I was pretty disappointed with this book. We met Rule in She's No Fairie Princess where he seemed like a great hero. I liked Rule in this book as well but his character wasn't really fleshed out. All I know about him is that he was part of the Watch in the Demon world who protects the Upper world from fiends, who are bad demons. I have no idea what life is like in the Demon world, how their society works or what type of life Rule had there before we met him.

The heroine, Abby, is just plain TSTL...more

Abby Baker is a research assistant for a local TV station. When she's on a riot scene to help cover a story, she becomes possessed by a fiend Lou (a not so bad guy). Lou is on the run from Uzkiel (bad guy), a fiend who wants a special spell that will give him an advantage in his fight with the demons (good guys). Lou had been acting as an informer for the demon Rule (good guy), and now Rule is searching for him since he went missing. Rule finds Lou in Abby's body, and immediately takes Abby into...more

The Others have been outed and as predicted, the humans aren't taking the existence of witches, vampires, werewolves and were-anything very well. There are riots going on in New York City and Abby Baker is stuck in the middle. She's busy cowering behind a bunch of cars when a group of thugs start beating up a teenage Other. When the Other gets knocked into her, the demon snatched his opportunity and possessed her. Well, not a demon, a fiend. Rule is a demon and he has nothing in common with Lou,...more

ini buku Fantasi/Paranormal ke8 yang saya baca bulan ini saja! Padahal seumur-umur paling saya baca tipe buku ini hanya 1-2 buku setahun..

Mungkin ini disebabkan karena demam Cat and Bones nih. Hehehehe…

Cerita bermula dari Abby yang memiliki warna mata berbeda (coklat dan biru) dirasuki oleh Daimon bernama Louamides. Punya warna mata berbeda hanya berarti bahwa Abby adalah seorang psychic atau penyihir atau pintu masuk bagi roh2 yang sedang membutuhkan tubuh. Dan ternyata Abby termasuk kedalam t...more

Okay, this was definitely my favourite in the series so far. I loved Rule, who was strong and sexy and really awesomely annoyed at people who kept mixing him up with the fiends he was trying to hunt. As you would be, I suppose. The heroine I didn't like quite as much, but I did still understand where she was coming from even if she was a bit stupid at first. My biggest issue with the book was that the author fell back on the whole "instant attraction" thing, which almost always makes me groan an...more
Kaleigha
Well, I liked most of it. I liked Rule, the Demon Watchman hero. I liked the interaction between all of The Others that I have come to know in the previous two books in the series. I actually enjoyed the premise, and the fiend Lou was quite a hoot. And Noah was a definite bonus. What dropped this from four stars to three was the "heroine", Abby. For the first three quarters of the book, she is just flat out annoying. Self-righteous, whiny, demanding, snobby, weak and annoying. I was so hoping th...more

This book took one of the more interesting characters of She's No Faerie Princess and told his story. The Others have Unveiled the presence to the human world and humans are adjusting; some well and others not so much. This is the story of the demon Rule and a mild mannered human named Abigail who happens to be fiend-posessed.
Good story, good characters, and a nice way to pass a lazy day.
Amanda
This book is not soley based on vampires...but it has them in it. I LUV Lou. He has a great sense of humor. Then there is Rule...he is so kool. The author also has a way with words. It was SO funny at times. The ending sux though cause it seemed she was suddenly in a hurry to finish the book, so there was not a lot of info of what happened tween Abby and Rule. Twas still a great book.
Marielle ♥ dominus ♥
I really don't like it when the main characters are being chastised because I believe that main characters are the center of the story and they can't be so so wrong. So when Abby escaped and was blamed by Tess, I really didn't like it and for the first time I hated Tess. But I understand it already, everything is cleared and I know the essence of unperfection in a story. And some spice.
I didn't want Lou to die but I guess I don't have a choice because almost realistic and some people just die....more

The Others are out, protesters are out, and low and behold Rule has his story. I can say I honestly enjoyed reading it. I liked Rule before. There was always more to the demon than meets the eye, Lou the little possessing fiend was comical. Noah, the brother was definitely interesteing considering we all know he's going to get his story and its nice to be introduced to the characters. The storyline was even good with Tess and the witches and the new world ending plot. However Abby was irritating...more
Brie
Another absolutely fantastic addition to the already amazing Other series!!! ;) Rule sounded incredibly hot and sexy and droolworthy lol and I really liked how strong Abby was. I mean she did have her little stupid or weak moments, but she was always fighting to survive and keep her loved ones alive. I was sad that Lou died, I actually kinda liked the little perv lol but at least he died honorably :) The sex was super hot and delicious, I just wish there would have been more than just two scenes...more

Narrated by Kate Reading - Narration 5*s

The Demon You Know is the third entry into Christine Warren’s The Others Series. The first two were hits for me but this one? Well, there are some hilarious moments as well as a lot of fun scenes featuring the rest of the cast. But the heroine, Abby Baker, is the queen of TSTL.

Kate Reading’s narration saved this one for me. She’s so good with the multitude of voices – voices that stay true to the characters across the series. Her ability to catch each litt...more

The ending almost took this down to a 2 star read for me. I was disappointed in how many of the characters acted, but liked the rest of the book enough to deal.

What I enjoyed:
* Lou, the fiend. He was good comic relief.
* Abby's brother, Noah. In fact, I'm going to have to check to see if he has a starring role in any of the newer books.
* The other females at club and the friendships they developed with Abby.

What could have been better:
* The end. Abby was TSTL, although she did eventually make up...more

I don't really know how to feel about this series. There's nothing blatantly awful about it, but at the same time there isn't much to make it stand out from the numerous other paranormal romance novels I've read. The word average sums up this book perfectly--a mindless, predictable, but not unpleasant read.

In the continuity of the series, the "Others"--that is, vampires, werewolves, fae, and all manner of supernatural beings have made the choice to reveal themselves to the human populations, and...more

It took a while for Christine Warren's books to grow on me. I really enjoy Big Bad Wolf and Walk on the Wild Side. This third addition in the Other series involves a human named Abby who has one blue eye and one brown. Apparently this makes it easier for witchcraft and "fiends" to inhabit her body. After finding herself in the middle of riot and trying to escape unharmed Abby is saved from harm by two feline werewolves. They realize something isn't quite normal about her and with the assistance...more

To start off with, I started this series so I could read this book. I liked the title straight away, I was intrigued. It was funny and light but I liked the different story line that the 'others', the paranormal creatures of the world, are out of the closet. No more hiding because the humans know all about you. *points*

I was looking forward to Rule's book as we met him in She's No Fairie Princess, he was a Demon cop and pretty smexy. I liked Abby from the start, however she did have quite a few...more

My favorite, laugh out loud part of the book...

"Before her brother could guess her intentions, she grabbed him by the arm, swept his feet out from under him, and tossed him over her shoulder like feather pillow. He landed like a ton of bricks. "What the *uck?" Relishing the gesture, Abby brushed her hands together and grinned smugly down at him. "Like I said, I'm not completely defenseless." Thunderclouds rolled in across Noah's expression. Cursing a blue streak, he flipped himself to his feet a...more

Abby is a good Catholic girl, she blends into the background and likes it there. Until one night she is caught in the middle of an Others protest, she finds herself possessed by a rogue demon. In comes Rule, a sort of Demon Guardian. Romance blossoms and mayhem ensues.

There are some things I didn't like about this story. Mainly Abby, she is headstrong, far too stubborn, and frankly rolls her eyes far too much. In short I found her pretty damn annoying for the most part. I don't know what it is...more

The third book in the series was entertaining from the start. It caught your interest right away and kept you interested. Warrens previous book She's No Faerie Princess was slow to start but this one wasn't. I enjoy Warren's sense of humour. This book starts off after the Others(were, vamp, demon, etc...) have come out to the general public and society is attempting to process the new reality. Unfortunately they aren't doing so well at adjusting. Riots abound in cities and the an innocent gets b...more

This takes place a few weeks after the Unveiling. Humans are rioting all over the world protesting against the "Others".

Abby, a news researcher, was corralled into assisting an over-eager colleague in covering the Manhattan riots. She not only got stranded in the middle of it all but was inadvertently possessed by a minor fiend.

Rule, a Demon enforcer, came to Manhattan in search of his missing informant who has information regarding an archfiend intending on taking over the known Universe. When...more

loved this one as well. Enjoyed seeing a demon get some love too. Love how all the supporting characters see the love before the main characters. Like DUH! as they say LOL. GREAT story.

I know that it looks like I may have struggled with this book but that is not the case. I have been working on Christmas presents so I have been reading much. I love this world and its many inhabitants. If there is a myth then there seems to be a representative in Ms. Warren's world. I also loved that Demon's are not all bad and can in some instants be good. I have a real weak spot for a growly alpha male and Rule is all that and more. The sex is hot, hot and the suspense is just enough to keep...more

As an urban fantasy, it's good stuff. Evil fiends from Below plot to cast the solus spell and render the world in perpetual darkness, causing Hell on Earth. The Others plot to save the day. All the usuals are there - werewolves, witches, demons - plus the unusuals - werejaguars, satyrs, imps.

As a paranormal romance, the heroine Abby is an annoying, argumentative brat with few redeeming qualities and the demon Rule is, well, one of those sterling, alpha male types that are too good to be true.

I...more

Ok--I hated, and I mean thoroughly detested, the voice that the Narrator used for Rule. He sounded like an uptight English butler. Not what the author wants you thinking about during sex scenes--cuz just EWWWWWWWH! I enjoyed the action scenes and I loved Lou, but Abby was dull and insecure. I am not good with insecure people-they tend to annoy me. And she was just, "I'm too boring"/"I'm not good enough"/"Why does he like me?"...RIGHT AFTER THEY HAD MIND-BLOWING SEX! She was an idiot. The brother...more

The only thing I liked in this book 11 is the hot & steamy scenes. The storyline was boring to me. Abby is the most annoying female I ever read in this series. I enjoyed Rule better in book 10 than this one. I hope book 12 is better.
Silver James
The Demon You Know is a return to the type of story that first drew me to Christine Warren. Rule, the demon Watchman, returns from his introduction in a previous book to find his mate in a "plain-Jane" human without a touch of magic but with a heart filled with faith. The constant emphasis on Abby's looks got old but as it was integral to the story, I could overlook the numerous references. This one is definitely worth a read.

Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...
