Review: The Trouble with Demons

The Trouble with Demons
The Trouble with Demons by Lisa Shearin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's a little while since I read the first two in the series, and I was pleased to see that there are now several more. These are funny, sassy, action-packed books with a streetwise and smart-mouthed heroine.
Although she (and even more so, her family) fall into the "lovable rogue" category, they put themselves at risk repeatedly to save others' lives. That's something that calls for a bit of willing suspension of disbelief, but Lisa Shearin pulls it off as far as I'm concerned (mainly by showing how personal and family connections between the characters motivate them).
This contribution to the series keeps it moving nicely, with an ending which leaves Raine with the immediate problem solved but more enemies and complications than ever, a good solution to "middle book syndrome".
Recommended if you want something light, humourous and black-and-white with plenty of fast-moving action.
