    EDIT: Okay, My review sounds sort of cruel. It simply was not my cup of tea. My friend on the other hand loved it. Everyone has differing opinions. Back to my cruel review.------------------------------------------Why did I ever read this book? I mean the title reveals it all, including: “Don’t read me. I'm shit." I really should stop picking books that Richelle Mead quotes on the front cover and states something along the lines of: “Demons , magic and sexy guys. This is a series I definitely want to keep reading.” Geez Richelle Mead how much did they pay you to say something polite about this book? I undeniably don’t want to keep reading this for sure. Sexy guys? Wait…there were sexy guys in the book? I swear I had only read about dull guys… but sexy. No. Just no. Demons and magic? So, in basic saying the author of Demon Princess has nothing new to add to the fantasy genre. Demon princess. The title for the series, it’s just so…I can’t. It’s dreadful. Not going to bother with a proper review. So I will just say that as I was reading this fantastic book, I acquired the skill to see into the future or maybe the book was just immensely predictable. Actually, I’ve never read a book in my life that’s this foreseeable. I figured out who was the mysterious antagonist the first time they showed up in the book. I’m unable to solve how the narrator didn’t see this though. Is she that dense?This has to be one of the books where I play a little game called:Let’s figure out how drunk the publishers were.

    Picked it up at the place that replaced borders for $5 and was reading it while I waited for Reel Steel to start (amazing by the way). And this book sure jumped right into the plot. Too bad I lost the book in my bedroom. How is that possible? You are probably asking, well I am the one person that can make it possible. So when I find it, I'll review and rate it properly.

    So,when I picked this book I thought it would be awesome.Is sounded a lot like Demon Envy by Erin Lynn,which I loved.But,man the book started somewhat fine and went downhill from there.Every single character was stupidly naive and shallow and with no depth whatsoever.I mean even the supposed evil bitch was stupid enough to be manipulated.The two main characters and their love story were very annoying,I mean they literally went from crazy stalker and person being stalked, to forbidden love and sacrificing for each other in a matter of hours- who does that.I guess I shouldn't have started with high expectations,but I am still very disappointed.The book was like a Freaking Disney movie- painfully predictable and with such plain characters.You can't even hate them, they're that plain.In conclusion, good enough for wasting some time but still wouldn't really recommend it -just too predictable.I literally knew what was gonna happen from page one and from the mention of the aunt knew everything about her.2.3

    I thought it sounded interesting in Publisher's Weekly, but I after seeing the cover I had SERIOUS doubts. These doubts transformed into disparaging contempt after two chapters.Yup, that's all it took.See, the main character is all, 'oooh i'm POPULAR and the 'cutest boy in school' kissed me and there's another hot guy following me telling me I'm a demon princess even though I look like a normal POPULAR human teenager so I'm going to not believe him' and then after a while you know she'll see that she is a demon princess and shucks, I guess she'll have to choose between the 'cutest boy in school' and some hot demon dude, and oh isn't life tough?I absolutely HATE it when young adult book have this whole 'cutest boy in school' crap. Because THERE ISN'T ONE. There are a bunch of guys who are unattractive, and then some who are somewhat attractive, and some who are attractive but in different ways and so not one will be EVERY SINGLE girl's dream date. And there are a number who are popular but aren't really attractive at all but since they can play football and grunt girls throw their panties at them. But I digress.The point is that there was nothing about the main girl that made her original or likable in any way. She was just ordinary and shallow and thought the terribly overdone 'oh poor me, i move a lot so i can't make friends' until the popular girl befriended her and then 'goodness, i cannot BELIEVE he KISSED me! OMGOMG! And it's only because I'm friends with Popular Girl but I'm going to think it's because I'm so charming and beautiful because I'm a stupid, ordinary, and shallow teenage girl who is not interesting in the slightest!'I like young adult fiction, but when the characters are shallow and ordinary and hilarity does not ensue like it does with Georgia Nicolson, then I hate it.

    Woooow! It's far better than I first anticipated!I was so feeling in love with this book, hard.Let's jump onto the next book! :DNikki is a fun and interesting character while Michael is charming. She also has a cool best friend, Melinda. But what nuked me the most which almost made me over hysteric in the last pages was her meeting with Rhys! He is the same age as Nikki and already has a responsibility as a king in the Faery Realm. But their meeting was downright hilarious yet thrilling at the same time. You could say I was falling in love at the first sight (or maybe 'read'? lol) for Rhys <33 hahaha

    Plot: 4 StarsDemon Princess had a very fresh take on demons. I liked that they weren't necessarily bad or evil like most books. The world-building was also top notch, and I hope we'll get to see more of it, like the faery realm, in the next book. Rowen also did a very good job weaving the supernatural adventure into Nikki's every day life that included school and dances.Pace: 3.5 StarsThe story took a tad bit too long to get to the action at the end. There was a little too much build up to the end conflict and resolution. I felt like it took the main character just a bit too long to figure everything out. But other than that, the story flowed really well and kept me engaged the entire time.Characters: 4 StarsI felt that the author really captured the essence of the every day teenager without all of the angst you find all too often in young adult books. All of the characters, no matter how big or small their parts, were well-rounded, multi-dimensional characters. No one seemed flat. Even Nikki's best friend was not the shallow, popular girl she seemed.Cover: 3 StarsI'm not the biggest fan of covers that cut off the cover model's face. I feel like the crown could've been smaller so that the model's whole face could be included. The font and choices fit the story well.Overall: 3.5 StarsDisclosure: I bought this book for my own enjoyment.

    I'll admit that i do judge a book by its cover. So, when i saw this book i immediatley thought 'okay, just another cliche teen book'. Then my friend who works at the library said 'awww you gotta read it! It's so cute!' So i decided to give it a chance. Surpirsingly, i loved it! Sure it did use a bit of teen slang like 'totally, seriously, i mean...' and her demon transformation is a bit cliche too.The main character i loved in this book was MICHAEL! i'll admit that i got a character crush....haha. Sure the ending was a little predictable. I mean, come on Elizabeth? I found it obvious as soon as she kept urging and urging Nikki to drink the effin' potion! When i discussed this with my friend, though, she said she had no idea until Nikki figured it out! Maybe i'm just too good at pinpointing foreshadowing. I was kinda hoping that she would rule the Shadowlands, but then again this is better. This way she gets to go to school. But then the ending reveals that the Fairy King had transferred to her school! I really really hope she doesn't leave Michael for Rhys!!!!

    Leuk en af en toe grappig boek. Duidelijk voor wat jonger publiek maar af en toe vind ik het heerlijk om even makkelijk weg te lezen bij zoiets. Verhaal is goed en ga zeker deel 2 van deze serie lezen.

    This book lagged a bit in the middle but then Nikki and Michael go back to the underworld and it picked up again. The love story is a bit of a bore but otherwise it's a good story.

    All Nikki Donovan wants to do after her mother’s fourth marriage and subsequent move is fit into her new home. So, it’s almost too good to be true when she becomes best friends with Melinda, the most popular girl in school. Now, Nikki is the worthiest member of Melinda’s “Royal Party” entourage and can benefit from the perks of being popular, particularly in the form of hot boyfriends. But all that social perfection is threatened when she finds out that she is a half-human, half-demon princess, and heir to the throne of the Shadowlands. That’s a lot of weight to absorb, if Nikki can even believe what Michael, her long-lost father’s messenger, tells her. According to Michael, her father, the demon King of the Shadowlands, is dying and wants Nikki to assume the throne upon his death, as is her right. There’s only one way to escape this responsibility, but this seemingly simple decision is complicated by her forbidden feelings for Michael. Add in a deadly plot brewing in the Shadowlands and strange half-demon powers, and this might be more than plain old Nikki can handle. It might just be a good thing this princess is half-demon.Reign or Shine starts out as a snippet from an unexpected social climber’s life, but the story quickly gains momentum with the introduction of supernatural elements. Nikki is undoubtedly a realistic and likable character; she struggles to come to terms with the knowledge that she isn’t entirely human, and even if she is somewhat shallow, she has a good and caring heard, as evidenced by her valid friendship with popular Melinda and her protectiveness of her mother. Another plus was the development of the minor characters, which I enjoyed reading about very much. There were only a couple of characters that escaped this trend by being too evil or too perfect, but as a whole, the cast was very believable. The plot is fun and exciting, with the unpredictability of Nikki’s half demon nature, the king’s mysterious ailment, and especially Nikki and Michael’s forbidden romance. For a debut young adult novel, I am quite impressed that such as lighthearted and entertaining read as Reign or Shine is could be so enjoyable for me, even if I was generally one step ahead of the plot. The greatest part of this is that there’s so much room for the story to grow, character-wise and with plot surprises, in a sequel. There’s nothing particularly meaningful about this novel, but it is still a great read for a boring day.Reign or Shine will be enjoyed by those who also liked Need by Carrie Jones, Repossessed by A.M. Jenkins, and Devilish by Maureen Johnson. I look forward to catching the continuation of this story in its sequel Reign Check.reposted from

    The concept is interesting if not original. A princess, wow, every girl (okay, in the interests of...well, everyone) almost every girl dreams about being a princess though I'm pretty sure none (okay, fine, almost none) of them dream about having "Demon" attached to the princess tag. Nikki didn't either. In fact, as far as she was concerned, her father was a player who played her mother and left her with nothing except a baby and some pretty awesome memories she is unable to forget in spite of her frequent awry attempts at marital bliss. (I will take this point to note that Nikki's mom has a horrible taste in men - first a demon and now a wife beater? Come on, woman!) Anyway, as I was saying before I went off on one of my tangents, the concept - the idea - of the book is interesting. The characters are not wholly developed but since this is the first in a series, I have hopes that their potential will by fully realized in the later installments. The plot is not original and the resolution is way too neat. I needed the romance to be drawn out - not pages mind but just enough to make it seem realistic - and it wasn't and that made me question the sincerity of the feelings (Nikki definitely inherited her mother's tastes in men). What peeved me off was that Rowen went down the typical plot path when discrediting the guy that the heroine had only pages before been lusting after. For once I wish the author would take a creative approach to excusing the heroine's fickleness. Feelings change - it would be nice if, at least once in a while, the heroine would own up to that. Anyway, the book is entertaining but it lacks a certain depth - a complexity - that would move it from being a carefully manufactured Disney product to a book that is worth reading because it offers something new and original in the genre.

    For the longest time I was rather unsure about books with supernatural elements, I've only dipped my toes in from time to time. But I'm pretty sure I'm becoming a real fan finally. I think Demon Princess along with a few other books have convinced me it might be time to drop that fear of mine. Seriously, I never thought I would love reading about demons so much!If I'm being honest, I kind of feared that Nikki might come off as a ditz and sort of annoy me, but she was nothing like that! She was a really sweet, caring, and a funny character, and oh she makes a kick ass Darkling (half demon)! I adored her and am so happy that this is the beginning of the series. I can't wait to hear more from Nikki. And speaking of characters, did I ever love Michael the messenger sent from the Shadowlands to bring Nikki to her father, the Demon King. He was so so so so so sweet, I loved this boy! I wished I could reach into the book and give him a hug, even though he doesn't want to be touched! I also really liked Nikki's parents, her mother the romance novel writer, who's been married 4 times trying to find the love that was lost when Nikki's father vanished and Nikki's father the Demon King, who would expect a Demon King to be so sweet, well he is, really!I sort of figured out all the twists and turns just a little before Nikki and it was a lot of fun seeing it all play out and now I'm having fun thinking of all the things that could happen in the next book in beyond. Thankfully our wait isn't very long, it looks like Book 2: Reign Check is coming on in Spring of 2010!

    I just finished this book and could NOT STOP SMILING!!! It just made me so happy inside!! This book was happy, sarcastic, suspenseful, and so much else!! It made me want to read the next one IMMEDIATELY!! I cannot wait till June to read the next one, but anyways, this book follows recently-turned sixteen Nikki Donovan. She thinks she just this ordinary teenager until the surprisingly sexy Michael turns up telling her that not only is her father alive and wants to see her, but is also a demon. A demon king to be exact. And that, of course, makes her a demon princess, but also a Darkling, which is a half-demon, and she's the first one in over a millennium. Add the fact that her father is dying and since she's his only heir wants her to be queen of the Shadowland, well, you can guess that she doesn't really believe him (or want the job) right away. After a trip to the Shadowland and an assassin trying to kill her, and Nikki just might start to like her dad a bit more. But then again, she starts to like Michael a LOT more as well, which just so happens to be forbidden. Michael is a Shadow, a servant to the demon's like herself, and her father seems stuck in the old ways, even though he broke the rule about having human-demon relationships when he got Nikki's mother pregnant!! Nikki is just trying to survive high school and a new step-father, but of course it wouldn't be that simple!! I LOVED this book and cannot WAIT to read the sequel!!!!

    When I got this book, admittedly, I was excited to read it. I'd read the synopsis on Goodreads, and I was thinking how great of a book it was going to be. And, unsurprisingly, it was. The aspect of the story wasn't anything new--I've read tons of demon-related books this past year, but I have to say that this was one that I rank in the 'best' list. I liked Nikki; she was funny, and she thought logically. She wasn't irrational (cough; cough, Bella Swan), and her feeling were relatable and believable. Michael was interesting: not your normal arrogant a**hole that seems to take the lead in a lot of popular YA novels. And the other characters were well developed. I did figure out what was going on pretty easily (with Nikki's dad and aunt), so I wasn't surprised with the ending. But everything played out nicely, and I give props to the author, for having witty dialog and great writing skills.The cover is a little flashy--so bright I feel kind of dizzy just looking at it, and it could have been a better representation of the book itself (not just Nikki). If you like books that are quick, easy to understand, and include: demons, cute boys & mystery, then this is the book for you.

    It was a cute story with a good premise, but that's really about it. Nikki is a regular 16 year old girl who has to pick up and move whenever her mom remarries (She's on hubby #4 now). After stalking her for a couple days, a Shadow named Michael presents himself to her & spills that she is actually a Demon Princess, her father being the Demon King, & that she needs to come back to Shadowland with him in order to meet her father. Even though she was creeped out with him for two days, she finds herself attracted to Michael and eventually relents to meet her mysterious absentee father. Mayhem ensues.The plot wasn't very developed, but it did move along pretty fast which made for better reading but also bigger plot holes. I suppose I just didn't buy her quick devotion to Michael, although I really did like him. The evil witch part was pretty easy to guess early on, but I really think that she should have STUCK with the evilness if that's where she was going...she put her tail between her legs WAY too early.I might read the next one just to see where the story goes, but it's definitely not at the top of my list. I have yet to read Michelle Rowan's adult series, but I can only hope it's better.

    The cover should have tipped me off. Way too cutesy.This book was definitely a quick, light read and nothing more. The pace was set at lightening speed; one second the slightly-creepy-yet-incredibly-hot boy is staring at the perfectly-normal-yet-maybe-not girl, and the next they're in another dimension, complete with big scary castles and horned monsters. The whole demon premise could have been taken to a dark place, but instead it's basically the Disney version of the Underworld.Nikki is a likable heroine and Michael is slightly adorable, but I never quite got attached to them or their feelings for each other. The writing is just sort of lackluster and the language a little too juvenile. I found myself more interested in the secondary characters. Specifically Melinda and Rhys, who both possess a nice air of mystery.The novel felt like it merely grazed the surface of the story and held back from plunging in. Everything begins and ends pretty predictably. However, it does have a certain sweet and silly chick-lit-y vibe that kept me amused and it left enough loose ends to possibly persuade me in checking out the next one.

    A demon Princess? This is something we don't hear of everyday. So when a mysterious, but cute, guys begins following Nikki around every where, she gets annoyed. So when she confronts him, she's hoping for an "I'm sorry." Not a "You're the Demon Princess and you're in danger." Thus begins this in thrilling tale of Nikki and her new found news, not to mention her powers. I am happy to report that I enjoyed this novel a lot. It's a great beginning to a series I think many will enjoy reading. It begins with a creepy guy starring at Nikki , and then takes us on a roller coaster adventure. Nikki was a great main character. She was funny and likable and just great. But she was also independent and strong and I liked that a lot. The other characters were great too. All the characters were nicely developed. The plot was full of twists and turns and new things kept popping up everywhere, but that was part of the great read. It had a nice flow to it, not to fast or too slow. I also loved the romance aspect of this novel!

    Cute new YA series I picked up based on the blurb by Richelle Mead. It features Nikki, a teenage girl at a new school, who finds out a few days after her 16th birthday that her estranged father is a demon (actually, KING of the demons of Shadowland) and that she is a Princess and a Darkling, or half-human, half-demon. Oh, and she might become Queen of the Shadowland if things go badly - which would mean she'd be trapped there forever in the castle. There's also a super cute emissary from the Shadowland sent to protect her and escort her back and forth between the realms. I found Nikki's character to be believable for the age intended and strong. She rescues herself once she comes into her own power, so no damsel-in-distress thing going on here. This is somehow more lighthearted than a series like Vampire Academy or Twilight - more humor, and has the teensiest bit more of a chick-lit tone to it than a straight paranormal series.Looking forward to the next one. :)

    This was a really fun story to read. And, i am also glad that i have the next book ready to read next on my shelf. I loved the characters and the love triangle. I'm very happy with the ending although, the little chat between Nikki and Mel was very intriguing and left me wanting to know more about the possibility of her being a demon hunter??? I especially loved Mel's character and hope that she is in the sequel some more. Overall great book, quick read, and great characters.

    I wasn’t planning to read it, but all the books I wanted to read aren’t available yet, so I give this book a try. Glad, I did, it was fun. Not really a literary masterpiece (I never dig these kinds of books anyways) but it was great, witty and light book; the kind of a book you like to read ‘cos you wanted to be entertained, and that is what this book did – it entertained me to the last page. I like it!

    Wow. What a ride.I'm so glad I won this title from the first reads program - it was just what I needed. It seems like with all of the vampire books out there (and now angels and werewolves), no one was really examining the demon aspect of fiction. But this book is a refreshing oasis in a desert of badly written young adult mythological fiction. I really can't wait until the next book comes out next spring!

    quick synopsis in case you don't wanna read the whole review:The story is mildly enjoyable if you can get past the terrible writing style and a totally bland narrator/protagonist. The worldbuilding has some interesting ideas - demons, unicorns, faeries, dragons, Shadows, etc - but pretty poor execution. Overall, it's inconsistent in tone and pacing and lacking in any sophisticated themes or ideas. If I had to pick out the themes, it would be resistance against authority, old-fashioned hierarchies and forbidden love. Pretty basic ideas that aren't dealt with in an original, intelligent or sophisticated way. If you're 14 or younger I'm sure you'll enjoy it just fine.I remember reading this book when I was about 13/14 and I loved it back then. I really liked the romance, I thought the plot was compelling, I liked the worldbuilding..As an 18-year-old reader things are VERY different (I have no idea why but school finished and I had the random craving to re-read it). This book is soooo poorly written, I can't believe I managed to ever see past that. The writing style is the most repetitive I've ever seen - I lost count of how many times Nikki complained about how she "had to" do something. It doesn't work as a theme, it just makes her seem unlikeable and whiny and with no sense of responsibility. The whole 'variation in sentence length' with one-sentence paragraphs for dramatic emphasis is overused to the point where it's slightly comical, and a lot of the time it's used in the wrong places. While reading, I kept wondering if it had even been passed through an editor, because on each page there were at least 2 paragraphs that could have been scrapped altogether, or at the very least drastically cut down. The unravelling of the plot is seriously dumbed down - like, the 'plot twist' had clues dotted all through the story but when it's finally 'revealed' Nikki takes pages and pages to reflect and think about it and try to figure it out when to us it's so plain and obvious, and as a reader you can't help frustratedly thinking "god, get there faster!!"On a kind of positive note, I didn't mind the development of the romance. Sure, maybe a little unrealistic that she just decided to change her mind on this creepy stalker guy just because he was cute, but I didn't have huge problems with it. I thought they were pretty cute together, and Michael as a character was just way more interesting than Chris.My main problem with their relationship as a whole was that Michael had such shitttyyyy self esteem, and Nikki didn't really seem to mind - she thought it was totally OK and healthy to date a guy that basically hates himself and would do anything for you but nothing for himself. Like, by the end of the book they've risked their lives for each other and Michael's still saying "I'm nothing to you, I can't imagine why you'd like me etc". It's not an endearing character trait. It just makes him seem like a weak bitch. Sure, he's brave and selfless and gentle and whatever, but wouldn't a so-called Strong Female Character like Nikki have enough respect for herself that she'd want to date someone who ALSO has respect for HIMself? Making your characters self-loathing does not make them compelling. I'd rather read a character that stands up for themselves and has a strong sense of self.Nikki as a protagonist is pretty weak in general. I mean I like that she's spunky and brave and stands up for herself, but her internal monologue can be incredibly whiny and repetitive, which gets grating after a while, and as a character she's just so underdeveloped and cliched - we're not really given any reason to see her as interesting or unique. She's just dumped with the old recycled storyline of "we move around a lot so I have no friends." seen it, read it a million times, it's not anymore interesting this time around.Just one more thing (SPOILER) that sat with me weirdly at the end of the story - Chris is an attempted rapist. And all Nikki says is "I can't believe it, he attacked me, I thought he was so nice." For one thing, she's not traumatised. For another thing, when her mother (who supposedly she tells everything to because they're super close) asks how the date went, she just says "it didn't work out." *Chris is a popular guy who dates a lot of girls and you have just found out that he is capable of rape and could very well go on to not only attempt it again, but get away with it, and you're not going to report him or tell anyone??!!?!??!* NOT COOL. Nikki is supposedly a Strong Female Character, she was strong enough to kick Chris's ass - but not strong enough to actually report him? Which could save lives?? Honestly I think this was just a flaw in pacing and tone in general - the book seems to think that attempted rape is not that dark of a theme/concept so it'll totally fit in with a cheesy story about demons directed at young teenage girls and we don't really have to deal with it in a serious way. Either don't include that storyline at all, or adjust the entire rest of the book to match the dark tone.

    I gave up 3 chapters in. The worldbuilding felt wrong, the characters dull, and the writing style didn't work for me. While I was reading I kept thinking Is it real? Can this be so bad?
