Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The breathlessly prolific Kenner checks in with the fizzy third tale of Kate Connor (last seen in 2006's California Demon), wife, mom and Level Four Demon Hunter of sunny San Diablo, Calif. Stuart, her mundane husband, is father of Timmy and stepdad to Allie, Kate's daughter with slain demon hunter Eric Crowe. Recently returned to her job hunting demons for the Vatican's Forza Scura and recovering from rescuing Allie from demonic kidnappers, Kate must now contend with demons who want to liberate their leader, An-dramelech, from within the Stone of Solomon. With the help of David Long, a hunky middle-school teacher who just might house Eric's soul, Kate has tofind the demon-luring Stone and do some major damage control. Also on tap is 14-year-old Allie's intro into demon-hunting and a day of reckoning for Kate's family. Kenner's trademark cliffhanger finale promises further demonic escapades to come.

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–A fast, fun read. Retired after marrying her demon-slayer partner and having a child, Kate Conner, aka Buffy the Vampire Slayer, moves with her family to a safe town to settle down and lead a normal life. Her husband is killed in a car accident and she remarries, has another child, and settles into a happy family life. Of course, when you know about demons and the realities of the dark side, nothing could be that simple. Certainly the cast here is complex. Daughter Allie becomes aware of her legacy when kidnapped. Saved by her mother, the teen now wants to join the hunters. Eddie, Kate's elderly demon-hunting mentor, lives with the family as a sort of adopted grandfather. An irascible sort by nature, he's making more waves than usual as he makes more and more demands to define his place in the household. David Long, an attractive teacher at Allie's school, may or may not actually be Kate's beloved first husband. Stuart Conner, Kate's ambitious second husband, is running for San Diablo County Attorney, blissfully unaware of his wife's alter ego. Now her not quite three-year-old son Timmy's playdates are being interrupted by demons trying to revive a long-imprisoned Mater demon by the name of Andramelech. What's a mom to do? Teenage girls may enjoy a glimpse of what Buffy has to look forward to. Serious adventure handled with humor and affection.–Dana Cobern-Kullman, Luther Burbank Middle School, Burbank, CA

It has been a long time since I have been this excited about a series! The characters are not over-the-top, gorgeous do-gooders. They are regular people, with ordinary lives and ordinary problems...except for the demons, of course! Book 3 delves more into the mother/daughter and wife/deceased(?) husband relationships than the mommy/wife/demon hunter thing. I encountered several "oh-my-gosh" moments when I had to re-read what just happened so I could replay it on the movie screen in my head. Then there were the heart-stopping moments... I'm not sure how I feel about the outcome of the final battle scene. It's a stunner! Guess I'll process that as I happily devour book #4!

Don't know anything about the book or author as this was a gift for a friend. But my friend says she absolutely loves Julie Kenner and her books are pretty darn good. She keeps telling me I should read it, and maybe one day i will but i have so many books, its just about finding the time. I have read other review though, and other people seem to enjoy this book and others by the author.

I really love this series... it makes me think of Buffy all grown up, with a little John Carpenter's Vampires thrown in--since she was working for the Vatican... I was even thinking that if they make the movie I'm hearing talk about, Sarah Michelle Gellar would be a perfect for Kate--she's already had all the training...

Julie Kenner has created a fun series with the Demon Hunter Soccer Mom. After finishing book 3 with a totally unexpected bang, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. What trouble will Katie find herself in next?

The first half of Kate Connor's life was spent being, well, Buffy. Then, she grew up, married the love of her life, had a baby, and tried to settle into normalcy. Then, Eric, her husband, was killed, in a seemingly totally unrelated to supernatural evil event, leaving Kate and their daughter, Allie to start over, which they did. Presently, Kate has remarried, has a second child, and the most challenging events in her life are supposed to be juggling PTA stuff, the terrible twos, teen angst, and being a candidate's wife. However, she's gone back into the demon hunting life and the time has come when she cannot avoid telling Allie the truth. Inevitably, that brings Allie into her world, training to be a hunter just like her mom, dad, and faux grandpa, Eddie, the retired hunter who lives with Kate. Kate will need all the help she can get as there is a plot on to unleash a powerful demon on the earth, one that has been trapped in her late husband's ring. In the midst of trying to prevent that, she will also learn more about his death, and possible return to life. Life can just be too confusing.

***** Kate's world may be full of problems and challenges that make her want to kill something, hopefully a demon, but that's good news for readers. Though the tone of the books has become more serious, the content is meatier, yet still light-hearted in a way. Character growth is excellent; you truly care about these people. The only bad part is waiting for the next one. *****

Until fifteen years ago, Kate and Eric Crowe were Hunters. They roamed the globe searching for and destroying demons. They retired to San Diablo, California, when Kate was pregnant with Allison "Allie". But Eric died while Allie was still young. Kate eventually remarried to a man named Stuart Connor, who treats Allie as if she was his own. Just under three years ago, Allie became an older sister to little Timmy. On the surface, they look like such a nice and normal family.

Well, Kate Connor may live in the suburbs, but she is certainly no ordinary soccer mom. Until recently, Kate was happy with a normal life. Stuart is about to run for San Diablo County Attorney. Timmy is well into the Terrible Twos and thinking about entering the Horrible Threes early. Allie is a teen, complete with all the drama the title brings. That is more than enough for any woman to handle. Kate only came out of Hunter retirement because demons began showing up in the area and Kate is determined to keep her family safe. Few people know of Kate's secret life. Laura Dupont, her neighbor and best friend, helps with research. Eddie Lohmann "Gramps", once her alimentatore (coach/mentor during Hunter years), may be over eighty but you would never know it if you saw him kicking demon butt. Father Ben helps with archive research and helps hides the bodies (after the demon is banished) in the Cathedral catacombs. David Long, Coronada High's mysterious chemistry teacher who helps Kate hunt. And recently, Allie entered the elite circle, but only because she had been kidnapped by a demon a couple of months ago and almost became collateral damage.

Kate is now forced to reveal her secret life to Allie. Time is of the essence. Seems the demons are getting active again.

Demons Are Forever is as entertaining as the previous title, "Carpe Demon" and "California Demon". Those two I picked up together on a whim at the bookstore. This time, I seeked the novel out. Kate is an fun kind of 'every woman' except that she is also a demon hunter. Her teenage daughter has joined up with her cast of amusing side characters. I'm not sure that having Kate's daugher discover her secrets this early was a great idea, nor I am sure I like the twist involving Allie's high school teacher. If the demon fighting scenes, and the family routines weren't so amusing, I would be hard pressed to give this book such a good review. (Plus I heart Eddie). I'm going to ride this series on to the next book Deje Demon and I can only hope Kenner leads us on to satisfying conclusions to the storylines she had opened here. I want to reiterate though that I do recommend this book.
