Review: The Devil's Liege by Danielle DeVor


Being a vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be- in fact, it kind of sucks.

After surviving his duel with Lilith, Mathias thought that he could relax. That is until he discovers that, Nossy, the new king, has been kidnapped.

When the investigating vampires seem to have no clue how to rescue Nosferatu, Mathias must step in. Everything is peachy until Mathias is named the next new king in order to stop the man behind Nossy’s kidnapping from taking over the throne.

Suddenly, his life is not his own again, and Mathias must make a choice: risk his life to find his friend, or sit back and watch disaster unfold.

Publication Date: September 26, 2014

This was such a good and twisty paranormal read! I was a little leery of picking up the second book without reading the first, but I had no problem getting transported to the world DeVor created.

Mathias was an easy character to connect with. He had such a real voice and I liked how he didn’t sugarcoat life as a vampire. His voice felt real and authentic. The side characters were also well done with standouts being Nossy and Vlad.

The pacing was really well done. What I liked is that the plot developed naturally and there wasn’t a huge info dump at the beginning. I liked the gradual hints DeVor wove into the plot to let me know what was going on with the vampire royalty.

The dialogue was my favorite part of the book. I love the wit and humor that comes from Mathias and his vampire interactions. Despite the darkness of the plot, there was actually quite a few laugh out loud quips.

The Devil’s Liege is a great book for fans of YA vampire novels. I’d suggest starting with Tail of the Devil to see how Mathias’s journey began.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
