Welcome to the book tour for the romantic fantasy Of Demon Kind by Wendy L. Anderson. Read on for an exclusive and spicy excerpt and a chance to win a paperback copy of this beauty!
He’s heir to a dark throne. She’s a gentle healer. Will their forbidden attraction be the key to mending his broken soul?
Prince Lorn just wants to be left alone. Drinking heavily to numb the despair of failing to prevent his evil father’s horrific defeat and his own inability to conquer the humans, the devastated half-demon has spent the last five years exiled in a drunken stupor. But when he’s falsely accused of kidnapping a beautiful noble, he emerges vowing to fight to clear his name…by becoming her white knight.
Princess Lililaira longs to be free. Imprisoned in a sorcerer’s tower, the courageous woman is startled when a gorgeous, winged man flies in through the window and offers rescue. Seizing the opportunity to escape, she places her trust in the fierce warrior’s arms in a daring flight to freedom.
Desperate to avert another brutal war, Lorn draws nearer to his lovely companion while wrestling with the sins of his past. And though Lililaira is happy to help her intriguing savior prove his innocence in return for his aid in evading her cruel father’s rule, her growing love demands she stand beside him as they set into an unknown future.
Can they break away from eternal torment and claim their destiny together?
Of Demon Kind is the thrilling first book in the Kingdom of Jior romantic fantasy series. If you like brooding anti-heroes, chivalrous passions, and epic medieval battles, then you’ll adore Wendy L. Anderson’s magical tale.

So we are going to do this review a little bit differently. I can really see where a lot of people would love this book, so I am writing this for you. This was not a bad book, but at the end of the day, it was only a three-star read for me because I did not jive with the tropes. I have read two other books from this author from her spin-off of this series and I really enjoyed them. Please note, this is a very adult book and not for children. I saw where people had asked if 11/12-year-old could read it, as a parent I say no, there are some explicit sex scenes in this one.
This is a romance book that just happens to be in a fantasy world. This book goes from tame to spicy in the first three chapters. So be ready for a ride. This book is really easy to read and follow, you get the fantasy world, but It’s not so in-depth that you have to keep notes on who people are.
The male main character is a “tormented” alpha male, and honestly, his character was well written. I am not a fan of this type of character, but I have to give the author credit, she did not go way over the top with him. The best comparison that I can come up with is the Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Mass.
So if you prefer your fantasy to be more romantic, and you love the tormented alpha male trope, then this book is for you!
