though not necessarily in harmony Fast pacing keeps the storys moving at a brisk pace Impacting action and mystery will keep you guessing as Drake introduces us to a new plot that is extremely darker than what we have seen before Violent and unforgiving our hero is poised to travel a path of pain sorrow and possible death Dry humor continues to offset the foreshadowed bleakness Old and new characters are brought into play continuing to reiterate that Gage will always do what he feels is the right regardless of the sometimes horrific conseuencesDemon’s Vow part two eases the reader back into the story with nary a blip Drake continues to ramp up the action and suspense as the bodies continue to pile up The supernatural community is on edge and conducting their own investigations though no one is forthcoming with Gage Gage is horrified to discover that the two murder investigations may be linked He and Gideon race to stop the killers before anyone else gets hurt including his TrixieThe tension is incredible in this installment Drake gives clues sparingly choosing to focus on Gage and the conseuences of his previous actions His going back to work for the Towers was unavoidable but Trixie doesn’t see it that way and her actions leave me wishing that for once she would be there for Gage as he always is for her A new character TAPPS agent Serah Moynahan has become a major player in a short span of time More light is shed on Gideon and the reasons for his actions in the past concerning Gage He is both jailer and mentor to Gage which is a difficult position for both of them Gideon knows what Gage is capable of should he choose to continue his studies and this scares him; which it should By the end of Demon’s Vow readers are even less sure if Gage is capable of getting what he so richly deserves his own happily ever afterIn Inner Demon part three Gage pushes himself to the very edge and makes some choices that will change him though everyone is unsure exactly how fortuitous these changes will be While searching for a way to stop the killers who are cutting a bloody path through Low Town Gage finds himself influenced by a demon whose own goals could give Gage what he’s always wanted the destruction of the Towers Hell is about to rain on earth and Gage is right in the middle of itThis installment left me at odds On one hand Drake wraps up the mystery in an action packed nail biting finale that explains everything perfectly I found the killers motivations plausible On the other hand while the ending resolves the main conflict we are left with no answers towards Gage In fact Drake opens up a whole new storyline gives some tantalizing clues then walks away Character wise Drake continued to develop and humanize them all to an extent often with some bittersweet resultsTrixie and Gideon left me disappointed For all the sacrifices Gage has made for them I was dismayed to find they were not as willing for him Especially Trixie He was willing to give his life for hers and that if nothing else that should have proven his love and loyalty to her Bronx is Bronx and his loyalty to Gage was as always commendable Serah proved the biggest surprise and there is a small part of me that hopes to see her again and that she and Gage can find some common ground both professionally and romantically I do hope Drake continues this series or at least writes an epilogue as too much is left up unansweredRegardless of my misgivings The Asylum Tales series as a whole is an engaging noir urban fantasy that brings to life a reluctant and imperfect hero whose need to do the right thing often leads to heartbreaking resultsRATING B

Inner Demon The Asylum Tales #33Gage is a powerful warlock in Low Town where elves faeries trolls goblins and vampires walk free among humanity But there are two dangerous entities murdering famili I will never understand for the life of me why an author would choose to end a series this way Generally I am not a big fan of serials but I am a fan of Jocelynn Drake I have enjoyed her Asylum Tales books and the Dark Days series before that I was actually excited to see what she would do to resolve Gage’s issues so serial or not I knew I would be readingIt’s actually a good thing that this story was released in sections because that allowed me to tell you how much I enjoyed the beginning and was captivated through the middle Only to be so thoroughly disappointed at the endWhen this installment began I was already wondering how Drake was going to manage to tie up the story in just nine chapters The action was so big There were so many things going on There’s the killer that’s targeting pregnant women the Death Magic user the Towers Gideon Trixie Lilith and the demons; all hugely important I knew in the back of my head that maybe this would not all tie up in a neat and clean bow What I didn’t expect though was what I gotI don’t want to spoil it But I will say that I consider the ending neither a HEA nor even a HFN I found it to be decidedly unhappy –and largely unresolved After the commitment of reading multiple novels and novellas prior to this point I consider myself invested in Gage I just can’t see how anyone who cares about this story could be ok with Drake leaving it this way Especially when you know it’s the end of the seriesI’m at a loss ARC Provided by Harper Voyager
