I never thought I’d be singing happy birthday to myself in the dungeon. And yet, when a sinfully sexy demon crashes happy hour, that’s exactly what happens. Known as the Lord of Chaos, he mistakes me for my double succubus.
Happy Birthday to me
As he tastes my blood, he finally understands that I am mortal. And I realize that we have something in common: we both yearn for revenge. So we make a deal: I can stay in the Forbidden City to hunt down my mother’s killer.
In exchange, I will help him get the revenge he craves. I just have to pose like a sexy succubus. One problem: he’s my prime suspect.
And that becomes more and more difficult for me as he teaches me my role: seduction. With each heated touch I drift further into danger. And if I fall under her seductive spell, death awaits me.

I have read some C.N. Crawford, and he either really enjoyed them or got bored, not in between. That was an “intermediate” for me.
The concept of the world is interesting, although difficult to imagine. The setting is described briefly but not in depth, leaving his imagination to fill in the blanks.
Rowan is a fun character. His internal dialogue made me laugh at times, and his tendency to fear bordering on madness is endearing. I have empathized with his real life problems, his hope for his future and his drive to eradicate the person responsible for his mother’s death.
Orion was just delicious. The spark and the banter between him and Rowan, exciting! They definitely seem like an unlikely pair of allies.
Plot-wise, the pace was pretty fast. I wish the book was longer to tie the events together more seamlessly. Moods, attitudes, events, etc. they often change abruptly, making a situation feel unrealistic or ridiculous. The characters went through dramatic changes where each logical being would react differently. This pattern makes it difficult for me as a reader to fully immerse myself in the story to experience it on a deeper level. This book evokes some emotions at times. If more time had been spent developing the depth of the characters and smoothing out the plot, the book would have been much more impressive.
Fortunately I have some unanswered questions, so I will continue with the second book in the series. What exactly WAS Orion’s history with Mortana? HOW did he “torture” him? Was that emotional torture? I am not drawing any conclusion that Rowan IS Mortana. I feel like we’re missing a lot of historical context, so I’m hoping to find the answers.
You know that feeling when you scream into your pillow because you’re feeling too many emotions and you just have to let them out?
This book made me feel that.
City of Thorns was a real page turner. By the time I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I read it along with another book that I really enjoy and yet it was a struggle for me to stop reading that book. The tension, The atmosphere, the chemistry between characters, the passion! I loved everything about it.
The demons in this book behave like real demons, some extremely vain, some selfish, all dangerous. Even Orion, the love interest of this amazing book, is a demon with a capital “D”. He’s sexy as hell, with a nice British accent and piercing eyes, but never forget that underneath it all lurks a dangerous creature. Possessed of deadly grace and honesty, he proves on multiple occasions that he is the real deal. It was so refreshing to read.
Demons are often idealized in such a way that they are reduced to the role of a brooding love interest. But the author portrayed Orion exactly how I like it. Redeemable? Yes. Dangerous? Also if. But even so, Orion and Rowan’s interaction never felt toxic or unbalanced. It never felt like he was foisting it on her in all his demonic glory, which I really appreciated.
I love him? Positive.
As you can see, I have a lot of feelings for Orion, but I haven’t forgotten about Rowan, the main character. She is wonderful. Tough, smart, normal young woman who throws herself into a dangerous role to uncover the truth about her mother’s murder and doesn’t shy away from reasoning with a demon even though he’s…well, really scary. I loved how she took control of the narrative and did everything in her power to get out of difficult and scary situations.
And finally the plot. The plot was mysterious and interesting. The fact that I was very interested in the interactions between Rowan and Orion didn’t distract me from uncovering the mystery behind Rowan’s mother’s death and also what Orion’s endgame was in relation to the king. Although I started to develop some theories, and I have many more for the sequel! – I was completely surprised by the turn of the events. And devastated. And so excited for the sequel that I need right away!
In short, I have one more book to add to my favorites.
I recommend it to all lovers of romance! This book was totally phenomenal and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
