I liked this book but not as much as the first one. I really missed getting the book told from Carolyns point of view. While this book had some of her perspective I felt like too many other characters were talking and taking up time. I didn't like all of the extra characters. It was almost too much for me. At one point I just had to skip a few pages. I do understand though why there are added POVs, the author is trying to expand the story to tell both the good and bad guys sides.

Another remarkable work of fantasy by Louise G. White!

I love everything about this book. I love Ms. White's vivid descriptions and beautiful way of telling a story. I love her characters just as much as I did in The Calling, the first installment of the Gateway Series. I love that I can see the action as it unfolds, that I can imagine the captivating scenery and, and I especially love the reference to Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal of Sherlock! ;)

'Chasing The Demon' is an amazing continuation in the Gateway Series. The adventures were even more thrilling than in 'The Calling' and Carolyn and the others does not disappoint (Sean and his Cumberbatch look always gets me;) ).

Thanks to Louise G. White for sending me an ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Chasing the Demon by Louise G White.
WOW!!!!!  What a fantastic book. I couldn't put it down, and was amazed and thrilled by the continued journey of Ethan and his group within the protectorate.
The team continue saving people from Otherworlders trafficking through the Gateways.  Their Destroyer, Carolyn is still missing and this is taking its toll on the team especially Note, as he struggles with Sadi and her condescending and demeaning ways, interrupting his consciousness and making life without

So first thing that pops into my head is there is going to be another book. So fortunately the series is not over and their is more to the story. Unfortunately authors can't just automatically come out with a book after you get done reading the previous one. And being that it usu

Oh why did it end, I just wanted to keep reading.

Louise is an amazing writer, she depicts these other worlds so well that I feel as if I am there, it’s as if they are real. Her vivid descriptions really are a delight. The way it jumped between the characters really pushed the pace of the story along, I couldn’t put it down. All the things I loved about the first book were amplified and grown on.

White's writing is deliciously addicting. This continuation didn't disappoint. I don't read many demon books but White makes it all so much fun, and with her skilled writing, I'm always on the edge of my seat. I thoroughly loved Note's character development in this one, and getting the alternate perspective of the story. I don't think it should have been done differently, seeing as our favorite characters are now split between two worlds.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I had to read this book IMMEDIATELY after completing the first of the series, The Calling. As with the first, Ms. White does such an exquisite job of describing vivid details throughout the entire story. You literally believe the places she creates are real. Never have I read an author who pulls the reader into her/his storyline the way Ms. White pulls in her readers. I will not divulge details, just trust me when I

Ms. Louise White did it again! She continues to fascinate us with her second book, "Chasing the Demons”. You’ll be turning page after page, not able to put down this nail-biting suspense novel, as the plot will take you to amazing, memorable places and dimensions. Chasing the Demons may become one of your favorite reads this summer – it’s certainly on my favorite books list! Lets hope that there is more to come from this very talented writer. Again, congratulations, Ms Louise White!

I got this book from the Author in exchange for a review. This is the second book in the series and boy did it deliver. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time and I stayed up way past my bedtime to read. I loved the characters and the plot line and I can't wait to find out what will happen next! I would however recommend that you read "The Calling" first in order to enjoy this book so much more. Another great installment by Louise G. White, don't miss it.

Wow, what a continuation. I loved entering the world again with Carolyn, Note and their team. There is so much more action and twists. It will keep you guessing as to what will happen next. I hate giving away spoilers, so I am going to leave the review there.

Well worth the read for any paranormal fan.

Whoa. I will be the first person to admit that my immediate response upon picking up a book to multiple perspectives after falling in love with one in the first book is “go away”. And I will also admit that this book completely changed my mind: I ended up loving seeing the events unfold through different eyes and how it affected them.

Heart Pounding Thrill Ride!

This book was an astounding read that I was not able to put down. From start to finish Ms. White captivated and enthralled my senses. Vivid descriptions and strong characters pave the road for an action packed tale that had me reading late into the night to find out what happened next. While I haven’t read The Calling, the first book in this series, there was enough backstory woven in to catch me up within the first few chapters.

There’s a lot to like here. This is a richly thought out, multifaceted world. The various forms of magical abilities on display, the complex relationship dynamics between the characters, the in-depth world building, all point to a powerhouse imagination driving the writing. On a copy-editing level, a lot of the phrasing as well is quite beautiful.

I enjoyed this one even more than the first book in the series owing to the fact that there’s that much more story to go around, and I enjoyed the lat

I enjoyed this title as much as the first. There was the return of familiar characters and the introduction of new ones. As expected from any series, it takes the ideas and concepts introduced in the first book and expands on them to create a better understanding of the world, missions and characters

It's hard to provide plot details, without giving away the ending of the first book, which I still must say is a highly recommended read. But with no spoilers in sight I will say that the author buil

I love getting hooked on a good series and I am thoroughly hooked on this one!

While I much enjoyed book #1, THE CALLING, overall, I think I like this book (#2) more. In book #1, I liked all the characters - but now White has got me caring about what happens to them, and some of their current situations are anxiety-inducing, indeed! Also, I'm gradually absorbing the complexities of this world, and I love the variation among the different types of demons and their native lands.

This is the second exciting instalment in Carolyn's story. It gripped me from onset, throughout - a sure sign of a great read. I actually brought this after reviewing The Calling (book one in The Gateway Series)

Louise G. White has really hit her stride in book two in terms of flow. There are so many little pieces to this book, but she keeps the different plot strains in a tight grip. Chasing the Demon is a professional read.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal). Another great book from Louise! I couldn't put it down. I was once again completely fascinated by the different worlds, I could almost picture them from her descriptions. I also enjoyed the way she switches back and forth to different characters. It seemed to make it even more fast paced. So many great characters to love, Carolyn, Note, Mario, and High Mage Sean were probably my faves. I highly recommend this to fantas ...more

Another enjoyable read, although I found myself being very frustrated in parts at how long certain events took to play out, I see it was all for a reason, and the personalities and interplay between the characters had time to mature and get interesting. We didn't see as much of Carolyn as I would have liked but I very much enjoyed seeing more of Sean, he is one interesting character. I look forward to seeing where this will all lead and will most certainly get the next book.

Wow, while I found the other book to be lacking in many ways this book was the oposite. I had no trouble with this book and itseemed very well written. The storyline moved along fluently and smoothly. All in all, not entirely a five star, a few flaws lowered it, but I can confidently say it is at LEAST a 4.9 I would recomend tis book to people who enjoy paranormal action books

This book started a year after the first book. I enjoyed the first book but not so much this one. The reason for this was there were too many POVs who had their own story to tell, it was confusing. I prefer to follow the main characters storyline however in this 2nd book the writer followed all the characters. If you like to read what's going on with all the characters then this is for you. The storyline is actually good and characters well developed. The heroine was reduced to a sickly dams

I've often wondered why so many new series start off with a stellar first book but then turn into a dismal read by the second book. I am slowly coming the conclusion that the authors want to expand the number of books being published in the series for the ultimate financial success. Often times the second book is laden with a lot of filler (non essential musings) that serve no real purpose other than prolong the read. However, what the authors fail to realize is the each book of a successful ser ...more

Fantastic Urban Fantasy / Sci-fi Saga

Book 2 takes up where book 1 left off. I recommend reading them in order to get the most enjoyment out of this urban fantasy sci-fi saga. Carolyn is the Destroyer, a young woman, now nearly 18 years old, who lost her mother and brother to demons. She has supernatural abilities that help her to fight demons and other worlders who kidnap humans. She has teamed with a group who have similar goals. Treachery abounds on Earth by the Agency who abuses humans with s

The second book in the series had proven to be as exciting as the first. Carolyn has been captured and changed, while the others search for her the reader is taken on a great adventure that is told from Carolyn's point of view as well as people from the first book, including Note who has a special bond with Carolyn. Readers who haven't read the first book will still be able to catch up with the story and know what is happening. I love the way the author tells the story and keeps the reader on th ...more

The second book in the Gateway series answered so many of the unanswered questions for the first book The Calling, while raising so many more. The author Louise G White keeps her readers on the edge of their seats form beginning to end.
