✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Demon Rising by DeAnna Browne

While I don't read much in the post-apocalyptic genre, I do love Urban Fantasy and the blurb for DeAnna Browne's debut novel, Demon Rising, sounded like something right up my alley.

In a post-apocalyptic world ruled by magicians and their demon pets, twenty-four-year-old Becca survives the dangerous streets by relying on her wits, her fists, and the limited goodwill of her boss, a local crime lord. When news comes of a fire back home and the family she left behind dead, she realizes her dark past has finally caught up to her. On the hunt for her missing sister, she must rely on Darion, a treacherous ex-boyfriend with ties to the local coven, for back-up. Problem is he’s a pyromancer who can’t be trusted. Will she escape the sticky web of treachery and deceit with her sister and her heart, or will she sacrifice it all to save another?

Demon Rising is available for purchase at the following links.

Momma Says: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This debut novel by DeAnna Browne is everything a good Urban Fantasy should be. It's wonderfully written, the characters are complex, the world-building is excellent, and the story starts out with a bang and doesn't let up. We even get a bit of romance as our heroine, Becca, has feelings for her childhood sweetheart and her ex-boyfriend. We do have an open-ended conclusion as this is the first book in a series, but that didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying this one from beginning to end. With a world ruled by magic and so many interesting characters, I can't wait to see where this one goes.
