This author seemed to come out of nowhere and blew us away with the first book.

To make matters even more complicated he has 267 other souls to protect - souls that were sold to spend an evening with the beautiful and stunning Gretchen Keene.

I can't understand why this series is not more widely read, not only are the characters captivating, the stories are fun, interesting, edge of seat, and humorous.

I've been a fan of K.A. Stewart since her first book A Devil in the Details, it and each of her successive books are sharp, action-packed, filled with the slightest bit of humor, and above all else well written and captivating. But while the other two books A Shot in the Dark and A Devil in the Details are great books, I honestly believe A Wolf at the Door is her best yet.

A Wolf at the Door, opens the door to larger questions in the series. What is the demon war raging on, who exactly is Ivan, and what exactly is magic.

But if these greater story arcs and mysterious questions are not enough for you, this book also contains enough action to keep even the most jaded of action junkies satiated. Jesse has to fight monsters in a way that he's never had to fight before, and while there weren't any normal champion bouts fought by Jesse, there was still plenty of action between his fights with the other creature sent at him.

For those of you who haven't read this book, you should, but only after reading the first two books in the series. This is not a book that will be nearly as well appreciated without the proper knowledge and setting in place brought on from knowing what happened before it. That said each book is well written, action-packed, and full of interesting and fun characters (especially Jesse and Axel). Fans of Kevin Hearne will absolutely love this and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for an utterly engrossing book that will leave them shaking for more.

I just finished reading the latest book in this wonderful urban fantasy series. First, if you have not read the other books, (there are two) I suggest you read them first. There are characters that carry from book to book, and this third book would be so much more enjoyable if you read the other two first.

I can't understand why this series is not more widely read, not only are the characters captivating, the stories are fun, interesting, edge of seat, and humorous. Jesse James Dawson, the main character, is the voice of the stories, and he is so great. A champion against demons, not perfect, but someone who you would want at your back if you find yourself in trouble with a demon.

Although this book is what I would call an urban fantasy, it is not your typical story line. There are no vampires, shape shifters, or witches. However there is magic, there are demons, and champions. Each book we have learned more and more about the world that our champion lives in, and there is even a demon that is sort of, kind of, a friend of the champion. Well maybe friend is a stretch, but still a great character.

A really great read, I hope there will be more from this author. I am hooked.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Shawnie:

Jesse James Dawson was an ordinary human - with a black belt in karate, until his brother stepped into something he couldn't get out of alone. Now five years after it all started Jesse is a bonafide Champion of Souls, mentoring under Ivan Zelenko. He has been through more in the last few years of his life, than most people go through in their entire lives and still he keeps going. He is a true good guy in all sense of the words; he lives it, breaths it and he wouldn't have it any other way. Except maybe to keep his now growing family safe, nothing is more important to him, than his family.

In the third installment of this series, Jesse's personal Demon Axel is cashing in his one and only favor which takes our hero on a journey to L.A. to protect a women who sold her soul to be the starlet she is. To make matters even more complicated he has 267 other souls to protect - souls that were sold to spend an evening with the beautiful and stunning Gretchen Keene. Now we all know, demons never tell you the whole story. All Jesse knows is that he has to keep her safe until New Year's - piece of cake right? NOT! There is a loophole in the young starlets contact and every demon is after his knew charge and they won't stop until the have all the souls she has collected in her rise to fame.

Gretchen is turning Jesse's view of her on his ass, she is nothing like what he expected. She is tough and smart, she doesn't do anything that doesn't benefit her in some way but its always a two way street. I have to say she was one of my favorite characters, to get to know. But Something Jesse can't explain is after them and its gunning for Jesse because let's face it killing Jesse is the priority, he is the real threat.

The more I read in this series, the more I fall in love with this series. It is slowly becoming the next best thing in Urban Fantasy for me after Jim Butcher and is close on the heels of Demon Squad series by Tim Marquitz. I would like to thank Mihir and fantasybookcritic for highlighting this series to me in the first place.

Jesse is a champion with absolutely no magical powers whose main weapon besides his sword is his word and ethical code. Jesse is thus roped in by Axel (a demon) to protect a Hollywood starlet Gretchen Keene who is housing 276 other souls amounting to a lot of power in the supernatural world.

The author continues to play to his strengths by writing a very taut story with fast action and strong characterization. While being very reminiscent of Jim Butcher's style of writing, the comparison ends right there. There is already a strong hint of an over-arcing story with Axel playing a key role as the story progresses. The author has played his cards very well and revealed information about this in trickles so far but this is like the silence before the storm. Full marks for writing such an entertaining and quick read.

Am looking forward to read the next book soon and would recommend reading this series to all lovers of the Urban Fantasy genre.
