"The Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss – he stole her soul."

DEMON KISSED is a young adult paranormal-romance novel, by American author H.M. Ward. 

The Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss – he stole her soul and left her within inches of death. By surviving, Ivy is drawn into the conflict between the Martis and the Valefar. The war between these two immortal forces has raged for millennia without distraction. Until now. Ivy is an anomaly—she is the only person who has ever walked away from a demon kiss alive. Her survival gives her unique and deadly abilities. Too powerful to ignore, Ivy is a threat to both armies. These two ancient enemies will stop at nothing to kill the seventeen-year-old. Surviving is nothing new for headstrong Ivy, but her survival has never depended on another person before. This time it does. And if she misplaces her trust, she's dead. To her horror, she starts falling in love at the worst possible time—with the enemy. He appears to be protecting her. But she can't be certain if he is trying to help her, or help himself to her power. For Ivy, trusting the right person is the difference between love and survival, or a deadly demon kiss.

Amy’s review Apr 10, 2011
5 of 5 stars

“Wow! The story line was great, and the concept of the book was something I’ve never read before. There were so many twists that I couldn’t predict anything that happened. I was kept guessing the entire time. Books like this are a rare find, especially when not that many people know about them. So I’m spreading the word! Read this book! You won’t regret it! The sequel can’t come out soon enough!”

“This is one of the rare finds where the story draws you in and refuses to let go. Narrated in such detail, you are taken on an epic journey that will make you feel a part of Ivy Taylor’s world, with a vested interest in each character. It takes an extraordinary piece of literature to drive the emotions and senses felt while reading this novel. Demon Kissed is the beginning of an amazing adventure….”

“Okay well, that was extremely intense. I was sweating, that’s how engrossed in the story I was. This story brings a whole new meaning to soul mate. I thoroughly enjoyed this story about the fight of good & evil-literally. It was jam packed with demons, prophecies, love and loss. Huge cliffhanger at the end! I seriously can’t not wait to see what happens next. Exceptional Debut that will leave you gasping for more……”

“This book was unlike any other book I’ve ever read. At first glance you’re probably like oh this is just another one of those “Twilight” type books, but you’d be so wrong! You get drawn in from the very beginning and it doesn’t let go of you even after you read the last page! My only regret is that I didn’t read it slower, because now I can’t wait for the next book to come out.”

“One of the best books I have read in some time. The story-line is great. Often I have to read a chapter or so into a book to really get into it, but not this one. It pulled me in right from page one. I can’t wait for the second one to be released later this summer. I LOVED IT!!! I strongly suggest this book to anyone who likes to read. Especially if you like the Twilight and/or H.O.N. (House of Night) series’. I personally was getting tired with the vampire books. This book about the war between ‘Angels’ and ‘Demons’ was a nice change of pace.”

“When I first found the book (about 7 months ago) it looked amazing just from the first chapter. I ordered the book about 14 hours ago and havent put it down except for to go to sleep. It was amazing. The way the author shares Ivy’s story. There are really no words to describe how good this book is. Just read it.”
