Even though these are three separate installments to the series, I am going to review them as a whole because they all start right where the first left off.

As some of you may know I was taken by surprise with this series when I first picked it up last year. Not only is this told entirely in the male point of view, Gage's (which is fantastic) is also a lot more rough because of it. Gage doens't hold anything back. He is who he is and you take it or you leave it.

I was so excited to learn that boo

Jocelynn Drake really ramps things up in this second installment in her three part serial finale of the Asylum Tales. Before you pick this one up, make sure you have read “Demon’s Fury” first, because we jump right back into the action on page one.

Here, we follow Gage as he returns to the Ivory Tower where he spent nine years of his life, training as a warlock. Inside, the danger jumps to a whole new level. It’s tied in with the dark power that protects Gage’s basement and Lilith. It’s very cool

Good book, but the storylines just get more bizarre.

Demon's Vow is the second of three parts. The first being Demon's Fury, of which you can find a review here!

So Demon's Fury had ended on a pretty poor note. Demon's Vow picks right up, by letting it consume about 75% of the book. (view spoiler)

This is a fantastic world to live in!! I still haven't read any of the first books from this series YET, except Demon's Fury, but I am going to read books one and two. You'll see Gage in a wonderful light, and then he'll break your heart because after the bomb his girlfriend dropped on him at the end of part one, he's now going to do anything he can to make sure it's not just safe for him, but for her. Even if that means putting his life in danger over and over again. It's nonstop action, amazin ...more
I read these three parts of the same book back-to-back, so I have no sense of where each one ends and the next begins. Gage got himself sucked back into working for the towers at the end of book 2, and this story starts off with Gideon dragging Gage along to investigate a ritual murder site. Meanwhile, Gage has also been brought into an investigation of a murdered tattooist by the mundane authorities. Both killers are gruesome, and unfortunately, the ritual magic murderer seems to be headed in t ...more

*My Thoughts*

Demon's Vow is part II of a III part finale to The Asylum Tale's. This story picks up right where Demon's Fury left off. Warlock/Tattoo Artist Gage Powell's world has been thrown into a tail spin with Trixie's shocking news and intentions and the fact that he's up to his

Loved it!

Gage is still investigating the murders with Serah, and the Death Magic thing with Gideon. But progress seems to be slow on both cases.
Meanwhile his personal life is in shambles and there doesn't seem much he can do about it.

I do hope Gage can solve everything in the last part of the final book cause I want a HEA!

A little bit of a disappointing end to an otherwise promising series. Tell me the series will continue and I'll retract that statement. I'm sorry, but the last 3 novellas (one full novel), seemed rushed and a touch unfinished. I love the action, romance and feeling that is so incredibly portrayed. But with that kind off book, ending it like this feels cheap.

two psychoes killing. Gage is working on both cases, plus trying to find a way to keep Trixie with him. His friends there to help, in what ever ways they can. But how can you track a killer, much less two, if magic isn't helping? one's blood or "aura" will attack you, while the other uses spells to cause attacks on those using magic.
damned if you do, damned if you don't.

This three book set of The Asylum Tales, 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 is a mystery/crime set in an urban fantasy setting, which of course means the rules of the world are quite different. Not exactly what I expected, but entertaining nonetheless.

It seemed like a lot happened and not a lot happened. I hate that Trixie feels like she has to make the choice she made, it's both right and wrong. I really like the relationship that Gage and Gideon are forging. They have the ability to radically change how things are done within the Towers.

For me, the best this short story had to offer was us learning about Gage's security spell in his basement. The rest was so-so. On to the final installment in the series.
