From the Cover:
What’s a girl to do when she discovers her husband, who happens to be the Master Vampire for the New England Region, has been lying to her for, oh, say a hundred and eighty years?
Well, it all depends. If she’s accidentally released forty demons from some creepy old book, unintentionally announced the existence of vampires on The Internet, kidnapped a werewolf, enraged a lovesick vampire by stealing his approved mate, and attracted the attention of The High Commander for The Vampire Federation, not to mention gotten stoned and mastered the forbidden art of demon calling, she might be willing to call it even.
Or, she might plead her case at an Inquisition and hope like all hell, she isn’t staked before sunrise. Eh, a slightly busier night than usual, but nothing Eva Prim can’t handle.
Chryssie Papadopoulos isn't your average vampire, no way. That would be boring, and Chryssie is anything but boring.... klutzy maybe, but definitely NOT boring or selfish, or thoughtless. Well, maybe a little bit selfish, but isn't everyone? So what if she happens to be married to the most powerful vampire, and the master at that, in the region? Does she take advantage of her position? Does she try to force people to like her? (I mean besides a couple of times, before she knew better.) Chryssie just wants to be liked for who she is.
When Stefan, her husband (I did say she was married to the most powerful vampire in the region and the master) gives her a laptop as a gift (I'm hoping it was a Macbook, I have a thing for Macbooks), she does what most people (and vampires) in her position would. She starts a blog, Eva Prim Writes, and makes TONS of new friends. Just what she wanted!! But, along with her friends, a whole lot of new trouble starts brewing (and I mean a lot). I did say she was a bit of a klutz, especially in her personal life (and in the lives of those around her.)
The Demon Mistress by Jordan K. Rose is a great fun read. What starts out, for Eva, as a way to occupy her time, relieve her tedium, and of course, gain new friends all who want information on the vampire way of life, turns into a mad dash. Eva, as it turns out, is her own worst enemy. She can't keep herself (and those around her) out of trouble. Her simple blogs turns out to be much more.
Ms. Rose not only creates this wildly wonderful person known as Chryssie Papadopoulos (Eva Prim), but she does it in the most entertaining way. Chryssie sparks feeling of kinship, I'd actually like to blog with her, she so much fun. I was laughing, tearing up, wanting to smack Stefan, and Cletus, hell, I wanted to smack Margaritaman (he should have known better than to get in a car with a hungry vampire, you know, from the blog). And, the names these people blog with, I just don't know.... but it sure sounds like fun.
If you're looking for a fun, entertaining, somewhat endearing read, you'll want to try The Demon Mistress by Jordan K. Rose. I guarantee, lots of fun to be had, cute characters, domineering alpha male vampires, and werewolves galore. It's not your usual vampire read and you're going to love every minute of it. I haven't read something this fun in a while, sexy.. yes, scary.. yes, chiller-thriller.. all the time. But a humorous read? This has been one of the best. I fell in love, just a little, with Eva Prim.
Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
