Publisher's Summary

Demon Accords, book 13.

Faced with writing college papers, prepping for tests, and teaching testy witches, Declan O'Carroll has enough on his plate. Not to mention the magical withdrawal of leaving his very own magical kingdom behind on Fairie. But when he and his friends are attacked from creatures out of folklore and fable, it seems the Queens of Summer and Winter aren't done with him yet. But if they're so eager to mess with Earth, maybe it's time to Earth came to them. After all, he's got some lessons to teach.

Above the rest

The narration was above average and made the characters live. The story kept me wanting more and getting it. I would like to see Stacia and Declan get married and have a children. Maybe a double wedding with Barbiel doing the services. That would be the boom.

Well done--good continuation

Excellent series and this is a good continuation to "The Demon Accords" series.

More Fairy battles and dealing with the queen of that Realm while Declan O'Carroll deals with--college--growing knowledge and powers with witchcraft--pressure from outside forces. Basically this book is focused around Declan and his dealing with all that is coming at him.

Well written, thank you John Conroe and an excellent narration, thank you James Patrick Cronin.

let down a little

I've loved every book in this series until this one. This one felt like 4 or 5 different ideas for stories crammed into a summary. Nothing felt right. Please Mr. Conroe, go back to the roots of this story. James Patrick Cronin did an excellent job, as usual, with the narration.

Downhill and dissapointed (it seems very rushed)

Any additional comments?

So been a big fan of the series so this is a bit painful, but this was not ok.
But this is the worst book yet, by far.
It feels like a manuscript more than a story, meaning it is like reading a stats sheet of what have happened and what we should feel and know about everything and it uses the first 21 chapters just summarizing what we already know from the earlier books.
It literally force situations which makes no sense just so the characters can over-narrated everything to clearly and way to obviously tell the listener that this character has these personality traits because of this thing. (like someone needing to summarize the movie character on a “factual” based lvl; comes off wrong, forced and just annoying).

So 21 chapters of that.

Then we go over to overdramatically reactions to pointless stuff which is ONLY there to force a “ex-machina” to use later, which just makes no sense (seriously we where done with the entire “agents are utterly clueless and idioticly suicidel when dealing with the hero crew” after the chris parts like 6 books ago.
That we have well known agents act completely insane and then everyone just turning on Declan and then act all like it’s a big deal that he said “if you kill my lifepartner I will kill you”, after they already shot chris’s bear…. And then trying to make it into this big revelation is just terrible.)

Everything seems so overly explained just to use time, or tell us how the character is instead of Showing it in a natural situation (instead of specifically forced scenarios to then narrated the information to us as if we were reading of a spread sheet)..

Besides that every character has next to no personality, just reacting like how you would guess a “first layout” of ideas would tell it just to get the overview; and it is either constantly self-hatred, self-rightousness or an absolutely absurd amount of 12year old snarky arrogant and extreme pragging in a negative way.

The last 4’ish hours are worth hearing just to get the overview of the story.
The last 2 hours it’s trying to move into following the character, but again it is just used to force obvious stuff which we seen before, and which is just a repeat of exact same reactions reused in yet another narrating… the way it just forces information we already know is just terrible even here…


In short in feels more like an attempt to tell a story to someone who doesn’t know the last 40hours and trying to cramp everything in so they get everything we already know and have been stomped with so much it is just to much now.
With to little evolution to the characters, and the one thing that kept them running was the OP’ness of new talent, abilities and their usages…. This doesn’t have any of that, just ex-machina and maybe 2hour’ish of actual good story and 9hours of “meeh to bad fluff”.

Disappointing, just OK

I nearly gave up on this book. The only thing that stopped me was my investment in this series and the hope that other titles will improve. Declan is an interesting side character but that is all. I'm tired of him being the main character with Chris and Tanya as merely support characters. The series needs to get back to it's roots and focus on them. This book lacked a cohesive story arc interesting enough to draw me in. Also, there were some conflict points that were illogical at best. I feel like the same purposes could have been achieved in the story more logically with more work on the part of Mr. Conroe. I have enjoyed his previous books in this series, specifically the ones centered around the primary characters. This one seems like he wrote it over a long weekend to fulfill an obligation. I feel this book would have been better suited as a short story in an anthology. I hope Mr. Conroe returns to his central characters and his previous quality of story.

Performance is outstanding as always

I felt the story was weak. Maybe that's just me , I do not care for the witch kid and super computer... kinda been hoping they would get killed off... I really enjoy the Chris and Tonya dynamic, it's why I started the series in the first place... but if this whole witch kid only line keeps up... I suppose I'm done... sad really, this world has so much potential.

Back to Fae, secrets uncovered!

Summer Reign
By: John Conroe
Narrated by: James Patrick Cronin
Series: The Demon Accords, Book 13
This book tells is Declan teaching, going back to Fae, finding out more about how his mother died, and more. Lots of action, battles, a ghost, a spy at school, more power growing in him, and him and his werewolf girlfriend's bond groves too.
The narrator is awesome as usual! Always a joy to listen to this narrator...perfect for this series.

Another great Demon Accords book. But..

I have loved all the Demon Accords books and listen to them over and over again. This one had a different feel to it and didn't seem like it was an organized story as much as collection of separate events that leading up to a future story. There is one thing that really bothered me. The accents for the Irish characters seemed really off to me and Ashlyn was very hard to listen to compared to her in other books. She almost sounded whiny and I did not like it at all. Everything else was awesome and entertaining.

As always amazing

Although as an english born gal I couldn't stop laughing at the attempt at a Welsh accent. To say its was wrong would be an understatement. But hey loved it all the same

Narrator hasn't even heard a Welsh accent

The Welsh accent is nothing like the Irish accent. I do wonder if the author is now having a laugh with the narrator at the expense of the audiences enjoyment of the books.

I love this series

It doesn't get old, it didn't disappoint in any way. I get uber excited when ever I see a John Conroe book pop up. So worth every penny!
