Rating: 4.5 out of 5 wicked stars
Nikki Donovan is your normal high school teenager just trying to survive in her new school after her mother's newest marriage. Her day is going perfect; she has the most popular friends, and a really cute guy just asked her to the dance AND kissed her! Nikki's world gets shaken up when she realizes she is being stalked by a strange guy that keeps calling her Princess and telling her that her father, that she has never met, is actual the demon king of the Shadowlands. When she finally is convinced that this stalker might be telling the truth she travels to the Shadowlands determined to tell her long-lost Daddy what she thinks of him...only to find out he is dying and needs her to take his place and stay in Shadowlands for the rest of her life. What's a princess to do?
This story was humorous and fun. Nikki has a quirky and endearing personality that will draw you in, not to mention her stalker is quite hot. There is some love, action, demons, fairies and a few "other worldly" beings that round out this book to make it a delightful read. I really enjoyed the book and look forward the next in the series, Reign Check due out in June 2010.
