An opened Hellgate leads to a demon infestation on the Isle of Mid, and while there’s never an ideal time to face down demon hordes, it’s hard to imagine a worse one. Already fighting the influence of the Saghred, Raine discovers she is also magically bonded to a dark mage and a white knight, two dangerous and powerful men on opposing sides—and Raine’s stuck in the middle.
But with demons pouring throught the Hellgate, Raine can’t afford to be distracted. Turns out the demons want the key to unlock the Saghred. As a seeker, Raine should be able to find it first. As the axis of light and dark powers, she’s a magical cataclysm waiting to happen…
I think this is my favorite book of the series, thus far. In The Trouble with Demons, what starts out as a shopping trip ends up becoming something.. a bit more menacing.
Shearin takes things to another level by introducing the Hell Gate and the demons that are a pre-cursor to it. And the Demon Queen.. well, I still gag a bit when I think of the description of her.
As always there’s tons of action, fun, witty humor and sexual tension throughout the book. Unfortunately we’re no closer to a resolution on the Raine/Mychael/Tam front – but I will tell you this.. I love the development with Piaras that takes place in The Trouble with Demons. I love the fact that an innocent is called to the front in order for even a seeker to find something. It made me cackle and gave me a little thrill even though I know how corny the twist was.
Now that I’ve finished my re-read of the first three I’m off to tackle the newest addition to the Raine series and I cannot wait!
