There Be Demons (Andor Demon Wars Book 1) by M. K. Theodoratus was an addicting read that had me hooked.
Not my first read by this author, I knew going in that I was in for an detailed rich read, full of wonderful characters. I was not disappointed, this book met all my expectations and more.
A solid read, I loved the flow and the pacing. I will say that this book put a lot of time into building up the characters, a lot of introductions, background, and setting up the overall plot. This book, in the greater sense is a set up book for the series to come. This seems to be the growing trend lately, and to be frank, I’m not that big of a fan of it. Now, as far as set up books goes this one was pretty freaking good, and if the background was tone down a tad, I’d say it would have had the perfect balance. It was the shortness of the action scenes that threw off that formula. I think if those action scenes were a bit longer, and a little more often, then that would have shot this book up into the stars.
Overall this book is worth the read, and I’m invested. For a book about demons and war, it’s a pretty fun read. It’s entertaining, engaging and original. Yeah sure there’s some predictable YA tropes, but they’re written in such way where they’re not annoying but a fun nod. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will fall into this uniquely fresh world that will have you wanting more.
