Book Description

Hanging out with demons can be hell....

It's been three months since psychologist Megan Chase made the stunning discovery that the world is filled with demons, and once more the situation is too hot to handle. Ironically, Megan -- the only person in the world without a little personal demon sitting on her shoulder -- has become the leader of a demon "family," but now some unknown arcane power is offing her demons in a particularly unpleasant fashion. And while her demon lover Greyson Dante is still driving her wild with desire, he's also acting strangely evasive. Then there's the truth about Megan's past -- the truth she's never known. Caught between personal problems and personal demons, Megan is having one hell of a hard time. Will the help of her Cockney guard demons and her witch friend Tera be enough so that Megan can finally resolve the past, survive the present, and face the future?


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Psychic psychologist Megan Chase continues with her sometimes amusing, sometimes terrifying attempts to step into the leadership role thrust upon her in 2008's Personal Demons. Megan's empathy for her clients and callers to her radio show leaves her fighting an uphill battle to persuade shoulder-riding personal demons to be less vicious. Now three demons under her charge have mysteriously exploded; other groups have suffered similar losses, but some of her demons think deserting her for a stronger leader will keep them safe. With the help of fire demon Greyson Dante, witch Tara Green and an assortment of demon underworld figures, Megan hunts down the beings trying to undermine her authority. Readers who haven't read the first book will struggle to keep track of the minor characters and demon hierarchy, but fans will enjoy the developing complexities. (Aug.)

3.0 out of 5 stars AKA Megan Has a Meltdown April 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Demon Inside, the second in what is at this point the Megan Chase trilogy, is a fast and furious race from start to finish and strictly on plot alone, it is a FANTASTIC continuation of the series. Dangerous and filled with a heated intensity, it grabs you by the throat from the first page and doesn't let you go before the last, no matter HOW long ago you SHOULD'VE put the book down and gone to bed. A word of caution, though...it isn't a stand alone book, as there is far too much that isn't explained and it does simply pick up three months after the point where Personal Demons leaves off, so you really should start there.

I loved Personal Demons despite a few issues with the plot and some technical stuff, and consider it a five star read. I thought the plot and writing mechanics in Demon Inside were AWESOME - even better than the first - but I can only rate it three stars, because in this book, I did NOT like the Megan Chase, PhD. character AT ALL. In fact, and very unfortunately, in Demon Inside Megan manages to encapsulate just about every single one of my personal bugaboos for a heroine in an urban fantasy series.

That was SO frustrating, because I totally appreciated what was going on - thought it was awesome to see the development of Megan's life given her relationship to Greyson and the friendships that sprung up in the first book, as well as characters like the brothers Malleus, Maleficarum, and Spud, and the personal demon Roc (not even going to try the rest of that name), who I find oddly adorable. I liked taking a look back into Megan's past and getting some questions answered about how that whole thing with the Accuser really started.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Follow Up July 30, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first thing to know about this book is that it is not a stand alone. There are not enough recap and the relationships are complicated enough that reading the first book is a must.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked Personal Demons because based on the description and the cover, I thought it would be more chic-lit. Turns out it wasn't, although the book was on the light-hearted end. Not so with the 2nd book. This book was much darker, something I relished in. Megan got her ass handed to her over and over and her strength, courage and trust in her friends were really put to the test. One of the biggest struggles Megan grappled with is her new situation, which I can't go into since spoilers (from the first book) are no fun. Kane did a bang up job with Megan's internal conflict. She didn't give in too quickly but wasn't so whiny about the whole thing to be annoying. It was intense reading about Megan as she searched for the answer to what it means to be human and if she is a good person or not.

While I enjoyed the darkness, the emotional roller coaster, the action (which there were lots of), and the hot sex with Greyson, Megan's demon lover, the over arching story did not feel like it moved but an inch. Sure we got to know Megan a bit better but that was about it. Part of the problem, I think, is that issues from the past were still unresolved and so it felt like the story was standing still. Also, while Megan and Greyson were enjoying each other sexually, I was looking to see how their relationship had emotionally advanced and it felt like it hadn't. Yet, I feel conflicted about making this last statement because perhaps that's exactly how Kane wanted us to feel. Greyson, being a demon, is suppose to be emotionally distant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to Personal Demons August 4, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Three months have passed since Megan Chase found out the world is filled with demons. In fact, Megan is the only human in the world without her own little personal demon sitting on her shoulder. Now Megan is the Gretneg (leader) of House Io Adflicta. It is her responsibility to care for all the demons of her House. Megan refuses to be as cruel as the previous leader, but the demons of her House are not grateful. They actually need for their leader to be cruel to them and administer harsh punishments. Megan is still trying to deal with all that has happened, as well as with the dark cravings within her that are getting stronger.

Recently all the Houses have lost at least one demon. The demons are literally exploding! Megan's demon lover, Greyson Dante, seems to have an inkling as to whom is responsible, but he is being strangely evasive. When Megan travels to Grant Falls, her childhood town, for the reading of her father's will, the powerful demon responsible for causing demons to explode follows her. Megan has been estranged from her family since she was a teenager. Returning temporarily to Grant Falls proves to Megan that, if anything, the members of her human family are even more selfish, stuck-up, and conceited than ever. It is here that Megan will learn the truth about her past. Megan will find out the names of those responsible for her association with demons and the reasons why.

Megan can no longer hide from the responsibilities toward those in her demonic family. Her past is finally going to be revealed. Only by embracing who and what she has become can Megan finally face her future. But first, she must survive the present.

***** FIVE STARS! If you have not read the previous title, Personal Demons, then you may find yourself lost a few times.
