I made it 140 pages before I finally gave up. The repetition of the back story (and previous 2 books, I imagine) never ends. The writing is terrible, the character development is rushed and involves A LOT of inner monologues, and the plot is conveniently moved forward through deus ex machina style tactics. Life is too short to finish bad books.

I admit to being addicted to this series. The characters are great and the writing is wonderful! This is a great series for the paranormal lover!As a matter of fact, fans of UF would love this series as well with this new book in The Demonslayers series.

While the romance is not as heated as I like it between the two main characters, their is a special connection that the two have that keeps the reader interested. I loved the angst and personalities of both and the story was great! At times, the

Phenomenally simple story dragged out over 400 pages; characters so simplistic they seem like children. Started intriguingly, but became very re

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A novel of adversity overcome, and of happiness found. Oh and there are some demons, and witches and magic swords in there too.

Opening Sentence: The steady drip, drip, drip and the soft hum of overtaxed air purifiers were the only sounds Selyn heard as she cautiously pushed herself away from the cavern wall and moved silently through the darkness to the sleeping quarters.

I don’t know it there is any other books for this series but it looks like this is the end for now. Selyn is a warrior born into slavery due to demon possession of the people in charge of the Lemurians. Dawson is a vet living in Sedona that is put in charge of Selyn after she is found half dead from a beating. These two along with others will be fighting demons it seems forever but things get complicated as usual and sooner or later love will overcome everything.

Starfire - Kate Douglas
* I received this ARC/book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Starfire is the third full length novel in the Demonslayer series and it picks up where Crystal Dreams left off. Selyn is found near death in the caverns after she is brutally beaten by one of the guards. Roland, carrier of crystal gets her help in the form of a local vet in the Earth Dimension, Dawson Buck.

Dawson has been helping Alton, Ginny, Dax & Eddy in their fight against demons. He work

The third in the Demonslayers series, Starfire gave us a great story of love, redemption and revenge.

Selyn is one of the Forgotten Ones, a whole class of female warriors who were the reason why the Lemurians were so successful in wars past. Now, they are tossed aside and left to become miners... Essentially forgotten by the Lemurians who consider themselves "upper class". However, the Forgotten Ones haven't forgotten, nor have they forgiven.

Dawson is a really cool man who brings his compassion a

StarFire (DemonSlayers #3)by Kate Douglas. Paranormal Romance. 4/5 star because it just didn't feel like that deep of a book compared to the last books.

Selyn and Dawson Buck are the main characters in this book along with a few chapters in other characters point of views. To me it seemed like there was a lot more switching characters then the other books.
The story was mainly about all the characterless trying to find the Demon King, freeing the Lemurian pe
seemed a tad more UF than PNR. I get that each book has a HEA for a couple but the Sci Fi Adventure dominated the book. It was around 100 pages before the first chaste kiss. No lusting on her part. I guess the lack of ROMANCE dominating the book made it seem more UF with PNR back up.

I didn't read book 1 or 2. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had. I found the world and people very confusing, spending much of my time trying to figure out what was going on and put puzzle pieces together ra

The evil that has infiltrated the Lemurian race is as powerful as ever in this fourth installment of The Demon Slayer series, and the heroes just keep getting better and better. Daws’ character is an average guy on the outside, but with a heart the size of a mountain, he is more of a hero than any woman could hope for. He can be sweet and silly, but those sexy eyes say it all, and Selyn knows how good she has got it. I would very much recommend reading about all of these fabulous couples in the ...more

First off i have to say that i have not read the rest of the series, it is very unlike me to jump the gun but, I am so glad i did! Though there were a few things that pulled me up and made me wish i knew more, it was a fantastic read. I felt as though i was right there along side Dawson and Selyn in there epic adventure to save not only her world but Earth and Atlantis. I will be buying the first books of the series for sure. :)

This book is definitely a lot more action-packed than Hellfire. Some may quibble about the romance elements but I believe it makes sense in the overall scheme of things.

A couple of characters cropped up in this book that weren't mentioned at all in the previous books and it looks like their story was told in the anthology Nocturnal that I now need to hunt up and read!

This was much better that I thought. It did take me longer to get into it but that was more to do with trying to remember what happened in the last 2 books. But still good non the less. But this series you do have to start from book one and then go through, you can not just pick one up and for it to be good. These book I find they build on eachother.
