LEGACY OF THE DEMON is the eighth installment in the Kara Gillian series. I have to admit, I haven’t read much of Diana Rowland’s work but I wanted to give this series a shot just because I’ve read a lot of great things about it. For one, the covers are badass but I think her writing is what carries this series.
Kara Gillian is my kind of heroine. She’s kickass and cool but at the same time, she has her own set of vulnerabilities that makes her more relatable. I think if you’re a fan of Jaye Wells, Kim Harrison or Ilona Andrews’ heroines, then you’re probably going to like Kara as well. She has a ton of personality without being over the top.
But let’s go back to the writing because I think that’s what really sets the tone of this book. These books are very fast-paced so I think if this is your first book in the series it might be a bit overwhelming. I didn’t have a problem with it. I like the action and the suspense that Rowland writes. She doesn’t let her characters stand around too long. There’s always something going on, even if it’s not a big fight or action scene.
I’ll definitely be checking out the other books in the series now and I’m glad to have another Urban Fantasy series to jump into.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
