Kate’s life is far from normal. She can see auras, her boyfriend is immortal, and her powers make her a target. But now that the Demon Lord is hunting her, things are about to go from dangerous to truly deadly. Packed with action, mind-blowing plot twists, and characters you can’t get enough of, this is a fast-paced, heart-pounding read from cover to cover.
“Cameras. You’re very lucky to have them. The power to freeze time, capture a moment, an emotion…a person. That’s the most amazing thing to me.” Patrick, Demons.
I have to say I’m more than a little impressed by Demons, so much so that I read this book in one sitting. I was worried that I would have trouble keeping up since I haven’t yet read Seers, which is the first book in Heather Frost’s Seers series. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that Demons stood on its own quite well. Plus there was a short refresher where Kate sort of lets you know what’s been going on the past few weeks in the beginning of the book, which pretty much caught me up.
If it wasn’t obvious by my quote above I have absolutely fallen head over heels for Patrick. I love his character and how he so easily fits in with Kate’s family. I adore the way he is with her twin sisters, Jenna and Josie, and the dinner scene in the beginning of the book felt like a scene from my life when I was 16 and invited my first boyfriend to dinner.
While Patrick is my favorite, I like all the characters in this book including the supporting characters and especially the bad guys. It is so important to have a main character that is relatable and I think Frost does a really great job of not only making Kate fit the average girl, but of rounding out Lee and Toni as supporting characters.
When I picture Kate I don’t feel like she’s this perfect girl or the most gorgeous female in the school. I picture her as average, not gorgeous, but not bad looking. She has flaws, but she also has really great qualities that make you want her to succeed.
That’s another thing like I like about Frost’s writing. Her characters are realistic, they have a balance. I picture Patrick as highly attractive, but he lives well below his means in a warehouse with Toni, who is his opposite when it comes to material things, which works well. They have this adorable bromance going on with banter that makes me grin.
I love Kate’s grandfather and what happened at the end, well I can’t even bring myself to talk about it because I’ll get all sad again, which is just a testament to how much of a connection I had with this book.
But the real treat is the plot. Frost gives good plot. A big twist in the story comes when we found out that Sean, Patrick’s brother is behind it all or rather the Demon inside of him is. Demons is action packed with the heartwarming love between Kate and Patrick, the way it delves further into the Guardians, the virus that infects Patrick, and discovering what Kate really is and why the Demon Lord wants her. There were several jaw dropping moments in this book, three that I can think of off the top of my head and one happens at the very end while Patrick is alone in his room, or so he thinks, so look for that.
Overall I have to say that Frost has sucked me into this world she has created and I can’t seem to find my way back out. She weaves together an intricate tale of teenage angst and paranormal intrigue, wrapping it all up in this fantastical [yes I just made that word up] bubble that I want to live in forever. I connected to this book on a level I didn’t expect to. Maybe it’s because I also have two sisters of my own and one of them is named Jenna, or possibly because I understand what it was like to be a teenager with a lot of responsibilities, either way Demons really captured me and if paranormal, romantic teen thrillers are your thing, this book is for you.
