Good Reads of 2012: DEMONS AT DEADNIGHT

Demons At Deadnight
By A&E Kirk

Rating: 5

“Ironic, is it not, that the great Divinicus Nex cowers in fear from that which should be her fated prey? A decidedly diametric circumstance."

What? It's irritating when the monster hunting you has a better vocabulary than your own. Maybe it could do my eulogy?” 

It's bad enough getting chased by demons. But demons with exceptional vocabularies? That just burns.

Aurora's been chased by demons, ever since her near-fatal accident. Why do they chase her? She doesn't know. All she knows is that they're always hot on her metaphorical tail, ugly and like to play with their food before they eat it. Food being Aurora, or the occasional stray yapping puppy. 

Returning to a town she doesn't remember might be a nice change of scenery. Except it's not the scenery that's caught her attention.

It's the devilish and motley group of 'Hex Boys'. These guys are more tight-lipped than the FBI, and with more secrets to boot - plus, they come with a truckload of good looks and wit. Is it Aurora's imagination or do they know more they're letting on about the supernatural going-ons of the town? Going-ons that, until now, Aurora seems to be the only one noticing?

Oh, and she might light up like a Christmas tree at times. Yep - useful superpower? Check.

As demons threaten her family, childhood memories rise to the surface and tensions grow thick, Aurora needs to make a decision - whether to have nothing to do with the Hex Boys and to face the demons alone, or to trust in them and rely on their protection. Her life, and the life of her family, hang in the balance.

But are they 'Protective Hotties' or 'Charismatic Killers'?

Aurora doesn't know, but what she does know is that her new-found abilities need to be kept a secret. Not only from her family, but from the Hex Boys themselves...and even the one she's fallen hard for. 

Because if Aurora turns out to be the next Divinicus Nex, there'll be more than demons hunting her down.

My thoughts

AMAZING!! I'm in love with a book that take you on a thrilling journey - plagued with demons, hot guys, visions and bonfires, this book will have you begging for more!!


I love you 'Mr Exotic'. From the moment you literally 'fell' into Aurora's life I was like "Please, please - let every chapter have him in it!!" My prayers were answered. Ayden's wit cannot be faulted and his flirtatious manner is heart-melting. And knee melting. :D


Him with his Aussie accent (even though technically we Australians don't HAVE an accent - but that's an argument for another time...!) and Milo drinking. And brooding. God, did he brood. But you have to love the over-protective types!

Everytime Aurora walked into the room, he turned the charm on and was all like:


Smartest guy out there...except not very socially apt. :D Note: don't talk about the science of puberty, Jayden. Ev-er.


So cute!

And there might be another guy I forgot, but he was forgettable. I think it was Logan. Forgive me, Logan!!! His bow and arrow scene was pretty hot, though:D

Overall READ people - this book was excellent and the Hex Boys are to die for. ;P
