Marik Radkov believed the only thing left from his tortured past was the physical scars that adorned his body. But when he is stranded on a foreign planet, and held captive by an enticing blue eyed stranger, he is forced to face his past once more. To survive, he must subdue his lust, while keeping the mysterious and sexy woman from snaring his heart.
After escaping a violent assault of her home planet, Princess Nadua has been hiding on the cold planet Undewla for four hundred years, all but losing hope that her people will return for her. When the threat of a rebellion arises, Nadua must decide if she can trust the ruthless demon who strokes a desire she thought was long dead.


My Review:
After finishing Book 1 in the Shadow Quest Series (Demon Possession) I had to dive into book 2. Demon Slave captivated my attention from the very start. I really liked Marik’s character in Demon Possession and was thrilled to find that I would see more of him in Demon Slave. Marik is so broken inside in the beginning of Demon Slave. His past and the hardships he has endured have made him question himself and his honor and watching him fall for Nadua while at the same time trying to push her away, broke my heart. The heat between these two was intense at times but I loved that Nadua wasn’t going to take no for an answer. She refused to let Marik hold her at arms length and that made me love her character even more. Nadua is a fighter. She is the type of heroine I love reading about because she is strong and determined and doesn’t rely on being saved like some damsel in distress. 

Demon Slave made me cry, it made me laugh, and it made me shudder. I felt this story. I didn’t just read it. I am so thrilled that I have a new series to obsess over because this is one for the record books. Kiersten Fay creates a world that is riveting in its uniqueness. I have never delved into a series quiet like this one. The world-building is exquisite and Demon Slave is an absolute must read! Go HERE to see my earlier review of Demon Possession (Book 1)
