To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line...and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

I enjoyed this book! I have been slowly working my way through this series and I am finding that it gets better and better with each book. I hesitated to pick up this audiobook once I noticed that there was a narrator change. I thought that my best move might just be to sit down and read the book and switch back to audiobooks on the next installment. I decided to give it a try and found that the narrator change wasn’t as big of a deal as I had thought it would be. I definitely enjoyed myself with this book.

This story was amazing. We learn so many important things in this book and I found that I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Rachel can hardly get a break. Demons seem to keep wanting to drag her into their drama and everybody thinks that she is dealing with black magic. Rachel’s mom plays a bigger role in this installment and I really liked what she added to the story. The story was rather exciting and I loved how it kept me guessing.

Gigi Bermingham did a decent job with the narration. The problem is that Marguerite Gavin narrated every other book in the series and her voice is who I think of when I think of Rachel, Ivy, and the rest of the gang. There were a few words and names that were pronounced differently than they have been in the rest of the series and I thought that the voice used for Jenx was annoying. It wasn’t a deal-breaker though. I would listen to her narration work again in the future if she were narrating a different series of books.

I would recommend this series to others. This is a series that does need to be read in order since each book builds on the events in previous installments. I feel like the series gets better and better with each book and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.

  1. I am really enjoying the series and liked this one. I am glad to see you did too! It’s been so interesting to get to know more about Rachel’s background and just who she is and what she’s capable of.

  2. I read all these in book or ebook. I did a Read-along in 2014 for the series. I like the new series even better, after the original 12 or 13. Rachel does have a hard time catching a break though.

  3. I want to try this author sometime. I’m happy to hear the narrator change didn’t impact your enjoyment. Sometimes that makes a big difference. I’ll look these audios up.

  4. It does annoy me when the narrator on a series changes but I’m glad you enjoyed this anyway. This is an author I’ve been wanting to read. I don’t think I’ve read any negative reviews of her books!
