Review: The Demon Mistress by Jordan K. Rose


18475681
Well, it all depends. If she’s accidentally released forty demons from some creepy old book, unintentionally announced the existence of vampires on The Internet, kidnapped a werewolf, enraged a lovesick vampire by stealing his approved mate, and attracted the attention of The High Commander for The Vampire Federation, not to mention gotten stoned and mastered the forbidden art of demon calling, she might be willing to call it even.
Or, she might plead her case at an Inquisition and hope like all hell, she isn’t staked before sunrise. Eh, a slightly busier night than usual, but nothing Eva Prim can’t handle.
What’s a girl to do when she discovers her husband, who happens to be the Master Vampire for the New England Region, has been lying to her for, oh, say a hundred and eighty years? 



I received this book to give an honest review.

Before I get into the review let me say something about the cover. If I was to judge a book by its cover which I try not to do. I possibly would not pick up the book, the cover doesn't really draw me in, it looks cartoony  in a way. I am so sure that is not a word. 

 Now on to the book funny is what I would describe the book. Chryssie  is married to the Master Vampire of New England which means he is the head honcho in charge of all. Now he seems a bit like he has trust issues with Chryssie which you get some examples but not much of them. So when Chryssie gets a computer she now has access to the outside world! How exicitng right? Well it all goes wrong after the blog posting under her new name Eva! Now Eva/Chryssie are the same person just so you do not get that confused. Chryssie is witty, doesn't take no crap from anyone. She wants to be in on the action of things and not just on the sidelines which I give her props for. When Eva Primm's blog posting gets out of control there is trouble on the front lines of home and the big dogs of the vampire world get called in. Chryssie finds herself in trouble she finds out secrets about her husband which she didn't even know about. She makes new friends which is what she wanted. I do wonder if there is maybe more in this story world, as maybe another book?  

Now what I had a problem with on some parts of the book are as followed.  And thus my rating went down. 
*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERTS*

Not sure if it was the formatting of the book or what but the blog comments from the different fans on Eva's blog. It was kind of confusing to read wot where I had to go back and re-read a sentence to make sure I understood who was staying what.  I hate to have to go back and re-read a sentences just to either understand or make sure I read it right. 
When Chryssie's husband found her and her gang of "friends" and they were all switching bodies I take it? It got kind of confusing as to what was going on, who was who and what not. I could have dealt with maybe just one body switching but when it was going back and forth as it seemed like I lost interest. 

The ending was okay, I guess I would have like the bad guy to have gone back on his word and started a blood bath as he seemed to be building up an army. But maybe the author has other plans for the future books. I do not know.

If you want a book that is not all gory like, though the shifting of vampires is kind of gruesome! If you want to laugh at how the main character takes things into her own hands, you like vampires then this may be the book for you.

With an active imagination and a little encouragement from her husband she sat down and began to write, each night clicking away at the keys with her black Labrador, Dino curled up under the desk. 

A few short years later she’s entered the publishing arena with no plans to ever turn back.
