Kurzbeschreibung

Book 3 of the Demon Accords. Partnered in an uneasy alliance with federal law enforcement, Chris Gordon has been hunting down the outlaw gang, Loki's Spawn, who attacked his vampire girlfriend. But when he finds unexpected hostages who trigger his baser instincts, Chris is thrown into a search for answers to dark questions. How to control his inner demon, what do the Spawn want with children, and who is hunting him?

His search takes him deep under the Big Apple, to the center of the Pentagon, and South of the US Border. All while learning the finer points of vampire politics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another top-notch effort 4. November 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I was a little concerned with the 2nd book in the series that Chris had grown too powerful, too difficult to stop but this book put him right on the edge again. Gripping action, great character development and progression coupled with a tight plot and awesome fight scenes make this book shine. Another one you just can't put down.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Feel-good vampire/superhero fantasy 3. Juli 2013
Von Simon Pot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Good guy vampires (there are still some evil ones, but they are essentially social pariahs in the early 21st Century...kind of the equivalent of Southern racist, reluctantly ex-slaveholders...they can't be totally dismissed, but all the "cool vamps" seem to be patiently waiting for these distasteful anachronisms to fade away -- or, more expediently, for clusters of them step out of line far enough that they can be justifiably wiped out from time to time).

Similar situation for "were" creatures (wolves, bears, weasels, wolverines...if it's a fierce mammal, someone somewhere can turn into it).

The protagonist is a...well...he's a really nice guy. He's a demon-banishing, non-bloodsucking, non-metamorphosizing quasi-vampire with werewolf undertones and a seemingly infinite capacity to manipulate magical energies (as a savant, rather than learned spell-caster, which anyone else who manipulates similar energies seems to need to be).

He's a genuinely nice guy. Very gentlemanly...except when he "Hulks"-out and destroys everything that in any way threatens anyone he cares about (most definitively his girlfriend the more-or-less Queen" of the modern, forward thinking vamp sophisticates of the world...who also happens to be the most beautiful female humanoid in existence).

I've rally enjoyed the first two books. The characters are well drawn and the protagonist (who serves double duty as the first person narrator) oozes well-intentioned sincerity and the genuine desire to "do good."

It's about the least "dark" of any vampire/urban fantasy you'll ever come across. Even when tortured by inner demons (sometimes literally), everyone is pretty well in touch with their feelings, and there is no emotional pain so intransigent that it can't be put into perspective by a good "talking to" by Gramps, the 1200 year-old Vampire Elder Selka, or one of a couple lovingly-teasing big sister types.

This is not a complaint. There is enough blood and gore, tension and excitement, that the saccharine sweetness with which it flirts never quite overwhelms. The books have a clever and consistent set of underlying fantasy physics tht are fun to play with.

...And you never have to worry about the good guys losing. The protagonist is literally a Deus Ex Machina. Not only did God send him here to fight the good ought, but apparently, there is no limit to how powerful he can become. It's only be ever a matter of finding a dire-enough situation to instinctively summon that next level of previously-unsuspected-new-and-invincibility-bestowing power.

Honestly, it's ok with me. Quite the opposite of a comlaint Real life is complicated and sufficiently lacking in evidence of cosmic purpose or enduring happy endings. I'm always grateful for stories that let me experience the fantasy vicariously and believe in it for a little while.

To be honest, I'm dreading reading my way through to the end of the fourth book (they are quick reads). Not looking forward to returning full time to he Real World.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can't get much better. Super series 11. April 2013
Von Claudette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Another great book by Conroe.

I don't think he can write a bad one.

Chris has been hunting Loki's Spawn and killing them all. His alter ego Grim, for Grim Reaper, his call sign, has had no trouble mowing down the Loki Spawn. In fact. They aren't much of a match for Grim at all.

He's been working with the Feds as an independent after his NYPD team was disbanded. General Creek runs the show and Gina is his contact and works for DHS.

After wiping out another nest of Loki's Spawn he's headed home. He hasn't seen Tanya in three weeks and he's more than ready for some down time.

Once Chris is back he heads for the Citadel and Tanya. Once there he meets her Uncle Illarian. A vamp with his own agenda.

Chris and his Goddaughter are attacked on their way home from a school function. This is the first time we meet another shadowy agency that has a boatload of interest in Chris.

One of their minions stabs Chris with a bone full of depleted uranium. This actually hurts Chris. Turns out this stuff is toxic to him. Grim takes over and kills all of the attackers. He then gets Toni home safely. This new group means business.

He also meets Nathan Stewart and his Aide Adine Benally. Nathan is a older guy who has served Presidents for decades. Much more to this guy and his aide than meets the eye.

They meet when Chris, Gina and General Creek are called in reference an attack by the Loki's Spawn. They wiped out an entire town down near the Mexican Border. Took female hostages and headed back into Mexico.

The race is on to get to Mexico and kill these Weres. We also meet their leader. One bad dude who has a pet thats a little more than a big, giant black Were.

Just a great read.

Five stars.

All I can say about this book (and the rest in the series), is be prepared! Because once you start it, it will not allow you to put it down till you are finished. Awesome reads, and I cannot wait for the next installment in the series!
