The Stone Demon, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


When the newly-released demons set the Order of the Crow an impossible ultimatum - deliver the Philosopher's Stone, or suffer fatal consequences - alchemist's apprentice Donna Underwood must recreate the mythical artefact before the world is plunged into a modern Dark Age.

But will she succeed when she finds herself pitted against a vengeful demon king, not one but two Faerie queens, an immortal Magus with his own shadowy agenda, and her own dangerously unpredictable powers?

Donna must be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, but even death may not be enough.

Review by

This is going to be short and sweet as I don't want to give away spoilers. Donna has been through a lot in her life and has come a long way since book 1. THE STONE DEMON was the completion of her journey and follows her quest to the end. There were a few points in the book that didn't keep me glued to my seat or particularly interested. For the most part I enjoyed the happenings just not as much as the previous two books.. I'm content with the way everything ended. I felt like Donna found herself and figured out who she was by the end and that was the whole point of her journey. Those most important to her all had a place in the final installment of The Iron Witch Trilogy and all were important to getting Donna to the end. If you read the first two books in the series you can't NOT read THE STONE DEMON.
