Review & ARC Giveaway: Demon Marked by Anna J. Evans

Coming from Signet Eclipse on January 4 is Anna J. Evans’ Demon Marked. Want to win a copy? Read on… 

PLOT:  Emma Quinn satisfies her demonic cravings by feeding on human life force, and keeps her conscience clean by preying only upon those who deserve it. But when Emma overindulges one night, she’s in trouble with her victim’s gang—or she will be…if they find his body. She turns to mob lawyer Andre Conti, an arrogant womanizer. He’s also a man who doesn’t believe in her powers, but who will awaken sensual cravings Emma wasn’t sure she possessed…

THE AUTHOR: Anna J. Evans is a veteran author with multiple titles published by Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, and NAL. Demon Marked is the second in the Marked series, following Shadow Marked earlier this year.

MY THOUGHTS: This is a fun, fast read, a paranormal romance set in an alternative version of New York that has been overrun with demons. Other than the invisible demons inside Emma, who need to be fed in a way that makes her an emotional vampire of sorts, the demons actually are pretty benign. There’s a nice bit of snarky humor, although sometimes it doesn’t quite jibe with the seriousness of the events taking place. My biggest quibble was the age difference of the H/H–she’s barely 20 and he’s in his thirties. (Hey, did a guy write this?) But Emma’s no ordinary 20-year-old, and Evans makes it work. The romance is sexy and integral to the story.

THE GIVEAWAY: I’m giving away an ARC of Demon Marked. Please note the ARC doesn’t have the final cover shown here but a plain cover with no illustration. As always, extra entry for comments, blog followers, followers on Twitter @Suzanne_Johnson, and an extra for Tweeting (or Retweeting) the contest. Drawing will take place on Friday, New Year’s Eve.

  1. The age difference sounds mild compared to some girl/vampire (or other old, old creatures) relationships, though that’s usually “cured” by the ancient guy looking about 20-something. Or I guess in Twilight, 17.

  2. Sometimes I can get pretty ooked out at big age differences, too; unless there is alot of life experience kind of stuff there. And the difference between 30 and forty isn’t as significant as the difference between 20 and 30. But hey, my 24 year old pool boy Raoul is just crazy for my 46 year old self, so whatever.

  3. I always like humor in a book. It makes for a fun read 😉
