Demon Princess Reign Check

by Michelle Rowen

Nikki Donovan was a demon princess. Now she’s a demon princess in love.

Fresh from finding out she is a demon princess and meeting her father for the first time, Nikki Donovan is looking forward to getting back to her regular high school life. But then Rhys, the handsome teenage king of the faery realm, enrolls at her school as a “foreign exchange student.” Her conflicted feelings for Rhys and her boyfriend are getting in the way of her new relationship with the Shadow-creature Michael. But this love triangle from hell isn’t even Nikki’s biggest problem: There’s a new prophecy that claims she will destroy all the demon and human worlds. Her best friend Melinda just might be a demon-slayer-in-training. Throw in a field trip to none other than the Underworld itself . . . and Nikki’s going to be hoping for a rain check on more than just her homework!

My Thoughts: I have been on such a kick of reading Young Adult books! And amazing ones at that! In the first book Demon Princess Reign or Shine. We meet Nikki Donovan who moved to a new town two months because her mom got remarried, for the fourth time! Her father left her and her mom before she was even born. She is just trying to fit it and becomes friends with the popular girl. She snags a super cute popular guy and her life can't get any better. Until, she gets herself a bit of a stalker and finds out that her father is dying and he is demon! What does that make her? Yes, thats right, his heir to the throne and a demon princess. We get to know her stalker whose name is Michael. Michael is a shadow and basically a servant to her father. Of course Michael just so happens to catch Nikki's eye in a more than friend kind of a way and she begins to have feelings for him. She realizes things may not may as they seem and she just wants a normal life.

Now I'm done with the refresher course! In Demon Princess Reign Check, Nikki is back, even trying to be more normal than before. She is going to school, not letting her being a demon princess control her life. But than, what has to happen? Rhys, the fairy who lives in the forest aka the King Of The Fairy Side enrolls in Nikki's school. There is a new prophecy that insists Nikki is going to destroy everything and Rhys needs to know if its true so he can protect his people! Rhys and Nikki slowly become friends and he learns many secrets during his stay in the human world. He even finds out the name of his future queen through a dragon prophecy. What he does not find out is the truth behind his parent's death but one person does know. Nikki.

Nikki's mind goes back and forth between Michael and Rhys. She has feelings for them both but how can you choose between a hot shadow and a hot fairy. I myself couldn't control the lust I felt for them both. Yes, I really do like Michael, but lately I have found myself falling more in love with fairies and Rowen throws a super cute super charming magical fairy into this book who just took my breathe away.

Does Nikki find out if the stories about her are true? Does she make any more friends along the way to take her side in a fight? What about Melinda, her demon slaying friend? What happens to Michael and Rhys?

Overall: I loved this book! This series rocks and I can't wait to read more! I hope there is going to be another book.

Cover: Love it! I think that is Michael on the cover? He's a cutie! Now I wonder what Rhys looks like. Love the pink cover and the horns on her head.

What I'd Give It:
