Demon Kissed BOOK REVIEW!

Demon Kissed

The Summoner's Mark Book 1

by J.D. Blackrose

Genre: Paranormal Romance

"This book is GOOD!" --Faith Hunter, NYT and USA Today bestselling author of the Jane Yellowrock series

My name is Rebecca, but everyone calls me Becs.

Years ago, a mark appeared on my inner wrist--The Kiss, they call it--and it makes me a summoner. I can summon, well, things…entities of power, including demons. Which, I did, until recently. I quit, because I summoned a demon on behalf of a client and things went south. I fixed it, but now I owe that demon a favor and I don't know when he's going to call it in, or, what he's going to ask.

One thing's for sure, it won't be kosher.

Now I work in a fae bar, trying to stay out of trouble, waiting for the hammer to drop. But trouble tends to follow me. And my upstairs neighbor, Ash, seems to be right in the thick of it. He's gorgeous, with sexy curls, kissable lips, and a body to match. I can't believe someone like him even glanced my way.

Things get complicated when a local mob boss wants my help, a warlock decides I'm next on the menu, and my six-foot-tall fairy friend can't find his way home.

What's a Jewish, bird-watching summoner with family and friends to protect, to do?

Praise for Demon Kissed: "A fantastic protagonist, killer magic system, and a supporting cast you'll fall in love with, J. D. Blackrose's Demon Kissed is a fantastic new urban fantasy. I loved this book and can't wait to read more!" --John G. Hartness, Award-Winning Author of The Black Knight Chronicles

"This book is GOOD! Blackrose proves that a creative writer can grab you with an original twist." --Faith Hunter, NYT and USA Today bestselling author of the Jane Yellowrock series

"Magic, snark, a dash of romance, and a ton of action. Demon Kissed offers a compelling blend of fun and edge-of-your-seat excitement. Compulsively readable and highly recommended!" --David B. Coe/D. B. Jackson, author of Radiants and the Thieftaker Chronicles

"J. D. Blackrose's latest tale spins together demons, mobsters, fairies, and a kick-ass heroine under a curse that may end up being her salvation. *Chef's Kiss*." --Darin Kennedy, Author of Fugue & Fable and The Pawn Stratagem

Demons, Fae, and…Krav Maga?

You read that right.

In Rebecca Greenblatt’s world, they all coexist, and not at all peacefully.

J.D. Blackrose’s newest book, Demon Kissed, introduces us to Rebecca’s world, and boy, is it an interesting one!

Becs, as she’s known to her friends, has a problem. She has the Summoner’s Kiss, which allows her to call demons to her, no matter how powerful, without creating a circle or any danger to herself. Naturally, a rare talent like this has people chasing it, willing to pay money to have their wishes granted. Becs does this until a job goes sideways, leaving her in a precarious position.

And that’s where the book begins.

Ms. Blackrose skillfully weaves a world where Christian demonology, various varieties of fae, and magic all coexist in a way which is utterly believable and, hard as it may be to believe, commonplace. The ordinariness of Becs’ life ought to clash with the fantastic goings-on, yet instead it complements it. The plot progresses logically and cohesively, with each step a natural progression from the last. There wasn’t any point where I felt I needed to make an effort to believe.

The characters are engaging and entertaining. Becs tells us the story, and Ms. Blackrose is careful not to tell us anything outside her ken. All the pieces are given to us as Becs discovers them, and while there was one point which I figured out before the protagonist, the rest came as pleasant surprises.

Oh, and Krav Maga?

Sorry, you’ll have to read the book to find out.

Definitely worth getting into. This series promises to be FUN!
