Book Review: Claimed by a Demon King (Eternal Mates #2) by Felicity Heaton

Claimed by a Demon King
By: Felicity Heaton
Eternal Mates (Book 2)

The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp.

Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since.

As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?

Wow, what a read Claimed by a Demon King was! I’m really impressed with this series so far, it’s got a lot going for it, especially in the paranormal department!

I liked that some of the conflicts that remained at the end of book one are continued in this book and still have no solution, it keeps a reader like me coming back for more and it definitely keeps things interesting. I loved seeing Loren and Olivia again along with Bleu, who I still want to see get his story, especially after losing Sable to Thorne.

Speaking of Sable…

Can I just say that I adore a heroine who can hold her own in a paranormal romance? Sable is proof that a woman can be a total ball buster without losing her femininity. I don't like wimpy, whiny or useless females in romances, but especially not in paranormal romance so Sable is such a plus in this story! She’s one of those women who can and will go toe to toe with any demon, vampire, shifter or witch. She’s fearless without being cocky or reckless, and she was an excellent match for Thorne, the demon king.

Thorne was the biggest surprise though. I expected him to be a borderline murderous, anger fueled demon, you know, like they always are in paranormal romances, but Thorne just... Isn't. It's not to say that he isn't dangerous or hasn't killed, he has, but he has this hidden depth to him that just caught me off guard. He loves his people, he's kind, generous and big hearted but most of all, he adores Sable and would do anything for her. It takes him a while but he comes to see Sable as his equal as well as his mate and while every thing in him wants to hide Sable and keep her safe, he respects her enough to know that she would never forgive him for making her out to be weak and defenseless. I adored Thorne.

Claimed by a Demon King features some familiar faces from Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre series as well as an appearance by Bleu, Loren and Olivia from book 1. There's a great battle scene at the end that I just couldn't get enough of. There's so much going on, so many small scenes involving secondary characters that create a possible build up for future stories.

I am really enjoying this new series by Felicity Heaton, and though Claimed by Demon King is a pretty long book, I never got bored!

My only complaint is: When are Bleu and Vail going to get their books?

  1. Thanks for the great review! Maybe you'll be pleased to hear that Vail gets his book next... I couldn't hold off any longer than that. I really want to write his story.

    1. I'm really excited to hear that Felicity! Vail has interested me from the beginning and I'm so curious to see what you have in store for him!

  2. That sounds really good, thanks for the great review. And I love that cover..whew, he's

  3. This book was really good, even though Thorne is a bit of a Neanderthal he always was very protective and caring of Sable. Sooo looking forward to the next book, Vail's story, intrigued as to that one will pan out!

    1. Hi Julie! Thorne is a bit of a Neanderthal but stopped just short of "unlikable" for me. I loved that he wasn't a predictable demon, he had layers to him and didn't yank Sable out of her element just because she was a woman.

  4. Great review. I love this series - Thorne is my favourite main man so far!!!
    Was delighted to see a cameo from some of my VET faves..... ;)

    Felicity has another winner with this series! <3

    1. I love this series and I can't wait for the next book!

  5. Thanks for review. Still haven't read this series yet, so your review really help me :)
