Demons Are Forever: Confessions of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom (Book 3) by Julie Kenner

Meet Kate Conner. Wife to Stuart who is running for San Diablo County Attorney, mother to active toddler, Timmy, typical teenager Allie, a Level Four Demon Hunter working for Forza Scura, volunteer at her church and PTA. Back up. What was that? Level Four Demon Hunter?

As if being a busy wife and mom wasn’t enough, Kate has come out of retirement to hunt demons. Well, what would you do if demon’s started showing up in your would-be safe neighborhood?

In this third installment of the series, circumstances grow even more complicated with a deeper plot without losing any of Julie Kenner’s trademark humor and quick witted dialog. This novel can be read as a stand-alone, but beware of spoilers from here on out.

In DEMONS ARE FOREVER, Kate and Allie are coming to terms with Allie’s recent kidnapping by demons (CALIFORNIA DEMONS), the possibility that Kate’s first love and Allie’s father has returned in the body of Allie’s beloved teacher, David Long. Eddie, Allie’s would- be grandfather and retired demon hunter is feeling his oats, complicating Kate’s life all the more. Kate’s husband, Stuart is still blissfully unaware of his wife’s nocturnal activities, no thanks to a demon showing up on a romantic night out on the town. To cap it all off, there’s a group of demons interrupting Timmy’s play dates and bonking her best friend on the head whilst trying to free their long imprisoned leader of all that is unholy.

Kate has to come face to face with the fact that her deceased husband might not have been who she thought he was. Discovering new details of his past casts doubts on what their relationship was and on which side he was working for. So she continues to search for clues to find out the truth about him.

Now that Allie knows her mom’s secret and the truth of demons living among them, she wants to learn to fight. And get her driver’s license. Whichever fills her mother’s heart with more fear is uncertain.

Julie Kenner doesn’t disappoint in this latest Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom saga. She gives the reader plenty to chew on. The previous two books, CARPE DEMON and CALIFORNIA DEMON give a great foundation for all the action in DEMONS ARE FOREVER. Everything comes to a head and I was left deeply satisfied, yet still yearning for more. This series has become more than a fanciful romp wondering if Kate is anything like Buffy the Vampire Slayer all grown up with kids and a mini-van. It’s developed into more intense entertainment as the story grows more complex. My favorite in the series so far, I’m hoping for more!
