The Trouble with Demons by Lisa Shearin

For seeker Raine Benares, a demon infestation on the Isle of Mid couldn't come at a worse time. Already fighting the influence of the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone, Raine discovers she is also magically bonded to a dark mage and a white knight, two dangerous and powerful men on opposing sides.
Turns out, the demons want the key to unlock the Saghred. As a seeker, Raine should be able to find it first. As the axis of light and dark powers, she's a magical cataclysm waiting to happen.

I am a little stuck about what to say about this book, even though it is a great read everything happens so quickly it is hard to focus on anything particular. 

This is the 3rd book in the Raine Benares series. Nothing much has changed character wise in this book. Mycheal is still the good guy, Tam is still the bad boy (and so sexy with it) and Raine is still the smart mouthed kick butt heroine.

I loved this book just as much as book one and two – though I will say that the content is getting more adult with each book. But one thing that definitely like about the books is that there is no huge time jumps between then. You know how you read some book and you finish book one and then you pick up book two and suddenly you are months ahead of where you finished in book one and it takes you half of the book to find out what has happened in the gap…? Yeah? Well, that happily doesn’t happen here. There is only a few weeks (or at the most a month) in-between any of the books - so far anyway. And this makes it so easy to pick up where you left of. 

So here we have Raine still trying to fix the trouble that started in book one when she found herself linked to a soul slurping, army flattening rock. And, just to add more trouble to the mix the demon queen wants the rock so she can release her husband from inside it. And then there is the whole collection of characters that either want to use Raine – so they can use the rock – or want her head served up on a silver platter. Oh, and don’t forget the reapers who are after her too.
Busy, busy, busy.

I don’t want to give too much away but so much goes on in this book that I think it would be impossible for me to give it all away.

A fun, magical, fast paced read filled with goodies, baddies and some that I am just not too sure about.

Time honoured Benares solution – of I drink enough my problems would go away.
