Demon’s Kiss

Demon’s Kiss

When her family was murdered, Clarissa found her life altered. As the new guardian for a very powerful gem that could change the very fate of the Earth and its inhabitants should it be lost, she willingly accepted the responsibilities to keep it safe. A demon named Xon was after the abilities the gem would afford him should he get his hands on it. Azamel protected the world from demon kind. A demon himself, he was appointed judge and if need be, executioner to protect the various races that roamed the Earth. Now he had to hunt Xon and prevent him from obtaining a stone that could give him the edge he would need to rule, but to do this Azamel would have to work with a young wolf who had a chip on her shoulder. Could he succeed in time to save both of them… before it was too late? Or would Clarissa’s mistrust doom them all?Review and Interview: http://selfpublishordiereviews.blogspot.com/2012/09/interview-with-laura-hawks-and-review.html

5.0 out of 5 stars Demon-licious!, October 13, 2012

By Mateo Wolfe –

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Demon’s Kiss is a wonderfully thrilling read. The Guardian of a magic stone is left to protect it after her family is slaughtered. The executioner is a hot demon that tracks and kills errant demon spawn. When the two meet the chemistry is explosive. The sexual tension sets the story of the two preternatural creatures on its edge and it stays there for the entire story. From the “Oh no you don’t dare come on to me” to the “I can’t live without you”, every paragraph build upon the next, leading to a wonderful ending. It’s my hope that there will be more adventures featuring these two memorable character!

From the moment I starting reading the book, I was captivated. The writing was great well written, full of humour, action and love.Flowed and wasn’t choppy like I have found some other books to be. I really couldn’t put it down, and read it until I was done. I really enjoyed it, and can’t wait for more from this authour! It was a good read, and will recommend it to people I know who will like it as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Written, November 17, 2012

By Sundown –

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Have you ever had one of those days when nothing goes right and you just wish you could crawl into bed and wake up and it all was a bad dream? Of course you have! Therefore you can relate to the Guardian. Only, when the Guardian has a bad day it might bring destruction upon Earth.

Very seldom does a book make me feel the emotions of a character. Laura Hawks pulls it off with ease. The Guardian is not unsusceptible to issues of trust, loyalty, passion, or a myriad of other emptions. Laura does such a wonderful job describing the characters as they encounter their emotions that help you relate to them even at this deep level.

Demon’s Kiss will leave you attached to the characters long after the story is finished and anxious for a sequel so that you can learn even more about the friends you have just made.

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

I usually read sci-fi with the emphasis on “sci” but I wanted to test out the new Kindle app on my first smart phone. Downloaded Laura Hawks book, Demon’s Kiss and couldn’t put it down. I look forward to many more from Laura though she didn’t completely drag me away from my sci-fi’s!
Hope there is a sequel soon!
5.0 out of 5 stars Demons Kiss a thrilling book !!, October 26, 2012

By Cloretta M Robinson –

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

I have read alot of books in my years on this earth. A lot of them were good, some even great, But Demon’s Kiss is one of the greatest ones I have read. It kept my interest from start to finish. The plot of the story and the action in it were well written. I wish I had words to tell you how very much I enjoyed reading this book. I hope the author writes more. Her book will keep me intertained for years to come. One can only ask for such books, and such authors. Miss Hawk may your writing make you as happy as it has me. Thank you very much and good writing!!!.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love It Perfect Tension, March 25, 2013

By L. Redd “Movie Maniac” (Florida)

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

I love this book!!! The characters are right up my alley and the tension between the two makes it even better. A young guardian and her elder watcher/trainer must secure a sacred jewel from a demon. The kicker is that her watcher/trainer is a demon as well and his feelings for her are boiling under the surface and he has no idea of what to do with her. One minute, he wants to kill her cause she is a smart butt youngster, however, he feels pity for her and is falling for her during the quest. Love this book Laura Hawks, I want more.

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

From start to finish, I did not stop reading. The characters had me laughing to myself as they battered each other with snide comments then opening their hearts to love while keeping in tune with a Destiny they both have. I am defiantly awaiting to see if a sequel is going to happen. Laura has defiantly caught my attention with this amazing book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ready Set Go.., March 12, 2013

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Ms.Hawks book was a grab you as you open the page. Without giving anything away, the charters are reaching for you to bring you into their world. The heroine kicks her way in and stands her ground demanding that you follow her, and follow you will. I for one am looking forward to the next book to see where Ms. Hawks will take us next.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good first novel, January 28, 2013

By Cayt

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Laura Hawks is a new author, and this is her first book to be published.
If you like paranormal romance, this is a very enjoyable read. The characters interact well, and the store moves, there is nothing that lags in it. As with most first books, there are some things that as Ms. Hawks becomes a more experienced writer, and works with her editor more, will be fixed. But over all, well done for a first book!

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Volume 1) (Paperback)

Laura Hawks has a way with words that make it easy to imagine that you are watching it play out and at times make it seem as if you were one of the characters themselves.

This book was freaking great great characters an awesome plot everything i look for in a book i cannot wait for the sequel to come out as well

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read, January 13, 2013

By sanders.clan (ROUND ROCK, TEXAS, US)

This review is from: Demon’s Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Demon’s Kiss by Laura Hawks has a phenomenal story line with believable characters. You will grow to desire Azamel, the executioner and judge to otherworldly creatures. He is dark, mysterious and sexy. Azamel is turmoil and tenderness rolled in a blinding mixture of emotion. Clarissa, the guardian of the gem stone is sassy and strong. Her werewolf heritage adds an unexpected edge to this tale.
Demon’s Kiss is a highly enjoyable read. You will feel a strong connection to the heroine and sympathize with her struggles.
With that being said, I struggled with other details of the story. I am not one to critique a book on editing, grammar issues. Content is the most important aspect of a story in my option. But…
I did have trouble with the word choice in this book. It is very difficult to read a passionate love scene when words like mammary glands and phalanges are used. These words do not elicited the correct response in the reader. The word appendage is used multiple times throughout the story, as well, in reference to a tender caress. Appendage appears to be much more phallic than a loving stroke to me.
I just found myself skipping sections of the story due to this issue and I am generally able to read just about anything.
Again, the content of this book is a highly enjoyable story as long as you are able to get passed some of the word choices the author has made.

If given the chance to read this story again, I most definitely would. (note: This issue was resolved upon the second edit.)

5 Amazing book with creative and page turning writing like Sherrilyn Kenyon!

By MADLYN GREEN TAYLOR on May 22, 2014

This is an amazing series and can not wait for the 3rd book! If you like Sherrilyn Kenyon you will love Laura Hawks’ writing. Being a teacher and a strong literature background I am a selective reader. Where is book 3 because I can not wait to find out what happens next. It is rich with Native American pantheon with well developed characters that have action, romance, and a healthy dose of lust. Needless to say my Husband and I read the books while on vacation and by chapter 9 we were having hot flashes of our own. The characters are so well developed you can not wait to find out what will occur and what has happened to them. Awesome read!

5 Absolute pleasure to read!

By Mrs Wilma Burger on July 11, 2014

What an absolute delight to read,I enjoyed every page! The story had me riveted and I can’t wait to read the sequel. The author created characters that one can relate to and one feels their struggles as if they were one’s own. Well done Laura! Can’t wait for the next one!!

5 Thoroughly enjoyable read

By Liam Brenton-James on July 11, 2014

Great new talent here! This wondrous tale weaves fantasy with great flare to create an enchanting story. I loved the detail and the parallels drawn between the various challenges the characters had to face and the personal internal turmoil they had to deal with. This all taking place in strange, beautiful and sometimes harsh places filled with magical creatures. The relationship between man and woman is explored with a sensitivity that shows a lot of depth from the author and you can’t help have compassion for each of the characters even when they are at their most volatile. I look forward to reading the sequel and I wish Laura Hawks a very successful career

5 Amazing

Bysuper stunton January 21, 2014

I am not sure I can put into words the emotions this book made me feel! I know I couldn’t put it down. Thank you for an amazing read and something to do while the power was out. This is a must read !!! Can’t wait to release the next book!!!

4 Good Kiss, Demon

ByJessica Markert “Jessa M”on January 5, 2014

This was pretty good.

Clarissa and Mel are a very interesting couple. It takes most of the book for them to come to terms with how they feel about each other and to fight the demon who takes the other half of the stone she’s protecting.
Overall I enjoyed reading it and look forward to the next one.
