Genre: Middle Grade Urban Fantasy Publisher Type: Traditional My Rating: * * * * * My Review: So I had a huge dilemma in rating DemonKeeper. As I read it, I read it as a Middle Grade story and LOVED it!!! It's such a fun and enchanting read! But the main character is 16, putting DemonKeeper in the YA range. As a YA novel, it falls short of the depth of character and story I expect out of YA literature. But as a Middle Grade novel, it's perfect! So I decided to categorize DemonKeeper as Middle Grade and rate it as such. Yay for 5 stars!!!! So what did I love? I loved the world Royce Buckingham created! It's so creative and fun!!! The house and all it's various occupants were amazing. The ragtag group of Nat's demon assistants were perfect! And while his nemisis, the Thin Man, was a bit flat, his minions were crazy interesting. I enjoyed Nat's character growth and his developing relationships, both new and old; it's what makes this book truly spectacular. The end made me cry and was sooooo very well done. I have the next two books on my kindle and I look forward to seeing what becomes of Nat and his friends.show moreby Danielle Smiley
