Who can Kara Gillian trust?

That’s what she’d like to know. Demon summoner and now a consultant for the FBI, Kara Gillian has spent the past several months in the demon realm training while recovering from the treachery of the demonic lord Rhyzkahl. Yet though the torment and betrayal she suffered at his hands continues to plague her, she’s not about to let that slow her down.

Kara returns to Earth to search for a fellow summoner being held by allies of Rhyzkahl. Aiding in the hunt are Kara’s friends, FBI agents Ryan Kristoff and Zack Garner. However, Kara and Zack know Ryan’s true identity—though he himself does not—and questions of loyalty threaten to tear apart their previously close-knit group. Rhyzkahl’s machinations run deeper than they could have ever imagined, and the search for the missing summoner takes on a desperate edge while dangers from ancient demon oaths loom and enemies increase in power and numbers.

Armed with her skills, wit, and attitude, it is up to Kara to save her friends and her world.

The price of failure will be her soul.


Sex: 2 There was some and it was left to the imagination and didn’t take away from the storyline. It showed us the depth of the relationship between Kara and Mzatal.

Plot: 5 As we get in to the book the past comes back to haunt the reader. Questions I had from previous books in this series were answered and lots more doubts came to surface with the powerful climax toward the end of the book. It seems to me the more Kara tries to reclaim herself as a cop and summoner the more we notice that she has a bigger destiny than anyone could have envisioned.

Every time something happens to Kara it fits in to some bizarre puzzle only the Ancients from before the demon lords knows. With all the murders, kidnappings and freak accidents that happen around Kara and her family, they seem to be a coincidence. In this book we start to see a pattern starting with the grandparents that died or almost died in that disastrous summoning of Rhyzkahl. Then to add to our ever growing excitement she adds some new characters to the cast. They grow on you.

I think I am going to go back through all the books and make one of those crime/evidence/witness/whodunit boards we see on the cop shows like Castle.

Overall Enjoyment: 5 I really love this series. I met Ms Rowland at a conference at the debut of the first in the series. And then I won the second book in the series and was hooked. I will continue to read about Kara and her Posse until the bitter end.
