From USA Today best-selling author Kiersten Fay comes this sizzling hot tale of a rouge demon mercenary and the Faieara princess who enchants him.
Marik Radkov believed the only thing left from his tortured past were the scars that adorned his body. When he is stranded on a foreign planet and held captive by a beautiful stranger, he is forced to face his past once more.
Years after she was forced to take refuge on the icy planet of Undewla, Nadua has all but lost hope that her people will return for her. When the threat of a native rebellion arises, she is inexplicably recused by a ruthless demon who ignites a desire in her she cannot deny.
As danger draws near, Marik struggles to contain his powerful lust for her while keeping them both alive.
The Demon Slave is the second installment in the best-selling paranormal romance series, Shadow Quest.
Interview with the author:
Q - Tell us a little bit about your Shadow Quest series.
Shadow Quest is a unique mix of genres that incorporates paranormal romance, fantasy, and science fiction romance. My characters are based loosely in mythology with some kick-butt mythical creatures such as demons, witches, and fey-like beings. Since they’re all from different planets, I suppose they’d be considered aliens.
Each book focuses on the relationship of the hero and heroine and the trust they must build with one another. The connection they form is a slow-burn at first, and then turns combustible. I play with the fated mates theme, but the conflict and mistrust keeps things interesting. Ultimately love wins out in the end, if they can survive the journey.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
Each book can be read in any order and the reader can still follow along, but for the full experience, I suggest the following sequence:
The Demon's Possession
The Demon Slave
The Demon's Retribution
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
Romance fans are ravenous, and my Shadow Quest series hits the spot. Readers have told me they have read the books several times over and still enjoy it. It’s a series that draws you in and makes you long for more.
Readers who enjoy action, romance, and alpha males will want to take this epic journey.
Q - What inspired the worlds you created in Shadow Quest, having it take place in space and on different planets?
I’ve always been interested in sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, and mythology. I thought about the kind of romance novels I enjoy reading and what I liked about them: the idea that there could be a supernatural world within our own, veiled from sight.
Then I thought, “What if all these creatures were really from different planets?” After that, the world building came naturally.
