Review

"The world building is truly astounding and as the story progresses we see glimpses of what went before which made it for this reader very perturbing and quite believable . A disturbing alternate reality that has completely captured my imagination." ~ Literal Addiction
"A complex dance that kept me up late finishing this excellent book. A great ending to a fabulous series." ~ Tea and Book

The Demon Creed is a sexy, dangerous, and action-packed ride into a post-apocalyptic West. I didn't just read this book, I devoured it. ~ USA Today Bestselling Author Erin Kellison

This is book 3 in the Demon Outlaws series, but don't let that concern you too much. You can pretty much jump right in and not be too lost. This series is set in the future (not entirely sure how far into the future, but at least a couple of centuries, though it's lower tech than the modern world thanks to demon attacks) on Earth, though not the Earth as we know it, again thanks to the aforementioned demons.

The demons were just banished recently, but they left behind their offspring and can still interact in various ways. Nieve is the mother of such a child and the demon who fathered said child wants her back. Creed is (essentially) a gunslinger, though he works for the Godseekers (hiding the fact that he too is half demon) who are trying to eradicate half-demons from the world.

Sounds complicated? It is, but falling into the world is just part of the wonderful charm of this book. I felt completely absorbed into the futuristic/fantasy aspects of this book and I liked the interplay between Nieve and Creed. It wasn't a rushed romance, or a forced one, in any way. It was enjoyable hearing references to our current world (Safeway, the grocery store, is specifically mentioned) and seeing how the world might reshape itself in the face of centuries of demon-rule.

There were references and events involving (I assume) characters from the first two books and their continuing stories. Even without knowing those stories, I was able to accept and understand everything.

So - since I obviously loved this book, why not 5 gargoyles? Simply because of the Nieve/child issue. I do not believe it was ever explained just how/why Nieve forgot. her. child. for a year!

I really liked this series closer, the half demon assassin leading man, Creed, was really great - one of his 'super powers' is being likable. The romance was a slow build even though the initial connection from Creed's side is the instinctual 'mine' that's not normally handled anywhere near this well in the majority of paranormal romances. What really makes this work is that while he's hers, Creed treasures his heroine enough to allow her to make the choice as to whether she wants to claim him as hers. The leading lady Nieve, initially seems frail but there is a hidden kernel of strength within her and just as something about Creed wakes her up to the piece of the past she's forgotten, his support allow her to build that strength - in a world where women have very little power.

It was fun to see the pair from the first book play a part in the wrap up and we finally get to learn some of Scratch's secrets. Great finish to this post apocalyptic old west-ish paranormal romance.

Review for The Demon Creed by Paula Altenburg

The Demon Creed, by Paula Altenburg, is the third and final book in her series, Demon Outlaws.
It can be read as a stand alone book, but I really don't suggest reading it in this manner. I believe the books in this series were intended to and should be read in order. Reading The Demon Creed first, I was confused about the setting. The main characters and the plot were were developed so that I was able to enjoy the book, even though the setting wasn't quite clear. Additionally, characters from previous books appear in this final book and although the author does a great job with their development in this book to prevent any confusion, these secondary characters would have been much better appreciated and understood had I read the books in order.

I loved this book. I love all things Paranormal, and demons are my favorite. I adored Creed and added him to my book boyfriend list. The story is so much more than sex. In fact, there are only several sex scenes and they are very short and plain. That was one thing I loved about the book. It spent more time on the situation and allowed time for the main characters to get to know one another. It allowed time for them to work out internal issues as each one had many issues to get through before they could allow themselves to fall in love with the other. During this time there was some action but not much. I personally did not find this part boring and it was difficult to put down the book. Unfortunately, many reviews consider this part of the book as slow. I suggest you one click and make your own opinion. There's something special about falling in love over time and through a process, especially when both partners have so many issues to work through before it happens.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

HE DEMON CREED was a brilliant ending to the Demon Outlaw trilogy. I absolutely loved the rich world building in this series. The fact that this world is our future Earth is hard to grasp as it just feels so alien until a character mentions a Speedway or airplanes that used to fly in the sky. The best way I like to describe this world of demons and goddesses is that its a romance story set in a twisted wild west dystopia.

The plot is filled with tense moments, shocking twists, and a heartwarming ending. THE DEMON CREED also neatly ties together events from the previous books and brings back a few characters to help out. I enjoyed seeing Hunter and Airie from THE DEMON’S DAUGHTER and loved that we were finally able to find out just who the kid they ‘adopted’ and nicknamed Scratch; really is and where he came from.

Mixed up in the incredibly detailed plot is the romance between Creed and Nieve which is a slow burn sort of romance. While its insta-love from Creed’s side, Nieve hesitant, and rightly so considering the years of abuse she has endured by both men and demons. As a result of her circumstances she comes off as timid and weak but as the story goes on there is a sort of inner strength to her which neatly compliments Creed’s powerful demon powers. I enjoyed seeing Nieve show her true strength and seeing her slowly but surly trust Creed. The fact that Creed held back his attraction is a testament to just how honorable, honest, and just of a character he is. The romance is sweet and there are a ton of tender moments between them that I really enjoyed.

THE DEMON CREED expertly rounds out the Demon Outlaw series with a solid plot and some very creative world building. This trilogy was a joy to read and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants a different sort of western romance.
