Demon Kissed by H.M. Ward review

Demon Kissed by H.M. Ward (Demon Kissed #1)

free read

Synopsis from Goodreads
The 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.

I'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 problem. Quite generic and not very deep.

Collin however is addictive like very good dark chocolate. He is delicious. The ultimate misunderstood bad boy. And we love that.

The mythology is great, and I just wish the author explored it much deeper, both the good and the dark sides. it's all very intense and angsty, and very much the epitome of YA, so I can see why it's so popular.

I was very intrigued and I will continue reading to see where the plot goes.

Overall, a very entertaining read. Thumbs up for Holly Ward!

Очень интересная молодёжная трава. Определённо придётся по вкуса любителям Дома Ночи, Лорен Кейт, Бекки Фитцпатрик и Рэйчел Кейн.

В основном, я могу провести параллель между Зои Редбёрд из Дома Ночи и Айви. Они не очень глубоки и полны ангста.

И большинство персонажей в книге нарисованы довольно шаблонно. Однако мифология интересная, и хотелось бы чтобы автор покопалась и разработала её поглубже - обе её стороны, и светлую и тёмную. Коллин, к тому же, получился просто конфетка, такой типичный плохиш с трагическим прошлым. Да-да, мы таких любим!

Определённо, буду читать продолжение. Мне интересно куда эту серию заведёт автор.

Awesome review! :)

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
