Book Beginnings Friday: Demon Princess: Reign Check by Michelle Rowen


"Act normal, I told myself as I pushed through the doors of Erin Heights High School. Everything's going to be just fine.

That thought lasted exactly thirty seconds. "


Enter the world of Nikki Donovan, a demon princess hell-bent on living a normal teenage life!

Nikki Donovan has had a lot to deal with since learning she was half human, half demon. But things take a darker turn when Rhys, a gorgeous — but potentially dangerous — faery king enrolls at her high school to investigate Nikki’s potential for fulfilling an apocalyptic prophesy. Nikki knows she’d never turn violent, and she certainly couldn’t destroy the world…could she?

Of course, all Nikki really wants is to be reunited with Michael, a Shadow creature whose status as her personal servant is further complicated by their undeniable attraction to each other. Even though the rules of the Shadowlands strictly forbid their romance, Nikki is determined not to let Michael go. But when she is summoned to the Underworld to appear before a demon council, it will take all her courage — and perhaps a bit of demon-level strength — to get herself out again.

That's a great beginning! You learn something's not "normal" about the narrator and a bit of personality is injected into the words, too. And then next sentence: Drama. Sweet. Here's my BB.
