*Disclaimer: I won a free copy of The Bazaar. It was not in exchange for a review.
Genre – Urban Fantasy
Devany Miller is an average woman. She has a husband she loves, a job she feels makes a difference, and two children who are her world. However, nothing can last forever, and Devany’s world spirals when a freak accident at the Bazaar leaves her with a witch, an assassin spider, and a magic heart inside of her. When a demon confronts her about having his spider and magic heart, Devany finds herself even deeper in an unknown world as she becomes the demon’s assassin. Caught up in a world of magic and demons that she knows nothing about, Devany desperately does whatever it will take to keep her children safe from the dangers lurking about. To make matters worse, Devany’s marriage has fallen apart. Without the slightest idea what she’s doing, Devany must protect the innocents, learn magic, and deal with an Originator demon.
The Bazaar is full of twists and turns. Every time poor Devany turns around some new awful thing is happening. This story had so much going on that I didn’t want to put it down. The characters were fantastic. Devany is a caring mother and has a fierce protective side. She’s constantly doing things she should not do because she’s running blind in this world of magic since no one has told her any rules. Jennifer Ponce has created exciting and intriguing worlds and a whole host of great creatures. My favorite is definitely Neutria, the bloodthirsty assassin spider. She is a badass even if she is a little crazy. A close second is definitely Tytan though. Although he is a demon, he has a sweet side. And a sexy one, which he loves to torment Devany with. The worlds are well explained, and I could easily imagine they were real. This book is a great start to the Devany Miller Series, and I absolutely recommend reading all of them. There are three books out currently, and I will be reviewing the others in the not-too-distant future.
