Stalking the Demon is a great fantasy novel but second in the series. Unfortunately, this is one that is confusing to jump right into without reading the first one. I would to have a bit of a summary of the first book to start so it would not have taken so long to get into the book. This is the only fault I find in the book. If the reader had that summary, it would make more sense throughout the book. READ BOOK ONE FIRST. This is a great book but do read them in order. This book has a great plot, well developed characters, lots of action, magic, mystery, demons, surprises, a great imagination, and I enjoyed it. It is about a wizard that is set up and will be executed or have his magic removed if proven guilty. At the same time, he is battling demons, trying to save his girlfriend, the world, find the open hell gate, and find the traitor. I would have enjoyed it better with a summary so I find this to be the only downfall. I read the reviews to read the other one first and thought I could read it and catch up, no, there is too much left unsaid. This book is certainly worth reading, just do it in order. I am going to find the first one and see what I missed, it is that good. I received this book for a honest review from NetGalley and it in no way effected my rating or content of my review.
