Short Review: Vengeance of the Demon by Diana Rowland


Title: Vengeance of the Demon
Author: Diana Rowland
Series: Kara Gillian, book 7
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: DAW
Source: Review copy from publisher
Format: E-book
Demon summoner Kara Gillian is on the wrong side of the law, and there's evidence to prove it. Too bad the courts don't accept "fighting demonic forces" as justification for murder and mayhem.

Yet Kara has problems that go way beyond her legal woes. When the enemy demonic lords spur their human accomplices into high gear, master summoner Katashi aggressively pursues their goal to establish a permanent gate between Earth and the demon realm. To hell with the consequences for humanity.

The line between ally and enemy blurs as Kara gathers the remnants of her posse to prevent a devastating demonic incursion, but a shattered trust may cost them the war and put Kara behind bars. With treachery rife, and her loved ones in danger, Kara must call upon the essence of who she truly is in order to rally back from a crushing loss.

And if she can't, the world is going straight to hell.
Vengeance 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 some hard truths that make her reconsider everything she thought she knew. New loyalties are formed and other ties are irreparably broken in this installment. The little romance from previous books is absent in Vengeance of the Demon, but there is plenty of heartache to go around.

Many things happened in Vengeance of the Demon, but at the same time nothing really happened. This book was more like a setup for the things that are to come than anything else. It’s also a book that even though it gives us many clues, it leaves us with more questions than answers.

Although not my favorite in the series, Vengeance of the Demon is a book that fans of this series need to read. I don’t recommend reading this book as a stand-alone.

My Verdict: 3 ½ Paws

  1. Drat. I'm sorry that this one didn't quite do it for you. I'm still interested in checking the series out further though, b/c I really love a good demon-focused UF series, and I know you said other installments were better ;)
