Publisher's Summary

Since Cassandra Graystone was a child and her family perished in a fire she knows and sees things other people don't - when someone will die or that a demon lurks beneath a human skin. She sees phantoms. Yet she craves a simple life singing out with her musician brother, Johnny, and caring for her elderly aunt and uncle; to be with her friends, Sarah, a psychic, and Walter, a clown in a carnival circuit. But when Sarah sees apocalyptic events in her tarot cards and demons are everywhere, Cassandra fears she's going insane or something terrifying is happening in the world.
Rayner, an ancient blood demon, lodges next door. He becomes obsessed with her. Never having felt pity or affection for a human before he believes he loves her, would die to protect her. “The demon realm gathers for the final confrontation between us,” Rayner warns. “The apocalypse comes. You and your friends must prepare.”
Cassandra flees that knowledge until an angelic being, Manasseh, appears. “Your powers will grow. You must fight for humanity's survival after the first wave is taken. Seek out others like you. Persuade them to join the battle. Only these can see and challenge the demons until the end when all eyes see them.” She doesn't want her life to change; doesn't want to be a nomad who battles demons. Doesn't want to be anyone's protector. Until a tornado flattens Sarah's house. Johnny's apartment. There are monsters maiming and killing everywhere. Demons persecute her and those she loves burn down her home and force her family and friends onto the road, as everywhere cataclysmic weather and signs of the end days make things hellish for humans. Cassandra and her friends can no longer deny their destinies.

Christian Fiction and apocalypse

This book had an interesting premise, and while well written and well told was just not my cuppa tea….This is the end of the world apocalypse biblical style…as in Revelations.  The story was very rich in detail….so much so that it made it incredibly hard to get through, to much description for things that really had no impact on the overall story.  I also found this somewhat depressing, the heroes of the story go through one travesty after another without enough good happening to balance it out…it gets tiring after a while.

Cassandra has been able to see things since the fire that destroyed her family, she knows when they care going to die, with the opening of the story the powers she has are starting to grow she thinks she is going crazy.  An ancient blood demon, Rayner bumps into Cassandra one night and he becomes obsessed with her and starts feeling things he did not think were possible.  He tries to prepare Cassandra for the coming events.  Cassandra flees this knowledge until the angel Manasseh comes to her and informs her that her powers will grow and that she must fight for humanity’s survival.

The narrator, Wendy Tremont King is a new to me narrator.  While I did not care for the story she did a wonderful job on the narration giving each character a very distinct voice so that you knew who was speaking.  It made it a bit easier to listen to this and I look forward to trying other audiobooks that she narrates.

Even though I did not care for this, the story was well written although I would actually classify this as Christian Fiction first and secondary would be Fantasy/Paranormal.  If you enjoy Christian Fiction and apocalypse stories along the lines of Revelations then you will probably enjoy this one.

Angels v Demons.

Would you listen to A Time of Demons again? Why?

Yes I think I would because I really enjoyed the story.


What does Wendy Tremont King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved the narrators voice, she really brought the story to life and changed her tone to match the situation. Her voice was pleasant to listen too and she really drew you into the story.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The end times are coming, are you ready?


Any additional comments?

Overall I enjoyed the book. It's an age old tale of the end times but the author made it her own. I loved all the characters, even Raynor!! The plot was well written and fast paced and it really makes you think. I can't wait for the next installment.
