Demon Princess by Michelle Rowen
"As if trying to fit in at a new school isn't stressful enough, sixteen-year-old Nikki Donovan just found out that her long-lost father is, in fact, the demon king of the Shadowlands—the world that separates and protects us from the Underworld. When she is brought there by the mysterious—and surprisingly cute—messenger Michael, she learns that her father is dying, and he wants her to assume the throne. To complicate matters, a war is brewing between the Shadowlands and the Underworld, her half-demon qualities are manifesting, and her growing feelings for Michael are completely forbidden. Ruling a kingdom, navigating a secret crush, and still making it home by curfew—what's a teenage demon princess to do?" -Goodreads.com
I didn't expect to enjoy this book so much. I thought it sounded very light and fluffy (which it was) with some demons thrown in (which they were) and not a whole lot else (which was wrong). There were serveral aspects to this story that I didn't expect, and I liked them all. There were also a couple comments throughout the book that made me gasp, but which Rowen is saving until book #2 to really address. It's killing me knowing that I have to wait all the way until June (or July, I can't remember) to find out how it all works out!
While the plot was a little predictable, I would still recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick and light read.
