Review--Demon Inside


It's been three months since psychologist Megan Chase made the stunning discovery that the world is filled with demons, and once more the situation is too hot to handle. Ironically, Megan--the only person in the world without a little personal demon sitting on her shoulder--has become the leader of a demon "family", but now some unknown arcane power is offing her demons in a particularly unpleasant fashion. And while her demon lover Greyson Dante is still driving her wild with desire, he's also acting strangely evasive. Then there's the truth about Megan's past--the truth she's never known. Caught between personal problems and personal demons, Megan is having one hell of a hard time. Will the help of her Cockeny guard demons and her witch friend Tera be enough so that Megan can finally resolve the past, survive the present, and face the future?

Took me a little longer to finish this one what with the holiday and my work schedule. But Demon Inside was still a fun read.

The latest in Stacia Kane's Megan Chase series was pretty entertaining. I hadn't read Personal Demons since the summer so my memory was really sketchy on some of the details that were brought up about three months ago, but Kane smoothly moves into the details, making them seem not too important to remember in exact detail. She gives you the important information and you just have to take it that it is what it is.

Anyway, Megan has been very busy lately since she is head--might have had a funny vocab word for the real name--of her own group of demons. But something is happening to her demons and a few of the other ones from the different groups that are around the area. Megan doesn't know who is out to get her demons or the other ones as well. Is it all just demon business or is there something more sinister going on?

Megan goes through many more changes and life changing decisions throughout the book and it's amazing that she can still keep herself sane. I know I would be wanting to buckle under all the pressure she goes through, but she stays strong. With the help of her friends and demon boyfriend there to help her, she is able to conquer anything.

We get to see a little more in her and Tera's developing friendship and a look inside what Tera does for her day job. Brian comes back too, but not as much. Then again, my mind might be muddling up some details since I started this book on Thursday. So sad when it takes me this long to finish a book.

Greyson and Megan's relationship is very intense, and in a good way. You can see the love--corny I know! Looking past the heated "love" scenes, you can see that Greyson really cares for Megan and does everything in his power to protect her, it is really sweet and endearing.

Megan's family is another issue entirely, they are downright awful. It's amazing Megan has managed to be such an upbeat person before all this demon business started. Megan is drawn back to her hometown for specific reasons which will go unnamed for now, and her family just about tears her apart and Greyson is the one there to help her keep herself together.

Not to mention that Megan has an enemy lurking about just about everywhere she goes. An enemy who will do anything to get what they want--improper grammar structure I know, but I don't want to reveal the identity or gender of the enemy. Megan is forced to relive more horrible moments in her life to try to put the pieces together to what is going on and what it will take to put a stop to the attacks on her demons.

Filled with romance and action and lots of demons, this is a book worth reading if you've read Personal Demons or are looking for something new and different to read. I've said it before in other posts about books that contain something other than the usual vampire or werewolf--although there are only a small handful of werewolf books out there that I've read and liked. Other were-creatures too, but I'm getting off topic. Demons can be fun and definitely sexy if Stacia Kane has anything to say about it.

Good news is that if you are thinking about starting this you won't have long to wait for the 3rd book, Demon Possessed, which comes out on February 23 2010!

Also be sure to check out her new series that comes out later this year giving the name title again the Chess Putnam series. Taken from Stacia Kane's website, here is what she has to say to sum it up: "a cross between Ghostbusters and Escape from New York, with an awesome punk rock soundtrack, black magic, greasers, drugs, human sacrifices, and a black 1969 Chevelle".

Look for Unholy Ghosts on May 25 2010!

My reviews will come slowly starting next week as I have to return to school and keep up with all that work on top of my pt job too. I will still be reading so occasionally pop on by to see what's new. I'll still post random bits of info as I come across it too. I hope to finish up Dracula the Un-Dead before Monday and thus a review will be up as well.
