Not quite as good as the second in the series, but still a good book. Elements of the plot feel kind of dragged out, and as always, there is just not enough of Cutter to satisfy me! Does leave me waiting for the 4th book in the series, great job on fleshing out the character of her daughter.
Don't judge this book on the dorky cover or goofy title- this book is awesome! I loved the main character, she juggles her toddler son and teenage daughter, along with her husband's new political career while ALSO dealing with demons! She was trained by the Vatican to do battle against the forces of evil, and even though she technically "retired" she got back in the game to protect her family. This book was hilarious and action-packed, and the relationships with the family (not to mention the friendships) were fantastic. The way the teenage daughter was written was incredibly realistic, and the small boy is HILARIOUS and acts his age. If you enjoy fun, funny, fast-paced reads with a little paranormal action and romance thrown in- this book will not dissapoint!
This book would appeal to folks that have teenage daughters and fantasies about handsome former husbands and amazing secret jobs while under the guise of a normal suburban housewife life. I ended up skimming most of the book - the daughter plot was not interesting to me, or the plot regarding current husband/handsome other guy tensions. The demon hunting itself had some interesting moments. If you are a soccer mom, this book is geared towards you, otherwise I advise you to steer clear.
This series keeps getting better and better! Lots of intense action as Kate deals with telling Allie the truth about her demon hunting and keeping Stuart in the dark and facing some hard truths about David and Eric.
This was the 3rd in the series and my least favorite, but it was still a really cute story and I absolutely love this series. It's a little quirky and a lot of fun. I liked seeing the interaction between mother and daughter in this one a lot though. Well worth a read!
Great book. No explicit gratuitus sex. Keeps bad language to a minimum. Things happen that happen to every mother of a toddler and teenage daughter. Except you throw in demons and zombies with a husband without a clue. Also a dead husband back kind of. Love it.
Demons Are Forever is a book in the Kate Conner Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series. The book is imaginative and fun to read. Most women, especially mommies, can identify with the main character, Kate Conner, as she tries to balance Mommy duties and wife duties with demon hunting. Keeping the secret from her family takes a toll on her. I won't give anything away, you have to read this book!

I've enjoyed all the books in this series so far. There is just enough of everything, even if sometimes a bit predictable (I appreciate some foreshadowing). An easy, enjoyable read that keeps my attention even when I have a million other things to be doing!
Demons are forever
When I am feeling swamped due to the to do list of chores I pull out a Demon book by Julie Kenner. Kate is a model mother of two, Timmy an active toddler and Allie a teen. She is a wife to Stuart, currently running for San Diablo County Attorney, and some how manages to work as a Level Four Demon Hunter for Forza Scura, volunteer at her church and PTA Mom. Her life makes my pile of stuff seem less dreadful and less life threatening.
The third book in the series Demons are forever, continues the story from California Demons. It deals with Allies kidnapping, and Kates first love/husband returning from the dead in the body of one of Allies teachers. To make matters more difficult now that Allie knows the truth of her mothers demon hunting she wants to help, and learn.
All of the books are good quick read.
What a terrific book! It's great fun! Think: Buffy grows up, gets married, has a child, loses husband, retires from demon-chasing, remarries, then re-enters the "work force!" It's pure enjoyment, all the way through. There's just the right blend of menace, demon butt-kicking, and humor. Try it, you'll like it!
