Audiobook Review: When Demons Walk (Sianim #3) by Patricia Briggs (Narrator: Jennifer James Bradshaw)
When Demons Walk (Sianim Book 4) - Patricia Briggs

 When Demons Walk
 Sianim #3
 Patricia Briggs (Narrator: Jennifer James Bradshaw)
 Epic Fantasy
 Penguin Audio
 December 6, 2011
 9 hours and 54 minutes


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson series (Frost Burned, Night Broken) and the Alpha and Omega novels (Fair Game, Dead Heat)


Sham had spent most of her young life as a sorceress and thief, stealing from Southwood's nobility to survive. Now she must face the greatest test of her skills...


A killer has struck Southwood, claiming the lives of nobles. Lord Kerim, Reeve of Southwood, turns to Sham for help. Posing as his mistress, she delves behind castle walls to find the killer. But this murderer is no mortal-and Sham must use all of her magical wisdom to send the demon away. Because the city of Southwood has nowhere to hide-and no time to run...






When Demons Walk is book three in the Sianim series by Patricia Briggs and Narrated by Jennifer James Bradshaw.


This novel reads as a stand-alone. You don’t have to read in order.


When Demons Walk is a captivating novel. The intrigue and mystery were magical. 


Sham, was the daughter of the head of the king’s guard and an apprentice magician before the magic hating Cybellians besieged the castle and killed her entire family along with many others. I very much enjoyed Sham as a character. I like how resilient and capable she is. I also loved how she pulled off her different identities and played the roles she needed to play in order to fool those around her and discover who the demon is. 


Her life takes a turn after her mentor is killed and revenge on those that hurt him in the past is put on hold. Kerim, the warlord keeper of the castle needs her help. He doesn’t believe in magic and thinks that Sham is just a clever thief, but he’s open-minded and needs her help to find out who’s killing nobles in the castle. 


The romance between Kerim and Sham is slow to bloom and is left unfinished at the end. Both are clearly falling for each other, but all we get is a kiss in the end. Briggs doesn’t focus on the romance. She’s more on the world building and having the romance be a slow burn. I feel like this might be the intended path, but since this is her earlier work and it never took off, then we won’t get the completion in this area. 


There are a few threads left unfinished in the Sianim series. I’ve read the four books in the this series and I can say that the series isn’t complete, but still a very fun and enjoyable fantasy series to listen too. 


Narration: Jennifer James Bradshaw did a fabulous job narrating. The audio was mesmerizing and well done. I was pulled in until the very end. I loved the mystery and learning about each character. I recommend the audio. 


Rated: 4 stars

I already read the Succubus Blue's (Georgina Kincaid) series from Richelle Meade so didn't hold -- but that's been recently added as well.  Plus more Nalini Singh ebooks (my library had mostly audiobooks of hers).  First three Cassandra Palmer series by Karen Chance now showing in ebook rather than just audiobooks also.  Not my thing, but a lot of Battletech books showed up as well.


I did put in a librarian request adding missing covers if any are still showing on this post.

Masques - Patricia Briggs
Wolfsbane - Patricia Briggs

Masques - 56pgs
The second time reading this I'm noticing the amateur mistakes Briggs mentions in the beginning of her book - even with some of the typing/writing issues being obvious it didn't distract anything from the enjoyment I got from reading this book! Briggs is a witch I swear! No one can be this talented naturally! lol



I'm totally loving these books even more the 2nd time around - rare for me. Pretty sure it's because I adore the characters to itty bitty pieces.

Some major Briggs love going on here......
Steal the Dragon - Patricia Briggs

What a wonderful book. It also took me zero time to smash through it, and those few hours were such a pleasure, i wish it had lasted longer!

I always knew Patricia Briggs was an amazing and gifted writer, but it still surprises and pleases me how i adore absolutely everything she seems to write. I only know of two or three other authors who can inspire the same reaction, it a kind of incredible feeling.

It was fascinating seeing the same world and people from different perspectives to Aralorn and Wolf. I'm also under the impression that Steal the Dragon is set about 10 years after Masques (though i could be wrong) this makes me a little sad thinking about all the mischief they're gotten up too without me. I wonder where they are now?

Anyways back onto this book. We got to see from more than just two perspectives in Steal the Dragon, but our two main characters were Rialla and Tris. Of course this being a Patricia Briggs novel the characters were absolutely amazing and 100% lovable. They all had incredible depth, with realistic flaws and strengths. Briggs character's never cause me to rage, I love them just as they are.

Watching Rialla try and over come her years as a slave was incredibly sad but uplifting to watch. She had made such progress before going back to being a slave again for the hope of abolishing slavery. such a brave thing for her to do. during her performance as slave/spy she somehow manages to make even more progress defining herself as someone other than a slave. It was a beautiful thing to watch, somewhere she wouldn't of gotten without Tris.

Sorry if this is a bit vague but Steal the Dragon is a story you need to read on your own, i just can't do it justice with my own words.

Patricia Briggs has a way with words, she can turn simple paper and words into full fleshed friends and a world we can almost feel we have experienced for ourselves. seriously if you haven't read her work yet you need to.

I think I'll stop my possible incoherent ramblings here and let you guys decide for yourselves.

When Demons Walk (Sianim)
When Demons Walk (Sianim) - Patricia Briggs Of course I love Briggs Wolf series - Mercy/Anna & Charles - but for me, this would have to be my favourite Briggs book. How could I not love it - the heroine is a thief and a magician - pulled into the machinations of court life she goes undercover as a rich man's mistress. There were laughs, action and a gentle unfurling love story. I always wanted a second book with these same characters - but I suppose that's just a ringing endorsement of how much I loved the book.
