The complete novel that comprises Demon’s Fury, Demon’s Vow and Inner Demon.
Powerful warlock and tattoo artist Gage has managed to escape the magical Ivory Towers who terrorize the rest of humans and monsters—but at a price. Now he must join forces with his nemesis, Gideon, to stop an entity that is using forbidden Death Magic to commit gruesome murders across the nation. And if that’s not keeping him busy enough, an investigator recruits Gage to help her track a killer … who might be targeting tattoo artists.
When Gage discovers a demon locked away, it offers him access to dark magic in exchange for its freedom—a dangerous opportunity, but one that could save his loved ones. Gage must choose between what is right and what is easy.

What can be better than to get three books for the price of one – I can’t think of anything at the moment. It’s a set of stories that doesn’t take you long to realize that you need to read the complete Asylum Tales. It will help to make these three tales flow better. Some may say that this set can be read as a stand-alone but if you want to know whom Gage Powell, and the other people he associates with, is I would go back and start this series from the beginning.
The stories have me willing to believe that there is a fine line between reality and the paranormal. Do we actually know who, and what, live among us? Look at our history in regards to prejudice and then you realize that they probably don’t want to show themselves. I mean, how would an author go about proving that they do exist – what better way than with a book set like this one.
My disappointment was not with the author but with my reader. The kindle app kept shutting down – error message of “Unfortunately, Kindle has stopped”. When you’re trying to read a book that has caught your attention, you don’t want to keep fighting with having to restart the app. This is one reason that I still love reading my paperbacks. But I also didn’t allow my frustration to stop me either. It just took me longer.
If you’re a reader that loves a character that has tattoos then you’ll want this set on your radar. Having a paranormal twist just adds a little extra to the read. At first I thought the ending of the third book was sad but then when I think on it, I have to wonder if that is the final ending or if we’ll see this author’s characters somewhere else. What a perfect ending because I’ll want to continue to follow the author to see what other books she has coming out.
Love comes in many varied forms. There is the love of family, love of country, and love of chocolate. But for Jocelynn Drake, one truly treasured love is the love of a good story. This Midwestern native spends the majority of her time lost in the strong embrace of a good book. When she’s not hammering away at her keyboard, frowning at her monitor, or curled up with a book, she can usually be found cuddling with her cat Demona, walking her dog Max, or flinging curses at the TV while playing a video game. Outside of books, cats, and video games, she is completely enamored of Bruce Wayne, Ezio Auditore, travel, tattoos, explosions, fast cars, and Anthony Bourdain (but only when he’s feeling really cranky).
