  • A solid start to a spin-off series

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of DEMON RIDING SHOTGUN (Book 1 of the MagicSmith Universe Novels), by L.R. Braden, in exchange for an honest review. Mira Fuentes is unique. She’s survived being constantly possessed by a demon since she was eleven years old; most demon possessions end quickly with the rapid deterioration and death of the host. Mira and her demon have managed to form a precarious balance and maintain it by hunting down and dining upon those unstable demon-controlled humans. Mira stumbles upon a nefarious demonic plot and determines she needs to thwart the evil plan and to save the world. Mira’s illegal, and arguably murderous, antics come to the attention of Baltimore Police Department officer Ty Williams. From then on, Mira is being hunted by the law as she seeks answers. Mira may have to make a leap of faith in order to achieve her goals. I like the Magic Smith series and was excited to see another book by this author. It was a solid start to a newish series. #DemonRidingShotgun #NetGalley

  • Interesting characters

    I received an ARC from Netgalley. This is my honest review. As a big fan of the author's Magicsmith series, I didn't realize that this book is a spinoff of that series Although it's not necessary to do so, understanding of the world created by Braden would be enhanced by reading at least the first Magicsmith book as the author doesn't spend as much time here world building. The book takes place in the same world as Magicsmith but the location has switched from Colorado to Maryland The MC is an oddity. Although she's possessed by a demon and is a rifter, the demon and human share consciousness. The sharing means that the MC is more humane than normal rifters The plot was a basic detective mystery with few surprises. However, Braden is adept at creating lonely, broken characters that are highly relateable and leave us wanting to know more qbout them.

  • an ok spin off

    Thank you Netgalley for the ARC. I really liked the original series that this spun off from. I didn't realize at first that it was but the author did a good job of linking it. I was excited to get to read this as the author is good with writing believable characters and situations. I found that I wasn't as vested in the characters and the story though. There are some situations that I had problems with that made it hard to continue to the finish. The relationship she has with the demon she has can be questionable at times and her interactions with her partner kind of left me flat. I really didn't like how she chooses to deal with her feelings about what she is doing.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great new urban fantasy take

    I haven't read any of the Magicsmith series (or realized that I was starting a spin-off), but this was a great novel and stood alone just fine. The world building and plot were straightforward, but unique and compelling. Told in a duology, both characters were nuanced and fascinating with overlapping timelines that added a push to the plot that kept it moving quickly forward. This was a fun but propulsive story. I can't wait for more (and need to go back and read the previous books). #netgalley copy
