Reign Check [Rowen]

Book: Reign Check [Demon Princess #2]
Author: Michelle Rowen

Review: Nikki Donovan just found out she is a Demon Princess and her best friend could possibly be a demon slayer. She is looking forward going back to high school and acting like a regular human for awhile, when Rhys, the young king of faery, enrolls in her school as an 'exchange student.' He tells Nikki there is a dark prophecy about her and he is there to observe her for himself. Nikki starts to have conflicting feelings for Rhys as she spends time with him, which complicates her (forbidden) relationship with Michael. Meanwhile, she is summoned to the Otherworld to discuss the prophecy.

This book was much better than book 1 for one distinct reason: Rhys. He is the young, handsome faery king with quick wit and a snarky personality. He reminds me of Adrian (from Vampire Academy and Bloodlines fame) a little bit. He and Nikki actually made me chuckle out loud a few times and he really comes alive on the pages. Rowen has set up a love triangle now between Nikki, Michael and Rhys. I just cannot get behind Michael. Other than the fact that he protects Nikki, there is nothing to him. Zero personality. He isn't interesting. Rhys, on the other hand, is funny and charming! I cannot wait to read the next book to see how things play out **spoiler alert** considering Rhys has re-enrolled in school and may be dating Melinda now. Let the fun begin!
