Conquered, the Demon King has been banished to Abyss—but he is far from dead. A greater danger awaits Ginny Jones and the Demonslayers in this spellbinding, highly sensual paranormal romance...

Stand By Me

The women of Lemuria are still in chains. The daughter of an enslaved warrior, brutally attacked by a vicious guard, Selyn has survived—barely. Beaten and terrified, she must overcome her fear and trust her life to the only man who can help her: Dawson Buck, one from Earth who has crossed through the portal, a gifted healer. His skills and knowledge renew her body and strengthen her spirit—and awaken a compelling passion she has never known. But she cannot yield...

Selyn seeks revenge for herself and her mother and all the Forgotten Ones who toil in secret. If Dawson helps her, his own life may be forfeit. And for Selyn, true love does not ask such sacrifices...

The third in the Demonslayers series, Starfire gave us a great story of love, redemption and revenge.

Selyn is one of the Forgotten Ones, a whole class of female warriors who were the reason why the Lemurians were so successful in wars past. Now, they are tossed aside and left to become miners… Essentially forgotten by the Lemurians who consider themselves “upper class”. However, the Forgotten Ones haven’t forgotten, nor have they forgiven.

Dawson is a really cool man who brings his compassion and knowledge of life and healing to his story of true love. He’s a good man, with a good heart. He’s also Selyn’s chance at bringing the Forgotten Ones out of their bonds of slavery and true love and the freedom that it brings.

I really liked the story between these two, especially as Selyn overcomes her obstacles and learns to love while learning to trust a man. I felt that this was a great way to bring all the players to the front.

It made me think about how I’d feel if I were forgotten, abandoned to a life of misery and servitude. I knew I wouldn’t like it one bit and I was angered for their sake. I wanted to go right up to Alton’s father and strangle him slowly and mercilessly for his ineptitude as a leader and as a man.

Now, it was a bit slow in certain areas, but I plunged right on, and saw the characters develop. I also got to read about them kicking ass and taking names, which is always a good thing, as I do so love a kick-ass heroine (and hero!)!

All in all, I felt that the story, while slow at times, was strong and the most emotional of all the Demonslayers books.

I thank Ms. Douglas for this great read and I hope to see these wonderful characters in the future (HINT HINT, KATE).

  • Thank you so much for the review–much appreciated, and I’m glad you liked the story. Drop me a note when you get a chance and tell me where you felt it was slow–I want to know what to fix in the future. 🙂

    CrystalFire will be out in the fall–Taron is the lead in that one, and Willow is the heroine, but I’m not tellin’ how that happens!
