    One thought on “Sins of the Demon”

    1. This may come as a complete shock to you guys, but I know a thing or two about urban fantasy. Not too much, mind you, but enough to recognize a good UF novel when I read one. Here’s what I can tell you: Diana Rowland is one of the best. Whenever I get my hands on her latest novel, I’m absolutely certain that I will enjoy it immensely. Sins of the Demon picks up just a few weeks after the great discovery at the end of the third book. Now that she finally knows what he is, Kara would like noth [...]

    2. Here's where we start getting some world building and I'm doing a happy dance. It's not that much, of course, but anytime I get a peek into a hell dimension (even one that seems to be as nice as this,) I get all giddy.Mind you, this isn't even that significant to the story, but I love my little quirky loves. :)Oh, and this novel gives a whole new dimension to relationship woes. I'm not going to spoil it, but ex's can be hell on a story. :) Poor Kara!I also need to say that I really love her body [...]

    3. Ok so when I reviewed the last 3 books in this series they were very positive and I enjoyed them very much and gave them 4 stars. This book took this series to a whole new level and I have to say, "OMG I LOVED THIS BOOK!"Soo, Kara has gotten REALLY interesting, there is a great mystery plot that is tied into Kara herself, plus someone from the demon world is attempting to summon HER there against her will, which is cool. Her demon protector Eihlahn is literally the funnest character in the serie [...]

    4. Interested in more of my reviews? Visit my blog!Final Page Thoughts *ahem* Excuse the language, but what the HELL kind of ending was that?! No, I’m sorry, that wasn’t an ending… that was more like a chapter ending, except my book must have been missing the subsequent pages. AHHH! What a cliffhanger. And now we have to wait a whole YEAR!? Is it available for pre-order yet?? Someone shoot me now. *Sobs*Something that’s been ongoing in this series for a while, a bit of an issue with Kara, i [...]

    5. Things I should not do: review this book immediately after reading it. That sort of thing colours your perceptions and prevents objectivity.Things I am going to do any way: review this book immediately after reading it. Holy mother of crud on a fish cracker, but I thought the last Demons book ended on a cliff hanger. I'd go and spoil it for you but nah - you should just go read it . If you liked the first three you'll like this one too - more demons (new and old!) more secrets, some answers, but [...]

    6. Really? That's the cover? WOW that's awful! The original art for the first two books was beautiful & then book 3 had that comic book cheese art & this just looks like a doodle by some 15 year-old emo perv kid! If I didn't know how amazing Diana's writing was (aka new to the series) that art work would have me running in the other direction! Still looking forward to the book but damn that's a cheesy cover!Okay now that I've read the book, the cover art is the only bad thing about it! I wo [...]

    7. Holy moly. What an ending!!!! If you have any intention of reading this series, all I can say to you is buy them all at once, because as soon as you finish one, you will want to start the next one. I am so anxious to keep reading that I can barely stay disciplined enough to share my thoughts before I rip in to book 5. But this book definitely deserves praise, so let me give credit where it is due.One of the many things I loved about this book is that the mystery is all centered around Kara. Her [...]

    8. Anytime I'm really pissed because the book ended in a cliffhanger, I know I loved the story. If I hate the cliffhanger, it means I cared about what was going on in the book to what to know what will happen next. This cliffhanger rivals only one other cliffhanger Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between and the book was just as good.I love this series. I love the characters. I WANT THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!!

    9. I always find it difficult to start a review for a book that I have mixed feelings about. I'm unsure of what I want to discuss first and I don't always know what to say when someone asks me if I enjoyed it.I think I did. Mostly. Sort of. I'm not sorry that I read it, but I'm not eager to initiate conversations about it with my book reading buddies either. So I guess that it ultimately falls into the "it was okay" category.It was easy to transition myself back into the world that Rowland has crea [...]

    10. HOLY. CLIFFHANGER. BATMAN!!!**The only reason I'm not EXTREMELY freaking out about this ending, is because the next book in the series is being released in a couple of weeksotherwise, I think I would be ranting**This was by far my favorite book in the series. The Author's world, and character building has progressed wonderfully since the beginning of the series.The writing, bantering between characters, and 'wicked' humor is what has kept me reading, and wanting more.However, I have a confession [...]

    11. I know already that not all my sentences are going to make sense. I'm literately vibrating with excitement, confusion, anger and sorrow. I'm excited with how fantastic this book was, confused with where the turn of events will take us, angry that it ended and sad that I have to wait a full year to find out what's to come. I mean, come onI love a good cliffhanger, but that was just mean. Brilliant. But mean. Okay, I'll try to make a somewhat normal review, although all I want to do is rant and ra [...]

    12. wow! check that cover out! that's freaky! is that skeleton head licking her face?very interesting cover. i'm more curious about what it's hiding thoughe oooooooooooon more Rhyzkahl!* * *=( not as much Rhyzkahl as i would have liked. and that ending is just plain mean Diana Rowland!

    13. After the dramatic ending of Secrets of the Demon, Diana Rowland is back with a vengeance with her fourth Kara Gillian novel, Sins of the Demon, that serves to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.Despite all that has been thrown at her during the course of the past year, between murders with heavy demonic influence, her ties with a demon lord, and the discovery of another demon lord in hiding, Kara has managed to come out ahead. Unfortunately, someone is now trying to summ [...]

    14. My Exact thoughts when SINS OF THE DEMON ended " Holy crap what just happened? NO you CANT END THERE." WOW WOW WOW. This is hard to write without spoilers but I will try super hard.Kara is a fantastic lead character. I absolutely love all the police procedure stuff and investigating skills that Diana writes in. The world building is great, I love the different classes of demons and their descriptions. I have no problem picturing all of them and imagining them in our world. I was completely shock [...]

    15. This time, we get to see more of a “human” side to the demons: specially Kara’s live in bodyguard/roommate. Their antics had me cracking up many times; but it wasn’t only there, the Demon Lord Rhyzkahl seems to be showing a softer side towards Kara, he can be almost tender with her, and not just during the throws of passion. HmmmKara is given more and more clues on the big mystery that is Ryan; even though none of the demons can answer questions directly, and Ryan has absolutely no recal [...]

    16. *sputters* OMG! That ending! Just.JustOMGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I hate cliffhangers and @#$%ing @#$% what a cliffhanger that was!I think my head just exploded.

    17. OMG! This books ending! It's just Wow! I can't wait for the next book!Kara Gillian is a homicide detective and a demon summoner, so her life is both interesting and complicated. Most of the bad guys also have supernatural, demon summoning abilities, so it's not easy to do her job. Besides she has quite complicating love life, after all she sleeps with a demon lord Rhyzkahl and she suspects Ryan Kristoff being a demon lord.

    18. Omg, omg, omg, omg, omg! There I said itI have to say more? But I already said it, omg! I raced through the whole book and then the end. I kicked myself for not having the next book, and then I ordered it at once. Now I have to wait DAYS, DAYS I tell you for it to arrive. I am dying here. I am dying for that ending was brutal. BRUTAL. If I was not a fangirl of Rowland I certainly became one now. And Kara Gillian turned into one of my fav UF series around.Ok here is where I tell you something abo [...]

    19. 4.8Awesome. Just purely awesome.The beginning was a little slow but absolutely worth it as everything adds up. Not necessarily nicely (because it's Kara Gillian's life after all) but it all comes together.Can't really give a review because this is brand spanking new and there's no way that a Spoiler cut is going to stop me from spoiling something.Needless to say, there are a lot of things answered but every single answer seems to kick up new questions. There is a declaration that made me squeal [...]

    20. Hell, hell, hell!1) This is an hell of a story: less procedural cop, more darker UF.2) Hell: more denizen of it than ever before, more detailed. (But less demon lord.)3) What the hell? If you dislike cliff endings, wait before buying. This book ends with a huge bang (both because of what remains uncovered and what's revealed). Honestly, I hate to know I'll have to wait a full year before knowing what's going on.

    21. Another great instalment, but it does come with a rather brutal cliffhanger- just as well I already have the next book.So far the series doesn't show any sign of slowing down, Kara is definitely one of my favourite urban fantasy kickass characters.

    22. Good. The ending was pretty great, but I'm realizing I have no real emotional bond to Kara. Even after 4 books.

    23. totally loving this series. enjoying all the characters. Kara can be a little dopey, especially with her questions, seriously, think ahead girl! but man, kind of a cliffhanger at the end of this one, so I am thrilled I have book five around here somewhere to start soon. Read these in order. You would be able to get enjoyment, but having the background on the characters makes things much more fun.

    24. Halfway though this book i gave up. I don't remember why but It had something to do with Kara and Ryan and their disregarded feelings for each other. I should have kept reading until the end. It was good. But the ridiculous amount of swearing in this book is also annoying. I mean, every other word out of Kara's mouth was some sort of curse word. I don't remember her being like this in the first book.

    25. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English review Je suis toujours contente de retrouver Kara Gillian dans une nouvelle de ses aventures. Diana Rowland est toujours un maître dans l’art de créer des intrigues qui nous gardent en haleine tout au long de chacune de ses histoires. Celle-ci ne déroge pas à la coutume.Kara doit une fois de plus faire face aux conséquences de son association avec son démon. Mais même avec un garde du corps qui sort de l’ordinaire, sa protection reste toujours assez co [...]

    26. Series hit it's stride with this bookPiss, Piss and more piss, I could have done without all the piss in the alleyways. For a small town they sure do have a lot of alley pissers!One major problem I have with this series despite me liking it is that, I don't know what Kara gets from summoning demons, none Judeo/Christian constructs, except for becoming hunted since she started to summon demons. As a teen learning about the arcane gave her purpose and took her off a very rocky path. Honestly she m [...]

    27. Sins of the Demon is the fourth novel in an Urban Fantasy series that combines police procedurals with other realms, demon summoning with crime mysteries.In this sequel Kara is still trying to figure out the mystery of Ryan while fighting alongside him trying to save her tail from being summoned. Creepy. The summoner has become the summoned, and she’s determined to avoid being sucked into the demon realm while silencing a serial killer’s spree in our realm. Meanwhile she has a new demon body [...]
