Reign Check by Michelle Rowen (Review by kiwigirlreads)


Reign Check is the second book in the Demon Princess Series.

Last week high school girl Nikki Donovan met her Dad for the first time, found out he is a Demon King, stopped an attempted coup and saved both her and her father's lives.

Now Nikki has to deal with the fact that she is a ‘darkling’ half human and half demon, if that’s not enough, the king of the fairy realm just enrolled at her high school to assess if Nikki is a threat or not. Looks like this week is going to be just as busy.

What I thought:

Light and fluffy is what I would call this series. Not that that’s a bad thing, just make sure it’s what you are after. This is teen paranormal chick lit and it’s a cute and entertaining read. 

The characters are likable, the story is fast paced and interesting.

The main thing I did not like about this book was the timing, there is only one week between what happened in the first book to what is going on now – it just seems really forced. I don’t really like it when books (or TV) try to push heaps of activity into a short time-span, it seems like this should take place over a month or so. The character keeps talking about how last week she almost died – there could have been more healing time or I don’t think she would be dealing with it as well.

Final Comments and Overall Rating:

If you liked the first one in the series then you will certainly like this one, it carries on and develops in both characterization and themes. A fun, cute read that will that will please most lovers of young adult paranormal romance.

Demon Princess Series: Reign or Shine, Reign Check, Reign Fall

Rating:☆☆☆
