In Personal Demon we finally see the see a lot more of Carl Marsden. Till this novel, he has been a rather minor character even in the novel he was introduced. We are also introduced to a new type of supernatural -- Hope Adam, again i minor character from an earlier series. Paige and Lucas are back and we see some kicking of butt in the Cabals. One of the things I like about Armstrong is she doesn't recycle plots. She always has some original, something thrilling. Romance is a background for her story, binding the plot points together instead of being the itself.
In this novel, there were two narrators which worked okay. I think is prefer one and Merlington gets my vote. If you read the series, this is a definite good read, it may stand on its own but you are missing a great deal. Give it a read.

The best stories of the Otherworld series are the first three with Elena and the werewolves, but all the others are worth reading. I listened to the Jamie Vegas story, also on Audio and liked it very much, but I was immediately disappointed that the same narrator was used for Hope Adams' voice in this story. The narrator does not have a young person's voice and I had already associated her with Jamie Vegas. Since the author switches the heroines in each story, someone should consider switching the voices. It is a very important aspect to the performances.
This story is good, but it isn't the best. Hope is a weak character. She's young and mostly helpless. Sometimes, internal conflict can begin to sound tedious.
