The Demon Conspiracy (Demon Conspiracy #1) by R.L. Gemmill is a book I won! Yippee me!! I won a good one with this book! It is a hoot! It is for teens/young adults but adults will like it too. I know I did. A family is going spelunking and there is an earthquake. But in the cave is a demon meeting with a demon salesman. It is funny how the demons are named. Of course there is a little suspense but not a lot. Some of the family doesn't escape and trapped with the demons. When the family does com ...more

*I received a copy of this book to be honestly reviewed*

This was captivating! These poor kids live through tragedy after tragedy, discovering new things about themselves along the way. The writing was smooth for the most part, but the characters were wonderful. The relationships between the sibling felt genuine, and I really enjoyed it. The monsters were properly terrifying, and I stayed engaged for the entire journey. A really great start! If you like demons and paranormal stories, you'll proba

This book sets up the series as a trip to a nearby cavern exposes the Bishop children to the demons living in the dark. The character development is good, and I especially like the biker grandmother. The many kinds of demons involved was imaginative and interesting. The writing was clear and moved chronologically through the action. As personalities changed for characters after being taken by the demons, it was impossible to determine whether the person had been transformed, or was possessed. My ...more

Jon Bishop (10, son/brother) woke up & he was in pain.
Kelly Bishop (6, daughter/sister) said they had been in a serious car wreck.
Travis Bishop (3, son/brother) was pulled to safety.
Mr. Bishop (husband/father) had a gash in his head & was not moving.
Mrs. Bishop (wife/mother) had died at the scene also.

BOOM! The van ignited n fire.
Fast forward, Chantilly, VA. Franklin MS. Kelly (narrator, telepathic) was OK with the foster parents: Angie McCormick (40, wife, athletic, stay-at-home mom

I do not know why there was a notice at the start of the book about this book being scary, it was more funny than scary and I do not think it should be classed as young adult fantasy at all as it is very childish particularly as the three protagonists are very young kids especially Kelly and Travis! The book reminded me a lot of the books by Brandon Mull the Fablehaven series! I will probably read the second book sometime soon but I do think that these books are too childish for my liking, howev ...more

recieved free for review:
I quickly got drawn into the story. it is meant. I think. for a younger reader than me. but I loved it!
I was upset when Jon and Chris did a personality change.
and that Donivee is a brat!
I had to recommend to my library that they purchase the set so I can read what happens in books 2 and 3.
so far the Los Angeles Public library has purchased each book I've recommended. Hope my trend continues as i really want to read them!🤩

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
I read the book from cover to cover and formulated my own opinions.

This book starts off with a car crash,
moves onto a cave rescue,
and continues with enough twists and turns
to keep the three main characters running until the last page.

I can't wait to get started on book 2 - The Doomsday Shroud

I can honestly say that it was awesome. While geared towards ya, adults can also easily get into the story. Demon Conspiracy is action-packed with an excellent storyline. You are seriously missing a great read if you pass on this one.

Looking forward to the next book!

A family goes caving and discovers that the cave is infested by demons. The main story is told by Kelly Bishop, an eighth grader in the family, who happens to be telepathic.

The strange part begins when all of the people that come out of the cave after going in to rescue the ones that didn't get out after an earthquake, all say the same thing. "But I have much work to do. I work hard and fast.” The demon names are funny and interesting enough by themselves. Lipsludge, Klawfinger, Grund, Seven-eye
