Publisher's Summary

My name is Roy Morgan, and while being a half-demon warlock doesn't pay the bills, it's a nice perk.

Or at least it was.

Now bodies are falling from the sky, someone is taking control of supernatural powerhouses and using them up like this is the expendables, and if that wasn't enough, some a-hole is trying to open a gateway to the deepest darkest pits of Hell.

Let me just say, if that bastard gets out, we're all totally screwed because what's in Hell, is supposed to stay in Hell.

My name is Roy Morgan, and this time, if I want to save my friends, I might need to let the demon side of me come out and play.

Train rush story that ends on a major cliffhang...

Morgan is back, and for him that may not be so great, as his return is marked by a body falling out of the sky and landing on his lady's car. So, it doesn't take long for the action to start. From there, he has to try to keep his D.A. babe alive and healthy in spite of all the forces trying to kill her.

I've said it before, but Morgan fits right in with the likes of Harry Dresden, Nate Temple, and Yancy Lazarus. This is some great Urban Fantasy, and while a little of the guilt trippy stuff is common troupe in this genre it isn't overwhelming. Being half demon, and not having a lot of options in life due to that nature you do have a little bit of an issue.

The book is an action packed and emotional train ride, but be warned, it does end on a cliffhanger. This makes me upset for getting into the series early, as I generally only read series that have three books or I know are complete, since that way I can power through and never have to wait. Still, the way this series is going the wait will be worth it.

Foster is great as usual, and he has really come to embody Morgan. He dances his way through the story, and takes you by the hand and keeps you right in time with him as if he were Fred Astair. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Hurry up book 3!!!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with the first book, there is great dialog and plenty of sarcastic humor. The narration continues to be great too. Oh, but what a cliffhanger! Book 3 better hurry up and get released!

Hooked, but confused...

I really enjoyed this book, there's lots of action, some wicked twists, some awesome new characters, and of course... Gary, who wouldn't love the imp?

Renee is still a mystery, I have no idea what the big deal with her bloodline is, I'm really hoping this is explained in the next book.

I liked getting a bit more information on Roy's history, his past has a big influence on him so getting to hear about some of it was great.

This book was great, the only thing I didn't like was the cliffhanger at the end, that one is a doosie and the next book isn't on audio yet!

The narration is excellent, great character voices and the delivery is natural and enaging.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

What men/demons do for love

Roy Morgan our warlock/demon protagonist finds himself in a familiar situation for many male protagonists; protecting/helping a beautiful woman who he loves. Their story, Roy’s and Rachel’s, was started in book one, which ended in a cliffhanger.

This story picks up where they are in a car when her brother’s corpse lands their car.

Roy is still that child who had been outcaste from his coven, betrayed by his brother, suffer a failed marriage, is part demon and has poor self-esteem. Rachel is a strong female, a district attorney, a sister, and she jumps into fights despite being human. Rachel is now aware of the supernatural nature of Roy. Roy is doing the caveman, I protect my woman, to an extreme because he failed at keeping her brother safe.

This story features them running around following leads about the Benefactor. Through all of this they are dealing with supernatural attempts by the Benefactor to kill/capture them. Gary, the imp adds the wit and cynicism to play off Roy. Many times, he demonstrates more common sense than Roy.

Action and interest in the story center around Roy throwing around magic. And yes, Rachel is doing that girl thing of interfering when she has been told not to interfere. The story drags at a certain point when Roy becomes maudlin, and a stubborn butt head. The repetition of the same issue had me screaming, “ok guy, get over yourself.”

Many of our heros in the supernatural find it appalling to have a Jekyll and Hyde personality. Their stories center around their inability to contain/control their beast. This Jekyll and Hyde syndrome is a Dissociative Identity Disorder; “is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states.” There were two famous cases, Three faces of Eve and Sybil.

Our heroes must embrace their beast/demon to become a whole person. Writers use the good versus evil split personality for the suspense factor, ohhh watch out for his beast/demon. The rage and wreckage of the beast/demon and the shame and guilt of the heros are the pull and tugs strings of the reader’s psyche that adds enjoyment. Roy has a few of those moments here.

***spoiler***

In addition, I got frustrated when over Roy guilt trip. That is a waste of time for a common feature used in many stories. Saving Rachel was his priority. Roy, goes on a personal guilt trip for 3 – 6 minutes. Then the ancestors of a South African group shovels guilt on Roy, oh you killed an innocent man. In the last few minutes, there is lengthy discussion with the bad guys on why Rachel must be the one thrown down the proverbial rabbit hold. Roy is told, the atrocities will not end, unless Rachel… The question “why” comes up at least 6 times and for Roy, because she is the last one is not a sufficient answer. I can get behind Roy on not accepting their answer, but please Roy, don’t carry that guilt to save her.

Rachel disappointed me with the comments of, I love you, let me do this, the bad man only wants to get his revenge upon those who wronged him, and everything will be fine after that. Really Rachel? As an intelligent woman, who was also a DA, and whose brother was killed by this same Benefactor, you think his reasoning is valid to give your life. This Benefactor perverted the supernatural community and killed many humans and supernaturals in the process. But you’re ok with jumping in the rabbit hold? I wanted to put a bullet in her head for being so stupid.

This too ends in a cliffhanger and I will read the next one.
