The Trouble with Demons by Lisa Shearin

Buy it Now!

"The Trouble with Demons" is the third book about Raine Benares, and unfortunately, the next one doesn't come out until next year! I'm going to have wait...and maybe even longer than that because the library can be slow! Some day's it's a sad thing to be a poor book-addict...

I loved this book! Previously we've been following the adventures of Raine, a girl who really wasn't anything that special until a soul-sucking rock with incredible power decided that she would be it's new master. Since then her magical power has grown infinitely, and she's had to fight off a host of people who want her dead so the can have the rock's (the Saghred) power for themselves!

In this book she's still fighting for her life, but now Demons have been added to the scene. Apparently the King of the Demons has been stuck inside the Saghred for awhile now (remember how I mentioned it sucks souls?), and now the Queen of the Demons thinks she's found a way to get him out.

Of course there are still all the old players competing for the Saghred, and Raine is having romantic complications as well! Shearin did a really good job with continuing the character development in this book. Yes, there is a lot of magic and action, but she didn't let that simply carry the book, she let the characters grow and develop through everything as well!
