Daemon Seer

The Daemon World

Written by Mary Maddox

Genre(s): Paranormal

As a teenager, Lu Darlington attracted national attention when she and her friend Lisa escaped a sadistic killer known as the Professor of Death. She never told anyone about the daemon who saved her life that day.

Ten years later, Lisa shows up at Lu’s door, fleeing another psychopath stalker. But Lisa’s not the only one seeking Lu after all this time. One by one, the daemons descend:

Voracious Chama. Sinister Black Claw. Beautiful Talion.

Chama wants Lu, but Talion claims her. The women of Lu’s family have always belonged to Talion—and they’ve suffered deeply for it.

As the human threat draws closer, Talion demands that Lu bind herself to him in a harrowing ceremony that will destroy an innocent man and change her forever—but might save Lisa’s life.

Can she navigate the violent intrigues of the daemon world without being consumed by its terrible, all-consuming demands?

Walki's Review

Not for everyone...

People who loved this book might be shocked by my rating. If I were to give it three stars according to the Goodreads system, I would be lying, because honestly I didn't like it. I thought it was okay, but I respect that other readers have different tastes.

I chose to read this book out of curiosity about the connection between Lu and Lisa. While they were kidnapped together as teenagers, Lu was luckier than Lisa. Lisa has been damaged by multiple abuse throughout life and need, as an adult, she needs validation from men. While Lisa is a drug addict and attract the worse men, Lu is keeping out of relationships and out of trouble. The two friends have a strong bond and need each other.

On the run from a crooked cop, Lisa takes refuge at Lu's. Lu has problems of her own. Talion, the daemon who rescued her when she was kidnapped with Lisa, decided to claim her. He is not the only daemon who wants her.

Why I didn't like it? The style of writing, while flowing, lacked the depth I generally enjoy. While I felt sympathy for the two friends, I couldn't connect with them. While I could understand their predicament, I couldn't feel much for them. There were too many sex scenes for my taste. Clearly, this novel was not for me.
