Book 2 of the Demon Accords. It's been seven months since Chris Gordon met Tanya Demidova, and a lot has changed. He's stronger, faster, has the senses of a vampire and the appetite of a werewolf. But even as he settles into his new position with the Special Situations Squad and his relationship with Tanya, new threats appear.
From South of the border, North of the city, inside the NYPD and from the Federal Government. But the hardest fight Chris will face is with himself. Sometimes the demon inside is the most dangerous!

Ok, so I admit, I read all the reviews first (at least the negative ones) before deciding whether or not I would read this series. And the main complaint about this was that the hero in the novel was too powerful, and nothing seems to be able to beat him. While that might be a problem for others it was perfectly ok with me. People seem to love and thrive on drama. The books I read prior to this had bad things happen non stop. That's not realistic either, and if they can appreciate that side of the situation they should be able to do the same with this. Life isn't bad all the time, nor is it great all the time. There are breaks in between. But books lately don't seem to get that. I for one found Chris' inability to continuously get his a** kicked refreshing! I love the relationship between him and Tanya, and I'm eager to see it progress. Don't take the reviews as a definite. I was leery at first, but after reading it I loved it. Yes there were parts that were unbelievable but it...
I was looking for something similar to Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" series and ended up reading the first 4 books of this series => I will post this same review for all 4 of them.
I enjoyed a lot the first 3 books - a steady pace, some romance but never overdoing it, a lot of action and some interesting concepts & names & informations => 5 stars and I think I might read them again in the future. For my taste they're not as detailed and funny and creative as Jim Butcher's series, but still, they were quite light (although I get crazy when the 2 main characters are separated) and enjoyable.
I quite liked the first half of the 4th book (mainly when the main chars were doing their job as "rovers" in the wilderness), but then things started going downhill: some of the vampires were quite stupid, the main character still had his personality problems, there were a lot of open questions and the book itself was open-ended...
This is a general review of the series up to book 4 (Duel Nature).
I've found it difficult to enjoy the current spat of urban fantasy series. It could be since most are about human females falling for vampire males, or perhaps it is due to most being targeted to the YA audience. Whatever the reason, I haven't found an urban fantasy series that I would call great.
In comes Demon Accords by John Conroe. I actually had the first book on my to-read list for over a year partially due to the cover art (it's bad, but I should of remembered the old adage of 'don't judge a book by its cover') and the title of the first book almost made the series seem religious based (bad assumption). Suffice it to say the series is great; I read through all four books in one weekend. What I enjoyed most about the series can be summed up into four points: (1) the first person perspective from one character, (2) the authors witty prose, (3) the development and interaction between the two...
