I do enjoy authors who write several different series and each one is unique. Patricia Briggs is one of those authors. Sham lives in a world where magic exists, but not everyone believes in it. Sham does since she is both a thief and a sorceress. Her land was taken from her people and she is doing what she can to take it back where she can from the nobility. A killer is running amok and killing the nobility. There seems to be a pattern, but she can't quite see it. The Reeve of the land asks her for her help, so she poses as his mistress to help. He is one of those who doesn't believe in magic, so when she tells him it's a demon doing the killing.... Sham is street smart, so she can get the job done. She just has to keep from being tempted to do what she's been doing with her stealing from the rich. This is number 4 in the series, but I didn't feel like I'd missed anything by not reading the first three in the series. But I am now intrigued enough to go looking for them. A very neat mixture of a mystery, fantasy, and a wee bit of romance. Highly recommendable.

Ignore the awful cover. If you like Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series, you'll love the heroine who makes this a delightful read with laugh out loud humor. The plot is intriguing. Even though I guess early on who was the villain, I did not foresee some of the surprising (in a good way) plot twists. The story is worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Patricia Briggs creates a multi-dimensional heroine. With excellent plotting she ties in personal problems with the murder mystery. The romance is traditional but the hero she creates raises it up a notch. Solid secondary characters. The twists and turns are appropriately placed - the pacing is tight. Good overall read.

I'm new at writing Reviews (haven't done so since being required to write 'Book Reports' in Elementary School (over 50 years ago now). What can I say? First, the 'action' begins immediately. I've read books that I knew 'would be good' but that I also knew I would have to 'wade through' the first 30 to 50 pages before my interest would 'pick up'. Not so with "When Demons Walk". The action begins almost immediately and continues to rise toward a 'peak' that truly does not 'crest' until the final pages of the book. Patricia Briggs is one of those authors who will appear to you on the shelf and you may be drawn to the cover art initially but you will find yourself returning to a major book store to find other books by the same author. I would like to see a sequel to "When Demons Walk",

Sham, the female lead of this Patricia Briggs work, is an interesting and well-developed character. Some reviewers considered the outcome predictable - I did not find it that way. The story continued to evolve to higher levels maintaining my interest along the way. Sham starts out as a thief with magical gifts that help her stay undetected as she performs her Robin-hood like thievery. She is retained by the good guy Lord of the Manor to help figure out who is killing people. The villian turns out to be demonic, and Sham, working alongside the Lord of the Manor, with the help of her magical gifts and the training she has received in how to use them, becomes the Miss Marple of Magicland. The story seems trite as I try to write about it, but in reality it is a bit deeper than this, and the character development is well done. As the writer describes the clothing with the soft sleeves and hidden pockets, she paints a very vivid picture of Sham. As she describes the wheel-chair bound leading man, and the magical Runes that have forced him to endure this handicap, she adds a level of hope to others that are stuggling with being wheel-chair bound, I think. At least it seems that way to me. The story is focused on teens, according to the reviews, but I am quite a bit older, and it appeals to me as well. It is a fairly happy story without too much violence or sexual tension, and it makes a good read for adults from 12 to 92, I think. Not a classic for all time, but a great piece of escapism for that rainy afternoon, as the rating chart indicates. If you like her work - and I think it is difficult to not like this writer unless you simply do not like this type of escapism fantasy - then I think you would enjoy her Mercy Thompson series very much.

This is a light read with fun characters, an egaging plot, a good mystery, and a happy ending. The description is not correct; the summary given is for Briggs other work "Steal the Dragon".

I personally LOVE the way Patricia Briggs writes her books. I read every book of hers that I can get my hands on and am never disappointed by the end result. I would recommend this series to whomever happened to be inquiring about it. My personal favorites of this series is the first and last, simply because it's the same main character and I like the way she thinks. When Demons Walk come a close second on my list though. I hoped this helped those who are looking for it.
