Book Review: The Demon Accords Compendium – Volume 2

The Demon Accords Compendium, Volume 1: Stories from the Demon Accords UniverseThe Demon Accords Compendium, Volume 1: Stories from the Demon Accords Universe by John Conroe

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing. It was awesome to read some short stories set in the Demon Accords Universe. I could read short stories all day about these characters! This is a great way to hold out while waiting for the next addition to the Demon Accords series. I hope John Conroe does more of these Compendiums!

In this volume, John presents the following short stories.

“First Impressions” which is Lydia’s impression of Chris right from the very start. It takes us way back to the beginning to Chris’s first encounter with Tanya from Lydia’s eyes.

“Growin Pains” is a story about a young demon hunter, Chris Gordon, but told from the viewpoint of his grandfather, Alex Gordon.

The last two stories follow the events of Summer Reign.

“Under Heaven and Earth” is about Keitan who becomes a newly infected ware during an act of heroism protecting the girls from his UVM class from a new rogue ware who’s going nothing but sex on the brain during a camping trip.

“Boredom Killed the Vampire” was a bit of a comical tale about Vadim. He tries to make trouble for Declan, but not in a malicious way, just to stir up the pot. It ends up backfiring and he has a serious heart to heart with Tayan about his place and purpose.

I’m looking forward to reading Volume 2!

Review: Shadows & Dust

Shadows & Dust
Shadows & Dust by Yvonne Nicolas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vampires, demons and hunters, oh my! This novel starts out fast paced and doesn’t disappoint! Havoc, a motorcycle riding, sword swinging, glock toting, supersonic power wielding, badass bold beauty takes you on a wild adventure in a war between the dammed and the living. Vampires consume demons and become hard as hell to kill hybrids. But our huntress heroine is up for the challenge with her newfound shadow drifter young helper. It is a wonderful good vs. evil story with just a twist of friend/family/foe alliances found in those whom you might not expect. This story has tons of flavor like a great cup of java and is a superb read. Yvonne Nicolas brings vampire hunting to a new height! Bravo!
