Kenssie just wants her fellow demons to respect her. A little hero worship now and then wouldn't go amiss either. But as the lowly thrall of Rak, an embarrassment demon, she'll take whatever crumbs she's offered. When the demon council turns against her master, Rak and Kenssie are forced to relocate to the countryside. It seems Rak has been holding out against his thrall ...more

Well! Talk about raising the bar! I liked Ros Jackson’s The Secret Eater, it had a dark and evil feel at times. Diabolical Taste , on the other hand seems to bring the characters more to life, delving deeper into their feelings and their interactions, particularly Kenssie’s feelings for Rak and the guilt she feels for falling for her master. As a mere thrall to her demon, she is looked down on, one grain of sand on the ocean’s beaches. Like a ghost haunting Rak’s past, an intruder comes to their ...more

It’s hard for Kenssie to get any respect as the young thrall to Rakmanon, a demon who feeds on shame, especially since he relies on the smitten younger demon to be an emergency snack

But when circumstances force Rakmanon to move them to Lincolnshire and a deep secret from his past returns, Kenssie begins to see different viewpoints – and look twice at Rakmanon’s grip on her and just how much is she willing to lose and see destroyed at his say-so.



I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I l

Another adventure with Kenssie the secret-eating demon takes us into the countryside where Rak and Kenssie have fled from the council. They struggle to feed themselves in the sparsely populated area, and soon Kenssie learns why. Rak has a big secret waiting there and a vital mission to execute. Throw in a human with a formula that allows him to see demons, and Kenssie gets into a big mess. Can she help Rak with his problem without alerting the Council? Will he ever see her love for him and ...more

So this is the sequel to The Secret eater and it's just as good if not better that the first! There is a strange bond between a master demon and his thrall, which is Rak and Kessie. Mostly, I just wanted to tell Kessie that he isn't worth her time. He's more tyrant that anything and she's the one killing herself to make him happy and powerful. And I think this proves that though this is a fantasy story, it's a believable relationship. People always make excuses for the ones they love and let ...more

"Diabolical Taste" is funny, sad and exciting. Satire often seems to bring out those feelings in me. The relationship between Rak and Kenssie is definitely an abusive one. Kenssie is the only one who can walk the painful journey of accepting that her illusions are just that. The whole demonic thrall system reeks of abuse.

Rak and Kenssie perfectly illustrate the lies we tell ourselves about ourselves and the people we have chosen to love. Coming to realize that one’s relationship is a destructive
