervous yet determined … until the unthinkable happens and she is summoned! Somehow, Aldric, a mage-in-training has summoned the princess into the human kingdom. Now trapped, Adriana must hide her identity and escape before she loses her life in the hands of her mortal enemies.


The second I saw the cover and read the blurb, I knew this was one I had to get my hands on.

From the very first page, I was hooked. We meet Adriana, a demon princess, just as she's on her way to be crowned Demon King, since her brother and father disappeared. She's nervous, not sure it will work, but is ready to face what she must for the sake of her kingdom. And this already makes her a character that's easy to love, but when she's suddenly kidnapped and swept away to horrid circumstances, it's impossible not to feel for her.

But she's a princess through and through. There's the perfect hero, some more complicated characters which it was hard to determine whether they should be loved or hated, and a world ready to destroy her if they discovered who she really was. The fantastical creatures, exciting magic and dangerous battles made this into a real treat. In other words, the tension held from one page to the next, and I ended up reading this in one setting.

There are a few little holes in the plot, and a couple actions I didn't quite understand, but this by no means made the book any less fun to read. I can't wait to read book two and see what happens next. 

And here she is. . .
