Book Review: Where Demons Fear To Tread


“Fledging guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission—to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure–seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…

After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy–sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries–old feelings. Now, their high–stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell. Or a deliciously hot heaven.”

Oh. My. Goodness! I was completely and utterly infatuated with this book!

From the first page, I was in love with this book. Ms. Chong’s wonderful imagery, beautiful writing, and inspiring characters makes for a perfect read from beginning to end. Not to mention, the build up of sexual tension makes it incredibly hard to put this book down…you just can’t wait to see what happens in the games of demons and angels.

I was afraid this book would come across as cliche as most angel vs demon books but it did not feel that way at all. I was also pleasantly surprised at how adult this book was. Finally, a fantastical love story for the older readers! We get to delve way past the YA cooties and kissing for a real, sensual experience.

I also love that we get to read the point of views of both Serena, the angel, and Julian, the demon. The emotions displayed by both seem to real and plausible the whole way through. You come to love both characters, as they are well-developed and and raw.

The secondary characters (namely the demons) are especially fun since Stephanie Chong always them to be downright nasty and well, demon-like.

“The Company was counting on her. The task was simple enough. An assignment fit for a fledgling angel like herself. Or it should have been. But this demon was in her way. This dangerously handsome demon, with the promise of pleasure glinting in his eyes.”

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good paranormal romance – or just anyone who likes to read (yes, it was that good). This quickly made its way to the ranks of one of my favorites.

I can’t wait to read what’s coming up next in the Company of Angels series!
