Review
This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Valerie Willis!

Cedric the Demonic Knight tells the story of Cedric, who he is and why he’s so attracted to Angeline. Cedric the Demonic Knight is about Cedric and Angeline’s adventure, how they defeat several monsters as well as start to fall in love with each other.

Cedric the Demonic Knight is a paranormal book with a lot of paranormal creatures such as vampires, werewolves, zombies, succubi, incubi, witches, chimeras, … and a lot more. It was really cool that there were so many different kinds of paranormal creatures but I would’ve wanted a list of all the explanations of the different creatures. I was constantly thinking about what kind of creature the character was and from which history they came from. So a list of all the explanations would’ve been handy!

Besides the list, I also want to say that Cedric the Demonic Knight was a bit long-threaded. In the beginning of the book everything went really fast, but then the more I read the more I felt like it was a bit boring with unnecessary information. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the concept of this book with all the different kinds of creatures, but it would’ve been better if it was a tad shorter.

The main characters, Cedric and Angeline, were both a bit annoying. I really like that Cedric is a special kind of creature because he’s a mix of a moroi and an incubus, but it was a bit irritating that he always had to be rude to Angeline, and Angeline was crying all the time. I do want to say that there was a good character development, they slowly started to like – even love each other and they became better persons. Cedric started to accept what Angeline truly means to him and Angeline started to cry less and she became braver.

Cedric the Demonic Knight was an interesting read because of the different kinds of creatures and the good character development. I also liked that there were a few pictures of the creatures in the book! I always love pictures in a book because it gives something extra!

  1. Thank you so much Shirley for reviewing Cedric! Some really great feedback and things I should definitely consider, including a creature list and better pacing in my story-telling. Perhaps I could even think about pulling together a creature guide as a freebie for my readers who want to discover more about my creatures and their origins within the real world. Again, thank you for your time and wonderful review!
