4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 14 Feb 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It was an interesting story with the demon inside Eric's body taking over control and Eric's soul is in jeopardy. Some moments were terribly hard. I just got a little upset when Kate didn't seem sure what (or who) she wants.

Once again, Stuart features my favorite scene and that proves how he's so my hero!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 5 of the series. 6 Oct 2009
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
It has been three weeks since Kate Connor learned about the demon dwelling within the new body of her late husband, Eric Crowe. Kate is trying to focus on how to terminate the demon without killing Eric - again. You see, Kate is a Demon-Hunter. Married to her Hunter partner, Eric, until his first death, Kate finished grieving and now has a new family. This means Kate is torn between her late husband and her current husband, Stuart.

Stuart Connor is up-to-date on Kate's secret life as a Demon-Hunter. He has even stop running for county attorney and begun renovating old homes to resale. In his spare time, Stuart helps care for their toddler son. At night, Stuart trains to fight demons with Kate and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Allie Crowe. After all, Stuart has a family to protect.

Even though Kate has learned about the bound demon, Odayne, Eric has still been keeping vital secrets. He must break down and reveal how Odayne got within him if Kate has any hope of saving Eric's soul. There is not much time left either, because Odayne has become strong enough to start taking temporary control of Eric. To make matters worse, Odayne's ancient demon-lover shows up to help the demon merge and become one with Eric.

Life in San Diablo has always been interesting, but lately it has become ... well, Hell.

***** FIVE STARS! Author Julie Kenner is famous for creating intriguing characters, pitting them against overwhelming odds, and then tossing in more than just a few pot holes along the road to cause chaos. This is the fifth book in the series and the story has yet to slow down or begin to bore. New readers will not find themselves totally lost; however, they may be confused a time or two. No matter. I have no doubt that they will be fascinated and rush out to pick up all the previous titles. This is an outstanding series that continues to be a winner! *****

4.0 out of 5 stars This mom will kick your butt! 7 Dec 2009
By CandysRaves (and Rants) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love these books. They are so much fun. Suburbia meets hell (or is it hell?) with demons in your pantry, kidnapping your kid and generally just pissing you off. I first found this series at my local Barnes & Noble here in Austin. I always check out the "local authors" section when they have up a display and figured I needed something silly and new to read. My friend said they were good, so I bought a couple of them and have been hooked ever since.

This one starts out kinda rough. The author tried to hard to give us some back story. Understandable, I guess, because it had been a while. I think a quick little run down would have been easier though. *laugh* Something like a fast-paced "this and this and this". (Okay, I just heard the "and this is what you missed on *Glee*" in my head - and if you don't watch Glee, you have no clue what I'm talking about, so just move on along).

The story itself is a lot of fun! I kinda want to smack Kate at this point though with the whole two loves thing. At least things ended how I wanted them to, I guess. I dunno. I just can't wait until Timmy kills his first bad guy! Go, Timmy, Go! (okay, is it horrible of me to want to see a toddler knife a demon?)

Overall, this series is very consistent. It's funny, it's quirky, it's a little sassy and it's very well edited. I can't find a mention on when the next one is due out, which means it'll be a long while. Apparently the author has other series she's working on - damn her!

This is a great series for the moms (and not) out there that like a good laugh. check out the whole series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Julie is a great writer... 1 Mar 2010
By Ashber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say that Julie Kenner is a great writer. Her book is tight, well paced and it keeps you on pins and needs the entire time.

Spoilers:

On that note, I have to say that I was disappointed with the ending and that characters. If I was a mother, with a toddler, I would not allow my husband who has already walked out of the family once due to that monsters are real, walk out again and take my toddler with him. For a Demon slayer, Kate a wuss when it comes to her man.
While I can see her husband running out once out of panic, twice is not acceptable. Time to bust out the divorce papers.
While there was the "happy ending" how happy is it?
My feelings on this series are up in the air. I will read the next in the series but if Kate's husband doesn't grow a pair, I wont be buying the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Hearts from TRS! 17 Dec 2009
By Tina Pavlik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"All of the Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom stories have been cute. It is fun to imagine tying to live like a normal mom with the "little" complication of hunting and killing demons on the side. This one is still cute but I am starting to tire of the conflicting feelings Kate has trying to love the two very different men in her life. I'm ready for her first husband Eric to move on and for Kate to recognize that she needs to acknowledge that she has moved on too or lose Stuart and her current family. I want Eric to move on but not to die. In this story to rid the world of the demon, Kate may have to make the ultimate sacrifice and kill Eric. It is a terrible decision to have to make. At the same time, Allie is learning to defend herself, throw knives, and fight demons but she'll never be old enough or ready to lose her father to demon possession. This is an impossible complication and a devastating situation to have to deal with. What if Kate does have to kill Eric, can she live with that and can Allie? If you have enjoyed the other books in this series, you will not want to miss the latest episode. If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend you start with the first book!" - Steph B.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decisions Are Never Easy 24 Oct 2009
By Nancy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Though this book starts out a bit choppy with too much rehashing of previous relationships and storylines, Kenner finally settles down and once again the reader is vicariously enjoying Kate's life as a wife, mom and demon hunter.

Now that Stuart knows Kate's part time job, he has decided to give up his run for political office and is now training to help Kate in her nightly forays into demon hunting. Unfortunately, this time it gets a bit too close to home and Kate's family is in real danger. You don't threaten a demon hunters family, so Kate kicks this one up a notch only to find out that the danger is closer then ever and she now must make a choice. Is Eric, her first husband, really who he claims to be or is he too keeping a secret deep inside.

Decisions are never easy for this demon hunting soccer mom, but now that her past is revealed, she must make choices. She isn't who she thought she was, her history has been opened and now she must move forward and it's up to Stuart if he wants to join her.
