In book one of Children of the Undying, readers will experience what it’s like to live underground with demons in a post-apocalyptic world. Rogers has penned a novel with complex characters and an engaging storyline, but some might find it too confusing. There is plenty of passion, danger and action-packed scenes throughout, but it may not be enough to quench the thirst of fans of her previous works. An interesting twist at the end will keep you hanging on for the next installment in the series.

Fifty years after the Demon Armageddon, most survivors are living in virtual reality and underground cities in fear of having their souls stolen. Devi and her pack are truckers supplying these communities to keep them protected. All hell breaks loose when one of the humans plants a spy amongst her crew, causing chaos. Half-demon Zel must join forces with Devi to keep mankind safe, but he finds her to be more of a distraction than an advantage in preparing to fight the gory battle to come. War is upon them, and Zel and Devi are just trying to figure out if love between a human and a halfblood can weather the storm. (SAMHAIN, Dec., 296 pp., $16.00)
