Review: Demon Revelation by Allison Karras

Title: Demon Revelation (Samantha Carver #2)
Author: Allison Karras
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review


It’s been almost a year since evil sprung from the dead cemetery soil of Freeport, Oregon. A year since Samantha Carver, with the help of mysterious stranger Shane Damon and her cousin Terry, picked up her baseball bat and fought the demons stalking her. It’s been a year of relative peace and quiet and a chance to be a normal teenage girl. But the tides are changing. Once again, Samantha must summon all her strength to fight the impending darkness that is growing stronger by the day. Sam begins to be plagued by a series of vivid visions. Dreams of dying under a blood-red moon in a faraway place. Of a man whose eyes glow with the fires of hell. Of murderous demons after her flesh.
With Shane's help, Sam begins unlocking the visions, discovering a dark and terrible secret that threatens to do more damage to Sam’s world than the demons ever could.


Demon Revelation is the second book in the Samantha Carver saga by Allison Karras. I really enjoyed the first book, and I possibly even liked this one even more! In Demon Revelation, Sam is still trying to kill the demons. It is such a huge burden put on a teenage girl. Life only gets more complicated for Sam this time around, but she has such strength and determination to keep on going.

Sam has interesting visions throughout this book. Toward the end, these visions are revealed and came as a complete shock to me. I love the way these visions were woven along into the story. There is also something new that Sam finds out about the demons – which makes overpowering these demons almost impossible.

There is a slight love triangle in this story that I enjoyed. Don't get me wrong, this is definitely not a romance book! It's closer to horror than anything, and there's not a lot of time to figure out feelings when you're out killing zombies. I don't normally read anything horror or mystery related beyond regular paranormal romances, but these books are great. The author has a wonderful style of writing.

I'd recommend this series to anyone who loves YA paranormal and/or loves zombie books. I wouldn't say the book is outright scary – just creepy. This is an author that I think you should take a chance on. I really, really can't wait for Demon Redemption to come out later this year!
