Publisher's Summary

When the Underworld burned, I thought that was the end. Turns out it was only the beginning.

Lucifer’s death was a shot heard around the world. The sudden loss of magic turned the tides for the first time in over two decades.

The humans are rallying. Rioting. It feels like the stirrings of war. 

As if that wasn’t enough, Bree isn’t the sister I remember - and her desire to return to Hell is creating more fires than I know how to put out.

Things are changing. Lines are drawn. Everyone must choose a side. Even me. 

Sometimes, the world needs a hero. In a city that’s already gone to hell in a hand basket, it might just need a demon. 

If you can’t get enough of books by Ella Summers, Annette Marie, Shannon Mayer, Deborah Wilde, K.F. Breene, Jeaniene Frost, Kelly St. Clare, and Linsey Hall, then dive right in to the dangerous depths of New Chicago. Beware of headstrong heroines with snark. These ladies don’t bark. They bite.

Love this series, book 3 was a little slower for m

I thought the 3rd installment of the Demons of New Chicago series was as little slower for me than books 1 and 2. I wasn't sucked in the entire time and could stop it and restart it a little later (books 1 and 2 was really hard for me to put them down, I would have listened to them straight through). Not saying I didnt like book 3, it is a solid 4 stars, I just wasn't as locked in as much. I thought it really picked up once Bree started, bregrundingly, training with Piper. I was always suspicious of her and you could see glimpses of herself but she kept it under this horrible persona. Like, I get being ripped from Hell where you had to fight to stay alive after being unceremoniously thrust there, buuuuut your sister did try and rescue you and you show no gratitude whatsoever. It was sad to see some decisions Bree did be thrown back at her, and the growing tension between the supes and humans I thought was done well. I was shocked about a character from a previous book showing up the way he did and Piper's reaction was priceless. I really like Nat and hoping to see her have a bigger role maybe in the future? The additional people being added to the side character group, esp those with or associated with people with blood connections was a good addition, despite getting a little confused with some of them haha. I did like how Piper had to come to gripes with pretty much being royalty in the supe community, she was trying to deny it and ignore it all she wants but it won't go away 🤣.

I thought again the narration was stellar. I did listen to this faster (1.3-1.4 times faster) because Savannah does tend to be slower than I'd like, but at the faster speed, it was amazing and I don't honestly have any constructive feedback. I thought Adam and Savannah had the emotions down pat, great inflections, made me believe the characters and the walls that were FINALLY coming down hahaha. So much love growing (I choked up with the talk of a possible future family! The narrators really made me root for them in that scene ❤️). Oh and the crushing heartbreak regarding Bree....beautiful and again heart wrenching 😭😭😭. 5/5 easily for the narration/performance!

I cannot wait until book 4 is out next year, I had a suspicion not all was what it seemed so that wasn't a shocker, but I didnt see that twist at the very end haha. Great job, Kel, I am going to be so sad to see this end in book 4 or maybe book 5??

Your new favorite listen!

If you didn’t love Piper before you get to this book, you will now!
I absolutely loved the growth and changes Piper made for the better as she dealt with shock, heartache and a city on the brink of war.
Kel has crafted a story that will draw you in and have you falling in love with her dark and dangerous characters.
The Narrators brought the story to life as they sank deeper into their rolls in this book. You won’t want to miss a single word.

Plot building book

This book showed much growth in Pipers character. It was a lot of character development and not much action in this story, which was okay because we learn a lot about Bre, Hell, Ronan. The seeds of what's to come are planted everywhere if you are paying attention. I can't wait to find out if my hunches are correct. I can see the chess pieces slowly moving into place to give a brighter future to new Chicago...one day.

Can’t get enough

I’m in luv with this series.. it keeps getting better and better.. and there’s always a tiny cliff hanger at the end.. not one to really make me mad but enough to say wth?! And totally want more! Narration is beautifully done and keeps me engrossed the whole time.

Can’t wait for book 4!!

Bahhhhhhhh, quite ready for the next book.

Aftter the way book 2 ended, things definitely changed in this one especially with Piper. Feeling the immense guilt, we go through the motions of her and how she chooses to deal with it. And Ronan steps in and whoooo, we got a bit more between them than I anticipated. Can I just say how much I enjoyed hearing more of his POV? Yeahhhh, I'm all about it.

SO yeah, great addition to this series. Lots of growth and seeing another side of some characters was a major win. But that cliffhanger ending can gooooo. I need to know what happens!

Absolutely solid choices for the narrators, they definitely brought more life into Piper and Ronan's story.

Needing More ASAP!

This series is amazing. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this series, not only do the narrators do an amazing job of engaging the listener, but the outstanding writing from Kel is on point. You are pulled deeper and deeper with each book and I honestly cannot wait for the next installment. No spoilers from me, just a little urge for you to have a listen for yourself to some absolutely Astounding creativity.

demons, magic, mystery and suspense. love this!

Following on a month after the events of book two, there is something about this series I absolutely love.......

Whether it is Ronan, the dark, delectable, sexy, powerful, dominant alphahole chaos demon, harvester of souls (and my heart). He is relentless in his pursuit and protection of Piper. Seriously girl, why have you run from him so much? That demon is hot and you know what that hard body can do!! 🔥🔥

Maybe it is Piper, full of anger, formerly human, now a fully fledged rage demon. She's kept her emotions locked up, spending years trying to get her sister  Bree back. She's snarky, quick to anger but there is a mix of guilt, strength and goodness to her that gives her an edge in understanding supernaturals and humans alike. I really like her, she's flawed and knows it but never gives up on the things that matter.

Maybe it's Nat, I love this kind, caring, sympathetic witch who isn't afraid to tell Piper or Ronan for that matter the truth. She's feisty and adds some good humour to break up the tension.

Maybe it's all these things and more. It's a dark, magical, brutal world where humans are at a distinct disadvantage, but they may have found a champion, one who can unite the city of New Chicago. 

The two narrators of the audio book are very good too, perfect for Piper and Ronan. They bring the characters to life, especially the deep sexy voice of Ronan (more chapters please!!!)

With some unexpected twists, steamy hotness, tension, action, betrayals, secrets and some powerfully emotional moments, Blood Damned has moved the story on wonderfully. It's answered a few questions but has generated even more! Just what is going on with Bree? The story kept me glued to my headphones and after that ending I can't wait for what comes next!

4.5 dark, demonic, magical stars

A great continuation of the story

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

This book mainly focusses on Piper and her sister and their relationship having been reunited at the end of book 2. I love the characters in this series, and it's really interesting watching how they evolve in this book. Lots of groundwork is set for book 4 both for the characters and the wider world and I can't wait to see how things turn out!

Brilliant adaptation

This series just keeps getting better. Piper has her sister back, but Bree is not the girl she remembers. Bree wants to return to hell and is going to make Pipers life miserable until she agrees to send her back. Ronan is such a sweetheart where Piper is concerned. Nat is the best friend ever. the twists and turns in this story hold your attention from beginning to end
The choice od duel narrators is excellent and really brings the story to life. I love this authors work.. This is a brilliant book. I can't wait for the next in this series. Forged By Fury.
