Publisher's Summary

Demon summoner Kara Gillian bears the scars of Rhyzkahl’s treachery, but she refuses to let them slow her down. She and the demonic lord Mzatal have not rested in their efforts to recover Idris - Mzatal’s summoner protg who was kidnapped by enemy lords - but now their search has brought them back to Earth.

With the help of FBI agents Ryan Kristoff and Zack Garner, they begin to track down summoners who are working with Rhyzkahl. However, Kara knows Ryan’s true identity, and questions of loyalty threaten to tear apart this group of allies. When Kara intervenes to help a brilliant young computer expert and his bodyguard after an accidental shooting, she quickly learns that Rhyzkahl’s machinations run deeper than she could have ever imagined.

The search for Idris takes on a desperate edge as their enemies increase in number, and Kara realizes that an old homicide case may hold the key to their success - or their doom.With the very fabric of the universe at stake, Kara must rely on her skills, wit, and luck to save her friends and her world, yet ancient vows will have to be broken if she is to have any hope. But the price of breaking those vows may be her own blood.

This series gets better and better

Firstly, if you haven't listened to or read the previous books of the series, this isn't the one to start with because each builds on the ones before, particularly 4, 5, and 6.

The story engaged me from beginning to end with plenty of revelations and just as many new questions. Liv Anderson's narration was spot on as usual and made for a pleasant listen.

In this installment, Kara is back on Earth trying to rescue Idris and joins up again with the old gang. Eilahn, Zack, Jill, and Ryan are all there as well as Tessa, and detectives Pellini and Boudreaux. A lot happens around betrayal and loyalties, and Kara finds herself still a target for the machinations of the Mraztur. There is a scene with Ryan-Szerain that blew me away but saying more would spoil it!

Almost every character increased in richness and depth and the world building leaves me wanting to know more NOW! :)

For a fan of the Kara Gillian series, this is a must-listen! Nothing is black and white.

Conspiracy, Conspiracy, EVERYWHERE!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book rocked. You really do have to have read the previous 2 books in order to keep up. The investigation was interesting and nail biting. I really liked the unexpected twists at the end.CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Paul & Bryce as a unit because they add a new dimension to the storyline and they help the other characters to change as they needed to.

What about Liv Anderson’s performance did you like?

I enjoy her different voices and the fact that she is "acting" rather than simply reading the lines.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't really have a particular reaction but I went through the rollercoaster ride of the emotions of all of the characters.

Best book yet in this series!

This is the best book so far! The story is getting bigger and richer! I love Kara and Mzatal much more than Kara with Rhyzkahl. I love learning more about the demons and the demon realm. Diana Rowland is creating a very interesting world.

Absolutely Amazing Story & Narrator

What did you love best about Fury of the Demon?

I like how the plot from previous books come together and we learn more about the characters, and the listener ends up anticipating what is to come next... The entire series should be listened to at least twice.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed Kara Gillian's Character growth as well as others. The story is unique in its own genre, and the series is well built and plots from previous books are well linked.

What does Liv Anderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Liv Anderson does a very good job with different charterers. I really enjoyed her performance. Hopefully she will end up doing more readings. I am a fan!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to the entire series back to back, and went into a withdrawal when it was done, so I had to listen to it all over gain. :)

Any additional comments?

Can wait for the next book... The cliffhanger was nothing short of "well done", leaving the audience in anticipation for more secrets to be revealed.

Fight the Power

This is one of the better series I've found in recent years. Each new installment improves on and builds on the last one so the series is one that really must be enjoyed in order

Amazing Series

Where does Fury of the Demon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I tell you what, this book kept popping up for me as a recommendation, I finally gave the series a chance , no I'm hooked!!! I absolutely love these books. The narrator is great, the story is different and the characters are my my Mizodle mmmm mmmm good. I recommend this series to anyone who likes sookie or twilight, it's much more explicit but that makes the books that much better.... I can't wait for the next one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fury of the Demon?

O man the moment with the Lord's in battle .

What does Liv Anderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is just awesome, such realistic narration it just enthralls you that much deeper into the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes and yes both.

Any additional comments?

Just listen to them you won't regret it.

Each book in the series gets better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love books with strong female leads.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

When worlds collide......

Any additional comments?

I CAN'T wait for the next book in the series!!! With the right director these books would make the best movies.....eclipsing Lord of the Rings.

I love this series!

Kara Gillian is a low key person. She's intelligent, soft spoken, and pragmatic. She works as a homicide detective in a small city in Louisiana. And she is a summoner of demons.

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!)

Liv Anderson is perfect for the series.

Highly recommended.

Disappointed

Would you try another book written by Diana Rowland or narrated by Liv Anderson?

I have listened to the whole series now - and whilst the first book is ok, numbers 2 to 5 actually are good. The characters are engaging, the story amusing and enjoyable, aside from some minor annoyances.

What could Diana Rowland have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The point about this book is that our whole concept of the story is turned upside down - a surprise twist. I like surprise twist normally. But here the twist seems to come with losing any link to any characters, it is incredibly hard to empathise with them anymore because they have become flat facsimile of stereotypes.

Have you listened to any of Liv Anderson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I like the narrator

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Honestly, not many. The story has a lot of potential but the characters have flatlined.

Its hard to relate to the lead character

This series isn't for everyone... and its certainly not for me. i know this because i found myself happy to see Kara face real troubles. The first couple books in the series danced around the relationship between Kara and Ryan. And truth be told, that is the only reason that i kept on following the series. But up to this point i find that i'm unable to relate to Kara and to understand her thinking process. She supposedly only ever had 2 boyfriends before the start of the series... but yet, her easy tranfer into the world of casual sex while still claiming to hold feelings for Ryan..... it spoiled the series for me. Then here we find her "in love" with 'mosottle' in addition to ryan. Most of the time its pretty clear that Ryan is only an afterthought for her in the grand scheme of things....I understand her difficulty with ryan/ zerain.... but throughout the entire series she basically drags ryan around on a leash with no real desire to enter into a real relationship with him. And yet, she doesnt set boundaries between them in order to spare ryan's feelings. I find myself disliking Kara as a person... i will stick it out just because i made the mistake of purchasing the next book.... the only thing that can save my opinion of this series would be Ryan finding love outside of Kara. What a horrible and self absorbed character she is!

MORE MORE MORE!

Exactly as Amazon Customer says in their review "...I have never gone from one book to the next so quickly..."

(except with books by Anne Bishop)

As soon as I finish one book I start on the next in this series. This book doesn't disappoint either - I didnt love it quite as much as the previous one as it did slightly overdo Kara's battle to keep her identity but that's a mere detail.

The overall scope jumping between the demon realm and Earth, treachery, really bad baddies and a gripping climax that went on and one with twists and turns, its wonderful.

Its actually bad for me as usually I listen to books whilst doing other things like driving, mowing the lawn etc - but these I am actually making time to listen as I struggle to put each book down

great story and superbly narrated. Next book starts later today

Fabulas Books

Where does Fury of the Demon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very Highly, I loved Diana Rowland's book all of them try reading other writers like john Ringo and Chris Fieldwater as well

Who was your favorite character and why?

very much the demon who took care of the main character

What does Liv Anderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It is the voice, sexy yet great to listen to and the way she expresses and delivers with her timing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did it was great

Any additional comments?

I hope so much that Diana writes lots of more books and that liv anderson narrates them.
