Summary: (From Goodreads)
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!
I liked this installment of the Demon Princess series even more than the first! Fast, funny and downright romantic I really loved this book and these characters.
Rhys is someone you can't help but like. My biggest complaint about this story was Michael lost some of his charm for me and that was a hard transition when this book is supposed to take place only weeks after the other one ended.
I loved how Michelle Rowan pulled other characters that you thought were normal into the paranormal world, introduced us even deeper into the life and politics of the underworlds, and stayed true to the character of Nikki.
If you liked the first, you will love the second! I can't wait for more in this series!
