Publisher's Summary

Demon summoner Kara Gillian bears the scars of Rhyzkahl’s treachery, but she refuses to let them slow her down. She and the demonic lord Mzatal have not rested in their efforts to recover Idris - Mzatal’s summoner protg who was kidnapped by enemy lords - but now their search has brought them back to Earth.

With the help of FBI agents Ryan Kristoff and Zack Garner, they begin to track down summoners who are working with Rhyzkahl. However, Kara knows Ryan’s true identity, and questions of loyalty threaten to tear apart this group of allies. When Kara intervenes to help a brilliant young computer expert and his bodyguard after an accidental shooting, she quickly learns that Rhyzkahl’s machinations run deeper than she could have ever imagined.

The search for Idris takes on a desperate edge as their enemies increase in number, and Kara realizes that an old homicide case may hold the key to their success - or their doom.With the very fabric of the universe at stake, Kara must rely on her skills, wit, and luck to save her friends and her world, yet ancient vows will have to be broken if she is to have any hope. But the price of breaking those vows may be her own blood.

    I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book rocked. You really do have to have read the previous 2 books in order to keep up. The investigation was interesting and nail biting. I really liked the unexpected twists at the end.CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Paul & Bryce as a unit because they add a new dimension to the storyline and they help the other characters to change as they needed to.


    What about Liv Anderson’s performance did you like?

    I enjoy her different voices and the fact that she is "acting" rather than simply reading the lines.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't really have a particular reaction but I went through the rollercoaster ride of the emotions of all of the characters.

    "This series gets better and better"

    Firstly, if you haven't listened to or read the previous books of the series, this isn't the one to start with because each builds on the ones before, particularly 4, 5, and 6.

    The story engaged me from beginning to end with plenty of revelations and just as many new questions. Liv Anderson's narration was spot on as usual and made for a pleasant listen.

    In this installment, Kara is back on Earth trying to rescue Idris and joins up again with the old gang. Eilahn, Zack, Jill, and Ryan are all there as well as Tessa, and detectives Pellini and Boudreaux. A lot happens around betrayal and loyalties, and Kara finds herself still a target for the machinations of the Mraztur. There is a scene with Ryan-Szerain that blew me away but saying more would spoil it!

    Almost every character increased in richness and depth and the world building leaves me wanting to know more NOW! :)

    For a fan of the Kara Gillian series, this is a must-listen! Nothing is black and white.

    "I love this series!"

    Kara Gillian is a low key person. She's intelligent, soft spoken, and pragmatic. She works as a homicide detective in a small city in Louisiana. And she is a summoner of demons.

    The demons don't come from hell. In this plot, the demons are from another dimension, and they come in all shapes and sizes and flavors (and colors!). Kara uses them for practicing her summoning, and for help with the murder cases (supernatural) that she has to solve. They are very original characters in their own right. I love the alien-ness of the demons, and the way their otherness comes across in dialogue. There is a secondary mystery running through the whole series that really gets going in the last two books.

    It's a pretty good premise for a series, but in the hands of Diana Rowland, it's a great! I've been listening from book 1, straight through, and I've loved every minute of it. (I bought the whole series while I was only halfway through the first book!)

    Liv Anderson is perfect for the series.

    Highly recommended.

    "Each book in the series gets better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love books with strong female leads.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When worlds collide......


    Any additional comments?

    I CAN'T wait for the next book in the series!!! With the right director these books would make the best movies.....eclipsing Lord of the Rings.

    "Fight the Power"

    This is one of the better series I've found in recent years. Each new installment improves on and builds on the last one so the series is one that really must be enjoyed in order

    "Amazing Series"
    Where does Fury of the Demon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I tell you what, this book kept popping up for me as a recommendation, I finally gave the series a chance , no I'm hooked!!! I absolutely love these books. The narrator is great, the story is different and the characters are my my Mizodle mmmm mmmm good. I recommend this series to anyone who likes sookie or twilight, it's much more explicit but that makes the books that much better.... I can't wait for the next one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fury of the Demon?

    O man the moment with the Lord's in battle .


    What does Liv Anderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is just awesome, such realistic narration it just enthralls you that much deeper into the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes and yes both.


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen to them you won't regret it.

    "Fury of the Demon"

    This book was more of the same as the previous books in the series: nothing a lot better and nothing a lot worse. If you want to hop into the series, do so earlier on. It's a solid series and I do recommend it. Instead of gushing why I enjoyed this book (and I need to insist that I did enjoy it net total) I'm going to list the handful of issues which I had with it.

    Semi-spoilers below.
    1. I would have liked a few more plot twists. I kept expecting betrayal from within as well as unexpected defenses from Starfire. In the end the good guys just won without anything going wrong/getting worse. It made the badass evil humans seem less competent, which kinda marginalized their coolness. I wanted Sunny, or Paul, or Bryce, or someone to betray the team just cause it would have made for a better ending. With the whole 'Can we trust Elan? Zane?' plotlines suggested at the beginning of the book I assumed that there was going to be some sort of betrayal later on, but it never happened.
    2. I would have liked more of a mystery theme to the story. The reason why I was initially attracted to the series was because of the mystery, but it seems that in recent novels the author has turned away from the formula. I like to read mystery books where someone uses modern science with a spritz of magic to solve murders. I'm indifferent to the whole demon-realm sequences/demon-politic plotlines. In the recent "of the Demon" books these plotlines have been brought to the forefront at the expense of mystery. As I'm a mystery reader, this is a big turn off. Furthermore I'm a dude and not appreciative of the increasingly relevant romance components (I don't hate them, but frankly it's like we're tripping over Mizotl every two minutes). That's 2 strikes.
    3. The author's voice is improving the more books I've read, but this is slightly offset by the fact that the books are growing. This book took me 20+ hours to listen too, which was too long. I got as much enjoyment out of this book as I would have expected from a 16 hour book, so it was kinda dull in spots for me. Again part of the problem here is that I feel disenfranchised, no longer being this series' target audience. If you are interested in a kickass female protagonist who consorts (in both senses of the word) with demons then this book should be right up your alley. If so that 20 hours might be action packed from top to toe.
    4. Everything has a demon name, or weird sigil name, or whatever. It wasn't confusing so much as annoying: I didn't want to expend the effort to learn what everything means. Paiga was the worst offender, mainly because it's used what seems like once every five minutes. Also, wtf is Paiga-ing? Is it meditation, or calming magic? I think it's both, but I'm not quite sure. It happens all the time when the author could just say instead, "I forced myself to remain calm."
    Also why does everything have a demon-name, except the demon-realm? Why doesn't Mizotl or the demons call it by it's real name? Is this oversight, or just inattention on my part?
    5. Why didn't they just go to the demon realm and start summoning enemy summoners/ Ferush/Jerry/other enemy humans to "interview"? It seems like the most logical method for not only finding Idris but dismantling the enemy army. It was done previously in the series to great effect by Mizotl himself, so we know it can be done. As Kara herself is a summoner I'm surprised this solution didn't occur to her. Sure some of the baddies would be protected, but probably not Ferush. We know he wasn't wearing a magic-blocking anklet simply because he was able to read minds every time he was on screen. Just kidnap the guy and he would have crumbled.
    6. So... Tracy? Was he just a kook? If so, how did he get info on Farush? Now that both Tracy and Farush is dead I fear we won't get any answers. Or perhaps inattention caused me to not notice the answer to this question either.

    Ruling: I don't think this was worth my audible credit, but honesty it was close. I'm going to wait until future books are on sale before purchasing their e-paper copies. I only buy audiobooks when I am reasonably confident that I will want to listen to it again, and the way this series is going I don't think I can get more than one listen out of a single book.

    Also: Would it kill the author to put in another gag-worthy morgue scene?! I mean seriously, I haven't vomited in months.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book written by Diana Rowland or narrated by Liv Anderson?

    I have listened to the whole series now - and whilst the first book is ok, numbers 2 to 5 actually are good. The characters are engaging, the story amusing and enjoyable, aside from some minor annoyances.


    What could Diana Rowland have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The point about this book is that our whole concept of the story is turned upside down - a surprise twist. I like surprise twist normally. But here the twist seems to come with losing any link to any characters, it is incredibly hard to empathise with them anymore because they have become flat facsimile of stereotypes.


    Have you listened to any of Liv Anderson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I like the narrator


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Honestly, not many. The story has a lot of potential but the characters have flatlined.
