i would recommend this book. i think it is a good second installment in this series. i will definately get the third. I feel there is a lot of pote..Show More »ntial here, and the author is just getting the ground work down. interested to see where this all goes. there is still self doubt with the lead character Kara. She doesn't yet see her own potential and value but she is definately growing. Her power is growing and taking an interesting turn. The mystery is good, the crime scences are descriptive but not as shocking as the first book, not quite as dark. the romantic/sexual tension is good. The narration is good as well. give it a try. i would say you should start with the first book because it flows better that way. you don't want to miss how Kara got where she is, however they recap enough in this book you would get the basics.
This is the fourth book in the series, but only the second put on audible. I've only listened to Secrets of the Demon in this series, and I liked thi..Show More »s book better than Secrets. I really enjoyed this book, especially how demons were used to attempt to solve the crime. I also liked that I was able to predict before hand who was actually at fault for the murders. Overall, if you want to listen to a good mystery or urban fantasy this is a good choice. I would recommend this book to friends.

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!)
All of the books in this series were outstanding. Each book exceeds the next book. Diana Rowland outdid herself in each book that she wrote. Liv Ande..Show More »rson did an excellent job of narrating this series. Liv made the characters come to life. I would recommend for you to listen to all of Diana Roland books in this series.
