Thoughts: Wow, this was just as good as the first book with so many new surprises. The story flowed along at a nice pace until close to the end. Then it was so full of excitement that I swear I read faster to try to keep up. I went from "WHAT?" to "OH NO!" back to "WHAT?" then "AWWW THAT SUCKS!" in just a few pages. It was awesome! And the characters are just as enthralling. The little side st

Just finished this book and wow, what a sequel. The story moves along smoothly, building to a wonderful crescendo. The last 20% of the book is almost impossible to put down. Seriously, I missed my morning workout because I was too busy trying to hurry and finish the story. I'd tell you more, but then I'd spoil the fun. Just trust me when I say, if you enjoyed the first book, you are going to love this one. ...more

‘Daemoneum,’ sequel to author McMann’s ‘Crystallum,’ is another exciting adventure. Set just days after the first book leaves off, Kade, Cole, and their friends are searching for answers while trying not to tip off the entire Primordial race that the danger has escalated.

This book, the second entry in ‘The Primordial Principles,’ adds several point-of-view narrating characters, through which readers get to see a bigger picture of everything that happens, rather than just from Kade or Cole’s poin

NOTE: My 2 Star Rating doesnt mean I didnt like it. It means that I only enjoyed some parts and had a lot of issues with it.

I recently finished the first book and had a lot of mixed feelings about it. However by the end most of my issues were resolved so I thought it would all be smoothed sailing from here, right? The characters and the world had already been explained and theres this big threat that should lead to some exciting action.

I figured it couldnt dragged nearly as much as the first o

This book was so good! I enjoyed the unfolding of the plot and the different viewpoints of the characters.

I really think the different viewpoints helped drive the plot in a non-telling way (where the character would have to report to another). I also think it created character development in a way many stories lack. Unfortunately, that did to lead to some repeated info as the character that discovered something had to report it to others creating a slight redundancy; this was dealt with by addi

I didn't like the first one, so it comes as no surprise that this one follows the same path. The characters are as plane as in the first book (Cole being as prickish "c'mon look at me, I am the supposedly attractive guy and a daredevil", with his very own sidekick and the girl he likes but ignores him) and the plot has some ridiculous twists, such as: "we just skydived into the Abyss and merely made it out alive and instead of talking why we are such morons or why the everloving hell did we do t ...more

Loved this sequel to Crystallum. Many questions from the first book were answered, and new mysteries and details were introduced that pulled me breathless to the end. The characters I grew to know like family from Crystallum gained even more depth and individuality. Their reality became mine--what more do you want from a book?
Except, of course, knowing how the third book will unfold :-)

I received this copy from Netgalley in return for my unbiased opinion. I was left with a sense of anxiousness when I finished the first installment of the series, anxious to see if the book would build up to what I know it could be or if it would be like the first. I do have to say I enjoyed the pace of the second book a lot more than the first. The book starts off with answers being searched for and the continuing plot boiling at the seams to capture it’s reader within the pages.

I was so looking forward to this book and it did not disappoint. I love Cole and Kade as a couple and just how good they are together. We learn so many things and get surprises here and there. And when we find out who the real bad guy mastermind is, honestly, I didn't even think it could be him. We get some new characters who are important players as well. One who was amazing and one who is a complete dick. Cole gets the brunt of the pain here, suffering devastating loss and the shock of a lifet ...more

The second instalment of the Primordial Principles continues the story of Kade and Cole as they are on the run and are in hiding from the Daemoneum. After the events from the first book Kade is being hunted, but Cole and their friends refuse to let anything happen to her. Her unique self not only attracts negative attention from the demons, but also from the very people who are supposed to be the good guys.
This book was meh. I was not very impressed by or invested in the story. The story seeme

I write young adult dark urban fantasy mixed with a spike of paranormal romance, a touch of history, and a dash of mythology. I'm a dreamer, an over thinker, and a myths and legends believer. Nothing moves me more than writing fantastical stories. And reading them.

I am the author of:

The Fire Born Novels, The Primordial Principles, and The CrossWorld Chronicles
