A helpful prequel nibble... (4 stars)
Fantasy romance is a genre that just doesn't get a lot of buzz but remains one of my favorites. When I started Altenburg's Demon Outlaws series I was in awe at how cool the world she's built is. Technically it's the future and post-post-apocalyptic in a sense but the addition of demons and goddesses makes it fantasy with a slightly western vibe. Yeah, it sounds complicated but if you enjoy excellent world building it's a great series to dive into. But I've always wanted to know more about the beginnings of the world, specifically the Demon Lord and his lover, which Altenburg finally delivers a taste of in THE DEMON LORD.
If you've previously read the series and been left with the same curiosity I had in regards to it's roots TDL is worth a read. It's admittedly really short and doesn't cover much beyond the set-up of Allia and The Demon Lord as lovers but gives hints about characters, Desire and Mamna, who play key roles later. This is a good starting point for those who haven't begun the series, but I'd definitely suggest reading it back to back with THE DEMON'S DAUGHTER for full effect.
Because it's such a tiny novella there just isn't much more to tell you. It's sensual and interesting but over so quickly!
