I'm bound to a demon.
For my entire life, I avoided magic at all costs. Now, I'm responsible for a demon who wields magic more powerful than the toughest mage or sorcerer.
Demons are evil.
That's what my textbooks say. That's what I see. He's ruthless, he's temperamental, he's cold. But he protects me without fail. I wonder if he's hiding a heart behind his hostility.
My demon is a monster.
Whether he's heartless or not, my contract with him is illegal and beyond dangerous. Together, we must find a way to return him to his own world before anyone discovers our secret. If that wasn't bad enough, I've come to realize something else:
My demon isn't the only monster I should be worried about.

Robin has promises she needs to keep to fulfill her contract (what little contract there is) with her demon. Her search brings her up against a very strong foe and could totally reveal her secret to her guild. She also is having a hard time dealing with her demon. She keeps expecting, or wishing her demon would show empathy. But time after time, she is disappointed.
I had a good time with Robin and her demon. They made for an exciting adventure. Robin’s demon is unpredictable so you never know how situations were going to play out. I felt like there is a side of him that has emotions and I can’t help but like him. Robin learns new things and gets closer to getting her mother’s grimoire back. Hopefully that will help her find a way to save her demon. But getting it back isn’t as easy as it initially seems.
Slaying Monsters For The Feeble was a lot of fun and had great adventure for our characters. The ending has me really interested in how the two sides of the Guild Codex series are going to mesh. I’m really hoping that they all accept her. I love how the Spellbound and Demonized are playing side by side and we have this character overlap. A story that is completely mixed is in the works, I just know it!
