A Wicked Curse… A Deadly Secret… An Approaching Evil… A Forbidden Love…

officialsynopSome girls share clothes. Some girls share a bedroom. Seventeen-year-old Liora Greyson has to share, too. Only she shares her body—with a demon.

Liora just wants to survive her senior year with her dark secret intact. But the walls she’s built to keep people away come tumbling down once she meets the sexy and mysterious Kieron, and he lights her world on fire. She can’t let him know she transforms into a demon named “Lucky” at nightfall—a demon with an entirely separate personality who passes out Torment, Justice, and Revenge like Halloween candy.

Turns out Kieron is the one who should be afraid once Lucky discovers his true identity and motivations. Liora wants to love him, but Lucky thinks he’s public enemy #1.

Fighting your demons is one thing. Having one that fights back, messes with your guy, and leaves you with nasty hangovers can be pure hell.

Being bad has never been so good…


She’s Liora Greyson by day, Lucky the Demon by night. When Liora was in her sapie/human form, all she really just wanted was to be left alone. She didn’t want to draw attention to herself. But then she met Kieron Ambrose and she suddenly saw herself in a new light. Keiron and Liora both had dark secrets of their own. And she didn’t want Lucky to have anything to do with them.


Despite sharing the same body, Liora hated the demon inside her. Actually she hated all the demons because of what they did to her half incubus friend, Bones. She really hated Lucky and didn’t want her in her life.

Lucky, the demi-demon by night had no choice but to wait and be awaken from dusk til dawn so she could do whatever she needed to do: hunt and slay demons, torment humans and bring justice to those who deserve it. Although she wanted to do all these in her own little time, she didn’t have a choice but wait until Liora slept. This was caused by a spell cast by monsters that split her soul in two.

Now they both met Kieron and all hell broke loose. Literally. Both girls got interested in him, and vice versa. But how would Liora react once she learned that Kieron was the kind of guy she wanted to stay away from?

This was a great Halloween read, I enjoyed every minute of it! The plot was amazingly unique – imagine sharing the same body with a demon. Ugh! Actually, I pity the body that inhabits this two girls, because she gets used 24/7. No rest, no sleep, no time to hibernate! Plus the guys were to-die for. I think both Bones and Kieron were cute and loveable and sooo sexy. I don’t care whether the other one had dark secrets or the other one was troublesome – they’re both sexy as hell and I liked it!

Penelope King is a great author, I have no more words to say. I don’t know how she had managed to create a mystifying fantasy that made a 30+ year old (me) swoon and giggle like a teenager. Yep, this is geared for the Young Adults, so what does a mom like me doing, reading Demonblood? Well, my answer is simple: I know how to appreciate a good read and Ms King’s book is definitely worth-reading.
