Book Review: The Stone Demon by Karen Mahoney

The Stone Demon
Author: Karen Mahoney
Series: Iron Witch, Book 3
Publication: Flux (August 22, 2016)

Description: They say the truth sets you free, but they have no idea how far off base that is. Free? I don’t think so.

After being tricked into opening the doorway to the Demon Realm by Aliette, the Wood Queen, Donna Underwood is faced with a terrible ultimatum from the newly released demon hordes: the alchemists must deliver the Philosopher’s Stone, or the world will be plunged into a devastating modern-day Dark Age.

Donna is sent to London, where she can learn how to recreate the Stone and complete her alchemist’s training. But time is running out. As she faces Demian, the vengeful demon king, Donna realizes the awful truth about collecting the Stone’s elements. And this time, even braving death may not be enough to save the world.

My Thoughts: After being tricked by Aliette into opening the door for the demons to return to Earth, Donna has two days to create the philospher's stone the demon king is demanding or else he'll destroy London and her home town. Donna is pretty much on her own since the alchemist's have said it is an impossible challenge and are gathering forces to fight a war with the demons.

Donna does have some allies. Her best friend Navin may only be a "commoner" but he is smart and loyal. Xan may be busy working with Maker to get wings so that he can fly again but he comes when Donna calls. And Maker, himself, is on Donna's side.

This was an exciting conclusion to the Iron Witch series. It was filled with action, danger and romance.

Favorite Quote:
"Step down, Cathal. There will be no challenges today." She narrowed her eyes at Donna. "I do not know if you are incredibly brave or incredibly foolish, Donna Underwood."

Donna knew the answer to that, but kept her mouth shut. See? she thought. I can be sensible.
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
