Demon Possession (Shadow Quest – Book 1), Kiersten Fay (Giveaway/Review)
Demon Possession, Kiersten Fay
Book Description (provided): After being enslaved on the spaceship Extarga for most of her life Analia has no memory of her life before, and has lost all knowledge of her people. Her mysterious gift and pointed ears are the only indication that she is different. Analia is alone, and for all she knows, she’s the last of her kind. By chance Analia escapes her captors, and hides herself on the merchant ship Marada, planning to get off at the very next stop.
Unfortunately for her, there is no next stop. The crew is planning a delivery that could take months, and according to a stipulation in the newly signed contract, no one is allowed on or off the ship until the package is delivered.
When Analia is found by the captain of the Marada, she must adapt to her new role on the ship, and try to control her newly awakened desire for the brutal and devastatingly erotic demon.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. The concept really grabbed me on this one, I was excited to see how a woman of unknown origins would fare as a stowaway aboard a spaceship ran by demons. It was a little slow at points, a lot of time spent in the characters minds. You have Analia a woman held captive from a very young age so everything held wonder for her and she had to process all of these things. It was like a child going from 0 to grown in the blink of a voyage. The characters were great they were interesting and added to the story tremendously. I am looking forward to reading about Analia’s sisters who are also lost but I am assuming have not led such a confined life by the way the book ended.
Straight to the Swagger: I would give this series a try. We met the heroes already and they are swoon worthy.
Excerpt: Anya watched Sebastian from the corner of her eye as he went to work cleaning away the blood. He was focused and intent on his task, but couldn’t seem to stop touching her in little ways. Softly brushing her hair, her shoulder, her hip. Was he checking her for further injuries? It seemed more intimate than that. It was almost as if he didn’t even realize he was doing it.
His tenderness with her was astonishing. While he was focused on wiping the blood from her cut, Anya allowed herself to study him closer. He seemed calm now, though his energy was still erratic.
When he had first returned, still resembling the monster, it had terrified her. He’d still been enraged, much more so,it seemed. And not for the first time, she’d thought he might hurt her.
But when his eyes had found hers, he’d visibly relaxed, instantly morphing back into the Bastian she recognized.
With a gentleness contradictory to the man standing before her, he cleaned her wound. By his soft pats and concerned looks, she knew now that he would never hurt her. She felt silly for ever thinking otherwise. He’d shown her nothing but kindness from the beginning.
“You’re not frightened of me anymore?” he asked without averting his gaze from the cut on her cheek.
He was almost completely back to normal now. His horns were returning to their original dark black, and his fangs
had receded. Thinking back to his other form, she couldn’t muster the terror it had inspired in the first place. “No,”
she said simply.
“You make it hard to fear you, Sebastian, when you treat me the way you do.”
“And how’s that then?”
“Like you would never hurt me, no matter how angry you are, or how much you might want to.”
His golden eyes locked on hers with such intensity it stole her breath. “I would never want to hurt you.” Cupping her face, he rubbed his thumb along her unmarked cheek. “I could never hurt you. If anything ever happened to you, I fear I will be trapped on the Edge forever.” Leaning in, he lightly kissed her bruise. “I think of you constantly.” He kissed her forehead. “Always.” Then with the lightest touch, he kissed her lips.
With words so sweet, Anya couldn’t help but lean into him. This wasn’t the demanding kiss from before. This was soft, smooth, tender. This time he allowed her to explore him at her leisure. His lips were soft and warm, molded to hers, and she caressed them.
Her second real kiss ever was turning out to be the most erotic experience of her life. Sebastian was watching her with his liquid gold eyes, filled with restrained lust as he let her place soft kisses on him.
When she darted out her tongue, he dropped his hands to her hips, his body wedging between her legs. The second time she darted her tongue to lick his sweet lips, he opened, his tongue meeting hers.
From deep within him, she heard the rumblings of a satisfied groan. The mere sound stroked her own lust, and she instinctively dug her nails into his shoulders. Liquid pooled between her legs. Bastian’s grip tightened in her hips.
“Let me taste you,” he grated.
