To start with I loved Donna's ideal of giving you a list of characters -names ,how to pronounce them,species,age,powers,and what their job is. It so helped get you right into the story and understanding everything, I think I wish that happened more often.I was entrapped by the story right away . Loved the way the centuries old characters use there enlightened ways for humor against the younger ones, even if they outranked them. There is a joyful occasion, ends in tragic actions causing decisions to be made that if everyone had spoken the truth to each other might have changed what was done. But then we wouldn't have had this wonderful story to read ! It was extremely funny to watch it unfold when hidden truths had to be told.Also Ania who is so mad that Liam had not told her things involving her, but he slowly starts to find out she wasn't totally upfront with everything either for she had her own secrets but being 918 years old it could take awhile to tell everything to a 268 year old male. But she is also mad at Dorian (623 years old) a friend, ex student, but also best friend of Liam and Liam was his Captain- so he was in a hard stop he knew things about each but refused to tell on either, offered advice, help, friendship but would not mediate their mating relationship. Of course he is just as bad about ignoring his own chances of a mating, he has only been grieving his lost mate for 100 years. Then you have the half human Gwin (35) First Mate, a warrior of strong skill but will meet her match in a smaller ,more skilled woman. You have all these different races, different powers and strengths,on board a spaceship. So their is lots of fun, some sorrow, love in all the right places- even if the parties involved are not admitting it- in this part of the story and I can't wait to continue it to see more of the fun of them fighting nature.

The Demon of Synar is the first in a two-part story, which is part of a bigger series. In this story, we learn about Liam and Ania, Demon Master and unknowing Demon Host. Liam places his Demon within Ania to save her life, but his decisions after that leave a lot to be desired. Now it is time to face the music and admit to Ania what he has done and why. Ania shows more strength and character than Liam gave her credit for, to his detriment. Their story concludes in this book as they are finally coming to terms with what has happened, although Ania still has some tricks up her sleeve.

This is a well written book that moves along at a swift pace. A few things are glossed over, and being as their world is so large, sometimes you can feel a bit lost. However, on the whole, this is a very good part one which finishes definitely leaving you wanting more.

I liked this book. The ending was very unsatisfying however, probably because it is a lead in to a longer series. There was no resolution to any of the issues raised. I expect the answers are to be found in the next book, but I was left feeling somewhat cheated out of a logical ending of some kind.

This book is in one of my favorite genres - space opera sci-fi with a little paranormal thrown in. It starts a little slow but picks up quickly as the meek and mild fiance reveals a more interesting background. It is a lead in to a series composed of longer books so the plot is not as developed as I expect the main books in the series. An interesting start to a series.
