Demon Accords number 10. When a hunter is brutally mauled in northern Maine, it's presumed that a black bear is the killer. But an astute local deputy suspects a more supernatural element. His call for assistance is answered by the supernatural community sending one of their very best. If it takes a thief to catch a thief, who do you use to catch a werewolf? But nothing is ever simple in the preternatural world. There's more here than meets the eye... nose... ear... or fang.

I love these books but have to wait for the next one and that is driving me mad
Grumpy Old Git.................
I have been waiting in anticpation for this book having listened to the entire series.
I was not dissapointed. Superb! Role on the next installment.
"I was expecting more"
I'm a fan of this series, so I was really excited that another book was coming along so soon. In past books it seemed like there are always something going on to further develop characters and their interaction. Not so much in this book.
The discussions going on seemed really out of place for the situation. It seemed to me like a small novella that got stretched into a full novel, but should not have been.
This book was entertaining but no where near what the previous books were. It was basically a side mission done by the witch (Declan) and the hot ware (Stasia Renalds), but honestly I was a little disappointed. They just wasted time (in the form of lots of chapters), it didn't fit with the abilities of the team. Also the amount of information shared about their abilities to the authorities... Big red flag that annoyed me to no end. If it is a search and destroy then why waste your time going through a building like a swat team? The story did kind of worked through the major development of their relationship and an introduction to the AI known as Omega (the Quantum Computer). But really... This book feels more like it should have been book 9.5 not book 10 and was created to set the stage for next book like a really long epilogue. It was a good book and I think most people would find it entertaining, it was worth the price and I would still recommend it,
"This series needs to be a TV series"
I'm completely addicted to this series! I waited patiently for Rogues, and finished it in a day. Life can be so cruel. Awesome writing Conroe! And Cronin, your voice acting is on point! If there were 100 stars, I'd give it 1000! Obviously, I'm as good with math as Declan!
"OMG VS. WTF? Best ever!"
I must say I started this series based on ratings and comments but I have grown to love it the most. The characters are amazing and the storyline is out of this world. If you like action and adventure mixed with the supernat vibe this has everything. I bought every book in one day and almost could not sleep to get through it. Rogues is such an amazing addition it will leave you breathless and stunned. I don't want to give anything away because this is like one of the best books in the series but the next book has to come soon before I go crazy! The Warlock is my fave and I love Chris and Tanya. This series is written so well with amazing character development that the possibilities are endless with the direction this series can go. Must read, must have, you'll love this series.
"Best Series Ever?"
OK maybe not ever, but it is quickly becoming one of my all time favorites and it is one of my go to rereads when I need something to listen to and there is nothing interesting in my library. I am glad we see more of Declan and Stacia in this episode.
I am not going to go in to a plot summary, but this book is mostly outside on New York and Vermont locals of the prior books, so we see some new characters and get a deeper knowledge of what else os out there. We also get a good idea of Omega's all-knowing power - scary. I was sorry to see the Sorrow personality was gone, that was some of the most humorous stuff in DA8 and DA9. But overall another highly enjoyable installment.
Oh yeah and JPC- best narrator ever!!
"Somewhat disappointing continuation."
I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand side, I'm excited to see a new book in the series finally released. On the other hand (and if you really like the series, or simply don't like poorly written negative commentary, I recommend skipping the rest of my review), I'm disappointed by the following trends and/or developments:
- Way too much recap of previous events and the way "stuff" works.
- Mostly boring battle sequences, even with the extra gore sprinkled around.
- Antagonists are getting even more dull and straightforward.
- Protagonists are still overly powerful with, apparently, only laziness preventing them from completely dominating the world. It seems like the author is forced to introduce new characters not only to add/attract a slightly different group of readers, but, and primarily, due to the simple fact that his protagonists are leveled up so much as so fast that there isn't a lot of ground left to explore with their character development without stepping backwards, changing pace, or changing genres. Generally, it's not that bad of an idea, if not for the next point...
- Despite an apparent differences in actual powers, the protagonists seem to be carbon copies of 2 or 3 basic templates. At the same time, antagonists seem to be based on just one, albeit with different sets of finishing touches.
- Last, but not least, author should steer away or remain more vague when attempting to describe stuff he clearly doesn't understand that well (such as advanced technology and CS concepts, etc.)
I'm really enjoying the series. this focuses on Sasha and Dekland pretty much exclusively. I like that ther is now two groups that the books follow, sometimes apart and sometimes separate. it makes it more of a surprise on which direction a new book will go.
"Great continuation of the Series."
I loved the story and flushing out of characters that have not had enough of their own voice. A great new direction for the story with new threats and plot twists to keep the series fresh in books to come.
"Another great addition to the series"
I will admit, I was very much looking forward to Chris doing some damage in another book. But Declan and Anastasia did not disappoint. John Conroe has an awesome way of being able to turn any character into a main character. I really enjoy this series and can't wait for the next installment.
"Conroe Moves the Story Along"
Fits well with previous volumes. I was concerned how Conroe would move the story along. Well done.
