Blog Tour: Demon's Fury by Jocelynn Drake

I received a copy of Demon's Fury in exchange for my review.

Having been coerced into working for the Towers, a place he escaped when he was younger, Gage's life has changed dramatically. Still wanting to help people while working for the enemy, Gage discovers more violent and dangerous magic than he's encountered before. To add to that, Gage has been found by a TAPPS investigator, who wants his help in discovering who killed a fellow tattoo artist. While things in his professional life get hectic, Gage has to worry about the affect it will have on his relationship with Trixie and the repercussions of being a Warlock in a relationship.

I really enjoyed Demon's Fury, the book definitely made me want to read more in the series. Though there are books in the series before Demon's Fury, I didn't actually feel all that lost when the story was unfolding (though reading the other books would probably have been beneficial!) and that added to my enjoyment. Though interestingly, I didn't feel that I'd missed any character development that made the story unbelievable, showing great skill on the part of the author.

There were some rather gory moments of Demon's Fury, the author didn't scrimp at showing them, though I think that helped set the right tone for the book, this isn't a paranormal romance with a hint of danger, this is a much darker book (which does have a hint of romance) and I think that that worked well.

There were a variety of relationships on show in Demon's Fury and I thought that that was interesting to read. There was Gage and Gideon's relationship, which I am yet to figure out other than the fact that it is complicated beyond belief. Then there was the relationship between Trixie and Gage, which left the reader with a shocker at the end, and my heart broke for the two of them. There was also the slightly antagonistic relationship between Gage and the TAPPS investigator.

All the elements of Demon's Fury worked together to make a very interesting read, and I am looking forward to reading more in the series.
