Publisher Comments:

Kara Gillian is in some seriously deep trouble.

Shes used to summoning supernatural creatures from the demon realm to our world, but now the tables have been turned and shes the one whos been summoned. Kara is the prisoner of yet another demonic lord, but she quickly discovers that shes far more than a mere hostage. Yet waiting for rescue has never been her style, and Kara has no intention of being a pawn in someone elses game.

Theres intrigue to spare as she digs into the origin of the demonic lords and discovers the machinations of humans and demons alike. Kara is shocked to discover that she has her own history in the demon realm, and that the ties between her and the demonic lords Rhyzkahl and Szerain go back farther than she could have ever imagined. But treachery runs rampant among all the lords, and shes going to have to stay sharp in order to keep from being used to further their own agendas. The lords have a secret that dates back to earths ancient history, and it could have devastating repercussions for both worlds.

Yet more than anything else, Karas abilities as a homicide detective will be put to the test—because this time the murder she has to solve is her own.

Synopsis:

Kara Gillian is in seriously deep trouble. Shes used to summoning supernatural creatures from the demon realm to our world, but now shes the one whos been summoned. Kara is the prisoner of the demonic lord Mzatal, but quickly discovers that shes far more than a mere hostage. But waiting for rescue has never been her style, and Kara has no intention of being a pawn in someone elses game.

Yet intrigue and treachery are running rampant, and Kara is hard pressed to keep her wits about her. Her abilities as a homicide detective are put to the test as she seeks the truth about FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff; Rhyzkahl, the demon lord she is sworn to; and her own history in the demon realm. She's going to need all the strength and tenacity she's developed as a cop and a summoner, or the hell she endures may well last forever.

Touch of the Demon is the exciting fifth installment of the Kara Gillian series.

Synopsis:

Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive"...

Oleofox, January 19, 2013 (view all comments by Oleofox)
I had been dying to read this book as the most recent in the Kara Gillian series. I really loved this series because Kara was such a strong female character. But that seems to have disappeared a bit in this installment. Before Kara was a tough cop who did her own thing. But now she seems to have turned into a "wimpy girl" who follows along with everything her guy (Rhyzkahl) says. While she still talks a good tough talk, it falls a bit flat when you also take in her stupid decisions which seem to be happening more often. She used to be so aware and really questioned why people said and/or did things. I also really missed all the law enforcement aspects of her life. While the descriptions were beautiful, I wish she was never kidnapped into the demon realm. Overall I personally would give the story a 3/5 stars, but I had to toss in a 4th star for the lovely descriptions regarding the scenery in the demon realm. I'm not sure if I will read the next in this series. If I do, then it will only be when I can borrow the book from the library.
