The Secret Eater
by Ros Jackson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ros Jackson has written a fun read with a quirky cast of characters! The Secret Eater sounds a little different, just by the title and it is! What if your power was to get into someone's head and 'hear' their secrets? Kenssie belongs to a demon who feeds on embarrassment, making them potentially a pretty powerful team, but another demon wants to possess Kenssie and being a slave to a fear demon is not the way to peaceful longevity in her world. When approached by a mysterious witch who says that if she is able to steal a powerful grimoire from an evil demon group, Kenssie may save her own life, that is, if they don't kill her in the process. Can Kenssie find the grimoire? If she does, then what?
This short tale is fast paced and full of fun characters with their own unique attitudes about how to be a demon! Kenssie is quite a character, a little irreverant, feeling rather alone against the world, but gutsy as heck! And her master? He totally fits the embarrassment demon bill,in true demonic style! A fun, fast read!
