About The Book

Daniyal Zaman is an expert in running away.

Case in point: Last summer, I hid out for three days in a stranger’s bedroom so I didn’t have to deal with the Demonica Weekly photographers swarming the street, or my four nosy grandmothers (don’t ask), or that stupid viral video of me crying on the dance floor.

And when I began to like my sweet host a lot more than I should, I retreated to Earth and threw myself into 3D modelling for video games.

Now my nani and grandma have summoned me to host their seventh anniversary ball on New Year’s Eve, and I can’t say no.

Even if it means working with the event architect Surrith—who just so happens to be the handsome demon I ghosted six months ago.

A Demon at Midnight is a 13k sweet holiday romance with a HEA. This is a spin-off of The Vampire Stayed for Breakfast, but can be read as a standalone.

The Review

This was a nice read. I loved the demon world the author built, and the sweet relationship between the main characters.

Short stories are often rushed, but although I’d have loved to have had more story (that’s always the case with me and shorts that I’ve enjoyed) I believe the author did a good job making the story feel complete.

I was a litt;e confused about the grandmothers and the breakup scene at the beginning of the book. Since I haven’t read book one of the series, I believe that was probably the main issue.

I won’t go on about wanting more from a short story, because of course, had the author given us that, it wouldn’t be a short… but as way of a compliment, I will say, I WANTED MORE!

I would recommend this story especially if you’ve enjoyed book one.

Overall, I thought the story was delightful.
