Review: Chase The Dark (Steel and Stone #1) by Annette Marie

Posted on Updated on

Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way.

The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?

The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.

And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.

Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.

Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Fiction

This review contains no spoilers

I liked this book! Though I have to admit that it took me a while to really get into the book. It definitely gets better towards the end and there are a lot of plot twists.
This book is told from Piper’s point of view. Piper is a heamon, a heamon is half deamon half human. Normally heamons posess magical powers, Piper is the only heamon without magical powers. Piper’s biggest dream is to become a Consul but that’s a problem since she’s a heamon without magical powers.

I’m still not sure what to think of Piper. She’s badass but sometimes she can be a bit annoying.
But her two sidekicks.

Her sidekicks are amazing. They are deamons called Lyre and Ash. Lyre is a big flirt, I love him, he’s adorable. But Ash is really badass and I love him as well. So I’m torn between Lyre and Ash, I might like one of them a tiny bit better but I still don’t know who to pick. Though Piper has two male sidekicks, this book biggest focus isn’t romance.

If you like the fantasy/supernatural genre I’d definitely recommend this book to you, it also has a lot of humor in it so it’s fun to read. I can’t wait to read the second book!
