Demon's Captive Mate (Court of the Hollow King Book 1) by Sera Bishop

"The wind steals his words away, leaving only their two bodies walking as one...." Demon's Captive Mate.

From the blurb:

I’m a demon soldier with blood on my hands. He’s a gentle angel healer. Our bond was an accident, but now I’ll kill to keep him safe.

I’ve been a soldier of Hell for a hundred years, immersed in bloodshed and carnage. Then a terrible battle leaves me on the brink of death. To save my life, I’m brought to Vasia, Hell’s enslaved angel healer.

The first time Vasia touches me, our souls entwine in a mating bond. It should be impossible. But I can’t deny the pull, no matter how much I want to. I need him. I crave his touch. And no one in Hell’s treacherous Court can know.

Barren and denied a mate by his own people, Vasia embraces our bond like he’s starved for it. He shows me tenderness I thought no longer existed in the world. He believes in the man I could be instead of the demon I am. I’d do anything to keep him from harm—even defy the King of Hell himself.

But angels can’t live in Hell, and Vasia’s survival depends on the most dangerous thing of all. The one thing I don’t believe in. The one thing I can’t give him.



The Court of the Hollow King is an MM romance series set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy universe, with omegaverse style dynamics—heats, soul bonding, big alphas and their feisty mates. There is no on-page mpreg but it exists in the world. Each book is a standalone romance, but the series has an overarching plot and is best read in order.

Miki J's Review:

Demon's Captive Mate is a very intriguing story which grabbed my attention from the start. This story has angel/demon, fated- mates, size difference, Alpha/Omega (mpreg- but there's none of that in this story) tropes covered - in a futuristic/dystopian type setting.   

I just really enjoyed this story - author wove a fantastic tale that just caught my attention and I couldn't put the book down. There's drama, mid-angst, two MC's who are not acting/being the way they are supposed to be - outcasts even... and trying to be there for each other during times of conflict, political upheaval and war.  

Can't wait to see what's next !
