Publisher's Summary

Since Cassandra Graystone was a child and her family perished in a fire she knows and sees things other people don't - when someone will die or that a demon lurks beneath a human skin. She sees phantoms. Yet she craves a simple life singing out with her musician brother, Johnny, and caring for her elderly aunt and uncle; to be with her friends, Sarah, a psychic, and Walter, a clown in a carnival circuit. But when Sarah sees apocalyptic events in her tarot cards and demons are everywhere, Cassandra fears she's going insane or something terrifying is happening in the world.

Rayner, an ancient blood demon, lodges next door. He becomes obsessed with her. Never having felt pity or affection for a human before he believes he loves her, would die to protect her. "The demon realm gathers for the final confrontation between us," Rayner warns. "The apocalypse comes. You and your friends must prepare."

Cassandra flees that knowledge until an angelic being, Manasseh, appears. "Your powers will grow. You must fight for humanity's survival after the first wave is taken. Seek out others like you. Persuade them to join the battle. Only these can see and challenge the demons until the end when all eyes see them." She doesn't want her life to change; doesn't want to be a nomad who battles demons. Doesn't want to be anyone's protector. Until a tornado flattens Sarah's house. Johnny's apartment. There are monsters maiming and killing everywhere. Demons persecute her and those she loves burn down her home and force her family and friends onto the road, as everywhere cataclysmic weather and signs of the end days make things hellish for humans. Cassandra and her friends can no longer deny their destinies.

    Would you listen to A Time of Demons again? Why?

    Yes I think I would because I really enjoyed the story.


    What does Wendy Tremont King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the narrators voice, she really brought the story to life and changed her tone to match the situation. Her voice was pleasant to listen too and she really drew you into the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The end times are coming, are you ready?


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed the book. It's an age old tale of the end times but the author made it her own. I loved all the characters, even Raynor!! The plot was well written and fast paced and it really makes you think. I can't wait for the next installment.

    Story
    "I never would have believed it."

    This was the first time I've been gifted a book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I had never heard of the author before this and feel that I would have been unlikely to have stumbled across it in my browsing.

    Other reviewers have mostly got the plot down right. I'm not a Christian nor do I believe in Revelations or the End Times or Armeggedon et. al. However the author was not too preachy (which would have been a huge turn of) and the utter earnestness of Cassandra (aptly named) and her gang of daemon slayers made the book much lighter - even humorous - at times

    The book is a set up with a cliff hanger ending and I will definitely purchase the sequel.

    The most intriguing character is Rainer (sp?) a deamon with hope of redemption. You'll want to buy the next book to discover the path he takes.

    The reader does a dynamite job that really brings the book to life.

    I find it difficult to attach a genre to the book: Christian/Horror/Humor it's hard to say but if I enjoyed it so much it should have a very wide appeal.

    In a bluntly honest review of this book I would give it a 4 1/2 star rating.

    Story
    "For fans of Revelations"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the True Apocalypse aka the book of Revelations, and to people who liked the Left Behind series, which was an accounting of the Before and After of the Rapture.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a huge fan of biblical apocalypse novels. This was a detailed accounting, with scriptural references.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scenes that included Raynor(sp?) because he was a demon who wasn't necessarily on the side of Hell.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just because you go to church, does NOT MAKE YOU A BELIEVER!


    Any additional comments?

    The voice actor chosen for this piece was phenomenal! She accurately captured both male and female, old and young, crazy and sane, voices so that they were easily distinguished! She has a true gift!

    This is a well written and played out book dealing with the chosen few and the christian ideas of the end of days as written in the bible.Had I known that 'god is good,repent now' was the main point of the whole book I may not have read it.I'm glad I did though,I enjoyed it thoroughly...even through all the praying.It was a good bit of fiction and I'd read more.Wendy Tremont King was a wonderful narrator.

    Story
    "Christian Fiction and apocalypse"

    This book had an interesting premise, and while well written and well told was just not my cuppa tea….This is the end of the world apocalypse biblical style…as in Revelations.  The story was very rich in detail….so much so that it made it incredibly hard to get through, to much description for things that really had no impact on the overall story.  I also found this somewhat depressing, the heroes of the story go through one travesty after another without enough good happening to balance it out…it gets tiring after a while.

    Cassandra has been able to see things since the fire that destroyed her family, she knows when they care going to die, with the opening of the story the powers she has are starting to grow she thinks she is going crazy.  An ancient blood demon, Rayner bumps into Cassandra one night and he becomes obsessed with her and starts feeling things he did not think were possible.  He tries to prepare Cassandra for the coming events.  Cassandra flees this knowledge until the angel Manasseh comes to her and informs her that her powers will grow and that she must fight for humanity’s survival.

    The narrator, Wendy Tremont King is a new to me narrator.  While I did not care for the story she did a wonderful job on the narration giving each character a very distinct voice so that you knew who was speaking.  It made it a bit easier to listen to this and I look forward to trying other audiobooks that she narrates.

    Even though I did not care for this, the story was well written although I would actually classify this as Christian Fiction first and secondary would be Fantasy/Paranormal.  If you enjoy Christian Fiction and apocalypse stories along the lines of Revelations then you will probably enjoy this one.

    Story
    "One of the few 5 star ratings I have given a book."
    Where does A Time of Demons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well as you can tell from my ratings I loved this book. I have to say it is probably the best book I have listened to in some time. I loved that the characters were reluctant to embrace their specialness, especially Cassie,Then there is Rainer, a demon who wants to be dominant in the world but doesn't necessarily want to destroy the humans because he knows that this would ultimately mean the end of the demons as well since they depend on the humans for their food supply. To top it off he is obsessed with Cassie and keeps doing things to help her and her family and friends to keep them safe so that Cassie will like him. Not a very demony thing to do.


    What other book might you compare A Time of Demons to and why?

    I can't really compare it to any other book because I have not read another book like this one that I can recall. Sure other books have demons in them, but this one is filled with the legions of hell bent on taking over the world and bringing about the finally battle between the forces of good and evil. Problems is, most of the demons don't believe in angels, God, heaven or hell or Satan. They think the final battle will be between them and the humans and that they will win and overwhelmingly decisive victory.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I am a big fan of a good fight scene so my favorite is the battle between the demons, Cassie and her crew and the angels right before the rapture occurs. IT was EPIC!!!!. Legions of demons attack Cassie, Walter, Sarah, Johnny, et al in an effort to destroy them because of all the trouble they causing with their demon killing. But when the angels step in to help destroy the demons and bring about the rapture and the beginning of the end times a massacre ensues.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The End Is Near!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a conclusion, which I like, but also leaves open the possibility for a sequel that occurs during the years of tribulation. However, I spoke with the author via Goodreads and she said that while a sequel is planned it is not currently in the works so I guess we will just have to wait to see what happens until later. I, for one, will most definitely be reading the sequel if and when it ever does come about.

    I received this audio book from the author in exchange for an honest review!

    "Think -- the Book of Revelations"

    **I received this free audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.**

    It took me quite a while to get through this one because the content was heavy. The narrator did such a great job that I was drawn in and caught up with the events. The story started quite slowly as characters and background were set up. Then it was full speed ahead and the suspense didn’t let go until the end. The story depicts a woman, Cassandra, who is set on a journey for God. Along the way there are demons, disasters, disappearances. Think the Apocolypse. Think good vs evil. SCARY!!!!! Excellent writing. Excellent performance. Recommended for those who want to reflect further on the events of the Book of Revelations.
