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?
Claimed by a Demon King is the second book in the Eternal Mates series and can be read as a stand-alone. This story is about Sable a huntress with Archangel (an organization that had been set up to keep order among paranormal species residing in the mortal realm) and Thorne the demon king of the third realm. I was first introduced to Sable and Thorne in Kissed by a Dark Prince and since then I could not wait to read their story. Since their first meeting it was clear that these two were destined to be eternal mates.
Sable is no ordinary female. She is a fighter and a demon huntress. She is strong, independent, caring and rather spirited. She has been selected to lead a command unit into the Third Realm to assist Thorne in his war against the demon king of the fifth realm. Sable’s desire was to become a commander and this mission was the test to prove her capability as such she could not afford to have any distraction. She is aware that she is Thorne’s fated female, however she found it difficult to comprehend in light of the fact that he is a demon and her job is to hunt his kind.
Thorne is a warrior who is determined to protect his kingdom from his enemies. He is rather fierce and arrogant and is a force to contend with. However, when it came to Sable he was very tender, caring and patient. He is willing to wait as long as it took for Sable to accept that they belonged together. Getting Sable to accept him as her fated mate would prove to be the hardest battles he has fought in his 3500 years.
The path to these two getting together was not easy. They were faced with quite a few obstacles one of which came in the form an elf named Bleu. It was quite funny to see the lengths that Bleu and Thorne went to just to impress Sable. Bleu provoked Thorne every opportunity he got. He wanted Sable for himself and would stop at nothing to win her over. After a while though I thought Bleu was being a bit difficult especially since he knew that Sable was not his fated female.
Claimed by a Demon King is a funny, entertaining, fast paced and quite riveting that is filled with lots of action. Felicity Heaton is quite adept when it comes to writing the type of stories that pulls her readers in and hold their interest to the very end. She brings her characters to life and make everything appears quite realistic. I loved the twist she placed on Sable’s past which helped to make this story very intriguing. So far this is my favourite of the series and I can’t wait to see what next Felicity has in store for her fans.
If you love sexy paranormal stories that is filled with action, humour and a wide variety of paranormal species then get yourself a copy of this book.
“Men,” she muttered darkly. “ Doesn’t matter what species they are………. they’re all bloody idiots”.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review
