Homicide detective Kara Gillian has a special talent: she can sense the "arcane" in our world, and there's quite a bit of it, even in Beaulac, Louisiana. She's also a summoner of demons, and works on a task force that deals with supernatural crimes. Her partners are attractive and smart FBI agents, but they're not summoners, and they're not telling Kara why they are on this special force with her.
To make things worse, Kara has pledged herself to one of the most powerful of demons - a Demon Lord - who helped save her partner's life, but now expects things in return. Meanwhile, she's trying to solve a string of murders that are somehow tied together by money, sex, rock music and...mud. But how can she concentrate on the case when she's not even sure who-or what-her partners are?

great book even if you dont start with the first one in the collection you still understand it
I like to read mystery books and a fantasy books. This was a good hybrid of the two. My chief complaint is that the first two books were not available on audible. My second complaint is that this book seemed to be a 'chickflick' type of story, which as a man I found to not be as approachable as possible. I did enjoy the hard-criminology aspects of the novel, which were somewhat unique in my experience. I'll try more in this series, but I'm not too hopeful.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This book was the best yet, so I'm off to get the next one in the series. I'm really liking this story and I can't wait to see who Kara ends up with romantically. It's a series that has all the elements I enjoy. If you haven't tried this series I would advise you to start from book 1. You can tell from my review that I think this book is worth the credit.

This series just keeps getting better and better! It’s not only the current mystery Kara and her new FBI task force are rushing to solve to stop more deaths; it has so many twist and turns, you can’t even begin to guess who the bad guys are. You think you know, but it just blows you away, when they are revealed at the end! Oh no, that’s not the best part about this series. It’s the underlying backstory that’s going on with Kara, Ryan, and the Demon Lord. What is Ryan, and will he and Kara just PLEASE hurry up and see their chemistry, and get together! OMG the sexually chemistry is KILLLING me! I find myself yelling at this audiobook, “KISS HIM! You big dummy! UGHH!” What is the Demon Lords endgame? He is playing at something, but who knows, there is so much back story going on, needless to say, you cannot start on this book. Go back start from the beginning.
I can’t wait to jump into the next book!....Sara
Intense, exciting, incredible
Kara kicks ass!!! Love her character
The dump when all hell breaks loose
Goth goes wrong
I really like this series and have the pleasure of listening back to back, this is my favorite so far
I am a fan of Illona Andrews and Faith Hunter so am pleased to find another paranormal series that does not bore me. Kara Gilligan is smart, funny, determined and best of all not whiney. Diana Rowland writes a fast paced story with interesting characters and surprising twists. I hope I enjoy the rest of the series as much as the first three books
Good continuation in the series, good twists and suspense. can't wait to read the next
"Ecstasy is the beginning"
among the top, I love audio books, Diana Rowland has the`t gift like John Ringo, Kim Woods Ann Rice Chris Fieldwater Mary Stewart and other great authors
There were many great moments as her writing is spell binding and entraps the reader
An awesome sexy voice and a great narrater.
much when certain characters become injured, it oiis put accros so intently it moves the reader or listener
I rate these books 10 out of 10, try reading Chris Fieldwater John Ringo and Kim Woods as well, Chris Fieldwater has a new book coming out Eternally in Love, my friend did a proof read and I had a browse, awesome sexy and mind blowing.
