Brutal Asset
The Demon Accords, Book 3
By: John Conroe
Narrated by: James Patrick Cronin
More action packed adventure, more excellent fighting, adventure, twists and turns, surprises, and supernatural kicking ass along with a touch of supernatural romance. No one stands in the way of Chis and Tonya! This series just gets better and better! They get more and more allies and more and more enemies! Ugh! Nothing they can't handle. New mysteries, new characters, and more fun.
The narrator still is kick a

I felt this third instalment of the Demon Accords series was not quite as much fun as the first two instalments. It was still an OK read. This series reads a lot like a fun, if mindless, action movie.

I like Christian as the lead. He has his flaws but is mostly a guy that is likeable and easy to root for. The same goes for the secondary characters. Chris's friends and those of his vamp girlfriend's are both interesting and likeable. The villains are usually pretty crappy but that is OK as half t

Re-read for the third time this year October 2019. I just needed my demon accords fix.

Re-read May 2019. Original review below.

I continue to really enjoy this series. The main reason is the main character. He is a very interesting character. He is both super competent and inept (mainly when dealing with women, but in a lot of social situations - childlike almost), he is insanely overpowered and yet also very fragile. Incredibly selfless/heroic but also cold/brutal at times. He

I really liked this book, it added a little more intrigue to the storyline, but more unanswered questions that have in no way been explained yet. The storyline is getting more and more complex with all the new ability's and enemies. I can't wait to read the next book. Will chris be able to control and keep in check the grim. ...more

Overall Feedback: So here is the third installment of The Demon Accords and let me tell you... The story has only gotten better. John is a phenomenal author and I can not wait for the next in the series. He has taken a genre that I felt was overdone and gave it some helpful breathes of fresh air. His writing is both captivating and intriguing. You will get lost in this series as quickly as I have.

Point of View: Again Mr. Conroe ( I say John as I like first names, seems friendlier) gives his stor
Wow just wow so freaking good I loved every delicious word and action. Prepare to be awed by the amazing power couple that is Chris & Tanya. But don't forget the other awesome characters that will blow your mind. First and foremost is my personal favorite let's hear it for Okwari!!!!! Man you do not mess with Okwari, he is pure epicness. If you think of him as Chris pet, well then you are stupid and will get killed, for dismissing him as non important. I love the huge Bear God. I think John Conr ...more

Okwari rules

Overpowered characters still face challenges, and that's pretty clear in this book.  Things are getting better, but are still quite dangerous for Chris and the gang, and their enemies are looking for ways to hurt them, and they even succeed, kind of.  So we see our heroes are not invulnerable, they still have their weak points and can be hurt.  
I like how both Chris and Tanya have grown in the last two books they are more mature and I love how their relationship has become so much st

All these book have been pretty much 3 1/2 stars for me. That is between 3, meh to good, and 4, pretty good-really good. I decided to bump this one up as I hadn't with the previous ones.

Chris as a character is comic book, except he keeps getting more. If he is attacked, don't expect him to have any damage, to lose, or to falter. If his gf, Tanya, the Queen of the vampires is threatened, expect Chris to run and save the day with just the right thing. There is no anxiety for the reader of Chris no

Chris and Tanya continuing to defeat the bad guys

This is the third book in the urban fantasy Demon Accord series. I love that Christian/Chris’ character, despite his unique overwhelming powers, is still sweet, a bit naive, and modest which makes him a likeable hero. Chris is a self-proclaimed demon fighter. Due to the unique abilities he was born with, he all can see demons, remove them from their host or location, and banish them back to hell. He also has been infected with the virus that cause

I am rereading the series and enjoying it again.

Not quite as fast moving as the first two books, but it has an intense emotional moment or two.

The main characters are developing nicely. We are seeing more of the world and groups that form it.

The author is doing a great job of expanding the reader's view of his fantasy world.

I will say that there are some who would say that this is just a violence solves all pulp urban fantasy book without depth. They would be correct, but not completely correct.

It's possible that John Conroe's "Brutal Asset (The Demon Accords Book 3)" is just a tad better than the previous two books in the series (call it 3-3/4 stars instead of 3-1/2). It feels like he might have slightly toned down the gland-fest a bit and reduced the number of fights the protagonist breezes through from dozens to a handful or so. All my previous comments about the earlier books apply. So, if you've read those books and are looking at this one, you know exactly what to expect. Again, ...more

The ONLY reason that I will put the next on my furmture list is because I am interested in the God/Angel aspect. As for the rest of the book I'm just annoyed. This book was like a morning without coffee☕... not going anywhere good.

All the women want him... like a purple-eyed Christian Gray. All the men are intimidated by him. He can kill anything in less than 10 seconds yet you'll get 6 minutes worth of descriptions.

2 Stars⭐⭐- Decent. Has Potential. Possibly a good idea for a story but somethi

This is perhaps the darkest of this series since it deals with Chris' struggles to deal with his new inner berserker. For someone who has been as much a white knight as a demon slayer, this is a very deep and profoundly introspective self-examination of his heart, his spirit, his purpose. Fortunately, Chris has a support network of people who believe in him and his ability to rule himself. I think that while this may be for me the most disturbing book in this series, it also seems to be the one ...more

Probably a 3.5 star book I admire the authors research ability in imagination but the thing that really gets me is the clingy nature of Tonya and Chris. I mean I know they are young but their insecurity and immaturity just makes you crazy. I will say that the author has some really good ideas and interesting interpretations of history and various world religions. I wish I could get into this series a lot more than I am. I may or may not keep on reading and my guess is much will depend on my mood ...more

Mysticism enters p story as Chris looks to learn more about Okwari

A lot more backstory is revealer and deepened with Christian’s past being discussed more as he delves into his own psyche. He learns more of his Angel friend, his purpose and why he is beyond human now.
Tanya is attacked and wounded gravely. We also learn more of the Outsiders. Civil war within the Coven?

Less nutrition than popcorn, about the weight of cotton candy.

And yet they are hitting the spot. Book 2 does indeed have a power up making our protagonist even more of a Billy Badass.

Favorite quote:

“So the government now had an individual running loose, with the abilities of a vampire (a fairly old one) plus this freaky purple aura power, and a companion who was essentially a minor god, one that could penetrate any security and destroy any target at will!  I was screwed! “

Quick fun read

Certainly not original, but it borrows from all of our favorites. I can knock out one of these books in a single day, even though I’m not a fast reader. Your pulse pounds from time to time and you find yourself daydreaming about the world thinking through the eyes of Chris.

Once again a masterpiece of fun fast action - I have the whole collection of the Demon Accords and love every minute of it. Every time a new book is released or if I am feeling bored I reread the books.
If you enjoy urban fantasy get into the Demon Accords its great - My son who is not a "reader" has started to read the series.

Love 💘

This story is so full of unexpected twists and turns and adventure. The characters are rich and different. I like them and want to find out about them. I love that there are many heroes not just the main ones. I really like that the romance is rich as well,but not at all explicit. Great story and great fun.

From the high of book one and after the low of book two, this series is finding it's own level. I've noticed that in addition to the Dresden Files, John Conroe is going further afield for his "inspirations". Still, despite my internal grumbles about this and that- This series is very hard to put down and is keeping up at night because I can't seem to stop reading it.

Really great series. I’m listening to it on audible and I really like the characters. Lots of good relationships and action scenes. There are quite a few characters but somehow it’s written that it’s not overwhelming and confusing. I’ve already bought the entire series after only reading the first one.

The plot thickens! A great addition to the series, the whole bear god angle seemed a bit forced in the beginning, Fenrir made no sense in that context but for the rest the book was excellent, very well written, and is starting to show an overall bigger plot.
