It's been seven months since Chris Gordon met Tanya Demidova, and a lot has changed. He's stronger, faster, has the senses of a vampire and the appetite of a werewolf. But even as he settles into his new position with the Special Situations Squad and his relationship with Tanya, new threats appear.

Demon Driven
The Demon Accords, Book 2
By: John Conroe
Narrated by: James Patrick Cronin
This continues the wonderful and exciting series. I really can't get enough of it. I am hooked on the vamps, the weres, the great plot and twists, the excellent fighting, the special bond between the main characters, where and how Chris's powers are growing, his new invisible friend, and so much more! This is a powerful series and it sucked me in and I am letting it!
The narrator is the same so that is helpful a

Just like the first book in the Demon Accords series this sequel was 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 that really hurts the book as the characters are a likeable bunch and the story itself is engaging and fun. It all has the feel of a fun, if mindless, action movie and managed to hold my attention from start to finish.

The world building is basic but effective. The paranormal creatures are fairly

The first book was a moderately meandering urban fantasy about supernatural politics through the eyes of a young, wish-fulfillment character (supernatural powers, gaining powers from other groups, working with covert agencies, with a beautiful vampire princess desperately in love with him).

This volume cuts out any pretense and goes for urban fantasy as juvenile comic book: more superpowers, more sex, every problem solved with simple violence, and no real story other than "how can this guy piss

Rating 4.0 stars

Not as good as the first book. I still really liked the main character. He gets insanely overpowered in this book though. Of course, his biggest fight is not against other beings but against himself and trying not to become a monster himself. So in that case, becoming so overpowered actually makes the fight with his inner demon even harder (while making his fight with other monsters so much easier). Something happened early on in the story which I hated. Chris had an issue with

We get it, Tanya Demidova is the most desirable female in the world putting supermodels to shame. It's too bad that the author wasted the little time he did on attempting a plot when he could have devoted the entire book to his crush on his female protagonist.
I have no problem with Chris getting super power after super power as needed. Some might say that removes suspense since its obvious early on that he's as omnipotent as his girlfriend is stunning. But in my opinion those detractors are wron

I like the story and I'm going to continue with the series, but this is clearly a self-published author because the book is riddled with typos and an excessive use of exclamation points. I hope for the rest of the series he got a friend to proofread before he published. ...more

While still fun and fast paced, Demon Driven took the series in a direction I wasn’t crazy about.
Set seven months after the end of God Touched, Demon Driven picks up with our favorite demon banishing NYPD cop. I won’t give up too much of the plot to avoid spoilers, but Gordon is forced to deal with new paranormal enemies as well as complications both within his personal life and within the police force.

First, the good. Like the first book, this was a quick and effortless read that I b

I'd say this series is underdeveloped. The thoughts & actions by Chris are more like those I would expect from a teenager. Not a 24+ year old that has grown up learning how to fight, hide in plain sight and take down demons. For someone who has learned how to keep secrets from a young age, Chris spills "secrets" left and right. Plus, he goes from mildly over powered to extremely over powered in two books.

Overall, the series is probably a good one for young teens. Though, the way powerful

Things still moving here. The relationship between our unlikely "soulmates" (if that word applies) continues. The Mother-in-Law relationship still there but settling in while there is still concern that "he and she aren't right for each other. Okay we can wait for love to conquer all...including giant bearlike creature.

Still a good read I can again recommend you try it. I think most Urban Fantasy fans will like it.

While I did enjoy Demon Driven, I found it to be a bit of a let down from the previous book, God Touched. While Mr.Conroe's Werewolf characters proved to be just as enjoyable as his Vampire ones, unfortunately, the plot that ties it all together seemed to be something of a mess.

After finishing the book I was left a bit puzzled by some of the plot choices.

(view spoiler)
I am very surprised by the huge difference between this book and the first. While it's still the same characters and main background story, this version has the main character, Chris Gordon, now superduper-supernatural.
The result is a constant barrage of incidents centered around this fantastical, indestructible super-human who literally has no weakness and therefore can never lose. After a while, it just becomes repetitive with the somewhat incredulous Gordon winning fight after fight, situati

I'm going to cheat, and just paste in the review I wrote after I finished the existing series at book 4...what can I say, I'm lazy! I've blown through all four of this series in five days. The pace of these books is undeniable. The main characters are interesting and like-able, and their depths seem to barely have been scratched. I'm drooling just thinking about when #5 will be finished/release. I'd like to mention, one more time, that for their cost in the kindle store, they are an un

What a great series!! The concept of this series really intrigues me. You have vampires, wereanimals, fae (haven't seen yet), angels, and more.

Then, the main character who is stronger and more of a badass than all of them combined!!

I typically read a book of a series then take a break and read another book and possibly come back to the series if I want to keep reading. I had to stop myself from starting the preview of the next book so I can keep my ritual.

I love the characters, their bonds to on

What a let down
This series went from very promising, to WTF so fast my head is spinning. What went wrong?
2 big problems. #1. Out of control escalation. Book two reads like the cliff notes of a 7 book series compressed into one book. John Conroe is painting himself into a corner here by burning through all the build up and relationship building and just going straight to the endgame with no foundation under it. Escalation of super powers, Escalation of enemies. Escalation of stakes. It's all ou

Went down to two stars. I wanted to give three stars but it's only just a little above "it's okay". Basically, two events killed the book for me. I explicitly explained one of the below.

Similar to what I said in my other review except this book has considerably more bad stuff than the previous book. You still got the same characters, focusing even more on Chris now. And I didn't really like that. I enjoyed the duo more than the solo.

For example, could John not think of a better drama quarrel o

Demon Driven Is even more action-packed as the first book in the Demon Accords series with our main character Chris Gordan has found him a spot on Ney Yorks Secret supernatural police force. As well as Officer Gordan's relationship with the Demidova family and his relationship in particular with his vampire girlfriend Tanya Demidova. Chris also finds himself with many more powerful enemies and faces many challenges. Overall this book has more than piqued my interest in the rest of the Demon Acco ...more

Dear lord.

The author is obsessed with his female lead, or rather Megan Fox, apparently. Plus, this book and people's love for it just has me so confused. If this book had a female lead, people would be crying "Mary Sue" left and right. They will be criticizing this book for the poorly written love story. They would put down how perfect the main character is. They would write essays over how bad this romantic relationship is.

First of all, he had every right to be upset seeing his girlfriend all

I think this one showed a bit of a sophomore slump in terms of the story itself, but over all still quite engaging.

But you have to be prepared for everything to be a superlative with this series. She's the most beautiful, he's the best looking but most humble, he's the most powerful and getting more powerful every day, she's the only one ever in history - that sort of thing.

It's a very fine Gary Stu and Mary Sue romp with lots of action, even if this one did occasionally get lost in des
Messy. The mind-rape scene was unnecessary and I saw it coming a mile away. It was also completely half-assed. If it was rape, why did nobody do anything? They just sat there and watched it unfold. Just a stupid way to create conflict.

Power creep to the roof. The stand-off between the cast and the US government was ridiculous.

3-stars because I reserve the 2 stars to shitty and 1 star to the really shitty. This was merely mediocre. Will read the next one if just to find some closure to the empty

Just one more? XD


Well same as the last one, it's still really, really good, but I dunno about it being 5*, putting it down to 4*, but still, again, really, REALLY good. Also learning the fruits and vegetables in Norwegian (so I can go see my sister) is really making me want to eat delicious Norwegian fruits... XD

I Hate Critiquing Somebody’s Hard WorK!

Which makes this really easy. Been a fan of John Conroe’s since the beginning and each book has more action and adventure, mystery and intrigue and surprisingly, more depth and soul. I can’t recommend his work enough. The only downside is the wait between books.

The characters are too pretty. The protagonist is too powerful. If you can suspend your disbelief it's a rocking good read. Sucks you in and doesn't let go until the last page.

“He’s threatening the President of the United States if we take you into custody?” Creek asked, his thoughts apparently in order. “Actually, it would be more like a declaration of war on the US government, if you abduct me.” “He thinks he can take on the entire US military?” Creek asked, incredulous. “General, he’s a lot more powerful than I thought.  He’s way beyond demigod status, more like elder god.  He can appear anywhere, anytime. His claws cut through anything. Who knows what else he can do!” Roma said, looking at me for additional information. I shrugged.  Hell, I didn’t know what he could do.  Elder god? “Christian, you could have avoided capture or escaped, right?” Tanya asked. “Yeah,” I said. “Okwari knows this?” she asked. “Yeah, but see, here’s the thing.  He spent a thousand years as a slave in Hell.  I set him free.  His math is pretty simple.” It was quiet for a moment, except for the personnel trying to clean up the lobby.  “Major Deckert, how are you hooked up in all this?” the general asked, obviously acquainted with the security chief. “I work for Ms. Demidova, General,” he said, rocking back on his heels, hands clasped behind his back.  “For what it’s worth, General, in my opinion, I wouldn’t touch Gordon here with a four-mile pole.” “You think that monster could really fight the government?” Creek asked. “Hell, Sir, I was talking about my employer.” He waved in Tanya’s direction. “I didn’t even know that thing existed.  But nothing surprises me with Gordon around.” I gave him my best glare, but it just bounced right off.” 1 likes
