Publisher's Summary

Eddie Drood's clan has been watching mankind's back for ages. And now he's in charge of the whole kit and caboodle. But it's not going to be an easy gig. During World War II, the Droods made a pact with some nasty buggers from another dimension known as the Loathly Ones, which they needed to fight the Nazis. But once the war was over, the Loathly Ones decided that they liked this world too much to leave. Now it's up to Eddie to make things very uncomfortable for them, or watch everything humanity holds dear go up in smoke.

Good book, but drags in the middle.

Would you try another book from Simon R. Green and/or Stuart Blinder?

Yes. I wouldn't buy a bunch at once as his style of writing can be annoying at times.


If you’ve listened to books by Simon R. Green before, how does this one compare?

This book definitely is not as good as the first in the series. It drags horribly in the middle. I was interested enough to plow through but it honestly was a struggle. The book did pick back up near the end.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like the voice acting for Eddy and Mr. Stab. I disliked the over the top style of the narrarator. The voices for everyone but the above mentioned characters are cartoony at best. Also, several of the characters sound enough alike that it can be confusing at times.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes.


Any additional comments?


This one had the Green Syndrome even worst than the first one. For those that didn't read my review of the first book, Green syndrome is the writing style the author has where he constantly has to tell you how tough, bad, evil, contrary etc. the characters are over and over again until you want to go to the author's house and strangle him.

If he could stop doing this his books would be perfect (and about 1/3 shorter) as he creates very interesting worlds and characters. Also, he drags the story way off path to bring in a character or two from other of his series. If you are a fan that's great. If you haven't read the other series in question it's going to seem like a lot of pointless meandering in this book.

This book was ok, but tough to get through. I will continue with the series, but if the next one is like this one I may have to stop and move on to something else..

Demons brings it back.

If you could sum up Daemons Are Forever in three words, what would they be?

As we meet some new characters we also find some of the ones from previous books come to light again this is what I love about these simon r green book


What other book might you compare Daemons Are Forever to and why?

You might want to go back to the series prior to this and it will help you to better understand but if this is where you going to begin you really haven't missed anything because they really slow and can be read all by themselves


Which scene was your favorite?

I don't really have a favorite thing everything is my favorite well done.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The thing I like about his books is they always build on your emotions and sometimes you wanna just keep on going but you have to stop save it for another time I enjoy doing that
