REVIEW: Demon Kissed by H.M. Ward

Title: Demon Kissed
Author: H.M. Ward
Publisher: Laree Bailey Press
Date Published: 4/2011

Publisher Synopsis:
The Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss - he stole her soul and left her within inches of death. By surviving, Ivy is drawn into the conflict between the Martis and the Valefar. The war between these two immortal forces has raged for millennia without distraction. Until now. 

Ivy is an anomaly-she is the only person who has ever walked away from a demon kiss alive. Her survival gives her unique and deadly abilities. Too powerful to ignore, Ivy is a threat to both armies. These two ancient enemies will stop at nothing to kill the seventeen-year-old. 

Surviving is nothing new for headstrong Ivy, but her survival has never depended on another person before. This time it does. And if she misplaces her trust, she's dead. To her horror, she starts falling in love at the worst possible time-with the enemy. He appears to be protecting her. But she can't be certain if he is trying to help her, or help himself to her power. For Ivy, trusting the right person is the difference between love and survival, or a deadly demon kiss.  

My Rating: Solid 4.5*'s

My Review:
This book sucked me in from the start. It really starts off with a bang, and does not stop. You become so drawn into Ivy's character trying to learn what she is and what it all means. She doesn't know who to trust and find herself second guessing herself at every turn, which leads you to remain guessing as well. Just when you think you know what's going all it all gets pulled out from under you. I love books like that! 

Ivy is a great heroine. She may play the damsel in distress at times, but she has some heart and power all of her own. And Jake, oh boy! How can you not LOVE him? He is the kind of male character that leaves the reader swooning. Their chemistry was undeniable and so incredibly believable. You will root for them until the end!

With twists and turns until the very end and a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting to pick up the next book  immediately, H.M. Ward has a smashing start to a YA Paranormal Series. 

Cursed, Book #2, is in my possession. Be on the lookout for that review very soon!
