Overview

Kara Gillian is in seriously deep trouble. She’s used to summoning supernatural creatures from the demon realm to our world, but now she’s the one who’s been summoned. Kara is the prisoner of the demonic lord Mzatal, but quickly discovers that she’s far more than a mere hostage. But waiting for rescue has never been her style, and Kara has no intention of being a pawn in someone else’s game.

Yet intrigue and treachery are running rampant, and Kara is hard pressed to keep her wits about her. Her abilities as a homicide detective are put to the test as she seeks the truth about FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff; Rhyzkahl, the demon lord she is sworn to; and her own history in the demon realm. She's going to need all the strength and tenacity she's developed as a cop and a summoner, or the hell she endures may well last forever.

Touch of the Demon is the exciting fifth installment of the Kara Gillian series.

A Book Obsession


"Yet again, Diana Rowland has knocked my socks off with a stellar book that left me positively desperate for more."

Carrie Vaughn


"Mark of the Demon crosses police procedure with weird magic. Diana Rowland's background makes her an expert in the former, and her writing convinces me she's also an expert in the latter in this fast-paced story that ends with a bang."

Night Owl Paranormal


"Rowland once again writes the perfect blend of police procedural and paranormal fantasy."

Errant Dreams


"The sex definitely sizzles, the characters are engaging, the world is intriguing, and action pulled me right in. Highly recommended!"

SciFiChick


"Rowland’s world of arcane magic and demons is fresh and original...[and her] characters are well-developed and distinct.... Dark, fast-paced, and gripping."

All Things Urban Fantasy


"Phenomenal world building, a tough yet vulnerable heroine, a captivating love triangle, and a increasingly compelling metanarrative that just gets juicier with each book.... Blows most other urban fantasies out of the park."

Charlaine Harris


"A nifty combination of police procedural and urban fantasy."

RT Book Reviews


"With each new chapter in this mesmerizing UF series, the gifted Rowland constructs her world and adds depth to her characters, all while giving readers clues to the over-arching plotline."

Fresh Fiction


"Diana Rowland has built a fascinating and compelling urban fantasy series, with main character Kara as tough as she needs to be yet vulnerable enough to be realistic."

Library Journal

Homicide detective and demon summoner Kara Gillian finds the tables turned when she is targeted for a summoning by the demon Mzatal. The third entry (after Secrets of the Demon and Sins of the Demon) in this urban fantasy series places its heroine in an unexpected and uneasy position.
