Demorn: Blade of Exile (The Asanti #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Demorn will go anywhere, sell her blade to the gods themselves, to resurrect her dead girlfriend's soul!

Demorn has been the exile of dead world since she was thirteen. Reality has been infected, setting up different Universes and wiping the memories of the population throughout past and present. Her birthplace, Asanti was destroyed in aftershocks. It’s known as the Fracture Event.

She belongs to the Innocents, a Clubhouse of mercenaries and assassins based inside the future city of Babelzon.

Uncovering a terrifying conspiracy of multi-dimensional demon gods hiding in plain sight, she must risk everything in a desperate quest for something bigger than a bounty if Babelzon and everything she loves are to be saved!

"A vivid lead character and a crazy-brilliant core premise make this more than just another action-wracked high concept thriller. But it's ALL THAT too!" (Chuck Dixon, writer of Batman, Bad Times series)

"Aeon Flux on steroids!" (Will Greenway, writer of the Ring Realm Series)

DEMORN: BLADE OF EXILE is Book One in The Asanti Series, a new dark fantasy action series starring Demorn, Wandering Princess of the Swords!

DEMORN: CITY OF INNOCENTS, Book Two in the Asanti Series, is also out NOW on Amazon and Kindle UNLIMITED.

Book Three, DEMORN: SOUL FIGHTER, is coming later in 2016.

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Demorn: Blade of Exile (The Asanti #1)

This was a fantasy story, featuring a character called Demorn.

I don’t know where to start with this book, I found the whole thing so confusing I’m not sure what to say!

Demorn was mortal, had amazing fighting skills, liked girls, and could travel through time, and that’s about as much as I could gather really. I had real problems because I felt like I couldn’t really get a feel for her, or even understand what exactly she was, which really put a dampener on things.

The storyline in this was all over the place. We kept getting battles with different people, we had Demorn travelling through time, fighting battles, somehow becoming some sort of princess, and I found it really hard to follow. We had characters who wouldn’t stay dead, new characters popping up out of nowhere (or so it felt), and nowhere near enough world building. I felt like I had been thrown in at the deep end and it was sink or swim – and I just sank unfortunately.

I don’t really know what else to say, other than that after days of trying to get through this I just feel like this wasn’t the right book for me. I am interested to see what my reading buddies make of it though.
