Being captain of his own rescue ship is the life Liam Synar has always dreamed of living. Being master of a hereditary demon is not. Coveting Malachi's power, his exiled evil brother hunts him to capture the demon that Liam's life mate unknowingly hosts. Putting Malachi inside Ania two years ago had been an act to save her when she almost died saving him. If only the demon hadn't killed again.

Work as a Senior Business Analyst in a large global company. I love reading and now listening to books while I'm on the go.
I have just started listening to Audible books… this is my second book and I must admit I am thoroughly addicted! I had to make the time to sit down and read before..….. but with Audible, I plug my earphones into my iphone and off I go doing my housework, gardening, walking or driving to work!
I’m just disappointed I never tried this before now!
The narrator’s voice captures the characters personalities well, especially the sarcasm and humour between Malachi and Ania – I feel I have a good visualisation of how these characters look. The narrators voice is exceptionally clear and easy to listen too - making it easy to differentiate between the characters.
This book is fast paced, has multiple planets, species whom have various amazing abilities of a spaceship transporting ambassadors for the peace into the depths of space – The book is very well written and keeps you engaged due to the strong storyline which really builds up and sets the scene for the other books which follow (I have read the other follow on books and I can truly say that all the follow on stories are brilliant) The characters all have wildly different abilities and characteristics which makes a truly good fictional read/listen. Other members of the crew are engaged in their own romantic predicaments making the book both humorous and emotive at the same time. The next books really get into the depths of the story.
Defiantly Ania, she is cool, calm, wise, strong (Physically and emotionally) and collected and I like the relationship which forms Malachi and Ania together – through no choice of their own. Their story becomes interesting and it’s great to see what they achieve together.
From the breathtaking beauty of the various unusual Planets & Characters from across the various galaxies, the spectacular world of Donna McDonald Demon of Synar comes to life as never seen before. Soar among the spaceships into galaxy never visited and seen before – Imagine yourself as Ania who is a wise warrior woman century’s old and immerse yourself in the greatest adventure of all time, as Captain Liam Synar quest for reclamation leads him on an epic journey beyond your imagination!
Fantasy science fiction is not my usual genre but I am glad I listened to this book as it has opened up my imagination and I thoroughly enjoyed the book/s. I have subsequently started reading other similar authors who write in the same genre. Donna McDonald is now one of my favourite authors, all her books are well writen, fun characters and a joy to read/relax.
Wasn't sure what to expect from a romance novel with the word 'demon' in the title, but I listened to it anyway.I was pleasantly surprised. The story line is interesting and I love that the listener get a glimpse inside the minds of the main characters. I felt completely drawn into the story. The characters are well rounded and easily relatable. I laughed out loud several times. I also fell in love with Dorian Zade. Currently reading the 4th installment in the Series - that's how much I love it! :)
Dorian and Gwen's mating madness
Ania Looren and Malachi
Yes, I would as it is a good story
I love the story line and it kept me entertained throughout.
No I haven't
I enjoyed the whole book
I love reading Sci-Fi and Demon of Synar does not let you down. It has just enough twists to keep you guessing! I absolutely love the development of one of the main characters, Ania. I have enjoyed her evolving into such a strong character that I want to see how she manages to live her new life!
Ania! She was a warrior, who spent so much time to become a peace maker, and then to be thrown back into the warrior scene, makes me want to read the rest of the series to see how Donna McDonald finishes her cycle in life!
Malachi! When Allyson performed his voice, it gave me chills, which is exactly what I envisioned when I read the book!
I look forward to the rest of the series by Donna McDonald! I also enjoyed the narrator's voice.
Literature and Writing Examiner, author, dreamer, all round fun chickiepoo!
I had already read this book -- and loved it -- when I found out that the author had released an audio version. I tend to be a bit skittish about audiobooks for two reasons: 1) a bad reader can really destroy an otherwise wonderful story and 2) I get my own idea of the characters voices in my head and it's not always easy to jibe those voices with an audio version. But I decided to give it a shot -- after all, the book was already a great read.
I'm really thrilled to announce that the audio version of The Demon of Synar is so worth the download and the listen that I've been recommending it all over.
The Demon of Synar brings together the worlds of Science Fiction/Space Opera, Paranormal, and Romance into a brilliant story. Dark and action packed, this story is a tight, character driven story of Liam Synar on the day of his "wedding" to Ambassador Ania Looren. But an assassination plot thwarts the wedding and leaves several killed and Ania fatally wounded. Liam, unknown to any but the reader, is a Demon Master who has the power of the family demon, Malachi. Without her knowing, Liam commands Malachi into Ania to heal her and keep her alive -- and then disappears, leaving his new mate to deal with her feelings of rejection. There are reasons why, but she is not to know them. And thus begins the story.
There's a lot of action as Liam has to rescue his mate, dodge the assassination attempts, and hopefully get his crew together. And what a varied crew it is. McDonald excels in creating very real characters from other worlds and making you believe that they really exist. They're full of flaws, shining moments, bravery, and just being who they are. Each character has his or her own personality and you get caught up in the story and in their lives.
Right from the first chapter, this story takes off and it doesn't stop. The action is amazing, the plot draws you in and doesn't let go -- and the cliffhangers make you want to read the next book. And then the next. And then the next. And darn it, the woman doesn't write fast enough for me; I'm so hooked, I want more and I want it now.
And now, the icing on the cake is having an audio version. Allyson Johnson's reading is spot on! She has such a great take on each of the characters -- especially Malachi, the titled Demon of Synar -- and she gives voice to a complex character that is much more than he originally seems. She keeps things moving with her reading, which is a plus. I really hope she's reading the rest of the books in this series, because I don't think anyone else could do as well as she does with them.
Bottom line, if you love romances and science fiction, this is the book and series for you. If you don't have time during your busy day but want to enjoy a good book, this is the book for you. This is a must have that even if you don't like SF and/or romance, you'll still love it, it's that well written and that well read.
Five out of five stars across the board.
