When Homicide Detective Kara Gillian finds traces of arcane power on a body, she quickly realizes that this is no ordinary murder. The serial killer known as the Symbol Man is a nightmare that Beaulac, Louisiana thought had ended three years ago, but now he's back for an encore and leaving every indication on the flesh of his victims that he is well-versed in demonic lore.

However, Kara is a Summoner of Demons, and may be the only cop on the city's small force who can stop the killer. Able to see and interact with a world most people can't, Kara must draw on her skills as a police officer and master of the arcane to stop the Symbol Man from killing again and possibly summoning something even she can't control.

But with a demonic lord of unearthly beauty and power haunting her dreams, and a handsome yet disapproving FBI agent dogging her waking footsteps, she may be in way over her head..

First Thought when Finished: I was thrilled to see that Mark of the Demon was a little bit Urban Fantasy and Mystery/Thriller! Glad I have 3 more of the series ready to go!

Overall Thoughts: I love Diana Rowland’s White Trash Zombie series and have owned these forever. I was not disappointed. I really liked Kara–she was smart, interesting, quirky, and can kick butt. I loved that she was cop and has a past that makes her a better cop. The mystery was strong. I am very interested to see how things play out with Kara and all the craziness that is going on in her world. I have to say that last little bit about the naked pictures on the internet made me laugh out loud. You will just have to read it to figure out what that refers too!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Liv Anderson / Length: 12 hrs and 26 mins

Liv did an excellent job with Mark of the Demon. I have never listened to her narrate a book before but I was impressed. I will be watching for books narrated by her in the future.

Final Thought: Need to squeeze book 2 in soon!

  1. I want to read this series now as well since I just recently won the most recent book from Diana. Naked Pictures on the internet? I want to know more!

  2. Do ya know I read the first three books in this series and totally enjoyed them and then bam..I stopped. Someone I didn’t keep track of releases. I am off to fix that and I totally have you to thank!!

  3. I really liked this one too, I had this on my TBR for a while too, but audible only had books #3 and 4 published, so I was excited when I saw last year that they finally when back and published book 1 and 2.
    Being the fan of mystery that you are I’m not surprise you enjoyed this one πŸ™‚
    I totally agree with your narrators note.

    I’ve loved this series for a while. I started it back when there was only two or three books out in it. I love Kara and most of her friends. As you meet more of the demons, I really start to like them. Some have some really great personalities. I can’t wait to see what you think going forward. Great review.
