After being drained of nearly all the blood in her body, novice witch, Portia Mullins, wakes up to find that her warlock boyfriend, Vance Mangum, has fled in search of his demon father. Determined t keep him from facing the evil alone Portia follows after hi, unknowingly setting herself on the path of a new adventure that will taker he, Vance, and their coven over international borders, into a foreign place where they will discover that the black magic which awaits them is far worse than they ever imagines. Portia finds herself tangles up in a web of lies and deceit in another’s quest for demonic power in the excitingly romantic second paranormal novel in the Of Witches and Warlocks series, The Demon Kiss.
The Demon Kiss is the second book in the Of Witches and Warlocks series by Lacey Weatherford. This book has the perfect balance of love, action, determination and resilience.
After waking from a horrific ordeal, Portia finds that the love of her life is gone. This infuriates her and makes her determined to find Vance and give him a piece of her mind. He has ran off to find his demonic father and take care of him once and for all. Portia is outraged that Vance has left her behind and is worried that he won’t come back to her. So she decides to go find him along with her two best friends promising to call in the coven when she finds him.
This trip ends up being more of a black ops mission; to find Vance’s father, help save his victims and kill him whilst not getting killed themselves. This is a lot more tricky that what they think as Vance’s father has unlimited power and resources.
I loved the character development in this book. Portia shows just how resilient and strong she is in this story. Not only has she to deal with her every advancing powers and recovering from being drained of blood but also has a blood lusting boyfriend to deal with. I also loved how much closer Portia and Vance became in this book if that’s even possible. It seems as if their love is even more unbreakable.
I had a strange feeling of foreshadowing in this book but not from anything that Lacey had written. I had the feeling that something bad was going to happen as soon as I started reading one of the chapters and it ended up happening how I thought it would but at the same time I was surprise that it happened. The ending left me with the mother of all cliffhangers but at the same time it explains the nightmare that Vance went through in The Trouble With Spells.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed The Demon Kiss and can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Blood of the Witch. Hopefully some more answers will be made available in the next book.
