Running from Demons is the second book in the Chronicles of Andor series by M.K Theodoratus. It is a great urban fantasy- with an action-packed coming of age adventure woven through it. There is magic, danger, demons, discovery, mayhem, drama, mystery, and much more…. This is my first read from Ms. Theodoratus, so I wasn’t entirely sure of what to expect going into the book. The blurb sounded great, and the cover is intriguing- so I took the chance to explore her world…… and now I can say that I am so glad that I did. This story is a great adventure, with interesting characters who swept me into their story and held my attention right till the very end.
We meet Pilar who hasn’t had an easy life. She is an outcast, in her society, a Null- meaning she had no magic in a society where everyone had some sort of ability. Being without her mother for so long now, and the older she gets the more questions she has. So many things she wants to know, secrets that her mother must have kept. So, when an opportunity arises to find some answers, Pilar jumps at the chance and sets off on her quest for answers. But, danger soon catches up with Pilar, and she discovers much more about her world, and herself, than she’d ever bargained for. Will she survive her encounter with demons? Will she find the answers she’s looking for?
There are a lot of characters in this story, and a lot going on- but wasn’t difficult to follow along. I will definitely be reading the third book, “Rendezvous With Demons”- I can’t wait!
Thank you, Ms. Theodoratus!
