BOOK #1 IN THE BESTSELLING DEMON KISSED SERIESThe Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss - he stole her soul and left her within inches of death. By surviving, Ivy is drawn into the conflict between the Martis and the Valefar. The war between these two immortal forces has raged for millennia without distraction. Until now. Ivy is an anomaly--she is the only person who has ever walked away from a demon kiss alive. Her survival gives her unique and deadly abilities. Too powerful to ignore, Ivy is a threat to both armies. These two ancient enemies will stop at nothing to kill the seventeen-year-old. Surviving is nothing new for headstrong Ivy, but her survival has never depended on another person before. This time it does. And if she misplaces her trust, she's dead. To her horror, she starts falling in love at the worst possible time--with the enemy. He appears to be protecting her. But she can't be certain if he is trying to help her, or help himself to her power. For Ivy, trusting the right person is the difference between love and survival, or a deadly demon kiss.92,327 Words, 3rd Edition. Young Adult Paranormal Romance.DEMON KISSED SERIES ORDER: #1.

In this they are Martis who are good, and Valefor who are bad. But then throw in a twist or two and you have a really good story.The character developmen...
Strike one: everyone and their dead sister is gorgeous or handsome. I get bored with books like that.Strike two: Ivy calls fangirls of her friend Collin "lemming hoes." Slut-shaming is never cool.Strike three: "That made me either reckless— or retarded. Probably both (p. 105)."No thank you.
Though the premise was a bit interesting, this is a pretty average YA paranormal romance, in my opinion.I'd been originally intrigued by the mythology, as it seemed a bit different from other YA, but the only parts of it we really began to explore were some of the powers that our protagonist, Ivy, h...
3.5/5I'm glad I had an opportunity to try this series, and I will certainly read more.H.M.Ward has some serious potential, the plot is interesting, if Ivy is somewhat generic and reminds me of Zoey Redbird from House of Night series. The rest of the characters suffer pretty much from the same proble...
