The terrible Black Lord of the Underworld is locked out of the green and living Overworld by seven wards set by ancient mages. This evil fallen God cannot rise to break these wards so he must twist and trick a human to do it for him. A woman is taken to the Underworld and her son cut from her womb. Raised by cruel demons and other creatures, this boy is named Bane. Vicious tortures and wicked tests make him strong as he grows. He looks to the Black Lord as his father, who imbues Bane with dark p [...]

Hes named Bane and raised and tortured to be well the worst he can be so he can one day take over the world for his dear father. (im joking he hates his father and everything else)Some group of magical women,learns of evil gods plan and decideds to [...]
Well, I really want to read the second book in the series; I guess that means that this was a rather good book.The beginning was very clumsy. It was a rather typical way to give some background into the plot so that it appears to not be so sudden, but it just seemed cheesy to me. It took me a while to get into the story, as I was mostly unconvinced by this beginning; something about how it was just a lot of clichés without really giving all too much background, and trying to make us feel concer [...]
Demon Lord, worth a read just! I have an interest in reading the work of some of those relatively unknown authors on kindle - you know, the ones whose books are very cheap or free. I'm interested because I will probably be listed as one of them eventually (when I get around to finishing one of my novels). So, recently I scanned the wide range of such ebooks and I came across Demon Lord by TC Southwell.Demon Lord is the first book of a fantasy series that follows the quest of son of the underwo [...]
I love fantasy stories about humans fighting against demons. This one is the reverse with the Demon Lord Bane fighting to take over the Human race. What is really great is the that the protagonist is not only a perfect villain, but he is what he hates, a human. The story is very exciting and there is a lot of fighting and adventure. I think young people will enjoy it because it gives the reader a prospective of the enemy's POV. I think dark fantasies are in a league of their own.
Underworld and Overworld! A demon able to bind the two! Bane is pure evil and he is powerful, he is the Demon Lord, and only one person stands in the way; a young girl, a healer.I thoroughly enjoyed this and have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars. As with all T.C. Southwell’s books, this is well written and imaginative. I will be reading more of her work!
A fantasy about the Underworld and the Overworld and the release of the Dark Lord.
Disclaimer: Okay, so I'm a big fan of the whole "Big Bad Guy falls in love with Innocent, Beautiful Maiden, and gets Reformed" plotline. I'm talking really big fan. No matter what you do with it -- bring it to the future, stand it on its head, slather whipped cream and jalapenos all over it -- I'm still there.I was prepared to love this book with all my heart. I was willing to forgive the fact that I could predict the ending from the first couple of pages. I was ready to overlook the moments whe [...]
I am not really sure how I feel about this horror fantasy. It is really an extensive intro into a series of books, and I have interest in finding out what happens. Mirra is a healer who can heal and stop pain in herself and others, so long as she is able to renew her energy in sunlight. She is captured by the Bane, the Demon Lord, reputed to be the son of the Dark Lord (who is held in the Underworld by magic wards throughout the Overworld - the human world) In truth, Bane was a human baby torn f [...]
I read this book a few months ago, and I still remember how much I enjoyed it -- definitely a good thing! The thing I loved most about this book was that the characters were actually *realistic*. Usually when you read a book, and you get the "son of a demon hell-bent on destroying the world", and he meets an innocent girl, he immediately starts caring about her, second-guessing himself, doing nice things, etc. Not so in this book! Bane actually acts like the son of a demon lord should act -- he' [...]
I just flew through this book! It was great! I loved how T.C. Southwell writes and makes my imagination go wild!!!! It really made a great cliff hanger and I can't wait to read the second book! I am hoping for more MirraxBane moments. I ship them so hard it's not even funny. This book is great for people who love fantasy, demons, religion, action, and a little bit of romance. It was really funny at some points but other than that it was great! Great introduction! I just hope to see more Mirra an [...]
oh my god! What a gruesome, frustrating, disgusting, annoying, loooong book.I couldn't stand how the violence was almost non-stop and extremely graphic.The only reason why I gave "Demon Lord" 2 stars was because despite how graphic it was, I really wanted to find out what eventually happened to Mirrad I was sadly disappointed. It ended with an annoying cliff hanger prompting you to read the next books. UGH!I will definitely not be reading the next book. I feel like I just wasted my time reading [...]
wooow wooow wooow after I read this book I knew I had to get the next one. Bane was so ruthless and powerful that I fell in love almost immediately. and Mirra was also patient and compassionate, she wasn't like any heroine I have ever read about. she was not annoying but very likeableter reading this book I new, I just new deep down in my heart of hearts that I had to get the next one. truly a masterpiece. I highly recommend it to anyone who can read.
I thought this book was a lot shallower than Southwell's other stories. The characters are very generic: the good girl with healing powers and lots of love and innocence, the bad guy from Hell, and the guy who tries to be bad but will be good in the end. Come on. It was also very predictable. I assume that this is one of the author's first books- I haven't looked at the publishing dates- but it is certainly not up to par with what Southwell can produce.
Free on Kindle: I finished this book because I needed to know how the story ended. Disappointed because you have to buy the next book, this one just ended. I story was drawn out, the author spared no words in telling this tale. Author captured my attention, enjoyed the book, just not my favorite.
Really liked this book. This author has a habit of a pattern for the first book of a series - non-sexual guy, a healer of some sort (someone who can't be injured), and tons of sexual frustration.I still very much enjoyed this book. I loved the whole world we were brought into.The end is very much a cliffhanger that pulls you into the next installment.
Plays off mythology in a good versus evil battle for the fate of the world. It is violent for violence sake in several areas and narrative. The challenges faced by the characters are entertaining, but nothing new. The main characters are too one faceted for my taste which is understandable in the this context, but so much so that I had a hard time suspending belief in certain instances.
It’s good to see local fantasy talent blooming, and, although I’m not a lover of the black and white version of ‘good versus evil’, I loved Demon Lord. Anyone who enjoys fantasy filled with deceit, betrayal and a little romance thrown in on the side will enjoy Demon Lord.
For some reason the characters and the setting just didn't catch me. The characters came off as flat and two dimentional. The setting was run of the mill. The situation was standard "evil has been kept in check by an artifact which is destroyed over the course of the story".
While I did enjoy the read it was very slow. I started reading this because I have read most of TC's books. I will read the next and decide if I would like to read all 6 or so books. I am hoping that this takes a turn for the better.
I don't expect much from free books, but this one was a gem. Lots of fighting, great twist on demons, and I loved the main characters. Definitely need to get the sequel to finish the story, though.
3.5 Stars.This is a very good epic fantasy ebook, considering the fact that the author is indie and has written over 20 books while working a real job. That's quite impressive.
This series is AMAZING!! Very well written it starts off slow and then sucks you right in!!
Not bad of a book. Has a slight tinge of BDSM to it
Long story which just wants you to get into the next book. :o)
A bit slow for my taste but interesting enough to keep me reading the series. I am sure that what follows will be better
This book was terrible, I'll admit it had a couple of interesting parts butDo Not read this book, not worth it.
