Homicide detective Kara Gillian has a special talent: she can sense the "arcane" in our world, and there's quite a bit of it, even in Beaulac, Louisiana. She's also a summoner of demons, and works on a task force that deals with supernatural crimes. Her partners are attractive and smart FBI agents, but they're not summoners, and they're not telling Kara why they are on this special force with her. 

To make things worse, Kara has pledged herself to one of the most powerful of demons-a Demon Lord-who helped save her partner's life, but now expects things in return. Meanwhile, she's trying to solve a string of murders that are somehow tied together by money, sex, rock music and...mud. But how can she concentrate on the case when she's not even sure who-or what-her partners are? 

TALK ABOUT ENDING WITH A BANG!! I need the next book NOW. Seriously SECRETS OF THE DEMON was beyond fantastic, I was glued to the pages every chance I had to read.  Kara is hilarious, I love her snarky comments and replies, I busted out laughing quite a few times. Rhyzkahl doesn't make as many appearances in SECRETS OF A DEMON but when he does he has me seeing a totally different side of him. The tension between Kara and Ryan continues to be unbearable they seriously need to kiss each other already. I'm honestly not sure which guy I would rather see Kara end up with but im loving the ride getting there. I really enjoyed all the Investigating/detective/forensic stuff in the book, It really kept me interested on a different level than other Urban Fantasy books. You are going to get so many new details and read so much new stuff your head will be spinning (in a really good way). I didn't guess the ending one bit, It was a mystery to me the entire time I was reading, and I was completely shocked with the last few paragraphs at the end OMG SERIOUSLY?? WTH?? Dying here!! Also I loved the style change for the cover. I have no clue when the next installment of Kara's life is coming out but I am begging Diana to make it soon :)

I gave it 5/5 stars
