Book Review: King of the Damned by Juliana Stone

Title: King of the Damned
Author: Juliana Stone
Source: Edelweiss
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date : November 27, 2012
Reviewer: Jasmyn

With darkness all around him, the League of Guardians is his only means of redemption . . .
Azaiel, the Fallen, has been given a second chance to atone for the sins of his past. With demons gathering and threatening the League, he must find out if their circle has been breached. What he doesn’t foresee is a woman—a fierce warrior—who will turn his world upside down and awaken his tortured soul.
Rowan James is a powerful witch out to avenge the death of her beloved grandmother, but she needs an ally. Will she be able to trust a man with secrets as dark as the sorrow in his eyes? Loving Rowan means risking salvation and yet Azaiel cannot ignore the hunger burning hot between them—his one last chance at happiness. With danger all around them, will these two desperate souls finally find love in each other . . .or be forever damned?

Rowan, a very powerful witch, is devastated by her grandmother's gruesome murder.  But when she learns that a powerful demon has marked her as her own, she has no choice but to trust the strange variety of paranormals that show up to help protect her.  One of which is Azaiel, known as the Fallen.  Rowan comes up with quite the daring plan (I do love her spunkiness) to rid the world of the demon once and for all.

Rowan is one tough chick, sometimes a little too tough.  I really wanted to see a softer side to her more often.  A little emotion, other than anger, is a good thing.  Azaiel sounds amazingly hot, but was a bit too brooding and self-pitying for me to like.  He redeems himself by throwing himself into harms way time and time again to save the little witch and her friends and family.

King of the Damned was quite the page turner.  The action seemed to stop just long enough for me to catch my breath before it took off again.  The chemistry between Rowan and Azaiel was electric, I could almost see the sparks flying when they were together.  A great read for lovers of paranormal with plenty of hot romance spread around.  With secondary characters that you want to learn more about, I'll be looking forward to the next in the League of Guardians.
