Demons Are Forever (Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom #3)
It isn't easy when your daughter's figured out that her mom's a demon hunter-and wants to grow up to be just like her. Or when you suspect your dead husband used the forces of darkness to filch the body of another human. And your living husband isn't the man...more

I felt there was way too much rehashing of the story to date at the beginning of the book. This went on for a good long while and I found it repetitious, boring and unnecessary. After that, the story picked up quite a bit till I got to the part of the annoying, whiny teenager. I know teenagers often have that I-know-...more
The book isn't hard to catchup on as we get enough background as to what's going on and what's already happened before we got here that picking up in book 3 wasn't a problem. This is I think a good idea and the writer handles it pretty well. There's humor and there's action and she's set up a framework for things to operate "inside" that lets the...more
The first half of the book felt like it'd finally found it's own identity outside of simply being a Buffy knock-off. I was enjoying the fact that Timmy had kind of been pushed to the background in favor of Allie. But then some bad things happen and fellow missing hunter, Nadia (aka Faith), shows up out of nowhere (like Faith) and then turns out to be bad (just like F...more
The story begins right where the previous one ended. Kate and her daughter Allie are sitting on a curb waiting on Stuart to pick them up. Allie is ready to hear her mother's secret...more
With the demons yet again coming to San Diablo, Kate is faced a more evolved and ongoing threat as well as the fallout from her daughter finally learning the truth about Kate and her secret double life. Of course, once she understands she has a lot of questions – and Kate isn’t sure how many she can a...more
The reason I didn't enjoy the novel has nothing to do with it being midway through a series. The problem stems from: concept, setting and the execution of the mystery.
I don't know why Kenner felt compelled to add in all the back story about Kate Connor's training and life as a demon hunter for the Va...more
I actually picked this up thinking it was going to be a snarky, sarcastic parody of the genre (the tag line on the front says, "Minions of the occult in a Demon-Free School Zone? Time to raise Hell..."--I didn't think I was meant to take it seriously). When I realized it wasn't what I thought, I figured I'd give it a chance to win me over to t...more
This is the 3rd in the series and while it continues to have the same humor as the other two, I found it lacking in depth. The author usually goes into more detail and this one seems written very quickly with a lot less attention to the underlying story or little details (ie. the pla...more
Only a third more to go, a day after starting, and though it is a guilty pleasure, it dawns on me, that remo...more
This book was a fun adventure. The mother-daughter relationship was sweet, albeit way too good to be true. A teenager who is respectful and obedient? *Gasp!* Mom was a tough broad!
My only complaint was that Stuart (the step-father) w...more
