    More About the Author

    Conroe wrote his first readable novel, God Touched, right after finishing his daughter's copy of Twilight and muttering: "Vampires don't farging sparkle!"

    With five more books in the series and a stand alone novel (Black Frost), he doesn't seem to be slowing down. He cut his reading teeth on the likes of Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, JRR Tolkien, Robert Heinlein, Andre Norton, and H. Beam Piper.

    Financial professional by day and author by night (actually by morning), he bangs out his stories with fingers that are usually sore from forge burns or getting beat up at the dojo.

    Check him out at www.johnconroe.com or Like the Demon Accords page on Facebook.

    "John Conroe's first book does more than display his familiarity with the currently popular sub-genre of vampire stories. It also showcases a truly individual and engaging storytelling
    voice. With intelligence and sly humor, Conroe has crafted a tale that is more than mere genre fiction. It's a truly engagingand rewarding read." - Joseph Bruchac, Award winning author of WOLF MARK and KILLER OF ENEMIES,
    as well as best selling co-author of the DOWN TO EARTH series.




    "These are hugely enjoyable books. Fast-paced and gripping - tightly plotted explorations of power. Fans of Jim Butcher and Benedict Jacka take note! These are great." -Conn Iggulden, acclaimed author of THE CONQUEROR series and THE EMPEROR series.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Spookynatural romp: effortlessly enjoyable 7 Jun. 2014
    By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    In a neat reversal of the usual `girl meets vamp, girl falls madly for vamp, girl nearly gets eaten by vamp in every episode' storyline... boy meets vamp, boy falls madly for vamp, and vice versa.
    As it happens, Chris is a buffed-up, natural-born demon hunter and so far as he knew he was on his own as far as battling supernatural Hellborne went. After hooking up with the vampire clan he suddenly meets a whole bunch of other preternatural creatures, and a police department dedicated to keeping tabs on them. Inevitably, Stuff Happens to him after exchanging blood with his new toothsome beau - making him stronger, faster, and altogether more interesting.

    The upshot is a totally entertaining romp; more action-adventure than heavy romance. There are some violent scenes but nothing especially graphic; ditto the sensual encounters which are kept fairly minimal. All the usual participants in supernatural stories make an appearance, from super-powerful vampire Elders to werewolves and big bad demons which inhabit houses and haunt children. But author John Conroe has a few new tricks up his sleeve, too, including a supercharged spirit guide which takes a shine to the hero after he frees it from demon-bound torment, and the notion of were-weasel assassins. Plus, the `god' of the title takes a while to put in an appearance, but when the deity finally makes an appearance it's just the boost which this book needs to propel the reader into the second in the series.

    Interestingly, the author also comes up with a lot of biological detail about the possible nature of vampirism, as well as its effects on the hero's metabolism.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Fair urban fantasy at a very reasonable price 8 Mar. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Reasonably priced, solid urban fantasy with a mix of vampires and the other classic supernatural characters living unknown in New York. Main character is an exorcist (along with other powers) who becomes aware of existence of other supernatural beings in New York when he rescues a vampire from a demon possessed assassin.
    From my perspective it isn’t at the level of other recently released urban fantasy books which is why I gave it three stars but it is definitely on the high side of this rating and worth the purchase if you are a heavy reader looking for a decent new author in this space.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! 19 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Loved this book and eager to start the next in the series! A very well written book with the right mix of action, romance (I was actually pleased there were no graphic sex scenes these would have lowered the overall quality of the story) and secret societies/departments. I think this will be a series I'll read over and over, the only other series that has achieved that before was the Heku series. The action scenes were very detailed and I have to admit to skimming over some of them, but I'm not that heavily into violence so I'm sure others will love the detail in them.

    Highly recommend!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Readable 27 Jun. 2014
    By HJones
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A few small spoilers so please don't read unless you don't mind that!

    Whilst this book was ok I won't be purchasing the others. The female character makes very little sense and the male is real wish fulfillment! (Ripped at 2% body fat despite having to eat absolutely loads {if only!}, wealthy, able to kick the crap out of vampires, weres, and demons, better at it than anyone else including the professionals...you get the picture.) There didn't seem to be a lot of thought into making these characters more rounded; the female is basically just beautiful and deadly and inexplicably immediately totally in love with the male with no real dialogue or thought behind it (unless it's that 2% thing again), and the bloke is just all go and no downsides. The female really lacks dimenson.

    I gave this an extra star for the bear though, which I really enjoyed and thought added an extra something to the book. Coming on top of all the other abilities the protagonist has I don't think he really needed a huge demon bear spirit to add to his list as well, but it was well written and enjoyable.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure to the extreme 16 May 2015
    By GOTTON TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I don't know if somehow the copy I bought of this novel was a first or maybe second draft but there were definitely a lot of flaws in this book. From excessive (and I do mean to the extreme) use of exclamation marks, many typos, missing words and sometimes extra seemingly random sentence fragments somehow surviving the editing process, there is a great deal about the writing of this book that can make it a little hard to read at times. Add on top of that the fact that some of the scenes are overly long from constantly repeating the same points and it is easy to say that this is a book in need of a good editor.

    So what does that add up to? Well surprisingly it doesn't add up to a bad book, it instead adds up to a seriously fun and enjoyable book that left me so eager for the next book in the series that I ended up reading all the books currently available before I found the time to write this review.

    It is often very easy to overlook what is, in my opinion, the single most important thing a book needs to be: enjoyable. God touched is definitely that to the extreme and because of this it is easy to overlook the many flaws in the writing, flaws that are gradually ironed out as the series progresses and the writer gets more experience.

    Overall I would class this as a guilty pleasure read. It's a book that is a bit trashy, filled with overly powered beings, littered with cliches and basically I loved every moment of it.

    I would recommend this book to people who are looking for a fun, adventurous and easy reading book rather than literary perfection. Be warned though, I picked up this book and because of how much I loved it, a week of my life has been consumed by the rest of the series.
