Am I capable of being objective in my review of this series anymore? Honest answer: probably not. I just love it too much. It contains all the tropes in the exact right combination that give it a direct first class ride to my happy place. More succinctly put; I love it and want it’s babies. Or more accurately I want the world to end by evil hell hounds who turn people into zombies so that I can be rescued and adored by a big grey Fey warrior. The feminist within me is banging her head against a big grey wall of muscle (and coping a feel).
And, I admit it is the delicious heroes combined with it feeling like the paranormal romance version of the Walking Dead – one of my favourite TV series – that has me adoring these books. The heroes in this series have the innocent savage vibe going on, which is a character type that has me insta-loving all heroes. The fey are fierce and powerful warriors but until recently they lived in an all male society and women/sex is a very recent discovery for them. Much to their delight. Haag manages to make them ‘innocently’ lustful. They want nothing more than to find a woman and worship her in all ways and they aren’t shy about asking how to do it, which is a great source of both humour and indecent levels of adorable. How Haag makes them both so lusty and so non-threatening (unless you’re a zombie or a hellhound) is genius.
But, it isn’t just the heroes that I love about this series, and Demon Night in particular is a great demonstration of what I find so enticing. The on-going battle to survive the ever evolving zombies and the relentless hellhounds keeps the pace of the story going, not just on an individual book level, but a series level as well. The mortal peril of being attacked looms over everyone, but as the series goes on there is also the more basic things like finding food and a safe place to shelter. This was an issue that was explored really well in Demon Night; never have I been so tense about canned food.
This was a great book in this series, I read it in one sitting and now I am eagerly anticipating the next book. If you want a paranormal romance which is full of humour, survival and heroes that have you day dreaming about the apocalypse then you need to give this book a try.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
