Demon summoner Kara Gillian bears the scars of Rhyzkahl's treachery, but she refuses to let them slow her down. She and the demonic lord Mzatal have not rested in their efforts to recover Idris--Mzatal's summoner protege who was kidnapped by enemy lords--but now their search has brought them back to Earth. With the help of FBI agents Ryan Kristoff and Zack Garner, they begin to track down summoners who are working with Rhyzkahl. However, Kara knows Ryan's true identity, and questions of loyalty threaten to tear apart this group of allies. When Kara intervenes to help a brilliant young computer expert and his bodyguard after an accidental shooting, she quickly learns that Rhyzkahl's machinations run deeper than she could have ever imagined. The search for Idris takes on a desperate edge as their enemies increase in number, and Kara realizes that an old homicide case may hold the key to their success--or their doom. With the very fabric of the universe at stake, Kara must rely on her skills, wit, and luck to save her friends and her world, yet ancient vows will have to be broken if she is to have any hope. But the price of breaking those vows may be her own blood. "Fury of the Demon" is the exciting sixth installment of the "Kara Gillian" series.show more

Review quote

"Rowland completely upends the Kara Gillan series in this installment. Everything we thought we knew about the inhabitants of Rowland's universe is called into question, with devastating results. Rising star Rowland kicks it into a whole new gear with this outstanding story that is heartbreaking, terrifying, and utterly thrilling!" --"RT Book Reviews" (top pick GOLD) "I was awestruck at the twists and turns and the, 'Oh "man", why didn't I see that before!' ... This series is top-notch in the genre. Gritty and dark, this is really good reading!" --"Felicia Day" "A nifty combination of police procedural and urban fantasy." --"Charlaine Harris" "A killer mid-series offering. It's hard to believe that any book could create as much anticipation as the climactic end of "Sins of the Demon", but "Touch of the Demon" opens up a whole new world, mythology, and love life for Kara, leaving me dying for book six." --"All Things Urban Fantasy" ""Touch of the Demon" is hands down the darkest, grittiest installment yet, and it was absolutely fantastic." --"Sweet Tidbits" "I don't think there's a world quite like these books, nor do I think there's a character quite like Kara.... It's a truly excellent book, and my main problem now is that it's set such very high expectations for the whole year." --"Fangs for the Fantasy" "Diana Rowland knows what Urban Fantasy readers want, and she delivers every time! ... Ms. Rowland gets two thumbs up for a job well done. I absolutely cannot wait for more!" --"Night Owl Reviews"show more
