  • A Demon Made Me Do It (Demonblood Series #1) on May 21, 2012

    Have you ever shared your life with someone, say a sibling for example. Imagine that sibling is your complete opposite in every way, annoys the hell out of you and you hate her. Now imagine she shares a body with you! Liora's life wasn't always this complicated. As a half-human, half-demon or demion, she had a charmed life. By day she made friends and played with humans, and by night she had fun with fires of hell....literally. but all that changed when a curse by another demon caused her soul to be ripped into half - Liora, the human and Lucky - the demon. Where Liora is sweet, compassionate and smart, Lucky is sarcastic, funny and crazy with not an ounce of common sense. they do have one thing in common though, they can't stand each other. Written hilariously, Penelope King imagines a world where our greatest dreams and darkest nightmares come true - and karma isn't just a concept. It's a gown-wearing Justice Demon having fun. Temptation has a name and hell hounds love to party. But not all is fun and rosy in this land. Trouble soon comes knocking, and both Liora and lucky soon discover just how complicated it can get when love and lust finds them, especially when they do not refer to the same person. King has a wonderful imagination and the world she has created fills me with awe. It is a land I really don't want to leave, especially to return to school! What I really love though is the Liora and Lucky's relationship. They may claim to despise each other, hell that is inevitable when you are guided by the timeline of a complete opposite personality, but at the end of the day, they know they aren't really mad at each other. They are just worried that they may never get back to how they truly belong. They may never be whole. Filled with hilarious commentary (more of Lucky's that Liora's) and awesome characters (I loved Tatiana and Corrine - I would love to see more of them), A Demon Made Me Do It is a book you don't want to miss.

    Rating: 3.5 Have you ever shared your life with someone, say a sibling for example. Imagine that sibling is your complete opposite in every way, annoys the hell out of you and you hate her.

Temptation has a name and hell hounds love to party. But not all is fun and rosy in this land. Trouble soon comes knocking, and both Liora and lucky soon discover just how complicated it can get when love and lust finds them, especially when they do not refer to the same person. King has a wonderful imagination and the world she has created fills me with awe. It is a land I really don't want to leave, especially to return to school! I do have an issue, however, with Lucky's freezing up every time she needs to fight. For a supposedly great fighter, she panics a lot. What I really love though is the Liora and Lucky's relationship. They may claim to despise each other, hell that is inevitable when you are guided by the timeline of a complete opposite personality, but at the end of the day, they know they aren't really mad at each other. They are just worried that they may never get back to how they truly belong. They may never be whole.
