1 . Must Buy Book!
Posted May 23, 2007 by Mom Who Loves To Read , IowaThis book is Wow! Put this one on your BUY NOW list. It is great.
Also other books in this Demon series, but each book can be read as a stand alone book. You can find the other books on the author's website www.emmaholly.com
This book is in an alternative Victorian universe, fantasy, very steamy, linked to other Demon books, but can be read out of order. The books are "Demon's Daughter," "Prince of Ice," "Hot Spell (anthology)", and "Demon's Delight (anthology)". The two anthology books only have a short story in each in the Demon book series.
Once you read this book, you will be hooked and want to read the rest.
Be warned---once you read Emma Holly----you will find you want to read everything she writes. You will become hooked on Emma Holly as an author. I must say everything she writes is WOW! I can't wait for her next book!

Excerpt from Prince of Ice by Emma Holly
The emperor of the yama was coming into heat; he simply was too drunk to know it.
His humble maidservant, Xoushou, was the reason for both conditions. It was she who had slipped the pharmaceutic accelerator into his meals for the past two weeks, she who kept his silver goblet brimming tonight. Most importantly, she had timed everything so that his sexual cycle would reach its peak while the empress and her clique were unreachable. The emperor himself did not dare interrupt his wife when she was at her private mountain spa. She had made her feelings about that icily clear the first time he tried.
Theirs was not a love match--at least not on the empress's side. Xoushou had come to think the emperor had a yen for his wife, a yen the empress almost never gratified.
Xoushou hid her satisfaction under hooded eyes, fighting not to squirm on her embroidered pillow in the shadowed corner where she sat awaiting further orders. The empress's withholding nature was to the good. Her husband's signs of restlessness were rising, and Xoushou could not deny she was looking forward to enacting every aspect of her revenge. True, the emperor's father had been responsible for banishing Xoushou's family from its rightful place in the inner court, but like all the royal line, Emperor Songyam was a handsome man: tall, slender, and, when his rut was on him, virile as a bull.
