The Demon King and I is the first book to be released in the Guardian series,from Candace Havens, the author of the Charmed books. It’s a terrificly witty new series featuring wealthy party girls with an interesting side job of being Guardians of portal to other worlds.
The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.
Gillian, the eldest, is a sensation in the art world– this world, that is. In her other world, she’s the Assassin, a knockout who snuffs out dimension-jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth in darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.
I really liked this book. It was funny in all the right places, it had spunk and it inspired an emotional connection as you get to know the characters. And I only have three words for Candace Haven, YOU. ARE. AWESOME. I an now a gun toting, yellow Jimi Choo show wearing fan of her’s. Well maybe not really but if I could afford it. I recommend it to anyone to read this one. Its light on the sex, heavy on the action and reaction. It is an absolute treat. If you liked this one you will love her next one called Dragons Prefer Blondes, which releases July 7, 2009.
