"One of the best new series I have come across lately"

Kara Gillian is a cop with some unusual gifts. Not only can she use the power of 'othersight' but she is also a summoner of demons. Demons can be helpful but Kara has managed to summon a demon lord and now he wants her to belong only to him.

Her day job keeps her busy and she has two cases open that don't look quite right. So with the help of a handsome FBI agent she starts trying to put the little evidence she has together. However the help of the sexy Lord Rhyzkahl will make things go faster so she turns to the demons for help. She knows that the deaths she is investigating are special and are connected. She knows because something ate their souls.

I loved the first installment in this series, Mark of the Demon, and have been waiting for this sequel ever since. When this arrived in the post I wanted to start it straight away but was also worried that I would be disappointed. After all the second book in a series is sometimes the make or break. But I started Blood of the Demon this morning and have been snapping it up all day. I was hooked from page one!

I have always been a fan of writers like Tess Gerritsen and Patricia Cornwell and the whole crime/thriller genre. However the Paranormal genre has always been my favourite and wins every time when I go to my bookshelf to pick my next read. Then this comes along. A perfect mixture of both! And written by someone who knows what they are talking about. Suspense, mystery and demons! What else could a paranormal fan ask for?

Well written with an amazing plot, this is a definite must read series for me. This is like a paranormal CSI and I am dying for more. One of the best new series I have come across lately and most likely the best demon themed. Diana Rowland has captured everything I want and the main character is someone I can relate to.

Make sure you try this because I don't think any fans of the Paranormal genre will regret it. This second book has sealed the deal for me and I looking forward to anything else this author has to throw at me. I am addicted!

A demon wants her body. A cop has captured her heart. But a killer waits in the night.

The serial killer known as the Symbol Man has been dealt with, the demonic lord Rhyzkahl is no longer invading her dreams, and Detective Kara Gillian is doing her best to get her life back to normal after being kind of dead for a while.

Unfortunately, there's little about Kara's life that is ever normal or simple. As a skilled summoner of demons, she's hoping to use her arcane abilities to retrieve her aunt's essence and restore it to her body. But when Kara discovers that FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff is somehow known to the demonkind--and not in a good way--old doubts surface and new problems emerge. Moreover, her investigations into the deaths of several seemingly unrelated victims reveal disturbing links to the arcane, with unsettling similarities to her own situation.

But matters get more complicated when she discovers other links between the victims, leading her into a morass of political corruption. And it doesn't help that Rhyzkahl has asked her to be his own summoner, a commitment that could have quite a few advantages and plenty of pitfalls. Politics--whether among humans or demons--is a dangerous game with very high stakes, and Kara is learning that lesson the hard way.
