Book Review: The Stone Demon – 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.

2/5 stars (it was OK)
I did not really remember what has happened in the previous books and so I had trouble with the beginning.  I did not like that there really wasn’t enough Xan in the story.  Also I found the story a little boring.  Overall by the end of the book I did not care too much if the characters lived or died.
