Book Review for Taming Demons for Beginners

With the passing of Robin’s parents, she ends up living with her uncle until their wills are settled. Raised to avoid magic she didn’t expect to find a demon in the basement. A very illegal demon in the basement. Skirting around rude family members and illegal activities was not Robin’s plan. But if her uncle keeps dodging her questions about the will, she might as well poke around the demon. After all, it’s in a summoning circle, it can’t hurt her, right? 

Having the chance to see Robin’s origins as a demon summoner was fantastic! She has a sad start having lost her parents before the story even begins. And she is such a timid character! While she tries to stand up for herself, she’s just learning how to do so. Unfortunately, this means people talk around her and verbally push her around. Such a vast difference from Tori in the Spellbound world of Guild Codex. I can’t wait to see the character development in store for Robin in future novels!

And Robin's baking treats to share and enjoy with others was so wholesome. It broke my heart when family members didn’t appreciate it. Yet Robin found an uncommon ally who loved her baked goods. 

Zylas is an alluring morally gray character. He has his own plans and toys within the bounds of his contract. While he won’t hesitate to eliminate a threat, there are moments he seems to hold back. But it might just be that he does this for his own enjoyment. But no matter where Robin and Zylas go, there is sure to be entertaining chaos in their wake.

Taming Demons for Beginners is the start of The Guild Codex: Demonized series. Readers familiar with the world will see fun cameos from Crow and Hammer guild members, as this book lines up with a previous tale. Taking Robin’s timid character and pairing her up with a troublemaker is sure to create intense interactions. And I can’t wait to read about it.
