REVIEW YYYY

Mix Demon's and Magician's together then throw in a dose of desire, deceit and mystery and you have the most wicked adventure called the Demon's Covenant.

Sarah Rees Brennan did a marvelous job of continuing on with the adventures from the The Demon's Lexicon. From the very first page you are swept up into it's web of magic and are taken along for the bumpy ride until the very last word and are not disappointed.

In the Demon's Covenant the reluctant quartet of Mae, Jaime, Nick and Alan are brought together again when Jaime becomes mysteriously involved with Gerald the magician. Mae realizes that she is helpless against Gerald's lure over Jaime and calls upon Nick and Alan for help. The Ryves brothers come to the rescue and it becomes painfully apparent that Gerald has powers that are stronger than any of them could imagine. Together they try to figure out how to rescue Jaime from those that are suddenly interested in him and in the meantime Mae is torn between her attraction to broodingly handsome Nick and winsomely kind Alan. Yet, Mae will have to put those feelings aside as she tries to find the answers to help save her brother from the clutches of the obsidian circle before it's too late.

I absolutely adore and am fascinated by the world that Sarah has created with this series. It is original and spell binding for once you begin reading you cannot seem to stop. It's like your pulled into a magical web of intrigue and sultry moments that set your heart to racing. I did not think I could fall in love with the Ryves brothers any deeper and I was happily proven wrong. I was left with a deeper understanding as their character development was strongly presented. I also LOVED the fact that Mae was at the heart of this story and she proved that an ordinary girl could accomplish anything with the power of love on her side.
The Demon's Covenant is a must read for those following the series and if you have not started this series then you must. Simply put, it is brilliant

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
