Serenity was a very interesting and intriguing book to read. The author’s world building pulled me right into the story and immersed me in the rich world the book is set in. Serenity has not had it easy from birth and has had to deal with many assassination attempts.
This book was filled with strong, believable and determined characters but the character of Serenity was the most intriguing. She was serene in one aspect but could transform into a cold and calculating woman who didn't pull any punches. And when Serenity did transform from tranquil to calculating, trouble and bloodshed followed. I did enjoy Melchoir's character though he was frustrating to me at times with his stubbornness. I will say that though I enjoyed many of the characters and I hope that some will get their own stories, I definitely wish for Chigaru to get his own story.
Serenity is a fantastic, emotional and heart wrenching read which will have readers on the edge of their seats in suspense, cheering for the romance, dabbing away tears and laughing with its humor. This book will be going in my re-read pile.
They can have an everlasting love… if the demon will allow it.
Assassination attempts are nothing new for Princess Serenity. Since before her birth, many enemies have tried to end her life to stop her from fulfilling a marriage treaty that would bring an end to the war between humans and demons. She happily embraces her upcoming role and wants nothing more than to be a loving wife to her new husband, but that may be asking too much in a political union.
King Melchior is not a demon and his people aren’t savage monsters. He proposed the marriage treaty to prove to the humans that he and his people want peace. He didn’t expect to end one battle just to start a new one in his bedroom. No matter how eager his new wife proclaims to be, he has no intention of letting her in his bed or his heart.
The atmosphere of the palace is strained, and the estranged royal couple have made themselves easy targets for attack. The assassins will restart war the moment they kill Serenity, but one magic is strong enough to save her. In order to use it, Melchior must decide which is more important to him—his pride as the ruler of a strong and powerful people or his love for a small, determined human who was brave enough to offer her heart to a demon.
