Allia is sent by her goddess sisters to win the heart of the Demon Lord and make him her slave. But Allia soon discovers that the Demon Lord's heart is not easily given, and that in order to win it, she must sacrifice her own.
Ok, I suppose I should actually say something about The Demon Lord to give new readers an idea of what to expect. Set in an almost dystopian world that could be our future if technology goes to hell, it's an almost Wild West setting but with the addition of demons and goddesses! I know it sounds preposterous but it's a fantasy world that's painted dark and gritty with paranormal elements and just pulls you in.
In this story we meet Allia, a goddess, who is sent to charm The Demon Lord but finds herself equally captivated by him. It's a romance that should be forbidden and yet the couple cannot deny the intensity of their feelings and there's the rub! What Allia feels is love but The Demon Lord struggles to understand that emotion as all he has ever understood is possession. He's used to hunting, but now he's found Allia, he believes his hunt is over. Poor Allia is torn and pulled in separate directions but one thing she can never escape is her true feelings.
Ms Altenburg has an amazing imagination and the writing style is so easy to follow. These are characters with layers and it's an almost nomadic world full of danger they live in. In this short story the romance takes centre stage but the world building in these books is just outstanding. Would I recommend? Most definitely and can I just say the artwork on these covers is fantastic! May cannot come soon enough for me!
The Demon Lord is an e-book and is $0.99 at Amazon and B & N
