Fantasy, Literature & Fiction, Science Fiction & Space Opera, Teen & Young Adult

Twenty three year old Kylar has finally had enough of the demonic nightmares that have been plaguing him since childhood. Deciding to learn why some of them have turned so sexual, he seeks answers at a close friend’s occult bookstore where she reveals to him that he has been used by demons to father three girls while in a semi-state of sleeping. Soon after, he also learns that he has two estranged sisters that have incredible powers and together they set out on a journey that takes them to literal Hell and back in an effort to rescue his daughters.

While embarking on this quest, he struggles internally with an existing relationship with his current girlfriend. It becomes further complicated when an ex-girlfriend, Sin-dy, that has never given up on the idea that one day they would be together again, also joins him as they face off several times with the demon Ophelexa and her sidekicks.

One of his daughters, a natural born warrior, fifteen year old Amber, becomes an integral part of the battle to take back home not just her siblings, but millions of other teenaged virgin girls held in a ‘Paradise’ in Hell that are destined to be used in a fiendish plot to give birth to more demons and ultimately control all of Earth’s inhabitants.

Risking everything for everyone comes along with a heavy price that is paid by all that set out on this epic battle that has more beginnings than endings.

‘Nightmares about Monsters and Demons, or Dragons as they are sometimes called have plagued me since I was a three-year-old boy’ so begins Silverblood Demons; a dark, fantasy tale that will take its readers on a terrifying journey which explores hell, demons, and a tumultuous quest. I have to admit, I am a sucker for YA and fantasy, so it is no surprise that I have fallen madly in love with Silverblood Demons. Silevrblood Demons is a book that is relentless in its beauty, it is an incredible book that will take it’s readers hostage from the very first page and will refuse to let them go very early on. Of course, many books are able to grasp the reader’s attention, however, none as quick as Silverblood Demons. Silverblood Demons is a rarity because not only does it hook you, it makes you invested in the story as well as it’s characters all while taking you on a thrilling adventure. Never before have I read a fantasy book that was able to make me invested in the story from the first page but when I read the first sentence, I was hooked immediately because already I wanted to know more! I wanted to know who the narrator was, how he has managed to live being plagued by demons and I also wanted to read about the monsters. The fact that I was so invested very early on shows you that Turhan Halil is a talented author whose work is not to be missed!

Silverblood Demons is the story of Kylar and his journey to overcome the demons that taunt him and when he does, he is taken on a dangerous mission which will see him venture into the dark depths of the world – the underworld. Kylar is a twenty-three-year-old man, and I must say, it is refreshing to read a YA novel that does not feature an under 16-year-old! As I was writing, he is a twenty-three-year-old man who has been tormented by demonic nightmares from the age of three. It has affected him in many ways and finally, he says enough! Kylar soon ventures to an occult bookstore to ask his close friend some questions about his disturbing dreams and what she reveals is genuinely shocking as well as frightening. The woman informs Kylar that his dreams were, in fact, real and that he has been used and abused by demons to father three daughters, all while being partially unconscious. Of course, this is a massive shock to Kylar I mean, imagine it! It would be horrendous. However when Kylar learns this the plot of Silverblood Demons starts to unravel, and the reader soon discovers that he has two sisters – both with unique, special powers and that his daughters are trapped in hell, and so the plot thickens! Soon the reader will be taken on a breath-taking, dangerous journey across the world, into hell to rescue his daughters before it is too late and this book lovers is the premise of this phenomenal book.

Silverblood Demons is a book that is not your typical YA read; this is because it features sexual themes as well as demons and hell. It Is, after all, a dark fantasy novel, but I adore how this book could be read by anybody of any age. It is marketed for twelve to 18-year-olds, but I would say that anybody, above the age of 12 could read and fall madly in love with this book, why? Well, it is a brilliant exploration of the unknown. Silverblood Demons is a read to be experienced because it takes its readers on an unpredictable journey. Twists and turns are around every corner and never once will you be able to predict the plot; if you are a reader who does manage to then I implore you to tell me how because I found that it was unpredictable at all points!

The author of Silverblood Demons, Turhan Halil, is a force to be reckoned with. The sheer talent coursing through this man is utterly brilliant. His words are addictive and made me turn the pages quickly as I so desperately wanted to know what was going to happen! Turhan managed to keep me engrossed from beginning to end with the vivid, descriptive world he has so wonderfully created. Because Turhan Halil is a phenomenal writer and his book addictive as hell! I have no choice but to award Silverblood Demons a brilliant Five Stars!

Thanks so much, Aimee, for your review of my novel Silverblood Demons. I truly appreciate the way you broke down the review by sharing your thoughts as to how it made you feel, followed by a tantalizing description of its storyline, then setting up a fun challenge for readers to try and predict the next twist in its tale, then finally ending the review by relating how the author, Turhan (that is, of course, me) inspired you to continue turning the pages. The inspiration behind Silverblood Demons is multi-faceted. I’m the kind of person that loves to express myself via… Read more »
