meilufay’s #CBR4 review #48 Secrets of the Demon (Kara Gillian #3) by Diana Rowland
As hard as it was to write my review of the second book in the Kara Gillian series for fear of giving away spoilers for the first, it is even harder now.
With each of these novels, there’s a self-contained murder mystery as well as narrative threads that play out across the series as a whole. This book delves deeper into demon politics, Rhyzkhal’s motivations and the deepening mysteries about FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff. I liked the book but was very frustrated by the cliffhanger ending. Even though I always read these sorts of books in order (I’m pretty pathological about it), I feel as if a book should tell a self-contained story and the Kara Gillian series is starting to unravel a bit in that regard. The murder mysteries in books three and four were less engaging than the ongoing story but we’re still only getting that ongoing story in bits and pieces. I did enjoy this book, and I really enjoyed the fourth one, but I’m starting to get annoyed with the series.
