Review: Confessions of a Demon by S.L. Wright
Confessions of a Demon
Release Date: December 1, 2009
Allay Book #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
After accidentally stealing the life force of a dying demon, Allay became the only human-demon hybrid in existence. Demons feed on human emotions, so Allay decided the safest way to satisfy this need-and still retain some semblance of her humanity-was to open a bar. Here she can drink from, and ease, her patrons' pain, which has helped her to stay under the demon radar...until now.
When Allay is attacked and nearly killed by another demon, a human comes to her rescue. Theo Ram is tall, handsome, and mortal-and Allay feels a connection to him she didn't think she'd ever know. But that bond is tested when the demon community in New York begins to rise up, and two opposing clans fight for power. Now Allay is caught in the middle, and she must decide where her loyalties lie.
CONFESSIONS OF A DEMON was a decent book. I found that it was pretty slow which is why it only got a 3.5 but the plot was nice and twisty making it a good read. Allay is a strong main character with great supporting characters to go along on her journey. I enjoyed the way demons were made in this story to feed off of human emotions, when they are made they go with the emotion of there makers last feelings so they end up being called what there fave emotions are, Allay, Revel, Shock, etc. The ending was much faster paced than the beginning was which helped make the story better for me. Interested to see what DEMON UNDERGROUND brings to the series.
I gave it 3.5/5
