Review of The Stone Demon (The Iron Witch #3) by Karen Mahoney

The Stone Demon (The Iron Witch, #3)
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. They demand that the alchemists deliver the Philosopher's Stone, or their reaper storm will plunge the world into a devastating modern-day Dark Age.
Donna is sent to London, England, where she must complete her alchemist's training and learn how to recreate the Stone. But time is running out. Between facing the vengeful demon king, Demian, and collecting the Stone's elements, Donna realizes she must give her own life in order to succeed. And this time, even braving death may not be enough to save the world.

My Thoughts
I got the privilege to be able to grab a copy of this book from netgalley as long as I review it after I have read it. I have been waiting for this one.. since.. errm.. I read the last one maybe.. haha. The title is awesome, I mean when something says "Demon" in the title you just have to read it..or attempt to read it. The description is amazing the bit which made me say "I really need to read this as quick as I can to get to the end" was "And this time, even braving death may not be enough to save the world". This line just makes me so intrigued into reading this. The last thing which made me so happy about reading this book was the cover of the book, its stunning and pretty and amazing, and everything you can say which is positive. Overall I'm so hyped about reading this book.

I really enjoyed this book for many reasons.. first being the storyline which is continued from the 2nd book. Secondly the pace and the writing in the book was really good and even though the book wasn't the longest out there it was certainly enough to fit everything the author needed for the final installment of this trilogy.Thirdly the characters are flawed so I'm so happy about that because if the characters were perfect then it would be boring. Throughout the whole trilogy the main character Donna has made mistakes and in this one its about correcting them and sorting them out in the best way possible. The last.. or.. what i can remember the ending which I am not going to spoil but I'm going to say this "Not the usual ending" for me.

More characters get introduced in this book and you also see ones we knew about from the other books.
I would say that this book was amazing and I loved it to bits.
I recommend this book to everyone who has read the first two book and who love a good short amazing book.

Hey everyone,

As you can tell I have neglected this blog for nearly a whole month now and that's because everything is happening at once, my birthday was last month and Christmas is this month and college has been stressing me out, so I will hardly be posting this month or anything at all.


Next year I will hopefully try to be back to being more active on this blog as I really really don't want to stop blogging.

Please followers stay following as I will be back in flung swing as soon as possible.

As you wait you can stare at this cute bunny :)
