This may come as a complete shock to you guys but I know a thing or two about urban fantasy Not too much mind you but enough to recognize a good UF novel when I read one Here’s what I can tell you Diana Rowland is one of the best Whenever I get my hands on her latest novel I’m absolutely certain that I will enjoy it immensely Sins of the Demon picks up just a few weeks after the great discovery at the end of the third book Now that she finally knows what he is Kara would like nothing than to try and figure out all the details concerning Ryan but she’s too busy saving her own life and career Someone is killing people from Kara’s past people she had every reason to hate There isn’t a doubt in her mind that the deaths are connected but she doesn’t know whether the killer wants to frame her or simply do her a favor At the same time someone from the demon realm is trying to summon Kara oh the irony but unlike the demons Kara summons she will not get the chance for a fair bargain If they succeed she will be nothing than a slave to a demonic lord and it certainly won’t be one as lenient as Rhyzkahl Here’s another thing that might surprise you I hate love triangles with a fiery passion I usually say that there’s no such thing as a good love triangle and it is my firm opinion that there isn’t a good reason for an author to introduce one But you see that’s not entirely true and Diana Rowland made me eat my words She managed to write a love triangle that I actually enjoy one that isn’t too angsty that makes perfect sense and is in fact uite necessary for the story I’ll write just a few words about the characters because that’s really where Rowland’s strength lies Well that the awesome plots and the simple yet intriguing worldbuilding After reading this novel I can honestly say that I want to be Kara Gillian when I grow up She is now skilled confident but still has the good sense to run in fear when she’s out of her league – which happens often when you’re in the business of summoning demons As for Ryan and Rhyzkahl oh dear fans self I wouldn’t mind being in a position to choose between the two at all As for the other characters it is clear that Rowland takes the time to build each one even the really unimportant ones They all come alive for me every single time But this also needs to be said I absolutely despise cliffhanger endings A fourth book of the series either has a steady audience or it doesn’t I simply refuse to believe that a cliffhanger influences this in any way I took one star off my rating only because of that Otherwise this would have been a perfect 5 star urban fantasy and I don’t give 5 stars to UF novels all that often In fact Hounded by Kevin Hearne is the only one I can remember If you love urban fantasy or simply enjoy reading one from time to time make sure to put this on your tbr Each book is better than the last For this review and please visit The Nocturnal Library

REVIEW Sins of the Demon

Sins of the DemonYzkahl is still interested in her for reasons she can't fathom and now someone in the demon realm is trying to summon her And there's no way that can end wellMeanwhile people who've hurt Kara in the past are dropping dead Kara is desperate to find the reasons for the deaths to clear her own name but when she realizes ther. Things I should not do review this book immediately after reading it That sort of thing colours your perceptions and prevents objectivityThings I am going to do any way review this book immediately after reading it Holy mother of crud on a fish cracker but I thought the last Demons book ended on a cliff hanger I'd go and spoil it for you but nah you should just go read it If you liked the first three you'll like this one too demons new and old secrets some answers but way uestions But seriously this plot is dangling by its fingernails the ledge is crumbling and the sharks of suspense are circling below blah blah plot summary blah Peeps from the demon realm are trying to summon demon summoner Kara to the demon realm to enslave her because they are totes jealous of her new summoning contract with sexy demon lord Ryhzkhal Also people Kara has no reason to like and every reason to dislike are ending up weirdly dead Kara also adopts a cat and Ryan does that thing where he is a huge crotch wad but Kara simultaneously forgives him and calls him on it because she wants to run her fingers through his hair Eilahn is awesomeDisappointments include fewer sexytimes That's pretty much it so I hope you weren't reading only for some inter planar bumping of uglies because not so much of that this time Also this one is sliding a little further out from the police procedural genre although I'm not surely this is a disappointment so much Other disappointments include that cover which seems better suited to tentacle hentai than this book note do not look that up if you don't already know what it is Or at least don't look it up at work Thank goodness I've got it as an ebookThe mysteries have shifted away from monster of the week murders to the larger plot bunnies that have been simmering below the surface the last three books We are now familiar enough with the characters and setting to do some good background chewing and delve deeper into the relationships This is the traditional point in a series where it will either descend into melodramatic badness or the melodrama will only serve to make it awesome I'm putting my bet on awesome as Rowland seems to be able to contain the impulse to add lots of angst and fluff that doesn't contribute to the story There are some entertaining fluff sections for sure but all that fluff goes I to stuffing for filling out the world Plus she follows the most important rule of not wasting her characters by which I mean that everything in this installment was well set up for in the previous books I am always irritated when series drag on and authors decide to dredge up some backstory they conveniently forgot to mention in the first 4 books or so just so that they'll have a plot for the new one I'm looking at you Jeaniene Frost Don't give me that look you know what you did Surprise delights This one was actually kind of funny Eilahn is officially my fantasy room mate and I kind of love every second she is on the page Rating 5 stars in a fit of post cliff hanger frothing to be later downgraded to 4 once I sit back to think that it maybe wasn't as good as some other book I gave 5 stars to and then later shamefacedly re upgraded
