With Demon Princess: Reign Check, Michelle Rowen continues her fabulous skills at keeping us glued to our books as we delve deeper into Nikki's role as a demon Princess and all of it's perks and downfalls.

The first book in this delightful series, Demon Princess: Reign or Shine was a light-hearted, hilarious novel with an intriguing storyline, compelling protagonist and a whole of demon butt-kicking action. In my opinion, Demon Princess: Reign Check surpassed its predecessor. With an exciting romantic triangle and profound writing dealing with deep issues of death, choices and the consequences of our actions, Reign Check has become my favorite book within the series. ...more
To begin with, readers got to know Nikki even better, and she really matured in this book. I could understand her actions more and she was an overall more believable and likable character. I like Nikki's personality and it makes her narration way more enj ...more
I need to start off with saying, I can't believe that there may not be any more books to this series!! Please correct me if I'm wrong because I'll be so excited if I am. There is so much more left to explore in Nikki's world and I really, really don't want it to be over. It finished so open-ended, I want more now! Ok, time to calm down now. I hope I made my point clear. :D As you can probably tell by now I loved Reign Check. I may even dare to say that I liked it more that Reign or Sh ...more
Tapi fokus di buku ini lebih ke petualangannya Nikki pertama kali ke Underworld. Di sana dia bakal ketemu semacam petinggi-petinggi Underworld yang diantaranya Queen Sephina, Ratu dari Underworld itu sendiri. Banyak kejadian menarik sekaligus menegangkan yang ...more
I love the fun attitude this series takes on. The first book DEMON PRINCESS was one of my favorite reads in the past, and REIGN CHECK didn't disappoint at all. Highly recommended for 7th grade and up fans of paranormal or fantasy and anyone who loves great humor and a fun story.
"A week ago. I was a normal, boring teenager.
Then I met my father for the first time and found out he was a demon. And not just any demon: he was also the king of another dimension, called the Shadowlands.
Which made me a princess--a demon princess.
So very not normal." -Nikki
After saving her dad and his kingdom, Nikki goes back to the human world, knowing that the Shadowlands are now safe once again. What Nikki doesn't expect is to find the faerie king, Rhys, enroll ...more
We're introduced to more characters of most species as well, all without ignoring characters (good, bad, or indifferent) from the first book. She has a really good basis to continue the series and ma ...more
When the king of the faery realm shows up at Nikki's (very human) high-school to spy on her and her half-demon motives, her life becomes ...more
It was just one week since sixteen year old Nikki had found out that she was a demon and that her father is the demon king of the Shadowlands. This means that Nikki is a princess. Not the kind of pressure that a high school girl needs. Thankfully she has a wonderful friend Melinda at her side. To complicate m ...more

Fresh from finding out she is a demon princess and meeting her father for the first time, Nikki Donovan is looking forward to getting back to her regular high school life. But then Rhys, the handsome teenage king of the faery realm, enrolls at her school as a "foreign exchange student." Her conflicted feelings for Rhys and her boyfriend are getting in the way of her new relationship with the Shadow-creature Michael. But this ...more
I think after having such a rough time with Reign or Shine, I was just not motivated to read this one. Though, I do have to say this one impressed me.
Remember that my one major issue with Reign or Shine was our Shadow/Prince/Servant/Thing, Michael. Well, he actually showed he had a backbone in this book! Again, he was kind of stupid (even he admits to it), but he was an idiot with a backbone. I mean, I guess I'd be a bit of a twit if I was stuck in a castle all my life.
So, yeah, respect for Mic ...more
This is a fast simple easy read with funny sarcastic moments. The problem I'm having is that there's no depth. It's simply: Oh this is how I feel right now and why is the faery ...more

Nikki is one of my favorite YA characters. She’s surprisingly mature, unafraid to speak her mind.
Case in point: when her father wants to see her, she confronts him about keeping his promise to set Michael free.
Middle books in series tend to suck, but this one is the exception. There’s a lot of action and problems coming at Nikki from all directions. The second book has several intricate plots going on with Michael, Rhys, Melinda (the demon slayer), C ...more

He pointed up. "That."
I looked up to see the mistletoe dangling from the ceiling where I'd hung it three hours before.
"Okay, but what does that-?"
Rhys kissed me.
"I really, really, didn't want to like that," he said.
"Rhys-" But before I could say anything else, he kissed me again and pulled me closer.”
"She isn't?" I said. "Then who is she?"
"You," he said.”
