The successful summoning in the end of Sins of The Demon brings Kara to demons realm, and all the next book she spends there re-learning and re-evaluating everything she knows. It's daring and awesome and strongly reminds me of World of Warcraft with its computer game-like sense of reality. The reader's emotions go through a roller coaster along with the main heroine's. Characters come and go, some stay your friends, others become your enemies... and some others blow your mind and just click as something right.
I loved that Kara had that. I loved that she found a new strength in her abilities and her new circumstances. She didn't break, she didn't wallow in her sorrows, she just got very angry and kicked butt. Anyway, I wholly recommend this series and can't wait to read the next installment which comes out this month. Read this.
I found Touch of the Demon to be too long, 100 pages could have easily been cut from this book. This instalment is set in the Demon realm, which is not hell it is another plane of existence. Whilst enjoyable the descriptions of the Demon realm were plentiful and I eventually got bored of reading about them. But it was Kara that really didn't do it for me. Now it is some time since I read the earlier books and if I did a re-read maybe I would change my mind, but I found her character changed in this one. Kara went all a bit Anita Blake with everyone fancying her and Kara sharing intimate moments with other men (unlike Anita it was not all at the same time though) and I found it tiresome.
New characters are introduced and I thought they fit in well with the series and I'm pleased that they are there. There are big shocks in store though, HUGE shocks in fact and I applaud Ms Rowland for taking those steps. I do love an author upsetting the apple cart.
I will definitely be carrying on with this series and I'm hopeful that the next book will be better for me. I am probably in the minority with my views on Touch of the Demon so don't let it put you off reading it and I'm going to give it 3 stars.
