Demon’s Mark by Nora Ash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Demons need love too!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: 😤😠🙃😍😘
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Selma – she has been able see monsters her entire life. They hide behind human skins so nobody else saw them and when she was a child, she was taken to a multitude of doctors because of it. She knew that she shouldn’t be out after dark because that is when they were out in force. However, when her boss made her work late one night and she saw three monsters drag a woman into an alley, and when she went to help, she was attacked and woke up at a mental hospital.
The Story: Selma had known that some monsters hid in plain sight, as teachers, bankers, and many other professions. However, she had never before had one as a psychiatrist where she was supposed to talk about her issues. When she tried to lie about what happened, Dr. Hershey knew she was lying and would have none of it. So she explained what happened in that alley until she passed out.
Selma trusts her new psychiatrist despite the fact that he is a handsome demon with horns and pointed ears. Dr. Marathin Hershey is also chief psychiatrist at Ravenswood House. He prescribes an unorthodox treatment for her psychiatric disorder. However, Selma soon finds out he has nefarious plans for her. So she runs away.
The Hero: Lord Protector Kain – after Selmas escapes from the mental hospital. Something about her had him on edge. He was the Lord of the Minnesota territory and was in charge of finding a group of female demons that were rumored to have settled in his territory and might be a precursor for the queen to try to break through from the North, in Canada. He sees that she is a breeder in need of protection.
This was an odd romance, since Selma is attracted to and hooks up with her doctor before the Hero is ever introduced into the story. Kain was a demon, but he was a much better man than Marathin Hershey who wanted to dominate and control every aspect of Selma’s life. I liked Kain, but didn’t like parts of this story, such as the auction and public claiming. Plus the fact that as a breeder Selma was seen as an object to be owned. Though overall I really did enjoy the story and the narration was great.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Stella Hunter and Jason Clarke. These are two of my favorite narrators. Stella has an soft feminine voice and does a decent man’s voice as well. Jason has a deep gravelly voice and shows a lot of emotion through his voice and I just love his narration.
