Okay, so everyone wants the fist-sized, soul-sucking rock that has bonded with Raine Benares. People who are supposed to be on her side are collaborating with people (er, goblins) who would see her killed to take her power. Take the political machinations, add demons, and then bond Raine emotionally and magically to the people she cares most about. So not only does she have to worry about staying alive and protecting the world, she has to worry that those she loves will be used against her. This was always a problem with young Piaras, but now her bond to Tam and Mychael can doom them too. However, Raine learns that beyond courage and skill, trust is what will pull them through. This trust is in good and loyal people who risk breaking the law, but also Raine's trust in young Piaras -- though inexperienced and subject to corruption, she has to let him make his own choices and pick his fights (give him room to rise to the occasion, if you will). The same applies to the men in her life. Finally, she has to trust herself and her instincts...always going back to those skills and smarts inherent in her as a seeker. "The Trouble with Demons" is a great book and fun read with characters making difficult and defining choices in the face of sheer mayhem.
