The Demonists

Book 1

This was a really good start to a new urban fantasy series. John Fogg and his wife Theodora Knight are paranormal investigators with their own television show. Theodora is a psychic and John is an exorcist. One night a case goes horribly wrong, killing their entire crew and leaving Theodora in a catatonic state while being possessed by a host of demons. John is the only one spared and he soon realizes there is much more to this incident than an unfortunate accident. John is soon thrown into a huge conspiracy as he tries to save his wife's life.

I thought this was well done and I found the premise really interesting. As with any urban fantasy type book there is a lot of world building to be done in the first book. This was well written and kept me engaged. There were a lot of characters but I found it easy to keep up with them and I liked John as the main character quite a bit.

The story starts off with a bang and the energy and fast paced storytelling keeps pace right up to the end. I thought this was a fun read and I think fans of this genre will really enjoy this.


Book Blurb for The Demonists

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series and the Remy Chandler series, a new dark fantasy series filled with demons, exorcisms, and the fight against the worst that hell has to offer...

There is more to our world than meets the eye—darker things, crueler things. Exorcist John Fogg and his wife, psychic medium Theodora Knight, know what lurks in the shadows. But even they’re not prepared for the worst Hell has to offer...

It was supposed to be a simple exorcism, a publicity stunt to firmly establish John and Theodora’s thriving paranormal investigation empire in the public eye. But something went wrong, leading to an on-air massacre that unleashed a malicious host of demons and left Theodora catatonic, possessed by countless spirits.

John sets out on a desperate quest to find a cure for his wife, but his obsession brings him face-to-face with an even more terrifying problem: Theodora’s possession is only one piece of a deadly plot that is threatening the entire world. Because an ancient evil is about to make Earth its battlefield—and without John and Theodora’s intervention, there is no chance for salvation...
