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

Review: Secrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland

Secrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland

My rating:
Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?! 


Homicide detective Kara Gillian has a special talent: she can sense the "arcane" in our world, and there's quite a bit of it, even in Beaulac, Louisiana. She's also a summoner of demons, and works on a task force that deals with supernatural crimes. Her partners are attractive and smart FBI agents, but they're not summoners, and they're not telling Kara why they are on this special force with her.
To make things worse, Kara has pledged herself to one of the most powerful of demons-a Demon Lord-who helped save her partner's life, but now expects things in return. Meanwhile, she's trying to solve a string of murders that are somehow tied together by money, sex, rock music and...mud. But how can she concentrate on the case when she's not even sure who-or what-her partners are?

My Thoughts:

Best. Installment. Yet.

I can honestly say, this series is more than freshing, and always on my top list. I really enjoyed both "Mark of the Demon" and "Blood of the Demon", but I have to say, I loved "Secrets of the Demon."

If you haven't read the first to novels in this series, then I suggust you do before reading this novel. You'll get quite lost with the characters actions and backgrounds, not to mention to tension between some characters. Even if it was a stand alone novel, I'd recommend you read them all, because they're such a good read.

"Secrets of a Demon" starts with Kara at a club, listening to music outside her comfort zone. She's there on duty, investigating a threat to the bands singer Lida. Quicky in, the action starts, with a kidnapping attempt, and a whole lot of questions.

Kara and Detective Ryan Kristoff are still tense with eachother, or at least Ryan is with her. Things with them seem to be at arms length, but neither seem to really want it that way.
Demon Lord Rhyzkahl has interest in Kara, and athough she doesn't want to admit it, he interests her right back. Interests her enough to say yes to much he says or asks... If you catch my drift. ;) Shes starting to enjoy his company, but she still has strong feelings for Ryan, if only they could act on them.
Then there's Ryans secret. What's so big that he can't tell Kara? Sure everyone has their secrets, but Ryans seems to be a doozie.
And if that doesn't seem to be enough, now there's a murderer, that seems to be out for the band and it's members. Kara doesn't seem to have it easy with this case. Espeically when people want it hushed, including the mayor. But when does Kara ever have it easy, right?

This was jam packed with exciting twists, odd magic, suspence and senuialty. I hate that it ended, and I'm left begging for more. As endings go, it could NOT have been better. The last page of the novel is brilliant!
I tip my hat to you Mrs. Rowland.
