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.

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.

I never would have believed it.

This was the first time I've been gifted a book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I had never heard of the author before this and feel that I would have been unlikely to have stumbled across it in my browsing.

Other reviewers have mostly got the plot down right. I'm not a Christian nor do I believe in Revelations or the End Times or Armeggedon et. al. However the author was not too preachy (which would have been a huge turn of) and the utter earnestness of Cassandra (aptly named) and her gang of daemon slayers made the book much lighter - even humorous - at times

The book is a set up with a cliff hanger ending and I will definitely purchase the sequel.

The most intriguing character is Rainer (sp?) a deamon with hope of redemption. You'll want to buy the next book to discover the path he takes.

The reader does a dynamite job that really brings the book to life.

I find it difficult to attach a genre to the book: Christian/Horror/Humor it's hard to say but if I enjoyed it so much it should have a very wide appeal.

In a bluntly honest review of this book I would give it a 4 1/2 star rating.
