But the story picked up quite a bit finally towards The second half of this book was much better than the first half.
Some of the things that Colin and Savi say to one demmon seriously caused my heart to hurt with wonder. Meljean Brook has a habit of populating her books with interesting characters mljean all places and times, and it makes for a refreshing read.
He was determined to save Lilith, even when she didn’t seem to want saving. Feb 04, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: The pacing issues were totally cleared up. Sep 25, Jane Stewart rated it it was ok Shelves: Lilith doesn’t really like her job very much, but does it anyway because her dear daddy is a creepy, sadistic, evil dude and displeasing him is worse than death.

Retro Review: Demon Moon by Meljean Brook – Book Binge
Colin, the vampire, is slutty and vain and funny, but also completely self-aware and self-possessed and self-confident. Their odd almost friendship spans centuries But she really lost me sometimes in this one. I had to wait for more than a page until I read that it was Chaos she saw. A life for her life and the life meljeah demands she take is Hugh’s.
The sex is hot. Don’t get me wrong, I like authors that challenge the reader to pay attention and read the fine print. Collin Far too much of inner exploitation; Not exploration… I really mean exploitation.
He expelled a long breath, smiled slightly as if in memory. Her worldbuilding is intriguing. And yet he takes it all in stride. I sent Meljean an email at one in the morning after I finished Demon Moon accusing her of making me cry. View all 31 comments. This book was full of emotion and centuries of wanting from afar!!! I lost focus on the romance, which kept me from being very invested.
Regardless, I don’t like him. The main characters, Hugh and Lilith Somehow Meljean Brook manages to pull it off.
The eternal struggle between the forces of light and dark. Also, the heroine is invariably A Strong Female. Even though this is considered a romance, men can enjoy this book also because the moln between the two characters is not the most important thing. It is a big book, but there is no fluff. She takes great care in creating a story over time — eight centuries to be exact — that is designed to make the reader feel fully I had really high hopes for this book, having heard such great things about this writer.
I completely identified with her. But perhaps a little absurdity is shocking enough to break the bonds of her bargain, save the abducted college students and maybe even close the Gates from Deomn to Earth for five demmon years. What redeemed her from being a total indulgence of a character is her inability to hold a grudge.
And Lilith is a constant bitch to every one except Hugh who she is very protective of. And I loved that she didn’t put unnecessary conflict in front of Colin and Savi – no “misunderstandings” to keep them mejean. The best part is that Brook is able to show this side of the character but still include the humanizing vulnerabilities.
