Before I begin my review here are a few random thoughts...
-Holy shit.
-Oh Eric. Stop being so demented and come find me. I'll love you forever...just don't love me back you sick bastard.
-I want the new guardian of the pool of lost souls as a pet.
-Yay for happy(?) endings.
-Lol. Nakey.
Ok. Review time.
Morals, self respect, and dignity are telling me to hate this book. To not only shun but condemn it to the lowest of the low ranking....but....I....can't.

This series started out as solid Young Adult reading. I devoured them alongside my daughter... But, with this concluding volume the series has really graduated into a full-fledged adult paranormal romance - and it's stronger for it.

All along we've seen Ivy Taylor struggle with the reality of who she believes herself to be versus who she is fated to become. With this book, the underlying theme that has been alluded to all along becomes

Damn...I just had to read the whole book! It was just to good to put down. I happy sad and feeling a strong need for more Ivy and Collin. They are too cute. I hate to say it but so much more could happen with this ending. Ivy is so powerful in this book it was hard to believe that she was so young. Without saying to much I did like the hurting going on between the two. I know it played into bigger things but it was painful at times to read and not be turned off. Overall...this is a great series ...more

I love this series. I mean, really love it, so it was especially sad to feel so let down by the final book. Don't get me wrong - it was a good book. It just didn't have the satisfying bang I was hoping for. I could list all the things that bothered me, but I won't - I'll just stick to the 3 that really got me tweaked.


1) Is it just me, or did Ivy get pretty slutty in this? It seems like every guy in the story got to feel her up at least once. And then she's walking around

I got in on my Kindle last night!!! It's great so far (not that i expected any different)! :D

I've just finished the book and I think it is every bit as brilliant as the others. I couldn't stop reading until I found out exactly how Ivy would extract herself from this elaborate plot without damning herself or anyone innocent in the process. The story had plenty of twists and turns -I honestly couldn't tell what would happe

1. Oh Em Gee!!!!!!!
2. all hell no!!!

Ok so from the first book I was hooked! I couldn't wait for it to come out and when i got it I couldn't believe it. From start to finish I didn't want to put it down. I finished it in two days and all I kept thinking was I should have read it slower. But I just couldn't wait. Now that I'm done I wanted more! She never seems to let us down when it comes to her writing. Loved the suspense, so many twists and turns that I loved it.

This book is AMAZING! All I have to say is AWESOME JOB H.M. Ward!!!It is the perfect book to end this thrill riding paranormal romance! I was never sure which guy Ivy was going to end up with. Not only did we get to keep up with Ivy, Collin, and Eric, we also learned a little more about a few of the secondary characters. I must say that if The Evil Demon King really did look as good as what i pictured in my head I'm not sure I would be able to resist! This book picks up right where Satan's Stone ...more

This was a great final book to Demon Kissed. Right from the beginning the action started and it drew me in until the end. A few parts were a little hard to figure out so I had to read them again, which is why it got 4stars instead of 5. The end really was heartbreaking and not very happy. But the very end left us with a good happy note. Love Collin, Eric and Ivy! Can't wait for the spinoff series. ...more

Wow!! Finished reading it last night and it's absolutely amazing! So many things happening at the end I just couldn't stop reading and go to bed. I kinda looked like a zombie this morning at work but it was so worth it!! Brilliant ending!!
You can tell if a series is good when you just can't stop reading it over and over...very few grabbed me this way. Congrats Holly! You're a wonderful writer! Now...I guess I'll just have to get the other books about Eric and Collin!

"Well, what the fuck does that mean?"

"Yeah, fate sucks like that. You spend a couple hundred lifetimes learning stuff only to be martyred--twice."

"It's a fucking dragon, not the Omen! It has scales, breathes fire, and flies like a deranged cow with wings."
As you can see, I am a fan of Eric.

The worst part about this book is that it has the potential to be fucking amazing. It has all the right elements--excitement, action, darkness, heart ache, and the most important one to me: consequences. All

My daughter brought this series home and I was between books so as she finished the first I asked to read it. Well I binge read the entire series online before she was done with books from the school library. These books are so good I couldn't put them down. 13th Prophecy is fantastic. It didn't disappoint and the strong storyline sucks you in. I carried my kindle everywhere to read it when I could even in the Walmart cashier line.
Get this series its great.

The Demon Kissed series is a must read for everyone who.enjoys famtasy.

This series has all the aspects of an excellent book; the plot is strong and the characters are believable, but the best part is that I never got tired of reading this. It moves along so well that it is easy to forget about doing other things in your life. I have been that captivated in a long while. This series is highly recommended.

I found the premise of this series to be interesting but I think the execution was lacking. To be perfectly honest, it was just okay. Nothing special but it wasn’t terrible. I didn’t fall in love with the characters but I didn’t particularly dislike them either. Everything about this series was just meh to me which was quite disappointing because this genre is exactly the kind of books I enjoy. I just think that there are a lot better books/series out there with similar plots and better characte ...more

Review on Linny's Literature

With their non-stop action, unique storyline, and powerful characters that I loved, I have come to be a big fan of the Demon Kissed series. So, of course, I was ecstatic about reading the final book, The 13th Prophecy, when it came out. While The 13th Prophecy had much of the splendor of the previous books, it wasn't quite the perfect gem that I had learned to expect from this series.

The main thing that tarnished this "gem" from perfection for me was Ivy's boobs. No

To be completely honest, I may not be the best person to review this series. The only reason I finished this book was because it was the last book in the series and I had to see how it ended. I really wanted to walk away from this series, but I couldn't walk away when I was that close to the end, especially after I invested so much time into this series.

The 13th Prophecy was hectic and overwhelming. I couldn't enj

Finally! The last book. Now, I can finally get the truth. Right?

Nope, there are a lot of loose ends. And his name is Eric. Collin and Ivy? Well, I think you know what happened. Actually, I hope you don't know what happened. Because the ending of The 13th Prophecy was just weird. So weird that I had no idea what the hell is going on in it. Okay, maybe I do know what was going on, but for the most part, it was weird. And strange.

You know this jealousy and "whose ego is bigger" contest between Collin and Eric is kind of getting annoying, I mean don't they have more important issues like I don't know finding Satan's stone? I mean Jesume they need to get a grip! "Eric pushed off the wall standing eye to eye with Collin. "I wouldn't bring up that day if I were you. Possessed by a demon or not you're the one who killed the Guardian and opened the floodgates of Hill. It was your hand that destroyed her life-her world." Eric t ...more

Yay I am finally done this series. I don’t want it to seem like I don’t like these books which I do. I enjoyed reading them but they did make me a little bit frustrated. I needed more villains and less of the same problems. It was basically the same drama over and over again.

This book’s main purpose was for Ivy to find Satan’s Stone and use it. She also has to choose between feeding her energy to Eric for him to survive and being with Collin. A lot of the times I found that when the part got ex

I read this series pretty much back to back because so much was going on that if I stopped I would never understand where I'm up to lol. Having said that, I found the series to be thoroughly enjoyable. I really liked the Martis complex and first foray into in hell (in I think book 2) and especially when we FINALLY get to meet Kreturus. Those bits I loved and had unexpected twists, although I do think Kreturus wasn't as fully developed a character as he could be. The

I really loved this series and I was hooked from Chapter 1 as Ivy's life was like a runaway train with many unexpected twists and turns along the way. Her battle with demons and angels not to mention Kreterus is almost over and whether Collin or Eric will become casualties of war is yet to be seen. Who will be the last one standing and will Ivy become the Queen of the Underworld after all? This book had everything from star-crossed lovers to dragons and warrior angels plus a battle with the ulti ...more
