When Death is Calling and Thousand Faces of Demon by Henry Taba ~ Book Reviews

 Hello everyone! Today I have two book reviews for you due to the fact that this author sent me two books to read and talk about! I was very excited to be working with this author again, but for the time being, I will not be accepting any more books from outside sources because my TBR shelf isn't just a shelf anymore and I want to get through all of those books so I can get to more books and end up in the vicious cycle called reading and buying too many books. 

*I should preface this by saying, all opinions are my own and I haven't been influenced in any way, shape, or form*

WHEN DEATH IS CALLING

Synopsis (via Goodreads): He found his love.

But a demon is whispering to him.
He must redeem what he loved.


Westcliffe Patel, an orphan from a small town—Sagepond, has spent half of his life wandering alone. He thought, to prevent someone from leaving him, he should never have invited them into his life from the start. However, things changed—he found his love. Just when he thought life might get better, a whisper haunted him. To prevent his lover from becoming the next victim, he killed the demon. Soon, he realizes the target mark used by the demon to mark its prey was never erased, or maybe the demon never died. In his desperation to unveil the truth, he must deal with his past and his own insecurities.

I definitely enjoyed the first book much more than this one but this was still a joy to read. As I read, I noticed that a lot of the conversations seemed very formal but I overlooked that and I still had fun. It was interesting to see where all the characters ended up and I am very happy to have read it. 

THOUSAND FACES OF DEMON

Synopsis (via Goodreads): A demon is turning souls evil. Humans are losing their humanity.

Keira Kenchuro, an orphan and well-known surgeon, has always occupied herself with saving lives. But when an unknown disease takes her sight, a once-promising career is suddenly in free-fall.
Things get worse when her best friend betrays her. She is alone, terrified, and desperate to cure her vision - to gain back everything she has lost. Until she sees things science can't explain and starts to doubt the evidence of her own eyes.

In her journey to find an explanation for the mystery, she walks straight into a trap. A trap that could take her life. Can Keira survive and walk out alive?

First off, I love Keira. I love how smart she is. The whole premise of the story was fascinating to me because I've always been curious about what would happen if we all lost our ability to deal with guilt, fear, or even pure common sense. This story did it very well and I think I liked it more than I liked his other series. You should definitely read all of his books because they are unlike anything I've ever read. 

Well, everyone, that's it! Have you read any of this author's books? What did you think of them? Do you all have any specifically fall-themed posts you would like to see? Happy Reading!
So long,
~D.
