Vengeance of the Demon (Kara Gillian Series #7) by Diana Rowland

Demon summoner Kara Gillian is on the wrong side of the law—and there’s evidence to prove it. Too bad the courts don’t accept “fighting demonic forces” as justification for murder and mayhem.
Yet Kara has problems that go way beyond her legal woes. When the enemy demonic lords spur their human accomplices into high gear, master summoner Katashi aggressively pursues their goal to establish a permanent gate between Earth and the demon realm. To hell with the consequences for humanity.
The line between ally and enemy blurs as Kara gathers the remnants of her posse to prevent a devastating demonic incursion, but a shattered trust may cost them the war and put Kara behind bars. With treachery rife, and her loved ones in danger, Kara must call upon the essence of who she truly is in order to rally back from a crushing loss.
And if she can’t, the world is going straight to hell.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Rowland completely upends the Kara Gillan series in this installment. Everything we thought we knew about the inhabitants of Rowland’s universe is called into question, with devastating results. Rising star Rowland kicks it into a whole new gear with this outstanding story that is heartbreaking, terrifying, and utterly thrilling!" —RT Reviews (top pick GOLD)

"I was awestruck at the twists and turns and the, "Oh man, why didn't I see that before!" ... This series is top-notch in the genre. Gritty and dark, this is really good reading!" —Felicia Day

"A killer mid-series offering. It’s hard to believe that any book could create as much anticipation as the climactic end of Sins of the Demon, but Touch of the Demon opens up a whole new world, mythology, and love life for Kara." —All Things Urban Fantasy

"Touch of the Demon is hands down the darkest, grittiest installment yet, and it was absolutely fantastic." —Sweet Tidbits

"I don’t think there’s a world quite like these books, nor do I think there’s a character quite like Kara.... It’s a truly excellent book, and my main problem now is that it’s set such very high expectations for the whole year." —Fangs for the Fantasy

"Diana Rowland knows what Urban Fantasy readers want, and she delivers every time! ... Ms. Rowland gets two thumbs up for a job well done. I absolutely cannot wait for more!" —Night Owl Reviews

"While drastically different than any one of the books in this series, it is by far the one most packed with story and evolution. A perfect change of pace, upping the conflict and mystery in one fell swoop. It will leave you chomping at the bit for the next one." —Zombie Joe

"The changes here will breathe fresh air into an already exceptional series for several more novels.... Five-star reading and twists you never thought of are coming." —Wicked Scribes

"A nifty combination of police procedural and urban fantasy." —Charlaine Harris

I just finished a second read of this book. I went through quickly the first time to satisfy my need for answers, then went back through and found the parts I missed that added a whole new dimension to the thing. I love the depth of these characters and the intricacy of the plot threads. Can't wait until the next one.

I love it very much! I saw Diana Rowland's Facebook stated that she already writing next book, "Legacy of the Demon". I can't wait!!!

Lots of character development but yes, there were questions unanswered. I'm not 100% sure why the change in direction but I'm sticking to this series until the end.

The seventh novel in the Kara Gillian series has proven to be my favorite; I stayed up to the wee hours of the night finishing it. The imagery is breathtaking; and even now as I find myself writing this review, my mind is still wrapped up in the world Diane Rowland has brilliantly weaved together. The entire novel evoked the emotional range from love to fear; and everything in-between, but when the people you love the most in your life are the ones who have betrayed you so thoroughly, where does that leave you? Bereft, heartbroken, angry, oh yeah, there were tears while reading this. I LOVED IT, if a story can actually bring me to tears, it’s just a big WOW for me. I am left with many questions; the series is nowhere near done, that's OK for me because I LOVE this world, I love Kara and I cannot WAIT for more! Vengeance of the Demon: Kara Gillian, Book 7 gets a HUGE 5 Boundless Stars from me! I am breathlessly awaiting book 8, Legacy of the Demon; I just hope it releases in Audiobook!...Sara

Good book

I'm struggling with this one; on one hand it has a lot of new character development which was great for the reader's internal character rap sheet, but on the other hand the new revelations can only go one of two ways - neither of which leave me feeling satisfied. I don't feel angsty because the plot "isn't going my way" rather I feel like now certain plot reveals are going to tear huge gaps in our assumed timeline with little to no way to adequately represent them. It's sort of like how LOTR needed the Silmarillion to engulf the history we were missing. I think the author has shot herself in the foot with where things seem to be heading. TD;DR - this volume gives me indigestion.

This book is so badly written that it leaves the reader confused. So many detail and reply of pass detail that the story moves along to slowly. I agree, this might be my last book for this series.

Don't waste your time. This book is boring and whiny and so far off the mark of how the serious started. I'm serious don't read this book. You will regret it. I'm done with this series.
