YMMV / Dark Heavens

  • Magnificent Bastard: The Demon King. Granted, it's probably in the job description. The climax of Heaven to Wudang drives the point home.
  • Mary Sue: Emma, a young white Australian nanny who falls in love with a Chinese god and quickly develops magical powers along the way. Some of the Goodreads reviews believe that Emma is an Author Avatar for Kylie Chan herself as Chan is actually a white woman who married a Chinese man.
  • Squick: Was it really necessary to describe turtle sexuality in Demon Child?
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The author mentioned in the foreword that this series was getting shelved in the YA section by some retailers. It's roughly as kid-friendly as A Song of Ice and Fire.
