Chris and Tanya have been assigned as Coven Rovers, travelling the country and trouble shooting the supernatural community. It's a job that's part cop and part auditor, one that should be long periods of boredom mixed with small parts of action. But this is Chris and Tanya, so a sudden assignment to check on a rogue vampire leads to a run in with a hostile Master vampire, ...more

This was another decent instalment in the Demon Accords series. The series is a fast paced and fun pulp UF. The world-building is a bit simplistic and the plot and story are full of tropes and flaws but none of them really hurt the book all that much as the characters are a likeable bunch and the story itself is engaging and fun. It all has the feel of a fun action movie and managed to hold my attention from start to finish.

The strange thing about this one was the story had no overreaching stor

Re-read for the third time this year October 2019.

Re-Read May 2019. Original review below.

Unless the quality of the series drops in the later books, I am probably going to be rating this series as 5 stars from now on. It can be somewhat difficult to rate specific books in a series because usually by the 4th book they kind of blend together. It is hard to answer the question " Did I like the book this much because this story was written so well or because I love the character and

The latest, but hopefully not this last in this very enjoyable urban fantasy series. In this one we got a good look at Vampire politics - not Chris's strong point and he knows it - I read these books very quickly.

Its been a while since I've come across a series that had me zoom through it like this simply because I really enjoyed both the character I was reading about and the books had a reasonably consistent pacing. This is one series I'm happy to pick up the next book when it becomes availabl

Another stormer. With the hero having his own kryptonite the bad guys at least have a chance. Still a great novel and thankfully still staying away from the Anita Blake trope of every chapter having gratuitous sex scenes. a good solid story. I'm not starting the next one and telly hope this series sticks with its current theme of a monogamous hero who stands up for those who need it. Still no spoilers but I'm going we will see the 'grim' side of things develop a little and learn more of various ...more
I really loved this one it was just as great as the last one. A really epic action packed hit that had you hooked in less than 1 page. I am not going to write any more long reviews atm. I'll write a review for the whole series when I am done with it instead. But I have to say I really love how this series hooks me in every book. ...more

This felt like a collection of short stories rather than a coherent single plot, and it did not have a natural ending point.
A fun read, enjoyed the heck out of the book. Altough the whole Grimm situation is turning quite tiresome by now, I like the direction the author is giving this series.

What the hell was that ending?!?!
The addictive nature of this series is still very strong, but I'm not sure it will stand up to rereading.
There is a lot to like in this book. It was starting to iron out the major screw up of book 2, balance was being restored. Once again my favorite parts are where Chris helps people / solves problems by means other than physically beating someone to death with his bare hands. I liked the campground section, that's a prime example of what I'm talking about. T

Please see my other edition for my original review for more information. This is probably the 7th time through the series. I keep coming back to it whenever I get into a rut in my reading and just want something I know I will like.

Love the new take on the supernatural from global ignorance of the supernatural to mostly expeptance. I also enjoy the different narratives.

After being a little lukewarm on the last two books in the series, "Demon Driven" and "Brutal Asset", Duel Nature has renewed my enthusiasm for the Demon Accords series.

It's structure felt a little strange since it's really three fairly self-contained story arcs in one book, but I thought two of the three were pretty great and help to move the series into new and interesting territory.

The first story was focused on Gordon's & Tanya operating as Rover agents(vampire trouble shooters). Them as a

Currently, there are another eight book in John Conroe's "Demon Accords" series. Unfortunately, this book, "Duel Nature (The Demon Accords Book 4)", is bad enough that I won't be reading the rest of the series. I had issues with the three earlier books, but the writing was good enough that it overcame them. This book, though: no. First, the book has no real story. It consists of five short missions/activities which have absolutely nothing tying them together or carry-over from one to the next. I ...more
Best in the Series for me...

Dual Nature is the fourth installation of the Demon Accords series. There is something about this series that makes me want to keep hope alive. The concept is a good one, but instead of following the politics in the Vampire and Supernatural worlds, the author focuses on this US Government angle that just doesn't rub me the right way.

This particular book comes off a bit shuffled and irratic. It starts with Chris and Tatiyanna as Rogue hunters. This would have been a g

Another great Chosen One installment

I continue to enjoy journeying along with Chris Gordon on his trek of discovering what new powers he manifests as he continues to fight the powers of evil. Like the other books, every time Chris is confronted with a new threat, he develops a new or stronger power and kills them in 2.8 seconds. Despite knowing this will happen, it does not change the enjoyment of the story. This is the fourth book in the urban fantasy Demon Accord series. I love that Christian/

A bit annoying to read due to weird social dynamics that are unrealistic, general stupidity from the main characters, the main character is way over powered but he's a total dumbarse. I guess if he had a ounce of common sense he could have had the whole story and probably the whole series over in a few days.

It would seem the author wrote the first two books then decided to continue the series. Problem is he'd made the main character way waaaay too over powered. So to continue the series he has t

I tried to read the 4th book of the Demon Accords, but after the 5th iteration of Conroe having to remind us that every man can't help but stop whatever he is doing to look at Tanya I'd had enough. We got that she was really pretty in book one. In book two you made it ever more important. By book three I was getting sick of it and the fact that Chris couldn't seem to become one of those main characters who's only flaw is that he's just too much of a bad-ass and so he has to be restrained all the ...more

Still fresh, still interesting

I like that I don't know which way the book will go, even if at the beginning it looked like the series was going to be set in a certain way, the characters keep changing and adapting and moving in different and interesting directions.
We had a little of everything in the book, it would have felt like a book of short stories if it wasn't for the seamless way everything was linked together.  The part I liked the least was the part of Vampire politics, it was very clea

How do you change the minds of beings who’ve lived for over 5-700 years?

A conclave to choose the new vampire elder is wrought with intrigue and there will be final deaths, but for whom?

This book is definitely changed the focus to the vampire world and suddenly Chris is wondering how he thought he could fit in.

Chris’s powers continue to grow in leaps and bounds beyond anything ever seen, and quite a few do not believe him dangerous. Which could be the last mistake of their long vampire lives. God

I am in the process of rereading the series. This book is a key transition from following everyone else to starting to make their own plans and choose their own destinies.

We see the secret government forces, once again. They are still not very good at what they are doing.

Once all of the travelling ends, it is time for a convocation of elders to choose a replacement for the elder that was smashed into paste a while ago. This is where the book gets good, really good. Take a bunch of self-important

I am a Fan

I am a fan. I love binge reading this series and will continue back to back reading to the end. The fight scenes are the best and Grim, the alter fight persona of Chris is all business and it's great the way he just moves past Chris to take over and get the job done. There is a really descriptive and intense fight scene between Chris & Hosokawa, an ancient vampire warrior. I am not a "science guy" but the technical, electronic, and quantum physics explanations seem plausible. Again, I

Excellent Series

This is a perfect example of how great Kindle unlimited is. This is a series I would of never come across had it not been for my unlimited subscription! This has it all...paranormal chaos with humor and wit. Four books in to the series (and yes you do want to start with book one and read them in order) and it keeps getting better. An easy read with descriptive scenes and great character development, these books are really entertaining. I've was looking for a new series to capture
