Demon Kissed (Demon Kissed #1) by H.M. Ward
A Pirate Princess Review
DESCRIPTION: “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.”

REVIEW: 5 STARS–NOT TO BE MISSED!
Demon Kissed = the best book EVER!!!!!!! It is more than a exiting thriller, this book is so good you won’t know how to describe it!!!! When Ivy’s hair was in purple flames that was so good. I felt like I there watching it happen like I was in the book–seeing and feeling it all. It was the most amazing super duper exciting wild book I’ve ever read.
The bad people/ villains in DEMON KISSED are called Valefars. They were humans that had their souls sucked out by demons. They are immortal and super bad. Martis are humans that were given angel blood to help them kill off all the Valefar. Ivy gets into a weird spot because she’s both. That makes everyone want to kill her. She doesn’t know who to trust.
It was a great story that had a fast pace. It was like a thriller, adventure, & romance mix. It’s a good combination. I can relate to Ivy in some ways. She’s like a real person. GO H.M. WARD!!!! U ROCK!!!!!!!! I WANT MY BEDROOM TO BE THEMED DEMON KISSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the first book in the Ivy Taylor/ Demon Kissed series. DEMON KISSED is followed by CURSED, TORN, SATAN’S STONE, and THE 13th PROPHECY (release date March 6, 2012.
