Book Review: Demon Divine (A Novel of the Demon Accords #14) by John Conroe

Demon Divine (A Novel of the Demon Accords #14)

Pages: 303
Something unholy is hunting the streets of Burlington, Vermont, stalking the campus of the local university. Chris Gordon and his contingent of demon hunters is drawn to the northern Vermont city by a brutal murder of hellish proportions, ready to banish it from Earth.

But this Hellion is direct from the Abyss, incarnate and fully possessed of all the powers of high Hell royalty – female royalty at that. It’s been said that the female of the species is deadlier than the male, and this one might be the deadliest of all.

How do you flush out such dangerous prey without recreating the chaos that befell Washington such a short time ago? The answer: bait. The bait: Declan O’Carroll, witch prodigy with powers so sweet it’s like candy for the Devil’s own. Can Chris and company catch this monster before any harm comes to their friend and colleague? Or will Hell have its way? Can they see all the angles or does this Abyss bitch have the edge?

An incarnate demoness is hunting in Burlington, Vermont, and Chris and his team head to the Arcane School and the local university to find and destroy this creature from the Abyss. Female demon royalty is considered the most dangerous of demons and their powers of deception rival the males of the species.

It appears that this deadly demoness is hunting Declan for unknown reasons and the team decides the best way to draw her out is to use Declan as bait. Stacia and Omega, who are both overprotective of Declan are keen on the idea but know it is the right way to go. Meanwhile, Tanya, Galia, and Lydia are summoned to Europe to represent Senka, who is facing a threat from the Coven. It is hard to know which character in this series is the most important or even favorite when all are well developed and likable. Conroe has been able to continue this series magnificently by continuing to create new avenues for readers to discover and love.

About the Author:
Conroe wrote his first readable novel, God Touched, right after finishing his daughter's copy of Twilight and muttering: "Vampires don't farging sparkle!"

With seven more books in the series and a stand alone novel (Black Frost), he doesn't seem to be slowing down. He cut his reading teeth on the likes of Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, JRR Tolkien, Robert Heinlein, Andre Norton, and H. Beam Piper.

Financial professional by day and author by night (actually by morning), he bangs out his stories with fingers that are usually sore from forge burns or getting beat up at the dojo.
