The long-awaited ninth book in the Demon series returns to the adventures of Kara Gillian and the supernatural threats that surround her
Kara’s drastic ceasefire deal with the formidable demon Imperator Dekkak slowed the attacks on Earth to a trickle, but her troubles are far from over. The god-like demahnk are desperate to return to their own kind, but unless they can stabilize the demon realm, they’ll be forever exiled—and they’ve subjugated Kara’s beloved Mzatal to further their hellacious cause. One faction of demonic lords and demahnk has a plan to fix their world, yet their salvation would come at the expense of Earth.
Meanwhile, Kara is wrestling with government bureaucracy, backstabbing allies, enemy lords, as well as the powerful young demonic lord Ashava, who’s packing the drama, angst, and rebellion of the terrible teen years into just a few months.
Kara’s in a race to stop an apocalypse, but in order to prevail she’ll have to make a terrible sacrifice or risk losing everything she holds dear.

Praise for the Demon novels
“Mark of the Demon is a nifty combination of police procedural and urban fantasy. Not too many detectives summon demons in their basement for the fun of it, but Kara Gillian is not your average law enforcement officer.”—Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels
“Mark of the Demon is a fascinating mixture of a hard-boiled police procedural and gritty yet other-worldly urban fantasy.” —L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of the Saga of Recluce
“Crosses police procedure with weird magic. Diana Rowland's background makes her an expert in the former, and her writing convinces me she's also an expert in the latter.” —Carrie Vaughn, New YorkTimes bestselling author of the Kitty Norville series
"Rowland has done a fantastic job building her insanely complex world and making its multitude of inhabitants truly unforgettable. Rowland is an extraordinary storyteller!" —RT Reviews (top pick)
