Home Diana Rowland Blood of the Demon. 0. I fired at the same time that Ryan did, my finger tightening spasmodically on the trigger. Spots of blood bloomed on the front of her shirt, but unlike in the movies, the shots didn’t throw her dramatically across the room. Rachel stumbled forward as Ryan backed to the wall, and she grabbed his gun hand even as he pumped another round into her chest. Ryan screamed-a sound I hoped to never hear again. Jill followed me in, slowly pulling herself onto one of the stools on the other side of the counter, her eyes staying on the demon as he stood by the kitchen door. I didn’t miss the fact that he had effectively blocked the one exit. I pulled another popcorn bag out of the pantry and stuffed it into the microwave.

BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL, MAN AND DEMON, SHE’S ABOUT TO FACE THE ONE THING SHE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SURVIVE. Welcome to the world of Kara Gillian, a cop with a gift. Not only does she have the power of “othersight” to see what most people can’t even imagine, but she’s become the exclusive summoner of a demon lord. Or maybe it’s the other way around. The fact is, with two troublesome cases on her docket and a handsome FBI agent under her skin, Kara needs the help of sexy, insatiable Lord Rhyzkahl more than he needs her. Because these two victims, linked by suspicious coincidence, haven’t just been murdered. Something has eaten their souls.It’s a case with roots in the arcane, but whose evil has flowered among the rich, powerful, and corrupt in Beaulac, Louisiana. And as the killings continue, Kara soon realizes how much there’s still to learn about demons, men, and things that kill in the night—and how little time she has to learn it.

I didnt like this one as much as the first book in the series and to be honest, I think it was the pacing. At about 60something percent through the book, we still had a ton of things left to be resolved. The build up took forever, and while I am not opposed to a drawn out exposition, I want the pay off to be just as drawn out, which this wasnt. I was caught off guard by the "villian" which was cool but overall I was a bit underwhelmed with this book. I found Ryan to be a jackass throughout the entire book as well, which was frustrating to say the least. There was no reason for him to be the level off jackass that he was. He spent the entire book judging Kara for her connections with demons which I found wildly unfair.

But I have to start the next one which is sitting on my kindle waiting for me. I'm glad I stumbled onto this series.

The only nitpick in this book that I have is the inconsistency in the part where Kara's thinking:

"Could it possibly be another summoner? But summoners were rare, and the chances of another one being in this area and summoning a demon that could eat essence seemed too high..."

The bunch of people who summoned Rhyzkahl in the first book were all local summoners, though all (mostly? I forget) members of two families. Part of her outraged defense at Ryan's suspicion that she could be the Symbol Man killer in book one was:

"I think that you have no idea what you are talking about...The chances of having two people working the arcane in one area? Well, if you had the slightest damn clue about how the arcane works, you might know that this area happens to lie on a focal point of arcane power, and thus it's very possible there are quite a few people in the area with arcane connections. And even though summoning is not a common skill, I promise you, I am not the only summoner in the world."

So, um, which is it? Are summoners rare or not so rare where she is?

To counter that little negative note, a favorite offhand bit for me was Kehlirik's glee at the U-haul and using the telephone. I like the author's demons and their quirks and thirst for knowledge of Kara's world.

I also like the pace at which Ryan's mysterious talents and traits are being revealed, allowing the reader to guess at what and who he and Zack might be and how they fit into everything. I won't guess here and risk spoiling something for another reader.

I'm making myself review before I start each book and forget details of what happened in the last one and...now I'm impatient. On to Secrets of the Demon!

I am so happy that I recently discovered this series. The Kara Gillian series is about a police detective who can also summon demons and see and manipulate the arcane. In the first installment we got to know Kara (a realistic, down to earth, all around likeable character) and her world. We also met her demon summoner Aunt Tessa, a demon lord named Rhyzkahl, and the uber sexy and endearing FBI agent Ryan.

In "Blood of the Demon", bodies are starting to turn up in which the bodies's souls or essences have been stolen. Kara is one of the few people who can actually see the missing souls and thereby can tell that fact alone links the murders. Again the actual mystery is so interesting and entertaining I don't want to spoil the details or give anything away. Take my word that the plot is well paced and fully developed. There are plenty of surprises and excitement to intrigue any urban fantasy or paranormal fan. Rhyzkahl is still ready and willing to offer Kara affection and attention but she hesitates to call on him due to his powers. Now he is asking her to be his summoner, a link Kara isn't sure she is prepared for.

Romance to me is a secondary part of any novel I read. I want the mysteries and the kick butt action. I want to learn about supernatural worlds and the creatures that inhabit them. That said, the romance (or would be romance) between Kara and Ryan is a highlight of this series. I love her, I love him. They work together so well because they are friends first. The author has done an excellent job of naturally bringing the two together. This isn't a love at first sight plot device at all. The tension between them crackles. They are obviously into each other but they both skirt the issue, neither willing to risk their friendship. Still I love every scene and every interaction. I want them together but I dread the moment we lose this chemistry.

So far I really enjoy the fact that each case has been completely resolved by the time the last page is read but yet there are plenty of ongoing storylines to keep the reader waiting for more. I have the third book at my bedside and I can't wait to read it and be caught up on the series. I have to say that this has earned a place on my pre-order 'must have' list.
