3.0 out of 5 starsNever Save a Demon
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2018
While there was nothing really wrong with the writing (a few typos, such as haunch instead of hunch), I have to say, I simply disliked Lyn as a main character and found Sam pretty weak as either a possible romantic interest or antihero/antagonist. The story line had lots of promise, but I have a problem with books when the heroes are annoying or self-centered. I also felt there were plot holes, such as not recognizing Sam as a demon and her resistance to recognizing the danger to herself and others. Childish and a slob, Lyn had no real redeeming qualities to make me like her or sympathize with her-- other opinions may differ, but this wasn't a series for me.
Lyn Conway, a demon hunter protector of humanity, watched an Arwah demon, looking like a ball of tar with teeth, move over the welcome mat at the open door. She was teaching martial arts to a class of preschoolers and needed to get them away from the demon who could possess anyone it touched. She had her receptionist best friend toss her sword to her and take the children outside while she took care of the problem oozing across the floor. This was the second demon this week – and it was only Tuesday!
She walked into her apartment and saw 3 people in the living room. One was Sam -- the gorgeous Greater demon she had accidentally soul-bonded to a week ago by saving his life -- and a middle-aged couple who gasped at the sight of her sword. The Emersons wanted to hire Lyn. Their daughter was a involved in the recent suicide deaths which were highly suspicious since all the young women were blonde, blue-eyed, around the same height, and in the same age range – in fact, exactly like Lyn herself. But what the public didn’t know, each girl had a sigil carved in her chest. She wasn’t even sure it was demonic, but Sam was encouraging her to take the case! When the Emersons left, they proceeded to bicker about Lyn’s purchase of junk food when she had made a bargain with him that she would “eat healthy” and he had made her dinner. At least in their present circumstance, he could never harm her without harming himself. But why was he being so accommodating and even protective toward her?
I loved the snarky, fun tone of this book immediately! The personalities of the characters jump right out at the reader, which shows what a good job the author is doing in introducing them! The banter that goes on between the characters will keep the reader laughing. Even the secondary characters are amazing! So while Sam and Lyn are “stuck with each other”, will they be able to solve the mystery of the sigil? Will Lyn realize just how much Sam is really there for her when things get really difficult and dangerous? Is there any way other than death to break this bond that keeps them together? Grab your copy and find out – and grab Book 2 which is also available now! You are definitely going to fall in love with these characters and will want to see how it all works out!

This book is a laugh out loud riot. The author takes us on a hysterical cheeky ride. Poor Lyn Conway she is a mess , she is a demon hunter with a little bit of a problem . She is bound to a sexy demon that just won't go away . Well actually he can't go away he is bound to her and the only way that he will leave is if she dies. She doesn't want to die but when she is being hunted down it will take all of her and Sam's powers to keep her alive . I absolutely fell in love with these characters . Lyn is such a mess, she is trying to survive hunting the demons she sees, keeping the world safe . She is snarky and so not a girlie girl . She is actually really tough and has a heart of gold for her best friend and her grandmother. You will really like her she is a card . Sam is oh so sexy and a greater demon . He has this canny ability to peeve off Lyn any chance he can by giving her healthy food and counting her coffee intake . He is grumpy most of the time . but when the going gets tough he is there for Lyn to help her survive the demons that are coming . They are so different but they are so made for each other . You guys will love them and their cattiness towards each other, I absolutely loved this book . The characters are well written and complex and the author takes us on a fun filled journey. I had such a blast reading this book . It is a departure from her vampire series . This one is more tongue n cheek snarky and laugh out loud funny . Just the conversations between Sam and Lyn alone are hilarious . Every time he tries to get he to eat healthy well you will have to read to see what she does to get even . Trust me there is a lot of coffee drinking that goes on . I couldn't put the book down I read it in an evening and laughed all the way through . So if you want a great start to a new series check out NEVER SAVE A DEMON . Put it on your summer reading list .
As much as I wanted to like this book, it fell short. The Daughters of Eve consist of a twenty year old paranormal investigator and dojo employee and her ninety one year old great grandmother, who is the last actual Daughter. Lyn accidentally saved the life of a greater demon, Sam, and in doing so binds her soul to his. The people around her have significant secrets. Such as her "mortal" bff who is actually Lyn's inept guardian angel. The story is a jumble and confusing. It ends without resolving anything, leaving everything in limbo. For me, the series' eventual conclusion doesn't justify the poor manner of getting there, book by book.

Never Save A Demon is Book 1 in the A Daughter of Eve series. This is an exceptionally well written story line with complicated/complex characters. This author has a unique ability with words that bring the book to life which is truly an exceptional talent. Our two MC are Lyn Conway (demon hunter - a snarky one at that) and Sam (gorgeous greater demon) that Lyn bound herself to by accident when she save his life. The interaction between Lyn and Sam reminds me of Felix and Oscar (The Odd Couple) and will keep you laughing through out the book. When the chips are down and Lyn needs help and protection, Sam is there for her. All the characters are well developed and come to life as you read. I thoroughly enjoyed his book and looking forward to Book 2. I highly recommend it. Received a copy and this is my voluntary and honest review.
5.0 out of 5 starsSehr spannend und ungewöhnlich interessant
Reviewed in Germany on September 9, 2019
Der Titel ließ mich eigentlich eine kurzweilige, oberflächliche "cosy" Fantasiegeschichte erwarten, doch der Inhalt war überraschenderweise äußerst spannend und auch aus metaphysischer Sicht betrachtet wirklich interessant. Sehr gut gelungen sind die Beschreibungen der Fantasy-Elemente, man taucht ein in eine völlig andere, sehr gruslige Welt, mit faszinierenden Bildern und Dynamiken (allein die in unserer Welt vernebelte Sicht des Dämons, der nur übernatürliche Wesen klar erkennen kann, ist eine sehr innovative Idee, ebenso wie die Darstellung, wie die verschiedenen Dämonenarten Menschen befallen - hier findet man übrigens interessante Parallelen zu den auch heute noch existierenden christlichen Vorstellungen von Dämonenbefall die z.B. in einem kleinen Teil der Pfingstkirchen noch gelehrt werden. Bei soviel wirklich guter Unterhaltung kann man über einige Ungereimtheiten bei der Liebesgeschichte leicht hinweg sehen. Fazit: Für alle, die gerne spannende Bücher mit interessanten Fantasy-Elementen lesen, wirklich lesenswert.

It is quite horrible. The author went to great lengths to make the protagonist as unlikeable and straight up annoying as possible. While some of her actions (while still annoying me to no end) were understandable, most of them were not, but just so very irrational. While the manner of speaking (meaning the protagonist) may be supposed to be witty with a bit of snark, to me it evoked the desire to shake some sense the protagonist (rather violently). Additionally the protagonist seems to have strange priorities. Survival seems not at all important to her, her only motivations seem to be "hot guys" and disagreeing just to not let the other party be right (and not only in case of a demon where certain waryness may be warranted, but also when the other party involves her grandmother or her best friend). The demon is not much better written and seems to suffer from some sort of mood-swings. In one moment he clearly antagonises someone he sees as friend (the hell is up with that - forgive the pun) then turns to begging and then straight to insults. This is the sort of negotiating tactic you'd expect from a pre-teen or an idiot. But from a centuries old higher demon? Who are renown for their intelligence and their patience "playing the long game" ? It makes as little sense ad the previously mentioned protagonist. All in all: 1.5/10. The idea seems good, bit cliché but good. The execution was terrible.
Lyn is a daughter of Eve cursed with the sight of seeing demons just like all of the Conway women before her, she has accidentally bound herself to Sam who is a demon she had found him bruised and bleeding so Lyn took him to her apartment cleaned him up then accidentally bound their souls. Once that happened Lyn could see the real Sam the molten lava in his veins, they had made a pact that Sam would only eat the souls of worst of the worst that humanity had to offer instead of the innocent and Lyn vowed to stop eating junk food and only eat healthy but come on a little bit of junk food won’t hurt her right!. Lyn is a paranormal investigator and right now she is on a case it’s concerning 4 women who the police believe that it was suicide but one lot of parents think differently because the girls had the same marks on their bodies and the descriptions of the girls sound exactly like Lyn. That’s all I’m going to give you guys but this is just the beginning of this story but there is so much more. This is a fantastic story a 5 plus ⭐️ read and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.
