Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Mark of a Demon by Diana Rowland

Mark of the Demon Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland




Synopsis:

Cop and conjurer of demons, she's a woman in danger of losing control--to a power that could kill....

Why me? Why now? That's what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure. But can she enlist his aid in helping her stop a killer who's already claimed the lives--and souls--of thirteen people? And should she? The Symbol Man is a nightmare that the city thought had ended three years ago. Now he's back for an encore and leaving every indication on the flesh of his victims that he, too, is well versed in demonic lore.

Kara may be the only cop on Beaulac's small force able to stop the killer, but it is her first homicide case. Yet with Rhyzkahl haunting her dreams, and a handsome yet disapproving FBI agent dogging her waking footsteps, she may be in way over her head...

My thoughts:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
MARK OF A DEMON is a great Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Mystery? It's fast paced and hard to put down. Diana Rowland really made a great new series with fresh ideas. I took to the protagonist Kara who is a Louisiana Homicide Detective and a demon summoner. I like how she is in both the human world and demon world so you are always busy and on edge. Her first case as detective has her connecting to her past and her new demonic lord Rhyzkahl who is unearthly beautiful and just very deadly.

The case is she is on is of The serial killer known as the Symbol Man who is a nightmare that Beaulac, Louisiana thought had ended three years ago, but now he’s back for an encore and leaving every indication on the flesh of his victims that he is well-versed in demonic lore. Kara might be one of the only cops in the town to stop him because she is the only one who has studied the case files of the murders in a the past. Between the murderer, demon and a handsome yet disapproving FBI agent dogging her waking footsteps, she may be in way over her head!

I am very excited for the next installment in this series called BLOOD OF THE DEMON. I really love the story line and characters and cannot wait to see what Rowland has in store for us in the next book!
