Blood of the Demon (Kara Gillian #2) by Diana Rowland
Blood of the Demon is Diana Rowland‘s second book, and the second book in her series about Kara Gillian, a demon summoner and cop in rural Louisiana. (I talked about the first book, Mark of the Demon, here.) This time around, Kara is again dealing with deaths with an arcane bent – this time with someone or something ripping people’s essence out and consuming it. Plus she’s trying to figure out what’s going on between her and a federal agent also involved in the arcane while dealing with a demon lord and trying to recover her aunt’s stolen essence.
Once again, Diana Rowland has written a fantastic novel. It’s the perfect blend of police procedural and urban fantasy. I love how nuanced the plot is, and how much series development there is. This series is my new favourite to offer up to people who want something fun and smart to read, with a supernatural bent.
