"scary, sexy and serious"
Three months have passed since psychologist Megan Chase
made the shocking discovery that the world is filled with
demons. Strangely though, Megan is the only person in the
world who doesn't have her own personal demon sitting on
her shoulder. However that doesn't mean she has nothing to
do with the world in which they live. Megan has become the
leader of a demon 'family' and is finding it hard to
understand what is expected from her.
So when Megan finds out that some of her demons are being
killed she is forced to address the situation. Lucky she
has her demon lover, Greyson Dante to help her but
sometimes his help isn't the kind she needs. While Megan is
busy trying to keep her demons safe and under control she
also finds herself dealing with some family issues and
finding out the truth about her past.
With personal problems and personal demons, Megan is really
having one hell of a time. So it is great that she isn't
alone. Her demon guards do everything they can and her
friends Tera and Brian are always around to support her.
Maybe now Megan can put the past behind her, have enough
strength to get through the present and manage to face her
In April last year I read 'Personal Demons', the first in
the series about Megan Chase. I absolutely loved it and
couldn't wait for the next book in this amazing new series.
So when the book arrived and I my review quote even made it
on to the cover I knew I was in for a treat!
However before I say how great this book was I have to moan
a little ;) I have to ask - Why such a long wait? I dived
straight into this and felt a little out of my depth at the
beginning. I realised that after all this time the
storyline from Personal Demons wasn't that fresh in my mind
as I thought it was. Lost and confused I kept reading and
was rewarded but I have to wonder why the publishers made
us wait for so long!
Apart from that, all I can say is - Bravo! Stacia Kane has
got a good feeling for Paranormal Urban Fantasy and has
managed to start her own unique series. Megan is a
realistic character who has lots of problems but no easy
way out given to her by the author. She deals with things
like we all would. She screams, she runs away and sometimes
she is sick from it all.
The story is fast and furious and the action is non-stop.
Just when you think Megan and her demons have a break from
it all something else pops up and has them on the move
again. This book doesn't have any dull moments in it and
once I got back into Megan's world I couldn't stay away.
If you haven't read the first book in the series, Personal
Demons, then I highly recommend you read it and Demon
Inside as close together as possible. If you have
already read Personal Demons and like me, you read it ages
ago, then try to catch up with Megan first before heading
on to Demon Inside.
All in all this is scary, sexy and serious. With not as
many laughs as last time this series looks like it will get
deeper and darker and I am all for it! Bring it on!
