Demonfire – Kate Douglas (release date 2/23/10)

Demonfire – Kate Douglas  * I received this ARC/book free from the author for review purposes*

 Product Description:

Since time began, the Earth has served as a balance between the world of darkness that is the Abyss, and the paradise known as Eden. Now the battle between good and evil has reached a tipping point, and survival depends on one fallen demon— and the woman he can’t resist…

A demon too good for hell, a pragmatic newspaper reporter, a tiny will o’the wisp and a mongrel dog have seven days to save the world — or all hell breaks loose…

Garden gnomes are mean & evil just ask Eddy Marks.  Calm, conservative & level headed Eddy can’t believe her eyes when she finds one of her garden gnomes attacking a naked man in her shed.

Dax, an unlikely hero, was sent to Earth to battle his fellow Demons that have escaped from the vortex.  He only has seven days to complete this impossible task with the help of Eddy, her dog Bumper, Willow and a Lemurian that turned his back on his world to help save ours.

The story takes place in the quite town of Evergreen, California and centers around Eddy and Dax.  All over town ceramic statues are coming to life and attacking the citizens.  The attacks are becoming bolder and more dangerous; it’s up to this fallen demon to stop them.

Dax was given a human body to use for seven days, his demon powers are contained in a snake tattoo that starts on his chest and winds down his body to his leg.  The snake tattoo has a mind of its own and wants to break free.  Eddy is the only one with the power to sooth the snake and keeps it from killing him.

I loved this story, it’s the classic tale of good vs evil.  The characters are intriguing and have you rooting for them to win.  I loved Eddy’s character because she has such a strong personality.  She thinks her dad is crazy for believing in all this paranormal stuff when she knows it’s not real.  Then she meets Dax and all that changes; through it all she develops a new respect for her dad.

Dax’s character is very enduring.  He’s been a demon for so many years then he’s thrown into a human body where he has to learn how to do everything for himself.  I loved watching him go through that learning process all the while falling hopelessly in love with Eddy.

There are parts of the story that are a little slow because this is a new series that has to have the world set up for it.  The battle scenes are a little repetitive but each one is set up differently, whether it’s the location, who is involved in the battle or how the statues are attacked.  I loved the little glance we got into Lemuria we got because it helps to set up Hellfire the next book in the series.

Overall I loved this book and was honored that Kate chose me for one of the ARC’s.    I can’t wait for this book to come out.  I highly recommend it and give it 4 flaming hearts.

  1. It sounds wonderful. Lucky you to get an ARC.

  2. Thanks Cyndi,

    I really liked it and think Kate did good. It’s a lot different from her Wolf Tales books.

  3. Heather–thanks so much for the review, and I’m really glad you enjoyed the story. It’s always fun to wander into a new world and see what’s going to happen next, and Dax was definitely a surprise for me.

    I really appreciate your review! Thank you,
    kate
