Demon From the Dark by Kresley Cole

Another passionate novel in an amazing series! Immortals After Dark is my favorite paranormal romance series out there, and I'm glad to say Kresley Cole delivered once again a page-turner.

This time around, we witness the growing relationship between Carrow, a rebel witch who's been kidnapped and pressured to recover a vemon, and said venom (demon turned vampire), Malkom. I think what I liked most were the numerous and virtually unbeatable challenges they had to face in their relationship. The biggest one being the language barrier. Carrow speaks English, and understand very little demonish. Malkom on the under hand used to know a little English, but due to dire circumstances, he forced this language out of his brain and speaks only demonish now. It's one hell of a barrier to overcome, especially when all the psychologists agree that communication is the key to a lasting relationship lol

There's is also a small detail like the fact that Carrow is suppose to seduce him so she can drag him back to the human facility holding her adopted daughter in hostage. How can you get involved in a relationship doomed from the start? Especially since Malkom seems to be such a careless brute, all seven feet of him. The Demon also bears numerous psychological traumas and Carrow can only glimpse the tip of the iceberg. The poor hero has been betrayed once and again and trust doesn't come easy. I thought it was smart of Cole to put Malkom in a position where he had to trust Carrow, when her intentions are to betray him from the start. Her moral debate was even better when she realized she was starting to have feelings for him but knew deep down it wouldn't change the outcome.

Cole's writing was as usual extremely engaging and I kept turning pages late into the night. I liked that plot events kind of split the timeline of our hero's relationship in three: The pre-betrayal romance, the actual betrayal and anger, and the possible reconciliation. The whole novel was a roller-coaster of emotions and I enjoyed myself very much! 

The conclusion promises much action in the novel to come because the situation in which Carrow and Malkom found themselves is far from settled, and I'm extremely curious to see what comes next.

  4. Yet time and again transgender people have to explain to a complete stranger the most intimate
    details of their very being simply to get a position washing dishes or cleaning
    toilets; and they tell me there is no cisgender privilege.
    The individual can first of all think about shaving. They control exactly how they present to the world and can make up their lives exactly the
    way they dream it should be.
