44932446._SY475_Rule one: Don’t look at the demon.

When I arrived at my uncle’s house, I expected my relatives to be like me—outcast sorcerers who don’t practice magic. I was right about the sorcery, but wrong about everything else.

Rule two: Don’t listen to the demon.

My uncle chose a far deadlier power. He calls creatures of darkness into our world, binds them into service contracts, and sells them to the highest bidder. And I’m supposed to act like I don’t know how illegal and dangerous it is.

Rule three: Don’t talk to the demon.

All I had to do was keep my nose out of it. Pretend I didn’t find the summoning circle in the basement. Pretend I didn’t notice the shadowy being trapped inside it. Pretend I didn’t break the rules.

But I did, and now it’s too late.


From the author of The Guild Codex: Spellbound comes a new series that will plunge an unprepared young woman into the darkest magic of the mythic world.

Taming Demons for Beginners is a New Adult Epic Urban Fantasy.

I genuinely loved this story. I had thought that this book might’ve been a bust, but I’m so glad that I read Taming Demons for Beginners! This novel was my first Annette Marie novel and I’m so happy that this story came across my IG stories.

I absolutely love that it takes place in Vancouver, the big city that is just a stones throw away from me!

The banter between Robin and Zylas two of them was great to read about, and I just really enjoy their vibe. Everyone underestimates the two of them, and I love how they end up kicking some major ass proving them wrong.

The only thing that I didn’t like was that–this was implied and not simply stated–there is only one type of bookworm? And that all bookworms retain the knowledge of the books they read? I’m sitting here trying my best to not feel shitty–and failing–about not remembering every single book I’ve read, and what they were about. Like? This still hurts damn it LOL.

I really liked the flow of the story, and I admire how smooth the story overall was.

All in all Taming Demons for Beginners is 5 star read from me!
