Publisher's Summary

Book 5 of the Demon Accords.

Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. Sometimes it's just best to get the hell out of Dodge. After turning an ancient vampire to dust and stirring the Coven into a mob of pitchfork-and-torch-bearing vampires, Chris Gordon thinks it might be time for a road trip. So, leaving Tanya to calm the troubled masses, he heads south to help a North Carolina pack with some demon troubles. But with beautiful Stacia Reynolds in the shotgun seat and his trusty companion, Awasos, Chris just might find more trouble out of the Big Apple than in it as he follows the blacktop south. It's demons and witches and bears, oh my.

These books give you what you want

If you like a book about a hero who is a kicks butt gets the girl keeps the girl and has no compunction about killing bad guys instead of letting them go to just to come back again and again. which is the very definition of insanity then this is the book series for you my friend. Oh and did I mention the girl kick butt too. Dig in you won't be disappointed in this one.

ugh.

I hate it when these books end. I know the next in the series is avaliable but still.....I want to climb in the pages and hang out with Chris and Taunya. These books are to short, which I guess for the author is a good problem to have.

Like previous book, but this one is frustrating (spoiler)

Spoiler look away now.

Amnesia? Frustrating...it's a lame excuse to start over with the storyline and add personal relationship tensions. Weak, and frustrating for a reader who has gone through this much character development already

not the best of the series

The narration was terrific, per usual. I wasn't a fan of this particular book, but I still enjoy the series. You could *almost* skip this one. Maybe find a summary online.

Beats Points To Death & Internal Monologue Woes

So i finished this book... disappointed at what could have been.

I'll preface this by saying the book was still enjoyable and i will keep reading, but there were some poor decisions made that just pulled you out of the story and in general detracted from the experience.

Narration:
James is yet again fine for Narrating the book. He does his job well. Not a revolutionary performance or anything. Just a steady showing from him.
4 Stars

Story:
As far as the direction this novel took it was a good way to push forward the overall plot of the Series.... but that's what this book was meant to do. As a self contained read it was pretty choppy and sort of all over the place. Things just sort of happened when explanation was really needed in advance. The handy tool of foreshadowing was sorely lacking.
This is the equivalent of a superhero movie just made to push the universe forward and put good storytelling in the back seat.
It is at best average when past novels have done a much better job. Even book 4 was better and i thought that was a drop from the first 3 in the series.
The ending and final boss was handled with little care. The final villain of this Novel despite the build up was just a prop piece when it came down to it to further awe us of what Chris can do. Which would be fine if John didn't forget a bunch of what Chris can do leading to horribly circular problem solving when Chris could do one thing we've already seen him do to easily solve the situation.
3 Stars

Internal Monologues:
Chris has a huge internal monologue problem. I know this is to further enhance his whole split persona thing but it has been taken too far at this point.
Whenever Grim takes over we get the most broken fight scenes ever. We will have Chris fighting something then the next moment he is making comments about Tanya or other attractive women. It is jarring. It was a cool tool when used in moderation but now that some variation of his Internal Disrupting Monologue is used several times in any encounter it has gotten so old. John was shining this little tool of his so much that the sheen has come right off and there is no shine anymore.

Also Chris has an issue with speaking super possessively and its trying to be passed of as cute... and i just don't see it.
"And my Vampire did this" He is archaic in the way he speaks of those close to him. This isn't a point to detract from the Novel just something that sorta takes me out of focus whenever he says it trying to be cute when it really isn't... it's just creepy.

Great Listen!!

Any additional comments?

There is little I can add to what others have already written. Great story, great narration and an ending with lots of possibilities! Can't wait for the next.

Love this series

This series is one of my favorites and this book did not disappoint. Who doesn't love vampires and werewolves and of course bear demi gods. I was kind of worried that this book was going to take a turn in a direction I didn't like (hate love triangles) but it turned out good. The narrator does a great job with the different characters. Can't wait to see where it goes next. Very highly recommended.

Starts perfectly

Best opening line since Moby Dick.
The rest of the book is worth a credit, it’s as easy to enjoy as the rest of the series.
I’ve been trying to reserve 5 stars for exceptional works, but I would have defaulted this at 5 stars a year ago.

Not the best in the series

This is one of those stories you have to listen to to get through the series so you know what’s going on in the next book. The book tries to go off in a detection that it shouldn’t and just keeps going on and on. The rest of the series is great light listening and very entertaining. The main character is a little too strong but then you get used to it. Great series but not the best volume in it.

Frustrating

At some point every main character ends up with a major hurdle, and as if Chris hasn't had enough of them this story throws in a whopper. I don't like the hurdle, I don't like what has been done to Chris, this book isn't as good as the others, is still good enough to recommend, but because I have fallen in love with this series I'll keep listening and have faith in the author that this hurdle will be overcome and Chris will be back to his usual unique ass kicking self.

Loved this series

Loved this series. Its even better how the narrator gives a voice to each character and you really feel all emotions from his voices, joy, sadness, humor, this has lead me to by the rest of this series and lots more books the narrator does.

inconsistencies

commissioner Riley was commissioner Kane in demon driven?! Chris tells Stacia his contact is an angel, then shortly after he's surprised that she knows, these inconsistencies abound throughout the books. but they're still great mostly.

Just gets better!

Loved this book! They just get better and better. I normally listen in the car but with this series I've just carried on listening in the house as I can't seem to turn them off. Looking forward to the next!
