My review of Daemon Seer by Mary Maddox.


Luanda and Lisa share a devastating history with one-another that connects them in ways they never thought possible-they were both abducted and tortured by the same serial-killer several years prior.  Luanda has the ability to enter Lisa’s mind, when Lisa allows her to and also feels her friend’s deep tormented emotions.  Lisa is able to paint the demons that torment Luanda unaware that these demons are real in her friends mind and that they are threatening to change the course of Luanda’s existence.  Lisa is on the run from Psycho cop who has brutally raped and deliberately planted a large amount of narcotics to force a warrant for Lisa’s arrest, so he can re-claim his victim and subject her to more terror.  Luanda summons the demons to help her friend but the demons only interest is in Luanda getting pregnant and bringing another baby into the world they can take possession of.  There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and plenty of thrills and excitement to provoke the reader to read further and further.   
I particularly enjoyed the eccentricity of this dark, twisted and macabre story of these two young women brought together in these extra-ordinary circumstances.  


The book was well edited and had a very pleasant layout.
The dialogue was easy to follow, straight forward and understandable.
Very good description and dialogue by a very competent author!


Author Mary Maddox successfully manages to combine a mixture of horror, terror, suspense, thriller and a subtle supernatural element all in one go.  This is a taunt, gripping, thriller; make no mistake and it leaves little to the imagination as the pages are turned. 
I’d be interested in reading a sequel to this book and would definitely recommend it to my friends.
