The demon invasion of Earth has begun, and as the world’s top arcane expert, demon summoner Kara Gillian is leading the battle against them. Unnatural catastrophes, odd plagues, and martial law of the norm, and Kara is hard-pressed to keep up with the mounting threats. Add in the arrival of demonic lords with conflicting goals, and she has the perfect recipe for global disaster. Yet when a centuries-old scheme puts the future of humanity on the line, Kara must scramble to stop the machinations, though treachery, hidden dangers, and ancient enemies block her at every turn. Soon she uncovers the disturbing legacy of the demon realm and the hideous betrayal at its core. However, before Kara can unmask the one behind the assault on Earth, she’ll need to perform the most dangerous summoning ever attempted―and if her enemy has its way, it may just be her last. But no matter how much of her own blood she has to spill, it’ll be a cold day in hell before she surrenders
Four Boundless Stars
This is one time that I had wished I read the book instead of listening to it and not because of anything wrong with the narration, I love Liv Anderson, she has been consistent with her characters throughout the series and I have loved and looked forward to listening to her. The issue I have is, this world is so complex and it started in the beginning of the series and now 8 books later we are starting to get answers to some of those burning questions. However, do to the complexity of the questions the answers are just as complex. So I find myself in a quandary of not quite grasping everything that has happened or is explained. I plan on re-listening to the book and possible even purchasing the paperback and reading it. I even contemplated holding off doing the review until I went through it a second time.
I was torn how to rate this, because the way I listen to audiobooks I am usually doing other things, driving, getting ready in the am, etc. With Legacy of the Demon you need to give it 100% focus to fully soak up the story and all its nuances. So with the way it stand I am giving the story 4 Boundless stars I like it but I am going to listen or read it again. But as it stands, the story is still full of action, suspense, twists and turns and one seriously kick ass heroin!
