Two worlds, divided by a door.

On the war-ravaged demon world of Eriis, Hellne, the fierce young queen, fights to keep her people alive…

On the green and gentle human world of Mistra, the demons have faded into myth. Only a handful of old men and children still guard The Door between the worlds…

Rhuun, the Prince of Eriis, uncovers a forgotten book written by a human, sparking an obsession with the other world. When he is forced to flee Eriis, he must escape through The Door or pay the price in blood.

The humans of Mistra are not what Rhuun was expecting–and one insufferable young woman in particular is about to find out that the demons of Eriis are not mythological after all…

In Kim Alexander’s debut novel she weaves a witty, epic fantasy brimming with diverse characters and plenty of intrigue.

The Demon Door can be opened…but the price is deadly. Rhuun, the half-human heir to the demon throne of Eriis, has found acceptance among the humans on Mistra. He even found love with the tempting and infuriating human, Lelet va’Everly. With Lelet at his side, his ability to create fire has finally awakened, proving that he is not the cursed cripple all of Eriis believed him to be. There are secrets in his blood, unique and powerful…and worth killing for. When Rhuun is betrayed and tricked into returning to Eriis, Lelet has no choice but to turn to exiles, children, and madmen to save him. She must do the impossible: transform herself into a demon and travel to a forgotten city to make an agonizing bargain for his life. Surrounded by dark Mages, a war-hungry Queen, mercurial Goddesses, and enemies on every side, the demon prince and the human woman will find the Court of Eriis a subtle and dangerous place, and one false move could doom them both. Best-selling author Kim Alexander works her magic once again, creating a novel with worlds that are as rich and complex as her characters. The Heron Prince is the second book of The Demon Door series.

Love opens all doors…but betrayal locks them forever.

Newly blessed (or cursed) with wings and fire, Prince Rhuun of the demon realm of Eriis sees hope for his life on the human world of Mistra with his fierce human lover, Lelet va’Everley. She literally went to hell and back to save him, and she’s not about to let anything—or anyone—ruin their perfect future.

All too soon, the claims of family, duty, and justice force Rhuun and Lelet to confront new griefs and old mistakes as they attempt to restore balance to the throne of Eriis. But, with every jealous rumor and each vengeful whisper, friends turn, family schemes, and forgotten enemies creep from the shadows.

Treachery in Eriis and betrayal in Mistra jeopardize what Rhuun and Lelet have fought so hard to build, threatening to tear apart the two lovers, their families, and even their worlds.

SOMETIMES LOVE DOESN’T CHANGE THE WORLD. SOMETIMES IT CHANGES ALL OF THEM.Rhuun, the half-human and wholly-reluctant prince of the demons, has finally reunited with his fiery Lelet. It’s too bad they must hide behind a facade of icy indifference to fool those who are determined to keep demons and humans apart…by any means necessary. There is more at stake than bringing the miracle of rain back to Eriis. It’s not just sand and lost royals poised to come through the newly-opened Door. Something ancient is hungry, and fat, complacent Mistra won’t stand a chance. Even worse, whispers and shadows speak of blood magic that could destroy not just The Door, but all Doors-forever-barring the way home for lovers and enemies alike. Will the love Rhuun and Lelet have moved worlds to share be the very thing they must sacrifice to save their worlds? Full of her signature blend of exquisite world-building, sly humor, and poignant prose, The River King is the gripping conclusion to Kim Alexander’s critically-acclaimed Demon Door saga.

Excerpt

Note that there were four excerpts provided to us tour hosts in a single document that were simply numbered and accompanied by a note from the author about the character she wants us to meet in each. It’s unclear whether the numbers on the excerpts correspond to the four books, all four come from the first book in the series, or all four come from the latest book in the series. Normally we tour hosts are encouraged to pick just one excerpt. As such, I’m picking just one. Sorry to the author if that was not the intent! Readers, visit other stops on the tour to discover the other excerpts.

Excerpt #2:

Moth—now hatless—squinted through the trees. “It’s getting dark. We’ll stop here.” He climbed down from the front of the cart, warily approaching the horse.

She folded her arms and glared at the back of his head. She was hungry, and while having an adventure seemed like an exciting idea, being carted through an empty forest in a dirty cart—there was a distinct smell of garbage—was both boring and a little scary. The only way to get her captor, whatever he was, to talk to her was to provoke him. He was certainly good looking enough to be interesting, but he sat there like a stone, he didn’t pay her any attention at all. And this whole being a demon thing, the thing with his eyes, well, there had to be some trick to it she wasn’t seeing. Rane was going to have to come up with the explanation of a lifetime. She’d deal with Rane in due course, but right now she was in a mood—a Low Snit. And this person—Moth of all things, honestly, what sort of a name was that? —wanted to stop.

“What’s the difference?” she said. “You’re just going to slit my throat and eat my flesh.”

“You might as well be rested when I do.”

“Was that a joke? Are we joking about murdering me now?” Low Snit was quickly escalating.

“I am not going to murder you,” he replied. “I am also not going to eat your flesh, skin you, cut off your hair, cut off your feet . . . what else was it you said before? Oh, I’m not going to make a necklace of your eyeballs. You are very imaginative, though. You should write a book.”

Did he actually think this was funny? He was doing something with the horse, which turned into a slow-motion ballet of him trying to tie the leads to a tree and the horse pulling just ever so slightly far enough away to prevent it. She stalked up behind him and grabbed the leads away and secured the animal, which calmed down when he moved away from it.

“I am so glad you can see the humor in dragging me off in the night and throwing me in a filthy wagon. Or did you not do that, either?” she snapped.

He looked up from fiddling with a collection of rocks. He was making a pile, like a small pyramid, with bigger stones at the bottom. “I am to deliver you. That’s all.”

She knew he wouldn’t say where or to whom, having asked more than twice. “What are you doing? With those rocks?” she asked, more out of frustration with his behavior than actual curiosity. After all, how many different things could you do with rocks?

“It will be cold tonight. I’m going to light them,” he told her. Unsatisfied with their formation, he carefully rearranged several near the top. As he did, the form collapsed. He again said something that sounded like rush toe or rich tea, and started over.

She barked a laugh. “Light them? Do you think they’re made of wood?”

“There isn’t much wood where I come from.” This time the pile seemed to be the right size and shape, and he sat back on his heels and brushed the dirt off his hands.

“On the other side of The Door,” she said, hoping to catch him in a lie. But he was sticking with the demon thing and said, “Well, obviously we don’t call it that.”

She put her fists on her hips. “What do you call it?”

He looked back at the rocks, did something with his hands, and they began to glow. “It’s called Eriis. We call it home.”
