Shadows Fall (The Dems Trilogy, #3) by Devi Mara Review
Shadows Fall: (The Dems Trilogy #3) - Devi Mara

Where it begins. How it ends.
It is the beginning and the ending of everything. Shadows Fall.

Ambassador to the Dems, Aya Berk, has many reasons to resent King Baraz. She has thousands of them. He is a stubborn, hateful man who drags the rest of the universe into his misery. Some may fear him, but she never has and certainly will not start now.

King Baraz has hated humans so long the reason has become secondary. They are devious, plotting, and not to be trusted. He is certain of himself and his place in the universe. That is, until the one person he never expected to see again re-enters his life.

Aya and Baraz are two people separated by time and choices. But when an ancient evil threatens to destroy everything they have built, they are forced to set aside their differences. In the battle to hold on to what they love, can they find some spark of what once was? Or will it all fall into shadow?

 

 

 

Review

While I appreciated how complete the world was by this book in the series, I could never get over the crimes of the hero.

 

He never redeems himself to me and this makes the whole book impossible to enjoy.

No Light (The Dems Trilogy #1) by Devi Mara Review
No Light - Devi Mara

"Name?" he demanded.
"Sarah Mackenzie." She swallowed hard. She would be like the ones who had fallen, her remains something to be cleaned from the floor.
"Age?"
She tried not to tense when he brought his face to her neck and inhaled deeply.
"Twenty-two." The lie tried to stick in her throat.
He pulled back and gave her a dark look. "Try again."
"Eighteen," she whispered, tensing when his lips pulled back from his teeth in a shark smile.
"A lie, Sarah? How nice that you are not as innocent as you look."

The Dems have been held captive since before the world was made. They are the darkness only spoken of in whispers. As much as they are hated and feared, those who guard them are even more so. The pariahs of society, they live apart from the rest of the world in a settlement called Ameritat. That is where The Dems Trilogy begins. An unlikely and dangerous love between a human guard and the most feared of all the Dems. It will be the beginning or the ending of everything.

Sarah Mackenzie was never meant to be a guard, never meant to descend into the bowels of the earth, but The Corridor is where she is sent. With little information and even less training, she is thrust into her position as a Dem handler. She walks a thin line between life and death, as she tries to uphold her family honor and unlock the mystery of the Dem’s captivity. The pursuit of truth will drag her deep into a world of corruption, hatred, and greed and she will have to decide where her loyalties lie. With the humans who have mistreated her or the Dem who could destroy them all.

 

 

 

Review

 

This book made my head hurt. I read the whole thing mad.

 

The book is written so at first we have no idea what is going on. The heroine understands very little and we get to know even less that she does.

 

It is all very foggy. Then we learn more but never really enough. Then, the badass immortal alien prison falls for a dish towel heroine who isn't really but how would we or he know.

 

They take forever to have sex which makes sense given the prison revolt and all but it is still super odd in terms of romantic love.

 

A more fog rolls in but the action picks up.

 

The tone has a lot in common with horror romance but not.

 

So, I was compelled by something to finish the book and was happier by the end but disgruntled feeling that writing played games with me and I never attached to anything.

 

Then, I read the next book in the series which is much clearer.

 

So, I wouldn't recommend this book. I some how got sucked in the vortex of trying to figure it out but didn't enjoy myself and I need joy.

Darkness Blooming (The Dems Trilogy #2) by Devi Mara Review
Darkness Blooming: (The Dems Trilogy #2) - Devi Mara

Rissa was born and raised in the darkest parts of Sinmer. She is single-minded in her focus and willing to do anything to achieve her goals. She can take care of herself and needs no help from anyone. Least of all, Prince Lonan.
It is not up for negotiation.


After centuries of punishment, Lonan has regained his title. He has never had any use for humans. Aside from his brother’s queen, Sarah, he considers them a waste of space. So when a tiny spitfire stalks into his life, he wants nothing to do with her.
Or else.


With failure a very real possibility, King Farran is taking no chances. The Dems’ fight against the Revolution is building and the group seems intent on wiping out a portion of humanity. With her people threatened and danger building every day, Rissa must work with Lonan for the good of all or doom them all to death.
