Down the freebie rabbit hole ...
Darkness Awakened - Stephanie Rowe
Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 1) - Angie Fox
The Accidental Demon Slayer - Angie Fox
Forced Compliance (The Galactic Outlaws Book 1) - Bradford Bates
Witched At Birth (A Paris, Texas Romance) - Dakota Cassidy
Thunder Hunter - Rachel Medhurst
Necessary Magic - Val St. Crowe
The Royal Companion: An epic love story (The Companion series Book 1) - Tanya Bird

Browsing on Amazon to fill in book data and glancing at goodreads SOS group's freebie thread, some kindle edition finds that were free today.

 

Yes, I do know better and the TBR is staggering.

 

I had already read and enjoyed (but still free):  Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 1) - Angie Fox  and The Accidental Demon Slayer - Angie Fox  

 

There were more on that thread (skipping to the newest posts that's https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/449475-book-freebies-kindle-nook-author-pub-other?comment=178853157&page=174#comment_178700740 ); some I skipped for no other reason than too many quoted praises in place of the book description ( or already read/downloaded, seemed to be short stories,  serial episodes which I'm not really in the mood to read...).

Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction, Vol. 1
Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction, V... Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction, Vol. 1 - Inio Asano 3 stars

I thought this was bit of a letdown. Aliens have parked a giant spaceship over Japan, and three years later, life goes on. Thousands died on 8/31, and Kadode is struggling to find meaning to her life. Her father disappeared during the first wave of the alien assault, her mother is an emotional and mental wreck, and the future doesn't have much meaning. Kadode and her friends hang out, play video games, and try to pretend that a big black cloud of doom isn't hanging over their heads.

While the art is very detailed, I thought some of the characters looked downright weird. I pity Inio Asano's assistants, because the backgrounds are jam-packed with detail, and every panel is full of illustration, screentone, and, to me, noise. The panels looked cluttered and felt claustrophobic.

The story didn't engage me, and I kept waiting for something to happen. I usually enjoy character driven stories, but for whatever reason, I did not find this compelling.

Touch of the Demon
Touch of the Demon - Diana Rowland

This picks up right where the cliffhanger that was book 4 (Sins of the Demon) left off. Kara has been summoned to the demon realm by Mzatal. She's unbalanced and needs to figure things out quickly.
I had a harder time with this one than I thought I would. What I enjoyed about the previous 4 books was the paranormal police procedural. And Jill, Tessa, Eilahn, Zack, and Ryan. That is not this book, at all. Kara's friends make an appearance at the end. 
The first half of the world is definitely more world building, demon realm 101. It was both dry and interesting, but I found my attention drifting and would put the book down to read later. It picked up about the halfway through. Answers abound in this one. Kara does some stupid things (and I was disappointed, but oh well). Overall, this lacked the enjoyment for me. Enough so that I may or not may read the next. I haven't decided.

Think of Me Demon (War of the Myth #2) by Miranda Grant
Think of Me Demon (War of the Myth #2) - Miranda Grant
Think of Me Demon is the second book in the War of the Myth series, and the focus of this one is very different. Instead of being in the 'normal' world, we spend most of it in a demon stronghold, where Galvanor is being held against his will. His lifemate is a drazic demon, but it doesn't look like a happy ever after as she needs to kill him if she wants to live.
 
I LOVED this story! So very different from book one and yet with similarities too, in a good way. The story is enthralling, Galvanor's history is heartbreaking, and Matakyli is the perfect foil for him. I was pleased to see the other team members show up at the end, and Elizabeth's cameo too. It ties it all in very nicely with book one, and definitely leaves you wanting book three. 
 
With excellent descriptions and world-building, this story held my attention from beginning to end. If I did half stars (which I don't) it would be a 4.5 star read. A definite improvement upon book one - which was still an amazing read. Miranda Grant's skill in weaving a story is improving in leaps and bounds, and leaves me looking forward to Jack and Charlie's story in book three. Absolutely recommended by me.

The Demon You Know - Julie Kenner

Enjoyable short story about a demon-hunting mom and her teenage daughter. No knowledge of the series is needed to enjoy. It's short and to the point - reminiscent of a Buffy episode. Narration was well done. Narrator does great job switching between mom and daughter as point-of-view. All voices age and gender appropriate.

 

My Rating: B

Narration: B+
