    It s fascinating when what should have been a police procedural with demon summoning goes sideways This isn t a bad thing in my opinion I mean, think about it You get kidnapped to a demon dimension, learn a bunch of stuff about the arcane, and then come back many months later should you really expect to keep your job after such a leave Can you really hope to explain your experience, of being tortured, branded, of falling in love again with a demon lord, of coming into possession a massively powe [...]

    This was a difficult book for me to review since I have read every book in this series This was neither my least favorite nor was it the best in the series for me.This book felt a bit incomplete since the overarching storyline did not see much movement it would seem in many ways This felt like book 1 of a trilogy in that it had a firm beginning and ending while leaving you thirsting for but I felt that in all the crushing revelations of these last few books that the story we bought those first [...]

    Ugh I am growing and disheartened by the direction this series is going in These books started as police procedurals with paranormal elements Our heroine was a cop who also summoned demons She was relatable She liked donuts She hated exercise She was kind of lonely, with a sort of kooky aunt and mentor as her only family Over the course of the first few books, she found her niche as a homicide detective She made a few friends and fell in love And then, really, what the hell happened The past f [...]

    Well, well, well, this book did NOT live up to my high expectations at all Full review to come.Update OH.GOD That cover Is it Kara s or is it Jill Zack s I m salivating April 7th 2015 Sigh I m ordering you to write and finish this book as soon as possible Coz I m tapping my feet impatiently here But what can I do, it s not like I m ready to torture this sequel out of you, view spoiler like Rhyzkahl did to Kara hide spoiler right One request, though hot demon lovin Pretty please

    YAWN I miss the older storyline with Kara summoning demons and using them to solve mysteries and catch the bad guys.This was disappointing It felt very long and there isn t plot or character development Though big reveals of Zach and Ryan s identities were made in the last book, they weren t really dealt with Ugly things are happening to them but again it wasn t explored, just touched on as an afterthought.Meanwhile what I felt to be a huge reveal regarding Katashi was made early on and I felt i [...]

    I missed Diana Rowland s writing she puts genuinely laugh out loud funny lines in the middle of top notch, nail biting action scenes She does the unusual twist of taking a character you once liked and making you despise them the next book or vice versa This isn t a perfect book, but it s close to five star rating.I dig Kara she s great to friends, loyal, fair, doesn t pick on people for their differences, has a fun sense of humor and realistic self esteem On the negative side, she gets too cocky [...]

    I tried, but I simply never got interested in the story At all I skimmed to 90% and read to the end to see if it would revive my interest Nothing Nada Not even Mzatal, Rhyzkahl getting his come uppance, or the importance of Jill s baby piqued my interest to go back and read Oh, and apparently Ryan is gone for good now that Szerain is in control of his body and has squashed his essence out Kara didn t even get to say goodbye to her friend former lover I truly enjoyed this series in the early boo [...]

    3.5 StarsOriginally posted at The Bookaholic CatVengeance of the Demon is the seventh book in the Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland.Vengeance of the Demon starts couple of days after the events in Fury of the Demon book sixth Kara is dealing with the legal aftermath of what happened at the Farouche s Plantation, while trying to stabilize the nodes with the help of Idris and Bryce and the unexpected assistance of Pellini Kara s circumstances also change dramatically in this book and she learns [...]

    I m beginning to lose patience with this series Diana Rowland is an excellent writer and where this story has gone is amazing, and Kara Gillian is a fascinating character.But.We re on book 7 now.And the pace of the revelation of what s really going on is glacial.A case in point that I can get away with talking about because it s on the covers Kara s tattoos that were inflicted upon her in a horrible ritual several books ago We still don t know what they re for We don t know what they re for now [...]

    I ve hung on through the past 2 books when the series took over the top dramatic changes in direction This was just UGH for me I love this series so much, it used to be one of my FAVORITES, and this book just finally took it to places that I can t follow I m disappointed, and let down and my trust in the author is bruised Not sure I m going to continue Sad.

    This story was overly complicated I had difficulties keeping things charecters straight The protagonist seems to have changed from the first few books which is ok except the world has changed as well The results of which make me feel this is not the same series I started I purchased this book as an audible even a great narrator couldn t persuade me to to continue listening till the end This book became a chore i was absolutely forcing myself to listen My attention span kept wondering to the poin [...]

    There are some potentially major SPOILERS in this post depending on your POV Also some profanity.I read the book overnight insomnia is good for some things so this is mostly just first impressions reactions that I ve tried to make coherent.I ll also add that if this is a series you read for general leisure among your vast reading list, you really should go back and reread Probably from the beginning There is a glossary at the end, but the glossary covers terms, not previous plot points that got [...]

    Wow This one is a tough one to review without spoilers, so if it seems I m not saying a lot, that s why Once I started reading, I couldn t put it down For anyone wondering, it a takes place on Earth Also, there s a glossary at the end which I wish I d seen before I was halfway through the book Though I m pretty good at tracking names, it was helpful for some I needed a hint in order to remember.Kara s come a long way since the beginning No angsty ruminations about her love life She has some tou [...]

    Diana Rowland s Kara Gillian series is a vastly underrated urban fantasy series in my opinion She takes fantastical elements and makes them work in a sensible yet intriguing way The main character, Kara Gillian cop and demon summoner, has shown a fair amount of growth through the series but I think the strength of the writing really lies through the plotting and overall story arcs There aren t very many writers who have made me excited with such an about face turn of events when it comes to the [...]

    Reviewed for theereaderjunkie.wordpressInstead of writing a review of that particular novel, I m going to review how I feel about the whole series.Really, it started out great demons, action, mystery, good characters, interesting plots and all that I was enthusiastic.Then came book 5 and it threw me off was it really written by the same author Why were the characters acting out of part I didn t really like it, but gave the series another chance Book 6 sort of reassured me, it wasn t absolutely e [...]

    I have been on a paranormal reading spree, and the whole shebang was a bust Maybe I have read all the good stuff that was available, and now I am just scraping the bottom of the barrel, trying to make something of the gunk Maybe it s the fact that all paranormal books tend to stretch in to lengthy series and authors get lost in their own ideas I don t know But I also don t care Diana Rowland showed much promise, and I feel a bit betrayed with how this whole thing turned out The Kara Gillian seri [...]

    The seventh novel in the Kara Gillian series has proven to be my favorite I stayed up to the wee hours of the night finishing it The imagery is breathtaking and even now as I find myself writing this review, my mind is still wrapped up in the world Diane Rowland has brilliantly weaved together The entire novel evoked the emotional range from love to fear and everything in between, but when the people you love the most in your life are the ones who have betrayed you so thoroughly, where does that [...]

    This one felt like another filler Sure, it was still good, just, filler The only thing happened is that Jill gives birth, no surprise there After all there is a baby on the cover.The bad peeps are still bad.The good peeps are still good.Kara is in trouble after the last book Someone saw her and that is not good so she is under investigation.Zach is hiding Jill is soon to pop Ryan is avoiding her And I am all, hey where did all the man candy go Suddenly she had no love life at all Pooh But yes fi [...]

    I m going crazy that this book is taking a few extra months to be published this year All the previous came out in January, gahhhhh

    First thought when I turned the page and found the glossary That s it That was like a non ending Wtf Warning I can t spell their names worth shitAlright seriously this book barely has any resolution and we really don t know all that is going on and who the other demon is that is backing the lords Zack is still down and out due to his breaking of ties to Rhyzakal sp and her friend Jill right is pregnant and Zack isn t even there for her Ryan as Szeraine is off doing things and keeping Kara out of [...]

    Its clear to me now that Rowland really had no idea where she was headed with this series when she started it Actually, maybe she had a very rough general idea but like so many authors of too long running series, the extended book deal for installments in a series has significantly altered her plan now a great story has been drawn out into a bloated very jumped shark Either way she has done such a poor transitional job with the overall plot line that none of it feels right any I m about to tear [...]

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty Kara is wrapped up into all kinds of craziness, all while trying to help her pregnant friend out.Opening Sentence Accessory after the fact.Excerpt YesThe Review I am assuming this book picks up shortly after book 6, Fury of the Demon ends Kara is trying to assist a detective looking into the murder of Farouche without giving away what she really knows about what happened What actually happened was the taking down of Rhyzkahl, a demon who had used K [...]

    Review originally posted on my blog A Book ObsessionThis one is going to be a bit difficult to review While I never found myself losing interest, and was continually able to stay easily focused on the story, it just wasn t as engrossing as I would have liked The book seemed to meander throughout a lot of different things to the point where there just didn t seem to be any focus Don t get me wrong, it was an enjoyable read, I just don t feel like there was a clear plot or even resolution of much [...]

    So first off let me just say that I really loved this series The first four books were fantasitc Gripping, interesting, nicely paced and I enjoyed all the characters However, for me I have felt that things have been on a decline since the fifth book The last several books have really just kinda felt like they are chalked full of filler This book was no exception I miss the old dynamics of the group I do realize that to tell a story you have to change things up but Ms Rowland has changed them so [...]

    I don t even know what to think right nowI m that conflicted Do I love what happened or do I absolutely hate it Can I do both I think I ll go ahead and do both Though I can t help but give only 4 stars, precisely because I m deeply conflicted about the events that happened At the same time I have a feeling all will be well in the end, or rather I will like the outcome of the decisions that were made in this book Bummer that I have to wait a year to get that sense of all is right in the world s.a [...]

    I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.When I started this book, I thought I knew what was going to happen Boy, was I wrong VENGEANCE OF THE DEMON will take you on a wild ride The characters and the story line are very well developed You will see a lot of Demons come to Beaulac to try to prevent Kara and the others from symmetrization of the valves to balance the flow.We will see Demon Lords helping out , that we would never help Kara We will have a betrayal of one we [...]

    This book was a major disappointment for me It felt like it took forever to read and even then my attention kept wandering in the hopes it would get better It didn t I felt like there was a lot of needless profanity and this book is a setup for what is to come in the series It gave some answers but you ended up with questions than when you started with this book I m not going to give much away with spoilers but if you do not follow the series than you definitely do not want to start with this b [...]
