Demon Princess: Reign Check Plot Overview:
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.
