    The Kara Gillian series has its ups and downs, fortunately mainly ups. This time the book jumps a few months ahead right in the middle of action sequence, literally, and apparently Kara has been promoted to something akin to world leader of fighting the supernatural. Everyone knows her connections to the realm and what she's about, so she has the edge when ridges start opening over the world and Earth starts going to literal hell. She even talks ...

    A lot happened in this book. So much so, I don't know what to say. I'm TEAM Ryan to my utter disappointment. I don't mind the other guy, but... Anywho, so many answers and resolutions, but there is clear set up to future books. For me, since I'm not a re-reader, I found too much time had passed. So I will feel lost until I was reminded of books long since passed. I can say I've enjoyed other books more maybe cause I listened back to back. Anyway,...

    This is definitely a series for you if you love:A: Insane powerupsB: Enormous changes in the world thanks in part to the efforts or mess-ups surrounding the characters we know and love and those we love to hate.C: Hybrid UF/Epic Fantasy.Much has been said about how this series starts off as a cool UF with a cop who can summon demons and how it becomes an epic nightmare between the demon world and Earth and now the Core with immense magical and ra...

    Prepare, people... For absolute paranoia!It's been some time since a book left me wondering just whom to trust for so long. This novel literally had me doubting everyone's motives and everything I read throughout most of the story.. So many truths are turned upside down. Not just what we thought we knew regarding the lords - but what we have believed to be true about the demonic realm as well...I categorised last year's novel as a bridge book. Th...

    Arghh, how to even review this? I am torn. It feels like the only reason I will give this a 3 is cos I like this world and these characters, but my brain realises it is only a 2. If this had been any other series it had been a 2 and I would not have read more. SIGH.From what I remember I had the same issues with the previous books. She just talked and talked and talked, they went from place to place, but nothing happened. If I had been the editor...

    LEGACY OF THE DEMON is the eighth installment in the Kara Gillian series. I have to admit, I haven’t read much of Diana Rowland’s work but I wanted to give this series a shot just because I’ve read a lot of great things about it. For one, the covers are badass but I think her writing is what carries this series.Kara Gillian is my kind of heroine. She’s kickass and cool but at the same time, she has her own set of vulnerabilities that make...

    I’ve got mixed feelings about this book. Honestly, I’ve been wavering on this series for a while now. Two things keep bringing me back to it. One: I remember how much I truly enjoyed some of the early books. And two: Diana Rowland has made me care about this heroine. It matters to me what happens to her.But there are real problems. The most obvious is the huge shift the series took a couple of books back. In this particular installment, thoug...

    I don't know how I feel about this book. This is really a tough one for me. I really enjoyed it on a lot of levels. There was really non-stop action from start to finish so it carries you through it fast enough. I didn't dislike any of the characters either, really.But, to me, it felt like a very strong shift in the story line. All the old "secrets" are just being thrown at you without prompting. It's like 8 books worth of "secrets" are shoved do...

    Well, last book I complained a bit about lack of movement in the overarching plot, loose ends that were not tied up and left me with a ton of questions .......... problem solved.This book started off with such a bang I had to go back to make sure I had not missed a book somehow but this one starts with a stressful scene and seems to go from one battle to another keeping the reader's stress level high (did me anyway), the questions I had are getti...

    Well I'm back in the world of demon summoner Kara Gillin and what a lot she has to put up with! Constantly knowing she might be the only one who can save the world and yet those bureaucrats at the FBI and Homeland Security still get in her way. You would think being Arcane Commander and the woman who came up with DIRT , not to mention Kara's connection to certain demon lords would cut her some slack but no as this book begins yet again Kara is in...

    Kara has had her power cut and is isolated away from the demon lords (except one). But she has no time to just sit back without power – her best friend is bereft, her baby is missingAnd the world is under siege – there are rifts appearing everywhere, spewing out demons, some of them completely unlike anything Kara has seen before. The world knows about demons – because they’re under constant attack and have very few experts who can actual...

    I always really like the way Rowland writes law enforcement characters, they really ring true. Which of course makes sense since she was one and worked with them in several capacities over the years. It's also a series that is currently very different from where it started out. It was very police procedural, American-based urban fantasy/romance in the beginning, then it moved completely away from the police casework entirely, and then off Earth. ...

    This is one time that I had wished I read the book instead of listening to it and not because of anything wrong with the narration, I love Liv Anderson, she has been consistent with her characters throughout the series and I have loved and looked forward to listening to her.  The issue I have is, this world is so complex and it started in the beginning of the series and now 8 books later we are starting to get answers to some of those burning qu...

    Beyond good. So different from the other books. Like you kinda need a sci-fi/fantasy PHD to process and fully get this book. It’s filled to the brim with so much information and answers and complicated twists and turns. I often felt like I was back taking organic chemistry and feeling overwhelmed. Each answers gave 5 more questions. Don’t get me wrong the story and book in general are kinda brilliant. But it’s not for the beginner or the fa...

    I would totally recommend this series to Sarah J Maas fans! Many similar elements and lots of thrill, but with more companionable atmosphere and a million times more fun. I must not forget to add that I enjoyed the subjectivity of the narration very much.One more book to go!

    Much better than the previous book, the plot moves along at a good clip, and moves the story forward.

    I gave it 3.5 starsI won't lie, I was completely lost when I started reading LEGACY OF THE DEMON. You find out pretty quick that there was a lot of information missed between book 7, VENGEANCE OF THE DEMON and now. In fact, months have passed, Kara is part of a new team and her new job title is a pretty big deal—the president calls her big—, demons are causing major havoc due to the dimensional rift that happened at the end of VENGEANCE OF TH...

    Avis tiré de mon blog : Ce tome en un mot : révélations.C'est pour moi un des meilleurs tomes de la série. Au niveau de l'histoire la terre doit maintenant faire face à l’assaut en règle des démons inconnus via les brèches qui ont été ouvertes. Sans compter les plantes bizarres et les contaminations qui détruisent tout sur leur passage on peut dire que la situation est difficile, surtout que le gouvernement à mis du temps à accept...

    I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.Legacy of the Demon: Demon Novels, Book Eight (Kara Gillian) is the best book yet, in this series. Kara and everyone are now dealing with the fallout of what happened with the last book. Now the world has demons, strange plants, and mutated animals loose in the world. She has to find a way to close the rifts safely and find Jill's daughter Ashava and Zack. The book starts of with a...

    SPOILERS AHEAD. I took my time with this one. It's a pretty long book and I didn't rush through it. A lot of things made me mad. Like how she didn't torture Rhyzkahl. Ugh and how she let him go near the end. The bastard, I hate him so much. I wasn't much for Mzatal in this book either considering how he was always away. In fact, the only guy i did like with Kara, believe it or not, was Palini. I know right? Their friendship is great now. I miss R...

    Malgré les quelques longueurs, on passe un très bon moment en compagnie de Kara et son équipe. J'avoue qu'il commence à y avoir trop de personnages et que je m'y perds vite.Vivement le dernier tome pour savoir comment toute cette histoire va se terminer.

    Oh, my, what a fantastic book! Such a great sequel, so much happens, and I can't believe there's only going to be one more book after this to finish the series (I think I read!) Yeah, really awesome book!

    I want to know what happens but this book read SO slow. It was hard for me to keep all the characters straight between books--it wasn't till I finished the ebook that I noticed it had a glossary.

    This book started out a little slow reading for me, but it sure did pick up and grab me well before I was half way through. There is action and more action, crisis after crisis and you really get to feel how much love and caring is shared between the team as they deal with it all. I had been scared that Kara and Mzatal were no longer going to be a pair, as their love and respect for each other was huge to me, and very important. I NEED them to ha...
