About the Author

Stacia Kane is an American who is now thrilled to be returning to the States after living in England with her husband, a UK citizen, and two daughters for more than two years. Born in Illinois, raised in St Louis, and a resident of South Florida for a dozen years, Kane's worked any number of low-paying jobs and a few higher-paying ones that were just as tedious. She enjoys cooking and reading, likes gin, French fries, and usually wears black...but who doesn't?

More About the Author

Stacia Kane has been a phone psychic, a customer service representative, a bartender, and a movie theatre usher. Writing is more fun than all of them combined. She wears a lot of black, still makes great cocktails, likes to play music loud in the car, and thinks Die Hard is one of the greatest movies ever made. She believes in dragons and the divine right of kings, and is a fervent Ricardian. She lives outside Atlanta with her husband their two little girls.

Customer Reviews

Great book, interesting ending and some sex action.
The main character's reaction to events seems somewhat muted, scenes seem a little too short, and nothing seemed to be really progressing.

What a great start to a series that I enjoyed so much I read all three books in as many days.

Dr. Megan Chase is a counseling psychologist and has a new radio call-in show. Though Megan hates the show's motto, her boss insists Megan begin each call by stating that she will slay their personal demons. But her clients are not the only ones that seem to believe the motto, so do the personal demons. Although Megan does not know it at first, she is the only human without a personal demon on her shoulder, whispering in her ear. This fact, coupled with her being psychic, makes her the target of an army of tiny personal demons and of a soul-sucker known as The Accuser.

Enter the fire demon called Greyson "Grey" Dante. He represents a demon family that want to use Megan as a way to gain more power. Grey becomes her most powerful ally against the creatures, including zombies and vampires, out to kill her. Grey has three demon bodyguards (named Malleus, Maleficarum, and Spud) constantly at her side, as well as a witch named Tera teaching her how to focus her psychic abilities. To top it all off, Megan's boss has a tabloid reporter, Brian Stone, writing an article about "Dr. Demon Slayer", who has been digging into Megan's past and finding things she does not want to talk about.

***** I found this story to have a unique twist on the over done subjects of demons and psychics. If there are other stories out there like this one, I've never read it. A fanciful walk on the creepy and dark side that will keep you up reading long into the night. A great beginning to a new series. *****

Personal Demons is a supersexy urban fantasy, some might say paranormal romance, but like all good demon fiction, the sin of lust takes precedence over anything as wholesome as that other L word. Megan Chase, psychic therapist (though the psychic part is a secret), is up to her ears in crazy clients, radio station politics and zombies! After a near fatal attack, she's let in on a little secret: those personal demons she claims to slay on her radio talk show? Um..a wee bit miffed. It seems she's been marked for death, which is really bad timing because she's being tailed by a reporter hot for a story and a demon hot for some tail. To make things right, Megan must do battle with the spawn of Satan (both in and out of the bedroom) and the skeletons in her own closet.

Kane serves up a malevolently entertaining entry into the urban fantasy genre, the action is fierce and the sex is scorching, her characters are well drawn--Megan, in particular, is so engaging you'll be missing her from the second you turn that final page--and the story clips along with the urgency of a freeway car chase.

Highly recommended!

When I picked this book up, I wasn't sure whether it was Urban Fantasy (my preference) or Supernatural Romance. It quickly became clear that it was the later: there was only one real possible character for the heroine to be attracted to, and the plot seemed to exist to service the relationship rather than the relationship flowing from the plot.

I thought the worldbuilding was a bit weak here as well. Granted the heroine is a newbie and still doesn't know all the details, but a number of things didn't seem to make much sense. For instance, some humans know all about demons and how they generally seek to mess up human lives, so naturally they are dedicated to ... keeping the rank and file of humanity from finding any of this out. Um, that would seem to be helpful and important information..

The setting was a bit generic too. The city is never given a name that I can recall, and sometimes it seemed as though it had English characteristics and sometimes American.

I also thought the author didn't know very much about counseling and therapy. She had a few buzz words, but I never really believed the heroine was a skilled therapist. Likewise, we only get one therapy phonecall (I think..) on the radio show that is the impetus for the whole plot, and the situation with her partners just seems bizarre and not something I can imagine happening.

That's not to say the book isn't entertaining. The author often comes up with very funny and pithy metaphors and similies, her bodyguards are a hoot and there are some interesting twists such as when she meets up with her worst nightmares and they serve her milk and cookies.

First of all, I LOVED the Downside Ghosts series by the same author, which is why I started reading this book.

This book is NOTHING like the Downside Ghosts series, and I could only get through about 1/3 of it before I finally just put it down for good. It's not very well-written, but more importantly, I HATE all of the characters.

The main character is a born victim. By the time I put it down, about 4 different men (that she barely knew) had grabbed her arm so hard it hurt and all she could say was "You're hurting me." Everyone is angry at her, but I'm not sure why. She doesn't seem to either, but apologizes anyway. People walk into her house and she wonders vaguely who they are and wishes they would leave. People say the most terrible things to her, and she thinks about how hurt and upset she is that they're saying them. She has no redeeming qualities, and she's the heroine of the story! I like flaws (her Downside heroine is a drug addict & liar... but at least she's likeable, sharp, funny, and you're pulling for her), but this was just too much. I couldn't suspend disbelief enough for her to be believable (and I was totally willing to go with the whole demon angle).

She was so passive that I just couldn't take it anymore and had to put it down. That combined with the utterly ridiculous plotline that demons have misunderstood that the show's tagline is just that... a tagline. And that she's NOT an actual demon slayer. I knew about this plot before I read the book, obviously, and I assumed there would be some humor in regards to it or that it would be better explained why the demons are that stupid. But no. Are we to believe they take EVERYTHING literally and they they're also gunning for Sarah Michelle Geller because she played Buffy?
