The Stone Demon (Iron Witch Series #3)by Karen Mahoney
They say the truth sets you free, but they have no idea how far off base that is. Free? I don’t think so. After being tricked into opening the doorway to the Demon Realm by Aliette, the Wood Queen, Donna Underwood is faced with a terrible ultimatum from the newly released demon hordes: the alchemists must deliver the Philosopher’s Stone, or the world will be plunged into a devastating modern-day Dark Age. Donna is sent to London, where she can learn how to recreate the Stone and complete her alchemist’s training. But time is running out. As she faces Demian, the vengeful demon king, Donna realizes the awful truth about collecting the Stone’s elements. And this time, even braving death may not be enough to save the world.

Reviewed by Sabrina Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I enjoyed this series. I don’t know if it will be a reread for me but I would recommend it to YA novel readers. The overarching plot that is seen over the course of the series is finally resolved. In my opinion, it’s not completely satisfactory in the ending, but it works. It gives enough of an explanation that I will accept it. The character development was kind of slow throughout the series. A lot of things happened to them, and there were shocks to be had all around. However, in general, I feel like they were the same characters that they were at the beginning of the series, just with more understanding and communication between them. Again, I’ll accept this as this whole series took place over 3 months or so. The epilogue that we were given followed up on the relationships more than anything, and I couldn’t have been happier about that. Though it still left some questions, I was glad to know what would happen in the immediate future and the author was great about leaving it open for a continuation in the same world. Overall, I was satisfied by the conclusion, and I definitely think that if you enjoyed the installments that came before, you’ll be happy with this one. I’ll be on the lookout for any more stories coming from this universe.
