As if overthrowing the vampire government and helping implement a new council to make vampires, shifters, and hybrids play nice wasn’t enough, Demetrius Devereux finds a bigger problem to deal with in an innocent, stubborn, and privileged beauty.
Callista Augustus is the over-protected daughter of a once-powerful vampire leader. Discovering her desperate father has tapped into a well of pure evil, Calli swallows her sense of betrayal and turns him in. She almost regrets it when she meets the infamous and arrogant Demetrius. Forcing herself to work with the male who ruined her family, Calli’s only concern is saving her father.
When Demetrius gets past the infuriating personality of the righteous female, he realizes Calli’s the one in great danger. He gives her his help out of duty, until it becomes clear that if he loses her, he loses everything.
My Review: Being sold isn’t totally bad, because you have that hope that someone loves you enough to find you, you even have that 50/50 chance of escaping on your own. But being Callista “Calli” Augustus that was more like no chance in hell on both scores. When you’re young you hope that both parents love you enough but with Callista she had the knowledge that her mother sold her to a demon and that she was being groomed to bare his offspring. Seeking help is never easy. But Calli does. That help comes in a form of Demetrius Devereux…loved by few, hated by many, but that is not stopping him in finding out the collaborators in his paranormal world who is aiding the demons.
When Callie come seeking his help, he gives it out of obligation. But when Demetrius starts to have stronger feelings for Callie. He soon learns that Callie was the “One” and nothing will stand in his way of keeping her safe and claiming which belongs to him.
Demetrius was the first book by Marie Johnston I have ever read. It’s too is fitting that this is the first book in her new series (New Vampire Disorder). Marie Johnston takes us on a captivating, and intriguing ride. A great start to a new series. Which I can’t wait for the second book. Demetrius is an excellent addition to the genre of the paranormal.
