This was a great sequel to Witches Bounty. I thought the way Ann tied more into the characters than the history was very smooth, and she still managed to explain the history. Lots of Irichna adventures again as the beginning is set at Colleen and Duncan's wedding, where both Sidhe and witches attend. There is a battle with 16 Irichna and all other kinds of fell creatures in this wonderful world Ann has created. Titania and Oberon show up quite frequently as well as the dark fae. Definitely a must read if you read the first book and loved it. Oh and did I mention the blooming love/sex/magic between Roz and Ronin? It's pretty much amazing! Yes, read this book... I received this arc in return for an honest review.

I received this from the author in exchange for an honest review. Witch's Bane is a wonderful sequel to Witch's Bounty. I usually don't like the second book in a series as much, but I loved this one! I think it was even better than the first. The characters are so fun and dynamic. I love Roz. She is so feisty. My favorite kind of books are ones staring witches. So I've read a lot of them. This one is definitely in the top 5. If you love action packed books with fiery characters, then this one is definitely for you!

I didn't think it was possible, but I loved this book even more than Witch's Bounty, the first book in the series. Witch's Bane is Roz and Ronin's story. Roz has been screwed in past relationships, and Ronin's one true love had died during childbirth. Neither are sure what to do about their feelings. Love that while maybe she was pursuing a relationship with Ronin, Roz refused to leave her demon fighter sisters on their own, and she always picked them when it came to sitting out of a battle or going in with them. I see the beginnings of a new army beginning to form merging multiple magical beings, and can't wait to see what Ann has in store for us in book 3. Highly suggest this book to anyone looking for a phenomenal paranormal romance

Excellent second book in the Demon Assassin series! Love Roz and Ronin's story, if a bit heavy on the sex scenes. Great teamwork between the witches and between all the species. If you like witches, sidhe, changlings, Dark faer, demons, magic and mayhem then you'll love this book!

Demon Assassins Book Two Roxanne "Roz" Lantry has had several failed relationships in the past, so when Ronin, the head of the Sidhe, presses his suit she is reluctant to start over. However, now that Roz has seen Colleen's happiness with Duncan, she begins to believe she might have a chance. Ronin is determined to make Roz his, but her assertiveness throws him off sometimes. His first love was a human woman in a time where women were subservient. Roz will never be so docile, but Ronin thinks he likes it. When Roz and her friends are taken to the demon borderworld, Ronin will stop at nothing to get her back. If you wanted to see how the other demon-hunting witches were doing, this is the book for you! *I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Spellbinding sequel in this great trilogy. The Demon Assassins Colleen, Roz and Jenna together with the Sidhe realize that the Irichna are more powerful than they thought, when they crash Colleen and Duncan's wedding day. They barely make it with their lives, but the wedding and battle with the demons brings the head of the Sidhe Ronin to a very enlightening discovery and that is that he has finallly, after decades of mourning his late wife, he has feelings for another woman and that woman is the Demon Assassin Roz. But will he be able to break through that hard exterior that she has erected around herself. Roz has had her heart broken so many times that she has hardened her heart in order to protect herself anymore heartache. Now she is having feelings for a certain Sidhe that she doesn't want no matter how much he soothes and calms her. Maybe what she need is a romp with the oh so handsome Ronin and then she can be done with the itch and they can concentrate on ridding the world of the irichna. Problem is she can't have just one..... night. Head of the Sidhe Ronin has always been of a tough exterior, but now he has seen the light around Roz and he feels like he hasn't in decades. Problem is convincing the exotic beauty that she can open up to him and let herself enjoy llife with him, problem is they are both hard headed and dominant. Even in their fight with the demons they have a battle of wills. Will the Sidhe, Unseely and Witches ban together to rid the world of the demons? Bubba rather Niall is still my favorite character. Lots of magical action and sizzling passion!

You will really enjoy this read it's the book 2 in Witch's Bane: Urban Fantasy Romance Demon Assassins. This is a unique storyline that captivates and pulls you in more and more into this fantastic story of witches, changelings, Sidhe, fairies and demons, once your attention is engaged there's no stopping until you are finished. The characters are great and well developed; even the secondary characters makes the story more entertaining. I really couldn't stop turning the page till the end. I really enjoyed every chapter in this book each chapter keeps you on the edge of your seat, the excitement just increases in this book and it made it easier to relate to storyline. There's never a boring moment while reading this. Ann Gimpel is a very creative, talented, and awesome author and If I wasn't already a Fan for life after this series I would be. Roz, Jenna, and Colleen are the last of the demon assassin witches, Demons attack while they are celebrating Colleen’s wedding. Roz is feeling envy, a little jealous and down. Because she has had a couple of bad marriages and been with a few losers. She really wishes Colleen to be happy. But Roz is secretly attracted to Ronin. Ronin is a Daoine Sidhe. As all of the Sidhe he’s beautiful, but he’s also headstrong and arrogant. But he what he wants is Roz. Unfortunately, she’s is easily irritated by men and for Ronin to get close to her requires some planning. But when he tried to use magic on her she caught him and call him on it. If you are like me you will be happy for Roz and Ronin HEA. :D I have always love reading Ann Gimpel books, you can tell she puts her heart and soul into her writing . This author phoned it in and it got the best connection ever and her series are always phenomenal, they are well written, creative, the characters are well developed, what I'm saying is they are all a excellent read. This series is well pace, form just right and well executed. This is a captivating mature storyline, entertaining characters and the greatest fantasy. You will want and be happy to pay the price to read this series! Yep, each storyline in this collection is fantastic entertainment. Because Ann Gimpel is a creative author who knows that there are readers like me who love for her stories to continue and hate for them to end I Highly Recommended to Readers who like romance and love to be romantic. This series gives readers this so surely they will enjoy this one as I did. I received this book from Ann Gimpel for an honest opinion in a review and I love to communicate with other readers. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you're a fan of all things naughty, sexual tension, action and humor, this is perfect for you.

It start out with Colleen's wedding but with all the fae and witches in attendance guess the demons and their friends got mad they didn't get their invites. Action-packed lol But this story is centered around Roz she is one of the three Demon Assassin witches let in the world. She's been burned by live before so she is a bit closed off. Ronin is a Daoine Sidne and he has set his sights on Roz the day he meet her. He just has to make his way carefully. She is a bit hard to handle and he us just used to being a bossy warrior lol what a combo! Danger us all around not only them but their friends too but they have some unlikely ad. I loved this adventure, it's amazing with powerful kick butt witches, know it all fae, mysterious dark fae, fun changlings and evil demons. It was AWESOME, mystery and action-packed. The characters seem so real and there interaction was fantastic to read. I can't wait for the next book. Warning this is highly adictive and you may not want the adventure to end! Book given for an honest review and I honestly loved it A must read for all magic fans

Weddings and Working Together. This is the second book in the Demon Assassin series. The book can be read as a standalone but I don't recommend that you do. It begins right where Witch's Bounty ended so it helps to have read that to understand what's going on and the story will continue in Witches Rule. There is violence and the sex is hot and steamy so definitely 18+. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. The author did a great job of trying to quickly summarize the story thus far, so new readers aren't completely lost. Races that used to be united once again come together to fight against the demons. But will it be enough? I look forward to reading Witches Rule to see how the story ends. I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Another spell-binding read!  This is a terrific book!!  It is book 2 of the Witch Chronicles and I think it is even better than the first!!  Ann sure is capable of weaving some great tales that include not only Witches, but Sidhe, Changlings, and more!  (oh my!)  This book continues the main story arc but the romance and hot sex are all Roz & Ronin!  Will they actually get to the romance part or will they be doomed from the start?  They both have a hard time with trust and opening up the cage & walls they have around their heart.  But with their time alone together being limited, will feisty Roz let the “take-charge” Ronin in?  Toss in some headstrongness, stubbornness and their intense need for independence and you have a recipe for a great book!!!  Ann has very quickly become one of my favorite authors because of her unique take on the magical community as well as some really great romances!!!  I can’t wait for book 3!!!
