#BookReview:: Demons (Seers #2) by Heather Frost

Kate’s life is far from normal. She can see auras, her boyfriend is immortal, and her powers make her a target. But now that the Demon Lord is hunting her, things are about to go from dangerous to truly deadly. Packed with action, mind-blowing plot twists, and characters you can’t get enough of, this is a fast-paced, heart-pounding read from cover to cover.

Demon starts a couple of days after where Seers left off - with Selena escaping and the twins back to safety. Kate now is trying to balance out her life as much as possible. With a few secrets out in the open, she has more help to cope with her abilities as a seer. She also manages to balance her life in school and between Aaron and Patrick. But, the target is still on Kate. With Far Darrig coming closer and mysterious illness bringing the guardians down, the stakes are much higher this time.

In this installment, the romance between Kate and Patrick blooms finally. It was nice to see them taking some time to try and be ‘normal’ and do common teenage stuff. It was also good to see that Kate made time for ‘family stuff’ as well - like watching Josie’s soccer match and Jenna’s recital. I liked Aaron a bit more in this book as he is genuinely a good guy. Lee’s character plays a more important role in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed her involvement. She is totally a crazy girl yet I cannot help but love her the most. Few more characters are introduced in this book – some completely new and some whom we have only heard of in the first installment. The plot keeps a stable pace, continuing from book one.

There’s a bit more of everything in this book – friendship, romance and adventure. As I mentioned in my review of book one, Heather Frost is quite young and she can only mature with time. You can see that in the second book already where she has managed to put enough twists to take anyone by surprise. You may be able to guess one or two of them, but I bet you will not be able to guess all of them. 

Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC… I will be eagerly waiting for the third instalment.

P.S :: I also love the way the book summaries (for both the parts) do not give out much about the actual plot. So be ready to be pleasantly surprised.
